I liked the scene where Samaritan activated the civilian assets, though. There was a certain zombie movie vibe to it where these otherwise normal people all suddenly turned hostile.

What I really liked about this was that aside from the two who actually attacked her, everyone else ran away to the other side of the train as soon as Root fought back. Samaritan isn't magically turning people into soldiers or something.

As with every year, my fellow Canadians getting the Maritime airing early please refrain posting spoilers until the east coast airing at 10pm EST concludes.

Please, last week people weren't that good about this. You can do it, I believe in you.

What time did the episode start? My DVR says it started recording at 10pm, but the episode is so far along I can't tell what's happening.

They started it at 9:59 which is pretty messed up for DVR people yeah. I was watching 12 monkeys but I managed to reset my DVR just in time to record an extra couple minutes at the start.

Was that Samaritan at the end, or is The Machine recruiting?

I assume The Machine, since the recruiter used Finch's line from the pilot?

That was Samaritan. It had the Samaritan UI

Anyone who's able to I definitely suggest watching this episode a second time. You catch SO much that's just off writing/continuity wise.

The first big hint for me was that Root has an apartment, 2 eps after we establish that she lives in the subway now.

I plan to

It's cool because it's not really supposed to be a HOLY poo poo WHAT A TWIST episode

You're supposed to figure out generally what's going on, it's just a matter of why

It's so cool, rewatching the episode, and seeing how it gets increasingly more desperate and urgent about trying to convince Shaw to go to the Machine. Things like Harold being dense enough to plug the USB right into something in their base, having an injured Root show up way too fast and tell Shaw to lead the way for no reason, every character insisting constantly that Shaw go to safety right now it's of utmost importance.

Not surprising considering how much they dicked with poi. Elementary was doomed due to Sherlock existence as the far superior show actually worth waiting for and watching. Didn't watch much of elementary as I didn't want yet another police procedural.

Sherlock was a show I enjoyed at the beginning. However it's gotten progressively worse and self absorbed with each season.

Elementary is a way better show

That also explains why "Greer" was so confident she wouldn't escape.

And why the whole episode went by without the machine reporting in that it saw her

Oh my god I don't know if I can handle two back to back episodes tomorrow
