Faking Diabetes

7/10
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
22 September 2008

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")

All you gotta do is take this little pocket right here...

Author: tsylar from United Kingdom
18 August 2007

Freshly incarcerated in Fox River, Michael is soon beginning work on his escape plan by attempting to acquire the first integral instrument for it, before hitting his first integral problem: Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell.

Serving life imprisonment without ever been eligible for parole, Theodore Bagwell is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous inmates in Fox River who prays on younger men as sexual victims and makes Michael one of his targets by offering him his 'pocket' - in exchange for protection from other inmates. On top of this, escalating racial tensions in the prison, Abruzzi's impatience for the location of Fibonacci and Dr. Tancredi's queries about whether or not Michael does actually have diabetes all make sure Michael is going to be in for one hell of a ride every episode: even if he can find the time to continue with the escape plan!

But Robert Knepper is the real star of this episode and plays the part wonderfully, by opting to portray the character from a more charming, and even at times, comedic perspective rather than showing T-Bag's more sadistic and cruel nature all the time. He also successfully manages to bring in his own (what Knepper describes as) 'animalistic' qualities to the role to show T-Bag's more menacing side. Overall, he does a terrific job in making what should be a vile, hateful creature into a real fan-favourite who returns in a regular role to the series.

The Intensity Level Rises

7/10
Author: RbDeraj from United States
23 February 2015

The intensity level of this episode went way up from the pilot episode. Michael Scofield is not as invincible as he thought and his plans could easily be messed up by the one factor that he had not considered. The other people in the prison. Prisoners can turn on you at any minute, and it is a very dangerous unpredictable place. The situations seemed more real and believable as it was all more daunting and threatening. I am not sure how they are going to stretch the story on for 79 more episodes, but I am now more interested to find out. The ending was a perfect cliffhanger and left you wanting more which is just what a weekly show needs. Good episode.
