Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is finally free from prison, but Prison Break still continues with Michael (Wentworth Miller) stuck in a Panamanian jail. From his perspective, the prison storyline is only getting stronger, despite being separated from his brother.
Interview: Dominic Purcell On Prison Break Season Three
"It's very much like Midnight Express," said Purcell. "It's just insane. He just feels bad for his brother. His brother's in a whole lot of trouble again so he's doing what a brother would do. That's what Prison Break's about. It's touching on universal themes, that love and uncompromising, unconditional love that two brothers have."
Even without a prison break for his character, Purcell will have a lot to do this year. "Well, we're going to get to see a lot more of Lincoln's soul this year. We get to see a lot more of his street smarts. We get to see his charisma, his charm. We get to see the whole package with Linc this year. We get to see him doing his thing. I think the dynamic between the two brothers is going to be very exciting and inspirational. I think we're doing what we do best. It's all that stuff. The angst is gone. He no longer is burdened by what's been going on in the first two seasons."
So far there is no word on Lincoln reconnecting with his son, but there promises to be more action even outside of the prison walls. "I haven't read that far. Still a lot of action apparently going on on the outside. So they tell me anyway."
With most of the Fox River crew recaptured or killed, there are many new cast members coming aboard. Purcell only sees Amaury Nolasco from previous seasons. "Lincoln's dealing with Sucre but that would be about it. Obviously, he gets to see Michael during visitations."
