Storyline

Michael convinces John Abruzzi that he won't talk after a torture session produces no information on the whereabouts of Fibonacci. Abruzzi decides to take another tack by cooperating with Michael in exchange for the info, and as a show of good faith he takes Tea Bag out of the picture. For the next stage of his plan, Michael needs to put his cell-mate Sucre to the test to ensure his trustworthiness. However, Sucre wants to settle down with his fiancée after he gets paroled and can't risk it by helping a prison break, so he requests a transfer. The new cell-mate, a murderer named Haywire, is far too unstable to be trusted. Veronica, meanwhile, starts looking deeper into Lincoln's case after she talks with Leticia, who disappears in the middle of giving her account of what happened. Lincoln's son, as part of the punishment for getting caught buying pot, begins visiting his father in jail. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

There are two random Beatles references in this episode. John Abruzzi remarks that 'Maybe The Beatles were right, maybe "All You Need Is Love" and then in the next scene Michael Scofield tells Sucre, as he is packing to move cells, "We Can Work It Out" - both of which are songs recorded by The Beatles.

Quotes

John Abruzzi: [Cut to the line heading back to the block. Michael gets pushed out of the line and into a side room by Gus. He looks around, worried] Easy now, Fish, don't make this any harder than it needs to be.

Fear Is not Real
23 September 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Michael and Lincoln decide to test the trustworthiness of Sucre, using a fake cell phone, to check whether he will rat Michael or not. John Abbruzzi is pressed by his mobster associate Philly Falzone and changes the approach with Michael, defending him against T-Bag. Meanwhile, Veronica calls off her wedding with Sebastian and seeks out Leticia to reopen Lincoln's case. LJ Burrows is sentenced to visit his father in Fox River once a week as part of his punishment.

In "Cell Test", Michael reaches his intent of approaching to Abbruzzi but loses two toes. Veronica is near to discover the truth, but the poor Leticia is reached by the despicable agent Paul Kellerman. Lincoln's son seem to be connected with his father, and in the end, the only thing that matters is love. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Teste do Celular" ("Cell Test")
