Nate outwitted Sterling and got slapped across the face (typical histrionic brunette) and a ticket to the "Rockford" Private Correctional Facility. A kielbasa of peace is extended ...but the team is still angry at Nate for refusing to be part of his exfil. Nate finds them a new client inside: Billy Epping (Edwin Hodge.) Private prisons are like hotels; they live and die on occupancy. The prison owner CEO, Adam Worth IV, is stocked with low security inmates. As the team runs their con on Worth, Nate senses bribery and a fine Italian hand in the con's background. Worth is a corrupt millionaire and Nate stings corrupt millionaires---Nate wondered if the convenient "pairing" was an accident. The Italian hand comes with the world's worst accent ...and mustache. Since it is the return to bad accents and brunettes, it is no surprise the episode was directed by himself. Lt. Pat Bonanno, still recovering from his wounds, is the big hero. Written by

There are two factual mistakes in the episode concerning temperature. When the crew is planning the escape route for Nate, Parker suggests going through the furnace room. Nate then disagrees with her, claiming the temperature is too hot at 150 degrees. Parker states: "The average human can withstand that for 27 seconds" which is clearly untrue. For example, the regular sauna temperature in Finland is 80°C which is 176 degrees in Fahrenheit. Also, Nate's jacket made of a garbage bag freezes quickly during the escape, even though the sensor displays the temperature is 33°F, which is not even the freezing point. See more
