Storyline

To Michael's delight, he's given official charge of a CIA operation, albeit one nobody else wanted, with a young crack team, including hotshot agent Ryan Pewterbaugh, his cocky rival Nick Carnahan and shady Rebecca Lang, to stop slick spies recruiter Reed Perkins. Jesse goes undercover to be recruited in Miami as ex-spy security consultant. Meanwhile the team secretly acts on Vaughn's warning that Anson, who admitted having murdered father Weston, is rebuilding the mighty network that burnt Mike. However the task is so hard and Anson so well-prepared that the team's disagreements worsen until Fiona decides to give herself up to the FBI. Written by KGF Vissers

Sadly missing the mark this season
19 December 2011 | by judywalker2See all my reviews

This episode of Burn Notice misses the mark. Just like so many of the episodes this season. The writing is getting poor. Jesse needs to go as he is a totally non essential character. It might have been nice though if they had made him the mole and not the other person, mostly because we no nothing of her, nor do we care. It was the same thing with many of the guess stars who were added to this dull episode i.e. Dean Cain. Also his CIA contact lady hasn't been interesting since she stopped running Max's murder investigation. Also Fi and Michael's relationship is getting a little old and he's getting too emotional about it. I don't mind the fact that she's in danger from Anson but I really am not sure I like Michaels' reaction to it. Again the writers have failed him too. I hope that they end it quick so I can remember all of the good episodes and won't have to sit through other bad ones.
