The series has come full circle by the beginning of the third season in that lead character Michael Scofield (played by Wentworth Miller) is back behind bars again. This time it is no cushy American jail, but a dirty and dangerous Panamanian jail. Michael is locked up with the wonderful T-Bag (played by Robert Knepper), Bellick (played by Wade Williams) and Mahone (played by William Fichtner). In a case of role reversal, his older brother Lincoln (played by Dominic Purcell) is on the outside trying to get Michael out of jail.
Season three provides the same type of action, suspense, drama, and the occasional plot twist that we’ve come to expect from Prison Break. It feels kind of incomplete and rushed at times due to the dastardly writer’s strike. As a result the season ends up only being 13 episodes long.
Episode 1: Orientacion: Michael, T-Bag, Bellick, and Mahone are locked up in a Panamanian jail called the Sona and they try to come up with a way to break out.
Episode 2: Fire/Water: Lincoln continues his efforts to get Michael out of jail.
Episode 3: Call Waiting: Michael tries to get in touch with Sara (played by Katie Amanda Keane), but he needs T-Bag’s help getting to the only phone in the facility.
Episode 4: Good Fences: Haywire (played by Silas Weir Mitchell) is alive and his presence haunts Mahone.
Episode 5: Interference: A new inmate named Tyge (played by Dominic Keating) is brought to Sona and he seems to know Whistler (played by Chris Vance).
Episode 6: Photo Finish: Michael will put a halt to the escape plan unless he gets proof that Sara is alive.
Episode 7: Vamonos: Sucre (played by Amaury Nolasco) to offers to help Lincoln.
Episode 8: Bang & Burn: Susan (played by Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) enacts her own escape plan, which puts Michael’s life in danger.
Episode 9: Boxed In: The Panamanian Army gives Michael a dose of solitary of confinement.
