Michael is once again imprisoned, but now in SONA (Panama), together with T-Bag, Mahone and Bellick. The prison is solely ruled by inmates, whose local prison-lord Lechero feels threatened by Scofield's 'fame'. Lincoln tries legal means to get Michael transferred, and gets a call from a relative. Both receive the same message, through different canals, presumably from Bill Kim's organization. Written by Brian Tjoe-Nij

Did You Know?


[calling out to the other prisoners before the fight]
Lechero: We have a disagreement between two dogs. A drug addict and a thief. I condone neither. And I wash my hands of both of them. But they have an issue. And we have rules. And without rules we are nothing but savages. Therefore, the proper respect for the rules. This fight is engaged with only one rule; no weapons. Only man versus man, without augmentation or handicap. I'm done talking!

Hell on Earth
2 November 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lincoln goes to the consulate trying to prove that Michael is innocent and killed a hit-man in self-defense; he discovers that in Sona, the prisoners are left by themselves and without any guard after a violent riot. Further, the most violent criminals in Panama are imprisoned there and the prison is considered one way stream – who goes in does not goes out. However, Michael would be transferred to another facility on the next day waiting for trial. Michael finds that Mahone, a starved Bellick and T-Bag are also arrested in the spot, and Mahone proposes a non-accepted association to breakout Sona. Lincoln visits Michael and tells him that Sara is missing; Michael asks his brother to seek-out her. Michael is framed by the lord Lechero and accused of stealing drugs from another prisoner; in accordance with the rules in Sona, they must fight without weapon and only one man goes out of the ring alive. Mahone saves Michael's life in the end. Lincoln receives a phone call from LJ scheduling a meeting in a restaurant in Panama City with Sara; when Lincoln arrives, a mysterious stranger gives a cell phone for him. On the next morning, Lincoln tells Michael that the Company has kidnapped Sara and LJ and they want him to breakout Sona with the prisoner James Whistler in the maximum of one week.

The first episode of the Third Season shows Michael in a prison which is actually Hell on Earth, with the most dangerous criminal in the place. The arrogant scum Bellick is totally humiliated and T-Bag is associating to the prison-lord, using his seductive approach to become close to power. The money is gone, and Sara and LJ are missing. The engaging how introduces Lechero and a gorgeous and mysterious woman. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Orientação" ("Orientation")
