Michael Learns the Truth About Sara! And the Escape Fails! Season 3, Episode 6

Episode Recap: "Photo Finish/Vamanos" (Nov. 5, 2007) Such an eventful two hours, where to begin? How about with kudos to my wife for watching the whole thing alongside me this week. (She's not big on the intense/thriller genre. At all.) So today was the great escape... almost. The clock struck 3:13, Guard 1 was (ultimately) waylaid by the glare, Guard 2 was KOd by the drugged java, and... damn Mother Nature for sending that cloud along! Michael raced back up the makeshift rope ladder only to realize, "Oh yeah - Whistler and I were supposed to have that fight to the death." As Prison Breaky luck would have it, the hastily stowed rope ladder got noticed by Guard 1, the prison break alarm was sounded, and Michael's chicken leg-induced mano-a-mano got postponed. Oh, and some random goon took a bullet in the belly for Mikey's ladder. Let's back up a moment to give Wentworth Miller props for playing the Sara reveal so well. (Just look at that picture above right!) He spoke for many a MiSa fan with his anguish, his near lack of comprehension, his distress over never getting a chance to say goodbye... or enjoy the love he discovered and fought hard to someday behold. On the outside, Lincoln played a risky card: leading Susan B. to believe the escape did happen. Man, he was really grasping at straws, especially after seeing LJ come thisclose to his own decapitation. Amazingly, Linc (after Sucre's heroic if unsuccessful gesture) was able to coax one more chance out of SBA. Elsewhere, Mahone has been offered a chance for freedom, thanks to some Fed buddies who previously had left him for dead. Mahone, though, can't shake his paranoia and thinks he's being double-crossed. Fair enough - this is Prison Break, as I explained to my confused wife. But for me, the payoff in this two-hour sprawl came in the final twists. " Lechero is wise to Michael's escape mission - and wants in on it. Looks like patron senses that the walls are crumbling around him now that the lead bull has exposed his true nastiness and (gasp) selfishness to the inmates. " Susan B. Anthony - aka Gretchen - is in direct cahoots with Whistler, and is all but following his lead on the when of his breakout. Four more days he can stay behind bars, he said, or else he won't be free in time to... well, the writers are probably still hammering that one out. Or not. Strike and all. The bullets: " Is it really wise to walk around a prison, as Michael and Whistler did, with what is obviously a rope ladder in plan sight? " T-Bag re: Lechero's real name: "Norman?! Does he kill you before or after he does your taxes?" " The guy playing Lechero? Robert Wisdom? Really good casting, I am coming to appreciate. " Mahone re: the shiv Michael found: "What, are you going to take it to the Sona crime lab?" " Bellick misses Sara, too. His "I'm sorry" was a nice and meaningful moment, and one that needed to be played. " And then... "Kick him in the junk, Scofield!" " Linc noting the body bags that fell from Susan's van: No one was coming from that rendezvous alive. Now the question is, Did Michael get a good look at Whistler's visitor, and how can he and Linc come to realize it's who it is? show less

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.
