Burn Notice - Nature of the Beast

Sam (Bruce Campbell) begins to grow concerned about his friend when Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) gets his first assignment from James (John Pyper-Ferguson), to take down a bloody drug smuggler and the head of the Dominican Narcotics Police (Peter Mensah) who Burke (Adrian Pasdar) was targeting before his death. The man has just signed a sweetheart of an extradition deal with MI6 to retire in relative luxury, something James wants Michael and Sam to ruin and deliver the drug dealer to him personally. Unable to coerce the man to choose a new lucrative career over MI6’s offer, Michael and Sam set about undermining the British team’s protection detail and forcing their mark to consider other options. And when that doesn’t work there’s always kidnapping.

Burn Notice - Psychological Warfare

Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) continues his journey down the rabbit hole searching for the head of Sonia‘s (Alona Tal) organization when he’s kidnapped and awakes in an intense series of interrogations, chemical cocktails, and psychological warfare run by an interrogator (John Pyper-Ferguson) who goes over and over Michael’s complete history searching for any hint of deception.

“Once you’ve made a choice in the field you can never take it back.”

Burn Notice - All or Nothing

Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) feels guilty about asking Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) to help Sonia (Alona Tal) take down the hacker syndicate known as The Collective that betrayed her and got Michael’s crazy new friend thrown in a Russian black site, but as Agent Strong (Jack Coleman) so eloquently puts it – he simply has no choice. To help sell Michael as a hacker and get him close enough to upload a virus into the group’s mainframe, Sam (Bruce Campbell) and Jesse (Coby Bell) have to do some damage with a less than cordial Barry (Paul Tei), who still is upset at spending four months in prison. To convince him to lend them a hand, Sam and Jesse agree to track down his missing girlfriend (who left him during his time under CIA lockdown).

Burn Notice - Exit Plan

After convincing Sonia (Alona Tal) that they are on her side, Michael (Jeffrey Donovan), Sam (Bruce Campbell), Jesse (Coby Bell), and their new crazy Russian spy friend have to find a way out of Cuba before they are tracked down by the head of counter-intelligence for the GRU (Marina Benedict). With limited options and Colonel Oksana knowing all of Sonia’s tendencies, Sam and Jesse jump into the lion’s den playing a pair of bounty hunters who offer to team-up with the Russian to find the pair while secretly trying to create a hole in the net large enough for Michael and Sonia to slip through.

Burn Notice - Brothers in Arms

To continue his mission, keep his friends and family out of prison, and learn more about the organization Burke (Adrian Pasdar) works for Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) calls in Sam (Bruce Campbell) and Jesse (Coby Bell) and heads to Cuba to break a prisoner (Alona Tal) out of an impregnable secret Russian prison. Rather than a frontal assault, Jesse comes up with a plan involving Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) and Maddie (Sharon Gless) grabbing a Russian low-level spy in the Russian consulate in Miami and sending Michael into a hornets nest of people who hate him with a flimsy story about the CIA preparing to raid their facility in hope of getting the group to move the prisoner allowing a far easier extraction.
