Shaw is able to escape from Greer and his men, using a known method for her friends to find her, all the while eluding Greer and Samaritan. When Shaw is reunited with her friends who believe it best not to take her back to the safe "house" or divulge the location of the Machine to her, it is not all a happy reunion. While Reese wants to be careful believing that Samaritan might have turned her, they are all aware that a microchip has been implanted in her skull, the chip probably some method of control over her. Even when Root is able to extract the chip from her skull, Shaw knows that something is still not quite right with her. Finch is able to decipher for what the chip was meant to accomplish. All these items together truly do make Shaw a risk to the team. Written by Huggo

Sarah Shahi, Denise The, and Lucas O'Connor Deliver A Series Classic
16 May 2016 | by awoolforkSee all my reviews

Masterpiece is how you sum up episode 4 of season 5 titled "6741". Yes i saw it early so I'm going to do my best two give little things away without the rich spoils.

This episode truly felt like it was the birth child of If-Then-Else from Season 4. The style of experimental cinematography that went into 6741 was mind altering and truly awesome. The writing by Denise The and Lucas O'Connor proves to be a dynamic powerhouse unlike any other. But when it comes down to it in the end the one that brings this whole episode to life was none other then Sarah Shahi who makes her triumphant return in such a way that makes even her awesome screen debut back in season 2 look small footed. The rare time where Amy was fantastic in an episode and Sarah actually stole the show from the show stopper herself in Amy Acker. This episode in a fair world would be Sarah Shahi's ticket to a best actress Emmy Nomination.

The connection/Dynamic between Root And Shaw is one of the most loved on the show by many but for the detractors who think this was a forced relationship from the very beginning... Watch this episode and the chemistry between two actresses on their A+++++ game and tell me that has no meaning or its forced especially when its a dynamic that's been built up going all the way back to their recurring days in season 2.

Its an episode that has a lot of unique but disturbing images as well and its pretty violent. One of the more bloodier episodes, but no doubt watch this Monday night at 10pm on CBS. From its acting performances, the way it was shot and filmed, the whole presence and theme of the episode was one of an epic and this is easily a top 5 POI episode in the series. The episode was hyped up months before it ever aired and boy we can rest easy because it lived up to it.
