Prison Break Season 1 All Episodes
Taglines: Break In. Break Out. Save Your Brother’s Life (Season 1).
The first season follows the rescue of Lincoln Burrows, who is accused of murdering Terrence Steadman, the brother of Vice President of the United States, Caroline Reynolds. Lincoln is sentenced to death and is incarcerated in Fox River State Penitentiary where he awaits his execution. Lincoln’s brother, brilliant structural engineer Michael Scofield, is convinced of Lincoln’s innocence and formulates an elaborate escape plan. In order to gain access to Fox River, Michael commits an armed robbery which results in him being sentenced to Fox River. In prison, Michael befriends the prison doctor Sara Tancredi when he pretends to suffer from Type 1 diabetes, in order to gain daily access to the prison’s infirmary, where he receives his daily insulin shots. The brothers’ fight to ward off the execution is aided by their lifelong friend Veronica Donovan, who begins to investigate the conspiracy that put Lincoln in jail. However, they are hindered by covert agents, members of an organization called “The Company”. The Company was responsible for framing Lincoln, and they did so because of Lincoln’s father Aldo Burrows, and his former connections with The Company. The brothers, along with six other inmates, Fernando Sucre, Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell, Benjamin Miles “C-Note” Franklin, David “Tweener” Apolskis, John Abruzzi, and Charles “Haywire” Patoshik, who come to be known as the Fox River Eight, escape in the episode immediately prior to the season finale, after using their prison industry privileges to dig an escape tunnel underneath the prison.
