Spoiler:
Does this corroborate my early thoughts that Sara will be joining them on the run once they escape?

I was able to watch the show early last week.... I have been sitting on it for two weeks until I was able to watch 18. Definitely one of the the best episodes yet (in my opinion!) I wish I was the spoiler kind, but I'm not. The look on Michael's face is priceless though!

The tweener plays a bigger role in this weeks episode too.

treszoks, I would answer your question but then I would just spoil it for ya.

I think they want it to look like the accident killed him. A gunshot to the head would probably raise some questions

V-Dub is in da house! Pimp that Prison cell!

Michael just can't catch a break with Sara (playing into the plight of the woman scorned on imperfect info).

I am going to assume Michael intentionally let Tweet know about the plan. How it will turn out, I don't know but the preview looks friggin awesome.

What the hell did the whole accident thing accomplish, as far as advancing the show? Lincoln ends up back in solitary under closer watch, but Lincoln's dad and the SS guy are at the exact same point they were before. I really didn't like the way that was played out.

The rest of it I enjoyed, and I agree Michael better have known Tweener would spill the beans and had a different plan. I'm not so sure though.

He had to know. The guy's always thinking ahead of the next person. Great episode.

May's looking to be a good month for Prison Break.

I think they were hoping the car accident would kill Lincoln, and if not, SS will kill Lincoln with his dumbass leather glove.

Yeah I understand that...but from a writing or plot advancement standpoint, it seems SS and "Dad" were nothing but filler, since they didn't accomplish a thing.

Yeah, good point. But he could've just told us, he didn't have to make such a scene.

A bullet to the head isn't what normally happens when get into a car crash. It would look less like a murder and more like just something to chalk up to a result from the car accident.

Can someone tell me what the hell Abruzzi has to do with the guy helping out Lincoln's lawyer/girlfriend? Did I miss something?

My guess is they're going to hold her hostage so Michael will give up Fibonacci

We don't know yet. All we know is that last week somebody came up to the lawyer guy (can't remember his name for the life of me) and mentioned that he still owed them a favor or something. They never said who the guy worked with. I think that they wanted everybody to think that the guy was loyal to the Company or the Vice President, but it turns out that he was with Abruzzi's gang.

And while I found the "outside" parts to be as "meh" as always, it was nice to finally see a little more intersection between the two aspects of the show. We had the Abruzzi connection, as well as Bellick meeting Kellerman. Knowing what we know about Bellick, I could see him sniffing around if he ends up seeing the guy around again. It'd be a neat twist to have Bellick end up being an asset to Lincoln's case.

Also, that's got to be a record number of things that (seemingly) hindered the plan this week. Not only is Sarah pissed at Michael, but after all the trouble he went to to get the key, she went ahead and changed the lock on him. On top of that, Lincoln's now under 24-hour watch, and Bellick seems to have found their "on-ramp".

That pretty much says it all.

I agree with that Mike gave up the plan on purpose. It's standard slight of hand - make them look at something while you do something else. With all their attention on the hole in the break room, they can be free to take another route.

So what's the bigger reason why Michael did it.

To help out Tweener cause he loves to help people out or to create the decoy?

Great episode. I don't know what was funnier; T-Bag shitting himself when he sees that Abruzzi's back or Abruzzi spouting that bullshit about wanting to "make peace" and "heal" with Fibonacci.

Poor Tweener getting done like that just for that one card. I wonder if he actually sliced Avacado's dick clean off, or just injured him badly. Gotta laugh at Bellick saying something about how they must've been doing some gymnastics in there.

Next week's looks... wow.

Maybe I missed something even though Ive seen every episode, but when did things between Michael and Sarah move from longing looks and light touches to making out in the infirmary? Maybe that was the first time, but it felt like it wasnt the first time they had been open about it.
