If you want to avoid spoilers for Prison Break season 5, we suggest you stop reading now. If you don’t mind then please keep reading for a recap of episode 6 and a preview of episode 7.
The episode began with Michael and the gang hiding out in another abandoned building. ISIS were still patrolling outside and Ja (Rick Yune) was getting nervous. Michael said they would get out of the country. Linc (Dominic Purcell) suggested going to see Omar for help.
Meanwhile, A&W (Marina Benedict) and Van Gogh (Steve Mouzakis) made bail and were released. They viewed the video of Ramal’s death and realised that Michael had escaped. They confirmed that their mission was to find and kill Kaniel Outis/Michael.
Back in Yemen, the gang tracked down Omar who was loading a truck to flee. He was going to head to Phaeacia. He said if they got his other vehicle they could go with him. He told them the battery might be dead. The gang left Whip (Augustus Prew) behind while they went for the vehicle.
They were prepared to push the car but found it worked fine. Realising it was a trap they all jumped inside as an ISIS vehicle entered the parking garage and opened fire. Linc managed to get them outside and they headed back to Omar and Whip.
There they found he had knocked Whip out and tied him up. Linc managed to grab Omar before he could flee. A freed Whip wanted to kill Omar and punched him several times in the face. Omar said he was their map to Phaeacia so they kept him alive. Whip promised he couldn’t wait to kill him. They left in the two vehicles with Whip travelling with Omar.
Back with the FBI, Agent Kishida was getting settled in Kellerman’s office. He was spotted briefly last episode talking to A&W and Van Gogh. His new boss came in to ask for Kellerman’s files on 21 Void. He told here there wasn’t much to go on. She tasked him with looking into it because there could be a mole on the inside.
As soon as she left he called A&W and Van Gogh. He asked for an update on the situation in the Middle East and she promised one soon. It was then revealed that A&W’s real name was Emily and she worked at the NSA for 10 years. Following the call from Kishida she paid a visit to an old NSA friend for help finding Kaniel Outis.
Back in Yemen, Whip wondered why Omar had a car full of fireworks. His temper seemed to be getting worse. Ja contemplated taking some more pills but Michael asked him to keep clean for now. Ja’s phone went and it was Sheba (Inbar Lavi) for Linc. She revealed she was in Jordan waiting on a flight to the US with C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) and the rescued girls.
The phone call alerted the NSA who were tracking C-Note’s phone. They tracked the person he was calling and realised it was probably Kaniel Outis as the location was Sana’a, Yemen. They dispatched a drone which found the vehicles.
The cars stopped for fuel and Michael popped inside to use the Internet. He made a video call to someone called Blue Hawaii. The video wasn’t working on his end but he had the mysterious man take a photo of him and his tattoos.
Meanwhile, Van Gogh made a call to one of Ramal’s terrorists and gave up the location of the vehicles. They immediately geared up and prepared to head out but not before telling Cyclops (Amin El Gamal) he wasn’t going with them. Instead he hijacked a car and followed alone.
The terrorists showed up and the drone spotted them. The NSA wondered how they had found the gang. As they opened fire, Whip used their only bullet to shoot out a gas truck. It exploded and took out all the attackers.
During the fight, Omar took a bullet but they didn’t have time to lose so fled as Cyclops arrived. He inspected the site of the explosion and found his fellow terrorists dead or dying. A short while later the gang had to stop because Omar had died.
After burying Omar they came under fire again from Cyclops. They fled in the vehicles and Cyclops followed. The NSA shut the drone operation down and asked A&W and Van Gogh to leave. Outside they wondered what Michael was doing inside the gas station.
Michael and the gang stopped and realised Cyclops was just able to follow their tracks. Michael used binoculars and saw Cyclops had brought more fuel and was topping up. Michael decided to siphon the gas from one vehicle to the other. He had a plan for most of them to take one vehicle while someone drove the other in a different direction to confuse Cyclops.
He had them pick rocks to see who was the unlucky person to drive solo. Michael picked the white rock which meant he would have to go solo. Linc wasn’t happy but Michael said he would find them after taking Cyclops out.
When Cyclops caught Michael up he realised there was now only one vehicle. Michael wondered how to get out of his situation as he was low on fuel. He retreated into some large rocks to try and lose Cyclops. Cyclops followed Michael’s car until it stopped and discovered it was empty. Michael had placed a rock on the accelerator.
While Cyclops checked out the car, Michael appeared and tried to make off with his pursuer’s car. Cyclops opened fire so Michael fled after grabbing a screwdriver. As Cyclops came closer Michael jumped on him and stabbed him with the tool. They fought and Michael put the screwdriver through the good eye of Cyclops. As he screamed in pain he managed to stab Michael back before he escaped.
Meanwhile, Linc was lost until Ja spotted some gulls which he thought must be headed to the sea. They followed them and found their destination where they were warmly greeted. The people were disappointed to find Omar was not with them.
Back in the US, A&W and Van Gogh somehow traced Michael’s Internet call to Blue Hawaii. They turned up at a mansion in Portland, Maine. Inside they found an Elvis impersonator who invited them inside.
Michael was in a bad way and struggling to find Linc’s tracks. He had to go on foot when the car died. He was about to give up and fell down and saw flashbacks to his past. Suddenly the sky lit up with fireworks and Linc shouted for his brother.
At the end of the episode, Linc seemed ready to give up when suddenly Michael appeared and collapsed in front of him. He desperately needed a doctor but there wasn’t one for 300 miles.
