    This is a filler episode, with only one important scene.

    By Dante_Edy, Apr 18, 2010

    Details/Progress (To point A to B) -» (5/10). Don’t expect progress. Michael, Lincoln are in the same place, running. The only thing here is that Sara received a message. Haywire is pure filler. Sucre scenes is filler too, but at least, had one good scene.

    Plot Details/Holes- » (8/10). Good details on that tape recorded by Michael and Lincoln

    Drama - » (8/10). Even if Sucre scene was a filler, at least can make you feel something. Bellick situation is nice too.

    Suspense/Tension - » (3/10). Don’t expect this.

    Surprises/Shocks - » (5/10). At least a message was send.

    Time and Scene Management - » (5/10). Haywire is pure filler. Sucre situation too was a filler, like Michael, and other scenes. Only Bellick plot advanced a little, it´s very hard to not notice filler scenes.

    Beginning - » (9/10). Good presentation, with tension and a impossible situation that was quickly solved.

    Complication Phase - » (7/10). There wasn´t any type of worth complication here, just fillers, was all about making time.

    Climax - » (5/10). Didn´t notice, but was Sara phone call to Michael

    Ending - » (6/10). Michael, Lincoln and Sara are in big trouble, again.

    What I liked -» The last scene in Sucre filler.

    What I Didn´t Liked -» All the rest, pure filler, with only one important scene.

    This is a filler episode, with only one important scene.moreless

    Kellerman is up to something!

    By therockstop, Jul 10, 2008

    In this episode we find that Sucre has made his way to a mexican village where he receives help from a man who has just lost his wife. Meanwhile Michael and Lincoln make a tape with a coded message in it for Sara. Sara contacts Michael by phone while Kellerman is contacted by the president. As it stands now I have no idea what Kellerman's motives are and who side he is on. If Sara sees him with Michael I would think that things are going to get ugly. Mahone is close behind the trail with the help of Bellick. I wonder if Bellick gets out of gen pop for helping him? This was another good episode that kind of leaves us hanging a bit. Kellerman is the key to things right now and I want to know what he is up to. I wonder when this show first started if the writers ever thought Kellerman would be around this long. I thought he would be dead by the end of season one, but he a grown into quite a role for this show.moreless

    Sarah is the Key

    By vman85, Jun 24, 2008

    Police have surrounded the motel room, and there's only one way out. Kellerman resorts to his wily ways and leads Michael and Lincoln out into the open, announcing himself as FBI and claiming to have the brothers in custody. They manage to escape the fracas – but not before finding another kidnap victim. This time it's a cameraman, and with his help, it's not long before a tape containing allegations against Steadman, Reynolds and Mahone hits the airwaves, leaving Kim no choice but to plan some serious damage control. As Mahone analyses the tape of Michael and Lincoln, he realises that Kellerman's given them some cunning advice: their body language is all over the place, and it's throwing everyone but him off track. He knows that this is more than an exposé; it's a message for Sara. And as he discovers, a badly beaten Bellick – who's only too willing to bargain his inside information for a transfer to Ad Seg – provides the key to deciphering the video's hidden code. While Sucre befriends a widower along the road to Ixtapa, and Haywire's sympathies with an abused youth lead him to trouble, Michael, Lincoln and Kellerman are outside St Thomas Hospital waiting for Sara to show. Just as Lincoln's losing hope, a voice comes over the loudspeaker announcing a phone call for Michael Crane. Knowing that it can only be Sara, Michael steps inside to speak to her, leaving Lincoln to contemplate Kellerman's shady behaviour as he too takes a call. It's the President, and she wants to strike a deal: she wants the brothers. What will Kellerman decide?moreless

    In order to broadcast a message to Sara on television, Michael, Lincoln and Kellerman kidnap a cameraman. Bellick is sent to the infirmary. Haywire buys beer for two teenagers, while Sucre steals a car in Mexico. What an episoe, I mean I loved every minute of it. I loved it when Sara gave a message to Michael, I miss those to together! I feel sorry for Haywire in this episode I love him so much and the dog. When I see him on here I just feel sorry for him. He is awesome though and so, so funny! He helps a girl who´s father has been hurting her. This episode was so nerve wrecking, with lots of action. I can't wait to see more episode like this because this was so awesome!moreless

    They have their change to tell their story...

    By Parricida, Dec 09, 2007

    Michal and Lincoln have change to stay tell their story on the cameras as they use one of the camera men as hostage to their way out after Steadman's suicide. They try to make it look and fill it with many secret signals so they would be running after many things but Mahone is more smarter than this. The only real message was that they need to meet Sara as their father believed she has something and she does - they only have to get her. But Mahone knows the people who to use and how to use - he understands the message and tries to catch them.

    But he is not the only one making the moves. Lincoln is getting suspicious about Kellerman and he may have the reason as president is calling him now and he may reconsider his side. One traitor, why not second time...moreless

    Michaels Faith Restored For The Moment, Mahone Still Has "It".

    By cavanagh15, Sep 09, 2007

    I always knew that the government conspiracy would return in this season and the last few episodes have really heated up the middle part of this season.

    Michael / Lincoln / Kellerman - At the beginning of the season Kellerman had a crappy role in the show, but he is back in true form now working with our guys...or maybe not? The once flipped man now may be considering a double flip now that we know him and the president once had a thing. (Kellerman had a thing anyway) Loved the message and every piece of analysis that went into the scenes that followed. Mahone in true form is one of the best things to watch this season. I love how he can figure out everything as quickly as the rest of them can plan it. Loved the connection with where to meet Sara, these parts of the episodes were amazing.

    Nothing from T-Bag and C-Note kind of shocked me. Really dont care too much about the latter, but seeing T-Bag again would have been cool. Instead we got Haywire, who is still trying to build that awesome raft to get to Holland. Loved his scene in this episode where he attacks the girls father.

    Brad - Not much new here, just him trying to find a way out and he helped Mahone figure out Saras location. Season 2 is heating up like never before. Cant wait for the next episode.moreless

    Interesting turns in this one

    By diecaro, Jul 13, 2007

    So, now Bellick is back in Fox River - serving time as an inmate himself. And then he's being thrown in one cell with that Avocado guy, right? That was great! It's interesting to see how he copes with the situation and how he's breaking down in the infirmary. And wasn't it just hilarious when he asked the nurse to leave the door open? :D

    Michael and Lincoln working with Kellerman brings an interesting perspective to their game. The agent knows how his kind works, but still all the plotting doesn't help, because Mahone is just too fast. I hate it that he's so smart. Michael's the one supposed to be ahead of them all, not Mahone :( Anyway, Sara proved that she's kinda clever herself and I'm always so happy to see another phone call between those two. I just hope they'll see each other again real soon! It'd be better than having her run around solely. And I can't wait to see how she'll react to Kellerman's appearance!moreless

    Once again, Prison Break proves to be exciting, even at its most predictable moments.


    By sandybadlands, Jun 15, 2007

    This episode is a great example of the writers' attention to detail in the plot and dialogue. The look on the cameraman's face when he sees the blanket is priceless, whether or not you believe the cons could actually kill him. Once the tape is aired, its meaning seems clear, but we know Schofield better than that--there must be a hidden message. Still, watching the feds analyze the tape for clues is equally rewarding even after Kellerman's assistance is revealed. (But how does Agent Mahone always figure it out so fast?) And when Sara Tancredi deciphers the message and gets through to "Michael Crane," she shows that she can play Michael's game, finally earning herself a spot in the A story once again.

    Whether or not you saw it coming, the plot continues to shine!moreless
