    Firstly if you haven't watched PB: The Final Break then I wouldn't read on cos it may spoil it for you.

    Prison Break: The Final Break kinda redeemed PB (a little) after what was a poor effort at the end of Season 4.

    Regarding Michael and whether he's dead or not, knowing PB they could easily bring him back if they wanted to make a future Season. They bought back Kellerman and would Michaels return from 'the grave' be more unbelievable than Sarah's return?.

    Remember if you havent seen the body then there's no proof they're dead and Michael's death wasn't reported.

    That video message to Linc and Sarah could have been genuine at the time (before Linc and Sarah found out he was alive) and as for the grave visit at the end of S4, well that could have been a 'show' for the feds who were watching.

    Don't get me wrong, I do actually think Michael is dead and that the TV people are done with Prison Break but if they did want to do another season they could....

    and with Michael in it.

    they didn't show Michael body because he was unrecognizable and to gruesome for TV like Mahone son they didn't show his body and what mahone son is alive i don't think so. Michael is more dead than Aldo Burrows.

    100% agree..no body no proof!
    except i would change the story a little...michael actually got captured by agencies, and he lost his memory, so he couldnt return to his family..never know..they can bring headless sarah back, and shot a millions times kellerman back..im sure they can bring michael back... and kellerman uses the scylla to get rid of his tumour...second attept..!

    not being picky about michaels death, but when he put the two cables together the electricity whould have taken the path of least resistance ie: straight through the cables not through michael so he should accually still be alive.

    Give it up... Most of the fans already lost touch with the series and the ratings were plummeting. No way in hell this show will even come back. It ended nicely, so let it rest.

    That's what i was thinking. Plus he wasnt in direct contact with the wires (cause of the protective covering) so it shouldnt have hurt him right?

    im not sure, but i think the current is propotionly divided between the two paths (michaels body, and the wire).. as the wire has less resitance most of the current would flow through it. but there would be a small amount that flows through michael.. in this case that small amount was more then enough to kill michael..

    then again, im not an engineer, so im not sure.

    Even though the show did not show Michael's death it is a given based on the premise of the tv show. The entire tv show was about Michael sacrificing his own life to save the people he loves - Lincoln and Sara - he saved them both from death because he loves them so deeply. He is a man of love, a man of sacrifice. He's sacrifice is a resemblance of how we ought to love one another. Love is about sacrifice and Michael sacrificed his personal life for the people he loves. He sacrificed his life to the point of death for Sara. He died so Sara and his unborn child could live. His sacrifice fulfills what the show was trying to accomplish and the show accomplished this message in a beauitful way.

    The show and its staff have done seemingly outrageous things in the past so I wouldn't at all be surprised if he wasn't actually dead.

    If i've learned one thing from watching prison break for almost 4 years it would be this, do not believe what you don't see. Prison break has so many twists, and turns, that you can't believe what you don't see. Now i'm not saying the Michael is alive, but i wouldn't bet everything i own on that. Look out for another break movie, or dvd. It could happen.

    just one question, when michael died in the movie, the agents must have caught him dead but sara, linc, mahone, and sucre already left so how could they have had the body in the grave (in the last episode of season 4)

    i think he could possibly be alive. he's a smart guy - he could have found another way out for sara, after all he has already broke out of 2 prisons and overcome many hiccups. i think he's still alive, except he wants everyone to think he's dead.

    because...
    when he went to see the general, the general told him he wanted sara dead because it would pain him until his own death, therefore even if both michael and sara got out, someone would come after sara because michael was still around. i also think mahone was in on it, as michael trusted him with the dvd and the note. i think now the general is dead, it would be safe for michael to show up again because his family would be safe.

    i don't think another season could be made, cos i don't believe there would be enough storyline to last-it would just drag, however i do think another 'movie' could be made

    I think they did not redeem squat with FB.

    Actually they totally ruined the whole plot with whole sacrifice thing.

    Why can't they let him die of cancer like storyline suggested int he first place? let dead stay dead. Don't make them into zombies

    No, Michael is not dead. He will return in Season 5 which is called "Zombie Break". The story is pretty intense: Burrows messes up everything again (when he didn't?), they put him into Russian prison and Michael comes back in bear form to fight through commies and save his bro. Oh, also Kenny will help him.
