The Escape
8 October 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Michael forces the Warden Pope to transfer Lincoln to the infirmary. Then he gags Pope, ties him to a chair, locks him in a wardrobe and tells his secretary that Pope is calling the Minister of Justice for a long conversation. Michael dresses the jacket and hat of Bellick and activates the fire alarm; his crew reaches the asylum in the confusion. Dr. Sara Tancredi is disturbed and emotionally unbalanced after the revelation of Michael. She wanders in Chicago and decides to return to Fox River and leaves the door of the infirmary open. Nick abducts Veronica and tells her that he is protecting his father; however, he releases her and asks her to travel to Montana. When Nick meets his father in his apartment, one gangster of Abruzzi is waiting for him. The senior management of the Company decides to get rid off Caroline and support another candidate; they ask the assessment of Caroline to Samantha and she tells that the Vice-President is a dangerous person. DB is seriously wounded and he tells Michael where the money is in Utah. Further, he tells that the real amount is US$ 5,000,000.00 and asks Michael to visit his daughter Anna. Haywire surprisingly joins the group in the infirmary.

"Go" is probably the tensest episode of this wonderful First season. I felt sorry for the fate of DB Cooper and Nick, but the condition of Sara is heartbreaking. The betrayal of Michel to Warden Pope is also a sad moment of the show. I foresee that the despicable Vice-President will be eliminated sooner. I am curious with the fate of the scum John Abruzzi, but the revelation of DB will certainly arise the greed of the runaways. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Noite da Fuga" ("The Night of Escaping")
