^Dornan's run on the show was supposed to be short.
I really liked him and I was excited to see his relationship with Emma get more serious. Maybe by the time the writers found out how popular he was, it was already too late to keep him, haha. At least they replaced him with equally-eye candy worthy Eion Bailey.
I wish Season 1 reruns stayed longer on OnDemand so that I can catch up before season 2 starts. The good thing about cable is they do all day reruns the day of the premiere of a new season. That was how I got into Burn Notice.
