Finch discovers that a company called Decima is responsible for the virus which is causing these problems of inconsistency. The machine finally does dispense a number, it belonging to Ernest Thornhill, whose business of late has been buying up pay phone companies.

Quotes

Harold Finch: You changed the machine. You put in a back door.
Nathan Ingram: I couldn't quit thinking about those people, those people that you said were irrelevant.
Harold Finch: So you have it send you their numbers.
Nathan Ingram: That's all I could pry out of it. I never know whether I'm looking at a victim or perpetrator.
Harold Finch: And you just have the numbers sent directly here?
Nathan Ingram: Honestly - and I know this will sound odd - but it was like it wanted me to, as if it was waiting. And I-I took precautions.
Harold Finch: Precautions? This is the federal government we're ...

One of the best episodes this season. Full of twists and turns

Jim Caviezel, you are a beauty. The whole episode keeps us on the edge and it kept me wondering what's gonna happen next. As the seasons unfold a lot of things about the MACHINE are disclosed.

Though I'd really want to see the past footage when Nathan dies and from where did Finch got his limping leg and injured spine.

This was helluva episode, as good as the season finale. Just imagining if the penultimate episode left us on a cliffhanger, what's going to be the finale.

Eagerly looking forward to it. Cheers Jonathan Nolan, one great Television series you have made. It just got renewed for 3rd season too (Excited for that)

Hope this one makes up to 8-9 or 10 seasons...just can't seem to get bored of it. kudos guys, thanks for PERSON OF INTEREST.
