Prison Break: Shut Down

shut-down.jpg"We're getting good at pulling off the impossible. Hell, I came back from the dead, right?" - Sarah Tancredi

Whoa -- "Prison Break" has gone all "Bourne Ultimatum" on us. Sure, there's no Matt Damon or decent dialogue (still, I love it), but some of those jumpy camera angles in tonight's episode almost made me lose my popcorn.

Apparently, Don Self is as stupid as most of the other characters that Michael Rapaport plays. He had to wait an entire week to find out that Scylla is not one card, but six. It makes him angry, and Michael even more so. Frankly, I understand that we need six cards to keep the season going, but it would be kind of cool if maybe one section is on a scroll or a Trapper Keeper or something.

However, it's not Donnie's stupidity that gets Michael all twitchy. It's that Self is his puppetmaster. He calls the shots, and for this round, Michael and the musketeers have less than 24 hours to secure the next card -- or head back to the big house.

The next part that ensues is like a scene out of "Sneakers." Sarah even gets into the act as a woman whose fake job interview is a diversion for stealing a security card. This is also where we get the scene from the preview, where Michael and Roland start to run out of air. Michael pulled a fire alarm, and wound up being locked in the server room with Roland. That has to be a painful way to die. Of course, Linc busts in like a badass to save the day. How he could walk into a building that they basically had to break into... all without worry... I don't know. Oh yeah -- maybe it was the axe he was carrying.

So all of that adventure turns out to be for nothing -- sort of. Self finds out that the government is pulling the plug on "Operation Scylla." All turns out well though. Hopefully the whole "we're-going-to-pull-the-plug-and-throw-your-asses-back-in-jail" thing won't be a running theme. It's already a bit old and it's only the second episode.

Two surprises tonight: First of all, Mrs. Mahone is alive and well -- as well as she can be with an on-the-run ex and a deceased son. It turns out that Wyatt is an even bigger monster than we thought. He killed Mahone's boy, but let his ex-wife live.

However, if they hadn't killed Cameron, Linc probably wouldn't want to be Mahone's new buddy. Of course, they could have bonded over their disdain for Roman's "clickety-clack on the keyboard." Either way, the big guy vows to put his Incredible Hulk-style anger towards the guys that did this and smash them good.

Another character that Wyatt has actually killed -- Bruce. He's as dead as disco, with no chance of a revival. There's a shocker.

Bruce took up a lot of airtime with those last breaths -- screen time that could have gone to T-Bag. He didn't have much to play around with tonight. He just moved into Whistler/Cole Pfieffer's place to watch porn and eat pizza. Apparently this is all part of his great "Blood Feud." That's my kind of feud! Another important piece of the puzzle: He has also taken Whistler/Pfieffer's job -- his sales job. Yeah... that mutated, funky, faux hand could probably seal a lot of deals, right? We shall see next week when our one-armed bandit meets up with his old cohorts. Something tells me it's not going to be a happy reunion. -- Rachel Cericola

Big, dumb and beautiful - that's how I love my Lincoln. :o) He doesn't need to talk, just look pretty. LOL how Michael, with all his smarts, can't get out of the server room. Meanwhile, Linc's plan is genius in its simplicity.

I loved Sneakers! One of the better movies River Phoenix was in... I'm surprised they haven't tried to remake that already!

Yeah, not to fond of Self. What a loser.

Has it been determined that GATE is the building that Michael and gang will have to break into?

Not sure if GATE has come up yet in their talks. However, it looks like they find T-Bag on his GATE lunch break next week, so that must be part of the plan.

Badly need your help. There is an evil tendency underlying all our technology - the tendency to do what is reasonable even when it isn't any good.
I am from Emirates and also now'm speaking English, please tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Yahoo! News washington reuters researchers presented a conundrum to new mothers on monday."

Thanks for the help :D, Janine.
