Burn Notice

Episodes 11 + 12

Loose Ends

Parts 1 + 2


Original air date: 09/20/2007

The episode starts on Michael’s set at the Coconut Grove Convention Center Studio.  Michael receives a text to go meet at the Bayshore Park fountain @ 1:00.

Michael goes to meet at the fountain, but it is not Bayshore Park. For this scene the crew traveled out of Miami-Dade to Hollywood, Fl. in Broward County. This scene was filmed in Young Circle.

My black camera bag is positioned about where Michael was standing.

Michael decides he is probably being watched from the top of the Hollywood Bread buildings parking garage. A little late figuring that out but he heads over there any-ways.

Michael receives a package.

The next scene returns us to Michael’s place which was filmed at the studio.

Then Sam goes to meet the new client, Gillian. This was also filmed in Hollywood, Florida.  It was filmed at the Hollywood Marina on North Lake, part of the Intra Coastal Waterway.

We then go to Melissa’s, the other clients house. This was a pretty easy find because they were nice enough to show us the address on the house. With the alley looking like Hollywood it was only a matter of time before I found it. 1530 Tyler Street, Hollywood.

Overview of Hollywood location used so far.

Next we go to Madeline’s. Filmed at the studio.

Then Sam invites Fiona to lunch to ask for her help. This was also filmed in Hollywood near the other locations. Hollywood Blvd. at N 19th Ave. La Piazza Restaurant.

Black arrow points to cafe.

Next we see Michael walking down the street. He is stated to be on Sobe. but he is not.  He is in Hollywood. In fact he just walked by Sam and Fiona. The Cafe they are eating in can be seen behind Michael as he is walking. He is looking for something that does not belong.

Michael finds his guy at Trader John’s book store. This is now a Kilwins candy and ice cream store.  

Next, Fiona and Sam go to Frisky’s bar to track down the guy Melissa says she meet there. Right away they see her story falling apart. This was filmed at the same place where Sam hired Fiona for the job and had lunch. They had lunch outside, now they are inside La piazza.

Then Fiona and Sam go to Ray Wagoner, the hustler’s house. Amazingly he lives right next door to Melissa in real life. Nice that they so clearly show the address, 1536. 1536 Tyler Street Hollywood.

They liked filming at La Piazza, because in the next scene we are back there again.

Then we see Sam meet up with Michael outside his place. This was filmed at the rear of the studio.

Michael goes into action and meets Kent, the husband. There are lots of clues for this location and it looks like Hollywood but I have not been able to track it down yet.  Location unknown.

Then we see Fiona and Sam back on Tyler Street. Fiona takes care of business and it cuts to Michael at his place listening to their phone conversations.

Sam and Michael then go to a meet with Kent on the Miami River.  Sam is up on the Metro-rail tower. This was filmed in the lot off SE 5th Street just east of the S. Miami Ave bridge. This spot is well known to Miami Vice fans as several episodes used this location including the famous Smuggler’s Blues episode where Trudy is strapped to a bomb in a trailer on this lot.

Goof:  As Michael is escaping he quips “ I just fixed that” referring to the windshield. At that point they are showing a hole in the windshield as he drives. The problem is the scenery is that of sailboats at the Dinner Key Marina, oops.

The gang meets back at Michael’s and forms a plan. From there Sam goes to Gillian’s work place to watch. Fiona stays at Michael’s, and Michael goes for another meeting. Michael is just outside the studio at the Miami City Hall at Dinner Key.
