A pipe has derailed the escape the first time around, this means that the inmates have to get back to their cells fast and unnoticed. Michael makes one last chance to delay the execution for three weeks (giving him enough time to plan another route) by putting a rat into a transformer. However, Tweener was forced to rat Michael out to Bellick and the execution date stayed as it is. Like Veronica and Nick, Sara was trying to get her father to grant Linc clemency. Those two attempts weren’t enough as Lincoln was just moments away from execution.
