"Hard Bargain" Season 1, Episode 9

I don't know about you, but I was very excited when I saw Michael and Fi holding hands at the beginning of the episode. I thought maybe Michael finally realized Fi's the girl (sorry, woman) for him or that he was just so tired of fighting her on it that he's giving it a chance. I wasn't too disappointed to find out their coupledom was only a cover. I think part of the fun, maybe the charm, of their relationship is seeing them apart. And at least they don't have relationship issues like Nick and his fiancée Dawn. So Dawn's been kidnapped by Reyes. I had to back my DVR up when I saw that Reyes is none other then Steven Bauer. I love me some Steven Bauer. So anyway, he's the lead bad guy. He has his man Lucio scout targets to kidnap. Once they have their victim in the hideout, they demand a ransom. He's made a lot of money from this endeavor and only one target was killed, and that was unintentional. Michael presents himself as the hostage negotiator - and gets a massage and a gun in his face for his trouble - but also manages to find out where Reyes is keeping Dawn so Sam and Fi can break her out. Mission accomplished. And what's Michael's reward? He gets a discounted price on a gun Fi was eyeing at Nick's employer's house for her birthday. That melted my heart a little. In other developments, Michael is trying to set up a meeting with Perry Clark. Perry Clark might be able to get Michael off the black list. After a series of tests, Perry gets an invite to Michael's place when he's done with the Nick job. Everything seems to be going well until Perry tries to strangle Michael. I thought Michael would get out of this pickle much faster and I was really starting to worry until Michael went for his gun. But now that Perry Clark - real identity to be determined later - is dead, how will Michael and gang find out who wants him out of the picture permanently? And who has Michael pissed off so much that they now want him dead? I would assume all this links back to Philip Cowan (the voice of Richard Schiff). Thanks for your thoughts on that. It was driving me crazy. So many great lines, so little time. Here are some of my faves: "Bureaucrats live for respect. East of the Balkans that means a bribe. In the West it's more about showing you know they're in charge." "Halliburton? I don't know him." "Go ahead. Unlock it first." "Seriously stop... talking. Stop moaning, now. The moaning. It's the moaning. Nick, stop moaning." "The art of turning someone into a double agent is delicate. The target has to be put into a fragile psychological state. Fortunately, fragile psychological states are a specialty of Fiona's." "Yellow pages? Dude, I have a computer." Also, I love the theories you have on who burned Michael; I think the father angle is interesting. Let me know if you have any other thoughts on that. I'm not sure who I like for it yet. Still no Mama Westen? They've got some explaining to do. In the meantime, Burn Notice will be taking a break until Sept. 13 to make room for the US Open.
