Despite his headaches, Scofield successfully breaks in. The General rushes a security team down, and thus provides the last missing element: his sixth card! He's still confident to bribe the team or just keep them locked in, but Sara provides leverage: Lisa, his daughter. Bagwell and Gretchen are found out and shoot their way out. Scylla is delivered to Self, who promises the boys their freedom in half an hour, but doesn't deliver, and... worse. Written by KGF Vissers

The US soldiers/guardsmen that confront the Company agents at the airport are wearing the DCU (Desert Camouflage Uniform) and full battle kit. There is no reason that a serviceman guarding an airport in Los Angeles would be in battle gear or wearing fatigues designed for a desert environment. See more »

All's Well That Ends Well

Please read only after watching the episode.

Gretchen and T-Bag are armed with MP-5 waiting for Michael and his group in the Gate's office. Meanwhile General Krantz arrives in the Scylla room with two bodyguards but Sucre, Lincoln and Mahone revert the situation. Michael tells Krantz that there was a missing piece in the puzzle and he has just brought for him. Michael activates Scylla with Krantz's card and uses the other five to get Scylla and the surprised Krantz questions how Michael got the other five cards. Self and Trishanne also revert the situation and they kill Feng and his men. Mr. White comes to T-Bag's office and sees the weapons below the desk; however Gretchen notes his reaction and confines the staffs and clerks in Mr. White's office. Michael asks Krantz to activate the elevator and they pass through The Company and bring the general to his office. He calls Sara while the building is locked down and Krantz's office is under siege of the armed Company's agents. Meanwhile Trishanne sees the situation in the Gate's office while Self meets with Herb that asks him to call Senator Dallow. Krantz tries to bride the group, but Michael replies that all he wants is to burn The Company to ground and see Krantz in prison. When Lisa is having lunch in the Eagles and Angels, the waiter accidentally drops grease on her skirt. She goes to the toilet where Sara abducts her with a pistol and forces Lisa to call her father, General Krantz, and she becomes the leverage of Michael and his group. Michael lists everybody that was killed for General Krantz to convince him that Sara could kill his daughter. Trishanne releases the employees but the coward Mr. White runs and Gretchen shoots and kills him. There is a shootout in the office, but Gretchen and T-Bag escape. She asks him to dump the MP-5s in the garbage container and then she draws a pistol to kill T-Bag; however Trishanne arrives and saves T-Bag. When she arrests T-Bag, she identifies herself as FBI Agent Miriam Holtz. General Krantz threatens Michael and the group and he tells that the Michael and Lincoln's father was not a data analyst but an executioner of The Company. They leave The Company in an armored truck, Michael calls Self and they head to the meeting point, chased by many cars. When they arrive in the airport, they are followed by The Company's agents but Michael lures the agents that are arrested by the security of the airport. Meanwhile the bodyguards break in the toilet and find Liza tied on a flush toilet; she is released and calls Krantz. Sucre and Mahone keep the Scylla and they deliver the aimed object to Self. The agent gives an envelope to Michael with the documents necessary to clear their records and he asks the group to wait for Agent Schmidt that would be coming with vans and an ambulance. After one hour, Michael calls Self and get no answer. When Michael opens the envelope, there are only blank sheets. Meanwhile Self shoots Miriam on the chest and T-Bag witnesses the crime.

"Selfless" is the best episode of the Fourth Season of "Prison Break" so far. The engaging story has many twists and revelations and a surprising betrayal. My guess in the last episode was right, with Michael bringing General Krantz to the Scylla room to get the sixth card. The relationship between Krantz and Liza was a great surprise for me. But the betrayal of Self was totally unexpected for me. I regret the fate of Trishanne, a.k.a. Miriam Holtz, since I liked her character. General Krantz losing his arrogance and self-confidence is another great moment of this show. The book Michael left in his backpack ("All's Well That Ends Well") is a play by William Shakespeare that comes from the proverb "All's well that ends well", which means that problems do not matter so long as the outcome is good. My vote is ten.
