Lincoln calls Sara from Miami asking for news about Michael and tells that he is trying to retrieve the Scylla for The Company with Gretchen, T-Bag and Self. They find a lead in the Grafton Club, and Lincoln goes to the place where he abducts the blonde Tia Hayden trying to find the representative of the owner of Scylla. Meanwhile Michael awakes locked in a house in the woods under the surveillance of bodyguards of The Company. The psychiatrist Dr. Roger Knowlton tells him that his mother is alive, working for The Company in the Madagascar Rainforest and he wants to prepare Michael to join The Company and use his skills in global scale working with his mother. Tia lures Lincoln and escapes from him, but he keeps her wallet and finds her address. General Krantz receives Sara that tells that she wants to stay with Michael, but he says no to her. T-Bag and Self go to Tia's house and Self plots against the leadership of Lincoln. They bring pictures and a HDthey found in the house, and when Self argues with Lincoln, Mahone arrives and balances the situation. Gretchen believes that it is an inside job in The Company. Michael sees pictures of his childhood and recalls his family reunion while Dr. Knowlton evaluates him for General Krantz and is pressed to use a quick and nasty process to force Michael to join The Company. Lincoln and Mahone go to the marina to investigate the representative of the owner of Scylla. Sara receives a mysterious message in her phone for a meeting and is abducted near a public phone by Lisa's mean, and Lisa tells her that Michael is 60 miles northeastern downtown. Gretchen finds Scott, the representative of the owner of Scylla, while researching a database, but she lures the rest of the group and meets with Scott that promises ten million dollars for her. T-Bag overhears the conversation of Sara and Lincoln and calls General Krantz that orders Dr. Knowlton to drug Michael for transportation. However Michael reverts the situation and escapes running through the woods. Sara runs over the car of The Company's men and rescues Michael. When the group meets Scott, there is a shootout and Gretchen is hit and left behind. In the end, the surprising owner of Scylla finally appears.

In "The Sunshine State" we see four enemies working together and the childhood recollections of Michael. Lincoln accepts to work with Gretchen, T-Bag and Self and fortunately for him Mahone joins the team. Michael feels depressed with the information that his mother is alive and Sara saves him. The discovery that his mother is alive is quite inconsistent since why should The Company frame the son of one of the most important employees? But the greatest surprise is the identity of the owner of Scylla in the end of the episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not Available.

Note: On 05 July 2009 I saw this episode again.
