In Oswald Maximum Security Penitentiary, Tim McManus opens Em City, an experimental unit that is different from all the cell blocks in Oz. We get a glimpse of daily routine life within Oz itself. Former lawyer, Tobias Beecher is jailed for DUI and finds it difficult to adjust to prison life. After being roomed with one of the most dangerous inmates, Simon Adebisi, Beecher is saved by Aryan inmate, Vernon Schillinger - only to find that things go from bad to worse. Muslim Kareem Said arrives and says that he now runs Oz. Another inmate, Dino Ortalani, makes enemies fast and ends up getting burned.
