Though certainly not the most impressive thing about the Burn Notice series finale, "Reckoning," it was still splendid to hear everyone's opening credit soundbites worked into the dialogue throughout the course of the episode. Sam got to say his "bitchy little girls" line, Fi said "Shall we shoot them?" and Jesse even got to say a version of "That's how we do it, people." Though a bit more somber with "I guess that's how we do it," after Mike asked him to stay behind and protect Madeline and Charlie. Even Fi got to say the "My name is Michael Westen" line at the end. It might seem like a clunky touch, but for a show that's often chased its own tail I felt like this was just a loving look back at all the characters. Oh, and a small, fun dig at the fact that fans, ever since the end of Season 1, have wondered if the show would ever get a proper opening. Especially after the show stopped being about Michael getting burned by the CIA.
