In this episode of Burn Notice, called “Official Business,” Michael gets one step closer to finding the person who killed his brother and Fi gets to play CIA agent.
Turns out when the CIA got Fi out of prison, there was some fine print in her contract that says she belongs to them. When they come to collect, it’s of course at the worst time as Michael is all set to follow the lead they got on the gun that could lead to Nate’s killer. Understandably not willing to leave Fi’s safety up to “Mutt and Jeff,” (as I began to think of the CIA agents assigned to Fi’s case) Michael decides to go on the case as well, leaving the lead to Sam and Jesse. Things get pretty hairy when it turns out that the innocent girlfriend of the man they thought was selling ballistics tech is actually the one doing the selling, but Fi and Michael pull it off like they always do. Gotta say that a part of me was sad when they told the CIA to lose her contract though. I could get used to Spy Fi.
Meanwhile, Jesse and Sam use their own skills to track down the lead and narrow down the search to one person. Trouble is, they only have initials: TG. Leave it to Michael to jump in and take it to the next level. Not only does he get a name, Tyler Gray, he also gets close enough to the man to get their whistleblower shot. The only question I have now is: Did Tyler shoot (because come on, who else could it have been?) because he discovered Michael sniffing around or was he already after Michael in the first place? I’ve been thinking all along that Nate’s death was a complete accident and the one who did it was just one of Anson’s many enemies. But what if Nate was killed to get to Michael?
Hopefully we’ll find out a lot more in next week’s summer finale, but I’m just as certain that for every question we get answered, more will be asked. The season’s not even over yet and I’m already missing this show.
My favorite bits..
“I hate this so much already.”
That suit on Michael. Just sayin.’
Come on, Sam. Running into a guy with a nametag that says “Hi my name is: The Guy Who Killed Nate” might be possible.
“It’s not Paris, but there will be lots of guns.” – Oh Michael, you know the way straight to a girl’s heart.
“Yeah, until she’s no longer mission critical. Then you’ll run like scared little girls!”
Michael saying that dealing with a nervous asset was kind of like babysitting with a gun to your head. Yeah, that sounds fun.
“She’s clean. I checked every inch of her.” – Um, am I the only one who found that a tad creepy?
“Okay, I’m gonna ‘action time’ it now.” – Gotta love a snarky Michael.
“If you worked freelance, you could afford better suits.” – LOL! And a snarky Fi is fun, too.
Finding it amazing that Fi ends up in more trouble when she works with the CIA than she does when she’s working with Michael and his little ragtag team.
Nicely done, Fi! Put the idea of a threesome in a guy’s head and he forgives all. LOL.
Sam and Jesse making it in to finally see those personnel files.
“Yeah great, now we’re two whole letters closer to finding the man who killed Nate.”
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa! I so did not see *that* coming.
“As usual, the best man for the job…is a woman.” Okay I don’t like this biatch, but she does kinda have a point there.
OMG, Sam is so right. Those two agents really are whiny little girls.
“It’s your call, Vincent. You die in prison or she does.”
“We could’ve done with fewer explosions but, bravo.” – Um, have you two morons MET Michael and Fi?
Michael and Fi getting the morons to agree to burn up Fi’s little “contract.”
Nice! Michael just got the name of the man who killed Nate. Tyler Gray, look out.
Whoa! This Tyler Gray guy does not mess around does he?
