Tell me that wasn't the greatest episode of TV ever.

That was beautiful and simple storytelling at its best. I'm talking about the in-prison stuff here. So many things happening at once, but all tying together so nicely within one hour...it's the type of episode in which you could predict everything that happened, but that was such a good thing, cause the foundation had already been laid and everything made sense...so effective. The overriding story of getting Westmoreland to help out was so cool, mostly because Scofield *couldn't* break through to him. Not only is Scofield the smartest man alive, but he's also the luckiest, cause T-Bag shanking the C.O. ended up saving his ass.

The out-of-prison stuff was overkill but equally beautiful. Kellerman is just pure evil. Do you think you can press four buttons before I push one? = chilling. Madame Vice President, eh? Veronica and Nick survived that blast? How can fugitive LJ *not* be screwed?

P.S. I can't tell if there's a thread icon for this show...I can't make out a couple of them. :-)

I felt bad because I watched the episode on tape after midnight and when LJ was just standing there when Kellerman was fumbling with his step-father I caught myself yelling out "RUN, YOU FOOL!!!"

I'm still not convinced Westmoreland isn't D.B. Cooper. Scofield just needs to figure out how he got to Portland so quickly in the first place. I loved how he got his revenge on Bellick.

Insanely good episode, but this is turning into 24 for me where its SO tense I have to flip away or my head might explode.

Does this replay on FX over the weekend or anything? I started watching the marathon on Sunday and missed the new episode last night...

I really hope they replay it. I wasn't able to see it thanks to Hurricane Wilma.

This episode will replay on Monday at 8, right before a new ep at 9. This will likely be the last time to see a replay, as Arrested and Kitchen return after this. FOX is plugging 11/28's episode as the "Fall Finale" - it's the last of the original order of 13. The show has a full season order, but nothing specific was said about when the last 9 episodes will air.
