Prison Break Fodder

Prison Break: Fire/Water

fire-water.jpgMichael just has a lot on his mind, doesn't he? First he has to break Linc out of jail, and now the weight of James Whistler is on his shoulders.

The ballad of James Whistler has started to unfold this week. We find out that he has a pension for rat meat, he looks a bit like Clive Owen (at least in the dim lighting), and he doesn't just live behind the basement wall because he loves the smell of prison toilets on warm summer nights.

See Whistler apparently killed the mayor of Panama City's son. If he so much as peeks outside, someone may literally knock his block off. Whistler isn't sure why the people on the outside want him, and Michael doesn't care. He's got a prison break to plan.

Mahone is not helping either. See, this week, Mahone's really got the shakes -- the kind that an Emmy nomination are made of. He's desperate enough to kill -- again. Mahone finds out from Basketball Jones that killing Whistler could score you a get out of jail free card, and possibly a key to the city of Panama. So he heads down to stinkytown to get the job done.

While this is going down in the pits of Sona, all is not well in the land of Lechero. See, he eats well, sleeps well, and has sex with prostitutes dressed as nuns. The other inmates have had it up to their dirty chins, and they are starting to make a stink (literally and figuratively) about it.

In between the melee-in-the-making, Michael busts in to ask for leniency for Whistler. Since that doesn't work, he gives Basketball Jones a few bucks to get some alcohol. Might as well get drunk, eh? Not exactly.

Michael was making a little bomb to free the water. That scored him some serious brownie points with the inmates as well as Lechero. Not so much with Mahone.

This week was also the return of Sucre. Last season, he seemed left for dead, but he is alive, well and still obtaining firearms. At least he bought the gun this time. The gun is meant for Bellick at Sona. However, there he discovers that his Maricruz is still alive, and living back in Chicago.

What he didn't find out was that Michael, Mahone and T-Bag are also members of Sona's new sewer crew team. All that info was obtained in the 2-second reunion he had with Linc, who offers him a shot at staying in season three's opening credits. He turned down the offer, but only temporarily. After all that, he called Maricruz to tell her he wasn't coming back until he got his life straight -- which should be half-past-never. And was it just me, or did Maricruz not look pregnant at all?

Oh and remember the woman frisking the dead from last week? That's Whistler's woman. She goes to Whistler's safe deposit box, only to find a book on birds. Linc promptly removes it from her purse the second she walks out. Yeah -- that was worth taking the long and probably-un-air-conditioned bus ride for.

What's the deal with the bird book? And will Sucre get himself locked up or join Linc on the outside? All this and more in next week's installment of Prison Break Fodder. Have a good week, everyone! -- Rachel Cericola

I just watched it online and it seems to me Sucre is gonna eat it this season proving himself to Maricruz - and you're right, she doesn't look preggers at all.

Still having a problem with Scofield and the long sleeve shirt. Thank god he lost the hoodie. His circles of sweat stains are inconsistent though :D

Since when does anyone go to access a safety deposit box (I don't care what country you're in) and the bank manager opens the box for you? No private room or anything? Come on.

Thank God someone found Bellick some clothes. I think those are similar to the parachute pants my friends wore in the 80s. Where's the superthin belt?

You know Linc and Susan B. are gonna get it on sometime this season - I think that's the only thing I have to look forward to... :D

Another thing - Sona is a prison for the worst of the worst, right? I am curious to know why that happy little kid wearing the red jersey is in there.

Ha ha... I was thinking of you this week, Connie... when Schofield was all sweaty. He really needs to lose that shirt. But seriously? Does it have something to do with the tattoos? Maybe he doesn't feel like sitting in makeup for hours before the show? Or maybe they lost the stencils to ink him up? Kind of weird...

The basketball kid troubles me. One minute, he's treating Michael like he's Michael Jordan. The next minute, he's all serious.

I was going to mention something about Bellick's clothes. He got those from Lechero? Maybe Lechero was one of MC Hammer's back-up dancers on the outside...

I also agree about the bank. They didn't even ask that woman for ID.

And... Linc and Susan B should get together -- for acting classes! :P

LOL Rachel - are we the only ones posting? :D

Clearly, they are using the shirt to hide the non-tattooed body. Though you would think he would want to roll his sleeves up or something. Half of an arm tattoo - one hour in the make up chair, tops. You'd think that his collar would move around a bit and you'd see patches of tattoo but nope.

Lechero - Can't touch this! Dun-na-na-na, dun-na, dun-na...

LOL about Linc/Susan acting class. Clearly she didn't hired for her talent - acting talent, that is.

Other people jump in from time to time to post... maybe they have other Hammer selections to sing. Ha!

See the show is missing out on some grand tattoo unveiling... serious music and all. Like even in Sona, you'd think if he whipped out all of those tattoos, the other inmates would think he was mental or something.

I see the unveiling going down in that main courtyard... Thunderdome Square.

However, we are already 2 episodes in. The change for a great tattoo debut may have passed.
