2010. Finch has just received the latest number from the Machine, on which he will work with his operative, Rick Dillinger. The two have an uneasy relationship. Dillinger doesn't fully trust Finch as Finch tells him nothing beyond what he needs to know for the number in question, while Finch believes Dillinger is too self-interested and takes too many risks, both which may be liabilities for the work in general. That number belongs to Daniel Casey, who works as a freelance computer hacker, hired by companies to try and break into their systems. Two months earlier, he seemed to go underground, which leads to Finch and Dillinger believing that he may have found some information in his computer hacking that someone wants or that his clients want hidden. That does end up being the case, as he seems to want to turn that information over to someone in authority who can protect him. Finch and Dillinger will find out that more than one group is after him, one group that wants the information,... Written by Huggo

John Reese: That sounds like a hell of a party.
Kara Stanton: You got plans? Going back to stalking the ex-girlfriend again?

PERFECT, could use as a template in film school, wow
17 March 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews


First to be clear let's talk about the episode. Not merely the best in the series so far, not merely technically perfect, but soars even above the usual standards for POI. The script which is flawless works on multiple levels, not only telling a story via the trope of flashback but carefully introducing new elements like a time release drug to shock the viewer in real time and yet (this is not easy, trust me) also adding to our understanding of the characters for episodes to come.

"Wow" does not do justice. Nor is the 10 score high enough.

I need to repeat this is technically perfect, no false notes, no wasted words or frames, and constant viewer connection.

Makes those handful of TBAA episodes ("touched by an angel" theme in the lesser POI entries) look tawdry in comparison.

And the script team from ARROW, who have turned the flashback, as a reliable script device, into a weapon of torture should be forced to watch this episode on a continuous loop with their eyelids taped open.

Not to benefit them. To benefit their viewers.
