Yesterday's episode was pretty nerve-racking. I am, for once, glad that Covers Always Lie
. This was definitely Mr. Finch's episode.
It started out with a POI named Mr. Peck, who seemed to be an employee of a financial company. Reese discovers, with some investigating, that Peck is actually an employee of the NSA
. The next you know, Peck's life ends up being taken apart piece by piece. It gets to the point that someone in Washington, D.C. actually sends a 3-man team of black ops assassins to kill Peck. Why? Because Peck had come across some strange things in reports and asked too many questions. That might sound disproportionate, until you find out that Peck had discovered the existence of Finch's machine, which is at least a state secret and something he's not supposed to know about. It Got Worse when he actually figures out what he found, and Fridge Horror hits him like a truck
Well, at least that plotline was resolved without too
much trouble, and without having to kill Peck! I mean, can you imagine what would happen if the entire public found out what he did? It would be Paranoia Fuel
and panic everywhere!
Do you think "Sibilance" would qualify as Arc Words
? I mean, I know it refers to a hissing sound, but that doesn't seem to help in understanding the significance behind it!
Reese manages to find out that Finch had a girlfriend for 4 years, but he broke it off due to an "accident" of some kind
So, 7 or 8 people in the world know about the Machine? Talk about a small group! Okay, so Harold Finch and John Reese know about it. Nathan Ingram knew about it, but he's dead now...I think. Alicia Corwin knows about it, and she seemed to be pretty active in this episode, considering that she overheard Finch say that he built the Machine, which she evidently did not know. I wonder what will happen from that
? The bigwig from Washington knows about it. The person in charge of the Witness Protection Program knows about it
. I think one or two people have not been identified as being in on it. Do you think the homeless lady from the episode "Risk" is in on it?
The season finale is coming up, and I, for one, am really interested in seeing what happens there! From the look of things, Fusco and Carter might end up having a discussion.
