  • Poor details and the slow motion doesn´t help this episode.

    6.6
    Details/Progress (To point A to B) -» (7/10). Things are moving more slow this time, it is all about making setups for all the characters. Sara continues to be tortured, T-bag recovers is money, Michael making arrangements, company assassin´s dead, Lincoln and his father find Michael, Mahone is free.



    Plot Details/Holes- » (4/10). Poor details, how T-bag managed to escape from the cops in that distance and how he cut his own hand to do it are a mystery. How the company assassin´s wasn´t close to Lincoln and his family is another miracle form the writers. But this not end here, also T-bag managed to kill Gary with only one hand and all beaten up, how Gary was scared it is another mystery that the writers will never explain.



    Drama - » (8/10). Michael Guilt was very well explored. Lincoln and his father interaction was nothing special.



    Suspense/Tension - » (6/10). Don´t expect great or even good tension here.



    Surprises/Shocks - » (5/10). Sucre appearance wasn´t enough.



    Time and Scene Management - » (7/10). The writers explored every situation at its limits, so there are some scenes that bought time.



    Beginning - » (7/10). This rate actually is too good, since only Michael conscience was something interesting to see, T-bag miraculous escape and the assassin´s that was close tol Lincoln, his son and father was another miracle.



    Complication Phase - » (7/10). Michael arrangements was dangerous and Sara couldn´t Escape, so how she could escape?



    Climax - » (7/10). When Michael was threatened with a gun by some guys. How the situation develops was poorly done.



    Ending - » (6/10). Michael strange reaction to his father and Sara being supposed killed wasn´t a good ending for me, old material.



    What I liked -» Michael Guilt.



    What I Didn´t Liked -» The poor details about T-bag impossible escape and how he killed a man that he supposed more stronger than him. The poor assassin´s details.



    Poor details and the slow motion doesn´t help this episode.moreless
  • Well written.

    Michael has to outsmart a coyote to secure a getaway plane while Lincoln leaves LJ again. T-Bag escapes and finds Geary. Kellerman tortures Sara as Mahone figures out the location of Bolshoi Booze. Another awesome episode from Prison Break. Everything is just all coming together and I love it. I lvoed it when Linc and Michael met up with their dad, it was so sad when Mahone killed him, I'm sure they will get revange somehow. The scene with Sara and Kellerman, awesome! Loved it. Lots of action, the plot is all coming together now! All in all a brilliant episode with lots of action in it. Bring on the next episode!moreless
  • Intense and Nerve-Wracking

    9.4
    Just as Aldo's telling his son about some vital evidence, to which Sara may literally hold the key, Lincoln picks up on a familiar sound coming from nearby – a shell casing drops to the ground as Agent Kim's inside man, Leon, dispenses with a second of Aldo's guards. Always a step ahead of the game, Lincoln grapples with the imposter, who is then shot dead by Jane. Having proved herself an ally, Jane agrees to take care of LJ while Aldo and Lincoln go off in search of Michael. As a recently released Mahone is soon to discover, Bolshoi Booze is more than a name; it's a set of GPS coordinates linking to a shack in the New Mexico desert, where Michael's latest rendezvous is turning out to be even more eventful than the last. This time he has caught up with some people smugglers, and they're far from impressed with the supply of fake nitroglycerin he's brought them in exchange for a plane to Panama. With Michael held at gunpoint, things look bleak – until old pal Sucre steps in to save the day. As the two amigos take off with the plane location, Aldo and Lincoln are there to greet them. It's a big moment for Michael, who, on seeing his father, realises that this isn't the first time they've met after all. Meanwhile, Geary revels in his newfound wealth, only to have a now one-handed T-Bag enact his murderous revenge; Bellick faces some tough questions; and back in Gila, the ruthless Kellerman is holding Sara prisoner in a motel room. There's something he thinks Governor Tancredi's given her, and he wants it. But no amount of torture will make Sara talk, leaving Kellerman battling with his conscience over the next of Agent Kim's orders: he's to put Sara in the ground. After one final warning, he forces her head into a bath full of water, leaving the good doctor frantically fighting for breath… and her life.moreless

  • TRIVIA (6)

  • QUOTES (25)

    • Coyote: But you know, I have a question. I thought that these came in glass vials not plastic.
      Michael: I thought so too, but the guy I bought it from, he said that they packed it in plastic for transportation over long distances to prevent a fire or an explosion.
      Coyote: Really? I never heard of that. Vete a la camioneta y traiga el equipo. (go to the van and bring the equipment, Coyote says to his cousin Carlos)
      Michael: What's going on?
      Coyote: We're doing a little quality control test.
      Michael: It's the best available.
      Coyote: We got time.

    • Coyote: You know, constantly running from the law with a bad heart. Mexico, where I'm from, has a lot of great things, but ah health care is not one of them. (he looks at Michael) You all right? You look a little nervous.
      Michael: I don't do this every day, so I just want the information on that plane and ah move on.
      Coyote: Is that it?
      Michael: That's it.
      Coyote: Because I know who you are. Oh, you don't have to worry. We can't go within a hundred feet of a federal marshal to collect the reward because we got USA and Mexican warrants on our head. But this plan to Panama. Sit down. This is all for your brother? (Michael sits down)
      Michael: Yes.
      Coyote: I've got four brothers. Two in prison. Accept the call? yes. Break them out. Estás loco. (You're crazy)
      Michael: My brother gave me a baseball mitt for my 14th birthday. I owed him.
      Coyote: You're a better man than I am.
      Michael: Time will tell.

    • Sucre: Where's the plane gonna land?
      Coyote: Kiss my ass, cobarde!

    • Sara: I don't know anything about any of this!
      Kellerman: Really? Then why did you give your father the file on Lincoln Burrows? Why did you open the door for Scofield and help him escape? Why did Scofield send you those coded notes? Why did you come to New Mexico to meet him? Don't try to float a babe in the woods routine by me, it's really gonna piss me off. So… come on. (Sara doesn't say anything. Kellerman grabs Sara's head, forces her into the tub of water, and holds her down)

    • Mahone (answering phone): Yeah?
      Pam: It's Pam. What's going on?
      Mahone: I just wanted to say hey.
      Pam: Well…are you all right? You said it was important.
      Mahone: I know things got kinda ugly towards the…you know, the end… um...I got ugly. But I want you to know that, that there were circumstances that, uh…it was better that you and Cameron, that you were not with me.
      Pam: Why are you telling me this now?
      Mahone: If I had to do it all over again, I'd do it different, you know. We'd still be a family. I'd give anything for that. I just wanted you to know.
      Pam: Alex…what's going on?
      Mahone: Nothin', I - I just wanted to call to say that I was…that I'm sorry, about everything.
      Pam: Where are you right now? I can come get you.
      Mahone: Wouldn't that be nice, huh?
      Pam: No, I'm serious. Where are you?
      Mahone: One more thing. If you hear anything in the media…
      Pam: What, what are you talking about?
      Mahone: I love you. Give Cam a kiss for me, okay? (he hangs up the phone and is very distraught.)

    • Kellerman (to Sara): There is one thing about me that should mean a great deal to you right now: I am reasonable. If you tell me what you know, you get to go.

    • Coyote: When is your brother getting here?
      Michael: You were planning on turning us in the whole time, weren't you?
      Coyote: When is he supposed to meet you here?
      Sucre: Sueltalo! (Let him go)
      Coyote: Drop it, I'm gonna shoot him.
      Sucre: Don't let him go and I'll shoot you.
      Coyote: Suelta la pistola (Drop the gun)
      Sucre: Hey, no estoy jugando! (Hey, I'm not playing)
      Coyote:: Sueltala cobarde! (Drop it you coward!)
      Sucre shoots him in his left arm twice

    • T-Bag: It's amazing what you can pick up at an army-navy store.
      Roy: All that torture stuff…that was Bellick's idea. And if you ask me, he took the whole thing way too far. Listen, why don't I give you half of the money and call it a day. All right! 60-40. Come on T. We can deal.
      (T-Bag glares at Roy)

    • Lincoln: I'll see you soon, I promise.
      L.J.: Isn't that the same thing your dad told you?
      Lincoln: Yeah, but I mean it.

    • Kellerman (after binding Sara): As you can see, hi my name is not Lance, and I am not an addict.

    • Store Clerk: Must do quite a bit of fishing.
      Michael: Yeah, a lot of fishing. And a whole lot of catching.

    • Aldo: It's about corporate interest taking over the government. Buying elections, fighting wars, people dying so they can turn a profit. We're trying to stop it.
      Lincoln: What are you, a bunch of spies?
      Aldo: Just a handful of senators, congressmen, people like me that once worked for The Company. People willing to expose the president for what she is – a shill, working for these corporations. We bring her down, we bring them down.
      Lincoln: What's it got to do with me?
      Aldo: Because the way we're gonna bring her down is also what we're gonna use to set you free.

    • Sara: I don't know where Michael is.
      Kellerman: This is not about Michael; this is about your father. He left Washington with something that didn't belong to him, and we need it back.
      Sara: And you killed him for it?
      Kellerman: I didn't, no. For what that's worth. But I hope that his death properly illustrates the magnitude of the situation that we're in right now. So, where is it?
      Sara: I don't know what you're talking about.
      Kellerman: Where is it?
      Sara: I don't know what you're talking about.
      Kellerman: Where is it?
      Sara: I don't know what you're talking about.
      Kellerman: Sara, there's a next step involved in this. And you don't want to experience that.

    • (dead agent's cell phone rings, Lincoln picks it up)
      Aldo: Lincoln, don't! (he answers the phone)
      Kim: Is it done?
      Lincoln: You are.
      Kim: Lincoln Burrows.
      Lincoln: Your man's dead. Just like anyone else you send to take out my son.
      Kim: We want you. This isn't about L.J. There's a very simple way for all of this to end.
      Lincoln: I'll tell you how it's gonna end – me staring your dead eye with my hand around your throat.
      Kim: You don't even know who I am. (hangs up phone)

    • Kellerman: Now, after your father accessed this information he made three calls from his cell phone. All to you. What did he tell you?
      Sara: Just that he was coming back to Chicago.
      Kellerman: Good. You're being honest. Good. Now, there's a half an hour between when your father landed and when he got home that is unaccounted for. I know you stopped by his office, did you see him there?
      Sara: No. The last time I saw my father he was dead in his study.
      Kellerman: Did your father have anyone give you anything?
      Sara: Do you think that I'm just withholding information because I like hanging out with you? If I knew something, I would tell you. I don't, I don't know anything about any of this.

    • Mahone: Can you open the gate? And I need a new vehicle.
      Kim: There's something you should know about me. I don't like being out in the field. I only do so when there's been a screw up. I'm out in the field, Alex.
      Mahone: Then why don't you open the gate and you can hurry back to D.C. before your shoes get dirty?
      Kim: We have a lead as to where Burrows will be meeting up with his brother. It's a place he referred to as Bolshoi Booze. That mean anything to you?
      Mahone: Yeah it's one of a hundred tattoos on Scofield's body.
      Kim: What does it mean?
      Mahone: I don't know yet.
      Kim: You'll need to figure it out within the next couple of hours. If Scofield and Borrows cross the border they'll be out of your jurisdiction. And you'll be of no further value to us.
      Mahone: Open the gate.
      Kim: So you can do what? I wanna hear it, straight from the mouth of the guy who was supposed to be our closer.
      Mahone: I'll get Scofield. And Burrows. And all the rest of them. And then me, and you, and Kellerman, we're gonna part ways.
      Kim: I just hope you're properly motivated. (he opens the gate) 'Cause as long as you do your job, we forget about Shales.

    • Kellerman: Drowning is horrific, don't get me wrong. But once you give in, you let the water come into your lungs, there's a certain euphoria, I hear. I guess as a junkie, I thought maybe you'd appreciate that. (pause) You did this to yourself.(forces Sara underwater)

    • Michael: I'm glad I told you about this place.
      Sucre: I'm glad I figured out how to work a GPS. Could you make it a little more difficult next time?
      Michael: I owe you one.
      Sucre: No, we're even.

    • Sara (to Kellerman): Are you that surprised that there are people in the world that stand up to people like you? Are you that far gone?

    • Kellerman: This is happening right now, okay? Don't make me do this. Don't make me do this.
      Sara: Even if I knew, I wouldn't tell you.
      Kellerman: You wouldn't? Really? Are you that stupid? (shouts) Are you that stupid? Because now you're going to die!! You're going to die. And all you had to do was tell me what your father gave you.
      Sara: I know my options. I can not tell you and die, or I can tell you and still die.
      Kellerman: No, wrong, Sara. C'mon! Smarten up! For once in your life. Please.
      Sara (looks him in the eye): Go to hell.

    • Michael: Bless me father, for I have sinned.
      Priest: How long has it been since your last confession?
      Michael: This is my first time, in a long time.
      Priest: And what is the nature of your sins?
      Michael: The nature? I'm not really sure.
      Priest: Deep down inside your heart you know.
      Michael: Righteousness, maybe? Believing the ends justify the means?
      Priest: And what are those ends?
      Michael: Saving someone's life.
      Priest: And the means?
      Michael: I've broken just about every law you can name. But it's not just what I've done. It's what others have done. Because I let them. Because I was doing what I thought was right. I should have known better this time.
      Priest: This time?
      Michael: When I as a kid, I watched a man bleed out and die. I was glad, because he deserved it.
      Priest: Life is only for God to give and take, my son.
      Michael: Suddenly, there was a dark space inside of me. And I knew it was wrong, but here I am.
      Priest: There is a way to stop this: surrender your will to God.
      Michael: If I surrender now, I'll lose everything I love.
      Priest: But do you lose your soul in the process?
      Michael: We all have our crosses to bear.

    • Kellerman: I care about you. This is not what I wanted, Sara.
      (cell phone rings, Kellerman answers it) Kellerman.
      Kim: What's going on with Sara? Has she told you anything?
      Kellerman: (whispers to Sara) Don't go anywhere. (to Kim on the phone) Not yet.
      Kim: I trust you've been…persuasive.
      Kellerman: Yes, absolutely.
      Kim: Then kill her.
      Kellerman: Well, if she knows something…
      Kim: You disobey me, you are done. Do you understand me? Put her in the ground, Paul.

    • Lincoln: The last 30 years I've hated you. You walked out on me. You haven't even seen Michael.
      Aldo: I've seen him before.
      Lincoln: Not in the papers, Dad. Been trying to work out what kind of man abandons his family. Now I'm doing the same damn thing.
      Aldo: You'll see him again. I'll make sure of it.
      Lincoln: How much further?
      Aldo: About three hours.

    • (Bellick makes a cell phone call)
      Voicemail: This is Roy Geary, leave a message
      Bellick: You thieving son of a bitch. You better get down on your knees and pray to God that I don't find you because if I do, mark my words I'm going to gut you bow to stern.

    • Bellick: For the last time some black male, early 20's, jumped me from behind. I didn't get a good look at his face.
      Investigator: The assailant attacked you from behind?
      Bellick: That's what I just said.
      Investigator: Yet he managed to make contact square on your forehead
      Bellick: That's right.
      Investigator: With what a boomerang? Come on why don't you tell me what happened?
      Bellick: Look, I'm a retired correctional officer out of Illinois. How about showing some professional courtesy, honey?
