13 September 2008 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This Epi rocked....

the intensity is huge...we feel the rage in Micheal for losing Sara !!! but like before Micheal again has himself in a impossible situation where in order for him to survive he has to help Whistler and Gretchan ...but there is a huge twist there!!!.... unlike before Micheal has some high-powered people HELPING Micheal for once..

Enjoy it .. but there is one thing thats bugging me.... "can the show survive the name 'Prison break'?..i mean c'mon He has already broken out of 2 Prisons....if they need this to work...they might as well make him a alleged contractor for busting convicts out? HeHe!!!!! just say'in!!!"
