Alas, Miller's run ...
Fox's Prison Break wrapped up its four-year run (and run, and run, and run...) on Friday night, as Michael finally decided into whose hands he could entrust Scylla. Along the way, a pair of familiar faces resurfaced, justice was meted out, and, in a four-year flash-forward, a variety of fates were revealed.
It was during that epilogue that the producers uncorked one final — and fatal — twist. If you have finished watching the two-hour series-ender, read on for executive producer Matt Olmstead's answers to the burning questions you likely have.
The nosebleeds can no longer be ignored.
Since almost the start of this season and this Ocean's 11-like caper being orchestrated by Michael and the Fox River Remnants, stalwart Scofield has been plagued by intermittent nosebleeds. Thus far, Linc has taken notice, and he obviously suspects what the cause might be, having seen his younger brother exhibit the same symptoms when he was 11.
Those with good memories recall that Michael's mother was felled by cancer when he was a kid. Perhaps her son has been in remission with his own form of the stubborn disease?
Get the scoop on when the mystery will be solved, after the jump. Plus: Wentworth Miller weighs in on the prospect of Michael dying at the end of the series.
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 char
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.
