Nobody knows where the Machine has now relocated itself, but it is still in contact with both Finch and, by association, Reese and their new partner Shaw, as well as Root. Still institutionalized, Root may have a short term problem in dealing with her psychiatrist, whom she sees as being stupid, and from whom she has not been provided access to any electronic devices including telephones. Carter, now demoted to patrol following her HR-initiated wrongful shooting incident, has her own new primary agenda. She has also not told Finch or Reese of her association with a past number. And the Machine has dispensed another number to Finch, that of navy sailor, petty officer second class Jack Salazar. Upon first sighting, Reese, despite or partly because he chose the military over a prison sentence for an assault five years earlier, likes Salazar, a man who seems to stand up for his principles and his friends and who knows how to take care of himself using his fists.

Did You Know?


At one point, Shaw tells Finch that an operation has gone "pear-shaped". This is a traditionally British expression for a situation that has gone horribly wrong. See more »


Although a shot and a beer are known as a boilermaker in most of America, what Reese gave Finch was technically called a depth charge, where the shot-glass is dropped into the beer. See more »


John Reese: Celebrating or commiserating?
Jack Salazar: Both. RJ took the rap for everything. Captain gave me a desk-drawer reprimand and two days swabbing the deck. I got an hour left of liberty before I gotta get back on the ship.
John Reese: So what's the plan now?
Jack Salazar: Captain thinks I could make it through buds, become a seal, but after what happened, I'm not so sure about the military anymore. Thought maybe there was a chance for a normal life after my tour's up, like those two.

Things are going to get complicated.
24 September 2013 | by LathspelllSee all my reviews

The third season has started with the addition of Shaw to the team of dead vigilantes. And though she is beautiful, she's dangerous. With Taraji P Henson and Jim Caviziel in their respective roles the new season has brought with it unknown possibilities. The Machine has hidden itself in an unknown location and has chosen Root to be her new contact in the world. Why though? Maybe we'll find out this fall. Now this is all about the last season.

This season is just beginning and the first episode reveals some hints as to what might come. Still everything is shrouded in the realm of uncertainty. The fate of Harold, John, Shaw, Carter and Fusco are too deeply connected now and we can only hope that there is no fallout from the government agency which was brilliantly tricked by the Machine. Although no new characters have been introduced yet, the day is still young and we'll never know what twist the fates may take though definitely the Machine does.

Until next week, that's all.
