"Dirt Nap" Season 3, Episode 9

To those who didn't entirely care for the "tone" I (allegedly) had in last week's recap, please hear me when I say... that this week's episode was one of the best in a while! I really felt like a lot happened. Sucre and Gretchen AKA "Sugar." His and Linc's plot to pull a fast one on Gretchen was uncovered, but along the way we enjoyed some (what I saw to be) flirty banter from Ms. Anthony's direction. Alas, the cashier's check - which smelled fishy the moment we saw it (since when do bad guys not like to lug around greenbacks?) - led the Company to Sucre's Achilles Heel, Maricruz. But isn't she a Las Vegas casino hostess now, anyway? On a superficial note, I preferred Gretch's hair this week - not so sleek and straight and eeee-vil. Lincoln and Sofia Dominic Purcell has forever been teasing some hubba-hubba between these two, so I've been waiting, patiently, for a step in that direction. And then we got the Eiffel Tower tchotchke. Awwww. Our boy might actually be getting horizontal... someday. Then, just as Sofia starts washing that James out of her hair, she uncovers the old Metal Briefcase - dollars to donuts, it contains something "interesting," especially seeing as how it was produced just as Mahone speculated on Whistler's true vocation. Bellick AKA "Champ." You just knew that when he went scrambling for a new batch of acetone, he'd come up empty. Shoe polish?! 1) Would that knock someone out and 2) Why would someone in that squalid hellhole be shining their shoes? Sammy You punk . So glad your reign of power lasted about as long as a Lindsay Lohan jail stay. Sure, he could have been a formidable new patron , but c'mon, with that crew of goofballs at his side? The writing was on the wall. As for the form of his demise: saw it coming a mile away, but still most enjoyable. That said, were I a fellow inmate, at this point I'd be all, " Who is in charge here? I crave continuity of leadership!!" Michael and the Gang A part of me was so happy/nostalgic when T-Bag forced himself onto the escape crew, because it just seemed like ole times. I wanted Michael to say, "I've taken him with me once, why not do it again." That brings the group to, what, six? Michael, Whistler, Lechero, Mahone, T-Bag and Bellick. Perhaps seven, if the kid ultimately weasels his way in, as Sucre's portly cousin did just before the Fox River breakout. (And we all know how well that last-minute addition served the plan.) So Michael has started on the route to No Man's Land, the unrest within Sona is under control, Linc seems to be on top of things on the outside, and Sofia seems thisclose to exposing James' true agenda/value to the Company. The "season" finale isn't far away - what is about to go very wrong now? PS. Remember how utterly horrifying Michael's arrival at Sona was, in the last season finale? It was night, it was raining, it was really, really icky.... I know rain is hard to do, but why is every single Sona scene set in the daytime? That's what makes the place look more like a bad Motel 6 versus a prison for the worst of the worst. Use our Online Video Guide to find past Prison Break episodes and catch up on new clips. 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.
