The good news is that Linc has been exonerated, and Michael is to be transferred to a “more moderate” prison before his trial.

"Orientacion" Season 3, Episode 1

Welcome to Sona! If you need fresh linens or wish to sample our salon services, ring the bell and an attendant will be right with you! Not. Man, this is one nasty, yucky hellhole. Having seen the second episode as well, I can tell you it gets a bit less foul, and (as I said in a recent TV Guide Talk podcast) starts to resemble just an especially dirty Motel 6. This season premiere gave me a knowing chuckle at times, namely when the dialogue seemed targeted for juicy trailer/preview sound bites. "Sona... is where they send the worst of the worst." "There are no guards." "What goes in... doesn't come out." "They play Celine Dion all day there." They have made the place seem so wretched, in fact, that if Michael doesn't get his "pretty" mussed up some - and quickly - I'm crying cop-out. I know Went is half the show's bread 'n' butter, but Michael is overdue for a bruising. It's not spoiling much to say that ( Spoiler alert anyway) Episode 2 somewhat addresses that issue. As Dominic Purcell told me in our recent Q&A, this season is about the bros being separated, that while Mikey is in the clink, Linc will get wrapped up in a "spy story" of sorts. Yes, The Company still has an unhealthy fixation on Michael, but as you will soon see, it's for a different reason now. As long as they do not try to sell us on the two conspiracies being intertwined and on them counting on Michael getting thrown into Sona all along, I'll go along for the ride. Ouch, it just snuck up on me - the image of Bellick traipsing around in... well, next to nothing save for a film of dirt and palpable stench. Get used to it. He doesn't clean up too soon. I know Mahone and Michael have their "issues," but it seems to me that if I was tossed into this squalid prison, I'd want some sort of "friend" on my side. Can't these guys get along? Just when you think they might, vastly different agendas will distance them again. Will Sucre's dream come true? Did he survive the season finale to reunite at long last with (the original) Maricruz? Stay tuned. And then there is T-Bag. He's one smart cookie, even in this strange new prison. Face it, the guy knows how these places work, and how to make them work for him. We didn't get too much of the new folk in this episode, but there's much more next week. The prison boss is a neat character with a surprisingly organized administration in place. But next week, one of life's most basic necessities threatens to unravel all he has built. Quite interesting, in an "upper body tattoo" sort of way, how that all plays out. Welcome to Sona.

Premise: An engineer gets himself incarcerated to engineer the escape of his death-row brother, who was framed for killing the vice president's brother. While the setup requires a leap of faith, the drama is consistently taut as Michael Scofield succeeds, only to find himself and his fellow escapees on the lam in Season 2---and back in prison, this time in Panama, in Season 3, giving Michael another escape to engineer. In Season 4, Michael and crew were back in the U.S., chasing the nefarious Company.
