First Recap of the Day

I was getting bored of my Prison Break icons, so I have a new Happy Dr Sara icon for the occasion.

Episode 4.21 Rate of Exchange


Location: Miami Marina

Photobucket

Michael the Genius is going to find a way to save both Lincoln and Dr Sara. He wonders if he can get General Pad Man and Christina Rose to bring them both to the same place. Mahone thinks this is a stupid idea as his only advantage right now is that neither party knows the other has leverage on him.

Photobucket

Mahone also points out that since Dr Sara has the advantage of not having a hole in her chest right now, he should go for Linc first.

~*~

Location: Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Christina Rose is watching carelessly as the man she raised as her son for years bleeds to death. She takes the opportunity to mock his intelligence and generally prove herself to be a complete and total bitch. Just in case we didn’t understand that yet.

Michael calls and arranges to meet at the dock in 45 minutes.

~*~

Location: Miami Hotel Room

Photobucket

General Pad Man and Dr Sara are having a heart to heart about past mistakes and people’s better nature. General Pad Man asks if she ever thinks about the night she left the infirmary door open and all the lives that would have been saved if she hadn’t.

He taunts her that once Michael brings Scylla back, it will really all have been for nothing. And that Michael certainly will be bringing it back cos his heart always betrays his better judgement. Dr Sara agrees, cos if Michael had used his better judgment the night he stole Scylla, he’d have just killed General Pad Man.

This pisses off General Pad Man, who is apparently more sensitive than we realised, and he storms off, leaving her in the care of T-Bag.

Photobucket

Who is looking particularly creepy today.

Photobucket

He tells Dr Sara to take his pocket, which is a neat reference to season one. Dr Sara looks suitably disgusted.

~*~

Location: Abandoned Building

Photobucket

Michael is busying himself making some bombs while Mahone suggests that maybe he might consider just giving Scylla to Christina Rose.

Michael is confused since Mahone has been all about giving Scylla to General Pad Man. Mahone says that he’s trying to find a way to save all their loved ones, including Pam and LJ, who are currently in the sights of Company Assassins like the one who took out Self’s wife.

Michael is insistent that he will save everyone.

~*~

Location: Chicago

Photobucket

Someone has been buying “Baby Diapers”.

Photobucket

That someone is Sucre! My beloved Sucre! I knew we couldn’t have seen the last of you!

Photobucket

My beloved Sucre is spooked by a strange car following him and he runs into an alleyway.

Photobucket

This conveniently hidden man steps out.

Photobucket

And Sucre is clearly more surprised than scared.

~*~

Location: Miami Hospital

Photobucket

This is where Don Self ended up after his broken fish impression last episode. As soon as he returns to consciousness he realises that he needs to get out of this place. The nurse informs him that that might be difficult, since he has two men waiting to see him. Men with Badges.

Photobucket

The Men with Badges would like to know the location of Michael and Lincoln.

~*~

Location: Dock

Photobucket

Mahone drops Michael off for his meeting with his mother.

Photobucket

And Christina Rose and Andy arrive together. Christina Rose tells Andy that if Michael tries anything to take out both knees. And once they have Scylla, to kill Lincoln.

You are a cruel, cruel mother. And evil.

Photobucket

To make matters more complicated, Cletus here has recognised our hero and phones the police to let them know that he’s just seen “one of them guys from the news.”

Photobucket

Michael and Christina Rose meet up, neither believing that the other came alone. Neither being incorrect.

Michael wants proof that Lincoln’s alive before they continue any further.

Photobucket

As requested.

Photobucket

Michael walks backwards getting Christina Rose to follow him. He carefully steps over the wire but Christina Rose stops before walking into it herself. The police arrive and Christina Rose shouts for Michael to give her Scylla. Michael tells her to come and get it.

Photobucket

Christina Rose sends one of her goons instead.

Photobucket

And he ends toasted in the explosion intended for mummy dearest.

Photobucket

So everyone walks away unhappy. Christina Rose still has Lincoln and Michael still has Scylla.

~~

Location: Chicago

Photobucket

Sucre his talking to his mystery visitor. Who could it be?

Photobucket

It’s C-Note! Oh, this episode is so awesome already.

C-Note explains how his deal with the FBI fell through when Mahone upped and disappeared and he’s back in the same situation he was two seasons ago. He wants to know where he can find Michael and Lincoln.

Sucre absolutely refuses to help him sell out his boyfriend to the feds.

~*~

Location: Miami Hospital

Photobucket

The Men with Badges would also like to know where they can find Michael and Lincoln.

Self once again tries his covert ops story but the Men with Badges are not buying.

Photobucket

One of the men points out that anyone who impedes a terrorism investigation has no protection under the law against homeland security agents pressing down against compound fractures in their legs.

Photobucket

Well, when you put it that way.... Self says he doesn’t know where they brothers are but he can find them.

~*~

Location: Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Christina Rose takes the opportunity to taunt Lincoln some more. She tells him he won’t live long enough to be an uncle, which is a bit of a shock for Linc. The baby thing, that is, not the Christina Rose planning to kill him thing. I don’t think her evilness is any secret now.

~*~

Location: Miami Hotel Room

Photobucket

General Pad Man gives Michael a call to find out the status of his delivery. Michael says he’s trying, General Pad Man says he’s trying not to kill Sara, which would be a lot easier if he had something in his hand other than a gun.

Then General Pad Man lets Michael know that if he doesn’t have Scylla in one hour, he’s going to unleash T-Bag to “play doctor with the doctor.” What a nice way of putting it.

Photobucket

T-Bag is currently playing ‘have a conversation with the doctor’ with the doctor, which is fortunately less likely to induce vomiting.

T-Bag is whining about how Michael has messed up all of T-Bag’s chances for freedom. Yes, T-Bag, it’s all Michael’s fault. It couldn’t possibly be anything to do with you and all that raping and abducting and murdering you did.

T-Bag says this is his last shot and once it’s over he’ll have a real job with an office and a desk and BUSINESS CARDS! Dr Sara is the one to point out that a huge, wide reaching evil company like the Evil Company would have plenty of qualified employees and no use for someone like T-Bag. Once this is over all he’s getting is dead.

Photobucket

Dr Sara says that if T-Bag helps her escape she’ll put in a good word for him with Michael and the slate will be wiped clean. But T-Bag’s deep and abiding hatred of Michael Scofield means that will never happen.

~*~

Location: Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Michael calls Christina Rose to check on Lincoln. Christina Rose isn’t too happy about her son trying to blow her up and says that she’s always been able to tell when he was lying and will always be one step ahead of him.

Michael wants to talk to Linc. Christina Rose says he’s in no position to be making demands but Michael points out that if Linc dies, he has no reason to give her Scylla and will be in exactly that position.

Photobucket

Michael wants to know if Linc can tell him anything about here he is. Lincoln doesn’t know, but he does tell Michael that Dr Sara is pregnant. He tells him to save her and let him die knowing he did this thing for his brother.

Christina Rose snatches the phone back.

Photobucket

And Michael is shocked.

~*~

Location: Abandoned Building

Photobucket

Mahone still wants to know what the plan is to save Pam as well. Michael says he’s done with plans. The two boys fight and Michael says that if there’s anything Mahone needs to do to protect Pam, he should do it.

~*~

Location: Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Christina Rose just can’t get enough of taunting Lincoln. It’s like she’s addicted to it. She says the people have asked her how she could watch her son on death row. Simple, he’s not her son and she’s never cared about him.

Photobucket

As evidenced by her willingness to stab him in his bullet hole with her shoe.

~*~

Location: Miami Hospital

Photobucket

The men with badges have come to a deal with Self about immunity in exchange for the brothers. But Self insists on having it in writing from the attorney general because he doesn’t trust anyone who says they work for the government.

Makes sense when you consider how he himself screwed Michael and co over with false promises of exoneration.

~*~

Location: Chicago

Photobucket

C-Note says that Sucre’s got it all wrong and he wants to help the brothers. He just want Sucre to get them on the phone and they can decide for themselves. He says that “this guy” sought him out and wants to get “this device thing” into the right hands and once that’s done he has the power to erase their entire records and give them all their freedom.

Who could this magic man be?

~*~

Location: Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Christina Rose is on the phone with Nandu, trying to convince him that she will totally be sending him Scylla if he could just wait just a few more hours.

Photobucket

It doesn’t go well.

Photobucket

She storms back in to where she’s holding Lincoln, shouting that he cost her three quarters of a billion dollars.

Photobucket

She’s about to shoot him when she gets a phone call...

Photobucket

From Mahone. He tells her that Michael is planning to give Scylla to General Pad Man, but he’ll get it for her if she can get Pam away from whoever is watching her. He’d also like Lincoln as part of the deal, as he did help him track down the man who murdered his son. That kind of thing tends to create a bond.

Christina Rose agrees, saying that if Lincoln’s still breathing when Mahone brings Scylla he can have him.

Ok, this has to be some elaborate plan of Alex’s. He can’t really be betraying Michael, can he?

~*~

Location: Miami Hotel Room

Photobucket

T-Bag is being creepy and wrong. Which is not unusual for T-Bag, but I still want him to stop it.

Photobucket

Michael calls General Pad Man to arrange a meeting to swap Scylla for Dr Sara.

Photobucket

Michael apologises to Mahone for their fight earlier and thanks him for everything he’s done for them. Mahone says that he’s got Pam covered and hands Michael Scylla.

Photobucket

T-Bag begins untying Dr Sara for the handover. General Pad Man asks him what he thinks he’s doing and explains that he has no intention of keeping his word. Rather he has a slow death planned for Michael and will be leaving Dr Sara to T-Bag.

Photobucket

This does not bode well.

~*~

Location: Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Andy informs Christina Rose that the attorney general has just given immunity to Don Self and wonders if he could be a threat.

~*~

Location: Miami Hospital

Photobucket

Self is calling Michael so the Men with Badges can trace the call. Michael hangs up. The Men with Badges are not happy.

~*~

Location: Chicago

Photobucket

C-Note is taking Sucre to meet the mystery man. He says his name is...

Photobucket

Paul.

Paul? As in Evil Paul? Seriously?

~*~

Location: Miami

Photobucket

General Pad Man is off to get Scylla.

Photobucket

Which Michael is... leaving on a small wall?

~*~

Location: Miami Hotel Room

Photobucket

T-Bag is continuing his creepy, creepy ways. He decides to explain his plan. At first he thought he would get revenge on Michael by just killing him, but now he sees a better way. He says he’ll return Dr Sara in one piece, but that piece will be a little used and every time Michael looks at her he’ll see T-Bag.

I feel myself riling up for a rape rant but this is not the place for that, so I shall continue.

Photobucket

Ralph picks up Scylla from where Michael left it. But where could Michael be?

Photobucket

Scaling the side of the Miami Hotel, apparently. Of course. Makes perfect sense. It’s so easy to climb up smooth buildings with nobody noticing you right after major surgery!

~*~

Location: Miami Hospital

Photobucket

Self is still trying to reach Michael, this time leaving messages asking to call him back, a bit like an obsessed ex-boyfriend. The Men with Badges are still not impressed.

Photobucket

But for now they’re ordered outside by the doctor who has to check on his patient.

Photobucket

It’s Dr Andy! That can’t be good.

~*~

Location: Miami Hotel Room

Photobucket

T-Bag just can’t get enough of the creepiness.

Photobucket

Michael is still on his way up.

Photobucket

As T-Bag continues to taunt Dr Sara, she turns the tables on him by pointing out that when she was his doctor she read his medical file and knows that he can’t... tick. He has neurologic erectile dysfunction, probably caused by his own childhood sexual abuse, and despite all his grand claims of what he’s going to do to her, there is very little he can actually do.

Photobucket

This enrages Teddy and she uses to distraction to attack him with the door handle she’s managed to pull off.

Photobucket

Unfortunately T-Bag has the upper hand, since her other is still cuffed to a different handle. He is highly insulted by her thinking that he is “erectorially challenged” and is about to show her just how functional he is...

Photobucket

Fortunately for Dr Sara, that’s the point at which Michael comes in to save the day.

Photobucket

Enraged by the idea of what T-Bag was planning to do to his girlfriend, Michael is about to kill him but Dr Sara pleads with him not to.

Photobucket

Instead they go for the emotional reunion.

~*~

Location: Outside Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Mahone meets with Christina Rose to hand over Scylla. Christina Rose tells him that she has an asset in the Evil Company who was able to access the location of Pam and her bird-dog.

Mahone wants Pam moved to safety before handing over Scylla. Christina Rose wants Scylla before moving Pam to safety. Realising this could take a while, Mahone relents.

~*~

Location: Abandoned Building intercut with Christina Rose’s Office

Photobucket

Dr Sara notes that Michael has been busy and asks where the rest of it is.

Photobucket

Mahone says that he’s kept his end of the deal and demands Christina Rose make the call for Pam’s safety and give Lincoln to him.

Christina Rose decides to throw him into the room with Linc instead.

Photobucket

Linc asks Mahone what’s going on. Mahone says he’s saving Linc’s ass.

Photobucket

I was right, it was all an elaborate plan. Which Michael will now explain via flashback:

Photobucket

Just as Mahone was leaving, Michael called him back and suggested a way to save everyone. Their problems so far were rooted in the fact that Christina Rose could read Micahel like a book because she knows him. But she doesn’t know Mahone.

Photobucket

Michael says he knew General Pad Man would never keep his word so he did what he had to do and rescued Dr Sara while sending Mahone off with a Scylla-shaped bomb to end all this.

And once it’s all over, he and Dr Sara can start something new. If she’s ok with that.

Photobucket

Dr Sara is very ok with that.

Photobucket

Awwww.

Photobucket

Meanwhile, at the office, Mahone gets Lincoln far away from the door to await the boom.

Photobucket

Christina Rose and Andy realise that there’s a problem with Scylla.

Photobucket

And the timer counts down. That seems far too long a countdown to me, she has loads of time to go and kill Mahone and Lincoln for bringing her a dud Scylla.
