Big Surprises
2 October 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

John Abruzzi is sent to Chicago by helicopter in a critical state. Michael's team insists that they should escape that night, and Michael delivers a crucifix to the priest to give to Lincoln with a black pill hidden inside and an instruction note to swallow it at 8:10 PM. Lincoln has the symptom of food poisoning and is sent to the infirmary. Meanwhile Veronica decides to expose herself in a manifestation in front of the penitentiary and she succeeds in giving an interview to the reporter of the New Six, explaining that her petitioning for a stay is based in a conspiracy where the innocent Lincoln has been framed. Later she meets Daniel Hale that tells her that Terrence Steadman is alive. When the agent is ready to give evidences and names to her, Paul Kellerman surprises and shoots him. Meanwhile the runaway team has a big problem, since the corroded pipe in their escape route has been replaced by a heavier one, making impossible to reach the infirmary.

"End of the Tunnel" is the episode with big surprises: the revelation that Terrence Steadman is alive and the replacement of the corroded pipe really surprised me. The fate of Danny was predictable since the last episode when he contacted Veronica. The decision of Veronica giving interview to the media gives credibility to the plot, since this should be the most reasonable attitude to be taken. I personally like the flirt of Dr. Sara Tancredi and Michael, giving romanticism to this great story. My vote is nine.
