Sucre and Abruzzi continue the drilling work on the wall separating general population from the old sewer line. Lincoln tries to make his way back to general to find Michael, but is ambushed by a killer hired to ensure he dies in prison one way or another.

Micheal says holes will be have to be drilled at the tip of the devils horns, the eyes, the nose, tip of the fangs and end of the braids. When we see Sucre drilling at the fangs two holes at the eyes are clearly visible, but there is no hole at nose. Meaning either the film team forgot about it or it's deliberate, implying that Sucre forgot about it. Either way the wall should at the very least be more difficult to bring down when the drilling is done. See more »

The Chaos Continues
24 February 2015 | by RbDerajSee all my reviews

As the turmoil is still not resolved, Michael goes off by himself to save Dr. Sara Tancredi. While he is away Abruzzi and Sucre drill the final holes in the wall which breaks away into a man sized gap. The Governor steps in with state military personnel to finish the job and get the prison back under control. The intensity and excitement of this episode was very high with lives at risk of the doctor and Lincoln (when a hit was attempted to be carried out on him). Once again there were many unforeseen problems but in the end the goal of drilling through the wall was accomplished. Great episode to finish the last cliffhanger.
