The highly anticipated Prison Break Season 5 is bringing back Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) from the dead. But will it also revive the fan-favorite romance between him and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), the mother of his young son?
The limited Season 5 event will return with most of its original main cast in April, nearly eight years after the final episode of the original FOX series aired. According to Prison Break Season 5 spoilers, much of the upcoming season is set in Yemen, where Scofield has re-emerged following his apparent death at the end of the serial drama's fourth season.
In Prison Break Season 5, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) learns that his brother is still alive but is incarcerated in the Ogygia Prison. It's currently unclear how Scofield went from dying in Season 4 to being involved with a terrorist group halfway across the world in Season 5. But it's probably safe to say that Michael never actually died. Instead, he may have simply opted to disappear to protect his family.
On Valentine's Day, a fan tweeted at the Prison Break writers, asking what Sara and Michael will be doing to celebrate the occasion. The writers responded with a disappointing but perfectly rational answer.
"Well, Michael's in prison/dead and Sara's married to Jacob."
Of course, anything can happen (Scofield was "resurrected," after all) and Sara's husband could be conveniently disposed of to give Prison Break fans the "happily ever after" ending they crave.
