Trivia

When Sucre is in Mexico and gets caught by the police and afterwards he is rewarded by the owner of the car he had stolen this is a direct (maybe not deliberate) connection with Victor Hugo's famous novel 'Les Misérables'. See more »

Goofs

It is 829 miles from Helena, MT to Denver, CO and 770 miles from Great Fall, MT to Denver, CO. In this episode they state they have about 450 miles to get to Denver from a point between Helena and Great Falls. A little more research should be done by the writers sometimes. See more »

A Giant Setup?

In Cutback, Montana, Kellerman lures the police and Michael and Lincoln abduct the cameraman Greg of Fox News and succeed in escaping from the siege. Michael and Lincoln decide to tape a message to be released in the Breaking News. Mahone is back in Chicago and analyzing the message; he interrogates Greg and he tells that he had overheard Michael tell that they should cover 460 miles in six hours.

In Algoma, Winsconsin, Haywire befriends a young couple and the girl has bruises on her arm; she tells that her abusive drunken father uses to beat her.

"The Message" is the weakest episode of the second season of "Prison Break". The situation of Haywire is silly; Sucre has a lesson of life in a corny and unbelievable part of the plot; the exaggerated cleverness of Mahone is irritating and they guy forgot that he was shot in the two last episodes. How could a statement like the message of Michael and Lincoln be simply suppressed without any consequence? Is Kellerman plotting a giant setup to Michael, Lincoln and Sara? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Mensagem" ("The Message")
