Prison Break: Fin Del Camino
(S02E21) I have always loved Prison Break and I am rarely disappointed with an episode. Tonight, however, made me look forward to the season finale.
I understand that with the finale looming, many story lines have to be set up before they can be settled, but does it have to all be set up in one episode? All the exposition after Michael showed up in Panama made me feel like I was watching a documentary. Teddy's got the money, Bellick's got Maricruz and Micheal wants to stop Teddy. Yes, I get it already. When Teddy trapped Michael, Sucre and Bellick in the room and Michael yelled, "It's a setup!" I actually laughed out loud.
Haven't we all learned by now that when a military man put on his dress uniform in a hotel room he only has one thing on his mind? The set up took so long I wanted to commit suicide! However, I will admit that Kellerman's entrance into the courtroom was a welcome sight. Nobody wants to see Sara end up in jail and if he can help her then he may finally get the absolution he is searching for.
I did enjoy seeing Sara's trial, mainly cause I now know exactly what she's being charged with. Honestly, I wasn't sure if it was aiding a fugitive, conspiracy, treason or just dying her hair to a color that doesn't compliment her complexion. If she does get convicted, I hope the prison has a tanning bed.
I enjoyed the reunion in Panama and I only wish that someone had taken the time to raise a glass to the guys who couldn't make it. The non-surprises continued when Linc took Mahone out of the picture and then, of course, ended up getting himself caught. Wasn't that the whole point of season one? He's NOT a killer.
The other thing I liked about this episode was how T Bag refused to give up. Clearly the T stands for tenacious. Teddy became my favorite character long ago and most of the credit has to go to Robert Knepper. Only a gifted actor can make the audience feel sorry for demented reprobate like T Bag. I can't wait to see if he loses his other hand.
Overall I found this episode a snooze but if they can make it up to me in the finale next week, I'll probably be able to forgive them.
