Burn Notice > Burn Notice Review: Pearcing Justice > Comments Page 2
I am glad I am not the only one that cried... I thought the scene at the end was awesome.
I thought this was one of the best Burn Notice episodes ever!
I have finally really started warming up to Jesse.
I hate seeing Michael act all un-Michael like in the last couple of episodes, like not being fast enough to kill Anson - please I hate that guy! And being dorky about learning his lines in this episode and not getting the note drop faster. Maybe they are just trying to demonstrate he is just off his game without Fi around.
No doubt Anson is behind whoever is trying to kill Fiona. I have no doubt he will be back before the end of the season. Anson will fall, he can't stay one step ahead forever.
You're entitled to your opinions, and I respect that. I just think the criticism would be better served directed at the season opener from two weeks ago: Unlike *that* by-the-numbers affair, this episode was actually decent and had a modicum of gravitas. Agree to disagree, I suppose.
That's quite a load of incorrect observations being used to backup some poorly directed critcism. Mike has sent his family into harms way dozens of times--Maddy in particular. Whether YOU believe it or not, it's perfectly consistent with the established tone of the show. The drop you alluded to was executed in a serviceable fashion for this type of show--this isn't exactly 'The Night Manager.' And why is it so hard to believe Michael has to "learn lines?" Whenever Mike takes on a cover identity, any intelligent viewer would assume he needs to "study up" beforehand--in this case, they decided to show it instead of gloss over it. His mention of Fiona was simply a heavy-handed--but not "out of left field"--reference to their separation.
And if Donovan's performance was "acting 101," so be it. The point is he pulled it off extremely well. There are dozens of actors (incredulously) starring on more high profile shows who can't convey the simplest emotions.

I've seen a few people mention that the song near the end was "The Reach" by Miranda Lee Richards, which should be released on or before 7/7/2012
That final scene with Michael and Fi was totally heartbreaking. I hope she can get out of there pretty soon. I don't know how much more of their pain I can watch.
It was a great episode.
Mike's reaction in the scene with Fi is pretty much Acting 101- don't him him too much credit.
Can't buy Mike's sending his family into harm's way. Especially Nate. We know the bad guy's son is a psychotic, why chance it? And the dead drop is badly executed (the note is in front of him). Surely that would trigger a suspicious response from a trained operative. And Mike having trouble learning his lines? Please. That whole "Fiona used to help me" comes out of nowhere.
Pearce, Michael, and Jessie make a good team. The guard seemed to be fooled too easily but I guess he doesn't need to be that quick. I'd never involve Nate in an op. Donovan's emotion at the end was good.
Checked out of the episode at 14 minutes in favor of Men's Gymnastics on NBC Sports. I'm sooooo tired of the Michael/Fiona drama. Love Maddie, Sam and Jesse. Ready for them to take over the show and open a detective agency. I think the show took a wrong turn when they got away from "somebody needs your help, Michael", which they still have in the shows opening credits.
I'm wondering the same thing.. I tried to Shazam the song but I only got an add for Burn Notice (sigh). I will keep looking to see if I can find the song.
The only thing about this episode that I found to make little sense was Michael almost giving himself away at the end when the note was smuggled to him. He's supposed to be a world-class spy, but can't handle a surprise dead drop when he's just visited his might-as-well-also-be-a-spy girlfriend, without missing a beat? Surprised.
I liked this episode and thought the Michael and Fiona scene was wonderfully acted.. I also liked Ayn, hope she is around for more episodes. re: Nicole, they may have moved her, Fiona wouldn't sign the papers to be moved, but maybe Nicole was and that explains her absence in the episode..
Makes me REALLY angry that we aren't seeing this year of this show yet in Canada.
***MY COMMENT CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS***
I was thinking, since Nicole did attack Fi, maybe she was put in solitary or something as punishment, but will be coming back. I really liked the new character Ayn, fully realizing we may not see her again, and if we do it would only be for one maybe two eps, but I did like her (who else recognized the actress from Coming to America?) I finally started seeing the chemisty between Pearce and Jesse, and I would like to see that come together but I'm wondering - there has been a rumor (POSSIBLE SPOILER) that someone 'close' to Michael will be getting killed off sometime in July (maybe August). Most people are guessing Nate, but it could be Pearce. Anyone not in the opening credits is in danger. I cried a little too when Mike and Fi finally got to see each other - I was worried they were going to try to prolong it another ep and that really would have pissed me off. I can't wait for these two to reunite with Fi out of jail.
It broke my heart also when Michael and Fiona met at prison. I agree it was a great performance by Jeffrey, did not need to say a word. Great acting by both.
I thought it was a little too obvious that we did not see Nicole as well. You can't disappear in prison. Maybe since Michael is going to look for the person trying to kill Fi, then she will be back, since whoever is behind this is threatening Nicole's sister. Not a good choice by the writers if they are just going to drop it.
I do like Jesse and Pearce together, and it looks like thats where it might be heading. I think Pearce is all in now, I don't see any residual feelings from before. I do like this character and hope she stays. I too was worried about Nate. I guess we have to wait 2 weeks for the next episode, I hate that.
i can't handle this any more! i started crying during Michael and Fi's meeting. this heart breaking! i mean i felt for Pearce and all but Mike and Fi stole it away. and i loved when he started talking with an Irish accent and she followed suit. i don't know how much longer i can take Fi in prison!
