Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Most Dramatic Episode
3 October 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

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.

"The Rat" is certainly the most dramatic episode of "Prison Break" up to this moment. Dr. Tancredi is really involved with Michael and Lincoln and the claws of the Vice-President Caroline Reynolds are extending, using her power and influence to execute Lincoln. Fox River is full of rats, the long-tailed rodents and the inmate David. The impressive performance of Wade Williams is again awesome. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Rato" ("The Rat")
