Burn Notice,' you need a great female guest role and the right actress to fill it


The other night on Burn Notice, we presumably said goodbye to Navi Rawat's Kendra, an assassin who finally got truly interesting when she repeatedly beat her own head on the desk during Michael and Jesse's interrogation to prove she wasn't going to break. The shot of her smirking as the blood oozed from the wound - more memorable than any scene that involved Moon Bloodgood's Miami PD detective in season 3. By the end of the hour, I was almost sorry to see her go. Why haven't we seen a great female foil for Michael on this show since Tricia Helfer's handler Carla? Bloodgood replaced Jennifer Esposito, who had to back out of that guest spot at the last moment and maybe would have brought a playful spark. Rawat was a step in the right direction and definitely felt more lethal, but we didn't get to experience her full wrath until the evening of her exit because she'd spent so much of her time on suggestive phone calls with Michael (Fiona: I wish our phone conversations were as flirty. Michael: She threatened to kill me. Fiona: I can do that.)
