Matty's upbeat mood turns to one of concern when he finds that prison hardman Les has moved into his cell. Although Matty has been isolated from the other inmates so far, the situation is changing due to a lack of space.

The new living arrangements get off to a bad start when Les taunts his new cellmate with some unnerving jokes. Matty can't help fearing for his safety as he wonders how seriously to take Les's comments.
