The Power of Christina

Please read only after watching the episode

Michael and Sara are chased by the Company's men; they hitchhike in a truck, but the driver is killed and they are trapped in the trunk. Meanwhile, Lincoln, Mahone, Self and T-Bag investigate the two sophisticated and expensive keys they took from the buyer that shot Gretchen. They find two possible addresses, and while Lincoln and Mahone goes to a mansion, Self and T-Bag heads to a church trying to find Scylla. Lincoln finds a picture from the 70's of his mother Christina and he unravels the secret message with the location where he might meet her. Meanwhile Christina orders an attempt against the life of General Krantz but he escapes with minor injuries only. Lincoln meets his mother and she asks two days for him to remove General Krantz from the direction of the Company and leave Michael and Lincoln free. When Lincoln decides to meet Christina again, his life is in serious jeopardy.

After the long period without "Prison Break", I finally decided to see this series again, and I recapped watching the last episode again to remember how this series abruptly ended a couple of days before Christmas. The plot now is too complicated and I do not know how the author will resolve the story with a decent conclusion since neither General Krantz nor Christina are the "good guys" and it seems that it will be very difficult for Michael and Lincoln to get free in the end. The end of this show gives a glimpse of how much Christina cares for Lincoln. The last chance for a good resolution of "Prison Break" was when Self appeared like a representative of the government promising amnesty for the group. Now it seems to be very difficult to have a good solution due to the huge power of the Company, where everybody seems to be involved. The romance between the selfish and egocentric Michael and the sweet Sara has a total lack of chemistry and it would be better off if Sara had really died in the past. The character of Michael is now wasted, at least for me, and Mahone and Lincoln are saving the show. My vote is eight.
