Trying to chronicle all the twists and turns over four seasons of “Prison Break” would take way too long, so suffice it to say that it’s been quite a ride since Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) first got himself sent to the pokey.
The FOX show has its series finale on Friday, and Michael has one final sticky situation to get out of: His mom (the deliciously over-the-top Kathleen Quinlan) is holding his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) hostage, while T-Bag (Robert Knepper) and the General (Leon Russom) have Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies). Of course, both sides want the same thing — Scylla — and they’re both promising a world of hurt if Michael doesn’t deliver.
How’s it all going to end? I have no idea, beyond what executive producer Matt Olmstead told reporters last month — that the last scenes of the finale will jump ahead a few years and show where the characters end up now that their ordeal is behind them.
For now, we offer up the following look at Friday’s two-hour finale, with Christina and Michael negotiating terms for the Lincoln-Scylla exchange.
What do you think? Are you psyched for the finale?
