Burn Notice 4.08 "Where There's Smoke" Review

What happens when one of the team becomes part of a hostage situation? Can the crew come together to save one of their own….and for that matter give the episode good ratings.

I was once again disappointed in the way the writers are using Jesse (Coby Bell). Bell has some decent acting ability and Jesse's character should be utilized much more. I know the writers have spent 3 years building the main team of Michael, Fiona, and Sam, but I think it's time to bring Jesse in as more than a sidekick. Maybe the writers are keeping him out of bigger things because they want the reveal of Michael being the "burner" to Jesse to be a big deal. I do have to say Jesse really stood out this episode when he argued with the client for making a deal.

As for the episode, it was great. Fiona being kidnapped allowed for less explosions but we still got enough action out of the episode. We are starting to get a better feel for the Michael/Fiona relationship and the writers are amping it up my hinting at a possible love triagnle soon with Jesse. However, a love triangle still can't save Fiona's (Gabrielle Anwar) acting ability. Her dialogue this episode was presented horrible in my opinion and I think the writers should stick to her being used for explosions and quick one-liners against Sam (Bruce Campbell).
