Storyline

Carter is dealing with internal affairs about a possible wrongful shooting on her part which resulted in a fatality. During the process, Terney shows his true colors to her. She has to figure out how to get herself out of her predicament, as well as prevent HR from carrying out its grand plan, even if it means helping the enemy. Meanwhile, the machine has rebooted itself, and has provided Root with 24 hour unfettered access to what it sees. The one thing it will not tell her is where the machine is located, which is her ultimate goal so that she can "set it free". She seemingly has Finch assisting her. Although she knows that Reese is following her, she is unaware that Finch also maneuvered the machine in providing Reese, and by association his current sidekick Shaw, who he tells from where the information is coming, that same unfettered 24 hour access. Beyond the location of the machine, what Reese also wants to know but which the machine will also not divulge is Finch's whereabouts.... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Special Counsel: I always knew there was someone behind Ingram. Like a black hole. Invisible, but powerful. So tell me, where did you move the machine?
Harold Finch: It moved itself.
Special Counsel: But who controls it?
Harold Finch: As of now, it controls itself.
Special Counsel: The numbers, will they continue to come to us?
Harold Finch: That will be up to the machine.
Special Counsel: If they don't start up again, the country is defenseless.
Harold Finch: No, just less well-defended. I think we both understand that what's at stake here has moved beyond simply defending the country.
Special Counsel: Has it? You built the machine...

Seeking Admin... or Seeking Admins

"God Mode", the episode name itself is interesting and mind blowing. As the Season finale of season 2 start you get the feeling that you're in for a hell of a ride. The best parts of show were the finch's flashbacks which really makes his story more interesting and solidifies his cause for saving people day in day out. As seen in last episode whoever receives the call will be the new admin of the 'machine' and both root & Reese take the call. In this episode all starts the hunt for the machine's location with two admins. With lots of back story of finch and some fantastic & mind blowing twist in the episode it ends on a really really high note.

Although some weak points of the show were that No Fusco, carters story was good but too short. It was all and all an excellent way to end the season 2.

9/10
