  • At least, things are moving forward at a good speed, you have some surprises in the way, great ending and a reunion that everyone wanted to see.

    Details/Progress (To point A to B) -» (8/10). Michael and Sara reunion, interrupted because Mahone. Sucre trying to talk with Maricruz again, but it is all for nothing. Lincoln was saved, but only in the near the end you have the confirmation who their allies really are. T-bag being tortured by Bellick but now he and Gary find the money and T-bag is in big trouble. Plot Details/Holes- » (8/10). Almost All details were fine this time.

    Drama - » (7/10). Michael and Sara reunion and Sucre and his usual search, nothing great here.

    Suspense/Tension - » (7/10). Mahone pursuit and at the beginning you may thing that the company get´s Lincoln.

    Surprises/Shocks - » (7/10). Who expected that Kellerman would get someone so fast?

    Time and Scene Management - » (7/10). Sucre scenes continue to be filler, T-bag case is almost the same, but since Bellick got what he wanted, their scenes was worth. Michael and Sara scenes was well managed, but Mahone there was only to buy time too. There was Lincoln scenes that bought time too.

    Beginning - » (10/10). The presentation was very good, with a resolution of Lincoln situation and a big problem to Sara and Michael.

    Complication Phase - » (7/10). Mahone pursuit was the most complicated problem that the writers created in this episode. Sucre is always the same and T-bag is in big trouble.

    Climax - » (9/10). Michael and Sara reunion seems to be the most waited moment in this episode.

    Ending - » (10/10). Things are more complicated than ever for everyone.

    What I liked -» Didn´t expected that Lincoln could be free at the beginning. Sara and Michael interaction was interesting. The ending.

    What I Didn´t Liked -» Michael and Mahone facing each other are becoming more usual than ever. It starts to be annoying for me. Sucre scenes.

    At least, things are moving forward at a good speed, you have some surprises in the way, great ending and a reunion that everyone wanted to see.moreless
  • Amazing.

    Michael and Sara rendezvous in New Mexico as Mahone tracks them. Lincoln and LJ are rescued from the police, while Sucre tries to reach Maricruz by phone in Nebraska. Bellick and Geary torture T-Bag. Much better! This episode was awesome! I loved every second of it. I loved it when Mahone chases Michael down. I loved it when Michael and Sarah were together again, I was nearly crying it was awesome! Michael is my favourite character still, he is the best of the best! I'm glad Geary died I didn't really like him, I thought he was a waste of time. Well, can't wait to see more episodes like this one, it was truely amazing! My favourite episode so far.moreless
  • Schofield versus Mahone Part 1

    Lincoln and LJ are devastated to be reacquainted with the inside of a FBI car, but the day's set to take a strange turn. A van appears from nowhere, driving them off the road where they're promptly kidnapped by a mysterious blonde. They try to break free but the blonde swears she's with Link's father. She used to work for "the company," too. Link isn't at all convinced until he's face to face with old Albo, who claims he's arranged a safe place for the brothers. "You don't need to run any more," he coos, but all is not what is seems. Meanwhile, Bellick tires of torturing T-Bag; ties him up, calls the police and heads off to collect his millions. Sara's twiddling her thumbs at the Sundown Hotel when a fax arrives, leading her on a treasure hunt for Michael. It's a fraught reunion; Sara's astounded to discover that Michael's special "plan" is for her to skip into the sunset with two wanted men who are indirectly responsible for her dad's death, but she can't ignore the twanging on her heart-strings. The gooey reunion will have to wait though – Mahone's here. After a deadly cat-and-mouse scramble, Michael manages to back him into a cage, crank open a propane tap and gloat. If Mahone pulls the trigger, they'll both die, so Michael slips back to his girl victoriously. They find refuge in a motel. But this time Sara knows better. She scarpers.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (15)

    • Goof: During the police car chase at the start, when Lincoin and his son are in the back of the police car, each behind a front seat. However, when the camera zooms out it shows only one person in the back seat, and he is in the middle.

    • Goof: When Michael and Sara are escaping from the Rendezvous point, Michael tells her to hold on. Sara is doing that in close up shots, but the stunt double in the wide angle shots obviously doesn't. This is a continuity error during the whole scene.

    • Goof: Sara opens the mail box at the Rendezvous point to check for messages or hints from Michael but closes it again after finding out it's empty. In later shots, the mail box is wide open again.

    • Hector looks at Maricruz's flight info:

      ???WA 0081

      From: LA GUARDIA (LGA)
      Departure Terminal: TERMINAL A4
      Departure Terminal: TERMINAL D1
      To: IXTAPA (ZIH)
      Arrival Terminal: TERMINAL A
      Class: FIRST
      Status: CONFIRMED
      Meal: DINNER
      Aircraft: BOEING 767 JET
      Time: 12 HOURS AND 30 MINUTES

    • When the car with Aldo's people is about to crash the police car the first time, you can see that it stops a little, so there won't be an actual crash.

    • Bellick picks up the bag containing the money with one hand and lightly tosses it. If the bag contained $5 million in one hundred dollar bills (as established last season when Westmoreland showed Michael the $100 bill) then the bag should have weighed about 110 lbs (5,000,000/100/454= 110.1). Bills weigh about a gram and there are 454 grams in a pound.

    • Sara Tancredi apparently knows how to hotwire cars.

    • Why did Bellick pull T-Bag off the chair to torture him with the heated poker? He was dragging him into the kitchen to torture him when he could have just left him in the chair. This was a contrived way to allow T-Bag to fight back and have the key go skidding across the floor.

    • When Michael and Sara are fleeing from Mahone in the car chase, they drive across loose gravel and grass. While skidding across these surfaces, the cars somehow make tire-squealing noises as if they were on pavement.

    • Goof: Sara was registered at the Sundown Hotel as "Kelly Foster"... How did Michael know the fake ID of Sara to send her the fax?

    • Lincoln and Michael's father's first name is Aldo.

    • This episode takes place a week since the escape from Fox River.

    • The guy at the hotel tells Mahone that Sara had a fax sent to her 20 mins ago. The fax, from Michael, says to meet him in an hour. Mahone is then told that the address on the fax is only 5 mins away. If that was the case Sara wouldn't have left yet, and even if she had Mahone would have still got there before Michael.

    • When Sara is driving around the railroad to rendezvous with Michael, the car she is driving has the sun visor swung down, but the next shot in the car, the sun visor was at its original position.

    • The song playing as T-bag is being tortured is Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves

  • QUOTES (21)

    • Sucre: Theresa, this message is for Maricruz. I was right there waiting for your call. But the cops showed up and I couldn't pick up the phone. I know probably that's the exact reason why you may not wanna be with me. Listen to me. My Aunt Idalyz, she lives outside Mexico City. In the mountains, on a farm, with a llama for the baby to ride. So, next week when you fly back home, when you go to the airport, I'll be there. In the airport, in Ixtapa, waiting for you. I promise you, mi vida. I love you, mami, I love you more than anything. And I can't live without you. I just know I can make it work, baby.

    • Lincoln: Your grandfather…he was the reason I was set up in the first place. He used to work for the people who want me dead. This is all just to get to him.

    • Bellick: Tell me where that money is, or I'm gonna read it on your headstone.

    • Geary (after knocking Bellick out and taking the money): Next time, you pick though the crap.

    • Michael: I've arranged for us to get to Panama. We're meeting up with my brother tomorrow.
      Sara: Wait, that's your plan? To run away to Panama with the two most wanted men in America? I - Michael, I came here because I thought you were gonna have real answers for me.
      Michael: This is an answer. And right now it's the only one we've got.
      Sara: Running away into the sunset with the man who lied to me? Really? I mean, did you know about the other guys? Did you know that I would be putting T-Bag back out onto the street?!
      Michael: I never meant for that to happen. I was doing what I needed to do. My brother was gonna die.
      Sara: Now my father's dead.
      (Michael appears shocked. He leans on his car for support, before turning to face Sara)
      Michael: I am sorry, about your father. I'm sorry for a lot of things. For what I did to you. I have many, many regrets. But that's the biggest.
      Sara: That doesn't help me right now.
      Michael: I'm sorry for that too. I didn't expect you to, ah…I didn't expect you to forgive me. But I don't want you to, ah…I don't want you to be alone in this.
      Sara: I don't wanna be alone.

    • (in the warehouse)
      Michael (after locking Mahone in, who's pointing a gun): I wouldn't do that if I were you, Alex. You smell that? It's propane. It's filling the room. And if you pull that trigger, we both die.
      Mahone: I'll do it. I'll do it!
      Michael: Maybe. But before you do, let me ask you a question, Alex. Do you think you're still one of the good guys? Fighting the good fight? Because I think we both know you've crossed over. You're on the wrong side, chasing the wrong guys. My brother is innocent. He never killed anyone.
      Mahone: Well thanks for opening my eyes.
      Michael: Okay Alex, shoot. We both know what'll happen.
      Mahone: Ah, the propane will kill me anyway, what difference does it make? May as well do it right now.
      Michael: That's a good point. (he breaks a window) There ya go. There. There! That will give you some time to think about what you're doing. But first a word of advice – stop. Because when you get close, I will win, every time.
      Mahone: You think?
      Michael: I'm not the one in the cage.
      Mahone (laughing): No you're not. There's one big difference between you and I, Michael. And you just proved it. You can't kill. And that's what it's gonna take to stop me. 'Cause I don't have the same reservations. I can't. So whether it's today in Gila or tomorrow in Albuquerque or two months from now, in Panama, I will get you. (after Michael walks away) I don't have a choice.

    • T-Bag: Geary, come on, we can make a deal man.
      Geary: No deals. You just crapped out your last bargaining chip, pal.

    • Lincoln: Where are we?
      Jane: It doesn't matter. You're safe here. You can take a seat.
      Lincoln: I ain't doin' anything until I see my dad.
      Jane: All I can tell you is he's on his way. His flight lands in an hour.
      Lincoln: Why should I trust you, lady?
      Jane: I don't see you have much of a choice. I could drop you off back with the cops if you'd prefer. You have somewhere else to be?
      Lincoln: Matter of fact we do.
      Jane: Well we can't let you leave. And your father was expecting your brother to be with you, do you know where he is?
      Lincoln: Do you really think I'm gonna answer that?
      Jane: You need to start cooperating with us, Lincoln. We're only trying to help.

    • (on phone)
      Kellerman: The news is not good, Burrows was intercepted before I got here. It is a setback, but we are not that far behind. I –
      Kim: Paul, Paul. Calm down. It'll be all right, someone will take care of it.
      Kellerman: Someone who? Bill, tell me you're not bringing someone else in on this.
      Kim: You didn't think you were along on this, did ya? You're a soldier. There's an army. Tell me, what do you have on Sara Tancredi?
      Kellerman: What does that have to do with this?
      Kim: Go back to your original assignment.
      Kellerman: Bill, I am here now, I can do this, and then –
      Kim: The girl? We need to know what he father told her. When you find out, give me a call.

    • T-Bag: It don't matter what you do to me – I ain't talkin'.
      Bellick: Well I ain't stoppin' 'til I get what I came for.

    • Aldo: So, this is him.
      Lincoln: Lincoln Junior.
      Aldo: Named him after yourself.
      Lincoln: I wasn't going to name him Aldo. L.J. This is your grandfather. Aldo Burrows.
      L.J.: Hi.
      Aldo: I've waited for this for a long time. Um…I've arranged a safe place for both of you to go to.
      Lincoln: Well thanks for bailin' us out, but ah, we gotta meet Michael.
      Aldo: Where is he?
      Lincoln: Down by the border, a place called Bolshoi Booze.

    • Lincoln: You know my dad?
      Jane: Umhum.
      Lincoln: Well?
      Jane: Well enough. We used to work together.
      Lincoln: Oh. The Company.
      Jane: Yeah. But that was a long time ago. And now I work against them. Just like he does.
      Lincoln: So I guess you walked out on your family too, with no explanations , no goodbyes…
      Jane: I don't have a family. Lincoln, he really wants to see you. And your brother. He hasn't seen Michael since he was 10 years old.
      Man (to Jane): They're here.
      Jane: Wait here. (she walks off)
      Lincoln (grabs L.J): Lets go.
      L.J.: Huh? Where are we going?
      Lincoln: Michael never met your grandfather.

    • (on phone)
      Kellerman: Mahone, Lincoln Burrows has been apprehended.
      Mahone: Where?
      Kellerman: Arizona. I'm on my way and I need your talents on the ground as well.
      Mahone: I'll get there as soon as I can.
      Kellerman: I don't think you heard me. Get to Arizona.
      Mahone: I'm this close to Scofield.
      Kellerman: Well we have a bird in the hand.
      Mahone: Yeah, well so might I. You wanted me to figure out Scofield's rendezvous with Tancredi? It's happening today, and I'm sitting right on top of it.

    • (Sara is cleaning up Michael's wound)
      Sara: This isn't going to feel good.
      Michael: I have a high tolerance for pain. You know that.
      Sara: I do. And you're not a diabetic, are you?
      (Michael sighs)
      Sara: Michael, tell me something. You think that there is a part of you that enjoys this?
      Michael: Peroxide in an open wound? No.
      Sara: I mean escaping from prison and being on the run and the danger, the fear, the rush. All that. It ah, it feels to me like chasing a high. And, and I know what that's like and I should know better by now.
      Michael: I never thought about it like that. (waits) I know you heard this before, but it won't always be like this.
      Sara: From everything you told me, it's just getting worse.
      Michael: They can't chase us forever. The guy who caught up with us today, he stops at the border. That's why we have to get across. And I have the people in place to help us to do that, we're meeting them tomorrow. One more day, Sara. (holds her arm) One more day. That's all I'm asking.
      Sara: You can get cleaned up. Keep this dry.
      (Michael stands up and goes to the bathroom)
      Michael: Sara, I'm glad you came. (shuts the door)

    • Michael: Let's go! Get in the car.
      Sara: We can't get out this way. Michael, that's the only way outta here.
      Michael: Then that's the way we're going.

    • Michael: I wasn't sure, you would come.
      Sara: I didn't have a choice.
      Michael: This isn't gonna be easy for you.
      Sara: You said in your message, that you had a plan to make this right, I need to know what that is.

    • (When being chased by Mahone)
      Sara: We gotta get back to my car.
      Michael: It's too far.
      Sara: If we go now, before he gets more people...
      Michael: He's not gonna call for backup. He wants his privacy.
      Sara: Why?
      Michael: He's not trying to catch me. He's trying to kill me.

    • (talking about Mahone)
      Sara: If we go now before he gets more people?
      Michael: He is not going to call for backup. He wants his privacy.
      Sara: Why?
      Michael: He is not trying to catch me. He is trying to kill me.

    • Kim: This is why we hired Mr. Mahone. He's the official face here.
      Kellerman: Don't worry, this won't be official, and there won't be any questions.
      Kim: Of course there will. Just make sure no one's left to answer them.

    • Bellick (to T-Bag with a meat beater in his hand): Lookey what I found. Guess Ms. Hollander liked to beat some meat. Maybe a couple of whacks in the temple with this will help you remember where you put the money.

    • Geary (searching through T-Bag's possessions): For a millionaire you travel light.

  • NOTES (2)


    • "Then we have a bird in the hand" Kellerman's quote alludes to the proverb "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" It is an expression that means that it's better to keep what you have than risk losing everything by trying to get more.
