Prison Break: Good Fences

goodfences.jpgSo we found out what was in the box, and yep, kids -- someone had been watching too many Brad Pitt movies and pulled a "Se7en."

Guess it's official: Sarah Wayne Callies will not be returning to "Prison Break." Hell, she couldn't even come by for 20 minutes so they could make a model of her head. Could it have been any more fake? According to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello, it apparently wasn't all due to the former actress-previously-known-as-Sara-Tancredi's new baby.

The real shame is not killing off a major character. Hell, that keeps things spicey. I mean, c'mon -- we're in season three here... but c'mon, Linc. How could you not tell Michael? Maybe you could have baked him a cake and wrote something on it. After all, Sona residents can receive mail.

Scofield is still sweaty. It could be the shirt or the fact that he has a prison break to plan and Whistler keeps hounding him about his stupid bird book.

Meanwhile, all is not well in the land of Lechero. There's a blackout. Thankfully, Scofield is an engineer -- and the one that caused it. Would any engineer know how to dig and fix the electricity? I'm no rocket scientist, but apparently Scofield is.

Speaking of not well, Mahone is looking like his same freakish self -- but this week, he's having of hallucinations of Haywire (!). Apparently whatever killed Haywire actually did make him stronger, at least in Mahone's mind. Thankfully T-Bag's new afterschool job as drug dealer is helping turn Mahone back into his same self-confident, psychotic self. How he and Michael will team up and get out of there is beyond me. Maybe Michael will throw Mahone to the now-electrified fences.

Aside from Haywire, we had another great return: Sucre is back from the land of totally-annoying. Thank goodness; I was starting to wish him serious ill will. After finding out about Sara's head, he decided to pull his out of his ass and start helping Linc. He's already got himself a grave-digging gig and has begun the fence hole for the great escape, part two. Welcome back, brother!

A few other thoughts...
• Will Lechero and Basketball Jones be in on the escape? If not, don't waste my time with their characters.
• Who pays Lechero's cell phone bill -- and how does it get paid?
• Michael couldn't take his shirt off, even to dig??
• I think Whistler was fake digging. The guy didn't break a sweat!
• Speaking of Whistler, how is this guy involved with the Company? It can't be as simple as he says.
• Is T-Bag's good arm bionic? I want to see that guy wrestle the one-armed man from "The Fugitive."
• Poor Bellick. That's all I can say about that.

So what will be Scofield's motivation now? Rescue his nephew? Get back at the people who took his love? Get more tattoos? Stay tuned. -- Rachel Cericola

Michael can't take off his shirt because then everyone would see Wentworth Miller got tired of getting up at 3:00 am every shooting day to get stencilled, and to give the writers time to come up with some Joker-like deus ex machina explanation for Michael's tattoo fade-out. Me? I'm betting on an unforseen reaction between hot coffee, corpse deodorant and black fiber tip pen ink...

When you think about it, PB's the ultimate "screw you" show. I mean, the company's entire plot for Season 1 revolved around putting Caroline Reynolds in power (who has since quit) and keeping Terrance Steadmean alive (who is now dead), the entire reason Lincoln was chosen was so The Company could get to his father (who has also now died). And NOW, when the entire reason Michael ended up for Sona was so he could protect Sara, she's now dead anyway! As frustrating as it is, you've gotta hand it to the writers. They do some pretty balls-y things.

The best bits of this episode? Mahone threatening Michael at the end (THERE'S that crazy Mahone I wanted to see!), seeing T-Bag commit his first murder of the season (about damn time) and Sucre finally having a reason to still be in the show ('cause, as much as I love him, that was just starting to piss me off).

As for Sara's death, I s'pose there's still a way to write themselves out of it (the head could've been of the woman from the morgue who looked like Sara - that would give that pointless scene a good pay-off too), but after reading all the press about her departure from the show, that seems unlikely. I'm not all that fussed though (as long as T-Bag is kept 'til the very end :P), but man, some fans are gonna be PISSED.

Read the link to find out about Sarah.

Matt: Couldn't agree more about Sucre, Mahone and T-Bag. Good or bad, I am glad they are back to the way we know and love them.

I was a big fan, but the show is becoming a farce. Makes you wonder what the scriptwriters are snorting?

Who really cares now about a bunch of lowlifes in a crappy prison?

This show now stinks.

Now, I'll record it and simply fast forward it to see the bits with Wentworth Miller.

Oh - they so lost a viewer with Sarah's demise.

And off with the shirt! Can't they CGI his tats on his bod? :D

prison break 2. why is the company after scofield when kellerman is in court with all the evidence against them. doesn't make any sense.

prison break 3. i did not know that Generals in Panama are stupid. he has in his custody a woman who was able to mobilize a whole troop of helicopters and army trucks to burn and bang the prison, yet he escorts her alone only with a driver as a bodyguard. and then after killing the general, she was still able to come in and out of the prison, and around panama like nothing happened.

i think sarah's alive and that they have her someplace because there's still PB4 and she'll be the collateral.
