Tonight on Burn Notice
, Michael and Sam try and rescue an asthmatic boy from a dangerous, extremist militia. The militia is all against the government, yet views themselves as soldiers of war (even though they never served in a war). That's what you call cray-cray. Michael gets new house guests when he must protect his imposter, Jacob, and his dog, Mr. Pickles. Top Five Moments:
Extremist Nutbag In Charge. I commented in another recap that I wanted a different kind of villain for an episode -- this counts. Zachariah, the E.N.I.C who started his own militia. The father is a jaded extremist and loving father. (If you broke your leg, wouldn't you be screaming in pain? Logic, producers! Learn it, love it, live it.) I like that this is an extremist episode.
4. Mr. Pickles:
That dog was too adorable. Also, Jacob is probably as smart as that dog; of course he isn't smart, he found that job online. (Didn't I find this job online...?)
3. Fi's Mission Impossible Stunt:
I like that Fi got to do some stunts this episode. She's sort of been doing surveillance and grunt work of late in Burn Notice
, so she needed to be adrenaline Fi. Coolest thing? She attaches herself under a car to sneak in, but these crazy militia folks found out and then she has to drop (painfully) on the ground. Oh, and she got stuck in the crossfire for a little while.
2. Seige Warfare:
Don't attack, leer them out. I like that this show gives me some insight into warfare. I feel like I am learning stuff that will be important for when I go to Miami -- because naturally, I will piss off drug dealers, gangs, trafficking rings, militia, whatever.
1. Boom-Boom Boat:
This bad guy who took out Max and hired Jacob to do his dirty work is quite clever. The explosives are rigged to explode for when the boat reaches a certain depth; he wanted Jacob to meet him in the Bahamas. He was even nice enough to leave a map!
Next week on Burn Notice
, Fiona's ex-boyfriend -- Gavin Rossdale -- is the only one who can help for a certain case. Jealousy issues aside, this guy seems like someone you don't want piss off; probably because if Fiona dated him, how normal could he be?
