Storyline

Michael meets with Falzone to discuss the whereabouts of Fibonacci. When he tries to negotiate a deal for himself, Abruzzi gets impatient and warns him that Veronica's life will be forfeit if he doesn't deliver the witness' address right there. After the Vice President learns that her agents have been keeping secrets from her regarding their failure to catch LJ, Veronica or Nick, she brings in an outside specialist to oversee their activities. The head agent warns her that she's made a grave mistake, but she brushes off his concerns. When the tunnel work resumes, the crew finds itself with a new team member, as C-note has managed to figure out what they're up to, and wants in on the plan.

Quotes

Nick Savrinn: I was in the same spot when I was your age. He was in prison and like your dad, he was innocent.
LJ Burrows: What happened? I mean, you know, at the end.
Nick Savrinn: What I hope happens here, he got exonerated.
LJ Burrows: What'd they say he did?
Nick Savrinn: A lot of bad things. They weren't true and we proved that. Every day, every day was a lost cause, but we kept fighting. I mean, what else you gonna do when you love somebody?

Michael is pressed by John Abruzzi to deliver Fibonacci to Falzone; otherwise the new P.I. team will find the hole on the floor. With the dilemma whether a good man should have to die to save his brother, Michael schedules a meeting with Falzone and gives the address of Otto Fibonacci in Canada. C-Note discovers the hole in the storage room and forces Michael to accept him in the P.I. crew. Meanwhile LJ is extremely depressed and Nick has a conversation with him about his father. Vice President Caroline Reynolds brings the dangerous specialist Quinn to supervise the work of Kellerman and Hale, and Kellerman advises her that she committed a serious mistake. Veronica and Nick discover that Ecofield is just a cover, receiving a high budget from the government for alternative fuel research but without any investment, patents or expenses. Further, they listen on television that the Vice-President has a large amount in her funds for her campaign to the White House.

I am impressed how good and tense is the plot of "Prison Break". The creator Paul T. Scheuring succeeded in growing a simple story of an innocent man sent to prison for the murder of the brother of the Vice-President of USA, to a great story of conspiracy. The screenplay makes the viewer anxious for the sequel, and I confess that my best expectations with this series have been superseded. In this episode, the reasons for the death of Terrence Steadman are becoming clearer and Michael's trick was fantastic. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "De Volta ao Plano de Fuga" ("Back to the Escaping Plan")
