Prison Break: Photo Finish

photo.jpgTonight's two-hour extravaganza was broken up into two episodes, so I am returning the favor... The second hour's write-up can be found under "Vamanos."

Michael, Mahone and Whistler started the episode still working on a plan. This plan involves a ladder. Apparently they must have had that in the Sona gift shop, because it took Whistler about two seconds to find one. If only he could find air conditioning that fast.

Linc finally got caught in his web of lies. Just hours before the next breakout was about to commence, Michael found out that his dreamgirl had no head.

The mystery man from "Interference" now has a name: Tyge. What he didn't have was a shirt. Michael, on the other hand, still has the same sweaty shirt.

As usual, all is not well in Lechero land. Sammy almost pulled a chicken foot on T-Bag and Lechero himself was twisting our man's one good hand to get information.

Sammy is one shady character. If T-Bag thinks you're shady, that really says something about your character. Lechero can feel the knife in his back, but can't quite see that Sammy is the one twisting the handle. T-Bag tried to work with Michael to frame Sammy for murder. Not sure why he needed Michael's help. Isn't the guy's one hand enough of a lethal weapon? I swear that thing has killed and kidnapped at least 10 people so far in this series.

Bellick is, again, a waste. The guy has become a complete joke this season. I don't want to deny the man a paycheck, but even Tyge was against him? I understand how Tyge wanted to come off as a force to be reckoned with to gain respect and a shirt inside Sona. Bellick could have returned the favor by pummeling him into the dusty ground. We just met him; he wouldn't have been missed.

Apparently, someone else agreed. He was dead about eight minutes into the episode.

Someone I wouldn't mind seeing killed in the first few minutes of hour two: Susan B. She's a bad one-hit wonder to the tune of Night Ranger. Unfortunately, we got to see her turn all mommy on LJ for about 10 seconds. She made him a nice grilled cheese and served it to him pants-less. This wasn't supposed to be a turn-on; it was to show off her bad-ass scars.

Other weird happenings:
• Rape was a recurring theme in this episode. Not making fun, but Lechero's mom and Susan B. both had the dirtiest of deeds done to them. Was there a point there?
• Why was Basketball Jones spared a beat-down after spilling corn husks on Lechero's shoes? Even more puzzling: Where do they get corn? I am missing that summer sweetness already.
• Does Sucre own any clothing besides a tank top?
• Mahone got a surprise visit. The end result should score him a much cushier cell for 4 years. This could not be the end of Mahone's storyline. Does anyone else see this going horribly wrong?

Glad to see the chicken foot back as a guest star. The scrawny gauntlet was thrown down too. It wasn't Sammy. It wasn't T-Bag. It was Michael -- and he threw it in the direction of Whistler. Say what? Yeah -- say nothing. It turns out it's all part of the plan. Now I could have guessed this; so could you. But the writers decided to keep the suspense down to a minimum and blow that surprise by the end of the first hour.

Where will hour two go? See you in about 60 minutes. -- Rachel Cericola

I'm the Reader's Jeer of the Week and it's about my hatred for Scofield's long sleeved shirts!

Judging by the previews for next week, the shirt will finally get sent to the cleaners -- and the tattoos are back baby!

In all fairness, it IS a prison show. I'm surprised there aren't more references to rape...

This episode was kind of disappointing after hearing it get talked up so much (Nick Santora repeatedly stated in interviews that it was one of the "best ever," but aside from the last few minutes I didn't think it was too special - though then again, last year's The Killing Box got a HUGE response despite also being a pretty average episode with a kickass ending). Though I've still yet to watch the one after this.

By the way, Episode 6 actually ends with Michael chicken foot-ting Whistler, at no point is it revealed to be part of any plan in THIS episode. But thanks for spoiling the start of Episode 7 for me.

Didn't Michael and Whistler meet back in their cell before the episode ended? I thought that was the case. Sorry... it all blended together.

Sorry if I ruined it, but I thought that was lame anyway. The second episode was where the excitement was at!

No, this episode ends with the camera zooming in on Michael's eyes after he throws the chicken foot down on Whistler. Though I kinda saw it coming anyway. As upset as Michael may be over Sara, he wouldn't just let L.J. die too because of it.
