Prison Break Season 3 pulls a John Doe?

In some of my previous articles I explain the similarities between an old show and a new show. In this article I explain the possibility that a new show is creating a plot twist that puts it on par with an old show.

You see, season 1 of Prison Break dealt with the escape. Season 2 dealt with the money, the truth and the run. At the end of Season 2 Lincoln is given a full pardon after the truth came out and the brothers have the money. So that wraps the show right? It’s over, they escaped, Lincoln is a free man and they have a ton of money to live happily ever after, right? Wrong.

Prison Break season 3 will take the show in a whole new direction. There were plenty of clues to the new direction.

Season 2, Episode 14 was named John Doe. A funny pun since Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) played the lead character on John Doe.

Another slight but significant clue is the secret agency the General works for. If you watched John Doe, then you know of the Phoenix Organization.

The Phoenix Organization had a character (Trenchcoat) that didn’t speak even though he could. Prison Break season 2 introduced a character (The General) that doesn’t speak even though he can.

The General works for a secret organization much like The Phoenix Organization that positions people in scenarios to see the resulting outcome.

I believe that Prison Break season 3 will also be more like LOST in the fact that every episode will be half what’s happening now and half what happened in the past. Every episode will have flashback elements. Why, you ask? Because we are going to find out that the General has been pulling strings since before Lincoln was targeted.

Much like LOST uses flashbacks to show us previous characters that have since died, Prison Break season 3 will flashback to the prison allowing dead characters to reprise their rolls as we find out the General’s involvement in character placement.

You may have noticed that T-Bag was directed to go to Panama, as well as the scene where Bullock got shot. T-Bag was a pawn to get the brothers to Panama. Who was pulling the strings? I believe it’s the General.

In the penultimate scene of the season finale, it became obvious that the only brother that is wanted or needed is Michael Scofield.

My biggest prediction is that the General targeted Michael Scofield from the very beginning. He may have chosen Michael because he verges on savant and knew his capability and his drive to break his brother out of prison. But for him to try as hard as he did, his brother, Lincoln Burrows, would have to be innocent. Does that mean that the General was part of the setup to frame Lincoln? Yes, I believe it does. But, I also believe that those people are unaware they are part of a much larger conspiracy.

I think season 3 will reveal the General’s involvement in many of the previous season’s scenarios that lead the brothers to where they are now.

Why? What purpose would the General have to drive Scofield to get put in prison then break out? It could simply be to find the strengths and weaknesses of the prison or the man. We may also find out that Michael Scofield is not an isolated case. There may be many other people being driven unknowingly by the General to accomplish similar tasks

Kyle XY, a remake of John Doe?

I’m working an a new theory. It’s similar to my Lost/Earth 2 theory.

This one deals with the new show Kyle XY and the 2002/2003 TV show John Doe.

I watched all of the first season of Kyle XY. And John Doe reruns just recently started playing.

Here is a list of the similarities between Kyle XY/John Doe.

I’m not going to list when occurrences happen, which episode or in any particular order. I’m only listing the things that are remarkably similar.
(k) = Kyle XY, (j) = John Doe

1. (k/j) The series is named after the lead character.

2. (k/j) The series starts with the main character waking up naked in a clearing in the woods (wet/fetal position) with no memory of who he is.

3. (k/j) He’s befriended by someone (Tom Foss/Digger) who is obviously a member of the organization responsible for his condition.

4. (k/j) He struggles to find out who he is and why he has no past memories.

5. (k/j) The show was set in Seattle Washington.

6. (k/j) The show is actually filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia.

7. (k/j) The show’s tag line was “Who is Kyle XY?”/”Who is John Doe?”

8. (k/j) He has unexplained body marks. Kyle has no belly button/John has an unknown symbolic scar.

9. (k/j) He says “Who am I?”

10. (k/j) Mysterious circular symbols are used. Both shows have one episode devoted to the search for the origin of the symbol.

11. (k/j) His name was made up because he isn’t aware of any previous name.

12. (k/j) He is being watched by a secret organization (unknown/Phoenix Organization).

13. (k/j) He provides narration for each show.

14. (k/j) He has discovered a 30 year old photo of someone who looked like he does now.

I know some information was released after John Doe was canceled, but I’m not sure I believe what was said.
Yes, it was from the creator. But, he had a good idea. I doubt he was just going to give it away. Especially if he thought it could be brought back in another form later.

My Theory:
I think both Kyle and John are clones that were designed for a specific purpose. That purpose is the transfer of someone’s consciousness from a stored database to a new host body. John Doe had an episode that dealt with this. Kyle XY hasn’t yet.

I believe John Doe had all factual information uploaded to his brain before any consciousness was transfered to him. Then he either escaped or was broken out and left in the woods. I believe Kyle XY was broken out before any information could be uploaded to his brain. Then he was left in the woods.

I’ll add more as it comes to light for me.
