Episode discussion for: 02x21 | Zero Day (May 02, 2013)

This was an interesting episode. It appears that Finch rerouted the call from the machine to Reese's phone booth, but then what did Root hear?

Hope we get some answers by the end of the season, this show is getting better and beter.

I agree. And have I been asleep or is this the first we have learned that Finch is not the humanitarian we thought he was? It appears it was Nathan who wanted to use the machine to save the "not relevant" people, not Harold.

Yeah, I am also wondering if Finch actually wants the machine to survive the virus.

According to the Decima guy, it was Finch who leaked the source code on the laptop in Ordos. Perhaps it was his intention all along to have someone help him destroy the machine or maybe Decima is even one of his many companies. By giving Reese the full administrative access (which Reese will of course pass down to Finch since he has no clue what to do with it), Finch could use that access to destroy the machine from the inside out.

With the machine gone, the Northern Lights project would cease to exist and would give Finch the oppurtunity to get back with Grace, maybe that's what he's after?

After re-watching I actually realized that Nathan was the last person to be shown just before the contingency module was stopped by Finch. Maybe losing Nathan made Finch change his mind after all and want to keep the machine flagging "irrelevant" persons so he didn't have to lose more people that he cares about.

So now I'm thinking it can still go either way in the season's finale. Does Finch save or destroy the machine? We'll know soon

actually there has been a time or to that it was shown that Harold was against helping the "non relevant" in the flashbacks...


this show is getting better and better, and that says a lot since it was freaking awsome from episode 1!!
