Storyline

Michael focuses on arranging a meeting with Phillip Cowan, the paranoid agent who presumably burned him. When Mike's mother receives a covert threat, he asks Nate to look after her. Meanwhile Sam gets only Fiona's help for Gillian, his special forces friend's friend. She is blackmailed with her friend Melissa as unwilling accomplice in her Marine partner Kent's Turkish heroin smuggling. When it turns out the plot is more devious, Michael accepts to help counterattack. The meeting with Cowan takes a dramatic turn. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Michael Westen: [voice-over] There are two basic ways to blow up a car. Use the gasoline in the tank, or provide your own explosive. There're two techniques that use opposite ends of the car, and are disarmed differently. Some people prefer the gas tank, tends to look more like an accident, but is less reliable. Others prefer plastic explosive on the battery, wired to the ignition.

Worth while episode - with FF button
20 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty entertaining episode, but don't even try to watch it live. In the second hour USA shifts to 5 minute teaspoons of show, interrupted by equal spans of commercial break. Best to record this one and watch it later with remote in hand.

I like this episode because it breaks from formula a little bit. The pithy narratives continue, the family story is expanded a bit, and we still don't know why Michael was burned. But our heroes meet up with some interesting new challenges, and we get to see them function under some of the conditions that earned them their pedigrees in the first place.

I hope that the writers can keep it coming.
