Sources confirm to me exclusively that the CBS procedural has tapped Perrineau to guest star as a death row inmate who ironically finds himself fighting for his life when he’s trapped in a prison riot.
And that’s not the episode’s only twist.
Hill Harper’s Hawkes also happens to be in the prison when the riot breaks out. What’s he doing there? Can’t say. I can, however, reveal that Perrineau’s convict drops a huge bombshell on Hawkes’ lap just moments before the melee erupts. Said bombshell forces Hawkes to come to terms with a part of his past he had hoped would never surface.
Look for the episode to air in April, which, coincidentally, could be right around the time Perrineau is poised to return to Lost as Michael.
Think you know the secret that will rock Hawkes’ world? Head to the comments!
