Filming took place the second week of August, 2009
The episode starts with Michael standing at the Grove Key Marina boat ramp aside
Scotty’s Landing. Sam is there in a very poorly chosen sniper position. Michael meets
Gilroy and goes for a ride.
They go to a rural area to buy or really steal a .50 cal. machine gun. On the way
there they show a quick flyover of the Key Biscayne Yacht Club and then the waste
water treatment facility on Virginia Key. Neither are related to the actual location
where they steal the machine gun.
Gilroy drops Michael back at the Grove Key Marina and then Michael returns home (set).
From there Sam and Fiona head to Carlito’s (set) to meet Coleman, a new client.
Then we see Michael meet with Agents Lane and Harris. I believe this was filmed on
the FIU Campus, at the south end near the Kovens Conference Center. I have to go
there to confirm the location.
Then we go to Madeline’s house (set) briefly where Sam bugs Fiona’s phone.
Then we head to the job with Fiona and Sam. Address on house appears to be 505 but
the real address is between 4900 and 5000. Hammock Park Dr. Coral Gables.
Because of Coleman’s stupid lies in his resume, Sam has to go into action, he calls
Michael to prepare the passport edit and then he takes some delaying action. He pulls
his S.U.V. Across the road blocking traffic. This was filmed as Sam drove eastbound
on Day Ave. in Coconut Grove. As he gets to Virginia Street he pulls across the road.
The street signs are thankfully clearly visible in the scene.
Then we see Michael at Fiona’s (set) working on the passport.
The thugs verify her passport checks out. We then see our trio at Fiona’s (set).
From their we head back to Gabriel’s mansion on Hammock Park Drive. When he gets
more suspicious and takes Fiona for a ride, he speeds away from the house. Here
we get a brief glimpse of a street sign which is how I located the house.
They drive down a rural road passing over the same stretch a few times. This location
would be near impossible to find had they not used the same location in episode 45,
Friends and Enemies. After watching that episode I recognized this location. SW
240th Street in Princeton, Florida. They are headed eastbound toward SW 137th Ave.
Then south on a dead end street on the west side of the main road in Matheson Hammock
County Park. He skids to a stop (parking brake) and forces Fiona out of the car and
under the bridge.
Michael and Sam arrive across the way at the Marina.
From there Fiona goes to lunch with Gabriel. It took some work to figure this one
out. The place is now closed. This was filmed at Cielo Garden and Supper Club, 3390
Mary St. Coconut Grove.
While there she steals a phone and calls Michael from the ladies room. Thanks to
Karendipitee on the USA Burn Notice Board we know this was filmed on Mary St across
from Florida Ave. In Coconut Grove.
Then we go to Madeline’s where Sam prepares a package.
Then we see Sam deliver the package to Gabriel’s house.
Then we see Michael and Gilroy meeting at a bridge. This looks like a regular bridge
but was in fact just a bike path bridge with a fake section added on to look like
a road so it could later be blown up. This was filmed in Arch Creek East Preserve,
Fiona picks up her package as they head out. Sam and Michael follow. Based on the
frosted over windows and jerky camera it appears the car was not moving and this
was all shot at the studio.
They pull up and stop at the same location where we had seen them talking to Fiona
on the stolen phone earlier. Mary St. near Florida Ave. What gives this location
away is that I could see what appeared to be the Mayfair shops in the background,
and then when Michael opens his door we can see the distinctive Ritz-Carlton buildings
in the reflection.
Then we go inside the same restaurant where Fiona is waiting for the mark or John
who is the mark. Michael saves the day by starting a grease fire.
Gabriel is not happy and speeds off down the same unknown road. They partially block
out the front plate which is an advertisement for the Prestige automobile dealership
They stop at some abandoned buildings underneath a water tower. Thanks to Karendipitee
on the Burn Notice board we now know that this was filmed in Princeton, at SW 238th
Street and West Dixie Highway. Very near where they stole the machine gun.
Sam is tracking her. His screen indicates she is on NW 71st Street by Area 226 Park.
Michael and Sam arrive to save Fiona as things get heated.
Then we return to Fiona’s.
Next Sam and Michael set off to take care of Gilroy business. Michael sets up the
bridge to blow.
Sam calls from the airport to update Michael. This was filmed at the studio.
Then we see the jet has landed. This was generated by computer. They are on the North
campus of F.I.U. near where Michael had earlier met with Agents Lane and Harris.
Michael blows the bridge at Arch Creek East Preserve near the north campus of F.I.U.
Michael makes a run for it down the bike path (westbound). He runs to Gilroy’s truck,
only to find him shot and locked to a bomb. Gilroy explodes but not before telling
Michael that Simon is back in town looking for him. Simon was the prisoner.
