Goofs

The Vice-President discusses casting a tie-breaking vote in the Senate. While the VP does have that Constitutional authority, the vote had taken place well before the discussion. Tie votes are not held in abeyance awaiting the VP. If she wasn't on the Senate floor when the vote was taken, she would not be able to cast a vote after the fact. The tie would mean the bill was defeated and legislative action on it was over. See more »

Psychological Breakdown
6 October 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Sara comes to Warden Pope to show the piece of fabric of uniform that she found in Michael's burnt believing he was tortured by a guard. Pope presses Michael, and without any answer, he sends him to the solitary confinement. Captain Rednick includes the rat David in the P.I. team trying to discover what they are plotting; the group is informed that on the next day, a team of specialist will put the carpet on the floor and they decide that Sucre is the only one capable to escape during the night to close the hole. Meanwhile in the US Secret Service Field Office in Chicago, Kellerman discovers that Lincoln's father belonged to the agency. Nick, Veronica and LJ return to Nick's cottage to get Quinn's cellular, and LJ finds that Quinn wrote "Kellerman o Kravecki" in the well, but he does not disclose the information to Veronica and Nick. LJ finds the address of Owen Kravecki and goes to his house to kill him. Michael has a psychological breakdown in the confinement and is sent to the asylum where he meets Haywire.

In "J-Cat", the smart Michael plots a mean to reach Haywire simulating a psychological breakdown. Sucre is also bright creating an alibi in case he is discovered by the guards. I was disappointed with LJ attitude, hiding key information from Veronica and Nick. The despicable David deserves his fate in the end. The Machiavellian Vice President shows no scrupulous in a perfect characterization of most politicians of the world. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Surto" ("Breakdown")
