    It was a good return after the 4 month break. I think Kathleen Quinlan is an awesome addition to the cast and a very good villain. She just has a very cold vibe about her.

    As for the ratings for this episode. I just looked it up and they were God awful. Only 3.38M people in the United States watched this Live. I'm just flabbergasted. Where the hell did the other 3M who watched this in the fall go?

    Friday is death trap for shows. Not much advertising was done (apart from 1-2 promos), think a good portion of the audience didn`t even know PB was on. It`s pretty much same than Dollhouse and Terminator have been doing. Pretty sad.

    I loved this Episode, I might be the only one but the thing that made this episode so good was the fact that christine was trying to kill them nice twist beacause I really beleved her when she told Linc that. I loved all the characters this episode even Self! I guess I just so glad to see PB again anyway can't wait till next week, whats gonna happen to Linc?

    i totally agree it was worth the wait..this episode was really good. Christina was the most shocking, trying to kill the general and making the attempt on Linc. everything was going good until i saw the preview for next week.. they ruined the 'clifhanger' with Linc being sized up for the kill. but still a great comeback!

    There wasn't enough promotion about PB. It was barely mentioned and I actually only caught the show by accident. At first I thought it was a re-run - and then...?! I immediately got out the popcorn. Excellent episode but I hope that Michael gets back to Linc and the gang soon. I like them all together, plus, dear Linc is a bit lost without Michael's brilliant mind. And is it just me or do some of the characters look a little different? Linc looks buffer, Self looks a bit puffier, T-Bag's hair is darker, Michael looks trimmer. And I agree with the previous poster who said that the excellent cliffhanger will come to naught. Linc is in the eye of the target but somebody will distract Linc and the assassin will have to back off - or something like that.

    This episode sucked. Jesus Christ all this show is now is gun fight after gun fight. Every turn was predictable. Every beat was just eating up time.

    Seriously, the writers need to stop with the gun fights

    For the first time I was actually a little bored watching the show. I don't like the storyline with the mother at all. I hope the next one is better.

    I love Prison Break, but I have to admit, this episode bored me. The whole part with Michael and Sara hitchhiking was slow and almost pointless. I'm glad to see that Mahone is still helping Lincoln out; and I wasn't surprised at all that The General survived the limo exploding. This show, sadly, has gotten predicatable again. I hope the next episode is better.

    this was an ok episode. i was a bit dissapointed, it was too predictable.

    but i have complete faith in the writers, and i know that we are in for a complete roler coaster ride come the end of the season.

    I know the next epidode will be much better.

    I think this episode was average. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. I agree with many of the previous posts. This episode was predictable, and it dragged on. I figured the General wasn't dead after the limo explosion, and I knew the guy following Michael/Sara was Company. I think the reason I'm being as nice as I am about this episode is because I was just so happy that PB was returning. Hopefully next week's and future episodes will be more exciting and surprising.

    It was a good episode, especially considering it is setting up whatever finale they've come up with. It might take a couple episodes to set everything up but I am excited for the last 3 or 4 episodes. They should be hard hitting and exciting!

    Great episode. Looks like things are going to be complicated and tense with the General, Christine, and Michael all going after Scylla. JKust hope the series gets a proper ending.

    I can only agree with missy66611! I got a little bored while watching the episode. Hope next week's can turn things around.

    It was good. The Michael/ Sara plot wasn't up to much, but Linc actually stole the limelight for once and his storyline kept me on my toes. Overall though, it felt more like an episode used to setup the rest of the season. Still pretty neat though
    8.5/10
