Michael Scofield has had to make many unlikely allies in this Prison Break. Certainly he never wanted T-Bag involved, and now he has to trust Kellerman to help him solve the government conspiracy.
Miller Talks Prison Break
"I think that’s a Prison Break hallmark because first season was a bunch of different men with competing agendas forced to work together for a common goal," said Miller. "We have the same dynamic right now with Michael, Lincoln and Kellerman except Michael of course doesn’t know that Kellerman tried to drown Sara in the bathtub not too long ago and when she’s eventually reintroduced to the plot, I think that will damage this tentative alliance specifically."
Scofield has also had a lot in common with his enemies, like the puzzle solving agent Mahone. Kellerman should be similar. "I think what’s fascinating is that Michael and Kellerman actually reflect each other in many ways. They’re both driven men, obsessed men working on either side of this equation."
Sarah will come back to cause more trouble in the already fragile alliance. "There is a reunion of sorts that happens within the next few episodes. Sara literally holds the key to the government conspiracy so that brings her back into the mix and Michael and Sara of course still have that romantic bond and the challenge is how do they act on that amid a hail of bullets. It’s difficult but it’s compelling at the same time."
As the second half of the season builds to a climax, Miller expects many of the ends to tie up nicely. "I think we may see some closure perhaps with the government conspiracy. I think there will be some settling of old scores but somewhere in that triumph, there will be tragedy. I have heard rumors about a reversal of fortune. A number of the main characters who may or may not wind up back behind bars at some point. The show is called Prison Break and eventually I think we’ll probably come home in some way, shape or form. Michael for example did get his brother exonerated, but he also held up a bank, and they escaped from a prison which is of course an offense and have committed countless offenses in the episodes since so I think he’s looking at some real jail time somewhere down the line. Fox River or someplace worse."
Though they are still waiting for a pickup, Miller is confident there will be a season three. "I think that the fans aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to these characters and I think we’re not quite ready to say goodbye to the fans so I imagine there will be a season three. That’s what I’m feeling in my heart of hearts."
