Six episodes, and two months in, but we finally got a really good episode of Burn Notice this season. From the hostage storyline that saw Sam and Michael on the other side of that for once, to the stealing of the sword, we had two enjoyable courses of action tonight on USA's best series.
Coby Bell, who plays Jesse has been upgraded to series star. I am not crazy about him, I think he looks like that guy from Criminal Minds, but I guess the producers thought the show needed to shake up.
I am sad that Kendra is gone and she was great in this episode. Her aggressive, clever style was the perfect complement to "the good guys" of this show.
Alan Dale, aka the guy who has appeared on every show in history, made his obligatory Burn Notice appearance as the man who was being conned. And in a Law and Order twist one of his own people tried to steal the sword. Not too bad Burn Notice, you even had me fooled. "I didn't see that one coming," as Fiona said.
Great episode tonight.
