With the unexpected fail of Michael's plan, the five frustrated inmates return to the storage room. Michael begs Sara to talk with Veronica and Nick first to see the evidences and to ask for clemency to her father. Meanwhile Nick and Veronica appeal in court of Judge Kessler and request an exhumation of Steadman remains. Michael learns that if something goes wrong with the electric chair, the execution is delayed. He uses a rat to short-circuit the electric installation, but David overhears the conversation and rats Michael's talk to Captain Bellick. Sara stays with Lincoln in his cell; later Michael and Veronica have a last meeting with him and he talks with his son LJ by phone. When Lincoln is walking to the electric chair, the governor calls to say that he had reviewed the process and denied the request of clemency. Written by

Did You Know?
Michael says in the intro of an earlier episode that authorities will put 15000 Volts in his brother's body for a crime he did not commit unless they both escape, but in "The Rat" C.O. Geary warns C.O. Bellick to be careful while opening the electric chair's fuse box because there is "2000 V inside". See more
