This is the week that we find out several key bits of information about Lechero: his real name is Norman St. John, he has a real sense of being the people's avenger following his mother's rape by her employer, and he really, really doesn't like cigars.
The cigars in question come from Augusto, who has been using them to try to woo Sammy into his employ. Sammy's not above taking them, but he doesn't like them, so he passes them off to the thug with this hideous metal-up-top-skinhead-on-bottom hairdo. That guy smokes them...and later, he's stabbed because Lechero assumes that he is the one in possible cahoots with Augusto. This stabbing actually serves two purposes: it clears the inner circle of a traitor, and it shows that Lechero has a culprit in Tyge's murder.
Yes, you read that right. Tyge was stabbed. Michael plays Encyclopedia Brown to determine who the non-Whistler killer has to be, except he's really, really bad at it. Bellick says pitiably, "I can't even kill myself." And Mahone...well, Michael tries to pin the crime on Mahone, but Agent Lang (and OH MY GOD, welcome back, Agent Lang!) has come to take him back to the states, so Mahone walks out before anyone can slaughter him.
We also find out that Susan B. Anthony is probably mentally unhinged, since her mood swings all over the place, and she appears to have a weird, weird rapport with L.J.--first confiding the conditions of her very first kidnapping at the hands of enemies in Mosul, but then prepping to decapitate the young man when Linc lets slip that the timetable he and Michael are working on for the escape is much different than what she thinks it is. L.J. is going to need years of therapy to deal with the events of the last six months in Prison Break time.
And yeah, Linc lets slip that Michael's busting out during the day. He doesn't have much to do this episode except sweat a lot, drug a guard and tell Michael that Dr. Sara's been killed.
How does Michael take the news? Not well. He attempts to get through all five stages of grief in a two-minute musical montage, but he's still stuck on the anger part, and lashes out...by concluding that Whistler is responsible for Dr. Sara's death and throwing down the chicken foot.
The episode opens with Splenda playing basketball in the courtyard, then quickly flashes to Sammy pushing some ZZ Top-looking guy against a pillar and demanding a ring. Then he turns around and offers the ring to Lechero. Awww -- there's a jewelry market begging to be addressed: Show him you'd be his thug all over again. Every killing begins with K. Lechero declines the bauble, so Sammy pockets it.
Splenda has the bad luck to have a stray shot knock over a refuse bin right as Lechero walks on. T-Bag immediately drops to his knees and begins cleaning, but Lechero calls him off: he'll take the opportunity to have a little one-on-one time with Splenda. It's the little things, like personally scaring the pants off the young man, that make him a leader and success. Anyway, Splenda scampers off and Lechero notices something amid the refuse. We don't get to see what it is, but Lechero decides to pocket it for later.
Inside the prison, Michael has scampered over to introduce himself to the shirtless Tyge. It's not because he's hoping for workout tips: Michael wants dirt on Whistler. Tyge explains that no, Whistler was not an ambassador: "The Ambassador. I was concierge at the Ambassador hotel [in Nice]. I could have sworn he worked there for a few months. Who the hell knows, huh? I was high half the time. Kind of why I got fired. Kind of why I'm in here." As Tyge walks off, Michael asks what Whistler was up to in Nice. Tyge declines to say, snarking, "What? You writing a book?" He saunters off, presumably to do more crunches.
Michael heads off to consult with Whistler. Escape time is in three hours, 41 minutes. Whistler frets about how they've got no way out of no-man's land. Michael's all, "On it," and Whistler reminds him that "your gravedigger friend's only sprayed it once. I'd just as soon not get electrocuted today." Mahone looks up from his perch in the corner right as Michael says, "Would it be better if Sucre sprayed the fence again? Yes. Is that an option? No." Mahone says thoughtfully that maybe Sucre needs another reason to be there. Whistler asks, "What are you going to do? Kill someone to get more spray on the fence?" Mahone grits, "I'd think about killing you if it helped us get out of here today." Michael glares and reminds both men that honestly, bodies are a lot less useful than a ladder would be, so shut up and start working on that.
In the next scene, we see that Whistler's just bought a hammock off an inmate, and he hands it off to Mahone, commenting that it's shorter than the last one. "We might need something to extend it," Mahone says absently; he's busy watching Tyge in the courtyard below. Whistler promises, "I'll take care of it." Mahone then steers the conversation to Tyge, saying, "I don't care if this guy knows you or not. What I do care about is his apparent fixation with watching you at all times." Whistler and Mahone both stare at Tyge, and then Whistler bundles up his hammock and makes to leave, saying, "We'll be out of here soon enough. He won't be a problem then."
