Together, they help a doctor out of a jam (The Shield's Benito Martinez), go after a crazy hit woman (Numbers' Navi Rawat), and take the heat off a veteran spy (Burt Reynolds with an ill-advised neckerchief). Michael also reunites with his nemesis Simon (Garret Dillahunt) in hopes of taking down a common enemy (played by Robert Patrick). Other cases involve biker gangs, bad accents, kidnappings, prison riots, and a catfight (between Anwar and returning guest star Callie Thorne).
Adding a new character to an established show represents a risk, but Bell fits right in, and complicates the connection between Michael and Fiona, with whom he shares a "tactical" kiss. He also finds allies in Madeline (Sharon Gless), and his ex-handler, Marv (Richard Kind). Soft stuff aside, Burn Notice remains as destructive as ever with car crashes, fiery explosions, and high-powered weaponry, but there's nothing else quite like it on TV. Extras include a featurette on Sam, a stunt demonstration, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and chops-busting commentary on the season finale. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
