After ending it’s five season run seven years ago, Fox is bringing its hit series, “Prison Break”, back on the air. The last time we saw the Fox River gang, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) died in attempt to get Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne-Callies) out of a prison. Where has the series picked up from now?


Seven years later

Seven years after “The Final Break”, Michael Scofield is revealed to be alive and well… maybe not well as he is in a prison in Ogygia. Sarah has a son, named Michael, and a new significant other. The rest of the gang is scattered.


Where has the new season begun?

So far, three episodes of the series have aired, but let’s focus on the season premiere: “Ogygia”. What has happened in this premiere episode?



After a strange opening with Michael saying that “the dead talk” and some of them are real and others are stories, we see T-Bag, or Theodore Bagwell, in Fox River Penitentiary.

Just a recap, seven years ago, Michael Scofield, Lincoln Burrows, Fernando Sucre, Bradley Bellick, Alexander Mahone, and Sarah Tancredi all were looking for Scylla, something that could take an organization called “The Company” down. Scofield’s mother worked for The Company and his father worked to stop it. Upon finding Scylla, Paul Kellerman had the aforementioned characters, excluding the then deceased Bradley Bellick, but also including Benjamin “C-Note” Franklin in on these deals. The people above refused to let T-Bag get an immunity deal like they did and T-Bag was sent to Fox River.

Here we are seven years later and it appears as though someone has paid to have Bagwell released. He takes a wallet, some gum, a laptop, and a folder out with him. When he opens the folder he finds paperwork inside and is surprised by it.


Lincoln Burrows

We now see that Lincoln has, according to one of the crooks chasing him, gone back to being what he was “a crook who can’t pay his debts.”

Bagwell is on Lincoln’s deck, he offers up the file folder he had. Lincoln threatens to kill Bagwell, who seems interested in the photo of Michael Scofield inside the folder and says that they are still on the same road.  Lincoln forces Bagwell out before keeping the file.


Sara Tancredi

Lincoln heads to meet Sara Tancredi. Sara is now remarried, she has a son named after his biological father, Michael and they live in a new house. Sara greets Lincoln, stating that he never came to the wedding. Lincoln apologies for that, then he offers up a possible lead on Michael.

Lincoln leaves and is run off the road by some people. They attempt to kill him before they flee, having failed to do so.

Lincoln calls Sara, who sees the same truck arriving at her house and she takes her son into the bathroom and hides. Sara tells her husband about a gun she has hidden. The husband ends up being shot and before Sara and her son are killed, the shooter leaves.


The Grave

Lincoln goes to Michael’s grave, he says that he slipped back into his old ways and looks at the paperwork before he notices something. Highlighted letters in a hidden message.

Sara takes her husband to the hospital and she and her son see Lincoln again. Lincoln wants to go to Ogygia, the highlighted letters in the hidden message. Lincoln asks Sara to go, but she refuses, saying she has a new life now and Lincoln offers to go, meeting up with C-Note and the two arrange to go. Fernando Sucre meets the two at the airport and Lincoln and C-Note both want Sucre to stay behind in case they need him.


Bagwell and the Anonymous Benefactor

Bagwell finds an email about a prosthetic limb research place, they want to schedule an appointment. Bagwell later figures out that despite what the researchers want, Bagwell was gifted their first prosthetic arm done by this process in exchange for funds. Bagwell gets the prosthetic and later asks who the anonymous benefactor was, the doctors tell him it was “Kaniel Outis.”


Ogygia, Yemen

Upon landing in Yemen, Burrows and Franklin are both targeted and taken by a false guide who drops them off with the wrong people. C-Note speaks of Sheba, who is the person who will help them find Michael.

Burrows and Franklin realize they were set up and attack the men who were going to kill them. Sheba shows up and escorts the two men to her place. They then go to Ogygia prison to meet Michael.


The Meeting

Lincoln asks about Michael, and the guards pull out Michael, he speaks to Lincoln but is cryptic and leaves, saying he isn’t Michael Scofield.
