Prison Break premiere shocker

***Detail-free spoiler inside (in other words, something happens, but we don't know to who)--you have been warned!!!***

It's that time of the year for returning shows--hype for new seasons must be backed up as vets try to keep all eyes on themselves rather than shiny new programs hitting the airwaves. And nothing says, "We're back!" like an explosive season premiere.

Based on feedback from this year's Comic-Con, Heroes already showed that it's returning guns-a-blazin' (read a full-episode recap here), forcing other fall hits to reveal their hands a little early and catch some buzz.

While Heroes' action-packed, game-changing third-season premiere (airing on NBC September 22) certainly deserves serious attention, nothing gets people chatting like killing off a main character. Apparently, that's just what's in store for fans of Prison Break when the drama's fourth season is unleashed on Fox September 1.

Preview screeners of the first episode have been mailed out to some lucky journalists, and TheTVAddict.com (sort of) spilled one of its big secrets. According to the site, one (or possibly two) "of your favorite characters" will get killed in the two-hour premiere. The "possibly two" disclaimer likely indicates a cliffhanger "did he/she die?" ending, but at least one death is certainly in the cards.

Thankfully, TVAddict does not give the name of the character or any specific details on who it is. Enter E! Online to provide some details! The site says that both suspects are "hot bodies" (her words, not mine). Ladies, isn't that everyone on the show?

E! also provides a look at two new characters to be featured in the upcoming season. The Company man after Michael and Lincoln this year is named Wyatt (Cress Williams, ER, Grey's Anatomy), who discovers that his targets aren't where people think they are. Also joining the crew is computer hacker Roland, played by James Hiroyuki Liao (CSI), who serves as the tech-savvy--but, like any IT guy, difficult to work with--member for the good guys.

And if that weren't enough Prison Break news for one day, there is also a video game based on the show in the works. In the season three DVD box set (out now), an insert promotes Prison Break The Game from publisher Brash. The solo screenshot indicates that gamers will play as Michael Scofield in Splinter Cell-type stealth action. Look for the game in stores in February on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

OK, Prison Break fans... let's hear your theories! Who is getting 86'd from the show?

Its true we saw Lincoln look at the head of 'Sara' in a box. But please remember the part where Lincoln was shown a corpse that matched his description of Sara, at the morgue? Maybe Gretchen got her hands an this unfortunate body, chopped off its head and posted it to Linc. Linc was so emotional that he 'maybe' didn't get a good enough look at the head to notice it wasn't Sara.

im sorry but almost every single one of you have no idea what the hell ur talkin about.

Michael- main character wont die

Lincoln- wont die because purpos of show is gone

Mahone- one of the best characters and confirmed in later episodes so he wont die.

Sucre- needs a happy ending with his family and also confirmed in later episodes.

Tbag- another favorite for most and he too is confirmed

bellick- wont die in premeir because it has been said he dies around ep.9

gretchen- confirmed later on.

lj- lincs kid wont kill him

Who will die in premeir:

whistler- actor has new show and whistler is in no future episodes.

sofia- possible but will probably hide somewhere with lj.

pam mahone- she will mostly likely die because the description for the 1st ep. is mahone suffers a deveastating loss, meaning her

Lastly for people who keep saying how tbag,bellick and sucre are in sona..... there not it burnt down and they escaped

I believe that one of the characters that will die is Sucre. If you analyze the commercial for the two-hour Labor Day Season Premiere of "Prison Break" closely, Sucre is wearing a black button-down shirt with black pants when he is walking with Michael and the group. A few seconds later, there is a zooming-out long shot of someone in the same uniform lying on his back in a sandy area. Or he could have collapsed in the area like he did in the street during the end of Season Two when he thought about Maricruz. Nonetheless, I would presume either Sucre or perhaps Mahone, the ones in the black suits from the above observation, dies. I would hope that Bellick dies because his character spiralled downhill from a tyrannical warden-to-be to a whiny unkempt jackass.

I REALLY hope it's not gonna be Sucre, he is like one of the best characters on the show, I hope it's Bellick or T-Bag, although he's funny...

And also I don't know why but I HATE sophia so I kind of hope it's her...

Anyway, can't wait for PB season 4!!!!!!!!

Alright, Dr. Tancredi is coming back, but how? Her head was on the freaking box but that could be a fake I accept that, but what about LJ in one of the episodes telling Linc that he "SAW" Susan cutting Sarah's head off??

My vote is for Gretchen (Susan B. Anthony) to be 86'd! She is one mean lady.

I have a feeling that one will be Whistler, but second one...I can only guess. Bellick maybe? Of T-Bag? Maybe Mahone? I'd like to see that Greschen-or-something-like-that dead

I have changed my mind already - as Whistler isn't in the cast pics, I think he has to be at the top of the list to be killed off and maybe they might kill off Sofia with him......just not as exciting

I think the new "company man" will kill of Gretchen as she knows to much. With T bag, Bellick and now Sucre all still in Sona they will still be back tracking to the inmates there and the storyline will still heavily be based on the book that T bag has. Once Michael has established that Sarah is alive he will catch up with Lincoln and they will all then return to free Sucre and get caught up in the whole Whistler/Mahone - T bag/Bellick story.

It won't be Michael or Lincoln. I don't think it would be Mahone or Whistler, or Gretchen, because the season finale made it seem like the three of them were going to be our bad guys.



Sucre seems to have fulfilled his purpose, they didn't have much to do with him last season. Bellick may have outlived his time too. What about T-Bag? I think they'd keep him because he's the only non-Company bad guy, but it depends if they really want to keep up the Sona storyline now Michael isn't there and presumably won't have anything else to do with the place. Didn't they move back to filming in LA now? All the Sona backdrops were Florida, right?



So I'd guess Bellick and/or Sucre, but are they big enough for a season opener? Maybe Michael will kill Gretchen and she'll reveal that Sara is alive? That would be sufficiently dramatic for a season opener.

I doubt it's Bellick (since that E! Online person said it was a "hot body [or bodies]" getting killed off), and I think he's dead last behind T-Bag if you were gonna rank the characters in terms of "hotness". (lol)



Oh, and speaking of hotness, I don't care how contrived or "soap opera-ish" or whatever you wanna call what the creators come up with, but Micheal's GOTTA lose that full upper body tat. Like, he had to wear turtlenecks the entire time he was in that prison in S.3...give me a break! Like, I get that the creators came up with this idea of a guy who could break his bro out of prison by tatooing "reminders" of the blueprints all over his arms and torso, and then the show became an unexpected hit so they were kinda stuck with it, but honest to Christ, that's ALL I could think about everytime Michael showed up in S.3. C'mon man, it had to be 40 degrees there! [Yes that's Celcius - you know, like as in the metric system which everybody in the entire world except for the AmeriKKKanz use...]. Put on a damn t-shirt or SOMETHING.



Like I said, I don't care if he gets "horrible acid burns from his neck to his waistline which then miracuously heal" or he gets a head transplant onto another body or WHATEVER...just give the guy a chance to get out of the long sleeves, ya know? Who's with me??

I think Michael will bite the dust, and his spirit will posess Sucre, meenwhile he's being transfered out of Sona, and back to Foxriver, where Michael will have to break out again, except he forgot his Tatoo on his old boddy... just kidding :P

I think AJ will be killed by the company to get Michael reunited with Linc, but it backfires and gets Linc to follow Michaels rampage insted.

Sona will still be importent since T-Bag has the book, it will probably be Sucres mission to get the book, and that will likely get him neraly killed, but still kept alive as a liason to Michael, so T-Bag can make a deal with Michael: T-Bags freedom for the book.

And with Mahone "In" with the company, I think we will lerrn alot more about them. Im still not sure whos side he is on however ;)

And as for killing Belic, that would be sad. He is hysterically funny, a small taste of power and he is the king of the world (in his own eyes), but a little adversity and he cries like a itty-bitty-baby, I want to see him rise under T-Bags wing (mabey holding his pocket ;)) and then later in the show have that power taken from him... It'll be funny as hell :D

Last thing. With both Michael and Linc looking for revenge on the company, Michael will find Sarah alive, and re-think his plans out of fear of loosing her for real, but Sarah and Linc will try to convince him to go forward, by reminding him of everything they've lost so far (their dad, AJ, what they did to Sarah, and so on) ...but all of this is just speculation of course :)

I think it's Whistler, and possibly Bellick, but I never thought of him as a "hot body". Sucre's still around in the 8th episode, and they wouldn't kill Michael or Lincoln. Possibly Sofia? They're my guesses. T-bag and Gretchen are still around to, so I don't think it'll be them either

I think it's Bellick. What point does he serve anymore? Season 1 he was awesome, and then in season 2 it was interesting to see him behind bars and all, that was pretty cool. But season 3 he was lame. No offence to the actor, he does a good job, but Bellick's character is pointless now. :( I want Kellerman back, though!

How can anyone think Michael will be killed off ? How would the show go on ? It's all about him. I can't imagine how basic the show would be with air-heads like Bellick, Linc, Sucre and everyone else..

I may be wrong also, but I believe that the head in the box is actually Veronica Donovan, as I did a little "search" of my own. And it appears that the actress, Robin Tunney will be back for the season opener. I always knew it wasn`t Sarah. Killing off Michael and keeping Sarah would be pointless. But killing off Lincoln could open up many "new" storyline possibilities. So, there you have it. My guess is Lincoln being killed off and Sucre being injured... or vice versa.

Guys

Look on the promotional picture of the new season on this page and you will see Sarah Wayne Callies on it. It was already announced several months ago that she was returning as a fulltime regular this season.

Well, according to thefutoncritic.com, Sarah Wayne Callies who plays Dr. Sara Tancredi on the show is indeed coming back, which is crazy because I swore we saw a head in the box, but we really were not revealed a face. In the case of whose being killed off in the season premiere, I would bet it is Sucre. I doubt that they are going to kill Michael off with Sara coming back.

I think the best move would be to OFF Lincoln. The show may suffer from Too-many-Heros-itis. It has always really been about Michael and to progress beyond prior storylines, they need to leap in a new direction. Last season got a little stale.

According to the site, one (or possibly two) "of your favorite characters" will get killed in the two-hour premiere. The "possibly two" disclaimer likely indicates a cliffhanger "did he/she die?" Take note of the photo all Sarahs in it and all the crew plus newbies but no AJ. Could it be that easy to guess roflmao its Prison Break doubt it.

But I did always have a feeling the Sarah killing was a setup.

Cheers
