With just six episodes before the fifth season finale, Michael is under the blackmailing thumb of guest star Jere Burns
Just when Michael thought he was out, they pull him back in.
Or rather, he — bad dude Anson, the last member of "Management," the guys who got Michael burned in the first place — pulls him back in.
Anson (guest star Jere Burns) revealed himself in the summer finale of the show. And in tonight's episode, "Damned If You Do," the first of six new episodes that will lead to the Dec. 15 season five finale, Anson continues to blackmail Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) and girlfriend Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) into carrying out his dastardly deeds.
Up first: a trip to Puerto Rico, where Michael and Fi are ordered to get their mitts on a computer virus program Anson desperately wants. Michael's ticked off about becoming a pawn again, but since Anson has proof Fiona blew up that building in which two security guards died, he packs his bags.
Meanwhile, back in Miami, Michael's mama, Maddie (Sharon Gless) helps Sam (Bruce Campbell) and Jesse (Coby Bell) get some much-needed info from the police.
"Burn Notice" returns tonight at 10/9c on USA.
