Thoughts and Motivations
8 October 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Bellick finds the hole in the storage room, DB hits him with a shovel and drops him in the hole, but is stabbed in the stomach. The P.I. team decides that they need to break-out that night, but the key of the infirmary is still an issue. Meanwhile Veronica discloses that many calls of Quinn's cellular where made from a US$ 2,000,000.00 real estate in Blackfoot, Montana, and she decides to travel to the place to investigate. However, Nick receives a call from Abruzzi and threatens Veronica with a gun. Vice President Caroline Reynolds is pressed by her powerful associates to convince President Richard Mills to refuse the law of alternative energy, but Richards is no longer supporting the corrupt Caroline. Michael decides to ask for help to Dr. Sara Tancredi for his escaping; she becomes disappointed and depressed, and decides to go to a bar in Chicago. When she is near to drink again, she sees that her father will be the Vice in the campaign of Caroline to the White House and she meets him to ask if he read Lincoln's process. Michael in despair uses an unexpected escape plan-B.

I am impressed how good "Prison Break" is. In "Tonight", the change of plan for breaking-out from Fox River is certainly the greatest twist. I felt very sorry for the disappointment of Sara with Michael and also for Warden Pope, who is a good man, and a great sympathy for the thoughts and motivations of C-Note, DB and Sucre for escaping; however, Abruzzi, T-Bag and the rat Tweener deserve to stay forever in Fox River. My greatest disappointment however is with the traitor Nick. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Segunda Fuga" ("The Second Escape")
