Burn Notice "Bitter Pill" Episode Review

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

I've started to slowly get caught up on the show now that all the episodes have aired. I'm not really ready to say goodbye, but then again, I'm never really ready to say goodbye to a show that I've been watching for so long. But who else agrees when this has been the best season so far? I have no clue how it's gonna end. 

Strange men come to take Jesse, Fiona, Sam and Michael (all separately though) to this warehouse where they find out they meet James. James has a case for all of them. To protect a diplomat from getting killed. But it doesn't go down as well as they all hoped. The poor guy ends up getting poisoned and now it's a race against time to find the antidote.

The minute I saw the new guy, Ben, I didn't like him and that was later confirmed when he didn't want to save everybody towards the end and he pays brutally for that. He was supposed to help them all out, but he started to take extreme measures to do so.

James has started to follow Madeline around and they eventually meet up for the first time! Wow, the nerve of that guy, right? He said all he wants to do is protect Michael's family because Michael is way more important to him then she knows. What in the world is that supposed to mean? 

So, through many twists and turns, they finally find out where the antidote is. But the place that Jesse, Fiona and Ben end up at gets caught on fire. Jesse gets out fine, but this is when Ben is terribly bad. He just leaves Fiona there to die! I knew that when Michael saw him come out but not Fiona, that he would not stand for that and he didn't, so he went him himself and got her out. But because of the promise that Ben made to James about not leaving anybody behind, James just kills the guy right in front of them at the end! Michael didn't stop him. I'm really hoping he realizes how much he's changed with being with James. He's not the same Michael anymore. Michael would have talked him out of it now matter what was on the line.
