    Burn Notice "Forget Me Not" Review: Time to Be Brave, Little Angel

    This week’s adventure was mainly concerned with reuniting Westen and his crew, as well as sticking our noses right in the sour roses of Michael and Fi’s spoiled relationship, all while uncovering the true identity of last week’s dastardly Mystery Man.

  • Episode Summary


    Michael comes back to Miami to protect his cover. Sam, Jesse and Fiona are also trying to hunt Mystery Man down themselves. Michael spies on his friends from a safe distance and he remembers his first meet with Fiona.

    • So good it literally gave me chills

      Really there are not enough words to adequately articulate how perfect the ending of this episode is.

      It starts like any other trusty Burn Notice episode but then the flashbacks to Michael and Fi's first meeting Dublin just makes it so special and touching. The fan girl in me was just screaming and jumping up and down in joy.

      Then at the climax of the episode one simple phrase literally gave me chills all over my body... To which then I found myself screaming at the screen 30 seconds later in sheer fan girl devastation.

      I have watched ALOT of TV and never has a single episode of TV cause me to feel so many overwhelming & conflicting emotions in the space of a few minutes.

      Bloody fantastic.

    • love to give my opinion...

      Is there a way to watch episodes on this??
    • Forget Me Not

      It was the 100th episode, so I had high hopes. Not the best episode in the Burn Notice series, but not the worst. When Michael first sees Fiona, the music by Dougie MacLean (the Gael), is Scottish, not Irish, so not sure why it featured. Gabrielle of course is English, but she is meant to be playing an Irish native, isn't she?. I really do wish the Americans would stop getting us Celts mixed up - we really are very different! There are lots of Irish ditties that would have worked much better in place of the Gael, so that spoiled it a bit for me, and as it was in the opening scenes it put a damper on the rest of the episode.

      Bit too smalzy (if that's even a word) in parts and the Irish accents were diabolically poor (why bother if you can't do a decent one). However, still watching...moreless
    • Forget Me Not

      I really enjoyed Burn Notice's celebratory episode here. The show did flashbacks, but not in a snobby, phony or overly sentimental way, just to set the tone for the show, and it worked here.

      Very enjoyable, and truly makes us disappointed the end of the show is near.
    • A Pivotal Episode (Spoilers inside)

      Michael has to interfere with the investigation of his friends once Fiona was captured by Mystery Man. He realizes that his failed relationship with her is now over. It is sad because everyone was hoping that they would manage to stay together.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Trivia: The name of the actor who played the bartender at the pub in the flashback sequences set in Ireland is Michael McBride, which is the name Michael Westen used when he met Fiona while working undercover in Ireland.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Michael: (voiceover) In a hostage situation, tactical data is usually the most important. Your focus is on details like the building's entry points and blind spots, your target's potential escape routes, and your team's assault capabilities. But sometimes even more important than your knowledge of the situation is what you know about the person you are trying to save.

      • Michael: (voiceover) An operative is trained to maintain cover under all circumstances. When the mission requires keeping your identity a secret, you're supposed to follow orders and stay out of sight. That's easy when you're spying on enemies. But it's a very different thing when you're spying on friends. When maintaining cover means allowing people you care about to walk right into a death trap, you have a choice to make. Risk the operation or risk your friends' lives.

      • Michael: (voiceover) When someone is put in danger as the result of an operation going bad, there are a number of questions that have to be answered. What went wrong? Is there anything you could have done differently? And of course the one question no one wants to ask, "Is it your fault?"

      • Michael: (voiceover) Finding someone who's been abducted is a race against the clock. Each minute that passes increases the area you have to search. If you know the vehicle the kidnapper is driving, your chances of catching them rise significantly, which is why a smart kidnapper's first move is to burn his vehicle.

      • Michael: (voiceover) In the field, snipers can spend hours, sometimes even days, waiting to take just one shot. But no matter how diligently you work to stay focused on the task, at some point your mind is going to wander.

      • Dixon: Fi. Where have you been? You never write, you never call.
        Fiona: And I never will.

      • Michael: (voiceover) The average hit rate for a trained marksman firing at a target from 50 feet under ideal conditions is over 99%. Of course that assumes you can see your target. If you're under fire and shooting blind, that hit rate drops to about zero.

      • Michael: (voiceover) When running surveillance you're trained to view your targets not as people, but as a list of details in an activity log. When they come home, when they leave, how many calls they make. You have to discipline yourself not to get emotionally involved in the life of the subject. But sometimes the subject makes that impossible. The hardest part about doing surveillance on someone you know is staying objective. Work can quickly become very personal when everything about the person you're watching, every look, every gesture, reminds you of the past.

      • Madeline: Michael, I just wanted to know if you were alive! Is that too much to ask?
        Michael: (yelling) Yes, it's too much to ask! You can't call! You can't write! You just have to wait for me to come back!
        Madeline: And if you don't come back?

      • Michael: (voiceover) There's a fine line between healthy caution and paranoia. When you're under stress your awareness is heightened, making it easier to spot potential dangers. Unfortunately, stress can also make it hard to tell when a danger is real, and when it's just a figment of your imagination.
