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.

Linc arrives in Miami. Sucre split. He’s with TBag, Gretchen and Self. They are close to finding the buyer.
Mike wakes up in a house. The doors are locked and Company men are outside. He goes through the cupboards. The men come to see him. He is at a house in the woods, 60 miles from anywhere. Dr Roger Knowlton is a psychiatrist and has been assigned to talk with him. He’s here to provide facts. He is told that his mother still works for the Company and is still alive.
Linc goes to the club to which the buyer made some calls. He finds out that he dates a girl who works there.
Mike is told that she left the boys because they were in danger because of the solar synthesis technology. Mike doesn’t believe Knowlton. The actual conversation with Knowlton is about joining the Company, nothing else. Knowlton says that he will only see her if he joins.
The blonde waitress leads Linc to even more questions. The buyer used this as a trap. Tia is the one dating the rep for the waitress. Her wallet is missing. Linc has it.
Sara comes to see the General. She wants to help Mike, but he refuses. Krantz says that Mike will be back in 3 to 7 days. He infers that Mike might join the Company. He sends her away. She comes to her hotel room and paces until she gets a meeting point from someone.
Self and TBag go through Tia’s apartment. Self wants to be in charge. He makes TBag join his side. Gretchen thinks that the whole thing was an inside job. The rep had a reader that allowed him to read the data on Scylla. Gretchen comes onto Linc. Self tells Linc that he is going to be in charge. When Self is about to get his ass kicked, Mahone arrives. Linc tells Self that the moment that he stops doing what he is supposed to do, he’ll shoot him through the head.
Mike is shown a photo album that apparently belonged to his mom. He doesn’t believe Knowlton. The General wants to use drugs on Scofield. The General wants Scofield nicely brainwashed and receptive to Company policy.
They figure out that the boyfriend is trying to get Scylla out of the country via boat. They find out where the boat is. It’s a charter boat to Nassau. A guy starts running away from the search. It’s a dead end. He had 3 joints. Gretchen has found the rep, but she doesn’t tell the rest of the team. She goes missing when the rest of the team finds out that the rep arrived at the marina.
Gretchen meets Wilcott, the rep. She offers to get the dogs off his bag and make the company believe that Scylla is elsewhere. She’ll get $10 million.
Sara is waiting for her meeting. Sara gets kidnapped. Lisa is responsible. She gives him Mike’s location. Sara phones to tell Linc. TBag tells the General. He tells Knowlton to use the drugs now. Knowlton is about to get the drugs injected. He rigged an explosive. It’s a diversion. He makes the guard inject the good doctor and has him cuff himself to the bed. Two more men arrive and free him. They get on a small 4×4. That’s stupid. Mike could have gotten on one while they were in the house. Just when he is about to get caught, Sara arrives and drives over their little dune buggy.
Gretchen makes everyone believe that she knows where Wilcott is. When the rep arrives, she pulls a gun on his goons and kills them. Scylla is already gone. The rep pulls a gun and starts shooting at Susan. She shoots him back and he’s dead.
Self wants Linc to kill Gretchen. TBag is defending Susan. They leave her there, bleeding. Someone calls the rep’s phone. It’s a woman, most probably Mike’s mom. She’s got Scylla. She recognized him, but he didn’t recognize her because she didn’t say a word.
