Advertisements After all the running around Team Machine had to do to save the Machine, its not surprise that they need some downtime. Unfortunately, the Machines requires a lot of work to get it back up and running so Finch and Root are pulling all nighters while Reese (and Fusco) are cooling their heels. Of course there are bugs and the first one we see is where the Machines facial recognition routines, which allows for a humorous sequence where the actors get to play each others characters for a bit. After a reboot and some borrowing of additional processors from an electronics warehouse, Finch thinks the Machine is operational and it promptly spits out over two dozen numbers. While Reese and Fusco start checking out the numbers, Finch and Root are running further diagnostics when the Machine concludes that the team are threats (and to be fair, theyve all done deviant things in the past) and goes on the defensive, because its lost its sense of context, including time context. (Hey, can the Machine see into the future?) And it starts attacking Root and puts a hit out on Reese. However, Finch cant just use the Date -s command to fix things. He has to restore its sense of context. I thought this was an interesting shades of grey argument that Finch used and he finally uses the case files of the previous people that theyve helped to show the Machine that they are trying to do good. Other things included Reese feeling lonely and wearing the bowling and Root smacking Harold on the behind help round out the episode plus I liked Harold saying he taught the Machine by example just before breaking into that warehouse with Reese. Whats up with Finch seeing Grace though?
