Burn Notice - Season 5, Episode 18: “Fail Safe”

As a spy, you plan for every contingency.

Michael finally passed the grade with his boss Pierce. He received his first real assignment from the C.I.A.  Job, secure a man who recruits American spies to spy against their country.

Pass the blueberry yogurt. Michael is all over this.

But there’s still this little hiccup. If Michael doesn’t do exactly what blackmailing son-of-a-biscuit Anson wants, Fiona will face life in prison. First mission for Michael, take Anson out.

He surprised Anson at the parking lot where Anson held a fake job. Fi with sniper rifle across the way took a shot at Anson. But a few convincing words from Anson had Michael spare his life.

Michael cannot risk the slightest chance Fiona won’t come out of this free and clear.

Scandal - Gladiators in Suits don't Cry

Scandal series cast members

Pilot Review

The first few minutes I had to actually use closed-caption in order to understand the dialogue. Rat-a-tat-a-tat firing dialogue as Harrison explained to the new hire Quinn that they were not a traditional law firm.

They were crisis experts. Fixers. For those who can afford it. Think of a whole team of Michael Claytons.

They don’t eat, sleep or drink anything but the work. They are as Harrison called it...

'Gladiators in Suits.'

The head gladiator is Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). She’s always right. She decides which clients they take on. She is Maximus in a white suit and high heels.

The first “fix” Olivia made was a $3 million drop for a package. The deal was for $6 million. Before the shady armed men could contradict, she calmly stated that in two hours homeland security would be all over their sorry asses. Olivia told them to take the money and run.

Olivia's team took the package that was in a box. Guess what was in the package. A BABY! They paid off blackmailers -- unbelievable.

Dear Owen,

You cheated on Yang. It’s not unforgivable nor incomprehensible. It’s what men do. You’re hardwired to disassociate emotions from intimacy. Women are hardwired to associate emotions with intimacy.

Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus.

Yang wanted you to tell her about the intimate details of your extra marital intimate encounter. Owen, you refused. You did not want to torture your faithful wife with details of your infidelity. You could not see the good that it would bring.

Owen, please understand a woman needs to know two things when a man cheats on her:

Jarrod and Brandi reopened their newly renovated thrift store. They need inventory like bad. Next auction at North Hollywood.

NoHo units nestled next to all the Hollywood studios. Bidders hope to discover some old Hollywood star memorabilia. But what they hope for isn’t what’s in the units.

First locker crappity, crap, crap, crap-o-lah! Trash bags full of clothes. Boxes.
Nothing good in plain sight. Bid war between Dave and Barry. Fellas, there’s noth-ing there.

Say it with me, Not-A-Thing. Dave upped the bid and Barry took the bait. Bought unit for $2000. Barry, Barry, Barry, what were you thinking...

Among the midst of crappity, crap, crap Barry found an old fashion top hat. He took it for appraisal. Hat, although in good condition worth about $450. Barry bought the unit for $2k. The collector to become a selector, ha!

Not a profitable day at the Las Vegas pawnshop. Items bought:
  • Police Pedal Car – $65
  • Vintage Dunhill Lighter – $1,100
Seller came in with a German made 1890-1891 combination drilling rifle. This simply means it’s a shotgun and rifle, three barrels (funky looking). Bob the armor expert was not impressed when he appraised the gun.

Dents on the barrel. Cracks on the side plate. Replaced hammer. Valued at about $300-$400.

Rick passed because honestly, best anyone could do with it was to hang it on a wall. Could turn it into a curtain rod, just saying.
