The Chaos Continues
24 February 2015 | by RbDerajSee all my reviews

As the turmoil is still not resolved, Michael goes off by himself to save Dr. Sara Tancredi. While he is away Abruzzi and Sucre drill the final holes in the wall which breaks away into a man sized gap. The Governor steps in with state military personnel to finish the job and get the prison back under control. The intensity and excitement of this episode was very high with lives at risk of the doctor and Lincoln (when a hit was attempted to be carried out on him). Once again there were many unforeseen problems but in the end the goal of drilling through the wall was accomplished. Great episode to finish the last cliffhanger.
