The gangland war between Dominic/The Brotherhood and Elias is ramping up, with four of the Brotherhood found murdered without the Machine foreseeing that happening. The next numbers the Machine does dispense are for Elias and Dominic themselves. Reese and Fusco take the lead on this issue, which includes finding out why the Machine didn't see the deaths happening. But the more important issue is how Dominic and Elias' seeming battle will emerge from the other side, i.e. if either will still be standing. Meanwhile, Root receives a message implying that Shaw is still alive. Despite both she and Finch realizing that it may be a trap, they still pursue the lead on the scant possibility that she still is alive and needs their help. Finch is a reluctant participant, but feels he has to follow Root, who takes some extraordinary measures to prove her determination in finding Shaw. In the end, they may have to make some tough decisions in seeing which is the higher priority between Shaw's life... Written by Huggo

Godlike Penultimate Episode!
29 April 2015 | by awoolforkSee all my reviews

You know a show is at the point of wow factor when you get an episode of this caliber and it isn't even the season finale. So much happens through out this episode and it shows that these writers are so great to be able to balance three different story lines going on within one big packed episode and none of them feel rushed... not many can do that. Between Dominic capturing Elias/John/Fusco or Root and Harold trying to save the machine's life while root finds hope the woman she loves may actually be alive after all and almost comes close to reaching her, On top of that control finally seeing the bigger picture and trying to do what she needs to do to stop a fatal event from happening with Samaritan. Its too much to explain but when we talk about Penultimate episodes in the series, this was better then Beta in season 3 last year without question. POI at its best!
