John Abruzzi's boss has grown impatient over the non-appearance of the witness Fibonacci, and has withdrawn financial support from his jailed capo. This, in turn, has led Bellick to remove Abruzzi from work duty, since the guard's monthly payment from Falzone has stopped coming. Without work duty, no more progress can be made on the escape, and the next group to enter the storage room is certain to find the gaping hole in the floor. On the outside, the Secret Service agents are closing in on LJ through his telephone signal, and he inadvertently directs them toward the cabin that Veronica and Nick are hiding in. To save LJ, Lincoln needs to break out. But for that to happen, Michael must sacrifice Fibonacci, an innocent witness, to a ruthless mafia boss.
