Michael is finally able to connect with Sara from the clues he left her in the paper swans. Unfortunately, Agent Mahone has enough of a clue to track them down and Michael has figured out that Mahone is trying to kill them, not capture them.
Lincoln and his son LJ are saved from the cops by a group of people in a mysterious black van who turn out to be people working with his father. Lincoln's father believes he has evidence that will exonerate both Lincoln and Michael. Unfortunately, no organization is mole-proof.
Sucre is still trying to get a hold of Maria Cruz, to no avail. The one chance he has of talking to her on the phone is taken away when the cops park next to the pay phone where he is waiting.
Bellick and Geary find the key to the locker and have to get it from T-Bag in a most vile and disgusting way. They leave him chained by his bad hand to a radiator and call the cops on him as they make their way to the money.
There, did that seem scattershot enough for you? I did it on purpose because that was the way the episode played out for me. It was BAM — here's one thing!

You know they are piling on the tense drama because, according to IMdb, there are only two more episodes listed. That would give us a 12-episode season and last season was 17 episodes.
