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

Trivia

Although press releases, on-line listings and cable/satellite companies billed this as "Loose Ends," the official web site, as of October 2007, billed this as "Dead Drop." See more »

Goofs

Michael backs up the charger so the car's windshield is parallel to the shooter and thus impossible for the shooter to hit. About a quarter of a second later his windshield takes a direct hit in the middle which causes glass micro-fragments to fly into the interior. This indicates the shot came from the front. The basis of this goof is inconsistent car positions. See more »

Quotes

Michael Westen: [voice-over] The truly paranoid don't go to meetings themselves. They use a cut out, someone unrelated to them, hired to show a pre-arranged sign and deliver a message. The sign is something innocuous, but hard to miss. My favorite is a tourist guide from Madison, Wisconsin. No one will look at it twice, but unless I'm in the Midwest, I know they are waiting for Michael Westen.

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.
