I was wondering if the guys stuck in Sona would finally make their escape. I guess I have my answer now. For now at least the guys are still stuck in Panama.
I didn’t like how Linc keeps screwing up all the time. This was the second time that he had some rag tag operation planned to get his son and it fails. He had Susan at gunpoint and didn’t shoot. He was in front of his son and wasn’t able to take him.
Linc is weak. At least he was portrayed as such in this episode. Things are also getting sticky at Sona. Lechero’s hold on power is slipping away. Naturally there is more to Whistler than we initially knew. Scofield knows this as well since he saw him talking to Susan at the prison.
I liked this episode. The parts with Linc are frustrating, but they keep you on the edge of your seats. I wonder how they will escape now. I was thinking that they would be out by now. This is a great show and I recommend it.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
