Storyline

Taking the first steps in his plan, Michael looks for a bolt in one of the yard bleachers. The seat he chooses, unfortunately, belongs to white supremacist Teabag who takes away the bolt, refusing to return it unless Michael proves himself in an impending race riot. The problem is that his connection for Pugnac, the drug he uses to fake diabetes, is black and obviously won't help him if he fights with the supremacists. The mob boss John Abruzzi, meanwhile, is growing more impatient for the whereabouts of the informant Michael tracked down, and is threatening to take the information by force. On the outside, Veronica receives a videotape proving that Lincoln is guilty of his crime, but then receives word that a witness who could have testified on Lincoln's behalf was murdered before the trial.

Quotes

Inmate: You best speak with respect, fish. Man kidnapped half a dozen boys and girls down in 'bama, raped and killed 'em. Wasn't always in that order either.
Michael Scofield: Does this T-Bag have a name?
Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell: [walks up] That is my real name.
[Michael stands to leave]
Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell: No, no, no please, sit. So you're the one I've been hearing all the rave reviews about. Scofield! Well, one thing's for sure, you just as pretty as advertised. Prettier even.

Faking Diabetes
22 September 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Michael tries to get a bolt in a bleacher but the seat belongs to the dangerous racist Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell that takes the bolt from him. Meanwhile Michael needs the drug Pugnac to fake diabetes to continue going to the infirmary as part of his escaping plan. However, his Afro-American contact sees him trying to retrieve the bolt with T-Bag and denies the drug to Michael. Michael also tries to convince Veronica Donovan that Lincoln is innocent, but when she sees a security tape delivered by the prosecutor showing Lincoln with a gun in the parking area, she questions his innocence.

In this second episode, Michael follows his plan but he has frictions with dangerous inmates and also with Captain Bradley 'Brad' Bellick. Veronica seems to note that there is a conspiracy from the Powers That Be, and probably she will get in trouble. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Acerto de Contas" ("Getting Even")
