Michael Scofield is locked up in Ogygia Prison but not letting it stop him from plotting the great escape. As any fan of Prison Break knows, the wheels in Scofield’s head are always turning and he’s planning his next move.
This article contains spoilers so if you haven’t seen the episode “Kaniel Outis” please do not continue reading.
It is this reviewer’s opinion that the second episode “Kaniel Outis” was lacking in the high octane excitement in which Prison Break is known. Not to say it was a bad episode, but it didn’t keep me on the edge of my seat as much as the premiere did. I think that was because after all these years of not seeing these characters, I was eagerly awaiting the return and hanging on every word and scene of “Ogygia.” Plus as a fan of that crazy but fun menace known as Theodore Bagwell a/k/a T-Bag (played by Robert Knepper), I really missed him in this episode.
That being said, I was happy to see Paul Kellerman (Paul Adelstein) make an appearance. He had some good scenes with Sara (Sara Wayne Callies) where he was as charming as ever. Kellerman had never been a card carrying member of the Michael Scofield Fan Club, but I don’t really think that he believes Michael is a stone-cold killer/terrorist who would fake his own death and leave his family behind. Hey, this is the guy who got full body ink; getting locked up on purpose in order to break his brother out of a maximum security prison. It seemed that Paul was almost taunting Sara with his comments as he looked at the information on Kaniel Outis, with Michael’s picture now inserted. Though in this age of social media, it’s pretty scary to think that with a few clicks of computer keys, our entire lives can be altered as though we never existed.
Lincoln and C-Note (Dominic Purcell and Rockmond Dunbar) story was okay. I found myself wanting to see some big fight scenes/action sequences. I know the writers have to give us a reason for any altercations these guys face but this is Prison Break; so the more action, the better. And boy did we get it. Courtesy of a scene involving a car and truck chase with a guy with a machine gun shooting away. It was a nice touch of the writers to have the guy that was saved have a connection to Michael. I hope that we get to see Lincoln making some plans of his own to get his little brother out. Right now, it feels like he’s just “going with the flow and playing things by ear” not the best thing to do when you’re in a place like Yemen! I know that Prison Break has always established that Michael was the thinker, but I believe Lincoln is more than just brawn.
I don’t know what to make of Sara’s husband yet though. He is almost too nice and understanding, which usually means something else is afoot. Could he be involved in the plot against Michael? That would be a nifty revelation.
I have to say that I loved how Michael’s “I wanna order pizza” was his way of getting that flower delivered to his son and Sara. And let me not even mention the origami. These are classic Prison Break touches and I love it!
