Extremely Intense
9 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The time comes for the conspirators to finally go ahead with their plan. It is what this entire first season has been building up to; the escape. Another member is added as one falls, most everything goes according to plan except at the end and we are once again left at a cliff hanger, literally hanging in suspense. The action was incredibly gripping, tense, and had viewers on edge the whole time. It was probably the most exciting episode thus far. With a few new introduced plot twists involving Veronica and Nick, the tension that arises when Charles Westmoreland revels how much cash he actually has hidden, and with our convicts at the brink of freedom, the desire to see the next episode is unbearable.
