Prison Break

Season 5 generally

Question: In season 2 T-Bag says to Suzy, when he kidnaps her and the kids and takes them to his childhood home, that he cannot procreate and that he is the last in the line of Bagwells. How then does he have a son in season 5? Have I missed something?

Answer: Giving an in-universe answer; T-Bag didn't know he had a son at the time he was speaking to Susan. It's unlikely he got a fertility test done and may just be assuming, however, if he got a fertility test done after 1991, it could come back that he's impotent. But as far as he knows, he's the last Bagwell of his family. Then in season 5 he finds out David is his son. It's not unheard of for women to not let the fathers know about their children (or that they're even pregnant) or not give their child the father's last name. Giving an out-of-universe answer; writers simply retconned his past to allow him to have a child, forgot what they had written, or just hoped no-one would notice.

Factual error: When Michael fills the tank with water (below the stock room), he then strips his clothes off, and slides down a pipe and into the water at the bottom of the tank. Since the water level was way above him, the pipe he slid down and the access to get there would have been flooded also. There was no water in the pipe he slid down, so for that area to be dry, it would have to be above the water line.
