The confirmation of the series reboot of "Prison Break" has led to countless plot speculations among fans. The latest theory to come out points to the possible death of Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) which will be the result of his trying to save his brother Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller).
The production of the much awaited comeback series of "Prison Break" was confirmed earlier this year, and fans of the brother tandem are constantly making buzz with "Prison Break" season 5 theories. Rumors have been swirling that this season will conclude the story of the brothers, following the fact that Lincoln's upcoming plan to break Scofield out of prison will be too dangerous that one of them may end up dying.
The last seasons of "Prison Break" centered on how Scofield tried hard to get Lincoln out of the prison. In the story, the latter was wrongfully charged with the murder of the US vice president's brother, Terence Steadman. To get his brother Lincoln out, Michael deliberately got himself sent to the same prison with the intention to break both of them out. Season 4 ended with Michael sending Mahone with an explosive device to kill Christina and rescue Lincoln. The plan had been successful as Lincoln was able to escape the death row but Michael was left to die. Right then and there, fans believed that the series was over.
Lincoln's Time Has Come
"Prison Break" creators released an official preview for season 5. The video came as a bombshell, confirming that Michael Scofield is very much alive. Michael is discovered to be locked up again, serving his sentence in the Ogygia Prison in Yemen for his involvement with ISIL.
Taking into consideration the brothers' course of actions in the past seasons, "Prison Break" season 5 will be the chance for Lincoln to take Michael out of his cell. However, things won't be really simple as political schemes and double-crossing inmates will make the task doubly difficult for the brothers.
Is "Prison Break" Season 5 Going To Be The Last?
Season 4 ended seven years ago, leaving everyone with the thought that Michael was already dead. As previously reported, "Prison Break" season 5 will mirror the show's first season plot, which is to break a brother out of prison.
However, the twist in the plot of this new season turns the tables around, appointing Lincoln to come up with the breakout plan. Though this time, it will prove to be a challenge as they will need to get out of Yemen. Some reports claim that season 5 will be the last season as the series is supposedly ending with another death, but this time it will be Lincoln's.
Will Lincoln Sacrifice His Life For Michael?
As the last season ended with Michael sacrificing, it seems to have been a trend in the show that freedom requires sacrifices. Going by this theory, fans are assuming that Lincoln has to battle against the odds in "Prison Break" season 5 to set his brother free. Based on the official sneak peek, Lincoln sets off to gather the members of the Fox River Eight escape to get the job done. However, getting Michael out in Yemen will be a real challenge. Lincoln may have to make some difficult decisions which might include sacrificing his life.
Meanwhile, fans of the "Prison Break" couple, Michael and Sara, are wondering if the two will find their way back in each other's arms. Season 5 starts with Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) already married to someone else and is raising her child with Michael.
