As Carter follows a lead as to Finch's identity and whereabouts, Finch, believing now that he can trust Carter to a certain extent, provides her a small glimpse in answer to her comment, "I need to know what you do." Meanwhile, Finch manages to get Reese, who was shot in the chest, some underground but expert medical attention. As Reese recuperates, he and Finch trade places on their next case, where Reese is behind the computer and Finch does the legwork. That case is of Ernie Trask, the superintendent of the apartment building where Reese is convalescing. Because of Trask's seemingly all consuming work, they believe the incident with which he will be involved concerns one or some of the building's tenants. Since he recently bought an untraceable handgun, they assume he will be the perpetrator. They ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

John Reese: I know you won't carry a gun, but if I'm sending you back in the field, you're getting some basic self-defense.
Harold Finch: Oh, I really don't think...
John Reese: No, listen up. If Trask comes at you, put your fingers straight out like this and strike at his eyes.
Harold Finch: Poke him in the eyes? That's your technique?
John Reese: No that's YOUR technique. And if that doesn't work you can always take your thumb, jam it in his eye socket and twist until you hit his brain.
Harold Finch: Please stop...!

Gets better with each episode
12 January 2012 | by (North Dakota, USA) – See all my reviews

It took me several episodes to start really engaging with this show, and I credit the performances of the cast to keep me coming back. But this episode was the whole package, and I feel like my patience has been supremely rewarded. As a huge fan of Hitchcock, I love how the writers wove an homage to *Rear Window* into the weekly POI process (amusingly), even while including a meaty flashback and two additional story lines that progress the larger narrative and mysteries without weighing the viewers down. And there was a lot to absorb in this ep. (I was shaking my head after thinking about all that was covered.) In the past when they've tried to build on the back-story, it seemed cumbersome, but ever since about ep. 8, it feels like they're finally finding a balance that works. And the bigger mysteries are not sacrificed in the process. POI has found its feet and it's become MSTV. (Must-see TV.)
