Storyline

Sam Shaw and her associate Michael Cole receive numbers from the machine much like Finch and Reese, but they receive the ones relating to terrorist threats, which they are to extinguish. Working as field agents for the US Government, they, however, do not yet know the source for the numbers. Shaw and Cole end up being the next numbers Finch and Reese receive. Despite Shaw and by association Cole having killed many in the past, Reese and Finch receive their numbers as the intended targets. The perpetrators are insiders who want to dispose of them because they are questioning and thus getting close to finding out the source of the numbers. Shaw specifically is initially unaware that she is targeted because of where they are heading toward in that questioning. As Shaw tries to find out who gave the kill order on her, Reese and Finch have problems keeping her safe if only because of her suspicious nature as a killer agent, and her loner attitude. What they all are also unaware of is that ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

Apart from the 'cesium' being the wrong color (silver-grey instead of light brown), there should also be much more of it. Cesium has an extremely low density of 1.93 g/cm³ - a little over two thirds that of aluminium. The volume of half a pound of it would therefore be at least 129.5 cm³, or 4.5 ounces. A lot more if it was coarse grains. See more »

Quotes

Sameen Shaw: I'll turn myself in, but only to the boss. I wanna meet Control.
Wilson: Nah, I don't think so. I call my boss, you try to kill him. It's very embarrassing for me.

"Do you think she'll call us a taxi?" (last line of dialog)
13 September 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

OMG.

Amy Acker and Sarah Shahi in the same episode? Two of the strongest female actors of the era punching out their portrayals of two of the strongest fictional characters of the era, all set against the backdrop of what is (generally) one of the best-produced shows of the era.

How can you go wrong? Answer: you can't. If for example you were to set the first Mission Impossible film as your baseline for an acceptable thriller, this single episode surpasses that baseline by a considerable margin.

And, where I seem to have made it my mission to identify specific episodes of popular series for special mention in the IMDb, I seldom have the pleasure of finding reviewers ahead of me. But for this episode it looks like there was a queue of well-wishers already in place, and frankly they deserve to be there.

For a series which has pretty much "set the bar" for character introductions -- the first episode of this series contains a fight scene which is now iconic -- this intro of Sarah Shahi takes us to a new level of TV excellence.
