The next number the machine dispenses is for Wayne Kruger, an Internet genius and head of a company called Life Trace, which allows people to find others through information readily available already on the web. However, Finch learns that Life Trace's primary goal, its money making venture, is as a data broker, selling the information it gathers to people who will pay for it. As Kruger prepares to make what is perhaps the biggest deal of his career, he wants to be as open and transparent as possible with his prospective clients... or so he says. Finch, Reese and Shaw also learn that there was a class action lawsuit against Kruger and Life Trace by people who were ultimately hurt by the information that was provided through the site. They believe Kruger is the target, as someone or some people, probably a coalition of those behind the lawsuit, want to expose Kruger in very public means for not being as open concerning his own life as he purports.

Bear let Mr Kruger get away? Really?
5 March 2016 | by mjingersonSee all my reviews

Love the show, I am perplexed as to why it is having such a hard time to get a solid following. OK, well maybe with the direction the show took the past couple of years, maybe. Anyway, I have just watched this episode, Nothing to Hide, as a re-run and I paid particular attention to how Mr. Kruger escaped the safe house with Bear there. It didn't show that specifically, only eluded to the fact, that Bear did not let him leave without a fight, as slight as it may have been. With that being said, I have worked with Military K-9 teams (which according to the story line, that is Bear's back story) and I can assure you that this man would not have left unharmed (by Bear) and that Bear would still be alive and well. I realize this is Hollywood, but I think you just stepped into the realm of a Disney fairytale.
