9:30pm – Wednesday, July 22 on TV 3
This week will see Michael (Wentworth Miller) facing one of the most difficult decisions of his life when he must choose between saving either Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) or Lincoln (Dominic Purcell). The last ever episodes of Prison Break continue on Wednesday, July 22nd at 9:30pm on 3.
Prison Break continues its explosive action this week, but only for a few weeks longer. Yes, after four seasons, it’s time for Michael, Lincoln and all the other Fox River escapees to finally catch their breath… or perhaps take a final one.
So what’s coming up on television’s biggest ever prison escape drama? For one thing, there’s the matter of Michael and Lincoln’s seemingly bad mother (played by Kathleen Quinlan) Prison Break co-creator Matt Olmstead explains to Zap2It.
“She plays a big part in the last few episodes,” Olmstead explains of the series newcomer.
“A lot of secrets are revealed, and Michael and Lincoln are certainly shook in terms of who they are, where they came from. At a certain point, they’re wondering if this is the truth or are they being divided and conquered, so to speak.”
This in turn is followed by another twist, as Olmstead explains it. “We have a big surprise reveal,” he says. “I won’t tell you who it is, but a returning character comes in late in the game, when the wheels are coming off, and he or she is either there to save the day or to hijack the whole thing for his or her own benefit.”
That unexpected return, says Olmstead, “pays off very nicely.”
Of course, Prison Break being Prison Break, a few bodies will drop before the series finale. And one of them is of such significance; the show’s bosses had to fight to take the life in question.
“There was kind of a polarised viewpoint over at Fox [Prison Break's production company], in terms of killing or preserving a character,” Olmstead explains.
But who will this be, and does it have something to do with Michael having to choose between Sara and Lincoln? Only one way to find out – tune into Prison Break when the series screens on Wednesday, July 22nd at 9:30pm on 3.
