Re: Prison Break 4x16 "The Sunshine State" - Discussion and Spoilers

It's 9:52 CST, and no comments, not even a vote! i got interrupted by my 3 year old, so i will try to watch the whole thing later...some good stuff, but it seems like they are stretching it REEEEEEEAAAALLLLLYYYY out, huh?


One scene i did see -- where T-Bag has sympathy over Susan B.'s little girl. Now, T-Bag is supposed to be a complex criminal (after initially being just a top dog lowlife in the early 1st season). What exactly were T-Bag's previous crimes (that got him in prison in the first place). i got the impression early on that he might have been some kind of child molester (in addition to murder, deception, etc.)...but does T-Bag have an honest soft spot for children?

It was revealed in T-Bag's past he tried to settle down with a woman with two children whom he claimed he "hadn't touched in any wrong way." In Season 2 he, on the lam, he re met up with the woman (who was responsbile for turning T-Bag in that landed him Fox River) and tried to pick things up but failed. A friend of his (brother?) also lost a child at the hands of the mafia Aburzzi was part of that he had a soft-spot for. So T-Bag has shown some... "humanity" in him.

At the same time he's still a murderous rapist pedophille. So some of his turn-coat is hard to buy. He killed SEVERAL people in S2 without much emotion at all.

Tonight's was an OK episode. Personally I think there's been better episodes over the last couple of weeks to end the half-season on.

Susan B. looked damn fine in her leather dress thing though.

Yeah, this was a weak way to go to break after what's been a great season so far. I voted average, because it seemed like a lot of filler.

Decent episode, actually below the quality of recent episodes.

Still, we have confirmation that they're doing an Alias and that the big bad is.....MOMMY!

Good, spoiler-ish interview here with Jodi Lyn O'Keefe:

I'll say that I didn't like Gretchen/Susan B. last season but this season she has grown on me. Jodi is a fine looking woman, too, so that helps.

I'll give it an average, I dunno about the logic behind bringing Mommy into the mix, or Linc & Michael being on the outs. Seems very forced. But, I like the way they've evolved the Scylla plot away from the expected direction. Only six episodes to go till the very likely series finale, so they better make em count.

Self annoys the hell out of me and I wish someone would just kill him already, but the guy who stole Scylla was cool while he lasted. I finally figured out where I'd seen him before: one of Al Swearengen's henchmen from Deadwood.
