The seventeenth episode of Prison Break?s season two called "Bad Blood" has garnered views that are "worlds apart." Having an "either you like it or you don?t" point of view has sparked much controversy over the said episode.
Prison Break, an action-thriller drama series, follows a man who was sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit and his brother?s intricate schemes to help him escape. With an award for People?s Choice for favorite new TV drama in 2006 and numerous nominations, the stimulating suspense-filled plot remains to be an anticipated feature of the certified cliffhanger series.
Prison Break?s "Bad Blood" is mostly centered on the surfacing of character revelations which entails changing of allegiances and eye-opening secrets.
Moreover, the said episode makes the viewers question their beliefs and primary perception of the characters.
For a good number of viewers, "Bad Blood" appears to be cleverly plotted and extremely satisfying, specifically pertaining to the kick-ass moves of Lincoln (played by Dominic Purcell) on Agent Kim (played by Reggie Lee), the cute conversations of Sarah (played by Sarah Wayne Callies) and Michael (played by Wenthworth Miller) and the huge twist on the plot of T-Bag (played by Robert Knepper), not to mention the emotion-stirring reunion of Michael and the former warden, Henry Hope (played by Stacy Keach), who was previously perceived as his father figure. And although the episode was quite long with a bit of conflicting segments, the plot was still considered as well written, having a lot of unexpected and dynamic moments.
On the other hand, there are also a handful of viewers who deem the installment as just "safe" and a little dull compared to other episodes, which send viewers on the edge of their seats. A negative feature of the segment is the falling out of character of Mahone (William Fichtner), which for some caused the downfall of "Bad Blood," not to mention C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) and his daughter DeeDee?s struggles.
