Storyline

After the helicopter failed to break out Whistler, Sona's new commander, Panamanian general Zavala, decides to make Michael talk by putting him into the sun-exposed isolation hot-box, promises to help in exchange for the truth, verifies the L.J-situation and is told it's about Whistler, who already realized the tunnel is a no-go without engineer Scofield but denies blatantly to Zavala- and is threatened with torture until he admits to collaborating with Michael, who convinces him next to give up Gretchen Morgen's name. Linc was meanwhile shown L.J., alive, as motivation. Mahone is back in Sona, desperate without his drug. T-bag and his allies are mainly concerned with Lechero's expected succession and another bare-knuckle fight, won by Brad Bellick. Gretchen recruits Sucre as a double spy (or triple for Linc); then Zavala arrests and tortures her. Only Whistler's admission makes her admit L.J.'s kidnapping and leads them there, but manages to kill the general and escape. Michael and ... Written by KGF Vissers

Time to Make a Move
13 November 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sona's Commander General Zavala takes Michel and locks him in a "hot-box" in solitary confinement to be punished by law or by Panama's sun. Meanwhile Agent Lang brings Mahone back to Sona and gives an amulet to him that belonged to her father. Michael decides to tell the truth to General Zavala and he brings Whistler, who is submitted to torture and gives the name of Gretchen Morgan. Meanwhile Lincoln is blindfolded by Gretchen and has one minute of conversation with LJ. T-Bag proposes Mahone to kill Sammy; in return he would supply drugs for free for him. Bellick is challenged by Papa for a fight and he uses acetone to defeat his opponent. Gretchen is arrested and tortured by General Zavala and she gives the location of LJ. However she reverts the situation and kills Zavala. Augusto gives a pistol to Sammy and tells him that it is time to make a move.

"Boxed In" is another good but flawed episode of the Third Season. How could an experienced general travel with a dangerous prisoner in a hostage situation escorted by only one man? This situation is amazingly ridiculous. My vote is eight.
