Sam + Fi are aware of this, but being the GenreSavvy people they are, don't say a word. Mama Westen? Woman Michael helped out long ago, developed a soft spot for, and adopted her as his mother. Anything that doesn't line up with this theory? AWizardDidIt + TimeyWimeyBall

[[WMG: Michael is MacGyver]]
He's just changed a lot since the 1980s. MacGyver was a pseudonym to keep people guessing.
* The "street gang" phase of MacGyver was during an earlier burned period. He's not so patient now.

[[WMG: Jesse knew Michael burned him the whole time, or at least very early on.]]
The show goes to lengths to point out that Jesse works in ''counter-intel.'' Sam even directly tells Michael that Jesse is exactly the type of person who would see through him. Jesse later stops and tells Michael, straight up, that he will kill whoever destroyed his life, keeping eye contact the whole time. He figured out Michael burned him before this point, and decided to test Michael by hinting that he knows and seeing how Michael reacts - he might know Michael burned him, but he likely doesn't know ''why''. Michael deflects, and at this point Jesse assumes Michael is just another amoral espionage type. But then Michael does the OnceAnEpisode noble vigilante deed, and this confuses Jesse. So he tries another test - in the next episode, he tells Madeline that she raised a good man, where Madeline also figures out Michael burned Jesse (thereby confirming it for him as well). But Jesse ultimately comes to the correct conclusion by working with Michael, that he's a good person at heart who didn't maliciously burn Jesse. That's why Jesse makes a big show of getting mad when he comes across evidence of Michael's involvement that he can't deny having or knowing about, but he's really only mad for a couple episodes before coming back in the fold.

[[WMG:The show concept was based on [[Series/TheDukesOfHazzard The Dukes of Hazzard ]].]]
Two men who act like brothers but aren't, assisted by a beautiful but scrappy tomboy and a gruff but wise elder family member, aid the local folk in dealing with crime, evil businessmen, and corrupt government influences, while driving a souped up, classic Dodge Charger.

This sounds familiar.

Micheal Weston is clearly among if not the best spy and most dangerous man on the planet. If he wants you dead you die. While he's a brilliant man his judgement when it comes to being burnt isn't always rational. So the government takes the most dangerous man on the planet forges a few connections and turns the most dangerous man on earth against their problem. [[spoiler: So it's at least possible that the people who burned him got away with it, decided that keeping him out was more dangerous than bringing him in. They will continue to get away with it until someone trips and does or says something stupid. Or Mike sees some guy he interogated having tea and crumpets.]]

* Additionally the Show itself is training footage using actors that resemble Micheal, Fi, and Sam (Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar and Bruce Campbell?), that the real Micheal uses to teach certain lessons to new recruits, I.E. how to handle reluctant assets, how to improvise, and why it's better to stay single in the field.

[[WMG: Fiona Burned Micheal.]]
A few things kind of stuck out at me, one was that Fiona was right at Micheals bedside when he got to Miami. Now maybe it was coincidence or maybe she knew he would be there. It would also explain part of why she gets so irritated at Micheal trying to figure out how he got burned and finding the source since he might discover it was her. It could also be part of why she seemed to react more strongly during season 4 with Jesse than Micheal did, because that old guilt was surfacing again. To clarify, I think it was an accident, she ended up using one of his passwords or something similar and it all came tumbling down. It's also part of why Strickler wanted Fiona removed, aside from her reputation information about what she did and why would end up rippling back through others and cause him no end of grief.

Well, they're played by the same actor at least. Also, think of how useful a role driving a cab or limo in NewYorkCity would be for intelligence gathering. Hell, considering that he works for Libyan intelligence, he's probably investigating Barney's employers - if he isn't working with them...

* This could eventually tie into a future TV movie. Matt Nix has expressed interest in possibly doing one down the line. This will depending on how USA and Fox feel about the idea however.
