Burn Notice "Psychological Warfare" Episode Review

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

Another one that's been a while since I've seen it, but this one I remember pretty well because it was very intense and a very different episode then what we are used to watching.

So, Michael finally gets to meet Sonja's mysterious boss. Or so we think. We don't actually know that until the end of the episode. But let me tell you, I did not like him from the very beginning! Torturing Michael all just to get to know him better? Giving him drugs so that he could mix things up in his head and accidentally tell the guy the truth? 

We think the meeting is set up a day from when the show first started, but that wasn't Sonja's or the guys plan to begin with. Sonja basically kidnaps Michael in order to get him there without him knowing where they even went. 

Oh, but before all this, Michael decided to tell Fiona about what happened between him and Sonja. I have no clue why, seeing as they aren't together and she has a boyfriend, but you could totally tell in the scene that she still has feelings for Michael. Why else would she act so upset when he told her?

But man, we learn all about Michael's past! Seeing his old boss, Larry, who was actually the one who trained him. We learn why Michael became what he did. It was because of Larry. Michael wasn't thrilled how Larry handled things at all at one point and Michael was afraid he was becoming like Larry. Poor guy! Glad he didn't become like Larry, though! 

Another surprising guest we see in his flashbacks, is his dad! I knew before that his dad was not a really nice guy, but man, to actually see it, no wonder Michael wanted to leave the house and become a spy. 

His friends have no clue where Michael is and they are very worried. So, they go on a hunt to try and find out what happened. Sam and Fiona end up following Sonja around and she is seen throwing stuff out of Michael's apartment? That part, I didn't understand at all. Why do that? But they eventually follow her to the island that Michael is on and try to get him out. What was weird and what made me question Sonja's trust was that she started to help Michael escape. I kind of had a feeling it was all just one big plan and I was right. Though his friends that were watching him go back to the place had no clue what was going on. But because of this, we learn what the mysterious guys' name is! It's James! Then suddenly, Michael is at home sleeping in his Mom's house. We aren't quite sure how Michael got out. Probably the same way how he get in. But Sam goes to the place to look for clues and it's been destroyed! Like that fast! Well, we don't know how many days passed, but I think it was a pretty short time. Why would they destroy something like that?
