BURN NOTICE “Entry Point” Review

BURN NOTICE-"ENTRY POINT"

In the BURN NOTICE episode “Entry Point,” Michael and Jesse begin interrogating contract killer Kendra. Then Michael hands it off to Sam and goes with Fiona to meet a client, Buddy, a tubby nerd forger whose life is being threatened by “Mr. Slippery,” an antiques thief. When they follow a trail to a warehouse location, it blows up in their face, literally. But Michael manages to get inside during a blaze and pull out evidence the thief is after a sword of Alexander the Great. They approach the wealthy owner as a security team, get rejected, go on to steal employee files and zero in on a company building guard. But it turns out, he was hired by the real thief, who ends up blowing up part of the office building in a diversion to steal the sword. Turns out it was the personal assistant, a woman, who was Ms. Slippery. Meanwhile, Jesse convinces Kendra could be bought, but when Sam looks into a chain of bank accounts, they’ve been drained and can’t be traced to a source, either. No longer stonewalling, she offers to help them track down the guy who hired her to take out several people involved in a botched bank job, it’s revealed.

This Burn Notice offering had some fun role play, especially for Gabrielle’s Anwar’s Fi as security person “Karen.” Michael has to take wanna-be tough guy but really a dork Buddy under his wing, almost literally, when they’re caught in the office building blast, which makes for a touch of comedy within the drama. And some Jesse-Kendra chemistry begins to heat up a bit, so we’ll have to keep an eye on that.

Overall, “Entry Point” was a solid offering from Burn Notice with a good balancing act between the story of the week and ongoing sub-plot arc. Kendra’s now a staple, at least for this season and adds a touch of volatile unpredictability to the cast mix.
