Finch receives thirty-eight numbers from the Machine. They are all for New York police officers, four who are known to be within HR's ranks. Reese knows Carter's focus has been to bring down HR, which she can only do by finding out who the head of HR is. And he also learns from Fusco that things seem to be breaking down between HR and the Russians, led by Peter Yogorov. Reese is worried that Carter, who has not told anyone that she's found out that Alonzo Quinn is the head of HR or that she was present at the shooting deaths of Officer Mike Laskey and Detective Raymond Terney, is orchestrating HR's downfall, hence the reason for the thirty-eight numbers. Carter implies as much to Reese. She also tells both Reese and Fusco that she needs to handle this issue on her own, despite their respective arguments that they can help. Carter decides to enlist those only on an as need be basis, but she has to be careful who she can and cannot trust, especially those outside her inner circle. ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Shortly thereafter, Simmons responds with "To be or not to be, bitch." That quote, from Hamlet, begins one of Shakespeare's greatest soliloquies, about the decision Hamlet must make: to live and face the trouble he knows is coming, or to commit suicide and face the unknown, which may be even worse.

John Reese: Joss? Where are you?
Joss Carter: I can't tell you that. But I know exactly where you are. Thought you promised to keep your distance.
John Reese: That was before I knew you were starting a war. We know about Quinn and what he did to Cal.
Joss Carter: Then you know why he can't get away with it.
John Reese: Take it from me. Revenge isn't the answer. Tell me where you are. Please just let me help you.
Joss Carter: You once asked me to trust you to do what needed to be done. Now I'm asking the same of you.
