Burn Notice 4×03 — “Made Man”: This was another episode that was just so-so for me. I have to admit that I liked Jesse a bit better this week, but this time around the Odd Job didn’t come off so well. There were a few things that struck me as completely unbelievable, beginning with the mob boss just totally accepting Chuck Finley as a partner. Like the boss said, he was a made man, so he should have been untouchable. Plus, as a boss, a more likely reaction would have been to take out Chuck the first chance he got. Can you imagine Tony Soprano being held hostage like that and then working with his captor and would-be killer so good-naturedly? Yeah, didn’t think so. And to make things worse, I ended up feeling bad for the mobster at the end when Chuck just left him out there to die. He survived somehow, but that was akin to delivering the guy to an execution. Brutal.
I think we need to see more of Fiona, though she better not fall for Jesse at any point during this season. That would just be too tiresome to deal with. I’d also like to see if Maddie continues to meddle in the Mike/Jesse mess, and wonder if she’ll end up getting Mike in trouble in that regard. I thought she’d been making strides in terms of realizing what it is that Michael really does, but then she acted so shocked after finding out about the Jesse burn. Why? She should definitely know better by now!
