@DANNY: I think Anson was talking about the past in reference to Fiona.
I'm surprised nothing was mentioned about the picture that fell out of the book at the beginning of the ep. I think the note on the back said, "In the beginning". Wonder what that means. Finch said something ominous too, about finding what you're looking for. I get the feeling that Reese and Finch have crossed paths somewhere in the past and only Finch is aware of it. It's just another point upon which to ponder in anticipation for the upcoming second half of the season.
I get the feeling Sam and Mike are going to have a minor falling out next season. If you ask me, Sam let Fiona "escape" and turn herself in. Once Mike finds out, he's going to be a little bit peeved. Sam just might do something reckless to get Fi out of jail if he feels guilty enough. However, that's all speculation.
Unlike some folks, I'm looking forward to next season with as much excitement as ever. I've not seen a decline in the writing or acting. IMO this series has continued to produce one great ep. after another. It's just that once you raise the bar to a certain height it becomes more and more difficult to surpass previous efforts.
Thanks for another great season of witty and insightful Burn Notice reviews!
@Raquel: Good point. Once it was clear she was going to Hawaii, I had a feeling it would be for another H50 episode. I had forgotten she knew about Shellbourne. I hope you're right.
Criminal Minds jumped into NCIS world for a second in the scene where Hotch overhears Garcia talking about his possible romantic interest. DiNozzo would understand.
@ROSE: I think the quote was "SOMETIMES letting go..." Can't remember it verbatim.
Praise for Charles S. Dutton!!!
I have to criticize the ep. for being too short. The investigation was way too quick. I guess there's only so much you can fit into an hour. I would have liked to have seen this as a two-parter.
More Larry! I wanna see Larry Miller again, but utilized better. He has much more to offer than we saw in this ep. I really enjoyed the Agent Lee/Palmer side story from a couple years past and was glad to see Palmer get some more attention this ep. Tough to pull off the sweater-vest. As Demetri Martin once said, "Life vests save you from drowning, bullet-proof vests save you from being shot, and sweater-vests save you from pretty girls". Breena certainly blows up that quote.
I agree, difficult to follow (not mentally, just logically). I'm easy to entertain when watching a TV show so I did get a kick outta some of the funny parts despite their disjointed nature.
Good group. Tough choice. Guess it comes down to who I most enjoyed watching. Peter Dinklage, without a doubt. Not surprisingly, he is also my favorite character in the books. A close second goes to Maise Williams. Arya is my second fav. character in the books (go figure) and Williams' portrayal brings her to life superbly. Should get lots of screen time in the second season if the second book in the series is as closely followed as the first.
Many laugh-out-loud moments in this ep. The flashback pics and video along with anything Giovani said were particularly noteworthy.
I get the feeling that Jane's mom has feelings for Korsak. I had similar thoughts after an ep. from last season (or the one before that) but it didn't seem to develop. That would be an interesting storyline
Carissa is correct about Clay's future after his thyroid cancer diagnosis. I've had it and if you want to pick a type of cancer to contract (what a silly thing to say) then thyroid is your best bet. Although if Clay is as obstinate as I am about going to the doctor for his Synthroid prescription renewals, his mood swings could be quite epic. I hope Willie Ray keeps a head-bopper close at hand. LOL!
Willie Ray and Clay are two of my favorite TV characters. I'm gonna miss them the most when this series ends. Not only did Fritzy bop Clay, he bopped him twice! The look on Clay's face was classic.
Politically incorrect: The elder Johnson's gave Det. Sanchez maracas for Christmas. Really? Maracas? Pardon the pun, but I honestly did not notice Ms. Shipley's God-gifted maracas referenced in the review.
It was nice to see Flynn show some sensitivity this episode. That's not something we've come to expect from him.
