Burn Notice: Past & Future Tense

When an ex-CIA spy is in trouble, Michael sees that it is his duty to protect him from the Russian operatives that arrive at a spy convention. While Michael is protecting the ex-spy, Jesse is getting deeper into knowing who burned him and meets with his former employer. Michael has his hands full with controlling the information that is given to Jesse and protecting anyone from getting killed and Fiona is on the fence to whether or not back Michael and his "secret" any longer.
