Meanwhile, Dr. Sara has a micro-cry, then gets out of the car with her hands already in the air. Lang begins reciting the Miranda. Mahone pulls up, muttering, "Son of a bitch," then stalks over to Dr. Sara. He asks, "Where is he?" Dr. Sara says she doesn't know. Mahone says, "No more games -- you were on your way to see him." Dr. Sara replies, "No, I wasn't." Mahone asks skeptically, "You were just compelled to flee the custody of a federal agent?" Dr. Sara declines to reply.
Back on the ship, Michael scurries abovedecks to report to Lincoln that he couldn't find Dr. Sara. The two of them are still looking at the docks -- because they'd like to take one last look at the country they're leaving for good? -- and that's when they notice all the police cruisers streaking by with their lights on. Michael's first reflex is to jump ship and go after Sara. It falls to Linc to be the voice of reason. I imagine this must come as a shock to them both.
We flash back to Mahone, who asks, "Scofield or prison?" Dr. Sara replies petulantly, "I just wanted a donut, sir." Mahone checks the empty store. Then he turns to some hapless underling and snaps, "Get her a donut. Can we get her a donut? Get her a dozen donuts! Lock her up!"
And then we're back to the ship, where Michael is bent over the rail in agony. Linc claps him once on the shoulders, and we see the ship pull away. Perhaps it's sailing toward Season Three, which will likely include another prison break of some sort. I imagine it might be harder for either Michael or Linc to pull off another get-into-prison-to-break-out-of-it number in a ladies' jail, though.
Commercials. I believe the movie Shooter has found its natural constituency with this show.
When we come back, we learn that it's one week later. We cut to Mahone, who has apparently dealt with his most recent professional setback by watching Se7en and using it as an inspiration for his own interior decorating projects. He sits on the floor and stares bleakly at a wall decoupaged with mug shots, graphs, charts, maps and other exhibits associated with the manhunt.
The madness of Agent Mahone has finally produced the closest thing this show has to a timeline: they broke out on May 27. On May 28, Michael and Linc attempted to bust L.J. out of jail in Chicago. On May 29, Abruzzi visited D.C.; on May 30, he was killed. On June 1, Tweener was killed. By June 3, Steadman had blown his brains out at the Cutback Motel, and on June 5, Haywire took his last leap. However, Mahone has no idea where Michael disappeared after June 7. He stares at the blank calendar and mutters as much. I am also staring at the calendar uncomprehendingly, but for entirely different reasons.
