* At the end of Season 2 Michael stabs T-Bag in his forearm to get him arrested and incarcerated again after both fight in Panama. The reason is that the latter won't be able to take the weapon out of his body due to his other forearm and hand being not fully functional. Can't Bagwell just use his teeth, though? Hell, we've seen the guy making a bigger sacrifice earlier, after Bellick and Geary tie his artificial hand to a radiator in order to turn him in. Now the task seems to be easier, since he doesn't have to bite through the stitches and stuff... Yet he ends up in Sona.

** And a side question: why wasn't the pilot interrogated after it was seen that the former prisoners waved at his plane? Looking for even the smallest hints, it would be reasonable to do that by the FBI, ideally by an agent like Mahone.

* Didn't the plane leaving early in Season 1's finale ''Flight'' actually save the escapees' lives? I mean, cops certainly saw it flying away, and if they didn't find the fugitives in the surrounding area, they'd conclude that they must have gotten in, after which the police, FBI or whatever would most likely decide to either shoot the aircraft down or at least intercept it. I somewhat see the initial point of this, as they could potentially disappear and get off the radar in the airspace (which is also doubtful, especially after 9/11), but since Scofield & Co. were late, the guards were on their tales, and therefore it made little sense to still carry out the original escape plan.

-->'''{{Wentworth Miller}}''': The show is completely preposterous. But that aside, it's a great ride.

**First of all, it's not the FBI, it's Homeland Security. Second, they wanted a team that was off the books, not to mention expendable. And third, and more importantly, they needed Michael Scofield. He was the key. The others were only there for Scofield's benefit. No one else was as smart as him and no one else could have pulled off what he did.

** Barely. It was touched on slightly in the first season, though YourMileageMayVary on how plausible the explanation is: [[spoiler: Linc's father, Aldo Burrows, was a Company operative who went into hiding after he tried to leak the details about a new energy source being developed by Steadman's company to the public. They wanted to use Aldo's son as leverage against him, so they faked Steadman's murder and got Linc put on death row for it. Also, Linc had a job at a warehouse used by Steadman's company--he had been fired from the job on the day of Steadman's murder, so they thought he would seem like a likely suspect if Steadman ever wound up dead]]. In theory, [[spoiler: if Aldo had actually surrendered to the Company early on, the Company might have pulled strings to get Linc released]].
