Burn Notice Season 7 Premiere Review: Reunited and It Feels So Good

Burn Notice S07E01: "New Deal"


I got to say I’m pretty amped to return to Burn Notice for its final season. Downright psyched! I’m not a sadist or anything; I am unhappy that after this run we won’t be seeing Sam, Fi, Mike, and Jesse improvising explosives out of dog toys and cotton candy machines or what have you, but after six heart-pumping, guest-filled seasons, viewers can get wise to the various shifting around of bad guys, double-crossings, ill-advised sacrifices, and surprising character deaths ultimately designed to keep the core dynamic in play. Going into a storyline that has a for-sure ending of its own, as well as an ending for the whole series—and, for that matter, the entire Burn Notice universe (well, unless they keep those graphic novels going)—lends this show a calculated agenda normally reserved for heavily serialized shows like The Americans or Breaking Bad. It's an aspect that can only improve the story, which is why, as stated above, I am "amped." This guy knows what I'm talking about...

With an impending finality a mere 13 episodes away (or 12, not counting this one), it looks like the main hurdle Michael’s going to have to face is winning Fi back, or at least infiltrating his way back into the Friend Zone. I can already here him dictating now: "...when approaching the Friend Zone you have to acknowledge the past, yet make no attempts toward a romantic future..." 

As part of a role-call catch up with the Burn crew—the kind you might see at the beginning of a sequel, we learned out that Jesse has started working private security or running a model agency out of a Miami high-rise (seriously, what is his job now?); Sam is cooling his heels poolside in the Bikini District on Elsa’s dime; Maddie’s growing out her hair, not smoking, and fighting for custody of Charlie Westen (Ruth just can’t seem to kick the hooch); and Fiona’s running jobs with her new live-in boyfriend Carlos Cruz (the handsome Stephen Martines of The Vampire Diaries and The Closer). You know, on The Closer this dude played a character named "Ricardo Ramos," and I wonder if alliteration is a thing that damns Latino actors specifically, or just any character that writers don’t really care about. "Yeah sure, the mailman's name is Tommy Tommerson. NOW WHERE IS MY JAMBA JUICE?" Oh, and this is all taking place nine months after the end of Season 6.

Yeah so remember when Michael made a deal with the CIA to free his friends? The deal was to head down to the Dominican Republic and work deep cover on a terrorist leader named Randall Burke (holy crap Adrian Pasdar beefed UP; you've also seen him in Heroes and Political Animals). I quite enjoyed Westen's take on the perils of being someone else and thought it clever to see him subjected to the drink as part of his cover, when down in his hard, hard heart that booze is probably nursing real wounds. Human Fist Michael Westen is too much of a badass to go on a regular bender; he has to be on a mission to do it.  

Conveniently, his "damaged goods" status was ultimately effective in attracting this Burke fellow, who sent Westen on a quickie mission to explode $20 million worth of satellite decryption technology/do some spy stuff. I appreciate how dedicated Burke was to honor, citing his righthand guy Pablo as a hero, demanding that Pablo accept Westen as a respected teammate, even showing genuine concern over Pablo's final moments. This reintroduction to Westen, by the by, represented one of my favorite disgraceful scenarios an action hero sometimes finds himself in after a job goes sour: drunkenly prizefighting in a grimy bar. But seriously, what a well-filmed sequence. That looked good, man. I mean, obviously the show want to put its best foot forward starting things off again, and I felt like I could taste the rowdy sweat of these brawl enthusiasts. Perhaps one day I will have that very same honor.

I like Michael’s new boss, Andrew Strong (Jack Coleman, who played the Senator on The Office and Noah Bennet on Heroes—hey two heroes in the same episode!). He’s affable, driven, and spent eight years trying to bring down this dude Burke, even letting his marriage fall by the wayside in the interim. Are there any happily married government agents out there? Warning to any government agents reading this: Go tell your wife you love her. She misses you and wishes things could just go back to the way they were before LANGLEY. If past seasons are any indication, Strong’ll either be killed or revealed to be an actual villain, but I am more than happy to be surprised. Maybe he and Maddie will develop a May-December Romance and Strong will become Lil' Charlie Westen's adopted father. They can all go on Disney cruises together. Hell, it’s the last season baby, anything can happen!

Apparently no one from Westen’s crew is having that much trouble moving on—a reminder of how independent those of us in the spy-for-hire business have to play it to protect both ourselves and our hearts (aw dang I just burned myself). I had a theory a little while back that all the shadiest people in this world are named "Mike." I’m biased because of personal experience, but I have known no fewer than four Mikes in my life that between them all have been addicted to smack, neglected child support, resold candy bars door-to-door under the false pretense of charity work, and got some illegal immigrants arrested from a Jewish summer camp. Now, I’m not saying Westen is as low as these fellas, but maybe to his pals, he fits the shady bill, and maybe his friends are happy to cut ties with him. Maybe Michael Westen is a shady person? Like if he's indirectly exposing old chums to claymores?

In all seriousness, "New Deal" was paced perfectly, with the B-mission of Jesse and Sam investigating the multi-identitied snoop of a Mystery Man (Nick E. Tarabay from Spartacus, who is sometimes French but also Australian) and the C-mission of Fi keeping an eye on Maddie and her custody proceedings (poor Charlie almost went to a foster home) all coming about organically. These disparate threads reintroduced us to the gang, and laid the groundwork for the team to come back together in the name of the man who totally led them into trouble. Plus we got to learn about blast radiuses and the intricacies of child services. 

I’m still skeptical about Fi being serious with Carlos, knowing the passionate history she and Michael share, but it’s not unbelievable that the first step she would take to getting over her old flame would be finding a new partner. And hey, Carlos seemed pretty good with children, flipping Charlie upside down and playfully hyper-extending the boy's arm in the way that kids love (but that would send a Rigid Ronnie like me to the E.R.) 

I guess what I'm babbling toward is the fact that these days, as TV contends with New Media and predictable storytelling conventions, I would not place it outside the realm of possibility that Matt Nix and his crew could give Westen an ending without Fi. It’d be sad, yes, but maybe Westen’s fulfillment lies beyond someone he’s had such a torrid terrible time with (cough: "yeah right").

Westen’s task to prove himself to old warrior buddy Burke ("You just signed up for the world’s most effective detox, Mike. You take a drink, I put a bullet in the back of your head.") functioned as a quick, appropriate Burn Notice adventure that included a nice C-4 boom-boom and ended in Westen outliving former number-two Pablo (Philip Anthony Rodriguez from The Secret Life of the American Teenager). It puzzled me that Pablo would have connections to the Miami Mystery Man, yet still be inferior to Burke. Either Pablo was a bigger deal than he appeared to be, or M.M.M. knew to get in contact with an underling. Or, if they’re a duo, it makes whatever outfit the two are a part of seem small-time, but on the rise. Or it makes Burke's outfit seem small-time, for him to be infiltrated twice and not even know it. I guess the question is, how did the Mystery Man know to contact Pablo after learning just basic, general info about Michael striking a deal with the CIA? WHAT IS THE FACTS?

And so, with the introduction of a new boyfriend, a new villain, new bosses, and new status quos to be dismantled, this final Burn Notice season premiere efficiently got the ball rolling again like the show had never left. Overall, "New Deal" managed to set the stage for an exciting race to the finish line while still functioning as a standalone entertaining adventure. With Westen returning to Miami off the grid, and his crew already located near a possible Big Bad, this showdown has no choice but to be the biggest yet. If you’re tired of this world already, this probably didn’t mean much; however, if you’re like me and you're curious to see how things wrap up, then strap in and hold on, because it looks to be a wild ride. Right, Mystery Man?


BURNING QUESTIONS

– What is the Mystery Man's ultimate goal?

– Is the love between Fi and Carlos strong enough to withstand Westen’s charm?

– Do you like Michael Westen with his disgrace beard?

– What is Jesse’s current occupation?

– Will Charlie’s custody be yanked away from Maddie?

– Did you laugh when Sam was going off about his masseuse Sandino?

– Did you think it was funny when Strong was all "...they’re never going to see the sun again" and clearly there were window-blind shadows on Maddie? Or were you like, "eh, it’s TV: yeesh!"

– Not a question, but I liked this line: "First job, half off, I’ll call it the friends and family discount."

– Do you like where things are going so far?

– If Burn Notice has fallen out of favor with you, do you think it will it redeem itself this season?

– How do you think this entire season will end?

What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Okpamen who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Okpamen for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Okpamen is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Okpamen helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help? Contact him now via email: Doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com or Website: http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com or you can call me for more info on +1 785-219-4717 Becky Nolan.

I am Susan Scott from Canada, When I eventually found testimonies about this spell caster called Dr Ona , how he has helped so many people to get their lovers and broken homes back, i contacted him through his email address on dronaspelltemple@yahoo.com because my husband whom i really love with all my heart and also love me too, but suddenly change and turned his back on me and hated me with passion and i was absolutely desperate to get him back. Life without my husband was a real mess for me i wanted a dramatic change and I thought magic could be the solution. After discussing the resolution with Dr Ona, he gave me hope that he will restore my marriage back because he is already my husband. I felt confident that he will actually make my husband return home and he did! It’s fantastic what this great spell caster has done for me, his help is priceless! I don't know what I would have done without Dr Ona. He does his job so well and he is organized and highly functional, i believe he is the best spell caster i can count on when it comes to all kinds of spell, I was so felicitated that his spells worked, and if you need help, contact him now on his email dronaspelltemple@yahoo.com and i assure you that things will turn around for you. Thank you Dr Ona.

I had doubts about magic spells after purchasing many spells that never worked and actually decided to never buy a spell again. I have tried different casters.. Some of them never answered me after I paid and were obvious scammers, some really cast a spell but for some reason it didn't work. Then I saw a review on a forum with a person who was mentioning she had results with Dr Marvel. Despite the suspicions I had her site looked real so I gave spells a last try. It's probably the best decision I ever made in my life because it worked and my Husband came back with me. If you're looking for a good spell caster look no further,Dr Marvel surpass all other spell casters, believe me! Thank you Dr Marvel for your help. You can also contact Dr Marvel via email extremespellhome@hotmail.com or extremespellhome1@gmail.com. You can also contact him through his website http://extremespellhome.webs.com or call his telephone number +1 559 898 2962

Am sharing this article to the world to know that spell casting is real with the help of Doctor Ebakor. I have been married with my wife for the past 7 years without a child and it got to the point that my mum drove my wife away all because she was not able to bear a child. I did everything in my powers to get back my wife but nothing worked. On the 13th of February, a testimony was shared on a radio station by Icelia Jackson of how Doctor Ebakor helped in getting back her husband within 12 to 16 hours and i was really shocked about the testimony. I was very desperate to get back my wife so, i contacted the spell caster and he told me that everything will be fine again. He prepared a returning love spell that brought back my wife and a conceiving spell that made my wife pregnant. Viewers reading my post that needs help should simply contact Doctor Ebakor via his E-mail on : Doctorebakorspelltemple@hotmail.com OR call me with my number if you want to know more +1(647-489-4814)

I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Great Dr Okiriguo a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. My name is Gwen Marcus and i reside in USA. After 4 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Great Dr Okiriguo which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lovers, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer, hiv and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Stella, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Great Dr Okiriguo's email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Great Dr Okiriguo has said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Great Dr Okiriguo is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man.

I'd like to see the show come full circle. The whole burn notice thing is pretty much lost in what the show has become, and we all know these people would not be happy with uneventful lives. They should become free of the burn notice and get back to doing what they do best--helping people like the A-Team or the Leverage bunch. These people love the jazz...

I do not like the new season of Burn Notice that Michael is in, but the ones that Fee is in is a lot better. I was a die hard fan until this year. You can do better. I now tape the show to run thru the parts I don't like.

I don't know what to think of this season (so far), I hate that Fi and Mike are not together anymore. It just sucks! But, as this is the last one, I hope that all the blowing stuff up and "I need to know who burned me and make him pay" and everything else that made me (and the rest of the universe) love this show really pays it off. Are you going to (finally) make peace with yourself, Mike?

well, if mystery man is a returning character, then I think he'll come after Westen after he finds out, Mike killed (or actually had the police do it for him) his buddy.

I picture MMM being like those assets they are constantly recruiting in The Americans; the asset only answers to the person that recruited them, but the info will travel up the chain of command. Maybe that's why Burke had to get away for a few days, he knew MMM was out there and had to track him down to find out what he learned.

I have 3 people in my family named Mike/Michael and they are all upstanding fellas, so I think you need more data for your guys named Mike theory ;-)

There was something else about this episode I wanted to mention. The opening fight scene, while very entertaining, also had some of the biggest whiffs ever, when you have slo-mo shots you better block them right so the audience doesn't see in minute detail a fist miss a face only for that face to react violently in slow motion. ;-)

Yeah, it was pretty bad. Also Mike's flying up in the air and landing hard on his back. You don't get up after that, you are raced to the nearest hospital with a preacher at your side. TV fighting is fun but not very realistic and if you ever find yourself on TV, DON'TUSE A MACHINE GUN--they don't work. You can't hit anything with them. Dennis Haysbert knows what I mean...

This episode was great, plenty of action with the classic Burn Notice formula, it was like a throwback to the first season in the best way possible. I was also pleased they surpassed our quota of Michael Weston voiceovers on how 'the best way for a spy to do this is to..." The last few seasons were enjoyable, on the top of my regularly watched list, but with a season starting like this it seems regrettable that it's also the last season. Going out with a bang I suppose!

I seem to recall Burke saying something about having watched Mike for a while, in which case it makes sense for his less trusting second-in-command, who DOESN'T have past history with our favourite spy, to initiate an intelligence gathering operation through Mystery Man.
If he's had a month or two to set things up, it wouldn't be so suspiscious..

Disappointed Fi jumped into another man's arms so quickly, after leading us to believe she was forever-Michael in previous seasons. Happy that her eyebrows no longer threaten to jump off screen to attack us, likewise Michael's hair color isn't so fake-dark anymore.

A little surprised Maddie was tricked so easily to give up info on Michael, after she's been so wise and quick-witted these last few seasons. It's like Maddie was during the first 2 seasons.

Yes, the Maddie-bit was a bit disappointing, but then she's been trying to keep Mike out of trouble. This time, she thought Mike was "safe", i.e. working with The Government, and her focus was keeping baby Charlie safe - hence being fooled into talking with Fake Government Man, a.k.a. Mystery Man.
Also, after 9 months with no trouble, perhaps she let down her guard a bit.

For Fi, I think Carlos is a rebound relationship and she fell into his arms PRECISELY because Michael betrayed their forever-plans. She didn't want to wait for him, she didn't want to sit around pining for someone she feels has betrayed her, and so she went looking for nice, clean, uncomplicated fun.
And Carlos DOES seem to be that.

Oh please, this is so contrived. Fi has to know Michael has no choice in the matter--when has he ever? A while back, she and Michael had some dead time and were quite bored with it. I want to see them go back to their beginning and be able to help people without the contrived burn notice hanging over their heads. Leverage did it so much better...

Why do I still watch this show? I don't know, but it's Friday and I'm drinking and it was on the TiVo. Apparently I missed most of last season because WHAT they got busted by the CIA? Sucks to be them. And oh noes Michael and Fi, the world's youngest-looking-secretly-old-people couple broke up (again.)! Personally I think Fi upgraded with this new dude who is adorable with tiny orphans. 'Specially since Michael is taking the sexy alcoholic route. Is Charlie the new Cousin Oliver? Hmm.

Anyways. It felt like a really good reboot to a premise that has grown quite stale as of late! I hope they draw this all out a bit and keep Disgrace Michael in the Dominican Republic. And I see what you did there, Burn Notice, just sticking a yellow filter on the camera and calling it Latin America. You ain't all that crafty. I also enjoy the fact that Michael took a page out of The O.C.'s book on using cage fighting matches to exorcise the break up (or dead gf) sads. That made me laugh a bunch. I think I'll tune in next week!

Burn Notice never ceases to entertain me, and this episode was a very good example why. I was concerned for Michael and the gang the whole time. Loved it!! Whoever this new baddie is, this guy has skills, and in his mind, to me, there is a big purpose in what he's doing. Plus, Burke was a good addition as well. His history with Michael so far has me very intrigued, since we've never been introduced to the guy. By the way, two former Heroes alum in the same episode: AWESOME!!!

I loved, loved, loved, the street fight scene in the beginning. That's a side of Westen rarely seen, and like you said, it was filmed beautifully. I like the grizzled look he's wearing right now. Fits the warrior within him.

Jesse is basically back to his private security firm days. No secret there.

I think Michael and Fiona will get back together, but it's gonna take a while. I still remember the betrayal she felt back in the season 6 finale. It was heartbreaking.

Sam still knows how to crack me up. I definitely did a double-take with that masseuse Sandino line lol!!!!

Like you, I'm definitely sad this amazing show is ending, but glad it'll get a proper one; and like you said, this could go good or bad for any of them, given the way this show flows.

he was organizing a team and some stuff yet this mission is a deep cover solo ?

'hrg' implied he was off to this hell hole asap..

seems like the last few mins of last season is a bit of red herring..

oh look fi has a new bf no suprise there totally saw it coming..

now maddy... SERIOUSLY...why have the writers retconned her ?

mike since his return to her life was constantly drilling in to her about him being a spy and you don't tell anyone anything about me... suddenly thats out the window cos of some 'nates kid' really some family drama now of all times ?

oh yes sam is back in with his elsa nice going sammy

jesse returns to his old job...

fi continues her bounty hunting...

maddy gives up smoking ? wow..

I was planning on rewatching the last few episodes of last season because I forgot what had happened -- the past 3 seasons are all a blur -- but the one thing I did remember was not caring for it much, so I couldn't actually bring myself to do it. I figured, even if I don't remember, it wont really matter.

Anyway, this was a decent episode. Nothing spectacular, but it wasn't bad or anything. That said, USA Network dramas rarely have bad season premieres.

The best part for me was seeing Michael with a raggedy beard. I don't know if I've ever mentioned it on this site, but I've been saying since season one that Michael should have a beard. Okay, maybe not, but my point still stands... wait, I didn't have a point. Ugh.

As for redemption... I don't really think so. While they could certainly have a better season than the last two and that in itself would be somewhat redeeming, I'm not expecting anything as fun as the first two or three seasons.

The past 3 seasons are a blur because they weren't that good. This one is shaping up to be more of the same. Michael: "When dealing with contrived plotlines, you must be careful to make it all look and feel real--like Fiona pretending she doesn't love me anymore. I'm hot, so I have to be scraggly and then I look even hotter. What are you gonna do? Sam and Maddie are over there just shaking their heads now, but they're pros all the way, so bear with us and we'll make you happy in the end. We just have to kill a few more bad guys, then we live happily ever after on a beach somewhere. I promise...

That's what I'm seeing is Carlos is a partime love for Fi she is so tired of Michaels bs that she just walked away but for how long . You know down deep its Mike its always been Mike but she has to make him hurt for awhile before they walk off in the sunset so to speak! But believe me she will return to his arms or something will happen to Fi like die or something.

addie, the ever so cautious, overly experienced, constantly wary of everyone Maddie just blabbing on about Michael to some suit ... even if all that was on her mind was her grandchild ... that was very implausible to me. Burn Notice does have its occasional downs, but this particular bit was very bad writing choice, in my opinion.

Otherwise, not a bad comeback and a beginning of the end.

I won't minimize my love for Burn Notice. Every time old episodes magically appear on my DVR, I watch them immediately. I don't know what to think about the new season yet--several things bother me but I'm just glad it's back!!! I was a little dismayed at first with the opening fight scene--it looked like a direct rip off of Rambo III for a minute there. The old gang seems a bit fractured--I would've thought people willing to die for each other on the regular would have maintained a bit more contact. Jesse and Sam with the bomb was so funny, and brought back a glimpse of the old Burn Notice, when it was casual and fun. I also miss Maddie being a spiky haired old chick who would tell you, "Go to hell," with a cigarette hanging out of one side of her mouth.

It is hilarious though that within hours of hearing Michael's name, they've had a knife encounter, faced a claymore, and blown up a house. If you ever see Michael Westen outside, shut the door and lock it.

Not sure if its been mentioned (Too many comments to read them all) but I assumed Pablo called the mystery man to run some checks on his own. He was clearly distrustful of Michael and didn't want to take his bosses word for it so called someone he knew intending to get proof he could take to his boss, Burke. Standard fare for a lot of this style of show/movie (spy infiltrates gang, number 2 doesn't trust him, boss backs spy, number two gets offed, boss eventually finds out and looks stupid and usually dies in a teary exchange between the two) That was my take on it anyway. :)

I actually thought it was a really solid premier. After laughing all the way through the "previously on" recap and wondering why I decided to give season 7 a shot, I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I became invested in Michael's undercover op. The pacing was good, Michael's monologue was like listening to an old, C-4 touting friend, and I enjoyed having him separated (albeit temporarily) from the BN gang.

From not even knowing if I cared enough to watch this season, to wishing the next episode was on tomorrow, definitely goes to show how impressed I was with this storyline reset. No more Burn Notice bullshit (though they continue to show that now pretty much irrelevant "you're not going anywhere" intro), but more improvised explosive devices and badass beards.

I like this darker Michael Westen.

I was kind of impressed by the way it started, but it's just more of the same blurriness of the past 3 seasons. Hopefully they will get back where it all started before it's over. Scraggly Michael is still just Michael and Nate's baby is just another weak plot device. She's the kid's gramma for crissake--she gets the kid--end of story. And yeah, if I don't fast forward through that intro, I'm bummed the whole episode. But these people are still fun to watch. The guys on Leverage did it so much better, though...

This was better. Not that last season set the bar vey high but I like it thus far. That first talk about the "old Mike" is what I have been wanting to hear for the last 3 seasons. Mike was a badass, his name invoked fear in a lot of Eastern Europeans or so they said. I never really saw it because well basically his handler was right. He was on vacation in Miami. His friends and his family made him weak. And I have always wanted to see that other side of Mike. And hopefully, we are going to get to see some of that. At least in a couple of episodes, because they don't have long to wrap this up in a nice little bow. Which I am sure they are going to go for. I imagine the ideal wrap up would be Mike and Fi adopting little Charlie and living happily ever after. But before we get to that. I want to see this old Mike everyone keeps talking about. Not the Emo Mike from the beginning of last season because Fi was in jail. Or the happy go lucky Mike we have been seeing the past couple of seasons. I want Badass, kick ass and take names Michael Westen.

Now saying that the episode was all right. I like scruffy Mike, I like that he indirectly, eh kind of directly got Pablo killed. I like him fighting and like that he looks like he kind of smells. I hope they stay with this for a bit. Now the story seems interesting. It to me at least, though it might be premature at this point. That Randall Burk is actually a good guy and he saw what was going to happen to Mike long ago, got out and is fighting the good fight against people he deems are unpatriotic. But I am not sure about that yet. Pablo, was kind of a wash. Mostly because he had like 6 lines before they offed him. If my theory about Randall is correct, then Mike's handler is a bad guy, or he is a guy unknowingly working for bad guys. Either way, I like the new blood.

Back in "Miami" Sam and Jesse were fun. Fi is kind of weird. But her being pissed that Mike saved all of them from prison last season was kind of weird in itself. And hey. She tamed her eyebrows a little. So that is good. Her Eyebrows last season were really the big bad. Mostly, because they were big and really not that attractive.

Maddie, kind of exemplified why Mike's family makes him weak. But she has always been a character that I could have done without. Sure she is good for a laugh. But overly kind of moronic kind of like Mike's brother.

?s

I think just to kill the famous Mike Westen.

Fi's new boyfriend is a rebound. She loves Mike, but is pissed at him and it is going to be a thing. Because why not.

Yes. Dirty Mike is cool.

What has Jesse's occupation ever been?

Doubtful. She will get him until the end when Mike and Fi get back together and they adopt him.

No, that just kind of creeped me out. I have been to a lot of Masseuses and all of them stayed away from little mate.

Nah I chalked it up to TV.

That was a good line.

Thus far I do like where the things are going, Aside from Maddie's convenient brainfart/screwup. And Fi.

It can redeem itself. I want to see Mike go really dark for at least 4 episodes of the season. Real dark.

Sadly, it will end Happily Ever After.

Overall I did enjoy the episode. Im assuming it probably is going to be something like Petrelli and a group of ex-military are planning a nuclear terror attack on US because they think they have lost their way and Bennet wants to stop them. However Mike probably questions if Petrelli isn't actually in the right at some point. There might even be a Mike vs. Team ep. There will probably be a detox episode at some point. Burn Notice was always a fun "little" summer show about crazy adventures with duct tape, so as long as Mike and the gang run around doing crazy things Im happy.

However what really annoyed me was HOW DID RED FLAGS not automatically go up for Maddy? Especially, right after that whole "Hey Maddy someone has been asking about Mike and he's probably evil." scene. The breaking point was just a bit weak. That entire bit would have worked so much better if Maddy had the meeting before she knew someone was after Mike.

Side Note: Im assuming Jesse has a similar job as Lucy.
