T-Bag is in love for Susan, but when she finds that he is a pedophile killer, she denounces him to the police.

In "Brother's Keeper", there is a great development of characters: it is disclosed though flashbacks the previous lives of Michael, Lincoln, Veronica, Sara, C-Note, Fernando and T-Bag and their connection before they go to Fox River and the conspiracy of the Vice-President and the Secret Service. The meaning of the crane origami used by Michael is explaining as Familial Obligation. The revelation that Dr. Sara Tancredi was an addicted junkie is the great surprise of this episode. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Guardião do Irmão" ("The Brother's Keeper")
