    Quite the cliffhanger.

    I look forward to the new season in June.

    I just hope its not repeats of having a new client every week.

    Yea I saw it. I love that show. I kinda agree about him not helping everyone and focusing on his career. However, he had the chance last season with "Management" but chose to jump out of a helicopter. Why would he start working with them again? I think next season is gonna be good though.

    Not to hijack, but I think the show Justified is on the same channel and starts in less than 2 weeks. That should kill some time until June when the Burn Notice starts again.

    Saw it.
    If he goes back to the Company, there is no show.
    Why would they leave him in one town?

    And...Go Fi!

    I caught it too. I became a fan midway through this season. I ordered a pair of his sunglasses last night. A polarized pair of michael westons sunglasses can be had for as low as $23.99. If anyone is interested just do a google search.

    He was with the CIA, not the Company. The Company is a private organization. The Company and Management are the ones who messed up his file and got him burned so he'd have nowhere to go and would have to work for THEM. They switched his file with Simon's and the CIA disavowed him. The show could actually get better is he starts infiltrating the whole Company to take them down.

    I agree, WTH is going on? Last season he was screaming "I want you people out of my life!" and now he's working with them?

    They need to get their storyline straight.

    If he does go back to 'whoever', it could still work, they could send him around the U.S. or overseas on missions, which he could wrap up in one television hour and be back in Miami to help someone the next week.

    Sorry but no. He even said in the episode," sometimes being a spy means you have to work with the people you hate the most"

    Maybe I should have said it better, because you are right. He did say that last season, but last night he said about working with people you hate. Plus working with that guy was the only real way out of all the trouble he was in.


    Oh, it was a no about the storyline, I just went back and I bolded too much

    I wonder if Gabriel Anwar is using Meth? She really looked much more skinny and shriveled on the last episodes of season 3. :shocked:

    Looks like an interesting turn. I just hate how they break up the series with two runs a year.

    The Company is slang for CIA.

    She wasn't that hot in Season 1. They just hid it better with make-up. Now it's practically impossible. She has more mileage than Michael's car.

    Getting tired of it. NEVER watch it in reruns. It's a one-and-out show to me.

    In real life, yes, but for the purposes of the show they are two different entities.

    In the previous episode, Westin was talking to the regular FBI agents about Gilroy. When they wouldn't do anything about it, he suggested they talk to the CIA. Neither Westin nor the agents made any reference to the CIA being his former employer. I would think that would have been brought up if that had been the case.

    I think he was with a CIA-like agency, but not the CIA. It's a minor point..

    In the very first episodes of the show they all but say he works for the CIA. The keep referring to it as "The Agency". The show is based on the real-life adventures of Michael Wilson, an ex CIA op who is a consultant for the show, so I'm pretty sure "The Agency" is the CIA. Like you said, minor point.

    The "Company" however, is a different story. The Company is a private merc/spy firm that wants Westen to work for them.

    Here is a background story I found on USA's site:

    "Justified" is going to be on FX--NOT USA Network.
