There's no more fitting place than a network called Fox for someone as slyas Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) to reside. After all, who in all of TVland can boast a feat like successfully orchestrating not only his escape, butalso the escape of over a handful of prisoners as well?
Only in fiction can such a crazy attempt work, and so well. The mad geniusplot does get brought down to reality when the part about Schofield and histeam flying off into the sunset doesn't exactly go as planned.
In this first outstanding Season Two episode of Prison Break,the escapees are really desperate, and Scofield, as always, is keeping hiscool. It's not as easy for T-Bag (Robert Knepper) to keep his cool, him havinglost his arm and all. Lots of Prison Break fans were probably expectinga harsher punishment for a character who's just so incredibly creepy andmalicious through and through.
T-Bag's got life in him yet, and a special place in his twisted heart forcrime boss Abruzzi (Peter Stormare). T-Bag goes off on his own way, and thefive remaining are in deeper shit than he is.
Enter a familiar face: William Fichtner, one of the survivors of the sadlybotched Invasion. Now let's play a round of "Oh, I know thatguy!" If you've ever seen this creepy character actor before, you'veprobably caught a movie or two.
If you have Fichtner's all too familiar voice ringing in your ear,you've probably played a couple of Grand Theft Auto video games oryou've watched Brangelina's Mr. and Mrs Smith. He's been "thatguy" for a while, and while he failed to become a household name through Invasion,he makes a big impression as the quick-witted FBI agent out to catch Scofield& Pals.
Fichtner's FBI man is the brains while guard Bellick (Wade Williams) is almostall brawn. Bellick gets to play outside now, but who can expect this man tocatch anyone? Remember all the times in season one when he almost hadSchofield? Michael has left a lot of breadcrumbs, but this is a man who hasbeen talking in riddles for many an episode. Any clues to what move he makesnext won't be found that easily.
