Burn Notice: Past & Future Tense / Season: 4 / Episode: 7 (00040007) (2010)
Production Code: 00040007
July 22, 2010
After a brief meeting with Jesse’s old boss Marv to see if he’ll help with their investigation, Michael spies a Russian wetworks team and follows them to an aging spy (Guest Star: Burt Reynolds), who made a lot of enemies on both sides of the Cold War. To save his life, Michael has to help him outrun the Russians while also getting in touch with a high-ranking Congressman, intending to blackmail to protect the old man, only to have him call their bluff. With the Russians tracking them, it’s a simple task to set a trap for them and use their capture as leverage to force the congressman’s hand. Fi and Jesse, however, continue to press Marv, who finds the safety deposit box as well as evidence that would point Jesse to Michael’s role in losing his job; even though Fi destroys it, she protests keeping the secret and accuses Michael of caring more about his mission than the people who always support him.
