Episode cast overview, first billed only:

Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell (credit only)
Danny McCarthy ...


Michael is able to obtain some of the supplies he needs: a pair of chemicals that when combined produce a powerful corrosive. What he lacks, however, is a cell-mate he can trust to let him do his work. Haywire has become obsessed with Michael's tattoos and comes dangerously close to realizing their meaning, so Michael uses this to his advantage to provoke a confrontation and get his room-mate removed. At the same time, Sucre learns that his rival, Hector, has been feeding a line to Maricruz to get her away from her fiancé and into his bed. Sucre realizes that he needs to get back with Michael so he can get out as quickly as possible before he loses her forever. Veronica enlists the help of a specialist in death-penalty cases who agrees to re-examine Lincoln's case, but even he isn't hopeful. Meanwhile, the people who want to see Lincoln executed as quickly as possible do some snooping around Veronica's home and learn of the connection between Lincoln and Michael.

Consistently Good Quality
24 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode Veronica digs deeper into the events surrounding Lincoln's conviction and Michael tries to make more headway on his plan. The introduction to a crazy guy as Michael's new cell mate that can see through his plan and may risk the uncovering of his maze tattoo was a good twist. The man's skills as an actor were good he was a very convincing mentally deranged man. The actress who plays Veronica on the other hand is really annoying with her nasily voice, unchanging facial expressions, and poor acting skills. The plot is getting more complicated and as more problems arise the more interesting it gets. I'd say the show has consistently good quality so far, but nothing that leaves you in awe.
