This episode takes place 10 months after the season premiere.|
McManus establishes a council, with one representative from each of the 10 groups of four. (The muslims refuse to participate at this time.) The council members are: Adebisi (The Gangstas), Alvarez (The Latinos), O'Reilly (The Irish), Schibetta (The Italians), Hill (The Others), Coushaine (The Christians), Richie Hanlon (The Gays), Mark Mack (The Aryans), and Frank Manhardt (The Bikers).
Coushaine becomes Em City's teacher. (He used to teach high school.)
Schillinger offers Officer Wittlesey $2000 to kill Beecher and he won't tell anyone that she killed Scott Ross. Diane turns him in and he was charged with conspiracy to commit murder. Schillinger then tells McManus that Wittlesey killed Scott Ross.
Warden Glynn gets a new secretary, Sarah, who lasts one day.
