In tonight’s episode of Prison Break, Michael and company stage a little scene at the racetrack. Bellick places a bet, then immediately tells the person behind the counter that she got it wrong. He causes such a commotion that the Operations Manager comes out of his office to get him to calm down and Michael takes the opportunity to sneak into his office. It turns out they’re searching for the 4th card holder of Scylla, who happens to be spending the day at the races with his wife. Lincoln fixes the race so that the horse the man bet on gets off to a slow start and he heads inside to complain, just as Michael wanted. As the man heads in the office of the Operations Manager, the device has been planted and Roland downloads the data to his computer. Unfortunately, as Michael and everyone head out, Mahone gets stopped by a security guard and punches him, resulting in his arrest.
Lincoln calls Don, telling him to get Mahone out of the police station and back in the warehouse with them. Though Mahone is using a fake alias, his cover will be blown when the cops run his prints. Meanwhile, Gretchen has escaped from the hands of Wyatt and made it to her sister’s house, who immediately takes her in and lets her clean up. She asks for a ceramic owl she once sent her from Germany, busts it open, and grabs the gun and credit cards inside before heading back out. The General decides to send Wyatt out to grab some info from Don, who is busy trying to bail Mahone out of jail.
Unfortunately, the LAPD isn’t so willing to give him up so Don makes him sign over his personal effects so that he can bring the device back to the warehouse and everyone can continue collecting the Scylla data cards. In a parking garage, Wyatt catches up with Don to warn him to leave The General alone. Michael stresses about leaving Mahone in prison but Sara tries to assure him that if the tables were turned, he would not be so quick to help him. Wyatt goes to the station, making sure that Mahone sees him, and finds out where and when his court date will be.
There is a huge revelation when we find out that Gretchen’s sister’s daughter is actually hers. She is not capable of taking care of her, nor was she ever, and she’s not about to start now. At Mahone’s hearing, Wyatt walks through the door, just as he said he would. Gretchen goes to retrieve information about a man that she claims is her dead husband and when an employee won’t give it to her, she assaults him. Sara shows up at the courthouse posing as Mahone’s lawyer and Lincoln cuts the lights. Sucre and Sara get him out of there before Wyatt can track him down. Gretchen tracks down T-Bag at Cole’s apartment, knocks him to the ground, and asks him with a gun to his face who the hell he is.
