** [[EvilMatriarch Christina Rose Scofield]], who first appears in season 4 but is mentioned earlier, is a high-ranking leader of the Company and [[BigBadDuumvirate along with General Krantz]] is revealed to [[TheManBehindTheMan have been behind most of the events in the show]]. She's a [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] {{insufferable genius}} who [[ItsAllAboutMe only cares about her own advancement]]. She sacrifices her whole family; [[ParentalAbandonment she abandoned both her sons Lincoln and Michael]] while they were kids without saying a word, rejected her husband after [[DefectorFromDecadence he turned on the Company]] and had him hunted down, and arranged for her adopted son Lincoln (whom she despised for his relative lack of intelligence) to be [[FrameUp framed]] and executed for a staged political assassination of Terence Steadman. She tries to [[EnemyCivilWar kill General Krantz]] to steal a device called "Scylla" and sell it for its [[{{Greed}} profitable military use]], then kills her conspirator [[YouHaveFailedMe when he botches the hit]]. She pretends to sell the technology to a renowned Indian scientist/politician, but instead has him assassinated in public and frames Lincoln again, along with Michael, Mahone and Don Self. Christina intends to unleash a decades-long war between India and China [[WarForFunAndProfit so she can sell the tech to both sides for a quick profit]], knowing that it would quickly escalate into a global conflict. When Michael steals Scylla back from her, she kidnaps Lincoln and gives Michael [[HostageForMacGuffin an ultimatum for its return]] by shooting Lincoln in the lung to watch him die slowly. She later tries to kill Michael when he's ruined her plans one too many times.

Added DiffLines:

* AbortedArc: While not quite aborted completely, many of the plans for Season 2 had to be altered when Patricia Wettig's minor role on ''Series/BrothersAndSisters'' turned into a regular when that show became a surprise hit. Instead of having a prominent role through the season, Reynolds was instead moved to being busy as President and also added on how she was really a pawn of the Company rather than the mastermind she'd appeared to be. It did end up altering the Kellerman plotline as instead of being at her side as her bodyguard, Kellerman was cut out of the loop, realizing Reynolds never cared for him and the realization she was just a pawn would push him to aid the brothers.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: It can be a tall order to feel sympathy for Mahone after the death of his child considering all the people he killed back in Season 2.

* AccidentalInnuendo: When the PI crew sees a guard and the secretary leaving the break room, Sucre asks, "Do you think he found the hole?" and while he doesn't get it, Michael clearly does. Later, Sucre asks his cousin to tell Michael "I filled the hole". It's played straight.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Naturally there's loads of intentional sexual references--mostly of the PrisonRape variety--but in season 1, when the PI crew is tunneling out of prison. When a guard orders them out of the room, they're all concerned as to why... until they see him leave the room with the warden's secretary. Sucre doesn't seem to get the joke, but Michael clearly does.

** [[ScaryBlackMan Wyatt Mathewson]] from season 4 is a [[ProfessionalKiller professional hitman]] working for [[TheSyndicate the Company]] under its leader [[BigBad General Jonathan Krantz]]. He's the worst and most chilling PsychoForHire the Company has to offer, with nearly every scene involving him killing someone or [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing people to death]] while talking to them in a [[DissonantSerenity calm, soothing tone]]. He kills or tortures many people (mainly, anybody working against Krantz); this includes [[WouldHitAGirl women]] and even [[WouldHurtAChild murdering Cameron Mahone]] and [[BoomHeadshot blowing the child's head off]] post-mortem to mutilate the corpse just to spite Mahone further. When he's given intel on Scofield and his crew by the SixthRangerTraitor Roland, he [[FalseReassurance promises to give Roland $1 million and to let him go in exchange for the others]]. Once there, Wyatt progressively shoots Roland in the kneecap, then his thigh, and then in his stomach to watch him bleed out.
