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, well… 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.
