Michael's landlord, Oleg, is having a problem with one of his waitresses.

Michael is (mostly) happy to look into it, as he also continues his investigation into who stuck him with his burn notice. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Although created on their own by Craig S. O'Neill and Jason Tracey, Sam's go-to cover name of "Chuck Finley" is also that of a coworker of Bruce Campbell's father. See more »


Michael subdues a bad guy and initially points his gun at his head. Michael then points his gun at the bad guy's knee to make him talk. The camera switches to a new angle and now Michael's gun is once again pointed at the bad guy's head. See more »


Michael Westen: [voice-over] When you go on the run, the first thing you do is lay down tracks in the opposite direction, but that only works if the bad guys find the trail and believe it's for real. Which means selling it. You need to put on a little show, make them feel clever. When you make somebody work to get a piece of information they'll believe it that much more because it's hard to get.

Michael attends an international conference at a hotel in order to get the name of the person that has burned him. Later he takes a job his landlord, Oleg, offers him in exchange for 4 months free rent. This job involves a girl who's witnessed a crime who's now afraid to leave her house thus not being able to work for Oleg. Meanwhile, Fi pressures Mike into getting his deceased dad's car (and a key to his apartment), which is another whole bag of trouble.A pretty decent episode and ,in my mind at least, a marked improvement on the first two episodes of the series. only downside being not much of Bruce Campbell this time out.

My Grade: B+
