'Burn Notice' 5.09 'Eye For An Eye' Review

Things are full speed ahead in this week's Burn Notice. There's a case that shows us great acting andplenty of explosions, plus there's a substantive lead in the hunt for Max's killer. What more could we ask for as we approach midseason?

Thanks to Fiona's ex-boyfriend, Team Westen is now armed with the identity of the bomb-maker. His name is Lucien (Patrick Bauchau), and he happens to be an elderly war criminal in hiding. He might look innocuous (he's even got a cane!) but he is one wily piece of work. He's not inclined to be of any use until they threaten to deport his daughter - then he gives up the identity of the man who hired him.
