Storyline

Carter believes the only safe place to take Quinn into custody is to the FBI. Although she wants to do it alone, Reese insists that he help her. From the outside, Shaw and Fusco are determined to help their partners. As the head heavy for HR, Simmons has ordered his team to capture Carter and Quinn alive, but shoot to kill "the man in the suit". That order to kill the man in the suit, whose photo has been circulated, extends to all criminals in the city. That is why the Machine dispenses as its next several sets of numbers all previous aliases of one person, namely Reese. This may make Reese more of a liability to Carter in her mission. In helping Carter, all on the team may need their own help from the others as HR goes about trying to stop Carter and anyone who may be helping her. Meanwhile, Finch come across a dilemma of whether to ask for Root's help potentially to save Reese. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Officer Patrick Simmons: Petersen, surprised you dragged your ass out of bed.
Detective Petersen: I was told there was a chance to shoot people. Imagine my disappointment, suit's a no-show. Probably laying low. Doubt he's gonna stick his head out again.
Officer Patrick Simmons: Our pal stormed a judge's house. Subtle he ain't. He's hiding, all right, but you can bet it's in plain sight.

Probably One of the Peaks of the Television Medium
22 November 2013 | by (warren michigan) – See all my reviews

I have seen The Crossing twice. Each time, I have been more and more impressed. Unbearable suspense, superbly paced direction, fine camera work, crisp, witty writing, stunning performances from all of the leads and from the villains. It has some of the most exhilarating moments in television history, and one of two or thee most heartbreaking as well. If Kevin Chapman does not get an Emmy for this episode, I will gravely disappointed. If the writers do not, I will be startled. If Taraji Henson does not, I will know the Emmy's are fixed.

I will go further. This was comparable To James Agee's Lincoln (OMNIBUS) Orson Welles' The Fountain of Youth, The greatest episodes of The Twilight Zone and the Honeymooners, Marty, Patterns, The Comedian, Twelve Angry Men, Sam Peckinpah's Noon Wine (And "Line Camp" from The Westerner, , The Fabulous Fifties, the Chief Dan George episode of Kung Fu, "Jose Chung's From Outer Space" and "Postmodern Prometheus" (Kung Fu)My World and Welcome To it, "Fall-out" (The Prisoner) and the best routines of Ernie Kovacs. This episode didn't just PUSH the envelope: It BROKE IT.
