Alcatraz 1.11 "Webb Porter" Recap - The Music Man

Alcatraz continues its first season with tonight’s eleventh episode "Webb Porter," as Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones), Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia) and Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) race against time to find a former inmate (Rami Malek) whose kidnapping crimes have to do with his obsession with playing the violin. If you didn't get a chance to check it out for yourself, read on for our Alcatraz recap of "Webb Porter"! Doc follows Hauser as the mysterious agent spends some time at an Eastern medicine practice, downing a handful of pills while noting that he "wasn’t always like this," as we flash back to 1960 in his recitation of philosophy to Dr. Sangupta (Parminder Nagra).  They part ways as Sangupta travels to the island, and Warden James gives her her next assignment to find a way to introduce inmate Webb Porter into the general population.  Sangupta almost instantly deduces that Porter has tinnitus from his mother attempting to drown him as a boy, and theorizes that she can use music to socialize him.

Alcatraz Review: The Sound of Music

Finally, everyone is on the same page. Sort of. Rebecca and Diego not only became privy to the colloidal silver in the blood info, but they also discovered Lucy appearing in an old video taken at the Alcatraz prison over fifty years ago. That's right, Lucy is a '63! Which I'm sure is huge news for them because that verifies that Emerson has been keeping secrets. Although, to be fair, Emerson has pretty much always kept secrets. He's not really an open book when it comes to his reappearing prisoners or certainly with his matters of the heart. Should they really be surprised that he's kept everything hush hush?

'Alcatraz' Recap: Symphony in the Key of Death

If I have learned anything from movies and TV shows, it is that being a musical savant is dangerous. In the movie Shine , Geoffrey Rush's character became so obsessed with the piano that he was committed into an asylum. Carrying on in this great tradition, we meet an inmate who take this music obsession one step further. //www.buddytv.com/articles/alcatraz/alcatraz-recap-symphony-in-the-44581.aspx

Alcatraz “Webb Porter” Review

Alcatraz  returned tonight with "Webb Porter", and introduced us to one of the creepiest villains we’ve seen on this show to date. There’s just something about musicians , isn’t there? The way Porter maniacally played his violin, and the haunting song was intercut with him forcing the poor girl into her own bathtub, was one of the most  chilling scenes we’ve had on this show thus far. After having our first  duo of 63s two weeks ago, and our first African-American 63 last week, this week’s episode had another first: Our first  escaped  63. I don’t think this revelation had the same impact they were going for, though, as we never knew about any other 63s that were captured before Madsen and Soto were on the team. However, it was nice to finally have an inmate on the loose that Diego didn’t recognize immediately. It always bugged me how he always identified the escapees immediately.
