Within Sona, Michael is confronted by Mahone, who wants the pair to ally in order to survive within the prison, but Michael refuses because he can't get past the fact that Mahone shot and killed his father. Later, Michael and Mahone are among the new prisoners who are brought before Lechero, a prisoner who effectively governs the entirety of Sona and its residents. Lechero tells the new prisoners about their main rule: if one man has an issue with another, they are to fight to the death in an organised event. During the meeting, Lechero makes known that he is aware of Michael's history and is wary of the new prisoner. Soon after this, T-Bag enters the prison and immediately tries to integrate himself into Lechero's inner circle.
Bellick discovers that he is at the very bottom of the social strata within Sona, forced to clean the bathroom and perform other such tasks. While alone in the prison's basement, he is contacted by another prisoner living in the sewers, and agrees to pass on a message in exchange for some scraps of rat meat.
A prisoner accuses Michael of stealing his stash of drugs - a set-up by Lechero - and challenges him to a fight, which Michael is forced to accept or else face Lechero's lackeys. In the frenzy before the fight, Bellick slips written messages into both Michael and his opponent's pockets. Mahone advises Michael to fight dirty, and Michael does once the fight commences, but even when his opponent is practically beaten he refuses to kill the man. The prisoner is slipped a shank and tries to stab Michael in the back but Mahone intervenes by attacking and killing the prisoner. Since weapons were against the rules of combat in the event, Lechero is forced to let Michael and Mahone off. When the dead body is dumped outside the prison, a woman searches his pockets and finds the written message.
Meanwhile, Lincoln searches Panama City for Sara and is momentarily worried when the Chief of Police brings him to the morgue to identify a body, but it is revealed that it is not Sara's. Later, he is contacted by LJ, and goes to meet his son at a restaurant in Panama City. He is instead met by a representative of the Company (portrayed by Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). At the end of the episode Lincoln visits Michael at the prison and tells him what the Company had said: they had kidnapped both LJ and Sara, and unless Michael can break out of Sona with another prisoner in tow - Whistler, the man in the sewers - their loved ones will be killed.
