Summary: Prison Break - S4 Episode 8

The scene started off with a flashback : in Chicago, year 2001. Lincoln and his friend were on a Hit-Steal-Run mission. Lincoln smashed into their target's car, snatched the suitcase from the target, and they flee from the scene with another car.

Back to present, Lincoln explained the idea to the gang. Although Roland described it as Kamikaze, and Sucre was worrying about the 'crashing', yet Lincoln stressed that it is the only way to get the General's data card, the final card!

Gretchen, Michael and Self had a meeting at the church. Gretchen wanted to hop on board to bring down the company, at the same time getting some traveling money. With Gretchen & T-bag owning the last few pages of Whistler's birdbook, Michael was forced to put down their differences temporary, until everything is over.

Back at the warehouse, everybody was furious at Roland for losing the card, and Michael gave him his 'early retirement' and sent him to his room...oh... I mean upstairs.

Sara & Michael had a conversation about the nosebleeds. Michael insisted that he's fine. And told Sara about Gretchen's 'well-being' and the idea of her joining the team to bring down the company. Sara was stunned, but agreed reluctantly. While she was alone, she had some flashbacks of Gretchen whipping her during her time of confinement in Panama.

Roland, who was all alone upstairs, using his talent to make sure his text message to Wyatt was untraceable. Been isolated by the team for his mistakes, he decided to flash his last card ---to sell off Michael and Lincoln to the General. Bad idea!

T-bag was released from the basement. The Chinese guy, Feng, who came for Scylla threatened to kill T-bag. Gretchen made a deal with Feng, a total of 125 million dollars for the Scylla. So, lucky T-bag, apart being spared, he was drooling over the big bucks!

Meanwhile, the team was busy preparing for the perfect mission, but Self was still doubtful for the plan to work. After the explanation, we know that basically, the plan is to smash the General's limo, pump him full of morphine (so he wouldn't have any ideas what happened to him after waking up next morning on the hospital bed, as Sara put it), download the card onto the laptop, put it back, then flee from the scene. In order to fake as paramedics to avoid suspicions, Self had to make himself useful by getting them one ambulance from the Federal Impound Lot, which coincidently had 4 ambulances seized for drug-smugling. Coincidence?

General and the card holders were in a meeting. The flooding of counterfeit notes (money) to the Laotian market was actually a trial, before they would launch the real operation on the US market! Wyatt interrupted the meeting and informed General about the untraceable message by Roland.

Self went to the Federal Impound Lot office, and bought time for Michael and Lincoln to steal the ambulance at the parking lot. The conversation about nosebleeds came up and the brothers had a little disagreement, but obviously Lincoln was worrying over Michael's health.

Right before Sara left for the mission, Roland told her he was sorry, although he claimed he apologized for Vegas, but obviously not. General ordered Wyatt to bait the hook for Roland. He took it for 1 million dollar, and informed Wyatt the brothers were at King Willow, where the plan took place. The General was informed that the gang was nearby, thus, the plan failed before it could be commenced. Wyatt came straight at Lincoln and Sucre who were in the car, and there goes the bullet rain. Luckily the duos managed to escape from the scene but Sucre got shot at his waist. At the warehouse, Sara gave Sucre the on-spot operation.

Michael suddenly realized the only possible traitor-to-be is Roland. He gave Roland back his laptop and asked him to work on some tasks. Roland escaped with it and met with Wyatt for the so-called 'legit business transaction'. Wyatt shot him at both of the kneecaps, demanding for the gang's hideout.

After getting what he needs, he gave Roland a fatal shot. Now the best scene of the night -- Alex appeared from behind and beat-up Wyatt like crazy! Yes, Michael actually planted a tracing chip in Roland's laptop, and Wyatt was captured!! Everyone left Roland to die by himself, as he sold them out and nearly cost Sucre his life, but Michael decided to stay with him until he gave out his last breath.

T-bag wanted to get his cut from Gretchen's 125 millions. Gretchen sneered and told him he needs to earn his pay, and she mentioned about getting rid of Michael and the gang, also, another surprising remark that “Scylla is not just the Company little black book” ! T-bag and the secretary were officially allies behind Gretchen's back, and they were secretly copying Gretchen's finger prints, in case she disappeared on the Big Pay day!

Gretchen asked Self to inform Sarah, she will meet her at the Safari motel, to clear off the debts, once and for all. Sara declined it, but in the end, went anyway. Sara's flashbacks depicted there was a lady trying to help her escape by passing her a key for her lockup. As a result, the lady got shot at the head by Gretchen. So now we know Sara's hatred for Gretchen was actually because of this poor lady. At the motel, Gretchen tried to even out with Sara by letting her do the whipping for 5 minutes. Sara refused, instead, she had a knife at Gretchen's neck, demanding the name of the lady who died for her sake, Michelle Taylor. Right before Sara left, she told Gretchen she will pay for what she did to Michelle.

General was nervous about Michael's attempt on getting the card. He ordered to have Scylla moved immediately! Now, I bet everyone is eager to know what on earth is this Scylla thingy??

So it's a long summary, because I think it's necessary to give out all the details since it's a brilliant episode. Apart being ecstatic that Wyatt was captured, I felt sorry for Roland's death. The guy obviously made a wrong choice out of desperation and cost him his life. Also, this episode also gave us fresh ideas about what exactly is Scylla? So, it is not just the company's little black book, it's more than that. Something that requires “days of security arrangements if it is to be moved”, as mentioned by Lisa Tabak to the General. Time to put on your thinking cap or wait for next episode!

Summary: Prison Break - S4 Episode 7

Gretchen tortured T-bag, for information about Scylla. But ended up working together with him to retrieve information from Michael instead, of course, not in a polite way.

As for our dream team, their 5th card holder, Scuderi chartered a plane and flew for Vegas. Since the secretary from GATE called Bellick about T-bag’s whereabouts, Michael decided to stay with Alex & Bellick, while Roland, Sucre, Sara & Lincoln went for Vegas.

Agent Self was worried about Wyatt coming after him, and asked experienced-Alex’s advice about how he should do about it. Alex told him to 'stop running', 'get aggressive and get back at them', like how Michael did when he was trying to track him down, back in the old days.

Michael and others went for the secretary when she demanded for more money. Unfortunately, it was a set-up! So everyone ended up been tied up, luckily Alex managed to escape while T-bag wasted some bullets at him ! Alex went to Self, informed him about Michael's captivity, and borrowed the tracking device to locate them.

Meanwhile, back in the apartment, T-bag threatened Michael to sort things out from the bird book, especially the map, while Gretchen hiding somewhere, monitoring. Michael finally came out with a blueprint for GATE Corporation The intention of decoding Scylla is very close at hand now! T-bag thought the reason Michael was aftering Scylla is for the money! And Michael played along so T-bag would bring him into GATE. With the detector, Alex came for Michael and others, and found nobody but the ankle-monitor & a paper crane left by Michael, written 'GATE'.

Gretchen kidnapped Andrew from GATE and killed him in front of Bellick & the secretary.

Wyatt came for Agent Self at his house, but Self went for the General instead, and confronted him -- If anything should happen to him, he would bring the attention to the public, with enough information that he collected. Seems like Self is safe for the time being.

Back in Vegas, Lincoln told Sara about Michael's nose-bleed, and how their mom died from tumor at age 31 years old. With Michael's condition very similar to his mom, Lincoln & Sara worried that Michael who just turned 31 this year, might encounter the same fate.

In order to get close to Scuderi, Sara put on a sexy outfit, hoping for a passage to Scuderi's room. Unexpectedly, he was far from interested ! Taken from the bartender’s word, Scuderi seemed to have a 'different likings' of his own! The team had no choice but to put Sucre on the table. Poor Sucre! Unwillingly, but still charmed himself all the way, until Scuderi finally asked him to come up to his suite to talk about 'private business' between men. Getting nervous eh? While the card was downloading fine in the room, things started to take a turn when Scuderi explained to Sucre how he was unable to perform husbandly duty for his wife, and wish Sucre to do it for him, plus another $1,000 worth of gambling chips ! Oh My Gawdd…! Anyway, the gang was all set to go home, yet Roland insisted on trying some luck at the Casino. His winnings caught attention from the manager, who not only gave him warnings, but snatched away the downloading device as well !! Bummer!

Back to T-bag & Michael, they went for Scylla in GATE, and found a basement, from the office. Michael tricked T-bag and locked him up, when Alex came for his rescue. Self arrived too, and while the guys were confident about getting Scylla soon, Gretchen called, and presented them some lost information in finding the Scylla, with the condition to release T-bag. AGAIN??!!

Overall, I would give an 8/10 for this episode! Enjoyable to watch, not loosing its suspense as well. Just the Vegas trip is a bit too short for them. I hope everyone was there.

Summary: Prison Break - S4 Episode 6

The scene started off at the racetrack, with Bellick distracted the guards with his little 'scene' at the counter, gave Lincoln enough time to place a controller at the gate, causing a huge set back to the horse that Mr Edison (4th card holder) was bet on. He was pissed and demanded explanation from the operations manager at the office, where the downloading device was placed, under the table. After it reached 100%, Alex went back to retrieve the device. Unfortunately, he got arrested later for barging in the restricted area. Now, the gang was in conflict whether or not to break him out of jail.

The General did some background-check on Self. Later, he sent Wyatt to give Self a little 'friendly' advice about staying out of his privacy.

At Riverside, California, Gretchen went for her sister. After freshened up, she got herself a weapon, perhaps pay back time for the Company instead? Here, we found out that Gretchen has a daughter, Emily, whom she gave custody to her sister.

After Wyatt spotted Alex at the police station, Alex thought he would be doomed, so he called Michael, asking him to finish off Wyatt for him and Pam. This caused Michael to reconsider about postponing their plan for Scuderi, the 5th card holder. Why? Because the gang was going to help Alex break out of court (not jail, thank God), after all. Alright !

While trying to find more clues from the bird book, T-bag faced more troubles after Andy found out more inconsistencies in his sales report, causing T-bag to flee from the GATE for good. His nightmare was far from over, as Gretchen caught up to him, so two evil-doers going to have some chat, in a hard way.

This episode was less focusing on the card than the previous ones, obviously. Instead, it showed more 'humanity' on the characters: Gretchen's 'human' side when at her sister's; and the team's risky attempt to rescue Alex, whom they once disgusted, from Wyatt at the court house (although they could choose not to). Perhaps there are messages in between? Anyway, that's for the viewers to ponder.

How about some sneak peak for Episode 7:
