- Seems to be justified as of "AMA": Shaw appears to treat Lindy like another member of her precinct, giving her instructions to follow up on a lead while Yeager and Tommy go to question an alleged mugging victim. In addition, her case file and a flashback implies that Shaw wanted to recruit Lindy without her necessarily knowing she would be working for the police, in an operation to take down Bubonic, the Black Hat hacker.
- Also, if you listen closely to Shaw and Lindy's conversation right before George sets off the alarms, Shaw talks about 'being impressed with the work you've been doing for us' and 'making your position here more official'. Sound like the prelude to a job offer to anyone else?
While we see Ben and Lindy's first meeting via flashback, we don't know (yet) how Tommy and Lindy met. The first time we see Tommy in the pilot, he certainly isn't friendly to Lindy - but at the same time, there's none of the heavy disapproval or contempt you'd expect for an almost-criminal who broke his best friend's heart, or even that a hacker would normally get from a cyber-cop. It's implied that Ben deliberately introduced himself to Lindy as part of an investigation (probably the Bubonic Plague case-if you listen to the dialogue between Lindy and Bubonic in ep 5, it's clear that he was the one who made the job offer that got Lindy put on probation) but then fell in love with her; at the very least, Ben turned her in after they started dating. If it's the former, who's to say that Tommy wasn't with his partner that night? It could simply have been a matter of Ben seeing her first.
- As it turns out, a flashback sequence in "AMA" indeed shows Ben making initial contact with Lindy before Tommy was supposed to, and the two men having an argument afterwards.
- Tessa is definitely living the 'you only live once' theme to the hilt, and in "AMA" her behaviour is downright dangerous - she's already been told that TFK targets the people around Lindy, and she invites a total stranger into their apartment? (personally, I would have thrown her ass out onto the street for endangering me and my room-mate) Now at the end of AMA, her Flirtual profile shows her wearing Lindy's jacket, and dating Lindy's matches... and for her date with TFK, she's wearing a distinctive article of Lindy's clothing as well. This goes beyond thrill-seeking to downright courting death. Given that Sophia's memories of her seem to be of a thoughtful, timid, sort of person, some kind of terminal illness (maybe the fight with her parents was about her deciding not to seek treatment?) would make a lot more sense than risk-taking to the point of stupidity.
- Very confirmed. She reveals she has brain cancer, and begs TFK to kill her instead of Sophia.
- In "AMA", TFK deliberately sets out to destroy Lindy's trust in the CCU - and does a very good job. Given that the bracelet he sent Lindy has not only the identifier of her case file and the words we'll find her on it, it seems pretty clear that he's setting himself up as Lindy's only option for actually finding her sister. Not to mention, it's fairly likely that Sara's pic on Babylon isn't going to lead anywhere, given how old it it (perhaps because TFK just stole it from Sara's boyfriend at the time? she was never on Babylon in the first place?). Not only did Lindy accept TFK's help in the climax of "ICU"; but in the "AMA" flashback when Lindy gets the job offer from Bubonic, her attitude switches from 'I'll never work for someone like you' to 'okay, I'll do it' like a switch, as soon as Bubonic offers her info about her sister. So in the finale, Lindy will have to weigh her obsession with finding her sister against the dozen or so lives TFK has taken, including Ben.
- mostly busted. TFK uses the prospect of finding out whether Sara is buried on Hart's Island (NYC's Potter's Field) to lure her away from all her potential protectors, and out of contact with anyone who could reveal his double identity to her.
- Partly confirmed. Shaw does reveal that she has misappropriated police resources to track down her niece. Thus, it is not out of the bounds of probability that she has a similar attitude about tracking down Bubonic.
- maybe the reason Shaw went after Bubonic so hard is she thought Bubonic had some kind of connection or intel on the people who kidnapped and enslaved her niece? Catherine does say that the perps were never found - by the time Mary led anyone back to the animal shelter, it was empty of all evidence except for the captured girls themselves.
