Prison Break is back after its short break. The last few episodes were quite dramatic. Dr. Sara Tancredi, daughter of a governor, was killed by the company as retaliation for Linc’s failed rescue attempt. Linc has still not told his brother Mike about Sara.
Mike’s plan is slowly maturing, but he is still missing key elements to make the escape. It’s a lot of pressure and the players don’t trust each other at all. A new face appears in the prison and knows things about Whistler.
We have yet to see Pad Man. The escape will happen during the next episode, since I’ve noticed that each episode focuses on a day. Things just keep going wrong for Scofield.
T-Bag thinks that since he owns Mahone he can get himself entrenched into the escape. On top of that, he helped Scofield get access to Lechero’s cell phone in the past.
I liked this episode. It was gripping, like all the other episodes. I just wonder what will happen when they finally do make their escape out of prison. What will Scofield’s reaction be when he finds out that Sara is dead?
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
