    Well, I knew Michael would die. I just figured it would be him getting killed then fading out. Not him dead then fade out. But what a finish. Everyone's happy, the general got fried and T-Bag back in jail. if you haven't seen this, oops, my bad.

    The fixing of illness, must have worn off, don't know what happened there. Good ending for everyone but Michael. The line Lincoln said to T Bag was funny, about the gum

    Christina and General Krantz, I was happy for their ending. Sarah,Lincoln,Alex,Sucre,C-Note,and Kellerman get a happy ending. Self, karma, you betray someone, tough luck.
    T-Bag, I knew it.
    Micheal? OH MY GOD. I was in TEARS. I'm not a sensitive person, but that.. they didn't even tell us what happened! I thought the tumor was REMOVED! ... I was speechless.. Such a good, yet miserable ending, and I'll always remember this series. I hope they wrap it up well in the series finale.. When Sarah shot Christina.. I SCREAMED, I was like, YAY! The T-Bag and Sarah part was.. uncomfortable.
    I loved the return of Sucre, C-Note and Kellerman.. Micheal J. Scofield, you died a hero! R.I.P
    I know this is all a show, but I'm so attached.. Congrats Prison Break, loved it, so unique, just please tell us the stiry behind Micheals death, I know it wasn't just the tumor..

    Well, you know in real life, not all injuries always heal and get fixed. It probably started to take effect after all his running around and the stressful situations he was in. I didn't think Michael would die Glad this is a happy ending though. No cliffhangers or betrayals or anything to leave you hanging looking for answers. They got their freedom and are livng their lives like they should...free. I just hope that Michael's son got to see him and he got to love his son for a while before he died. I have never been one to cry at the end of a movie or show but this one got me teary eyed at the end. I knew who it was when they were at the graveyard. It was just sad to see him die but he wouldn't have it any other way. This is what Michael always wanted for everyone....to be free. Great way to end the show and I've always loved watching this show ever since the beginning of the 2nd season. Been a great ride! This was a great episode!

    that was a horrible ending for a show. Why couldn't they have just let Micheal live. Anyway, what's with the date on his death being 2005? so we are supposed to believe that all this happened in a single year? I know things happened fast but that is a bit crazy.

    When they were voting to see if T Bag gets exonnerated, when Lincoln and Michael go into jail were t bag is sitting, Linc is like "well t bag we voted and its good news, tbag is like oh thank you thank you, then linc is like "but what we voted for was if you get to have a piece of gum on the ride back to prison" then he sticks the gum in his mouth and hits t bag on the cheek. i thought it was funny lol

    While overall a satisfactory ending for all our favorites, and just desserts for those we loved to hate, I can't believe (since I was spoiler free) that the end would leave me feeling so overwhelmingly sad. Of anyone, Michael deserved the perfect life...which was cut far too short. I should've known better that there wouldn't be a "happily ever after" ending, but I had no idea that the loss of Michael would break my heart so much....
