TV Babies: Prison Break – Episode 2-21

The clock is ticking down, and by this time next week I’ll be free: bidding Michael, Lincoln and the whole gang a mostly fond farewell. It’s been fun, but its time to move on…

The writers just can’t seem to cut loose any characters, thus the conclusion of Season 2 has become an overcrowded, chaotic mess. We have T-Bag, who has way overstayed his welcome at this point. And don’t even get me started with Michael’s ridiculous obsession, obligation – whatever you want to call it, to bring T-Bag to justice. He does remember that he’s still one of America’s Most Wanted as well, along with his brother – and has some problems of his own? Yet he’s willing to risk it all to turn T-Bag over to the authorities so he can ease his conscious? Give me a break…

So, due to this absurd twist – we have Michael, Lincoln and half the cast of Prison Break all together again in an area of Panama smaller than Fox River itself. Linc attempts to cancel Mahone out (again), but doesn’t have that killer instinct in him (again). So Mahone’s holding all the cards. Bellick looks like he’s heading back to prison (again), along with T-Bag -who Michael outduels in an anti-climatic showdown. Meanwhile, Sucre’s in a hospital (stabbed by T-Bag thanks to Michael’s brilliant plan) with no clue of Maricruz’s whereabouts. I still question whether Bellick has her stashed away anywhere. And, come to think of it – we probably haven’t seen the last of C-Note, either.

Then we have Kellerman, who the writers continually attempt to score sympathy points for. Sorry, that ship sailed long ago: his late-arriving sister won’t change that. If his testimony can help poor Sara, terrific. But Kellerman is not far removed from the animal that T-Bag is as far as I’m concerned.

Which leads to next week’s inevitable, bloated finale – where the ever-annoying Kim joins the fray. Someone will get shot, and the word off the street has most of our favorite prison breakers back in the slammer when Season 3 arrives. I, for one, will not be joining them…
