After (stupidly) watching the previews for this episode last week, I'm really worried that
Spoiler:
they're advancing this too fast. I mean does he attempt the break out this week? What can possibly happen after that either outside of the prison or if he gets caught? This doesn't seem like 24 where they can just throw in some random new twist. It's very limited being that it's called PRISON BREAK.

This is one instance where I really wish I had not watched the previews to tonight's episode. I should have learned from "24"...oh well.

Spoiler:
I'm thinking maybe he'll live inside the walls for an episode or two.
It does seem to be moving a bit fast if he actually gets out tonight.

I assume he had to get onto the roof to figure out which street would have no cop cars, and therefore be the way they could go when breaking out. Fitz was empty, so that's the way they should go.

I thought he said one of them had to be taken out.

Maybe he said something like "We have to take one out" meaning they had to take one of the roads to get out.....but they were trying to make us think they had to take out a guard or something.

The cat-n-mouse games are fun, but the feds are so one-note it's painful to watch.

The look on Veronica's face was chilling when she realized it was most probably the guy who had been "helping" her.

Yeah, "taken out" as in "the road that needs to be taken out of the prison". Obviously said that way to mislead the viewer, bit clever I thought.

The plot with the Secret Service and the evil grandma is already getting tedious. If I had Tivo'd the show, I'd probably just FF past those parts.

Who is that old bitch? I'm gonna say she's either the first lady or the VP's wife.

Yeah i keep flipping the channel when they go outside the prison, but I have to say I'm enjoying the actual "prison break" material more and more each week. There is some clever stuff there. overall, this remains a good show!

I thought this was the best episode of the series. Very intense eventhough you knew the warden was going to block the transfer at the end.

Just call the Secret Service office and file a complaint or an inquiry w/ the higher ups already! Aside from that annoying aspect of the show, I kind of like it.

A quick question (speculatory but spoilerized anyway)...

Spoiler:
Have they ever explicitly stated the VP was a male?


Or did I just miss it getting mentioned?

I think they're trying to be 24-ish. Make you think it is him but it isn't. I'm betting her place is just bugged.

And a very interesting point on the woman and the VP, DRG. Not sure if its necessary to be spoilered, though as it is mere speculation. I'm guessing you are right or it is the VP'd mother.

a great episode. Like others have said, you kind of have to suspend belief for a bit just like in 24 to enjoy the show. If the brother wasn't out and about with the "gen pop, it would make for a boring show. They are revealing quite of bit though so this is BETTER than what happened with LOST. Thanks for the guesses about the woman on the phone with the secret service agents. That would be quite a twist if true.

enjoyed this episode. even though I did watch the previews from last week, the previews didn't give anything away.

the scene where he had to "hide" by hanging up in the "ceiling" while the maintainence guy was smoking was a total rip from Spider-Man.

Even though you knew he was going to show up in the warden's office like he did, even though you knew the warden was going to block the transfer, even though you knew the warden was going to tell his wife.....it was still a pretty intense episode.

This show just keeps getting better in my opinion. Not a big fan of the stuff outside the prison as well, but I deal with it. Maybe that story line will pick up in the future once/if they get out.

That was such an awesome episode. Best one since the first in my opinion. I can't wait to rewatch it and pick up on those minor details. I was focused on the Indians game.

I can tell I'm going to hate this show in 4-6 episodes.

I had a good time watching last night's episode -- as predictable as it was.

That's a good one. Never thought of that.
