07x09 - Under Siege (1)

The board's ordered me to stop Liz's medication.

How soon will my symptoms return?

A couple of days, maybe a week.

Get off me!

It seems that nurse was part of a planned attack on Winter.

I reckon there's something going on between her and Mr Jackson, too.

How do you mean?

He kept coming to see her in the slot, in the middle of the night.

Your plan failed, arsehole.

I'm still here.

If you don't get me out of here in the next 48 hours, the whole country's going to find out how you like to spend your holidays.

- I need you to get out for a bit.

- Why?

What are you doing?

If you keep quiet, that 20K debt of yours, gone, by the end of the day.

Your lawyer.

He won't be much use to you, I'm afraid.

He's not the only person with a copy of those photos.

- You're bluffing.

- Try me.

Michael wasn't able to pull the strings he'd hoped.

So we're busting you out of here instead.

The grief, the loss, the injustice you must have felt.

Where does someone like you direct a rage like that?
