Burn Notice "Unchained" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Michael tries to figure out what's going on with Nate's murder case with the FBI, but he has to help the FBI catch a bad guy first.

Well, we learn that the case is closed on Nate's murder, so Michael has to go another way about getting it. Not really sure why the case was closed though. Weird. So, now he's starting his own case on Nate and goes to Agent Saxton. Pulls a gun on him to try and get some answers. Not a smart move there Michael.

Sam is going to go to his FBI friends in the agencies to try and get the file for Michael. That's when they learn that they can get the file as long as they help with a case first. But they end up getting the file first. Which is good.

Why do I think Pearce likes Jesse? She seems to always want to work with him. I don't know why, but I got that feeling in this episode.

Poor Michael, though. He's still having a tough time getting over Nate's death and he still blames himself. He doesn't want to get Fiona involved anymore in cases because he doesn't want to lose her, too. But she refuses and still helps him.

With the whole escape plan, were they supposed to crash? Or was that bad? Anyways, it worked and Sam and Woods were still ok.

Loved Michael and Fiona's characters that they play. Don't really know why, but I did.

Well, a flaw in their plan coming up after they steal a car. Cop check point. Michael kind of gets away, but they have to burn the stolen car. Not good.

Woods isn't too happy with the how the whole plan is going. But thank goodness Sam calms him down! :) But Sam probably spoke a little too soon. Michael had to lose the tracker. :( 

And now Jesse's plan is falling apart, too. But nice save on Pearce's part! 

Michael does end up meeting Quinn, but without Fiona and then Fiona gets a beating because they want to make sure Michael tells the truth on where the guy they want is at. He has to end up telling them truth, which sucks, but whatever. That's the only way he could have done it.

Nice how Michael got Fiona on the phone when he arrived at Quinn's house to kind of give her a location and to give her a sign on how to start getting out of the place.

Sam sure took his sweet time getting to the house. Didn't think he'd get there in time, but he did just in time! Thank goodness. And they got Quinn! 

But Pearce got in trouble for everything and now she is getting reassigned! Not good. I wonder how this is gonna turn out for the team?
