"Wanted Man" Season 1, Episode 8

Things are a little different this week. Michael and Fi have had their romantic encounter and Fi's looking to play house. Michael has more interest in his dossier than her and Fi isn't about to put up with it. When she asks Michael for help with a bounty, she turns that situation to her advantage. Fi doesn't want to turn this guy, Thomas McKee, over to the cops. He says he's innocent and she believes him. But more importantly, he's attractive and maybe she can use him to make Michael jealous. In the meantime, they have to keep Thomas away from the other bounty hunter on the case, Wayne Ray. That is one big dude and he doesn't play around. Let's get back to the case. Thomas is being framed for the theft of a $2-million brooch. He had access to it and all circumstantial evidence makes him look guilty. The real thief, Lawrence Henderson, owns the hotel the brooch was stolen from. He's been cleared by the police but he's got a slightly shady past. Michael and Sam's friend Barry, a money launderer (I was hoping we'd see him again), introduces them to Cristo, a fence. Through Cristo, Michael and Sam can pose as buyers and get Lawrence out in the open with the brooch. They just have to make sure the cops catch him with the piece on him. In order to make sure Cristo doesn't blow Michael's cover, he takes some collateral - a very attractive and expensive diamond bracelet. In the meantime Michael's trying to find out more about Philip Cowan, the guy who burned him. All Sam could get from his buddies is that Philip is in counterintelligence. They have no way to contact him and no way to get a message to him, unless Michael does it in a way that makes things uncomfortable for Philip. He asks Fi to set up a meeting with one of her many black-market contacts, a Libyan named Anwar. Michael gives him some intel that his country's been after, and in return Anwar sends Philip a fruit basket. That riles Philip so much that he calls Michael. Did anyone recognize the voice? I couldn't quite place it, but I know I've heard it before. Sam and Fi have larger roles to play in this scheme, and I enjoyed getting more face time with them. Fi is no joke when it comes to making her man jealous. Yikes. She does everything big, doesn't she? And I really enjoyed Sam's cover identity, mostly because he wasn't allowed to drink. He's constantly offered quality alcohol and is constantly turning it down. If I didn't enjoy Bruce Campbell's performance before this, I do now. And let me clarify that I love Bruce Campbell; I watched every episode of Adventures of Brisco County Jr. - when it originally aired in the '90s. Some great dialogue: " "It's not every day you get to read a fictional account of your whole life." " Barry: "Name's Cristo. Like Madonna with the whole one-name thing." Sam: "Like Charo." Barry: "Sting." Sam: "Fergie." Barry: "Pelé." Sam: "Spiderman." Barry: "Liberace." Sam: "Crap, I can't think of any more." " "Selling stolen goods is all about discretion. You've got to be the kind of person who can keep your mouth shut." " "Mike, need some advice? Ladies like attention. They don't want to be second to a dossier. Not even a big one." " "I've been accused of being a major security risk. It's time I started acting like one." " Wayne: "Where'd they go?" Michael: "I can't tell you if you keep choking me." " "Thanks, but I'm not a drinker." " "I thought you'd be taller." " "Clandestine meetings are never fun to arrange." " "Torture's unpredictable, as you know." " "I haven't done this sort of thing since there was an East Germany." " "Fiona likes to test relationships with the emotional equivalent of artillery fire." " "Next time, Lawrence, go limp. It's really hard to drag a human shield." " "You're a money launderer for Christ's sake. Why do I have to buy lunch?" " "The security services in my country aren't known for being gentle." " "You know who I did this for, Fi." We've finally learned the name of Sam's special lady friend. It's Veronica. And to replace her smashed snow globe, Michael gets Fi a Miami one. This makes two episodes in a row with no mama Westen. I think she's great and I definitely want to see more of her. Hopefully she'll be in next week's show. Thanks for all the great feedback. I'm just happy there are others out there enjoying this show as much as I am. Check out our Online Video Guide for more on Burn Notice. show less
