When Lechero, T-Bag and Bellick run to the fence, they are captured by the guards. However, this was Michael's real plan - to wait for the exact moment to leave the hideout with Whistler, Mahone and McGrady. When Bellick shows the guards tunnel, the quartet discreetly breaks-out Sona, meeting up with Lincoln on the beach. Panicked, Whistler notes that he lost the book with the coordinates. They use breathing apparatuses and swim underwater to a buoy, waiting for Sucre, who will not arrive. Cuffed to a file drawer in Sona, Sucre isn't going anywhere. But McGrady's father finds the boat moored in the marina and rescues the escapees. After thanking Michael for saving his life, McGrady leaves with his father. Lincoln and the fugitives are chased by Gretchen's men. However finding a GPS in Whistler's watch, they lure the gangsters in a shootout later. When Sucre is released in Sona, T-Bag sees him and discloses his identity to the guards. Meanwhile, Mahone says goodbye and Whistler escapes... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Fast moving and exciting
12 February 2008 | by benedictxvi_popeSee all my reviews

This was one of the best Prison Break episodes for a while, probably the best so far in Season 3. It was fast moving, exciting, and ended with a classic Prison Break cliff-hanger at the end. With lots of action and events all packed into one episode, it did not disappoint.

From a critical perspective, there were some slightly strange, rather intangible moments, but it does remain to be a show which appeals to its viewers by being believable, unlike shows like Lost and Heroes.

This season has finally kicked into action and everyone will be disappointed after the next episode when there will be another long period of time before the next offering of the great TV series!
