We learn who Whistler is in this episode. It isn’t pretty and Michael still has to figure out how to break out.
At the same time, Michael needs to find a way to take the bounty off from Whistler’s head. If any of the other prisoners see him, they will kill him.
Things are really getting interesting early in this season of Prison Break. I think that it’s actually become better over the seasons. It’s another excellent episode and I wonder what exactly the company wants of Whistler. We will just have to wait and find out. This early in the season, the players in Sona don’t trust each other. Michael needs to make peace with everyone and rally them if he wants to escape from prison again. He has been told that once he is outside of the gates, all will be taken care of.
Sona has very little contact with the outside world. The prison has been abandoned by guards and security. It will be extremely hard to get out. On top of that, Michael hasn’t got very long to get a plan together. He has only a few days. It looks like each of this season’s episodes will chronicle a day in the lives of the prisoners.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
