Michael doesn’t see a way out and it’s already been three days. He has 7 to break out Whistler. He tries to find help in the prison, but Lechero doesn’t give him the time of day. He surmises that Link will have to find LJ and Sara and break them out. Link has got a few clues to try and find them.
Michael finally talks with Whistler and he finds out about the book and what it means. It’s a logbook of a location where Whistler brought a naturalist to take samples and readings. The logbook is the only way to find this location again. The company wants it desperately for some reason.
Towards the end of the episode, Link gets a nasty surprise for trying to break his family out and Michael tries to earnestly come up with a plan to get out of Sona. Another gripping episode, I can’t wait to find out exactly which body part is in the box. I think it’s a hand. I’m not sure. It’s large enough to hold a head. However if the company kills LJ, they loose their hold on Link. But since he moved against them, he needs to be taught a lesson. It kind of reminds me of the ending of Se7en.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.

The only cell phone is in Lechero’s hands. Link shows Mike a Polaroid photo of Sara. She gives a clue to her location.

Whistler tells Michael that he’s in prison because he was running a charter boat. One day, he got a call demanding to know exactly where he took a naturalist of some sort who took water samples and measurements. He said he couldn’t remember but then government types started snooping around. And then a bar fight led to his incarceration in Sona. The people who are trying to get him out demand that as soon as they do, he show them where he took that guy. The book is his trip log and the only way he can retrace his steps.
