**[[SmugSnake Jacob Anton Ness]] is a noted economics professor from the University of Ithaca who is also known as [[RogueAgent Poseidon]], a [[ItsAllAboutMe narcissistic]] deep-cover {{CIA}} agent who serves as the BigBad of the 2017 revival. Revealed to be TheManBehindTheMan of the DirectToVideo movie ''The Final Break'', he tries to press Michael Scofield into faking his death and joining his rogue cell 21 Void by threatening to imprison Michael's family and friends for life without parole. When Michael initially refuses, Jacob has Michael's pregnant wife Sara Scofield incarcerated for Christina Scofield's death. After Michael is forced to fake his death, Jacob enslaves him into breaking out terrorists and rogue agents—including the head of Yemen's [[TheTheocracy ISIS]]--who act against America's interests. Knowing Michael would eventually betray him, Jacob kills CIA Deputy Chief Harlan Gaines and [[FrameUp frames Michael]] for Gaines's death before he leaves him to die in Yemen's Ogygia prison. Over the next four years, he erases Michael's identity and marries his wife. During this time he proceeds to [[{{Gaslighting}} gaslight]] her into believing Michael is dead, going as far as framing Kellerman for hacking her phone after he has him killed and hiring his henchmen A&W and Van Gogh to terrorize her and Michael's son Mike before having the henchmen imprisoned to prove Jacob's "innocence." When she finds out Jacob is indeed Poseidon, he kidnaps Mike and Sara and tricks Mike into teaching him how to draw maps in the shapes of child-like drawings, all while planning to have Michael and Sara trapped and killed in a vacation home. When they escape the home, Jacob abducts Mike and brainwashes him into believing that Sara died in the house and that Michael is a terrorist named Kaniel Outis.

* ArcFatigue: Though the season was reduced to thirteen episodes, the third season was criticized by some for trying to repeat the magic of the first season but failing to fully replicate the tension or excitement, and instead felt ''longer'' than the first season's full slate of episodes.

* {{Narm}}: Callies refused to return for season three [[spoiler:just to be killed off]] and it's extremely obvious a body double is being used for Sara in her scenes [[spoiler:(not to mention the head in the box really doesn't look anything like her)]], making them somewhat hard to take seriously.
