PRISON BREAK Sneak Peek: The Search for Michael

prison break

The discovery that Michael Scofield is actually alive comes in the first five minutes of PRISON BREAK’s new season and once Lincoln suspects that his brother isn’t dead he immediately sets out to solve this mystery.

But a recent photograph showing Michael in another prison (because where else would he be?) comes from T-Bag, so Linc is a bit suspicious that the criminal might be playing him. T-Bag, however, insists that he’s just acting as the messenger here. Lincoln’s next stop is to see Sara, who is living with her son (Mike) and her new husband, Jacob, in Ithaca, New York. Sara is wary about the possibility that Michael could actually be alive and thinks this might just be a joke, but it’s clear she doesn’t want to hope for something she’s not convinced is not real.

Linc, however, can’t let the situation go. And when he realizes the photo of Michael contains a clue as to his whereabouts he seeks out someone who can help him: C-Note. The former criminal has converted to Islam since the last time we saw him and he believes Michael may be in Ogygia prison in Yemen. But Yemen is unstable right now, with ISIL forces slowly taking over the country, so C-Note agrees to accompany Linc to the Middle East to help him find out if his brother is alive.

PRISON BREAK returns with all new episodes on Tuesday, April 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
