Burn Notice: Breaking Point

Burn Notice has returned this November and has marched in like an old friend. Michael is working for Anson who burned as a covert CIA agent who is suppose to betray the CIA. His security clearance has been increased and he claims to have broken all allegiances to Fiona, Sam Jesse and his Mom but old habits die hard. And while the former rogue team is being kept on the down low they are as involved as ever.

History of Michael Weston

Michael Weston was brought up in Miami by his abusive Father and his Mother with his brother Nate. As a teenager he left home and joined the military. When he finished his tour he joined the CIA and spent a great deal of his time working as a covert operative. He worked in Ireland and that is how he met Fiona. He also worked in Afghanistan for many years. His friend and a former Navy Seal Sam Axe use to inform on Weston to the FBI. Michael was content to live the life of a covert operative in isolation. But then he was burned. He lost his job with agency, his credit and back accounts were frozen and he couldn’t tell anyone he use to work for the CIA. So he made peace with his former enemies and they have become his new rogue team. And in his pursuit of finding out who burned him he has to burn a DEA agent Jesse. And Jesse forgives Michael and joins the rogue team as well. But Michael’s Mom, poor Maddy, has been initiated in the spy trade by Michael’s friends.

And where Michael Weston was a battle hardened spy once burned he started becoming a human being again. That is until he found out that burned him. Anson is using Michael’s humanity against him and black mailing him into spying on the CIA in order to keep Fiona out of jail. Michael is playing along and working as a spy off the books of the CIA.

This season should be very interesting to see how Michael holds onto his humanity and love while still being in the Spy Game. The truth is it is almost an impossible feat under idea circumstances and Weston hasn’t seen ideal circumstances in his entire life. Weston is endangered of being a spy compromised by love.

Review

Michael gets his SCI security clearance which is a Sensitive Compartmentalized Intelligence. He receives this clearance in order to plant a program that will erase the existence of Anson. Fiona tracks Anson hoping to find the leverage he is using on Michael. Fiona is determined not to allow Michale to be compromised for loving her.

But in the interim Michael's childhood friend was shot and killed. The only witness is a drug addict, Dolly, who is murdered.

Dion Andrea's killer looks llke he will get away with it. But Michael has him blow up his gang with his cell telephone and Dion is as good as a dead. Andrea's brother Ricky hits him and makes him cut a deal and go to jail for Andrea's murder.

Michael has to betray the CIA for Anson.

So, I'm curious - have you ever actually watched this show? When did Michael swear off his allegiances to Fiona, Sam, Jesse and Maddie? I don't think Agent Pearce thinks anything of the sort. She often sends Fiona along with Michael on jobs. He also did not join the CIA following his Special Forces stint. It is expressly stated in the pilot episode that Michael never worked for any agency directly; he free-lanced for any agency that needed his services. He is tied to the CIA right now but is still not officially "in". He also worked primarily in the USSR and Eastern bloc countries until the Soviet Union broke up. Then he worked in Afghanistan and other hot spots around the world (including but not limited to Ireland and Germany.) He was "burned" while on assignment in Nigeria, Africa. Jesse was NOT a DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) agent; he was actually investigating the same people Michael was searching for in order to find out who burned him. They crossed paths when Michael stole the files that Jesse had compiled on his agency's computer system. Nor did he get this SCI clearance in order to further Anson's nefarious agenda. That just happened to be an unhappy coincidence. He got the clearance in order to be of greater service to Agent Pearce and the CIA as they have several operations in D.C. that they will call upon him to do. (Pearce's words, not mine) Higher clearance will help him move around Washington departments easier.

Last name - Westen, not Weston. And brother is Nate, not Bate.

Sorry - I teach creative writing, research and editing so the lack of these things in published material really brings out the worst in me. And I have followed this show since Day 1; very familiar with the details! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to educate!

Hi Fiforever,

I allow just about everything including criticism. I checked. Bate was a typo but if you are a teacher and researcher I am scared. It is Michael Weston!! Look it up Genius!!! And for the rest of what you wrote the majority of it is conjecture if not completely incorrect. Do yourself and everyone else on hubpages a favor and don't vent your personal frustrations on hard working writers who do their research. One stupid typo and you thought that entitled you to rip into me.

You are a sweetheart. And no, the only person who needs an education is you fan of Michael Westen!!!

FiForever,

For your edification, the main characters name is spelled both ways as Michael Weston and Michael Westen. It is all over the internet. So before you ever tear into anyone again geniues you should make certain you know what you are talking about. It is on the Burn Notice website as Michael Weston and on Google as Michale Weston so if you want to take it out on someone I suggest you take it up with USA and Google both of which I am certain would not give you the time of day.

You know what I noticed about you. YOu have published absolutely nothing but criticism of others work. You never contribute to the hubpages commmunity with your work.

So it is hard ot believe you are anything but a person who is jealous of another's success and wants to tear them down. Those that can't teach and that includes you.

I'll tell you what when you have published almost 400 hubs in six months then I will allow you to post something on my hub again provided you learn to have some manners which obviously you don't.

Obviously you are a person who can't see the forrest through the trees. I am plugging the show for people who haven't watched it to gain a bigger fan base. And you are just trying to ruin this shows adversitments.

Stay off my hubs as your criticism is not welcome especialy when it is you who has not done your research well enough. I knew the difference but it wasn't the point of the hub. Never split hairs on my hub when I am advertising a show.

Really see you in about 400 published hubs in 6 months.
