Trouble is inevitable in the prison, with a race riot imminent. Michael has problems retrieving a screw from the bleachers. Veronica receives a security tape that shows Lincoln shooting Terrence Steadman.
Taking the first steps in his plan, Michael looks for a bolt in one of the yard bleachers. The seat he chooses, unfortunately, belongs to white supremacist Teabag who takes away the bolt, refusing to return it unless Michael proves himself in an impending race riot. The problem is that his connection for Pugnac, the drug he uses to fake diabetes, is black and obviously won't help him if he fights with the supremacists. The mob boss John Abruzzi, meanwhile, is growing more impatient for the whereabouts of the informant Michael tracked down, and is threatening to take the information by force. On the outside, Veronica receives a videotape proving that Lincoln is guilty of his crime, but then receives word that a witness who could have testified on Lincoln's behalf was murdered before the trial.Written by

To break up the prison riot, a canister of CS tear gas is tossed into the fracas. The same type of gas is what the FBI inserted into the Mount Carmel compound on day 51 of the Waco siege in 1993 to try and force the members of the Branch Davidians religious sect out; some people have claimed that the gas' volatility is what sparked the three fires that began at around noon and quickly engulfed the building, resulting in 76 deaths.

Lincoln and Veronica are seen (in a flashback) lying in bed, and they start kissing. When the shot changes perspectives, the orientation of their heads is reversed. See more »
Michael tries to get a bolt in a bleacher but the seat belongs to the dangerous racist Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell that takes the bolt from him. Meanwhile Michael needs the drug Pugnac to fake diabetes to continue going to the infirmary as part of his escaping plan. However, his Afro-American contact sees him trying to retrieve the bolt with T-Bag and denies the drug to Michael. Michael also tries to convince Veronica Donovan that Lincoln is innocent, but when she sees a security tape delivered by the prosecutor showing Lincoln with a gun in the parking area, she questions his innocence.
In this second episode, Michael follows his plan but he has frictions with dangerous inmates and also with Captain Bradley 'Brad' Bellick. Veronica seems to note that there is a conspiracy from the Powers That Be, and probably she will get in trouble. My vote is seven.
