Storyline

The execution of Lincoln is delayed for two weeks because Judge Kessler anonymously receives new evidences about the case, while Lincoln glances to his father in the observation room. Judge Kessler orders the exhumation of the remains of Terrance Steadman based on two different records about a removed appendix. Lincoln asks the name of the man in the room to Warden Pope and he tells that he is the journalist William Prall, from the Headline Press. Michael plots another escape plan through the asylum using the blueprint tattooed on his body. He borrows a guard's uniform from Sucre's cousin that works in the laundry to check his plan, but he burns his body on the steam piping; after a medical intervention, Michael finds that the part of the map with the escape route through the asylum is missing on his burnt back.

The Exhumation and the Lost Blueprint
4 October 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The execution of Lincoln is delayed for two weeks because Judge Kessler anonymously receives new evidences about the case while Lincoln glances to his father in the observation room. Judge Kessler orders the exhumation of the remains of Terrance Steadman based on two different records about a removed appendix. Lincoln asks the name of the man in the room to Warden Pope and he tells that he is the journalist William Prall, from the Headline Press. Michael plots another escape plan through the asylum using the blueprint tattooed on his body. He borrows a guard's uniform from Sucre's cousin that works in the laundry to check his plan, but her burns his body on the steam piping; after a medical intervention, Michael finds that the part of the map with the escape route through the asylum is missing on his burnt back.

This episode is only reasonable when compared with the previous ones. Steadman's dental record was changed and the coroner goes nowhere with the exhumation. Michael will have unexpected problems with his new plan. The appearance of the missing father of Lincoln and Michael is the new mystery. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Adiamento" ("The Delay")
