The Plot

The guys from Fox River escape from Sona and are on the run but now, there is even more at stake. They were never given permission to leave Sona, they escaped from this prison as well, to break out Whistler for The Company or Gretchen or who knows at this point.

This comes in the form of something very complicated called Scylla. Everyone wants to get their little grubby hands on Scylla. There is world-wide interest in fact. With the company closing in on the team that is trying to retrieve Scylla. All of this really needs to happen before the company can get it's hands on it. This is a multi-billion dollar deal. So, everyone has an interest.

Several more innocent people are killed along the way but, there are those unexpected twists and turns on this episode and in this season as well. Then, even when you think that you have things figured out, there's always that one more twist or a little something happens that you can relate to a previous episode.

At one point, even Lincoln Burrows convinces his brother, Micheal Scofield's cell mate at Fox River, Sucre to join The Company. No one knows at this point who to trust anymore and it seems as if the brothers are going to turn against each other. Ironically, the brothers have to work together with Bagwell. He works as the decoy and keeping the other agents busy so, that digging can go on just below his office.

T-Bag the Business Man

T-Bag acts as if he is a top sales person. He tells the company, that he is to take the place of another insurance salesman. In reality, Bagwell and Scofield need the office that T-Bag occupies to dig for a piece of Scylla. Bagwell is the deterrent while the others are working down below. There is always a risk when digging here. There are so many eyes watching at all times. Turns out Bagwell's secretary works as undercover FBI agent. She is able to notify agent that hired her to be on the look out for all the extra activity there at her compnay.

After betraying Scofield, Lincoln once again has to go beg for help. Lincoln plays on Scofield's tender heart and reminds him that L.J. is still in the custody of the company.There are really too many turns to mention in this article and I don't want to ruin the show for you.

The Prison Break Series is truly a must see television series. This part of the series leads up to the movie which is the final conclusion to The Prison Break Series. Most everything was explained but, there were a few things left unanswered perhaps because, another season was being planned. I wish that were the case because this television show or series was one of the best I ever seen in my opinion. Now, it is 2016 and we know that another few episodes are in fact, being planned. True Prison Break fans can not wait.

Its the final season of the show and it totally unloads everything to know about " The Company". The escapees now have a chance to become heroes and walk away as free men.

New Characters

1. Agent Don Self: Don Self teams up with Scoffield and crew to help bring down the company. His involvement with the company got his wife killed. His focus is for the good of the world.

2. General Jonathan Krantz: The head honcho over The Company doesn't take no for an answer. He is mysterious but also a jerk to say the least.

3. Miriam Hultz: The brunette who is also a Secretary at Gate. She is really however, an undercover FBI agent that they have to spy on T-Bag because as we all know, he is always up to something.

4. Christina Scoffield: Presumed dead by Lincoln and Michael, there mom pops up when Scylla is mentioned. Lincoln, Michael and the rest of the gang, rob her at gunpoint to retrieve the first card of Scylla. She is conniving and does some really dirty things to her sons.

5. Lisa Tabak: She is the daughter of The General and the transporter of Scylla. She is loyal to her father but his loyalty lies elsewhere.

Theodore Bagwell

Teabag is a villainous criminal but he is needed for escaping the law on many occasions. He was in prison for multiple murders but broke free and now lives and works in the city.

The End

This ending would be ruined if I said too much and I would really like you to watch the series. Having said that, Michael Scoffield's good wins out in the end. Scylla has turned out to be more than Scoffield and gang bargained for. Scylla ends up being six cards instead of one. They are dispersed all over The US and they are with very powerful, hard to get to people. This makes The Prison Break series very interesting. The computer genius who is part of the team has a device to help the team.

I would highly recommend Season 4. It explains a lot about the show. The escapees are all over the city with different reasons for doing everything that they do. Please share your thoughts on Season 4 if you have seen it I would love to hear from you. Their is a comments capsule at the bottom of this hub.
