Plot Overview

Now in the "whack shack", Michael is focused on getting Haywire to remember the part of the tattoo that was lost to the burn. However, Haywire is constantly on medication which prevents him from remembering anything, let alone thinking. Michael is forced to cause Haywire to vomit his pills. Meanwhile, Michael and Sucre's empty cell instigates an auctioning idea for C.O. Geary, who will sell the cell to the highest bidder. Reluctantly, T-Bag and C-note team up for a poker game, in order to raise enough money to buy the cell, preventing others from discovering the hole behind the toilet. Manche figures out what Michael is up to.
