Danny McCarthy ...


John Abruzzi's boss has grown impatient over the non-appearance of the witness Fibonacci, and has withdrawn financial support from his jailed capo. This, in turn, has led Bellick to remove Abruzzi from work duty, since the guard's monthly payment from Falzone has stopped coming. Without work duty, no more progress can be made on the escape, and the next group to enter the storage room is certain to find the gaping hole in the floor. On the outside, the Secret Service agents are closing in on LJ through his telephone signal, and he inadvertently directs them toward the cabin that Veronica and Nick are hiding in. To save LJ, Lincoln needs to break out. But for that to happen, Michael must sacrifice Fibonacci, an innocent witness, to a ruthless mafia boss. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Did You Know?


We see LJ's phone early on in the episode, and the battery display says that the battery is half empty. However, later on in the episode when the two Secret Service Agents find it, the battery is displayed as full; how could LJ recharge his phone if he's on the run? See more »


Captain Brad Bellick: [to Sucre] Hey, what do you think this is, siesta? See that? See my face up there? Any idea how it got there? Work ethic. Those two words mean anything in your country? You're on P.I., so quit slow-working me.

The New Boss
29 September 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The corrupt Captain Bellick complains with John Abruzzi that his "perquisite" has not been deposit in his bank account. Abruzzi discovers that Philly Falzone, upset for not receiving news about Fibonacci, has stolen all the money that belongs also to him from his bank account using a letter of attorney and he loses his privileges in prison. Lincoln is mad with the situation of LJ, trying to contact him. Seth unsuccessfully asks for help to Michael and without any hope, he commits suicide. Dr. Sara Tancredi discovers that Michael was under psychological treatment and his shrink tells her that he is a creative genius with no sense of self-worth and also a rescuer. LJ succeeds in contacting Veronica and Nick, but his cell phone is bugged. Veronica lures the secret service agents asking Michael to travel to Lake Mercer, near Iowa, while he actually goes to New Glarus.

In this great episode, the personality of Michael is disclosed a little further with the investigation of Sara, and he feels uncomfortable with the suicide of Seth. The teenager LJ finally gets the necessary help and Veronica and Nick find that many people wanted Steadman dead. In prison, the escape plan moves backwards with Abruzzi losing his P.I. privileges and his partners stopping the services in the storage room. My vote is nine.
