Storyline

According to Michael's plan, Mahone hands a fake Scylla to Christina. It's booby-trapped but ends up in the hands of FBI Agent, Chris Franco. Bagwell meets Sucre and C-note, but is caught while they hope that an offer of help is real. The General catches the brothers and raises the stakes with more kidnapped relatives. Michael manages to escape with Scylla. The gang must decide whether to believe an offer from Paul Kellerman, and hand it to UN representatives in exchange for full pardons. Written by KGF Vissers

A smart way to end the show
17 May 2009 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

In the finale first part when Franklin revealed his plans to Sucre I was a little worry for the brothers. Then he told him Kellerman was the man pulling strings and it didn't reassure me at all. All along it was really hard to anticipate things and as usual the writers played with our mind. Moreover T-Bag was in big trouble considering he failed to prevent the knight from saving the damsel in distress. So he tried his best not to be killed and convince the General that he was still a useful asset. One of his scene with other characters should even make laugh out loud. In fact I think our feelings are mesmerized because we know it's the last episode ever.

But this episode was also about rescuing Lincoln. Mahone continued as planned but as expected dealing with the mother wasn't easy. So Scylla continued its puzzling dance like a ship caught in a storm. Waves after waves the characters struggled to get their hands on it but finally the story ended. The fight was finally over and the decisions that had to be made weren't easy to take. But of course the most interesting thing wasn't actually the Scylla arc but what happened to the people revolving around it, like planets around a sun. Again the direction and editing were flawless and each character had a scene dedicated to covering its "after Scylla life". Watching these scenes you should have conflicted feelings because it's not all black and white, like in wars there have been many casualties during these four seasons. The important thing is that the end is smart and done the right way. I even see it as a TV show model for future productions. The very last scene also managed to bring back so many memories that it's nearly impossible to put in words how great it is. I can only compare it to the end of Forrest Gump, when the feather begins to fly in the wind. It was just magical and fans will never forget it.
