Reese is out of his element with their next number belonging to Graham Wyler, a seemingly straight laced family man who lives and owns his own small hardware store in suburban Far Rockaway, New York. Reese learns that surveillance in the residential suburbs is much different than it is in the city. That's why Finch sets up a cover for him as a suburban family man who moves in across the street from the Wylers. It is up to Reese to find his own "wife", who he chooses being an old friend who owes Reese, but to who the suburbs are equally as foreign. As they dig a little deeper, they learn that Graham Wyler is an assumed identity - one taken from a dead man - that Wyler's wife Connie and their teenaged daughter Izzy are probably unaware. As they discover who Graham Wyler really is, they believe his past will come back to haunt him, with Graham having the options of taking the right path to a somewhat happy ending with his family, or the wrong path into a violent life of crime. Meanwhile,... Written by Huggo

Good episode
19 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is IMHO a bit of an oddment episode. When John finds out it's not so easy 'viewing' in the suburbs Finch buys a house, car, clothes and 'golf clubs'! This is when you see Zoe in her real good act mode and John in his too. This episode is certainly worth a second viewing because you see good acting on all parts. Look at the expression of Carter towards the end, Zoe regarding the proposal and even Zoe / Reece at the end regarding the 'extra night'. This series is generally a bit 'too' good you know and where the heck will 'The Machine' lead us to to next I wonder?!

Big Time Spoiler; The concept of this episode is the finding of a man with a hidden past. For 15 years he's lived the life of a dead person. The 'bad' people who her originally worked with have been released from jail and he never participated in their last heist which sent them there. They believe he's the guilty one and not them. Enter Finch/Reece to sort it all out. The group intend to thieve jewels from a prominent figure. They use they found person to unlock the safe in a 42nd floor penthouse. He can unlock by precision (a lost art) and they intend to kill him or leave him to be arrested etc. Enter Reece (with Carter knowing all about it). The end result is the 'baddies' getting caught however the (now) good guy turns himself in. The last scene is the man wears a 'tracker' on his ankle, Reece and Zoe move out however she suggests they stay another night and he sounds positive about it! (bad bad!!)
