Prison Break Sequel The Liar Season 1 Episode 3 Recap
Michael arranges to send another message to Lincoln, this time giving them a location that he’s had rented for four years in Yemen, which is full of all his planning and everything he needs in order to escape from the country. When Lincoln searches the location, there’s evidence of Michael wanting to break out Ramal which leads C-Note to wonder about the ethics of what they’re doing.
Recently released back into the general population of the prison, Ramal is trying to radicalize the inmates. The heightened tensions cause suspicion and doubt to grow among Michael’s crew, especially with Whip. Through Whip we learn that Michael ended up in the prison while working with Whip for the CIA. They were sent here to break Ramal out of prison, but their contact in US government abandoned them. Kaniel Outis was a persona created for Michael in order to buy the trust of people in the prison. That was a mystery that didn’t last very long. Not that we could ever really doubt Michael, so it makes sense that it was wrapped up quickly and we’ve moved onto the more intriguing question of why Michael was working for the CIA.
Since Whip is worried that Michael’s loyalties like with Ramal and not him, Michael causes a lockdown so that Ramal will not be able to escape with them.
Meanwhile Sheba works on procuring plane tickets for everyone out of the country, as well as going with Lincoln to buy fake passports for him and Michael. The passports turn out to be a trap however and the two are captured by a man nicknamed Cyclops, a radical with an ugly history with Sheba. Lincoln is able to break free in time to save Sheba from him, but not before she’s badly beaten.
Back in the US, Bagwell goes to visit Sara and tells her about the prosthetic hand and tries to enlist her aid in finding out what is happening. At first she says no, but then learns that someone has hacked her cell phone, and that Kellerman was behind it and that he’s apparently working with the duo that tried to kill Sara and Lincoln. This convinces her to take Bagwell up on his offer and sends him to question Kellerman.
The blackout happens, but several prisoners, including Abdul, manage to overpower the guards. Abdul realizes that Michael has betrayed him and never intended to escape with him. In the blackout prison, he and several followers race to Michael’s cell. There’s a struggle there and one of Michael’s crew, Sid the gay man, is left behind while the guards are alerted to the escape plan, and Michael and his other friends are caught on the roof.
Michael is put into solitary confinement and with the last bits of battery left on a smuggled cell phone, he records a message for Sara telling her telling how much he loves her and how everything he has done has been for her. He finishes with the statement that he has always been Michael Scofield and not Kaniel Outis.
Up until this point everything was going quite smoothly for Michael so it was inevitable that something would put a spoke in his wheel and complicate matters. Michael has always been one to find a way around complications, but it seems that four years in a Yemen prison has beaten him down.
In many ways this episode felt like the final introductory episode. Yes, there are still questions and mysteries, but now we see the real stakes and now the characters are really going to have to struggle in order to get out of prison (and Yemen!) alive.
