    Looked to me like Kellerman was whacked, and that he was expecting it. He must've known that the Company or Corporation or whatever they call themselves was pissed at his spilling the beans, and he was expecting to get whacked. He was a little loony at the end with the botched suicide and all. At least this way, he got to die with honor -- even though the bros are still in deep doo-doo. Interesting, though, that it looks like Linc might have to mastermind a Panama prison break. Michael just doesn't have any more space on his bod for a second set of tats.

    I went back and skimmed over my tape. When the boy first met Michael and tried to sell him some drugs, Michael didn't have a back-up plan. Then Mahone called him letting him know he had Lincoln and to bring the boat. After that conversation Michael must have formulated his plan. So he called Sarah, not knowing if she'd get the message since he figured she'd be going to prison, but he said "if you do get this message listen carefully." Then he went and found the boy on the beach and they went to see the drug guys.

    Sarah in the meantime is free, checks her cell messages and hears the one from Michael. She says something to the effect that Michael doesn't know Lincoln is free and what he's about to do is dangerous. Then we see her trying to call Michael as he goes to meet with the drug guys. Which was pretty dangerous. Since he had a wad of money, they could have followed him to the find the rest of it and then killed him. I'm surprised the show didn't go in that direction with all the wrenches they've thrown into the plans.

    I agree with whoever said it's beyond belief (which the show has been mostly anyway) that the brothers would choose the same location to make their escape as the mysterious SONA facility. I could buy them fleeing to Panama. I can buy that there's some secret government facility. But for the two stories to come together in the same location - no way. Unless, SONA is not in Panama. Since Michael, Bellick, and Mahone all arrived by transport, it's possible they were driven back into Mexico.

    And after seeing Bellick crumpled on the floor shivering, I couldn't even see that he was wearing underwear. Then Michael steps to an open door with loud yelling in the background and it's clearly an outside area because you can see the rain coming down.

    Remember when Michael was dropped off at SONA, one of his escorts said "this is as far as we go"? Seemed a strange thing to say if it were a regular prison. Makes sense that SONA is located somewhere quite different. All Michael has to do is escape. That's what "they" want. Maybe there is something about the surrounding area that is significant. That Michael escapes and then does something in that area. I was thinking perhaps a Mad Max community, but since the General is so interested, maybe an international political situation of some kind. Wouldn't it be strange if the plan all along, by the General, was to have Michael escape from Fox River so he could end up at SONA.

    I would have loved a baby for Michael and Sarah, but it's pretty hard to have a pregnant Sarah when the time lapse has only been a few weeks! That would be one super fast growing baby. But I'm sure they could just tie it back to SONA .

    Re: Prison Break

    I've just finished watching all of Prison Break. Rented the first season and fell in love with it then went on a mad scramble to see all of Season 2 I loved it all and had no trouble suspending belief. It helped that both Michael & Lincoln are excellent eye candy and that the show is full of incredible character actors (T-Bag, Bellick, etc)

    It's quite possible that The Company "chose" that facility after learning Panama was where Michael was headed. I doubt SONA is the only facility they have and it just happened it was the closest and would serve the purpose.

    Sara finding Michael - that was hard to dismiss. That Agent Kim just happened to appear, even harder. But once Sara shot him I was happy to let that one go That little smirk of his...

    Kellerman. If he was in fact executed by The Company - how stupid! He just finished spilling his guts, killing him in that manner pretty much substantiates everything he said. Great way to sweep that one under the rug. However, if he was rescued by the group who worked with Aldo Burrows, great way to keep the spotlight on it. He was an interesting character so I wouldn't mind seeing him again.

    As for C-Note, I can't see The Company just letting him go. I bet he ends up back in Season 3 fighting again for his family.

    What I didn't get was the order to execute all 8 escapees. Okay, I get that they believed Michael told them everything, but what did he had to tell? He knew nothing and they knew that. And once they escaped they went their separate ways so it's obvious he didn't keep them up to speed on his personal crusade.

    Another thing that still doesn't make sense is how TC knew to use T-Bag as bait for Michael. One explanation I guess could be his psychiatric record showing his hero complex, but why wait until Panama?

    There's a lot about this show that could be dissected and questioned, but it's still entertaining and that's my prime requirement for tv viewing Now I can't wait for season 3!

    Man, didn't PB come back earlier last year? I feel like it started in August last summer. September is too far to get my Linc fix!! (Oh who I am kidding, I am SO excited!)

    It did start earlier, but this year with a shorter Baseball playoff season they've pushed back their premiere dates. I believe it also has to do with the hit or miss scheduling of new shows in the past two years. (August worked for PB, but not for a show like Justice)

    I can't wait for this show to start back up. It was one of my favorites shows. I do hope they start airing the repeats from last season though. I guess it's been a long summer for me, because I've forgotten a lot of what went on.
