Prison Break 3.21 - Panama Review
Monday, March 19, 2007
With the realization that their play for a pardon is permanently defunct, Linc and Michael start to formulate their escape from the country. Their destination? Panama. This Prison Break is the beginning of the setup for next seasons story arc, so it is a good time to pay close attention! But there is more than Linc and Michael going on here, we have T-bag, Sucre, and Bellick in Mexico, Sarah trying to reunite with the brothers, and Mahone now on the run himself. How did it all turn out? Read on to find out.
The brothers make some shady arrangements to head south on board a freighter, an arrangement that doesn't seem that accommodating for Sarah who is 'otherwise' involved. It is all going to come down to Sarah sacrificing herself to let the guys escape. This is not going to bode well for her since their testimony would be critical to any sort of defense. Will she or won't she?
Down in Mexico, Bellick is leaning on Sucre harder than ever now that the five million is in the mix. Sucre is starting to show some concern. If he gets Bellick the money, is Bellick going to let him go? You can see some dangerous alternatives forming in Sucre's mind. Meanwhile, T-bag is in full out creepy mode again, this time with a hapless hooker he is using as a human doll.
Brighter days are ahead for C-Note. He is offered a sweet deal to turn evidence on Mahone, a deal that could have C-note seeing freedom. This would be a great payoff for this character who really has been the least characteristic of a prison breaker. Of course, it all hinges on Mahone being charged, which means Mahone must stay alive.
In the end of things, as you would expect, Sarah makes the ultimate sacrifice and the guys are on their way with a brief stop-over in Mexico on their minds. The entire episode has this feeling of moving farther and farther away from the season two arc and towards... well, you can't really say at this point, but it is definitely exciting.
