Scylla for a Beloved One, 11 July 2009
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Michael and Lincoln are trapped in the Panda Bay Hotel and seek a means
of escape. Self tries to help them while General Krantz sends a man to
capture the brothers. Meanwhile Christina sells Scylla to the grieving
president of India for ¾ of billion dollars; then she decides to
contact the China government to sell Scylla also for them. However,
Michael, Lincoln, Mahone and Self steal Scylla from Christina and her
henchman in a bank, while she is checking the deposit but In the
runaway, Lincoln is captured by Christina's men. T-Bag abducts Sara and
General Krantz calls Michael to demand Scylla in one hour; immediately
after, Michael receives a phone call from Christina and the bitch
shoots Lincoln's lung to force Michael to return Scylla to her. Michael
has to choose which beloved he should save.
In this full of action episode, the greed Christina manipulates the president of India and puts his government against China. Further, she coldly shoots Lincoln in a painful and lethal way. But the climax is the situation of Michael that has to choose between Sara and Lincoln who deserves to live. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): Not Available

Good old leverage..., 9 May 2009
Author: John Smith from New York
Alright, this probably is one of the best episodes of fourth season,
practically it has everything a 'Prison Break' episode needs and
everything that fans and viewers desire to see. Comparing this single
episode to some episodes of first three seasons, you can see how much
more things can happen in 40 minutes than it happened in 120 minutes in
previous seasons and that's definitely a good thing, putting a bit
faster pace on story, after all this is supposedly the last season of
this whole show.
All the plans of getting Scylla throughout this whole season, complicated plans that required a skilled team of experts in their own field of work, all those plans to get Scylla seem so silly while you watch this episode...simple brainless gun threatening is enough! The ending is top of the notch (on 'Prison Break' ladder at least) and i honestly can't wait for the next episode. To be continued...

Heavy on gun fights, some references to cult films and twisted cliffhanger of the death, 9 May 2009
Author: igoatabase from France
This episode really deserves its title because there were a lot of gun fights. I didn't mind them as action cooled off in the past episodes but I found one scene specially disturbing. In fact I prefer when a conflict is solved without violence. Anyway some of the scenes should remind you of films like The Professional (Léon), Point Break and even The Matrix. In one of them Lincoln dropped a line you won't resist because it was just too funny considering the context and the character he said it to. Also in the past episode the brothers were framed so they had to escape, again, and it was interesting to see if they would continue to work against each other or team up. I let you appreciate the path they chose. For once I was also glad that the story focused on Self because he's part of the team after all. Beside that T-Bag tried his best to convince the General that he's a worthy asset and not a psycho-clown. Last but not least the episode ended with a cliffhanger, again. However last time I thought the writers wouldn't be able to surpass it but believe me, they actually did.
