‘Prison Break’: T-Bag Shows Lincoln Evidence Michael is Alive (VIDEO)
Prison Break returns April 4, and the characters have a bombshell waiting for them: Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), who apparently died in the series finale, is actually alive.
T-Bag (Robert Knepper) is the first one to be clued in, when he receives a mysterious package upon exiting prison. The former convict goes to Michael’s brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) to share the news, but in the exclusive clip below, T-Bag doesn’t quite get the response he was expecting.
“[The old] Teddy would be like really pissed off at these brothers and that Lincoln is ignoring him,” Knepper says of the brushoff. “I chose to go, ‘OK. You’ll see. I don’t need this.’ Normally I would be like, ‘You want to fight, you want to rumble?’ His reaction [now] is to not necessarily be a hothead right away. Hotheadedness will come into it [later in the season], but it’s a little more cerebral.”
As to why Michael—or someone connected to him—might tip off T-Bag out of all the allies at his disposal? “Michael knows, ‘Who is the one guy I could get to do this that knows how to be an animal? The guy I needed so much on the inside,'” Knepper teases.
