all: I'm innocent.

I'm innocent.

- I am innocent.
- I'm innocent.

- I'm innocent.
- Innocent.

- I'm innocent too.

- I'm innocent.

You go to any prison,

you ask any guy
who's serving time

and he'll tell you
he's in-no-cent.

I got a bum rap,
I had a lousy lawyer.

I was in Toledo
visiting my mama.

Yeah, you'll hear
a whole pack of lies.

But what about that one brother
who's telling the truth,

the one who really is innocent?

His voice is buried
so damn deep beneath the others,

he's gonna grow hoarse
just trying to be heard.

- [panting]

- Leo!

- Leo Glynn is dead.

I'm sorry, the reality
just hasn't sunk in.

- I feel so bad,
you know?

He and I hadn't been
getting along lately.

- Well, we all had our
disagreements with Leo,

but still, he was the best man
for the worst job.

- Amen.

- I spoke to his ex-wife
at the cemetery.

She and his daughter
didn't want to make the drive,

would I pack up
Leo's belongings.

I don't think she has a clue
about my relationship with him.

- Mary knew.

She said she was happy
Leo had someone.

She hated the idea of him being
all alone after the divorce.

- Tim, I talked
to the governor

about naming you the new warden.

- [laughing]

I'm sure Devlin jumped.

- Well, he didn't say no.

- Doesn't matter,
don't want the job.

- This place needs a strong,
sensible hand, Tim.

That's you.

[knocking at door]

- Stanton has some
interesting hearsay.

- Lionel Kelsch
whacked the warden

and Willy Brandt.

And before that, he helped
Brandt waste Mayor Loewen.

- How do you
know this?

- Kelsch is a bragger,
and I hate braggers!

- All right, take Stanton
into protective custody.

Bring Kelsch to the hole.

- All right!

- You ever been
in the hole, Kelsch?

- No, sir.

- First, you're naked,
so it's cold.

Then you piss
and shit in a bucket.

Worse, you're alone,

utterly alone,
24 hours a day.

- [screaming]

Except for the meals, right?

When you see the hacks?

- Theoretically.

See, some of these guys,
they forget to bring the food,

especially to someone accused of
killing the man they respected.

- Hm.
- Strip.

- Um, McManus, wait.

What are my alternatives?

- You can give me the name
of the person that hired you.

- I thought the governor's
eulogy of Glynn was very moving.

- Oh, yeah?
I nodded off.

- What does McManus
want to see me about?

- I don't know, he just
told me to find you.

- Think he'll get
the warden gig?

- Never know.
- [chuckles]

[dramatic tones]

- Don't be shy,
Officer Johnson.

I'm gonna have to
read you your rights.

- Before they cart
your ass downtown...

just tell me why.

Why--why'd you hire Brandt
in the first place,


Was it because of
those little girls?

- I'm not saying word one
until I get a lawyer

and cut myself
a nice, juicy deal.

- Leo trusted you.

- Let's go, man.

- Tim,

you remember back five years ago

when you announced
from this very stage

that I was eliminating
all high school

and college
equivalency programs?

I'm gonna give a speech
praising education

as the one last hope
prisoners have,

and naming the new program
after Leo Glynn.

How the times have changed.

Maybe it's me.
Maybe I've mellowed.

- We've just received a call
from Detective Tarnowski.

Adrian Johnson has implicated
Perry in the murders

of Loewen, Brandt and Leo.

- What?

- You're next, Devlin.

- Governor, we need to--
- Shut up, Perry.

Cancel the press conference.

Let's get back to the mansion.

These charges are scurrilous.

It's a vain attempt
to attack a fine, young man.

- Yeah, who's one step away
from getting fucked up the ass,

unless you can make a deal too.

- Hey, I only--
- Shut up!

- I'll handle this.
- How?

See, I don't see
what you can do,

except type out
your resignation.

You know what the irony is?

The irony is that
Wilson Loewen got you elected,

and now, Loewen's ghost
is gonna bring you down.

My only hope is that
when you go to prison,

they send you here to Oz.

- Ellie, you coming?

- No, I'm not,
you little prick.

- I accept
your resignation.

Yours too, McManus.

- I'm not going anywhere.
- We'll see about that.


- Thank you all
for coming.

Leo Glynn's untimely death

has left an enormous void
in Oswald's--

- Can the speech, commissioner.

Just tell us who's
gonna be our new boss.

- All righty.

Some of you may already know him

from when he
worked here previously.

- Oh, no.

- More recently, he's been
doing a bang-up job at Lardner,

Martin Querns.

- Hello, everybody.

I'm back.

Tim McManus,

come on down.

I don't know what you did
to piss off the governor,

but he sure as shit
wants your head

hanging off a spike
on the north tower.

- So, I'm out.

- Consider this
your month's notice.

- Fabulous.

- Of course, a lot
can happen in a month.

This murder scandal
could mean the end

of Devlin's days in office.

- I don't know.

He's skated through worse
and come out on top.

- Like I said,
we have to wait and see.

Of course, if he goes,
you may not have to.

I wasn't lying when I said

I was a big fan
of the concept of Em City.

- Did he fire you?

- I'm not sure.

- Sister.

Get your buns
in here.

- This is a restraint chair.

It will be placed in the hole.

If you disobey,
you will be placed in it.

I wanted you all
to see this monster,

to let you know I will not
take any shit from anyone.

So, remember...

Don't fuck with Querns.

[inmates shouting]

- Here's a story,
and it's true.

Mariano Absun escaped
the Connor Correctional Center

in Hominy, Oklahoma,

by hiding in the back
of a garbage truck.

His body was found
two hours later,

crushed to death
in the truck's trash tray.

Now, Absun was only serving
a three-year sentence.

Three years.

That's how desperate he was
to get the fuck out.

Before she went

- I'm going

- How?

- I'm gonna
read to you.

"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,"
chapter one.

Tom plays, fights and hides.

No answer.

No answer.

"What's going on with that boy?

"I wonder, you, Tom!"

The old lady
pulled her spectacles down

and looked out over them
about the room,

then she put them up,
and looked out under them.

She seldom or never
looked through them

for so small a thing as a boy.

- I just had another visit
with Norma and the baby.

Fatherhood is
a remarkable thing.

- I wouldn't know.

- What do you mean?
You had Alex.

- But I didn't raise him.

He never even knew I was alive
until he was a grown man.

I was never
a father to my son.

- Oh, and here's Ruby,
who's not my own,

who I will
help to raise.

Still, I'd like some day
to have my own offspring,

from my own loins,
as it were.

- Agamemnon, please.

I've just eaten.

- Well, I guess
it's a fool's goal,

since we're not
allowed conjugals.

And by the time I'm out,

Norma will be past
her child-bearing years.

- There are alternatives.

Artificial insemination,
for example.

- Sure,
I could jerk off,

and then overnight my sperm
to Norma next-day delivery.

Bob, you--
you're brilliant.

- The commissioner
says no.

- No?
How can he say no?

- Well, he doesn't want to start
an avalanche of requests

for prisoners to
artificially inseminate.

He says that it opens up
the state to safety,

and legal risks.

- But I have a right
to procreate.

- Well, not necessarily.

The United States Supreme Court
guarantees a prisoner

the right to marry
and not to be sterilized.

Now, the justices have never
expressed an opinion

on prisoners
bearing children.

- What can we do?

- We? Nothing.

You should contact the society
for prisoners' rights,

have them
assign you a lawyer.

- I will, goddamn it.

Just because I broke the law
doesn't mean I'm not a man.

- True, but, Busmalis,

not every man was
supposed to be a father.

- Every man should
have a right to choose.

- Whoa, go easy with
that stuff, Agamemnon.

You're looking
like an oil slick.

- You're right.
I'm nervous.

The judicial panel
is meeting today

to decide if I can
artificially inseminate Norma.

If they say yes,

I could be a father
by Christmas.

- Have you talked this through
with Dr. Nathan?

The entire procedure
is costly, time consuming

and most often

- Why are you always trying
to dampen my spirits?

- Because you constantly rush
into things without thinking,

only to get
your heart broken.

- That's not true.

Okay, maybe
it's a little true.

But, Bob, in Oz,
that's all we have--

hopes and dreams.

- Having reviewed
the testimony and evidence,

we have reached
the following conclusion.

Since the state has the right
to eliminate conjugal visits,

we do not see restricting
artificial insemination

as unreasonable.

And though we agree
that to procreate

is a fundamental right,

the very purpose
of punishment

is to take away
fundamental rights.

We, therefore, deny
the plaintiff's petition.

- We lost?

- I'm afraid so.

- Well, we--we'll appeal.

- No, I'm sorry,
there's no appeal.

- Back to your cage,

- No.
- Don't give me any lip.

- Wait, you bastard, wait!

This is my life
we're talking about, my life!

- Back off!
- You cocksucker!

- Get this man off me!
- I'll kill you, motherfucker!

But it isn't fair.

It isn't fair!

It isn't fair!

- Morning.

What's wrong with her?

- Claire asked me
for a second opinion.

- Is she sick?

- She's pregnant.

- You asked to see me,

- Yes, come in,
sit down.

- What's this about?

- Your being pregnant.

I'm not trying to insinuate
myself into anything.

I just wanted you to know
that if you want to talk...

- What I tell you
remains between us, right?

Because I could
lose my job.

- I promise.

- My relationship with men
in general has been disastrous,

yet here I am
surrounded by them.

Which is why...

Father, since coming to Oz,
I have fucked a lot of men.

[sensual moaning]

Oh, yeah!

A lot of prisoners.


You're shocked.

- In a way, yes.

And in a way, no.

- Now, I'm pregnant
by one of them.

- You know which one?

- Well, my best guess is
the baby'll be golden brown

and marinated in salsa,

which means
I can't raise him or her

in my redneck

I can't afford to move.

And if I could,
where would I go?

Little Havana?

I am screwed.

- Claire, are you thinking of
having an abortion, because--

- Oh, save your
breath, Father.

You Catholics aren't the only
ones who are against abortion.

gonna do?

- Take a leave of absence,

drop the calf,

and from then on,
keep my fuckin' legs crossed.

Be adored by millions.

the fringe benefits.

I want to be famous.

I don't want to die

We adopted three.

things about working in Oz

You're right, as usual.

Let me--let me
make it up to you.

- You do something for me;
kill Timmy Kirk.

- What the--
- Ahh!

- Ugh!

- Ray, Ray.
Listen to this.

After his mother left,
Jaz Hoyt really opened up.

He told me it was
the Reverend Cloutier

who ordered him to kill
Timmy Kirk the first time.

- Well, how is
that possible?

Cloutier was
in the burn unit.

He was barely able
to make sounds,

let alone speak.

- Well, he says that Cloutier
appeared to him in his cell

completely normal.

- An apparition?

- Afterward, when he was
sent to solitary,

his biker buddies
decided to take revenge.

They went to the burn unit
and carried Cloutier away.

- To where?

- Well, Hoyt says
that's the one fact

he will reveal
only to you.

- Where did they take
the reverend Cloutier?

- If I tell you,

the other bikers,
they'll kill us both.

- Hoyt, I need to know.

- Here's a story,
and it's true.

The Oregon legislature

passed a law authorizing
the state DOC

to charge inmates
for costs associated

with their imprisonment.

We're talking such
luxury items as medical care,

administrative expenditures,
room and board,

which they estimate
costs $65.00 a day,

or $25,000
a year per prisoner.

Given that Oregon
pays those incarcerated

only $10.80 a week
for work,

you could end up
leaving prison in debt,

and then be forced
to commit a crime, you know,

in order to make restitution
which, of course,

could lead you
back to prison

where you'd have to pay.


I guess you'd call that
a vicious circle.

Give it up, boys.

- Sister Pete,
this is Noel Behn

from the society
for prisoners' rights.

- Oh, hello.

- Good to meet you, Sister.
- Come on in.

- I asked Noel here to talk over
the Lemuel Idzik case.

- What's to talk about?

He confessed to
the murder of Omar White,

was sentenced
to death.

- I think the case should be
reviewed by the appeals court.

- Why?

- Idzik's lawyer slept
through most of the trial,

and the judge
said nothing.

- Justice by
assembly line.

- And Idzik
made no protest?

- The man's indifference
to his own fate suggests

some sort of
mental instability.

We'd like you
to determine the extent.

- Well, you know me,

if there's a way to get
somebody out of death row,

I will find it.

- I wanted Omar White
to exterminate me.

When he refused,
I killed him,

I'd be sent here,

that the State would do
what Omar wouldn't.

- So all of this is an elaborate
way to commit suicide?

- You could say that.

- Is that why you
killed Kareem Said?

- No.

That was revenge.

- Revenge?

What did Kareem Said
do to you?

Lemuel, clearly you have
made a choice to die.

Don't go to your grave without
anyone understanding the reason.

What did Kareem do to you

that was so terrible?

- He bought me
a cup of coffee

at an outdoor cafe
in Istanbul.

That was before
he'd converted to Islam.

He was young,


We had a casual

during which he told me
about stardoom,


you know, about how
the universe would end.

He was laughing
about it.

But his words...

Cut into my heart.

His words...

ravaged my soul!

His words...

Killed me!

- And you killed him.

- Bizarre, isn't it,

how one man's
chatty conversation,

how one man's laughter
can level someone else.

When he walked away
from that table,

he probably forgot
about what we discussed.

He certainly
forgot who I was.

It was a moment, you know,
one of many for him.

But for me, it was the most
significant moment of my life.

And I can't help think
that by shooting Kareem Said,

I kept myself from doing
something far worse.

- The death sentence
of Lemuel Idzik,

convicted of killing
a fellow inmate

at the Oswald
correctional facility

was overturned today.

- What?
- Motherfucker!

- [screaming]

Come in.

murdering Brice Tibbetts--

- That's a dead issue.

But Keller did kill
two other men,

Byam Lewis

And Keller's

and I'm sure that in some point
in your time together,

he must have
mentioned something.

No, he's too sly for that.

Now, that he's seen us

"It was an accident."

what he wants to hear,

I'll be home
in a matter of weeks

while Keller heads
back to death row,

marking off
the calendar.

- And all you have to do
is subvert the truth.

The question is...

can you live the rest
of your life knowing

it was built on a lie?

- But it's not
a lie exactly.

I mean,
Keller is guilty.

- Yes, but it hasn't
been proven.

Your saying that
he said something

he didn't say
is not proof.

- How did a real knife
get on the prop table?

- I don't know.

- Suzanne Fitzgerald says
there were no problems

during the rehearsals.

- Schillinger and Keller
seemed very friendly.

They were horsing around
and stuff.

- What about Beecher?

- He--he seemed fine.

Distant, but not in
the least bit confrontational.

- All of which jibes
with the statement you made

immediately after
you stabbed Schillinger.

Do you have anything
to add at this time?

- No, sir.

- Okay.

We've decided to rule
that Schillinger's death

was accidental.

- You're coming back
to Em City.

- Thank you.

Thank you, all.


What are you
doing here?

- I asked Querns
to transfer me back.

I guess he
convinced McManus.

Even made us roomies.

- No.
- Yeah.

- Nothing's changed, Chris.

- I know, you've got
the top bunk just like before.

- I mean my feelings
haven't changed.

I'm gonna
go to McManus,

ask him to move me
to another pod,

- Toby.
- Move me to Gen Pop.

- Toby, goddamn it.

- Look, will you get it
through your head,

I don't want you
in my life.

- After everything
I've done for you.

- Yeah, like almost getting me
sent to death row.

- Hey, if it weren't
for me, pal,

you'd be in the morgue
instead of Schillinger.

- Maybe.
- Yeah.

- But if you think I got any
satisfaction out of killing him,

you're wrong.

You don't know
me at all.

- I don't know you?

I know you're free
of that Nazi fuck.

- No, I'm not.

No more free than
I am of his two sons,

or Metzger
or Cathy Rockwell.

Chris, after six years
in this place,

I'm not sure about
anything anymore.

Heaven, justice...


The only thing I believe in
is life.

Every life
is precious.

Not just
yours or mine,

but every single person
on the planet who's breathing,

their lives
are precious.

And the loss of
a single life, even in Oz,

is my loss too.

- Well, that's bullshit.

The only thing
that matters is you and me.

- I don't expect you
to understand.

You kill for sport.

- I don't understand?

I'm not the one who
got here by accident, pal.

I kill
because I have to.

I kill what stands
in my way,

like the Aryans.

- What?

What about the Aryans?

- They're no threat
to us anymore.

I took care of that.

- How?
How'd you take care of it?

- Never mind, kiss me.

- Wait.

Answer me
this first, okay?

I want you
to be honest, okay?

Did you purposely
fuck up my parole?

[gate buzzes]

- Toby, I couldn't face
the rest of my life

living in here
without you.

Don't you see?
I did what I did out of love.

- If you really love me,

then leave me alone.

- I can't.

- Listen to me.
Listen to me.

I loved alcohol.

I loved heroin.

I had to put them behind me
because they were poison.


You are death.

Let me live.

- I can't.
- Motherfucker!

- Toby, I love you.

Beecher, don't!

- No!

- No!


- [chuckles]

God is a funny fellow,

See, I decided this morning
to cooperate with the FBI

to help them
convict Keller.

- Oh?

- And now,
with Keller dead,

that opportunity
is gone,

and with it,
my chance for freedom.

In fact, I may be
facing the death penalty

for Keller's murder.

- You didn't push him,
did you?

- No.

- Well, let's hope this time
the truth works for you.

- You know, he said he did
what he did out of love.

- Oh, love is used

as an excuse
for so many things.

- No.

He really did
love me, Sister.

- Yes.

- And I loved him.

When God was
designing the universe,

why did he make
something so wonderful

so fucking painful?

- I think he thought
we could handle it.

- Beecher.

I'm going to move you
back to Unit J.

I'm concerned
about the Aryans

taking revenge on you
for Schillinger.

- I said the same thing
to Keller, and he said,

"Don't worry,
I've handled the Aryans."

- What did he mean by that?

check it out.

You got a package.

What the fuck is this?

- Yes, plus two C.O.'s.

- From what?

any number of toxins

I cordoned off the area,

this is way beyond
my expertise.

- What do we do?

- Call the state
bio-terrorism unit,

and clear out
the entire complex, fast!

- Proceed immediately
to level one,

emergency evacuation.

- Where are we going
to take them?

- Beats the shit
out of me.

All I've been told is

the move is temporary.

We'll be back,

- Emergency evacuation.

[indistinct shouting]

Come on, let's go!

Come on.

Move to the back

- So, what have
we learned?

What's the lesson
for today,

for all the never-ending days
and restless nights in Oz?

That morality
is transient?

That virtue cannot exist
without violence?

That to be honest
is to be flawed?

That the giving
and taking of love,

both debases
and elevates us?

That God or Allah or Yahweh
has answer to questions

we dare not even ask?

The story is simple.

A man lives
in prison and dies.

How he dies,
that's easy.

The who and the why
is the complex part,

the human part,

the only part worth...
