Paul Kellerman, everyone’s favorite evil secret service agent, came clean and cleared Lincoln at the end of season two. It’s likely that he won’t be around anymore.
Maricruz, the pregnant girlfriend of Michael’s cellmate Fernando Sucre, was put into a box by angry prison guard Brad Bellick, with one day of food and oxygen. Given that everything went crazy in last season’s finale, she seems to be in serious peril.
A Big Problem
Sarah Wayne Callies, who played Sara Tancredi, the nurse Michael fell in love with at Fox River, has apparently had enough of this nonsense. Since their love affair gave the show some weight and is Michael’s only real chance at salvation, her departure may doom the show to go completely off the rails.
Yes, this is a show in crisis, but let’s not let that ruin the fun. Let’s check in with the characters lucky enough to be alive.
Michael, having taken the blame for Kim’s shooting, was tossed into the worst prison that the producers of the show could imagine, the Panamanian hell hole Sona.
Lincoln is free and clear, but he’s now trying to get Michael out of the stir.
Mahone, Bellick, and everyone’s favorite psychopathic child molester Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell are all coincidentally in Sona with Michael.
Confused, sure you are, just enjoy the mayhem and violence and let it pass.
Episode 1: "Orientación"
Our favorite heartwarming show opens with the romantic sight of two shirtless men mired in mud and rain, fighting each other to the death. Yes, that’s how they solve their disputes here in Sona. Sona is run by a man named Luchero, who seems to think he is running some sort of brave new world. Sona apparently has been abandoned by the Panamanian powers that be. What happens in Sona stays in Sona. The law just patrols the perimeter, shooting anyone who tries to escape, monitoring visitors, and collecting dead bodies.
While T-Bag, Mahone, and Michael are treated with about as much respect as you could hope for in a place like this, Brad Bellick is in serious trouble. He’s been beaten, likely raped, he’s lost his clothes and walks around in a diaper, no one will give him any food, and he’s forced to do sewage duty. Sucks to be Bellick. Apparently word got around that he was once a prison guard.
