The latest number the Machine dispenses is for Maria Martinez, a professional engineer working for Hydral Corp, a private energy company owned by a man named Ken Davis, her boss. Her latest jobs have been in reconstruction projects in third world countries, most recently replacing multimillion dollar generators in Iraq. The team originally believes that she is the perpetrator, a terrorist (which would be contrary to the purpose of the number regardless), as she seems to be interested in getting Omar Risha, another possible terrorist, into the country from Iraq, where he is currently being held in high security detention. She is tracking a man named Rene Lapointe, a French diplomat stationed at the UN, who is the high commissioner for refugees. As such, Lapointe, Maria's seeming-intended target, is responsible for reviewing and thus approving or denying Omar's asylum request.

Shaw asks Reese: What's up with the Evel Knievel stunt? Reese responds: They didn't teach you that in Marine jump school? The Marines do not have a jump school. All branches of the service have to go through The Army Airbone School for paratrooper (military parachutist) training. Reese being an ex Army Ranger would have been well aware of the fact.

John Greer: Hello, Ms. Groves. I commend your tracking abilities. Sense of smell is often the most neglected of the five senses. And one which machines can't replicate. At least not yet.

Root: Churchill.
John Greer: Shall we cut to the chase?
Root: You have some things that don't belong to you - two hard drives, a superconducting chip, and six generators. Which means, either your planning to bring Samaritan online or you're the world's most ambitious gamer.

awesome show - terrible episode
12 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this television show and I am a huge fan of Jim Caviezel and Sarah Shahi, but this episode is TERRIBLE. It has huge plot holes that the writers don't normally have. This episode was barely watchable because I kept telling myself that the characters just wouldn't let that happen. This episode provides very little information in the grand scheme of the show other than how Decima got the power to operate Samaritan.

The main characters are fooled like they were beginners and the special guests are not believable in the least and their plight seems dumb. If you are a fan of the show, skip this episode for the sake of your sanity.
