Prison Break is an American serial drama television series that premiered on the Fox Broadcasting Company on August 29, 2005. The story revolves around a man named Lincoln Burrows who was sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit and his brother Michael Scofield’s elaborate plan to help him escape his death sentence.
Created by Paul Scheuring, the show is produced by Adelstein-Parouse Productions in association with Original Television and 20th Century Fox Television. The current executive producers are Paul Scheuring, Matt Olmstead, Kevin Hooks, Marty ,Brett Ratner.
The show is currently in its third season. The uniqueness of Prison Break is attributed to its serialized story structure, a similar format used by Lost and 24, and to its setting, as very few television series were primarily set and filmed in a prison. Its success and recognition as a prison drama revived interest in the genre following the success of Oz.
I’m a bit late, but the fourth season of Prison Break just started. Three shows have already been aired. I wondered how I would find these episodes. This episode was also pretty good. Even if you think that they wouldn’t really find a way to continue the narrative, it continues to be riveting. The crew is faced with multiple problems on a lot of different fronts. Will they be able to find a way through them?
Warning: Spoilers ahead.

The crew is at the races. They are placing bets. Bellick makes a row. It’s enough to distract some of the guards .Linc walks in. Security is called in. They are placing some kind of transmitter on #8, Sparkle Kid. Miek and Mahone go into security and place a listening device. It’s to get cardholder #4. It was to get the gate stuck. This sends the cardholder to see the manager. His name is Mr. Addison. The device starts copying. They found the transmitter. They get the data. Mahone goes to get the device and is arrested by the cops.
In Riverside Califronia, Susan/Gretchen turns up at her sister’s place. She sent her an owl from Germany. She needs to see it. Inside it is a gun, money and supplies. Her real name is Gretchen.
TBag is looking for something at this office. He figures out the 8×10 clue. It refers to his storage room. He’s made by his supervisor and leaves when threatened.
Mahone is being processed. Self finds Bryan at his station. He’s from IT. Don is suspicious. He sends him away. Wyatt is briefing the General on Self. Bryan comes to tell the General that he was unsuccessful in penetrating Self’s account. Self goes to see the precinct. He wants to get his things. Self tells Linc that Mahone is stuck in jail for now. Once they run the prints, they will find out who he is. Linc says to move on. Mike agrees. Sucre isn’t thrilled to find this out.
The next target is Arthur Scadari, the next cardholder.
Wyatt pays Self a visit. Self isn’t intimidated. Wyatt doesn’t have any clearance or papers. Wyatt says that the general likes his privacy. Wyatt looks at his car and finds out that Self was at an LAPD precinct. Self says that he can take care of Mahone. He can kill him if he gets caught. The cops want Mahone to roll on his “partner”. They think that he was at the track to rob the place.
Wyatt arrives at the police station. He sees that Self was here to Frank Zwan, Mahone’s alias. Mahone hears Wyatt’s voice. He sees him in the back. He’ll try to kill him. Mahone phones Mike and says that Wyatt has found him. He makes Mike promise that they will get Wyatt for him. Mike does so.
It turns out that Emily is Gretchen’s daughter. She gave custody to her sister. She goes to claim Pfeiffer’s belongings and finds his phone.
The plan is to surcharge Scadari’s alarm system so that it switches off. They do this from the power station.
Sara is playing the part of a lawyer. Sucre is there as backup. They shut done the power to the courthouse to get Mahone out of there. Now that’s loyalty. That’s why Self was freaking out on the phone. Wyatt is left in the dark with Mahone long gone. I guess that wearing sunglasses in the dark didn’t help him.
Wyatt is unsuccessful in killing anyone. Sara even got his print sheet from his file. Mahone calls Wyatt. He promises Wyatt that they will meet again. Roland saw Mahone dump the number. He takes it.
TBag is cleaning up and gets ready to leave. He’s knocked out cold by Gretchen, who’s been waiting at his place.
