Burn Notice Season 6 Review “Best Laid Plans” – What Else Can Go Wrong?

Burn Notice Season 6 Episode 14 Best Laid Plans

In this episode of Burn Notice, called “Best Laid Plans,” Michael and the rest of his weary team are still drying their darndest to get out of Miami while Maddie is still doing her darndest to help.

Considering what a terrible time of it Michael and his team have had recently, I should’ve known that it would only be a matter of time before Maddie was in so much trouble that she’d need to run with them, too. That poor woman has been knocking herself out helping her son and his friends and gotten deeper and deeper into her own predicament.

Well, in this episode it finally happened. Michael needed Maddie to do one final thing for them: get Barry to transfer some funds to get Riley off their trail. Being the almost-spy that she is, Maddie managed to lose her tail, get to Barry AND get him to transfer the funds. Only trouble is, Riley found her out, caught Barry and now has enough evidence to send her to jail. Welcome to life on the run, Maddie Westen.

I think Michael must be wondering at this point just how his life got this screwed up. He went from simply being a burned spy hiding all alone in Miami, to having his brother killed, being a wanted man by the CIA and pretty much single-handedly ruining the lives of everyone he cares about. I swear, if one more bad thing happens to this guy, I’m not sure what he’s going to do.

So now they’re all on the run and how exactly that will go down, I have no clue. These last few episodes have been jam-packed with tension, drama and action, and yet somehow we still have two more episodes to go before the season finale. I don’t know how much more my heart can take, and yet somehow I’m still counting the days until the next episode so I can find out what happens.

My favorite bits..

Michael’s outfit when he met his mother in the park.

“I know physical contact isn’t part of our cover, but you’re the only family I have left. If they catch us, they catch us.”

Riley actually cuffing Maddie. WTH?

“At your age, you’ll die in prison.”
“Beats ending up in a nursing home.”

Riley catching the “going to go” from Maddie. Damn it!

“I’m helping you by calling you a douche bag! Yes I am! Yes I am!”

Schmidt suggesting that they could try and throw the world’s biggest bake sale to get the money they need.

“They’ve gonna walk into a suicide situation just because you ask them to?”
“Yeah, that’s pretty much how we roll.”

“I’m guessing that a sealed door, plus three donut-eating cops, equals a….go home situation?”

“Do I look like a guy who squirrels?”
“Do you really want us to answer that?”

“Shouldn’t you have a parrot on your shoulder?”

That moron Schmidt dropping a bottle of booze and getting the attention of the cops.

Fi, Jesse and Schmidt breaking out of the place in a forklift. Well, that’s a new one.

“Drive, bald man, drive!”

“Fi, we have a plan.”
“Don’t take this personally, but our plans haven’t been going so well recently.”

Maddie informing Barry that the good news was that he did not have a fungus.

“If I die today, my ghost will haunt your children’s children.”

Dr. Charles Finley = Awesome.

“Sounds like you’ve got a lot of important pissed-off people on your hands. Why are you calling me?”

Maddie hanging up on Riley = YES!

Michael and Jesse’s fake fight. Loved the “Rodger Dodger” comment.

“Mind if we trade cots?”
“Go to sleep, Schmidt.”

“Sam, you brilliant son of a bitch.”
(Michael and Jesse stare)
“I’ll never admit that I said that.”

Jesse snidely remarking that he would take care of himself, too, after Michael told Fi to take care of herself.

Michael telling Maddie that she had to come with him, because she was the only family he had left. Aw!

“Well I’m not going anywhere cold. I mean it.”
“Deal.”
