This season, Michael has been forced to work for the very people who burned him. In the premiere of season 2.5, he wakes up after the explosion at his apartment, alive but shaken. Whoever tried to kill him also killed Carla's sniper and jeopardized her operation. Furious, Carla (Tricia Helfer � "Battlestar Galactica"), Michael's new handler and a known ruthless operative, wants the bomber caught, but Michael sees the bomber as his chance to get a leg up on her � and ultimately find out who is pulling the strings. Meanwhile, he continues helping ordinary people with their extraordinary problems, which never seem to get any easier.
