Betts appeals to the Governor's moral side by requesting a day's leave to marry, to which the Governor agrees 4 hours under escort; however, he expresses his reserve concerning the 'registry office' and the 'cost to the taxpayer', to which Betts states that a 'proper church wedding' will take place when he is released. The Governor nonchalantly approves, warning Betts not to 'misplace his trust'. The other inmates surprise him with a joke 'bride' (inmate Angel dressed up) when he returns, but this turns into a scuffle when Betts makes a throwaway racist comment.
Betts last scene is in the canteen hall when he casually informs troubled inmate Davis that he will be working on the allotments the next day, thinking it a good job, totally unaware that Davis was viciously sexually assaulted earlier that day in the same location. Davis later takes his own life, depressed and dreading another attack.
