Prison Break: Selfless

Selfless.jpgSuck it, General. -- Fernando Sucre

They promised something big, and boy did they deliver. Let's start with a quick recap. Last week, Michael had just come face-to-face with Scylla, only to be greeted by The General and two of his henchmen. Well, this was part of the plan, kids. It allowed the boys to finally score the sixth Scylla card. Yahtzee!

However, the cards weren't actually Scylla. They just unlocked some kind of super hard drive that held Scylla, which looked more like an old internal hard drive. It was sort of anti-climatic, like the moment when you saw the little Martian king in the first "Men in Black." Speaking of Martian king... the boys decided to take The General along for the rest of the ride.

Of course, he's not exactly a party and he never comes alone. So while the group headed back to The General's office, the entire building went into lock-down mode. "Whatever you're waiting for, it isn't coming," he told Michael. That old guy is pure evil. Of course, lines like that just make the veins in Linc's head more prominent. He was ready to snap The General's neck twig-style. Never mention mom and/or dad, get it?

In other hostage news, Self's crisis didn't last too long. While Trishann/Miriam (real name!) berated him, he picked the handcuffs (not too hard when you have the key), shot the henchmen, and Miriam finished off Feng. Oops. We needed that guy... and we weren't even sure why -- yet.

However, that and The General weren't this episode's only hostage situations. Gretchen and T-Bag had created a little something over at GATE. Also, Sara had Lisa. What in the world was going on?

Well, Lisa is not a lover after all -- she's The General's daughter. Hey now! No wonder she hated Gretchen so much. The whole situation really burned The General's biscuit. How dare those guys have a backup plan!

This Company is quite incestuous. We've got daughters and fathers and lovers. Heck, even Linc's dad (who is also Michael's dad? I get lost sometimes) was on the payroll. But does anyone care that Linc's dad was an executioner for The Company? Meh.

A few other notes:

  • Did Trishann/Miriam (when she was alive) ever do any police work while not wearing heels?

  • Ever heard of women and children first, Mr. White?

  • Leaving that Company guy a copy of "All's Well That Ends Well?" Nice touch.

  • When Self gave Michael the "lives will be changed forever speech," did you see Sara? Someone is getting some post-surgery nookie.

All of that paled in comparison to the big climatic ending. Self, the guy we were trusting this entire season was really just in it for the cash. Not sure I like this twist, but hey -- if everyone ended up happy, the season/show would be over, wouldn't it? So now it looks like the hunter will soon be the hunted.

Still, it was quite the stellar episode. Can't say they can keep this up forever, but the writers really revived the show this season. So where do we go from here? Not even The General knows. However, we have Self out on the town with Scylla, T-Bag is handcuffed to Miriam's car, Gretchen is on the loose, and Michael still needs surgery. There's plenty to work with. See you next week (and Happy Thanksgiving!). -- Rachel Cericola
