The Walls Come Crashing Down
4 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nothing goes right in this episode. After the crash Kellerman tries to kill Lincoln but is saved by his father, but the cops are soon on their tail. Veronica makes some headway by finding the connections to the hideout in Montana. Michael tries to get the last thing between him and freedom; a key from Dr. Tancredi. Sara though catches on to his plot. The Rat goes back to Bellick and reveals the entire escape plan in hope of protection.

This episode was one door closing after the other with nothing going according to plan. I don't know how they will manage to get past all of these setbacks and even escape at all with Bellick finding the hole at the end. Good episode full of the unexpected.
