    I would be much happier with sappy, sentimental ending that than with evil Michael. :eek:

    Actually my preferred ending is still that Michael sees the error of his ways and dies to save his friends. He finally gets peace and they get to live happily ever after.

    Y'all realize that we've seen this helicopter-takes-forever-to-approach-while-Michael-and-the-villain-girl-and-Fi-watch scene before? Like when "management" was coming to meet Michael and Fi shot whats-er-name "Finally."

    Think how they want the series to end, leaving it open for Sam and Jesse to have a spin-off.

    My prediction: Michael does move to get into good graces at the CIA while going on heading James's Robin Hood organization and tries to talk his crew into joining. After all, it's just more of what they've been doing all along with better funding.

    Fi joins or heads back to Ireland on her own.

    Sam and Jesse walk. Get on the plane. (Who's the pilot anyway?)

    Roll credits.

    This leaves it open for Michael and Fi to make guest appearances in the Sam Axe spin-off or more Burn Notice TV movies.

    I would argue that it would NOT be an "evil" Michael if he became co-leader with Sonya. I don't see what James' group is doing as pure evil; as Michael said, I may not agree with all their methods, but I agree with their principles...

    It is Michael betraying everything he has worked for in the last 7 seasons.

    24 parallel and spoiler:

    Michael can choose to be Jack, who fights for what is right, but doesn't help terrorists along the way, or he can become Tony who helps terrorists in the name of what's right to get what he wants.

    Here is how I would have liked that last scene on the roof to go:

    Sonya looks at Fiona and draws her gun, pointing it at Fi, and says "Shall we shoot her?"

    Michael instantly shouts "No!" and then pauses, gazing into Fiona's eyes. Camera zooms in on Fiona's defiant gaze, and then Sonya's fist comes out of nowhere, hitting Fiona on the side of the head and knocking her out.

    Michael bends down and checks Fiona's pulse, then tells Sonya to tie her up. Michael goes back to watching the helicopter.

    Fiona would never allow Sonya to get close enough to punch her.

    Navy SEAL or not, I chuckled at a massively out of shape Sam fighting Michael underwater.

    Who funds James' operation? It's got to be incredibly expensive.

    One of the most over used tv show sayings is "I did it to protect you."

    Yeah, I don't know if Bruce Campbell was ever athletic, but if he was those days are long past him...and their heroic efforts to use camera tricks to make him look like a match for Donovan failed pretty spectacularly. :D

    Fiona hasn't been my favorite person this season but I'll be pissed if Sonya shoots her.

    This is kind of how I felt. Although I'm not sure Mike believes he's betraying his country, only that the CIA is dirtier than James (btw...seems weird they have been calling him James and not by his last name....but whatever). On one hand I wanted Fi to beat up Sonia, but ummmm...Sonia is so cute, so I don't want her face getting messed up LOL.

    The plots on this show have always been really absurd. I don't mind. It's a mindless show, kind of like James Bond (old school), in that the plots are always unrealistic, but the action and banter are always fun.

    Yeah, I said this same exact thing to my kids. "Um, today I deliver James to the CIA, you can watch from over there......"

    My first thought when James said he'd turn himself in is that there's no way he'd ever do that. I think it's a scheme to get close to the CIA. But, I also think that we'll never know because, as we already see, his plan isn't exactly working anyway.

    I also think Mike thinks that by having James turn himself in, he can use his organization to "do good" the way he has been doing throughout the series. Just seems weird how he trusts this guy to do what he says.
