The Taylor Ashby character's life story and specifics of death were inspired by the life and death of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko. Litvinenko had been a high-level officer in the KGB and the Russian Federal Security Service, but in 2006, after whistle-blowing and claiming that the Russian government and secret service had been responsible for terrorist bombings that helped Vladimir Putin's election, Litvinenko became gravely ill. It was discovered that he had been poisoned with a rare and highly radioactive isotope of an element called polonium (210). From his deathbed, Litvinenko continued to speak out against the corruption he saw in the Russian government and even accused Putin himself of being behind the poisoning. He died from radiation poisoning on November 23, 2006. See more »

This is the best episode ever!!!
27 February 2008 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Most people do not watch Numbers n some of them hasn't even heard about the show...but its one of my favorite..

This episode is ONE OF THE BEST EPISODE.. it was awesome.. Huge suspense and a SHOCKING ending.(perfect way to end a season). As usual the two main character, Don & Charlie Eppes did a terrific job, in this episode you will get to see a little bit of Charlie in Don and vice-versa - you will get to know the character even deeper This whole episode was very well made/shot.

This show is under-rated and i hope it will get more recognition like it deserves.. Hats off to Numb3rs - " you may hate maths, but you will never hate "Numbers"
