Now that Abu Ramal is in gen pop, will Michael and his cellmates be safe? Meanwhile, T-bag tracks Sara down… Get a sneak peek of tonight’s new Prison Break!
Little by little, we’re learning more about Michael, his “Kaniel Outis” alter ego, and how in the world he plans to break out of Ogygia.
In last week’s episode we spent quite a bit of time with Michael inside the prison, watching him interact with other prisoners, as well as reach outside Ogygia’s walls.
We learned that Michael’s plans depend on a blackout at Ogygia. He relied on a cellmate, Sid, to make this happen, since Sid’s father was the “Sheik of Light”, AKA the Director for Electrical Works. When there was a delay, Michael reached out to Lincoln and C-Note at their hotel (via a origami swan delivered by a young boy) to find the Sheik.
With help from Sheba (reluctant, and only in exchange for the money she needed to leave Yemen), they tracked down Sid’s father to the suburbs. If one could imagine, the suburbs were even more dangerous than the city proper, as they were in total control by ISIL. With a lot of cunning and luck, Linc, C-Note, and Sheba were able to get Sid’s father, sister, and several school children to relative safety (the car chase and gun showdown in the middle of the street was insanity!) P.S. Did anyone notice a look of appreciation from Sheba to Linc? Potential romance there??? Now Sid’s father would have 24 hours to trigger the Ogygia blackout… but would the country survive that long?
Similarly, Michael was able to trade some pills to another cellmate (Ja, a Korean drug addict with a smuggled cell phone) for access to the phone and a credit card. He used this to reach out to Mike Jr. and Sara in Ithaca, NY. For her part, Sara was shocked Michael was alive, happy (she loved him!), but also upset. Why would Michael abandon her and their son? And after a meeting with Paul Kellerman, was it possible that Michael was really this Kaniel Outis, murderer and terrorist? All of these questions were on her mind when she went to pick up Mike Jr. from school. At first they though Mike was missing, but really, he was accepting an origami flower from a pizza delivery guy. This note urged Sara to “Hide everyone. A storm is coming.” Oh my…
And then, inside the prison, Michael and his cellmates had reached a serious deadline. The prison was planning to release the hard core Islamist terrorists who were in solitary into the general population for the holiday. This meant that any LGBT inmates (Sid) and Americans (Michael) were in danger of being killed. Or so they thought… because Abu Ramal (Yemen’s ISIL leader) was released and he walked straight to Michael and embraced him. It looked like Ramal was planning on breaking out too.
In tonight’s episode “The Liar”:
When T-Bag ambushes Sara, he warns her that two of Poseidon’s henchmen, Van Gogh and A&W, may be following her. Meanwhile, Lincoln attempts to retrieve his confiscated passport to escape Yemen, and Michael plans his next move. (via FOX)
Poseidon?! Is this another version of The Company???
Check out this sneak peek of “The Liar”, which includes BTS interviews with EP Paul Scheuring and Rick Yune (Ja). They talk about the rising tensions in Yemen, and how this shapes the potential for escape from Ogygia and the country.
OMG, please save Sid!
