Burn Notice "New Deal" (Season Premiere) Episode Review

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

Yay, I'm back! I actually missed blogging for a little bit there. But now I'll be back because shows are starting back up again.

First off was Burn Notice. Which was an amazing premiere, if you ask me! Was a little confused, but then again, I normally am. But not confused in a bad way. Confused in a good way where I want to figure out what's going on. 

We finally know what the horrible thing Michael did to let his friends and mom go at the end of the last season. He agreed to go deep undercover for Andrew. I can't remember, but wasn't he bad at some point? I remember not liking him, but it's been so long since I've seen the previous seasons that I can't remember all the villains that Michael has had to deal with.

Speaking of villains, there's a new one in town but nobody can figure out who he is or what he wants with Michael. First, the guy sees Sam and threatens him (sort of) and says that he needs to know stuff about Michael. But Sam really has no clue where Michael is at. Sam is freaked out, so he goes to Jesse (where is Jesse working now?) and that's where he learns that the mysterious guy also visited Jesse! Right after the mysterious guy left, Jesse's work computers got hacked into. But then, what's worse is that the mysterious guy poses as a custody worker and gets Madeline talking because she wants to keep Charlie (Nate's son)! Fiona is too late in getting to her to tell her to not talk and Madeline told the guy everything.

So, now on top of Michael having to get close to this guy named Randall who he has previously known (actor is also on the Lying Game - for those who wanted to know), now finds out that the trusted guy that is working for Randall is a double agent or bad guy, he's not an agent, just not sure what to call him! But Michael being nice to Randall, doesn't tell him that the guy he trusted ended up being bad (and killed because Michael ran the check point, just to get the guy killed). But before all that, Michael ended up having to blow up some random building, but has no clue why or what was in there. 

Oh, Andrew and Michael have to go back to Miami to get the bad guy. I'm not sure what bad guy they are talking about. Randall or the mysterious guy. I'm thinking the mysterious guy. But Andrew won't let Michael see his friends or family while he's there. I doubt that'll happen. But little does Michael know, that Fiona has a new boyfriend! :( Not liking the guy at all. Though we just saw him for 2 seconds. 

So sad to be watching the final season. I'm sure other fans are sad to see this show ending. But if the whole season is like this, they are off to a great start!

My questions after watching the premiere are:

1. What's the mysterious guy want from Michael and how does he fit into all of this? Is he good or bad (I'm thinking bad)?
