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

Warden Henry Pope: Why didn't you include any names?
Lincoln Burrows: Why would I want anyone to watch me die?
Warden Henry Pope: I've seen it happen a number of ways. Some people want to go it alone, others have grandiose statements that they want to make, but most want some member of their family there before they leave this world.
Lincoln Burrows: I'll go it alone.
Warden Henry Pope: Son. In my opinion, all inmates who have made that choice have deeply regretted it in their final minutes. I'll uh, leave it blank for now. You have less than four weeks now. You should give it some ...

The Plot Thickens
23 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael's plan is getting harder to pull off as things are not quite going his way. While he does not talk to Abruzzi and loses a few toes for it, he is rewarded for his persistence as Abruzzi makes a deal with him. Meanwhile Veronica is going down the rabbit hole as she starts to investigate details of Lincoln's set up. We learn just how dangerous, immoral, and ruthless the conspirators are and what they are capable of doing. A touching scene is included with Lincoln repairing his relationship with his son as his final days are coming to an end. This episode had some unexpected turns and a few explanations that I had been looking for in the past. It was exciting like the past episode and the actors were all on top of their game. As far as cons go there were a few small details that seemed inaccurate and Veronica was kind of annoying, but with that being said it was still a good watch.
