She reappears in the finale of season 4. She is held captive by Company agents but is released unharmed by the General after Sucre and C-Note apprehend him. Four years later, she is shown to be romantically involved with Lincoln.
Sofia does not appear in season 5, but in "Progeny" Lincoln mentions that he and Sofia have broken up. Anthony, is introduced to the series in the third season as a high-ranking Company field-operative in charge of Whistler's breakout from Sona.
Despite claiming to have killed Sara, season 4 revealed she lied and Sara is in fact alive. She is ruthless and impatient, performing swift executions without hesitation if there is any obstacle to her plan, but is known to have a soft side for the few individuals that she cares about, for example her daughter. She is shown to be able to withstand torture and is exceptionally skilled in martial arts.
Her character is mainly an antagonist, and later an occasional, uneasy ally to the protagonists. Gretchen is the main antagonist of the third season. The character is first seen covering scratch wounds on her face with makeup.
Later, she meets up with Lincoln at a bar and informs him that The Company has kidnapped both Sara and LJand that in order for them to survive, Michael must break James Whistler out of Sona prison. When Lincoln tries to rescue both of them, she claimed to have personally beheaded Sara and warned the brothers not to play games.
When the escape ultimately fails, Gretchen's supervisor, General Krantz, forced her to carry out the "Bang and Burn" Operation, which involved flying helicopters into Sona to retrieve Whistler. Due to Michael's intervention, this operation fails. Hoping that Lincoln could once again be included into the plan, Gretchen allowed Lincoln to meet his son at an abandoned shack.
Michael's confession caused her to be subsequently tortured by waterboarding by Sona guards. However, Gretchen was able to escape from their clutches. In her final appearance of the season, she is seen driving away in a car with Whistler and Mahone who had seemingly made a deal with Whistler to work for The Company after the escape. In the season 4 premiere, Gretchen appears with Whistler on a mission to retrieve one of the Scylla cards, which fails when Whistler betrays The Company by stealing the original card, and Gretchen is punished by the general for her failure.
Initially assumed dead, she is revealed to be alive at the end of "Breaking and Entering", locked away and tortured for information. She has only a minimal role in the next few episodes, but finally escapes custody in the fifth episode. It is revealed that Rita's child Emily is actually Gretchen's daughter, and the character shows her first hints of a softer side when they appear in scenes together. Following this, Gretchen recovers and enters the main plot to obtain Scylla. She tracks down T-Bag, who is in possession of Whistler's bird book, and forces him to co-operate.
She eventually becomes a reluctant ally to Michael and his team, which includes Sara. In an effort to make amends with Sara, whom Gretchen tortured in Panama, she meets with her in "The Price" and offers her to get even by whipping Gretchen with a bull whip. Sara declines, instead stating that Gretchen will one day pay for the guard she murdered that helped Sara escape.
In "Greatness Achieved", Gretchen is revealed to be a former lover of the General who is also the father of her daughter, Emily when she infiltrates his office with a gun seeking revenge. While she appears to soften at his manipulations, it is later revealed that she is merely playing along to gain inside information. Gretchen and T-Bag serve mainly as wild cards in these episodes, playing Michael's team, with their real plan revealed to be using them to get Scylla, only to then steal it and sell it to a Chinese crime syndicate for million.
In their scenes together, Gretchen is often the more ruthless character, while T-Bag appears more hesitant as he grows attached to salesman Cole Pfeiffer, the alias he is living under to facilitate the break-in.
In order to speed things along, Gretchen accepts the task of trying to steal the general's Scylla card by seducing him in "Quite Riot". He uncovers her true motivation, however, and she barely survives by pleading with him, confirming to the viewers that he is the father of her child.
On the day of the break-in to steal Scylla, Gretchen and T-Bag stake out the Gate corporation with machine guns, preparing to ambush the team when they return. Gretchen and a reluctant T-Bag take the entire company hostage when someone spots her gun, and they are forced to flee when a federal agent arrives. In the next few episodes, Gretchen shares a plotline with Don Self, a Homeland Security agent that Michael's team reports to.
After betraying the team and taking Scylla, Self threatens the life of Gretchen's daughter for her to help him find a new buyer. Gretchen complies and in "Going Under" they meet with the buyer, but fails when men appear to take them into Company custody.
Her character is later written out when she is shot by the buyer and the rest of the team leave her behind to be arrested by the police.
When Gretchen sees Lincoln and Sucre standing outside the prison, she demands that Sara take her along in any escape plan they may be developing. While initially threatening, Gretchen eventually reveals to Sara that she simply desires to see her daughter, Emily, and to give her a necklace which she made herself.
She proves her loyalty by saving Sara from an attacker looking to collect a bounty put out by the General, who is incarcerated in a neighboring prison. When the escape commences, Gretchen attacks a guard and gets stabbed in the leg. Knowing that she cannot escape without help, Gretchen asks Sara to choose to either leave her behind or help her, and Sara lends her hand.

Finally, as Sara and Gretchen are on their way, Gretchen is spotted by guards. When asked whether or not she is alone, Gretchen refuses to reveal Sara's presence, and gets taken back into custody.
This is the last time she is seen. Before leaving however, Sara sees the necklace Gretchen made for her daughter on the ground, and, knowing she would have been caught had Gretchen betrayed her, Sara secures it, so that she may pass it along to Emily. After their arrest, he recruits the protagonists and several other characters into a covert "A-Team" of sorts in a mission to take down The Company once and for all.
The character plays a prominent role in the last season. Not much is known about him but he is stated as a hardworking Homeland Security Agent who tries to bring down The Company but has yet to be successful.
He began working for Homeland Security in Agent Self later told Mahone that he had a wife that died while giving birth - his unborn infant died too. A picture of his wife is seen at his desk several times and he once played a message of her voice at his answering machine. Self's character plays the role of supervisor and ally to the team in the first half of the season, but later becomes an antagonist.
In "Scylla", he tasks Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield with the mission of bringing down The Company and finding "Scylla", a key card that stores a wealth of information about The Company. He promises them full exoneration if the brothers can obtain Scylla and hand it over to the government. As SucreMahoneBellickSaraand Roland Glenn, a computer hijacker, come along with them, Self points out that if they do it there is no coming back and that he is their boss.
Most notably in "Shut Down" were Self, under pressure from his boss, reluctantly tries to cancel the mission after it is discovered that Scylla is six key cards, not just one.
Self agrees to let them find the rest of the Scylla cards after the team successfully identifies the other cardholders. When General Krantz, the leader of The Company, discovers Self had images of him enhanced, Wyatt confronts Self and tells him that the General "likes his privacy.
He often threatens to kill those who oppose him, and in "Blow Out", after Mahone becomes a liability to the mission by getting arrested by the police, Self wants to have Mahone killed, something Michael refuses to do. Instead the team rescue Mahone, without Self's assistance. In "The Legend" the team grows a dislike for Self when he seems unwilling to hold up his end of the deal and send Bellick's body home after he died in the previous episode.
However, in "Quiet Riot", he is actively supportive of the mission and seems to genuinely want to bring down The Company. Self's character shows his true colours in the episode "Selfless," where he apparently works with the team as they finally manage to recover the Scylla, but ultimately betrays both them and his government superiors by stealing the recovered Scylla and keeping it for himself. His real character motivation is revealed to be finding a 'buyer' for Scylla, an apparently private interest.
Realizing that the needs to find a new buyer after the first one is killed, Self murders his partner, federal agent Miriam Holtz, in cold blood in order to get to T-Bag, a prisoner she was guarding.

From this point onwards, the character begins to share a more active role in the plot by being out in the field and appearing in more action-oriented scenes.
In the next few episodes, he is an antagonist to Michael and the rest of the team. After faking his death and attempting to frame Michael's team for it in "Deal or No Deal", Self uses T-Bag to track down the family of Gretchen Morgan, a former Company operative that has gone rogue. Self threatens the life of her daughter to gain her co-operation and the two characters share the same plotline for the next few episodes, as they use Gretchen's contacts to find another buyer for Scylla.
However, at the end of the episode, Self finds himself with a problem: While his apprehension of T-Bag led to Gretchen and a buyer, he cannot sell Scylla while it is incomplete. Thus, the episode ends with him ultimately demanding the missing part of Scylla from Michael, who instead suggests he "Come and get it".
In the next episode, "Just Business" Self seemingly makes a deal with Michael to sell Scylla together, while both parties are actually plotting against each other. Self and Gretchen plants an x-ray device in the warehouse to try to find the missing piece of scylla while the team are planning to take the rest of Scylla back from Self. In the end it is Self who is successful, as he and Gretchen obtains the missing piece and head out to meet Gretchen's contact, a conduit named Vikan.
Self is next seen waiting with Gretchen for the Scylla buyer. So before Lincoln and Sucre could track them, Self and Gretchen destroy their cell phones and flee. They're next seen at a phone store and look injured with bloody scratches on their faces. They buy a new phone and tell the store owner not to tell anyone they were there.
They head to the warehouse to wait for the buyer. The buyer arrives and Self and Gretchen hold the buyer at gunpoint. Gretchen forces Self to hand Scylla to the buyer or they will be in grave danger. Self hands over Scylla. They hear noise and Self and Gretchen go to investigate, but are betrayed by the buyer when he points his gun at them and they run for cover and a shootout occurs. The buyer shoots Self in the shoulder and flees with the money and Scylla.
Later they are to work with Lincoln and T-Bag to recover Scylla. Self's character plays a less prominent role in the season's final episodes, where he works with his new team to find Scylla and track down the new buyer, which turns out to be Lincoln and Michael's mother, Christina Rose Scofield. When the team fails in their assignment, the general decides to punish them by ordering the death of one of their family members and singles out Self's wife, who is actually alive and in a persistent vegetative state due to Self's drunk and reckless behavior.
Self then escapes, but gets arrested when at the hospital, where one of Christina's men injects him with a serum that gradually leaves him in the same state his wife was in.
He refuses to help federal agents with locating Burrows and Scofield because they failed at protecting him, and is left in his vegetative state for the rest of his life. In his final appearance in the epilogue of the Series Finale, set four years after the events of the rest of the episode, Self is revealed to be living at a rest facility, using a wheelchair, mute and drooling. He and Sara were married sometime during the seven years after Michael's supposed death.
In the season premiere, he is shot in the leg by someone supposedly sent to kill Sara and Mike due to Lincoln investigating Michael's death, and spends the next two episodes recovering in the hospital. During this time, Sara finds out Michael is still alive under the name Kaniel Outis, and tells him.
He tells her that Michael may have succumbed to madness due to the choices he made. After being released, he, Sara and Mike lie low at his parents' lake house per Sara's choice, though he says the university has resources that can be used to find their attackers.
T-Bag eventually tracks the attackers to a meeting with him. Sara confronts him on this, and he claims he was paying them off to leave him alone, and later seems to prove this by having them arrested with a tracker in the money, forgiving Sara for her paranoia. However, Michael later reveals him to be "Poseidon", a rogue CIA agent that he has been working for in exchange for exoneration of himself and others. The limited series is a sequel to the original seriestaking place several years later, and features Miller and Purcell reprising their roles as well as the return of other original characters.
Sara Tancredia Professor of Economics game theory at Cornell who has been described as, "dubious of the government but still has a bit of fight in him when it comes to taking them on. Prew plays "funny, crazy and pretty damn sharp" Whip; Yune plays Ja, who is described as a "Korean identity thief, who disheveled appearance belies his genius"; and Mouzakis plays Van Gogh, "a bad-ass nut-job". He's a brilliant actor — but Paul honestly said to me, 'I don't know what to do with that character'.
He didn't want to just bring everybody back, so that the audience go, 'Oh, look, it's Bill Fichtner again!
But I think the characters that are there, each of our moments that we have, are key to the storytelling, which is how it should be. Purcell was immediately airlifted from Marrakesh to Casablanca for treatment where he recovered.
Filming of the series was not substantially disrupted due to the accident. It's very exciting because the show was such a good show but nobody has contacted me at this point. I loved all the people involved.
