Carter is dealing with internal affairs about a possible wrongful shooting on her part which resulted in a fatality. During the process, Terney shows his true colors to her. She has to figure out how to get herself out of her predicament, as well as prevent HR from carrying out its grand plan, even if it means helping the enemy. Meanwhile, the machine has rebooted itself, and has provided Root with 24 hour unfettered access to what it sees. The one thing it will not tell her is where the machine is located, which is her ultimate goal so that she can "set it free". She seemingly has Finch assisting her. Although she knows that Reese is following her, she is unaware that Finch also maneuvered the machine in providing Reese, and by association his current sidekick Shaw, who he tells from where the information is coming, that same unfettered 24 hour access. Beyond the location of the machine, what Reese also wants to know but which the machine will also not divulge is Finch's whereabouts....
Did You Know?
When Reese and Shaw save the man from the shipping container, they leave the laptop intact on their way out despite knowing the police will be there shortly. As the men who were holding the man hostage were recording when they got there, this means Reese and Shaw left evidence for the police that they were there, potentially compromising their anonymity, which they're usually more careful to preserve in such situations.

Carter, I've been worried. You okay?
I've been better. But, look, that can wait. I think HR and Yogorov's crew are gonna take out Elias tonight.
Elias tried to kill you, Joss. He kidnapped your son. His well-being isn't exactly a priority for me.
His lieutenant was gunned down this morning. The first thing Elias did was get his bodyguards paroled to watch his man in the hospital. At least he's loyal.
