A great story is easily driven by its complex, compelling, remarkably exquisite characters. Whether they’re heroes or villains or somewhere in between the spectrum, it’s their stories that make the series riveting — their journey, their life, their interactions. They are the reason a series is special. They are the heart. And while there are a number of wonderfully written characters on TV, these are my personal favorites.

“Wine Dark Sea” | Prison Break
Another incredible week of television concluded with Once Upon A Time’s gorgeous season finale marking the end of a chapter. Madam Secretary reminded its viewers that it isn’t scared of being raw, truthful, and accepting of human rights. Brooklyn Nine-Nine gave us two more hysterical episodes, which also beautifully showcased friendship. The Americans completely changed gear with an unexpected confession from Elizabeth. And Chicago P.D.’s finale left us with a number of questions but fantastic moments to remember. However, as I expected in my anticipation for this episode, Prison Break’s “Wine Dark Sea” gave us the perfect Michael and Sara reunion.
