Storyline

The execution of Lincoln is delayed for two weeks because Judge Kessler anonymously receives new evidences about the case, while Lincoln glances to his father in the observation room. Judge Kessler orders the exhumation of the remains of Terrance Steadman based on two different records about a removed appendix. Lincoln asks the name of the man in the room to Warden Pope and he tells that he is the journalist William Prall, from the Headline Press. Michael plots another escape plan through the asylum using the blueprint tattooed on his body. He borrows a guard's uniform from Sucre's cousin that works in the laundry to check his plan, but he burns his body on the steam piping; after a medical intervention, Michael finds that the part of the map with the escape route through the asylum is missing on his burnt back.

Goofs

A young Lincoln and his father attend a batting practice for the Chicago Cubs. His father speaks of a relief pitcher who played for the Cubs, William Prall. Prall is wearing number 11, but in reality, Prall, who actually played for the Cubs in 1975, wore number 37. Don Kessinger, an Golden Glove shortstop, wore number 11 from 1964-1975. The real Prall was also left-handed; the flashback depicts Prall as a right-hander. See more »

The Exhumation and the Lost Blueprint
4 October 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The execution of Lincoln is delayed for two weeks because Judge Kessler anonymously receives new evidences about the case while Lincoln glances to his father in the observation room. Judge Kessler orders the exhumation of the remains of Terrance Steadman based on two different records about a removed appendix. Lincoln asks the name of the man in the room to Warden Pope and he tells that he is the journalist William Prall, from the Headline Press. Michael plots another escape plan through the asylum using the blueprint tattooed on his body. He borrows a guard's uniform from Sucre's cousin that works in the laundry to check his plan, but her burns his body on the steam piping; after a medical intervention, Michael finds that the part of the map with the escape route through the asylum is missing on his burnt back.

This episode is only reasonable when compared with the previous ones. Steadman's dental record was changed and the coroner goes nowhere with the exhumation. Michael will have unexpected problems with his new plan. The appearance of the missing father of Lincoln and Michael is the new mystery. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Adiamento" ("The Delay")
