Who’s ready to see Burn Notice tonight? How is Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) going to handle life with Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar behind bars, especially now that he’s so much more emotionally involved with her now than he was when he was first burned as a spy for the CIA? And what kind of friends will Fiona attract in the slammer? New allies? New foes? What are you most excited about this season?
Burn Notice came in at #5 in our Must-See Shows of the Summer and word is that the premiere picks up just minutes after last season’s shocking finale where Fiona turns herself into authorities for a crime she didn’t commit. Considering the Miami Heat is playing Game 2 of the NBA Finals and Burn Notice’s new season is tonight, “Scorched Earth” is an appropriate title, because Miami is feeling hot-hot-hot!
In last season’s mid-season finale, Fiona placed a bomb on a building to kill old pain-in-the-neck, Larry (Tim Matheson), but Anson Fullerton (Jere Burns) had another bomb detonate to kill two security guards in the ground floor. Anson used this event against Fiona and Michael to perform tasks for him that would further bury his name from all of his wrong-doing. But instead, in the Season 5 finale, “Fail Safe,” Fiona refused to be Anson’s puppet any longer and surrendered in hopes of motivating Michael to take Anson out, once and for all. We’ll find out how this riveting set up plays out beginning tonight on USA, at 9pm ET/PT, and every Thursday night throughout the upcoming weeks of Burn Notice Season 6.
