Escaping from Fox River

The Fox River Eight was the name the media gave to the eight convicts that notoriously broke out of the Fox River State Penitentiary. The eight fugitives had been chased the moment they got over the prison walls. The eight men the show revolves around.


2005 in Fox River

Michael Scofield robbed a bank in order to get into Fox River so he could break his brother, Lincoln Burrows, out before his execution. Ten inmates (the escapees, Charles Westmoreland and Manche Sanchez) eventually were escaping. However, Westmoreland died of a wound and Manche was caught. Haywire, Tweener and T-Bag wound up alone while the other five missed the plane that was supposed to take them away and had to run. They ultimately went their own ways (except for Michael and Lincoln) although they met again while searching for Westmoreland's money stash. FBI Agent Alexander Mahone killed Tweener and Haywire and C-Note was put in the witness protection program for protection against Mahone. Michael and T-Bag got put in a prison in Panama, Sona. Michael later escapes and Fernando is put into Sona. Lincoln has been cleared of all charges and is living in Panama. Three days after Michael escaped Sona, T-Bag and Sucre escape as well, being the three escapees to continue to elude authorities, without death or exoneration like the other five. In the end, Michael and Sucre are exonerated after Scylla was handed over to the government, and T-Bag is tossed back at Fox River. Michael later died within the next four years, leaving Lincoln, Sucre and C-Note the only free members of the Fox River Eight that are alive. However T-Bag was made it out of Fox River, but was sent back by Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows.


Only Benjamin Franklin, Lincoln Burrows and Fernando Sucre were exonerated and weren't captured or killed. Michael Scofield killed himself with the electricity. Haywire committed suicide. David Apolskis was murdered by Alexander Mahone. Abruzzi was gunned down by SWAT. T-Bag was sent back to Fox River.

T-Bag, escaped from Fox River again, but he was captured few days later.
