Peter panics when Anna shows up to visit him in solitary. He tells her that Sonny has put a bullseye on his back. She’s surprised there’s room for another one, but he’s safer there than anywhere else. Sonny is too smart to risk killing him when he’s being watched by the cops. But Peter has made a lot of enemies, which means he has to save himself. He has to own all his crimes, take his punishment, and relinquish his fight for Louise. If he’s willing to do all that, maybe there is something she can do for him. “Louise and Maxie are what keep me human. I won’t give them up,” he says. Anna snaps that death isn’t good enough for him. Once she leaves, his food arrives. He passes on it at first but then changes his mind.
