EXCLUSIVE: 'Prison Break' Sneak Peek! Lincoln Visits Michael's Grave, But Something's Not Right
By Philiana Ng
We're days away from Prison Break's anticipated return -- and it doesn't miss a beat.
Fox's beloved prison drama returns for a new nine-episode season on Tuesday, seven years after it went off the air, with all your old favorites back and ready for action, led by brothers Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell).
In ET's exclusive sneak peek from the premiere, Lincoln visits Michael's grave after receiving a black-and-white photograph allegedly proving that his brother's death at the end of season four was faked and that he has been alive this entire time.
"Smart girl, your Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies). She's right. I'm just desperate to see your face," Lincoln confesses, as a montage of the brothers from the first four seasons of Prison Break flashes by. "My life has been a mess ever since you left. Going back to my old ways, something you wouldn't tolerate. But I got good in me. It'd just be nice if you were here to help me find it."
That's when it hits Lincoln. Maybe there was a reason he was sent that photo. Sure enough, he's right. It is Michael Scofield, after all.
At the edge of the paper, Lincoln realizes that the line of jumbled letters was a code and immediately goes into detective mode, erasing the extra letters before a mysterious word, Ogygia, reveals itself. Could that be where Michael has been all this time? Watch the exclusive clip below to find out!
"We are like brothers at this point," Miller said of his close relationship with Purcell, with whom he reunited on The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. "When I see him, there's a level of comfort and familiarity that is like when I get together with family. I know that he has my back and I have his, and we get each other's rhythm and style. We have a shorthand on set, so there's a layer of comfort when I work with Dom."
"Prison Break is a huge part of my life and Wentworth and I are great friends and it was just the chance to revisit the show," Purcell said. "But when we came back, there was a responsibility that came with that to uphold the success."
Prison Break premieres Tuesday, April 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
