Like Charlie Pace (Lost) before him, Prison Break’s Brad Bellick (played by Wade Williams) drowned this week, sacrificing himself to save his friends and their mission.

Starting off as one of the show’s principle antagonists, Bellick was one of Prison Break‘s many “love to hate” characters. As the series progressed Bellick spent a couple of years as the outsider, not a part of Scofield’s group but not on the right side of law either. By the fourth season, Sucre having vouched for him, Bellick became one of the good guys, often somewhat questionable in morals but usually pretty dependable.

This week’s ending was the perfect way to say goodbye to such a roller coaster of a character. Bellick was ultimately redeemed in his end and will be remembered as an integral part of the show.
