Prison Break returns and this time we’re breaking Michael out of a country! Get a sneak peek of tonight’s premiere episode.
You guys, Prison Break is back and I CANNOT contain my excitement!
When the series first aired between 2005 and 2009, I totally missed the boat. But thanks to the glories of modern TV/video technology, I was able to catch up with the series in 2011, during my grad school fieldwork in Nigeria. I still remember buying the DVDs and using my portable DVD player (borrowed from my Mom) to binge-watch. Once I started watching Prison Break, I couldn’t stop, not for anything!
The story was SO compelling. Besides all the mystery, suspense, and “OMG, did that really happen? That can’t happen!” moments, the love between Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) always got me right in my heart. Those brothers would do anything for each other. Then soon after, Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) became part of the family as Michael’s love interest!
When we got to initial series finale, after all the drama with The Company, just when there was hope for a future, Michael sacrificed himself to help a pregnant Sara break out of prison. I was so distraught… I literally couldn’t handle the fact that Michael had to make this ultimate sacrifice with his life. Of course, in the video he left for his family and friends, we learned his cancer had returned. *SIGH*
So, how in the world do we find ourselves in a situation in 2016/2017 where Michael is alive and trapped in a Yemeni prison?
Well, the synopsis of tomorrow’s premiere episode “Ogygia” (written by Paul Scheuring, directed by Nelson McCormick) gives us some insight:
It’s been seven years since Michael Scofield, was presumed dead, but when clues suggest that he might still be alive, Lincoln Burrows reunites with Sara Tancredi to help track down the truth. The path leads Lincoln to Yemen, as Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), T-Bag (Robert Knepper) and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) are pulled back into the action to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever. (via FOX)
Welps, Michael (or maybe the people who kidnapped him) have A LOT of explaining to do!
Thanks to Fox’s YouTube channel for Prison Break, we have several clips to share, which start to shed some light.
In the first clip, T-Bag brings Lincoln a letter that was sent to him that looks to be from Michael (WHATTTTT?). In the second video, Lincoln visits with Sara (who is now remarried) and her son (with Michael), Mike Jr. This is followed by Lincoln discovering a hidden message in the letter that was sent to T-bag.
In the next clip, Lincoln takes T-bag’s letter from Michael to C-Note for help figuring out why Michael would be in Yemen. In the last video, Sucre tells Lincoln what he has been doing the past few years and how he can help him find Michael.
*EXCITE* So, we’re on our way to Yemen! And something tells me the situation Lincoln, Sucre, and C-Note will encounter won’t be a very heartening one. But there has to be hope because Michael is alive!
