Prison Break: Call Waiting

callwaiting.jpgWhat's in the box? We don't know either, but there were a lot of events leading up what I'm guessing won't be such a shocking moment next week...

This week, Michael desperately needed to speak to Sara. Maybe he wanted to apologize (again!), maybe he wanted to see if he can have her parking spot on the Fox lot.

Problem is: He needs a phone. Since Lechero has apparently forgotten all about Michael's miracle of turning dirt into water, he instead turns to T-Bag. T-Bag is very familiar with reaching out and touching someone -- so much so that he is afraid that his new Sona friends might turn on him. See, Panama doesn't take kindly to pedophiles. Instead of having his cover blown, he agrees to help Michael make his call.

What a sweaty scene that call was, at not just because Michael is still wearing that damned long-sleeve shirt (much to Connie's dismay). How much time has lapsed? Maybe you can figure out by Scofield's sweat ring. Speaking of sleeves, when will the tattoos make their season three debut?

On the outside, Linc was having a rough week. First he had to sit through endless cliches with Susan B, then he found out that he needed to find Sara and LJ -- at least if he wanted them to live. The ransom photos apparently held clues to where they were being held. Did anyone notice that Sara looked like Tina Fey? I was expecting to see Alec Baldwin's thumb in the shot.

Michael finally gets his call with Sara. It didn't sound like her, but it sort of looked like her back -- or at least Tina Fey's back. Maybe Tina could have a side gig to fill in her "30 Rock" schedule. The call was extremely anti-climactic, but it did give us (well Michael) a few clues to where the kidnappers were hiding Sara and LJ.

Whistler was getting a little irate at Michael -- or at least Linc. Since he has no clue who Linc is and obviously has no idea that he's built like a brick house, he got all up in Michael's grille about the bird book. This guy has been smelling non-sewage-filled air for how long now, and he's already copping an attitude?

Maybe it's because he's got his own little connection to the Company as well.

Linc did break Sara's code, and after delivering a few blows to the stomach, he found LJ and Sara. Then, about two seconds later, he lost them again. Plan B: Michael has to actually bust Whistler out of Sona.

Mahone was freaking for a fix -- or maybe some screen time. He didn't much of a role in this episode, except to get his court date (July 13, 2006), have a few shakes, and then hassle Michael about his impending prison break.

He practically got top billing compared to Belick and Sucre. Why exactly were those two in this episode?

Since that question can never be answered, what exactly do you think is in the box? Something tells me it's not Gwyneth's -- or Sara's -- head. That would just make Sarah Wayne Callies' departure too quick, but kind of cool. However, judging by Linc's face there's got to be a digit in there somewhere. Stay tuned. -- Rachel Cericola

Shouldn't that be July 13, 2006 since the show is set in 05?

That's right! I forgot... thanks for the catch, Matt.

Curse that long sleeved shirt!

I've heard a couple of people complain about Mahone's purpose this episode, but I have to say I enjoy him just for the sake of it. His acting (taking it out on the lawyer who came to visit him, talking to Whistler on the bunk bed) is enough in itself to have him in a scene. He's stealing the show from Michael.

I don't know, I love Mahone but he's at his best when he completely flips out ("I JUST WANT MY LIFE BACK!!!"), so far he's been pretty mellow this season.

I think he needs his drugs just to be normal. Either he's going to find some or level off to the point where he can flip out without them.
