Fiona pays her dues
27 August 2012
You didn't really think that Fiona's prison exit strategy of becoming a
CIA asset wasn't going to come back and bite her in the butt did you?
And with the two worse screw-ups the CIA has to offer no less! After
the Fall of Sam Axe (and pretty much every other episode they've been
in) I had forgotten just how much I disliked the characters. They must
tap some subconscious resonant chord with me because I can only watch
their buffoonery for so long before I have to hit "pause" on the TIVO
and take a break.
Fortunately for Fiona, she had Michael who knew just how dangerous the
idiots were and could see to it that she was protected; unfortunately
for us, we had no such protection. Sure the episode needed a villain
but those two characters are some of the worse that the writers have
given us. However, it is great to have such a greater depth in Fiona
and Sam. She really showed us her stuff in this one. And, there are
some great "one-liner quotes" and "voice-overs" if you were paying
attention (if not Google Burn Notice Secrets).
As you watch it, however, If you get to thinking that you can already
figure out the ending and can skip forward - believe me. You can't...
