Carter believes the only safe place to take Quinn into custody is to the FBI. Although she wants to do it alone, Reese insists that he help her. From the outside, Shaw and Fusco are determined to help their partners. As the head heavy for HR, Simmons has ordered his team to capture Carter and Quinn alive, but shoot to kill "the man in the suit". That order to kill the man in the suit, whose photo has been circulated, extends to all criminals in the city. That is why the Machine dispenses as its next several sets of numbers all previous aliases of one person, namely Reese. This may make Reese more of a liability to Carter in her mission. In helping Carter, all on the team may need their own help from the others as HR goes about trying to stop Carter and anyone who may be helping her. Meanwhile, Finch come across a dilemma of whether to ask for Root's help potentially to save Reese. Written by Huggo

Fast paced, excellent acting, and a departure from canon
23 November 2013 | by aswmboSee all my reviews

Fast paced, excellent acting on the part of all those involved. Kevin Chapman, Taraji Henson, Jim Caviezel, all delivered Emmy worthy performances.

My score would have been a 10 except for one big issue: the morgue scene between Caviezel and Henson seemingly threw out 2 years of canon, as in that one scene the dynamic between three major characters (Reese, Carter, and by inference, Finch) suddenly changed from what had been slowly developing in two previous seasons.

Multiple interviews in which the show-runners had to explain exactly what this pivotal scene *really* meant only verifies that it could have been done better! Or that perhaps had they used the scene as originally scripted by the writers, rather than one improvised by the actors involved, it would have presented a clearer message.

Also telling is that according to these interviews, the show-runners were not that interested in seeing the unscripted take as the moment on the page was to be about an enduring "friendship" between the characters, not romance. But they were evidently convinced by others on the staff not to deny viewers rooting for these two characters to find each other.

IMHO, Nolan & Plageman should have gone with their first instincts.
