At least that might spark some originality into a set of storylines that is rapidly become more tiresome week after week. With only 4 episodes to go and a third season greenlighted, how much padding are we going to be subjected to in order to get 22 additional episodes?

You don't have to watch if you don't want to. I on the other hand am loving this season and look forward to a season 3. Can't wait for tonight's episode!!!

What happen to Lincoln's son? Did they just completely wash his storyline away? I thought this episode was good and I'm looking foward to the rest of this season. I am just having a hard time seeing how the story will stretch for 26-30 episodes more.

Good to see in the opening Michael and Lincoln are still going out to public places in broad daylight. Maybe they got those hats from the sameplace Jack Bauer gets his hoodies.

They ended the one good story they had going with Bellick in Fox River.

The stories with the other cons really are all boring.

If they drop a con a week, maybe the show can focus on the more interesting story lines--Mike, Linc, Sara, Kellerman, and Bellick in prison.

Of course he can, Mahone has those super pills

But I love this show, and I'll watch it for as long as its on. Hell, The Fugitive was on for four seasons.

This is Prison Break - men in suits can do anything they want.

It is a lot more believable than him being there in the first place.

Only in Prison Break can one go from prison guard, to inmate, to FBI agent in a matter of weeks.

I loved how he was practicing his line before going to talk to that chick.

I also liked the fake president's voice thing and making those decoys jump off the moving train.

Didn't like Haywire jumping--I thought Mahone was done being Mr. Kim's biach...?

I think Mahone talked Haywire into jumping so he didn't have to kill him. Mahone knew he was mentally challenged and tried to tell Mr. Kim that but he wanted him dead anyway.

@ Bellick breaking Michael's "code" and then getting out of prison in 1 day and joining the FBI.

psssst... I left the keys to the car hidden on top of the left rear tire - you will need them to start the truck, but the door is open and there is 5K in $100's, a hand gun, FBI badge, and a folder on the passenger's seat. Good Luck!

He figured it out on his own. He does have 15 years on the force and 3 presidential citations.

Bellick was able to recognize Michael's message to Sarah because he also did a stint in AA, so he would have been familiar with the book. By this point, he most likely would have known generally how Michael thought, and he knew Sarah had been in AA (or NA, or whatever), so it's not really a stretch to buy that he figured it out.

We don't know how long it was sitting there. For all we know, it could have been left fairly soon before he was actually released.

Not only that, but it was in a prison parking lot. Lots of security and most likely surveilance. I'd call that a fairly low-risk place, myself.

I finally got caught up on the last two episodes of Prison Break.

I was having serious deja vu about the part about the key to a box in a private cigar bar. I kept thinking "Didn't that scene already happen in this show?" I kept racking my brain, when suddenly I remembered that was a scene in the short-lived series "Runaway" with Donnie Wahlberg earlier this season! Too funny, I watch to much TV. I had another Runaway deja-vu when they showed T-Bag take off with his fake family in the car. I thought, wow, that would be a great spin-off show, T-Bag living in some small town while holding his family captive. It would be like a twisted version of Runaway.

I had to laugh when Haywire was running from Bellick and he first tried to get his dog to run, who just stood there. Haywire should have named the dog Shithead instead of Larry.

The whole Bellick story really did move fast but I am glad they got him out of the prison. I did have a laugh during the previous episode at his "poor man's version" of Dr. Sara Tancredi.

I thought the most ridiculous part of the episode was Mr. Kim's "Forget about Scofield & Lincoln, you need to kill Haywire!" directive.
Yeah, Haywire was certainly a threat to bringing down the multi-national conspiracy.
