Jesse Porter (Coby Bell) is a former Counterintelligence Field Activity agent introduced in the fourth season premiere. He was initially stationed in the field, but his risky and impulsive tactical maneuvers led to him being demoted to desk duty. Because of his research on the war-profiteering organization that Management was hunting, Michael stole Jesse's work in the course of his investigation, unintentionally resulting in Jesse becoming burned. Jesse came to Michael for help as a fellow burned spy, which Michael accepted. But the fact that Jesse was insistent on exacting revenge led the team to have to cover their trails leading to his burning. Left with nothing as Michael was, Jesse moves in as a tenant with Madeline, and Jesse quickly fits into the team and their regular jobs.
