Prison Break - Monday April 30

prison break chicago (16/22)
22.00–23.00

The acclaimed prison escape drama continues tonight. In this episode, Michael, Lincoln, Kellerman and Sara head for Chicago in the hope of revealing the conspiracy; C-Note is trapped when the diner he and Dede are in is held up; and Bellick becomes Mahone’s latest ally.

After everything that she has been through, Sara is relieved to finally be reunited with Michael. She is less happy, however, to come face to face with Kellerman again, unable to believe that the man who tortured her and left her for dead is now working for the good guys. “What’s done is done,” Kellerman tells her smugly. “We all want the same thing.” Michael reacts by shoving Kellerman up against the wall and threatening him, but the agent knows that he’s too valuable for the fugitives to kill him just yet. He proves his point by identifying the mysterious key that Sara found at her father’s: it’s from a private cigar club in Chicago.

With this in mind, Michael, Lincoln, Kellerman and Sara board a train heading for the city. Kellerman flashes his FBI badge and tells the guard that he is transporting a fugitive and needs a carriage cleared, gaining some useful privacy. Unfortunately for Kellerman, the journey gives the troubled Sara more than enough time to reflect on how Kellerman kidnapped her and attempted to drown her. Finally she snaps and decides to give him a taste of his own medicine –but what consequences will her hot-headedness have?

Mahone, meanwhile, is desperate to find out where the brothers have got to. He is distracted, however, when another agent informs him that the location of another Fox River fugitive has been identified: a man fitting Haywire’s description was seen running from the scene of a homicide in Wisconsin. Mahone is ready to ignore this development, preferring instead to focus on finding Michael and Lincoln, but Agent Kim tells him that Haywire might be useful and orders him to “take care of it.”

Mahone reluctantly agrees, but knows that he’s going to have to recruit some extra help. He goes to visit Bellick at Fox River, and tells him that he can get him out of prison if he agrees to work for Mahone “under the radar” to bring the escapees in. “I need a junkyard dog who’s willing to do the ugly things it takes to bring a con to justice,” he explains. “Are you my dog, Brad?” Bellick doesn’t need asking twice –and it’s not long before he’s out of Fox River and back on the trail…

Also this week, C-Note almost finds himself back in custody after a diner hold-up gets out of hand, but uses his powers of persuasion to calm down the strung-out robber; while T-Bag’s twisted dream of reconstructing his former family is tested when an oblivious visitor arrives at the house. Bellick gets his teeth into his new duties and manages to track down Haywire. Kellerman starts to suspect that the President’s phone calls may not be what they seem. And Sara admits to Michael that she broke the number one rule of working in a prison: never fall for an inmate…
