A little background on the show first: When spies get fired, they don't get a letter from human resources... they get burned. Michael Weston, a blacklisted spy, finds himself in sun-soaked, bikini-filled Miami - a tropical paradise, unless you're stranded without money or resources. He relies on his wits, charm and Special Ops training to put his life back together and find out who set him up and why.
Michael has only two friends he can turn to - Fiona, a beautiful ex-IRA operative who happens to be an ex-girlfriend, and Sam, Michael's closest buddy in town, a washed-up military intelligence contact who is keeping an eye on Michael for the Feds. He's also forced to deal with the family he went halfway around the world to get away from - particularly his mother, who couldn't be happier to have her boy back in town. As he gets closer to the truth, Michael scrapes by helping out whoever needs his services... mostly desperate people who can't go to the police. It's a dangerous gig, but it pays the bills... for now.
The last season ended with Michael in a car in the back of a semi-truck a real cliffhanger and this first episode of the new season jumps right in after a brief recap (enough that new viewers can follow the story easily, but not enough to bore everyone who watched the first season). Michael must now work for the very people who burned him and he does so hoping to get a clue to their identity. Sam and Fi are back once again, as is his mom who continues to nag him . Each of these characters would be interesting in their own right but it is their association with Michael, rather in a personal or professional capacity, that makes them so watchable.
Michael is ordered to help Jimmy (a computer programmer), whose family has been kidnapped, steal some files off a computer. However, the computer belongs to some bad people who don't want it broken into. Michael gets them into the highly secured building that houses the computer and as usual things do not go as planned. At the end of the episode he finally "meets" Carla, the voice behind his being burned and his new handler but they do not get to talk face-to-face.
