Prison Break Season 5 Episode 3 Review: The Liar

at .

Maybe Michael is going to be spending a longer time in Ogygia than I first anticipated.

On Prison Break Season 5 Episode 3, we got to see his plan come to fruition.

Unfortunately, it was a colossal failure; one that will likely define the rest of his time in prison.

Sheba In Trouble - Prison Break

At the top of the hour, our favorite hero was branded a liar. I can’t be the only one who balked at that comment.

It threw me all the way back to Jacob’s comments about manipulating people on Prison Break Season 5 Episode 2.

Michael tried to fly under the radar, but he found himself in deeper than he ever imagined.

My heart skipped a beat when the group of men was caught on the rooftop.

The daring escape was foiled by everyone having loose lips apparently.

That’s what happens when you try to manipulate everyone for your own gain.

With Michael essentially confirming he was sent there on a mission, it made us think he could be working with Kellerman.

We already knew Kellerman was sketchy as hell, but having Sara followed and subsequently brought back into a dangerous game?

That’s a whole new level of crazy.

Granted, it made for some tense scenes, but I’m so thankful she managed to escape.

That said, how do we know the Kellerman thing is not a red herring and the assassins didn’t force him to say Sara was hacking her own phone?

This show is making me question alliances.

Speaking of those, who would have thought Sara would ever partner with T-Bag? Like, what the heck?

Michael paying for the prosthetic hand probably had something to do with the reformed killer turning to Sara.

Either that or he’s got an ulterior motive. Nothing would really surprise me when it comes to the character.

He did so many despicable things over the years that it’s difficult to tell what’s really going on with him.

My heart hurt for Michael during his emotional video recording for Sara.

However, it was bizarre he didn’t keep it shorter to avoid the phone cutting out before it was over. I’m intrigued to find out what his next move is. 

I'm still not sold on Jacob's intentions. Maybe it's the way this show is set up.

Anyone could be a villain, and the writers want to give the show a good ending this time around, so there's really no room for him in Sara's life. 

I don't think it would be a good ending to have Michael and Sara apart.

In the grand scheme of things, I honestly have no clue whether Michael and Sara would be able to live together as a family. 

Every time something good happens, something bad is just around the corner waiting to rock their relationship.

There are testing times for every couple out there, but Michael and Sara have been through the mill. 

It is interesting to ponder what Sara's life would have been like had Michael not arrived in Fox River all those years ago. Would she still be working there today?

The storyline outside the prison in Yemen continued to be a strong point. I thought Sheba was going to die. Her scenes were brutal, but at least she had Lincoln to save her. 

It's clear that Sheba is getting closer to Lincoln.

At first, she was very against his cause because of the whole Kaniel Outis thing.

She thought she was helping a terrorist until Linc schooled her on how twisted people can be. 

"The Liar" was a fast-paced, solid hour of this Fox drama.

The series has hit its stride, and I can't wait to find out what's coming next.
