Main Discussion - S5 E7 - QSO

Don't forget that tonight, there are TWO back-to-back episodes. First up, at 9 PM Eastern, is QSO.  Revolutionary War reenactors and alien conspiracy theorists and Samaritan agents - Oh My!  Let us know what you think of the episode here and in the Chat Room.

Gotta chew on that one for a while.  It served a purpose connecting the story arc, but I feel like I missed something.

Sooooo, who found/saved Fusco?  I missed the first couple of minutes and saw Root visit him in the hospital.

Off the top of my head, it seemed that the difference between Samaritan and The Machine was illustrated again.  The Machine allows free will and Samaritan imposes its will.  I did not understand why Harold was troubled by the number's death, as though The Machine failed?  It provided a chance for the number.  He made a poor choice and acted without thinking.
 
I no longer care about the dramatic tension created by Fusco being kept in the dark.  It is past due to rally the troops and come up with some unified plan to deal with Samaritan.  Finch (and yes, I like Finch) is being too arrogant and possibly Samaritan-like by not providing information to allow team members to make their own choices.  His fellow team members are not stupid.  It is insane to keep doing the same thing over and over again and anticipate a different outcome.  And Root was the one committed?
 
Just my initial reaction before I sleep on it.

@ T'brey:  I agree. Harold's secretive nature always made sense in prior seasons, given the context of his TOP SECRET super-classified machine, but now he's borderline paranoid obsessive. I'm losing respect for the man who first drew me into this series. Hopefully things will work out. I think he's still expecting the Machine to emerge from her faraday cage "cocoon" with the cloned Samaritan code, untouchable, above the fray, as wise as a surrogate (judge). That butterfly poem by Dickinson keeps coming back to me.
 
But he's losing Fusco from his wee army. Down to only three! And he's hurting Fusco, a friend, as he did to Nathan. Sad. Disappointing. He's also offensive to Machine. Casting aspersions on her honor, saying she (it) lied to them, all for letting dead Max exercise free will.
 
But great episode!
Shaw!! Four alarm fire!!

looks like they left us to assume he crawled out on his own and got ambulanced.

When Superman or Batman get into real trouble, they call and ask for Fusco.

I thoroughly enjoyed both episodes, but Finch is becoming intolerably secretive. He was my favorite character, but not so much anymore. Still, I try to understand his POV.

I don't know what else Reese and Root could have done to save the number. They warned him and he chose to ignore it. Watching Finch reminded me of his completely different attitude towards Kahn's dilemma in Search and Destroy.
