The Secret Service agents have paid a visit to Warden Pope, pressuring him to have Michael transferred away from his brother. After Michael uses a standard legal stalling tactic to delay the transfer, the agents increase the pressure on Pope: either lose Michael's petition and let the transfer go through, or a painful secret from Pope's past will be revealed to his wife. After giving an anguished consideration of the reasons why his past still haunts him, the Warden decides his course of action. Meanwhile, Michael needs another piece of information for his plan to go forward, and he makes an extended trip behind the walls to answer his question: English, Fitz or Percy, which one gets taken out?

Dr. Sara Tancredi: I'm supposed to give you a physical this evening. Let me apologize in advance for the heavy dose of irony we're about to participate in.
Lincoln Burrows: It's all right, just doing your job.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Yeah, well letting the State know that you're healthy enough to execute is not why I went to medical school.

The Exciting Complexity Grows
24 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the corrupt secret service men close in, they dig into the warden's past and manipulate him into betraying Michael by having him moved to another prison. Veronica has a new partner in her investigation and they find out they are being sabotaged and stolen from. Scofield tells Fernando that keeping him in the dark will keep him safe. As one of Scofield's practice runs seems to go horribly wrong we realize that we were also in the dark and it was just a part of his elaborate plan. As Michael is being moved, we think this is the end, but the warden faces his responsibilities and comes through.

This episode was really good with more of the plan being revealed and the complexity proves the genius behind it all. It was thrilling exciting and leaves you wanting more.
