Michael's mother tricks him into helping his cheeky kid brother Nate Westen, a compulsive gambler. Nate accepted Mike's former employer Bill Reese's money in advance to track down his missing daughter Jenna. She was last seen with 'model recruiter' Brandon Diggs, who introduced her to the glamorous Wilhelm brothers' dodgy escort service. Meanwhile Czech hit-man Jan Haseck has turned up, determined to settle an old account with Michael the 'permanent' way. However Jan may have valuable info about his 'burn'. Written by KGF Vissers

Michael Westen: [v.o] At other times, it's about making sure the body count is unacceptably high.

enter Nate (Mike's brother)
18 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On this episode, Michael deals with an assassin and his estranged brother, Nate (the latter at the insistence of his mother) whom wants him to help his friend who's daughter (and aspiring model) unknowingly got mixed up with an underground prostitution racket.

This episode was merely all right, but those of you who are expecting it to pick up from what Mike found in the last few minutes of the previous episode are going to be sadly disappointed. But if you take it on it's own merits, it's still watchable. I just wish these episodes were a tad less self-contained.

My Grade: C
