Not bad, we get details on Scofield's special talents/condition (LLI). Lincoln's son finally gives the SS the slip. Scofield also puts T-bag in his place, while Abruzzi loses his place in the food chain after his holdings are wiped out on the outside. And Lincoln spends the hour very frustrated until his son gets word to him that he's okay.

Good episode, though you could see the kid giving the SS the slip a mile away. Still another quality one overall.

OK episode. Scofield saved the wrong kid, shouldn't let that T-Bag fucked that little bitch. Talking shit like that after T-Bag walked away.

Watching how they tracked LJ is one of the reason why I disabled my navigation/GPS in my phone a long time ago. It might be helpful for emergency but I don't want anyone tracking my whereabout.

I really liked this episode. I think someone needs to cast "soft" on Wentworth Miller.

"How many inmates does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"

I think they're waiting for the right time to do something with T-Bag..either use him as some sort of setup or something...

Interesting problem they are in right now. I don't see why Abruzzi (sp?) didn't off bald fat pirate. Kill the top man and you become the top man. Well sometimes you get offed in kind, but he was the top man before so I'd think he would become it again. In any case the bald fat pirate is going to be after Michael now, since he was the one who got to Fibonacci. Seems like they are in aquite a big problem.

And as for the fresh fish, what a bitch. If I were Michael I would have at least let T-Bag bitch slap the kid for being "too hard". Making T-Bag out to be a little wimp is lame, and may be harmful to the plan later on.

I would guess it's because a dead guy in a cell needs to be explained and the killer at least looked for... where as anyone just hurt is always "I fell" as a few people did this last ep...

"Do you think he found the hole?"

Although the "shocking" ending could be seen from a mile away, this was a good low-key episode.

The look on Sucre's face was fantastic after that line .

I'm guessing you mean after the season because how can you have a 2nd season of people breaking out of Prison once they are already out.

Yeah I meant the hiatus. Ahhh well, at least I'll have 24 to keep me busy until then. Do you think they will release PB on dvd before it comes back?

Don't ask me how they have a second season but I've been saying for a while now that they had outlines for 2 - yes, 2 - seasons of the show ready to go before the first episode even aired.

I'm getting a little tired of the "Working on the plan/uh oh, huge obstacle pops up which seems deadly for the plan/it's all worked out at the end" formula that happens at least once an episode.

They've already discussed the seasond season...
Spoiler:
...being them trying to fully uncover and expose the conspiracy after escaping. I'm guessing they'll have to evade a cop or two as well.

I am incredibly disappointed in myself for not catching that. Maybe I was too busy munching on some Halloween candy at that moment.
