Default Why do Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield have different last names?

They always refer to each other as brothers..but are they really only half brothers with different dads? It's referenced that they have the same mother, but I could swear they have the same dad..of whom left when they were kids.

And if you don't understand the above, you might as well click back

wikipedia lists that Michael takes his mother's maiden name when daddy ditched the family before he's born.

I don't remember ever hearing it on the show though.

This is Prison Break that you're talking about - you have to forget about reality for the hour that you're watching it.

Haven't watched an episode yet this season. As far as I'm concerned, "Prison Break" ended when they "broke" out of "prison."

Didn't Scohfield change his name so it wouldn't be obvious that he was Licoln's borther?
