In addition to "C-Note" and the other soldiers in the wrong branch uniform, they were also wearing the "desert battle dress uniform" or "cookie dough" pattern body armor. You may have seen it in "Black Hawk Down". It was phased out before the war in Iraq started in 2003. See more »


Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell: [to Susan, the lady who sent him back to prison] I think that's where you're right... 'Cause when you sent me here... in this place... with these people... it brought that old dirty bastard right back home! Like there was a candle... in the window... just waiting for me to walk up them front steps.
Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell: You know, I'm going to get out of here someday. And when I do... don't think I won't remember what your front steps look like, Susan.

A Linc To The Past
1 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode dives deep into the past lives of many of our characters. We see the wrongdoings, the dirty secrets, the desperation, the new unseen details, and links that connect many of them together. It raised the interest level in the story greatly and all of the connections were fascinating. The back-stories and origins of our characters brought out pity, hatred, and astonishment over the unfolded conspiracies. Some of the acting wasn't anything special, but at least Veronica went from stone to wooden acting.Overall a great prequel episode with terrific writing that brought the unknown into the light and revealed facts that made things and situations make more sense.
