Judging from the comments on last week's Burn Notice episode preview, everybody was ecstatic to see Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) and the USA Network dramedy return on air.  Tonight on Burn Notice, Detective Paxson (Moon Bloodgood), who was introduced on the last episode, will be the least of Michael's worries since a dear old "friend" is set to make a return. Meanwhile, it was reported previously that we have not seen the last of Brennan (Jay Karnes), which, of course, spells danger of Michael, Nate Westen (Seth Peterson), Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), and Sam (Bruce Campbell), as they need to help with an elaborate heist. Sam may need to lay off the mojitos this week in order to pull off this assignment.

Last episode of Burn Notice - which drew some 5.2 million viewers - saw Michael realizing that his decision to call off management at the end of last season was not really smart, as he became instantly visible to just about anyone who may have a grudge against him.  Detective Paxson was able to track down explosives he'd been hiding in a storage facility.  Elsewhere, Michael and the rest of the gang rescued a kidnapped child by way of reverse interrogation. All in all, while he was no longer under the thumb of anyone, he's also not under their protection.

Burn Notice is available on Amazon Prime.

Critics noted that the appearance of Paxson - despite being labeled as "Michael's worst nightmare" - didn't prove to be as significant as hoped, since she didn't exactly pester Michael in an astronomical scale.  It is predicted, however, that the willowy, soft-spoken detective just might be a problem in the future.  As far as critical reception goes, the pairing of Burn Notice and Royal Pains is proving to be a real hit for the USA Network.

Catch Burn Notice tonight 9pm on the USA Network.
