Michael, T-Bag, Bellick and Mahone are incarcerated at Sona penitentiary in Panama. Michael is forced to perform in a fight to the death with another inmate. He beats him, but refuses to kill him. Mahone rescues Michael by killing the inmate after the inmate breaks the rules by brandishing a shank. Bellick has become the lowest type of prisoner, and befriends another low prisoner, who is later killed after attempting to escape. Meanwhile, outside prison, the Company wishes Michael to break out another inmate, James Whistler (Chris Vance). At first he refuses, until he learns through Lincoln that they have kidnapped L.J and Sara to get him to cooperate.

Meanwhile, a scuffle leads to the loss of Sona’s water supply, where other prisoners start a revolt, and T-Bag slithers his way into Lechero’s graces. Sucre buys a gun and forces Bellick to tell him where Maricruz is, who actually returned to the US. He later finds out the hard way that he cannot see her again. Lincoln offers him a job to assist Michael to break Whistler out, but declines. Mahone is able to find Whistler in order to get out of Sona. However, Michael manages to return Sona’s water supply. The bounty on Whistler’s head is dropped.

After Michael admits he has no idea how to break Whistler out, he asks Lincoln to find Sara and L.J. Michael blackmails T-Bag to get Lechero’s phone, where the Company allows Sara to call Michael. She gives him vital clues on her location, and Lincoln is able to find them. However, the Company escapes from the hideout before he could rescue them. Whistler tells Michael that the Company wants him out of prison, so they could force him to find someone. Bellick manages to get up the ladder again, and is no longer a low inmate.

In the process, he reactivates the Electric fence. Bellick’s attempt to expose Michael’s escape plan backfires. Lincoln and Sofia, Whistler’s girlfriend plan to pay Sona’s gravedigger to work for him, but is killed by Susan after he could not be trusted. Sucre manages to replace him, and uses a chemical to melt the electric fence as part of Michael’s escape plan.

With only a day until their deadline, Michael plans to break out during the day, since escape at night would be impossible.

Lincoln and Sofia join forces.
