WARNING! Major Series Finale Spoiler – UPDATED!!
So, the big rumor lately has been whether Michael will die in the finale. Someone asked The Man whether or not this is true. Here’s the response:
Question: Hi, Will Michael be alive in the end? Hope you will answer thank you
Answer: Since you keep asking i will tell you. At the end of ep 22 the scene that is 4 years later has sara, linc, sucre, mahone and michael jr. at michaels grave. and then the show ends. In eps 23 and 24 you will find out what happened. Michael ends up sacraficeing himself to save sara and get her out of prison, but the reason he did it is because he still has a tumor and was going to die anyway.
Admitedly, the Man correctly revealed the twist that Michael and Lincoln were not brothers a week or two before we learned about that. Then I recalled these promo photos. I think the kid in those photos is Michael and Sara’s son. And we see Lincoln, Sara and Sucre. No Michael. Of course, we also don’t see Mahone, which is odd since apparently he’s supposed to be at the grave. And these photos are on a beach……so who really buries someone on a beach? Anyways, I still these these photos are telling. But I don’t know whether this is true. I mean, according to Ausiello the ending would be satisfying but bittersweet. This ending just sucks. I guess we will have to wait and see.
UPDATED: E!Online’s Kristen responded to a fan’s question about Michael’s potential death.
Lisa in Miami: I am a huge Prison Break fan, and Michael-Sara shipper, and I’m starting to get a little worried about how the series will end. Do you know anything about how things will turn out for Michael and Sara?
Kristen: We’ll be answering all your burning Prison Break Q’s later this week after we get a peek at the finale. But for now, don’t freak out. We’ve got your back, and we know that the writers do too. Everything is gonna be OK!
As an aside, I’ve been reading through this forum thread, where our readers are discussing this spoiler. Most people hate this potential ending, but Animal Dan reminded us that Wentworth said the ending was the one the fans wanted. I seem to remember him saying this, though I can’t find the exact quote. We’re in a holding pattern until Kristen gives us some more information.
