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.

And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Quinn falls in the well, he falls through and subsequently destroys the well cover. At the end of the episode when the Secret Service boys show up, an undamaged cover is lying next to the well, which Kellerman uses to cover it up. (00:29:30 - 00:38:30)

Trivia: S4E11: (spoiler) The Scylla alarm on the General's computer is visible on screen for a second or two. Below the flashing word 'alarm', it says it is in section AA-23. That's also the designation of the prison block where Princess Leia is being held in Star Wars. This was certainly done intentionally, but is also easy to miss.
