In this season the 8 that I mentioned in the season one escape split and go to their separated way. Brad Bellick, that worked at Fox River gets fired and goes after the 8 fugitives because of the reward money. FBI goes after them too assigning Alexander Mahone, who works for The Company, to the case.
The 8 reunite again to search for the money of DB Cooper, an prisioner that was supposed to escape with them but got wonded and could not escape due to his age.
The Governor Frank Tancredi, Saras father, gets killed and they go after The Company.
The brothers make it to Panama. Michael, T-Bag, Mahone, and Bellick are arrested by the Panamanian authorities and imprisoned at the Penitenciaría Federal de Sona.
This season is done in Panama.
Michael is inside of the prison with T-Bag, Mahone and Bellick as I said in the season two, and Lincoln is outside.
A Company agent, Gretchen Morgan, contacts Lincoln and tells him that they kidnapped his son, LJ, and Michaels love, Sara. The main goal of The Company doing this is to get James Whistler out of Sona.
Sona is the most dangerous prison of the world, where there are no guards inside, and it's rulled by Lechero.
Gretchen fakes Sara death.
At the end of the season, Michael, James Whistler, Mahone and Luis escape from Sona. Whistler is traded with LJ and Sofia with The Company.

Season four is all about Scylla, a device that contains a millionaire project about power cells.
Don Self is an agent of Homeland Security that will work together with Michael and his crew to catch Scylla. Scylla need a certain number of cards to be activated in the The Company headquarters, and in the first half of this season they'll be after those cards.
They find that Sara is alive and they find out that Don Self is going to betray them and sell they Scylla device to who pays the most.
Michael suffers from a disease (the same that his mother had) and gets operated by The Company.
At the end of the season they can get Scylla and Michaels and Lincolns mother gets killed.
