Fans received the surprise of their lives as Paul Kellerman (Paul Adelstein) died in “Prison Break” Season 5 episode 4 “The Prisoner’s Dilemma.” It looked like the 47-year-old star’s character got killed for him not to spill everything that he knew about Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller).

In an interview with the television serial drama’s creator Paul Scheuring (via Cinema Blend), he revealed his reason for killing one of the show’s important characters. In fact, his motive is just plain and straightforward.

Kellerman’s death

“I always have wanted blood,” Scheuring said.

The 48-year-old screenwriter explained that if he killed an important character by having action scenes, viewers would think other vital roles can also die. What happened to Kellerman can fill other sequences with more motives as their audience knows that they are not afraid to kill people. Hence, the film director revealed that there are more at least two important roles going to meet their death in “Prison Break” Season 5.

From the looks of it, Kellerman really was the first one that had to go as he was soon going to solve the mystery of Scofield’s detention. He was about to find out the truth on the side of the government. Kellerman knew things too early. Thus he needed to take his final bow.

The possible characters to meet their death

Moreover, as Scheuring revealed that two more characters are going to bid their last goodbye, one of them might be Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell). As Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Scofield managed to die and return, it is not far that the 47-year-old “The Flash” actor might have the same fate.

If Burrow gets killed off, there will be a big possibility that he will return in the next or new season. Other possible characters that could meet their demise are Benjamin Miles 'C-Note' Franklin (Rockmond Dunbar) and Fernando Sucre (Amaury Nolasco).

Ness’ involvement in Kellerman’ death

Meanwhile, the recent episode of “Prison Break” Season 5 dropped the biggest question concerning who is the actual person behind the mysterious Poseidon.

In the previous installment’s ending, there was a big twist involving Tancredi’s new husband Jacob Anton Ness (Mark Feuerstein).

It has been said that he might have involvement in what happened to Kellerman. Hence, there might be a big possibility that he is this season’s villain. Find out in the next episode of “Prison Break” Season 5, “Contingency,” on May 2 on Fox.
