Finch and Root are on a mission to save the Machine, after she gave herself up to Samaritan on her own volition to save Root and more specifically Finch. As Samaritan tries to complete its own mission in destroying the Machine while making what it sees as necessary corrections to the world order, Finch and Root have the difficult task of locating the Machine, who has been silent of late. When Finch and Root do hear from the Machine again, she sends them on a scavenger hunt without them knowing what all the pieces are supposed to accomplish. Finch and Root are without Reese who too has been silent. Finch has another difficult choice to make when he does eventually get an indirect message from Reese. Little do Finch and Root know that there is someone else who is trying to destroy Samaritan, albeit working on a different motive.

Did You Know?


The title refers to God's name, written with the Hebrew characters known as the Tetragrammaton, and appears almost 7,000 times in the Old Testament. In Hebrew it is normal to write only consonants, but because of the Commandment against using God's name in vain, correct pronunciation of the name is lost. Name YHWH is preserved in texts but sometimes has added vowel marks from word Adonai, indicating that instead of YHWH one should read Adonai (Lord). English Bibles usually translate it as "Lord of Hosts," or simply as "Lord." One plausible version of OT God's name might be "Yahweh," although some use "Jehovah" instead; that stems from erroneous reading of YHWH with vowels of Adonai. See more »


When Finch and Root's elevator finally starts moving, a camera shot through the shotgun blast hole shows the arms dealer and the room moving up (ie the elevator is going down). But this would require the outer door to be traveling with the elevator, instead of staying on its floor. We should have instead seen the back of the outer door through the hole. See more »


John Reese: What's our status?
Root: Well, I've got one and a half clips, a metro card and God's either dead or running on double-As.

I don't know what else could have been done better. If this entire series would have been crap(not that it is in any way), this episode single handedly would have made me give this series a 9 star rating. If you have not yet started this series, this episode (and few more like this) are reason enough to start now. Why are you reading this? Go now!!! The epicness(I know its not a word) of this series has only increased season to season, episode to episode. They always find a way to capture you and take you onto a roller coaster rise. You will be "root"ing for the character you once disliked, enjoying top notch sci-fi one moment and biting your teeth in anticipation the next.
