Season 2 Episode 13 – “Escape Proof”

A mysterious tunneling vehicle leaves a worker trapped in its wake and it’s up to Gordon and Virgil to free him. Parker and Penelope meanwhile track down the digger and discover The Mechanic at the controls.

On the trail of the Mechanic, Lady Penelope and Parker stumble upon a massive tunnel starting in an abandoned building. Cries for help deep within tell them someone is trapped inside it.

Virgil and Gordon take a Pod into the tunnel where they discover a worker pinned inside the wreckage of an adjacent building. While they begin excavation, Lady Penelope and Parker take FAB 1 deeper into the tunnel. Here they find The Mechanic is using a powerful vehicle known as the ANT-LION to dig his way beneath Parkmoor Scrubs Prison.

The Hood’s Escape plan

The Hood and his entire cell are swallowed whole. Once the Hood has been released, the Antlion races back out the same way it came in, with FAB 1 caught in front of it.

Virgil meanwhile must hurry to free the worker from a tangled web of pipes and wires before the Ant-Lion smashes through them.

Just as everyone makes it to the surface and the Antlion selfdestructs, the Mechanic and Hood part company on unfriendly terms.
