Not to be left out, we get some more of T-Bag's mean streak. When we last saw him, he was entering a veterinarian hospital with his severed hand in a cooler. Using his abundant charm, he gets the vet to reattach his hand. Afterwards, the viciousness comes out, as he cannot allow the vet to leave. As we leave him, he has the vet stripped and strapped to a table and about to do something unspeakable. This is a great character, I only wish we could get some more screen time from him.
Back to Michael and Linc – their narrow escape may be shortlived, as Linc gets hit in the leg and is bleeding profusely, and may not be able to go on. We leave these two as they try to figure out an escape, and the law is closing in behind them. This is a trying time for Scofield, as he knows this breakout was not in their best interests, but it is hard to say no to your brother, especially when it concerns his son.
The show may be called Prison Break, but they are most definitely not in a prison. Still, the drama is just as compelling, This season has started out strong, and I can only hope they keep it up. The previews for next week promise more with Sucre, and the return of Dr. Sara Tancredi as she is arrested for her involvement in the escape.
This series is deceptive in its depth. It carries a lot of story that takes on a personal nature, despite the more epic backdrop of political intrigue. It is a good example of a show that builds its characters and still has a plot involving more than meets the eye without feeling like it is trying to do too much. Basically, if you aren't watching, why not? Give it a try, you may be surprised by what you find.
