  • good, but unrealistic.

  • The main plot is predictable, so the ending don´t have the expected effect, but this episode managed to be good, with some setups for the second half of the season.

    • Michael: If we go back to prison we'll have a few extra days. We'll have a chance to contact Sara. Lincoln: We don't know where Sara is. Sara may be dead, Michael.

    • Reporter: I am here with Ed Pavelka, the new warden of Fox River penitentiary where Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield are scheduled to be returned to sometime tomorrow. Now warden, the escape happened a mere two days before Burrows was scheduled to be put to death. He's already been granted one day. Do you anticipate any further delays? Warden Pavelka: Lincoln Burrows is a convicted murderer. His escape has endangered the lives of civilians across this country. He is not a celebrity, he is not a martyr. I can assure you that whatever leniency was afforded him and the other prisoners under the old regime at Fox River, will no longer be tolerated. The only thing that Mr. Burrows can expect is what a jury of his peers demanded: a speedy execution. Reporter: And Michael Scofield? Warden Pavelka: With his escape, the aiding and abetting charges, the felonies he's racked up along the way, on top of his original sentence, I'd say Mr. Scofield will be spending the rest of his life behind bars. Thank you.

    • Mahone: These are my prisoners and I will be personally escorting them in their transfer vehicle. Border Patrol Agent: You can follow in the chase car... Mahone: I don't believe you heard me. I'll be accompanying them in their... Border Patrol Agent: The only people allowed in the van are the driver and two guards who've been trained and certified in prisoner transport. Mahone: Are you really going to make me go over your head? Border Patrol Agent: I'll even dial the phone for you.

    • Kim: I saw you on the news, Alex, the brothers too. They're a little more, um, breathing than I had hoped.

    • Kellerman: When those brothers get in the van, it'll be the last thing they ever do.

    • When Mahone said to Kellerman that Michael and Lincoln are heading to the surface he takes his gun and enters the underground tunnel, but one moment later we see him re-entering the tunnel.

    • Bellick is 40 years old.

    • This episode marks the first time the series' protagonist, Michael Scofield, and its primary villain, Paul Kellerman, have appeared in a scene together, aside from a brief glimpse in a car in "English, Fitz or Percy".

    • Goof: The shot of Bellick in his cell which zooms out and shows the other inmates in the cells around his is the exact same shot used in the Pilot episode. The only difference is Bellick's cell has been put over Michael's cell. If you look closely, the other inmates are the same ones in the same position as the scene used in the Pilot.
