Prison Break: Boxed In

boxed.jpgOh that's right... we're still in season three. Welcome back to "Prison Break," kids. We missed you.

I'm not going to bore everyone will a full season recap; that's what our archives are for. However, part two of the season kicked off with Scofield getting taken out of Sona, so he could get grilled about The Company and its attack on the prison.

Instead of cooperating, Scofield got put in the "hot box," which appeared to be chicken wire coated in Saran Wrap. Maybe if he had removed his long-sleeved shirt, it wouldn't have been so bad.

Instead of sweating it out, Scofield sang like a caged canary... well, until he got out of that cage. He spilled the whole story about The Company to the fuzz, so if you missed this season, it might have been a good time to catch up. Sadly, the guard found Schofield's story to be unbelievable. Hey -- who doesn't?

To help verify the story, he also ratted out Whistler, who was less cooperative. That would have been fine and dandy if Whistler had any sort of threshold for pain. Apparently just straps freak him out, because he caved -- sort of. He copped to working with Scofield, and gave up Gretchen (last name: Morgan) without even a getting as much as a wedgie.

Just when Susan B/Gretchen was showing that she has somewhat of a heart... sure, she cut off Sara's head without even blinking, but she did let Linc see LJ for a split second. She also tried to get Sucre involved in her evil doings. And evil she is... and apparently some sort of Black Belt.

The police may have believed that she was just a lackey or a "baby-sitter" -- at least before she blew holes in them. However, Scofield does not fool so easily. He warned her, "I'm coming for you." When? I need to set my TiVo!

T-Bag was still lurking and creepy, but looked like he may have visited the Sona barber. He also wants in on the break. Maybe he knows that's the key to more screen time. This somehow involved a weird deal with Whistler to get rid of Sammy. The love triangle also included a very sweaty Mahone.

Mahone came back and was the sweatiest I've ever seen him -- and he wasn't even in the hot box. That kind of sweating is what Emmys are made of. There was no welcome wagon... only T-Bag. How many people has T-Bag killed in the past two seasons? He doesn't seem like the kind of guy that needs someone else to do his dirty work.

Bellick was back to his old self: a jerk. His attitude got him the chicken foot this time. However, he actually ruled the roost... by cheating. Hey, it's Sona. Can you blame him?

The end saw Scofield and Whistler back on the inside and Lechero's days numbered. He's not the only one. And will Sophia and Linc eventually get it on? Hey -- she's cute and her boyfriend is an obvious scumbag. He's hunky; we shall see. -- Rachel Cericola

"How many people has T-Bag killed in the past two seasons? He doesn't seem like the kind of guy that needs someone else to do his dirty work." - T-Bag usually kills UNSUSPECTING people in private, though. In the ring, there's a good chance he could lose. He's not stupid enough to risk that himself.

Anyway, this was a decent episode. Mahone's borderline-epileptic shaking was awesome. Just awesome.

I hear you... but you'd think he would have snapped a neck or poisoned someone's food or something behind the scenes somewhere. He can be very resourceful. He doesn't need the chicken foot!

Oh man, I think I'm over this show! :P I could barely make it through the whole episode.

Linc and Sophia have to get it on. How long has that guy been in prison? Come on...

I still enjoy the show but not to the extent I used to. I don't rewatch an episode multiple times within the week after its broadcast, and it's just not keeping me on the edge of my seat anymore (Episode 8 being the one exception there - holy crap!).

On a side note, I thought the new character Molly was supposed to be introduced in this episode? What happened there?

In response to above, yes T-Bag is a ruthless killer, but he's also a skilled politician who knows how to work his network. Lechero is the head-honcho of Sona and Sammy is his de-facto right-hand and second-in-command. T-Bag is in good with Lechero, so why risk his wrath by offing Sammy and leaving his prints all over the deed. He has to be crafty and circumventing about the plot or else his cover will be blown...
