Prison Break: Flight (finale)
Something that's quite obvious about this show is that Michael will never be taken lightly by the authorities, having let convicted felons loose. Even if he returns them to jail, how much time money he's caused everyone to hunt them down will be enough to lock him away forever. So, simply put, no matter what Michael does at this point, this show cannot end with an "all's forgiven" for Michael.
I'm really satisfied with how these guys end up at the end of the episode, though it's funny how with all the meticulous planning Michael did, the two newest members of their escape team have gotten away the cleanest. Word is that "Vanilla Ice guy" (Tweener) will be appearing a bit more next season.
Am I just one sick bastard, or was what happened to T-Bag oddly satisfying? It's pretty out-there that he'd actually be able to get away, though what would next season be without him? He's one evil and calculated bastard.
The biggest shocker to me was that Sarah looks to be quite dead. That's actually very sad if true, because it just doesn't make sense that she'd open the door for Michael and crew, only to go home and take herself out. I liked her character, and I thought Sarah Callies did an excellent job playing the character. It's not completely clear that she's dead yet, but it sure looked that way. What a waste.
While the president being killed was a little bit of a surprise, I felt like it lost its edge for me. Most likely this was due to the lackluster story of the Vice President and her brother-in-hiding. They lead us on with the water bottle, making us think it's meant for the Vice, when in fact the president's now dead. I feel like it's too little too late for that part of the story, so I really hope they work on that next season.
So, how will the rest of the guys get away? I just can't even begin to imagine a realistic scenario for them to get away with all of those cops on their tails. Wouldn't the cops likely have the right to open fire at this point? Looks like maybe they should've done a bit of jogging while at Fox River to train for this marathon, because there's a lot more running to do.
From the sound of things, the show comes back in the fall with (most likely) a new name. See you then!
