Preview: Prison Break's Shocking Season Finale!

Michael Scofield has been here before — almost. The first season of Fox's Prison Break (Mondays at 8 pm/ET, Fox) culminated in the tattooed hero's carefully planned escape from an American penitentiary, but this season, the stakes have been raised: Can Michael (played by Wentworth Miller) bust the mysterious Whistler out of Sona, the hellish Panamanian jail, along with a crew of backstabbing inmates — and rescue his nephew at the same time? And is delivering Whistler to The Company's diabolical agent Susan B. Anthony really going to save anyone? "It is taking all my wherewithal to keep from spilling the beans," says Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, who plays Susan. The season's 13th and (possibly) final episode, airing tonight, ratchets up the action in true Prison Break fashion — by toying mercilessly with its charread more

Prison Break Returns: Upcoming Secrets Revealed!

Even by Prison Break (Mondays, 8 pm/ET, Fox) standards, the plot twist that brought the fall mini-season to a close in November was a stunner. The seemingly saintly Whistler (Chris Vance), whom Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) had been trying to free from jail since the start of the season, appeared to be in cahoots with mysterious villain Susan (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). The Whistler bombshell, coupled with the shortage of new programming due to the writers' strike, makes Prison Break's Jan. 14 return all the more enticing. A five-episode run (possibly more if the strike is resolved soon) will give audiences their escapist fix well into February sweeps. read more

I have been a fan of Prison ...

Question: I have been a fan of Prison Break since it began. It was a show that had me on edge, especially last season. I think Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell play their characters well and I have had a love/hate relationship with some of the other characters as well. But after the tasteless act of having Lincoln find Sara's head in a box, I wonder where this show is really going. And what are these rumors about a possible Prison Break spin-off, with one of the new characters and set at a women's prison? I personally feel that Prison Break should have ended last season, with Michael and Lincoln being exonerated and Lincoln living happily ever after with his Doc. I know years ago shows would go on for five to 10 years, but nowadays, some shows just don't have the lifespan or storylines to carry into that timeframe. I think after this season, we should let go of this story and just let it be. It should have ended last year on top, but I feel like it's spiraling out of control. What ... read more
