The "New" writing style continues with only two more episodes till finale.

A great episode which showcased all the Burn Notice character's
strengths. Absolutely no one whined or argued with Mike the whole
episode. Jesse just did his job, was grateful that it wasn't as hard as
what Michael had to go through and offered to help again wow, what a
change! But, the greatest change for good was Fiona. She stood her
ground to Michael without whining like a spoiled adolescent; but, still
got in a dig or two in a respectful, adult manner. Sam had less action
this episode but was full of wisdom and kept things on tract with the
(surprise, surprise) timid and weak-minded FBI agent. Michael was,
Michael is as Michael does!
I do have to take issue with a couple of inconsistencies the writers
seem to be misdirected on. We all saw Nate getting shot. He looked
stunned then staggered back to reveal a well demarcated hole in a metal
sign that definitely wasn't the size of a sniper rifle shell! Unless it
had a 50-cal head taped to its tip! Additionally, the writers had Fiona
tell Mike that Nate had volunteered for the job due to a deep seated
desire to help the world. "That's who we are," she claimed. Rubbish!
That's not what watching 87 prior episodes of Burn Notice have taught
us. We can believe that it IS what Fiona is about; but, if Nate
volunteered, it was because he saw his brother doing something that he
wanted to be involved in. His deep-seated "need," if he had one, was to
prove something, or himself, to Michael. That would be the thing the
writers could use as an excuse for Madeline to "blame" Michael about -
who, by the way, we haven't seen since the funeral.
