The next number the machine dispenses is that of Scott Powell, who is seemingly undistinguished from the many in the working middle class. He works as a construction projects manager for the city, he is a family man with a wife and two children, and the Powells live a typical suburban middle class lifestyle. But as Finch and Reese dig a little deeper, they find that he was laid off from his job eight months ago which he has not told his wife, he is still unemployed but pretends to go to work every morning, he has maxed out their credit cards, and he has been blogging negatively about Congressman Michael Delancey, whose policies led to the municipal cutbacks which cost Powell his job.

Throughout the show, but also in this episode, we can see totally wrong IP addresses. When Finch is tracing the Trojan horse of the tracker we see "Accessing network on IP 6126.96.36.199.9". This is totally wrong format of IP address and is kinda irritating, because most of the technical stuff in the show is on level, but this seems to be totally overlooked. IP addresses contain 4 number groups, separated by dot ("."). Each number is between 0 and 255. So a valid IP would be for example 188.8.131.52. The producers could use some invalid IP address (like the 555 phones) not to mess with real ones, but should at least use the correct format. See more
