Episode Summary

EDIT
We're introduced to the newest crop of inmates to enter Oz. Miguel Alvarez is promptly stabbed in the chest while waiting to enter Oz, a harginger of things to come. Tobias Beecher is a naive, pale and hopelessly out of place lawyer accused of killing a little girl while driving intoxicated. Donald Groves is a cannibal who ate his mother (he was saving his father for thanksgiving) and Kareem Said an outspoken and much-respected Muslim leader who tells the warden and McManus upon his arrival that "as of today, I run Oz."moreless
