Prison Break Recap: Episode 204

September 12, 2006 by  


Better late than never, right? I really did have every intention of getting this Prison Break recap up a lot earlier. But those damn Office Season 2 DVDs took over my life and I just couldn’t put them away…seriously, my eyes are starting to burn. But more on that Thursday.

I thought last night’s Prison Break was a strong ep. Lost of emotion, and I appreciated the somewhat concentrated storylines. This recap isn’t the bext because I was tired last night when I wrote it, and I’m still exhausted now. Please forgive me if there are typos…I promist to check in the morning when my eyesight returns.

Bellick and Roy catch up with Michael, Linc and Nika, and manage to run them off the road and into a tree. With guns drawn, Bellick and Roy confront the convicts, but hauling them into the Feds isn’t the priority here. Just like everyone else in the world, they know about the $5M Westmoreland has stashed in Utah, and they want Michael to lead them to it.

As Roy heads back into town to deal with a flat tire, Bellick locks up the boys and Le Femme Nika. Doing her best impression of the Evil Dr. Will from Big Brother Nika seems to be playing the boys against eachother. She’s telling Michael and Linc that she is trying to work her magic with Bellick, and meanwhile she is telling Bellick that she deciveing Michael and Linc to get her share of the $5M. So what side is she really on? Well from the lap dance she is giving Bellick it seems that she’s all about him, but then again, can a girl really go against Michael Scofield? Nah. The little Russian uses what she’s got to get a knife away from Bellick and into the hands of Linc. Before we know it, the tables have turned and Roy and Bellick are the ones tied up.

Bellick’s baiting Nikki about staying with Michael and says he is using her just like the Dr. And look what happened to her, she almost dies from an overdose and now faces 30 year in prison. This is the first Michael has heard of Sara’s issues, and refusese to believe Bellick. Knowing he hit a nerve, Bellick keeps pushing and pushing until Michael reaches his boiling point and kicks Bellick in the head. If you think about it, this is a rare viloent outburst from Michael, the likes of which we haven’t yet seen.

T-Bag is in some serious pain, or else he would be if he could actually feel his hand. I’m not a Dr but I think it’s called phantom pain, right? He manages to get out of a predictament with some local cops when he passes himself off as a homeless Iraqi war vetran. Wanting to “support the troops” a man and his teenage daughter stop to offer T-Bag a ride. Uh oh….not a good idea. This is why picking up a hitchiker is ALWAYS a bad idea. While stopped at a motel, T-Bag wastes no time in continuing his scumbag life and hits on the young girl. She runs off (thank god) and tells her father. The two men have a confrontation, and all we know is that T-Bag rode away in the guy’s car. So, yeah, I’m pretty sure that is 2 murders for T-Bag since he escaped Fox River…last week.

Tweener is still on his co-ed road trip. He’s a little too jumpy and obvious if you ask me. It appears that his roadmate is starting to catch on to his shadiness. We keep seeing her on the phone talking to someone and hanging up right before Tweener gets too close. She mentions that they are in a hotel, but we still don’t know who she is talking to?

All indications are that she’s talking to the Feds since Mahone and his peeps are suddenly all gung ho about heading to a certain motel. Is it Tweener’s time to head back to Fox River? More on his later, let’s check in with another con….John Abruzzi.

Abruzzi proves that he cleans up good. He’s back in charge and quickly reunited with his family. John’s wife isn’t too happy when he lets it be known that his first priority is to go after Fibonacci. But he insists he must go. Abruzzi tracks down Fibonacci to a motel outside of DC. Ready to off the rat once and for all, John quietly approaches the shower that is running in Fibonacci’s motel room. But wait…what’s that commotion outside. Oh dang, it’s Mahone. Looks like it wasn’t Tweener’s motel he was tracking down after all. Having John cornered, Mahone tells him that he’s either going back to Fox River today or the morgue…it’s his choice. Dude, take Fox River – you rule the roost in there. As it goes, Abruzzi wasn’t kidding when he said he wasn’t ever going to go back to Prison. He leaves the motel room, but refuses to drop his weapon. As he moves forward toward the FBI, the surrouding cops fill his chest and head with bullets. Salud Abruzzi.

Tequila Tancredi is still going to her meetings. Kellerman is still pretending to be a recovering addict. They two bond over blueberry pie and crack stories – just how true love should begin. Smiles are shared and walls are falling until Tequila gets a phone call from Michael.

Still reeling from his conversation with Bellick, an emotional and tearful Michael calls Sara.

Michael: Sara, it’s me.
Sara: What do you want?
Michael: I don’t have time to talk. And there’s every chance that they are listening to this call right now. But there’s a lot I want to say. Please don’t hang up on me.
Sara: I don’t…I don’t want to talk to you.
Michael: I heard about what happened. I want you…I want you to know how sorry I am. For everything.
Sara: Sorry’s not going to do me a lot of good for what I’m up against right now.
Michael: Listen. Anyone with any ties to me or my brother is in danger now.
Sara: I have no ties to you and your brother anymore,
Michael: There’s a way I can protect you. It’s already in your posession.
Sara: What are you talking about?!
Michael: It was real Sara. You and me…it’s real.

Michael quickly hangs up. Looks like Michael and Sara weren’t the only ones floored by that discussion. Nika doesn’t seem to happy to hear her husband talk to another woman in that way. Honey, that’s what you get when you marry a man for your green card. You didn’t expect him to actually like you, did you?

Well, as it turns out…she did. As she is saying her goodbyes to Michael and Lincoln, Nika manages to grab the gun from Linc. She told Michael that all she wanted was for him to lover her (get in line Sista). She said she always wanted to be more than the girl he called when he wanted something (and just for the record, I have no problem being that girl, so if the position is open…call me). Ok, ok, so Nika decides that she is going to turn the guys in so she can get the $200k in reward money. Not so fast La Femme Nika – looks like Linc is a lot smarter than he looks, because he removed the bullets. Ha…you got nothing but your good looks and your fake Juicy Cotoure J-Lo running suit. Sucka! Michael wishes her the best and leaves her on the side of the road. Let’s hope this is the last we see of that little Communist.

At the end of a long day, Agent Mahone can at least say he got one of the convicts off the streets. One down, seven to go. Yeah, that’s seven because the blood tests confirmed Mahone’s suspicions that it wasn’t Michael and Linc in the crashed car. They are still alive. Mahone is struggling with some ugly demons, and those demons seem to be taking the face of Michael Scofield and Oscar Shales. Who are you Mr. Shales and why do you haunt Mahone so badly?

    Yay for the DVD’s. Darn, I had to go visit a client and made the few mile detour to Target on my way back this morning 🙂

  2. GMMR on September 12th, 2006 11:11 am

    I was also at a client meeting and consider doing the same thing, but I couldn’t pull it off.

    It looked as if I yanked the first one off of the shelf, but, I cannot imagine many DVD’s were sold in Target within their first hour of opening this morning 🙂 Much luck in grabbing one after work tonight.

    I’ll try to catch your podcast during my lunch break. Hmm. Makes me wonder how much I’m actually working today……..hah

    I think you’ll really like something in the Casino Night commentary at about 7 minutes and 40 seconds.

    I picked up the dvds yesterday despite the fact that all this week I won’t have any time to watch it till about 10:30. Just two episodes a night makes me happy, though.

    I am totally hooked on this show now and am watching Season 2 even as I continue to make my way through the Season 1 DVDs. Michael’s phone call to Sara made me cry, too, and I am sad that there will be no easy answers for either one of them, even at the end of all of this, whatever “the end” may entail. Great episode – so many emotions – and great recap. Thanks.
