Here’s How ‘The Flash’ Just Blew ‘Prison Break’ Fans’ Minds

FLA110b_0393b_article_story

The Flash” returned from its midseason hiatus last night, and it wasn’t just an episode of “The Flash.” It was also an unofficial “Prison Break” sequel.

Yes, “Revenge of the Rogues” featured the return of Captain Cold…


As well as the introduction of the hot-headed Heat Wave…


But in another universe, these two go by different names. Leonard Snart is actually Michael Scofield…


And Heat Wave is actually Lincoln Burrows …


And they’re brothers.


In the “Flash” reality, they’re brothers-in-arms only, bringing their hot-and-cold chaos upon all who stand in the way between their war on the Scarlet Speedster.


In both realities, Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows, as well as Captain Cold and Heat Wave, share at least one common interest…


…prison breaks.

Seeing actors Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell together again was an absolute blast for any and all fans of Fox’s four-season prison escape drama, especially because the actors and writers were all so clearly in on the sight gag.

And here’s what’s even better: The “Prison Break” reunion within the CW superhero space could get even bigger. Behold, two of the show’s other great characters, murderer Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell and mobster John Abruzzi:


You’ll recognize T-Bag, aka actor Robert Knepper, as the Clock King on both “Flash” and “Arrow”…


…and Abruzzi, aka Peter Stormare, as the second coming of Count Vertigo.


Four of the Fox River Eight already exist in the “Arrow” and “The Flash” universes. Can you imagine the other four joining Barry Allen’s rogues gallery? Scofield and Sucre, together again? The possibilities are too much for one man’s “Prison Break” loving heart to take, so if you don’t mind, I’m going to go ahead and have a nerdgasm-induced heart attack over here.
