If I had to choose between Prison Break and Heroes, hands down Prison Break would win. The most recent season of Heroes is frightfully bad. I just hope that Volume 4: Fugitives will be better than Volume 3: Villains.
Back to Prison Break.
It’s quite exceptional that the show has been able to continue producing twisted storylines of the prisoners. There are quite a few developments, including the reappearance of Sara Tancredi, when she was supposed to be dead, and the return of Susan/Gretchen, even though she was supposed to be dead. We see here a reoccurring motif.
It’s needless to say that most of the fourth season was spent chasing after Scylla, the Company’s black book. We finally learn more about Scylla. It contains more than names, it comes a roadmap of technology that will enable to the Company to harness completely the solar energy of the sun.
The first part of the season is spent trying to get Scylla away from the Company. The crew is successful, but ends up being double crossed by Agent Self, their handler from the DHS. Self is an amateur at best. How he was able to orchestrate this is surprising. Even Gretchen is surprised.
