Did You Know?


Michael has a gray car ready in a parking lot which he uses to fake his and his brother's death. There, he has chunks of pig meat he uses to fake B negative blood, his and Linc's blood type. But, the car has been in the parking lot where Michael had left it before he went to prison, that was at least a month before. In one month, the pig meat would have rotted in the car. See more »


Nika Volek: Michael, you should not have come here. The police have been here asking questions.
Michael Scofield: We didn't have a choice.
Nika Volek: Listen, you know I'm thankful for the help with the green card, but I just don't want to get involved ...
Michael Scofield: I know, I know. It wasn't part of our deal! I know, I know!
Michael Scofield: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. There was nowhere else to go.
Nika Volek: When I saw you on the news I was worried. I just hoped you'd crossed the border by now.
Michael Scofield: So did I.

Someone's Going Down
7 September 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

That phrase surmises it all up. Because in this Prison Break episode, we start by seeing a exploded car on a ditch and agent Mahone is looking at it. But then, fade out and a title appears saying "12 hours earlier". During those 12 hours earlier, Michael and Lincoln show up at Nika's house to heal Lincoln's leg. Michael sets out to get his car back only to fine that it has been taken to a car deposit. By the pieces of glass on the street, Michael realizes that a window of the car was broken. In the car there was everything they needed to disappear, but now a bag that was on the back seat has fallen into the hands of Mahone, who finds a passport with Michael's face on it but only with some other name. Bellick goes to a store where he runs into Geary, who was working there after being fired. They start fighting but they ended up having a drink together. Bellick says he wants to get the reward they are offering for the FOX RIVER EIGHT. They agreed to work together in order to find them. For that, Bellick uses Manche who, quoting T-Bag, "sang like Johnny Cash". Meanwhile, C-Note makes a phone call to his wife from a payed phone. The FBI hears the conversation and learn that C-Note is asking his wife to meet him within a week. Also, Sucre steals a car after he found out that Maricruz is getting married with Hector. The police is on him, but he manages to escape by jumping on a train heading to New York. When he got there, a friend of him tells that Maricruz's wedding is taking place in Vegas, so Sucre takes his friend's motorcycle and goes to Vegas. Getting near to the end of this episode, Michael comes up with a plan to get Mahone off their back, so he makes a phone call on purpose so that Mahone will track it. Once they tracked the call, they tracked where they are and where they're going. They start persecuting them, but Michael and Liconln stop at the middle of a bridge, take some bagged flesh and put it on the car and push it over the bridge. The car explodes and they run uphill. They meet with Nika again, who offers her car to them so that they can go to Mexice. Blindly, they start their journey thinking that the Feds will pay attention on the other guys, but they had absolutely no idea that Bellick and Geary are right behind them, which becomes the start of a new persecution. So, maybe in the next to episode, someone's is gonna go down and who that might be, we don't know. It could be C-Note or Sucre. But wait, we still got T-Bag, Tweener and Abruzzi. The most likely to go down is C-Note, because by the end of the episode, his wife helps the feds to haunt him.
