Burn Notice 5×04 — “No Good Deed”: I thought this was a very strong episode! Michael’s cover ID had me laughing, especially whenever the hacker muttered “perv” under her breath after one of his cheesy comments. It was good to see Barry again, and nice that the gang bailed him out of trouble for a change. Also, it was good that Jesse was involved for more than one scene. I think I remember saying last season that I didn’t care for him too much, but maybe he grew on me after all. Or maybe it’s just that if he’s going to be around and listed in the credits, then he should actually contribute more than a minute of screen time each week.
Oh, and speaking of a minute of screen time, what was with the lack of Maddie? I thought it was ridiculous to have her driving when they tried to follow Eve for the first time. Really? They’d rather have Maddie behind the wheel than Fiona? I’d rather have Maddie not appear at all than be brought in under those circumstances.
What a great twist at the end! I was expecting Grant Show to stick around for most (if not all) of the season, so I was shocked to see him laid out like that. And now Mike is framed for the murder, which will give the gang a whole new angle to pursue. The season just got more exciting!
