    I thought this was the worst episode of the entire season, hardly advancing the plot and basically giving Michael and Lincoln a fake plotline for the entire episode. We didn't get to hear the recording, which was a big letdown from the end of last week. Hearing the recording was something we all expected the episode to start off with and when that didn't happen I think we all had a negitive feeling towards the episode.



    The fake helper was a nice twists, but I hate one episode stand alone plots that don't result in them moving the plot forward. I thought it was the weakest Michael / Lincoln episode to date.



    C-Notes storyline is still bad. It never has been good, never will be good. I really do hope that he just killed himself. Though Im sure a guard will see him and be like "Hey that guys trying to kill himself now"



    T-Bag / Brads storyline wasnt even that good. T-Bag randomly killed some doctor, though the four minute scene with the docotr before he killed him was kind of uncalled for. Overall - bad episode.moreless
  • The writers decided to deliver another filler, to gain some time and get to the point only in the end.

    7.0
    Details/Progress (To point A to B) -» (7/10). Ok, point A in Michal´s case is the recording that he have that implicate the President but he need someone in the government to help him, so the writers create a filler to buy time until the next episode. C-Note situation come to a supposed end. T-bag was just a distraction, he could get what he wanted in a easy way. Sucre scenes appears here to make everyone happy, but he will have more problems because Bellick somehow will find him.



    Plot Details/Holes- » (7/10). The doctor doesn´t recognize T-bag, no one does in Prison Break. The phone call for Mr. Green was very strange.



    Drama - » (8/10). Sara and her drama. C-Note too have his ultimate problem. Even Kellerman have the rights too. It seems that Sucre happiness will end soon.



    Suspense/Tension - » (6/10). Don´t expect good material here.



    Surprises/Shocks - » (7/10). T-bag brings a surprise, also the situation with the tape brings another surprise.



    Time and Scene Management - » (7/10). Michael scenes was most of the part filler scenes, only when the real Mr. Green appears you have what it is real important to know. T-bag also have is filler scenes, but that was entertaining and that scene in the airport will be important. Sucre and Maricruz are happy, but only one scene would be enough to explain that. C-Note escape this time.



    Beginning - » (7/10). Good presentation, full of mystery.



    Complication Phase - » (7/10). Meeting Mr. Green is the complication here.



    Climax - » (6/10). When you discover the problem with the tape.



    Ending - » (7/10). The usual ending, trouble for everyone, only C-Note ended up in the worse situation.



    What I liked -» Finally some happiness for Sucre. The T-bag scenes with the doctor was nice.



    What I Didn´t Liked -» Mr. Green filler scenes.



    The writers decided to deliver another filler, to gain some time and get to the point only in the end.moreless
  • Amazing.

    9.0
    Lincoln, Michael and Sara find the evidence they need to expose the conspiracy. Mahone uses C-Note to locate Michael. Bellick goes to Mexico to find Sucre while T-Bag steals the identity of a psychiatrist. Kellerman prepares to assassinate the President. What can I say about this episode, it is awesome! I loved it. I felt so sorry for C-Note, I was crying again, even though I know what is going to happen. I loved the way Lincoln and Michael made the fake Cooper Green do everything, it was awesome and very exctiing to watch. I love this episode. Not as good as some episode in the season but still very good.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • Cooper Green's phone number is (312) 555-0124.

    • From this episode on, Marshall Allman is credited as "Special Guest Star." Peter Stormare, a former regular cast member returning as a guest, did not receive that credit.

    • Michael, Lincoln and Sara's hotel room number is 1006.

    • Mahone hands Bellick a paper that says "Reporte de Policia Federal", which is Spanish for "Federal Police Report".

    • Kristine said that Kellerman moved out of their home when he was 18. In "Bad Blood", he said they haven't spoke in 15 years. According to this, Kellerman can't be less than 33 years old.

    • Though this episode takes place in June, fake Cooper Green's breath can be seen in a few shots.

    • T-Bag's money inside his knapsack should have been easily discovered at the airport because it should have gone through the x-ray machine. As a SOP in the airport, all luggage carry-on or otherwise should go through X-ray. Had they discovered the money, It should have raised a red flag and T-Bag couldn't have gotten inside the plane that easily.

    • You can actually visit europeangoldfinch.net. Scroll down and find a topic headed Attn:Fish and you will see the same conversation as in the episode.

    • Although the brothers and Sara finally get their hands on the evidence needed to uncover the conspiracy, we don't get to hear the tape.

    • There is a mark of contusion on the face of Kim caused by Lincoln. When he called Mahone, on the first shot, there was no mark, yet on the second one, there was the mark.

    • When Michael is kicking the fake Cooper Green, you can clearly see someone running behind Michael. When freezing that shot, it appears to be Lincoln. Than there's a shot of the fake Cooper Green on the ground, followed by a shot of Michael's face, after that shot Lincoln comes running out the building, again.

  • QUOTES (27)

    • Sucre: Look, mami, look! I told you. Llamas!
      Maricruz: I think those are alpacas.
      Sucre: That's what I said, a pack-a llamas.

    • Kellerman: I am going to do something, I have to do something, that a lot of people are going to think is horrible.
      Kristine: Paul...
      Kellerman: And you just remember the brother you grew up with. You just remember him. You're my sister, Kristine. I love you.

    • Sara (standing at her father's grave): You look good, Bruce. You've done well for yourself at my father's expense.

    • C-Note: Fish (Michael) is not going to peek his little white ass out from any rock that he's hiding unless he sees...
      Mahone: A familiar face? And that's your face, right?

    • Mahone: (to Bellick) You're supposed to be under the radar. Are you under the radar, Brad? This is an office full of federal agents who now have all seen your face.

    • C-Note: (to Mahone) I'm going to hold up my end of the bargain. And guess what? You hold up yours. Get off my back!

    • Mahone: (to C-Note) I'm the one who got Kacie released. I'm the one who gets Dede medical care. I'm the one that allows you to visit them and I'm the one that can take it away.

    • L.J.: (to Lincoln) I guess I'm just saying that for now, for a while, I just want to stay in one place and have something normal.

    • Kellerman: I'm not the brother you remember. I've changed, in a really bad way.

    • C-Note: You and I know how smart this kid (Michael) is, right?
      Mahone: Clearly smarter than you, considering you're the one wearing bright orange.

    • Michael: So we blackmail her.
      Cooper Green: I'm an officer of the court. I... I didn't say that.

    • Cooper Green: Actually I said it couldn't help exonerate you in a court of law. Maybe it can help you outside the law.

    • Mahone: (to Bellick) Ever been to Mexico?

    • (upon hearing Agent Kim's orders)
      Agent Mahone: I just want you to know (long pause) that uh.. I'm going to keep my promise to you and I'm going to help your family. But I am going to need your help too (pause) and this is something that you're not going to want to do and I don't want you to do this, but I need you to do this and if you don't I will have Kaycee arrested again, and I will have Dede's medical care stopped and I will hate myself and it will make me sick, but I swear to God.. I will ruin their lives. Don't make me.
      C-Note: Man, what the hell are you saying to me?
      Agent Mahone (takes a breath): Later today you'll get a package in your cell that's gonna be from me. I need you to use it. Okay?
      C-Note: Okay. What's in it?
      (Mahone stands up and looks him in the eye but doesn't answer his question. He then starts to walk away)
      C-Note: Yo. Yo! What the hell is in it, man?
      Agent Mahone (turns around just before he leaves the room): Just use it or you'll wish you had.
      C-Note: Yo, what's in the package? Yo, what the hell is in the package man?
      (as Mahone is exiting through the door, C-Note shouts) YO, WHAT THE HELL IS IN THE PACKAGE MAN!? (the door closes)

    • (phone call)
      Agent Mahone: Yeah?
      Agent Kim: Get to Ebert Park, I have men on Scofield and Burrows.
      Agent Mahone: Ebert Park?
      Agent Kim: Scofield set a meet with a target we're surveilling.
      Agent Mahone: What the hell is Scofield doing in Chicago?
      Agent Kim: You're asking why the deer walked into your crosshairs? Just take the shot Mahone.
      Mahone: I'm on it, I'm on it.
      Agent Kim: ...and Alex. (pause) Franklin.
      Mahone: I'm using Franklin to help me find Scofield... (cut off by Agent Kim)
      Agent Kim: Yeah. We don't need him for that anymore. What I do need... is a death without questions. (hangs up)

    • (on a rooftop overlooking where the President is scheduled to make an appearance, an agent hears Kellerman's approach and draws his weapon)
      Kellerman: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. (flashes his badge) We've got a "Boom-Charlie" a half-block South. Team leader wants you there right now.
      Agent (lowering his weapon): What's the E.M.O.?
      Kellerman: He's got an I.N.D. strapped to him... (as he's talking he quickly draws his silenced pistol and shoots the agent in the chest)

    • Lincoln: The woman that set me up...is going to set me free.
      Michael: I think she'll sign it with her own hand.

    • Kristine: So... You wanna know how Mom is?
      Kellerman: Just cause someone spits you out of their crotch, doesn't make them your mother... that woman is insane... do you remember? Have you suppressed it all?

    • Kristine: I hoped maybe I would see you at Dad's funeral.
      Kellerman: That man died long before his heart stopped, that funeral was a formality.
      Kristine: That's really not fair.
      Kellerman: It's true.

    • Mahone: (telephone conversation to Kim) Brought me in too late, they're gone.
      Kim: Then find them.
      Mahone: Let me get this straight. The brothers come back to a city that's 15 miles from the prison they escaped from. Why would they do that?
      Kim: Maybe it's because the President's in Chicago to make a speech and they're up to something. Which is why we need to find them.
      Mahone: (laughs gently) And, of all people, they wanna meet with somebody from the Attorney Generals' office.
      Kim: Your point?
      Mahone: Burrows is innocent?
      Kim: Wow, you're good Alex. As advertised. No one's truly innocent, you of all people should know that.

    • Mahone: (to C-Note) You're a good man, a good father.

    • Gun dealer (on the rifle he has just sold to Kellerman): Serial numbers have been cleaned. Chamber's been scraped to throw off ballistics just in case you're not, you know, shooting at tin cans.
      Kellerman (looks up at him): No, I'm hunting bigger game than that. (Kellerman then pulls out his silenced pistol)
      Gun dealer: Hey, hey.
      (Kellerman quickly shoots him in the chest, then again when he is down on the ground)

    • Bellick: I came for my damn money. See, how a reward works, someone gets rewarded the money. Mahone: Patoshik died, you stupid son of a bitch. There's paperwork involved. Of course you're going to get the money, but you're going to have to be patient. And if you ever come into my office again, you'll not only never see the cash, you'll never see another sunrise.

    • Michael: We have something...
      Cooper Green: The tape.
      Michael: You've heard of it?
      Cooper Green: Well, I know a lot of people have been looking for it.

    • LJ: I love you, dad.
      Lincoln: I love you too, son.

    • LJ: Dad.
      Lincoln: Yeah.
      LJ: I want you to end this, more than anything.

    • LJ: I didn't know you had Jane's number.
      Lincoln: Yeah well, we exchanged numbers when you guys split.
      LJ: You never called.
      Lincoln: No, yeah, sorry; it's been dangerous, you know, real dangerous.
      LJ: It's okay.
