Reese is getting buried under the paperwork in his undercover identity as Fusco's partner, and Shaw is adjusting to her new undercover identity as a street level criminal. As such, Reese foists off dealing with the latest number to Finch, who still is hesitant to continue such work. Finch decides at least to start the process if only because the number is akin to someone like him. She is college sophomore Claire Mahoney, a seemingly brilliant young woman with an analytical mind. However, her life seems to have fallen off the rails in the past year, ditching her college studies and having recently purchased a firearm. As Finch tails her, he believes that she is involved in some deadly code breaking game/puzzle, the puzzle which always involves the figure of a nautilus.

One of my favorite things about this show that even after a big episode like season 3 finale, they are able to make the next episode much smaller and less broad but keep you just as much interested and if not, more.

Its nice to see the team back even though many of thins have changed, there is still the originality of needing to help a number. This episode was specifically good because my favorite episodes are the ones where finch is the one pursuing the number. the most memorable one that comes to mind is the episode in season 2 where finch explains pi and helps out the student in high school. this episode takes a close second in the finch pursuing episodes. another aspect that was used in this episode which i like a lot is when its more mystery than action. Most memorably being Proteus, the episode in the storm and the identity theft.

When those 2 aspect come together which they do in this episode, i am very happy and i enjoyed this one very much.

P.s. Loved the scene where Fusco gives Reese paperwork. laughed so much.

p.s.s I love the new base of operations.

P.s.s.s The building that has the water tower on it when the show the central park camera view is where i live and i know where they filmed that scene so that was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
