Storyline

After the riot, Dr. Tancredi has questions about how Michael knew his way through the prison's crawlspaces. Lincoln, meanwhile, is informed by a visitor that his son's life will be forfeit if he doesn't agree to give up the fight and go down quietly, while At his home, LJ is confronted by the two agents who quickly murder his parents and frame him for the crime. Enraged over the loss of one of the guards, Warden Pope and Captain Bellick begin tossing cells and putting pressure on the inmates to find who the murderer was. As for the escape plan, a snag is hit when the team realizes they need the help of Westmoreland to get them access to a restricted room that happens to be right over the sewer pipe.

Doing for Their Country
28 September 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Warden Pope asks Captain Bellick to find the murderer of Bob at any cost. Meanwhile Michael needs to access a restricted storage room that is also a private recreation room of the C.O.s, and the only prisoner with free access is DB. He invites DB to join his team, but the old man refuses the invitation. Meanwhile a bomb explodes at Veronica's place and she goes with Nick to an isolated hideout that belonged to his father. Lincoln is threatened by a visitor that promises to kill his son. Kellerman and Hale kill LJ mother and stepfather and frame him, faking fingerprints in the murder weapon.

"The Old Head" is a tense but flawed episode. First, how could Veronica and Nick be presumed dead after the explosion of her apartment without their human remains? Second, why Lincoln did not mention the menace of his visitor to the warren after the notification of the death of LJ mother and stepparent? In a security prison, she certainly registered to have access to the visiting room. Last but not the least, the prisoner accused had all the elements necessary to incriminate T-Bag (inclusive the informer is the "mate" of T-Bag). Nevertheless the surprising twist in the end disclosing the identity of the conspirator gives a magnificent conclusion to this engaging episode. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Perseguição" (Persecution")
