10 corrected entries in season 2

(3 votes)

Rendezvous - S2-E10

Corrected entry: Linc and LJ are saved by Linc's father's people near Wilcox, Arizona. They are taken to Linc's father in Trinidad, Colorado. It is shown as taking only a short while, and the other events have not come very far during the transportation. Sarah is still getting ready to meet Michael. However, Wilcox to Trinidad is a 10 hour drive.

Jacob La Cour

Correction: Showing two different characters time lines is hardly a mistake, Sara and Link don't meet up here. If they had met it would be a mistake, but they don't. This is common practice in storytelling where a group is separated.


Otis - S2-E2

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bellick is about to commit suicide, his mother yells that there is a reward on the Fox River Eight. When Bellick replies, he is speaking very low, almost whispering, but his mother seems to hear him loud and clear. (00:34:00 - 00:35:55)

Correction: I don't see it that way. I know that houses like his with hardwood floors amplify sound, also the dramatic music is playing, so you don't realize that the house could be dead quiet, also she is right on the other side of the door. Also she is old, she most likely has a hearing aid. Those things are powerful although I understand that last part is a bit of a stretch, none the less...plausible.


Rendezvous - S2-E10

Corrected entry: While Sara and Michael are running around the factory getting chased by Mahone, Paul Kellerman is seen in Wilcox Arizona. Sara and Michael go to their hotel in Gila New Mexico. Michael takes a bath and Sara leaves. When she steps out of the car Paul is there. How did he cover the 130 miles from Wilcox to Gila in that time?

Jacob La Cour

Correction: The exact passing of time is never shown, only that it's still daytime, and that he took a shower and some time passed, its very possible/plausible that 3-4 hours passed...even if it was only 2 hours, 130 miles is easily do-able on the interstate driving 70/mph. Not to mention he is on an important time sensitive mission, he would be speeding whenever possible, I'm sure he isn't worried about tickets. Being a secret service agent and all.

Rendezvous - S2-E10

Corrected entry: When Mahoney is locked in the cage, you can see that both sides of the cage door have key locks, but when William Kim comes to rescue him, William magically has the key. (00:13:20 - 00:33:40)

Correction: While locked in the cage, Alex called Kellerman but instead Bill Kim was sent to pick him up. So he not only knew where he was locked up at, but had plenty of time to get a key.


Rendezvous - S2-E10

Corrected entry: Sarah bandages Michael's left arm, then he emerges from a shower with his right arm bandaged.

Correction: It is his reflection in the mirror.

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: Season 2, Episode 10: T-Bag is linked to the heater when the cops start knocking on the door. He goes down to bite his hand off, and has completed that and gotten away before the cops enter. How long were they knocking on that door?!

Jacob La Cour

Correction: They also had to break in in order to enter. Lawful minimum time before they can do that is, I believe, around 10 minutes. Time compression was used, and that time seems sufficient.

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: In the episode "Chicago" Sarah tries to kill Kellerman, and when Linc tries to stop Sarah at his right there is a camera in Kellerman's face. (00:16:30)

Correction: That's not a camera. Run the scene in slow motion again, that's Kellerman's hand holding a gun.

Rendezvous - S2-E10

Corrected entry: While being chased through the warehouse by Agent Mahone, Michael cuts his left arm. In the hotel room, Sarah consequently cleans and bandages his left arm. However, when Michael returns from the bathroom in the next scene, his right arm is bandaged.

Correction: When you see Michael walk out of the bathroom he is looking in a mirror, this is why his opposite arm is bandaged.

Manhunt - S2-E1

Corrected entry: How did the FBI get the photo of Michael's tattoo? Michael would not have wanted anyone to have a photo of it in case they figured out his plan, and also the only photo they would take for prison would be a mugshot of his head.

Correction: The tattoo artist tells the agents when interviewed that Michael was incredibly specific and designed the whole thing himself, which would have been a difficult task for a tattoo artist, having not worked on any preliminary sketches. This, coupled with the fact that a tattoo artist's portfolio is made of photos of their work, would mean that the artist would most certainly take detailed pictures. This is standard practice for custom work, and anything large or intricate. If Michael had refused, he may have alerted suspicion, and it also may have been an agreement with the artist that they would only do the work if it could go in their portfolio. Plus photographs of tattoos are taken as part of the identification process during various stages of being incarcerated. The FBI could have gotten the photographs from any number of sources within Department of Corrections or Chicago Police.

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: The rewards offered for the Fox River 8 are not proportionate, and do not make sense. I understand that Lincoln has the highest reward, but characters like Abruzzi and T-Bag should have had much higher rewards than the likes of Michael, C-Note, Tweener and Sucre.

Correction: Unless there is evidence to prove otherwise than it is simply the characters' decision. There is no law or rule in the judicial system that states what reward should be set for every individual. For Abruzzi and T-Bag it could be that FBI had more idea where they might headed (Abruzzi wanting to kill Fibernocci and T-Bag obsessed with his former girlfriend) and also because they were more dangerous perhaps more agents were pursuing as compared to the other 4 inmates.

Actually, Michael's reward should also be higher than most (except maybe Lincoln and Abruzzi) since he's the mind behind the escape, so you can almost be sure, he knows where the others are hidden because he planned it. If they are on their own, their plan won't be as brilliant as his, so they would be easier to find. T-Bag shouldn't be that high, you just need to protect the girl.
