Prison Break is taking a week off so Jack Bauer can wreak havoc on twice as many terrorists as usual. You Prison Break fans may be upset about the double Hour of Bauer tonight, but, seriously, the safety of the world may depend upon it. Let's take a look at the levels of importance our protagonists face on the two serial FOX dramas. Prison Break is about escaped convicts being hunted down. The lives of thousands do not hang in the balance. If Michael and Linc were to be caught, the world keeps on spinning, no one's lives are lost. If Jack Bauer were to be shut down somehow, there is a distinct possibility that the universe would explode.
And that's why FOX has to air two 24 episodes tonight. Prison Break comes back next week with a brand new episode, and we have some glorious spoilers for you all. They come from Isabelle of SpoilerFix, who is to spoilers what Richards is to torture. Check the spoilers out below.
Episode 2.17: Bad Blood

In Chicago, Michael and Sara seek out Pope (Stacy Keach) after their first attempt to get at the evidence in Gov. Tancredi's cigar-club humidor is thwarted. In Minneapolis, Mahone closes in on C-Note and an ailing Dede. In Alabama, T-Bag takes the Hollanders to his boyhood home and makes an offer to Susan. And in Mexico, Sucre must hitchhike to his rendezvous with Maricruz at the Ixtapa airport after running out of gas. He gets a ride easily enough---with an airport security guard.
