Prison Break Sequel Kaniel Outis Season 1 Episode 2 recap
Time is also running out as the rebels move closer and closer to the city and Ramadan moves nearer. For when Ramadan occurs, all the prisoners in solitary will be released back into the regular prison population and many of the solitary prisoners are fanatics. One in particular, Abu Ramal, is a leader among the rebels. One of Michael’s fellow would be escapees is a gay man who is convinced that the fanatics will kill him once out of solitary.
Michael has a message sent to Lincoln and C-Note. It’s coded so they take it to Sheba to get help deciphering it. She agrees to help in exchange for enough money to get her and her family out of Yemen.
She finds a telephone number on the message for the director of electrical works. They go to look for the Director at his office but he’s been missing since going into the suburbs to retrieve his daughter. Sheba, only with great reluctance, agrees to take Lincoln and C-Note into the suburbs to look for him, as the suburbs are the front line of the war, overrun by rebels, and past government control.
The suburbs are truly a scary place. You can see the signs of the war, overrun by soldiers and rebels. In fact the war setting leaks into everything in the show. You feel it in the prison and every prisoner there. From the way Michael is treated by the guards, to the city that Lincoln and C-Note must navigate through. Whenever the episode switches back to Sara, still in the US, the contrast is shocking.
The trio reaches the building where the Director is hiding, pinned down by rebels. They can get him out but he refuses to leave without his daughter, who is stuck in a basement across the street.
Lincoln steals a truck from one of the rebels which allows him to rescue the daughter and the children she teaches. The others pile into Sheba’s car and there is a race to the exit back into the city, chased by a car with a mounted gun. They make it, but it’s a tense couple of minutes. Later the Director reveals that he is the father of the gay man working with Michael, and agrees to help with the escape plan and arrange a blackout for them.
Back in the US, Sara goes to the Department of State to try to get official help in rescuing Michael, where she runs into Paul Kellerman of all people. Kellerman shows her the official records that all show that Michael is truly Kaniel Outis and believes that Michael is one of the few people capable of doing it. He also shows her photos of Michael apparently killing the deputy director of the CIA before fleeing to Yemen. Given the fact that Lincoln was similarly set up in the original run of the show, right down to bloody clothes being found in his possession, it’s hard to understand why Sara even entertains the idea.
But she does go to her husband for advice, telling him everything. He cautions her that Michael is a mastermind of manipulation and game theory, who’s plotting and plans could have brought him to a point where he no longer cares about right and wrong.
Later, she goes to pick up her son from school and discovers that he’s been given an origami flower with a message written inside: Hide everyone. A storm is coming.
In Ogygia prison, the lights flicker off twice, giving the signal to Michel and his co-conspirators that the blackout will occur in twenty-four hours. If they or the city have that long.
Solitary is opened up, and the dangerous prisoners are released, including Ramal who approaches Michael and hugs him, asking in his ear if he’s found a way for them to escape, to which Michael tells him yes, it will happen tomorrow night.
There’s a great mystery building, without losing the original flavor of the Prison Break show and what made it so great. Michael is as fun a character to watch as ever and the stakes truly feel high when set against a backdrop of civil war and fanaticism.
