Alcatraz continues its first season with tonight’s ninth episode "The Ames Brothers," as Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones), Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia) and Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) race against time to find two former Alcatraz inmates looking to infiltrate the prison and recover a legendary cache of gold.
If you didn't get a chance to check it out for yourself, read on for our Alcatraz recap of "The Ames Brothers"!
When a modern Alcatraz tour gets cut short by an approaching thunderstorm, one man stays behind transfixed, that of Pinky Ames. He flashes back to his time in Alcatraz where he and his brother Herman regularly bullied inmates, and the two corroborate their upcoming plans for a heist that will make them rich.
The present storm also has the effect of playing hell with all the tech used by Doc, as he and Sarah observe one of Hauser’s mysterious eggheads performing some scientific exam up top. Suddenly the technician gets brutally beaten down by Pinky, and when Doc stumbles upon the scene, Herman shows up behind him.
