I want a "Plan B" bag of my own...

I finally got to see the "Plan B" bag. Ahahahahaha. Though in a way, quintessential Reese.

And boy, at the end of episode 14 the machine turning both Reese's and Fusco's squares red? Gave me chills. At least the action it choose was just "monitor" for now. But I immediately flashed back to Ingram making a crack about the machine and Finch shushing him, telling him the machine could hear him. We all know how that ended.

Right now the machine might protect Harold but at some point it will inevitably turn against him, too. Likely because HE turns against IT when it keeps killing off (or attempting to kill) his friends.

Also, boy, who is Finch really? It's ironic that we have a show where we don't know the actual names of EITHER main characters. Yet at least you have a bit of a clearer picture of Reese before he became a CIA hitman. With Finch/Wren/?, the one thing I genuinely believed is the story he told Carter about his brothers tossing him into the deep end of the pool to teach him to swim.

One thing I find incredibly funny right now is Fusco and Carter trying to outsneak each other as Reese's secret contacts. Like, Carter totally unsuspiciously walks off to talk to Reese on the phone and and he has to put her on hold because Fusco - who is watching Carter's antics from across the office - is calling in to report Carter behaving suspiciously. Bwahahaha. Finch has a point on that possibly not being the best solution.

The Plan B bag had a tag that said "Plan B". I only need to think of that and I'm starting to laugh again.

The thing about Finch: What exactly happened to him that had him change his name and complete existence in his early 20s? I can't for the sake of me figure this out, and the only thing I can think of is a) he is the son of a long line of criminals and had to vanish to get rid of them, or b) he is a time traveler and he wasn't joking about breaking the time-space-continuum. Which would be kind of awesome. heh.

Yeah, that cracked me up, too. In all caps, even.

I'm not sure if the show would go so far into mystery territory as with the second option but I'm intrigued to find out either way.

I've been thinking that they could totally turn the show into The Terminator with the machine being skynet and all. I'm not sure if there ever before was a show that switched subjects half-way through. I think it would be interesting to watch that.

I checked out the show creator's former credits and he does come from a more mystery/sci-fi-ish background so maybe. But it would probably be considered too big a risk in today's TV landscape. Not to mention for a CBS show, all I know from them is procedurals and sitcoms.

Aaaand, I'm not caught up till ep 18 so only one more to go than I can watch real-time. I'm now scared for Fusco because I have the sneaking suspicion he'll be killed off in a big sacrifical way. They are commenting a lot on "second chances" and all that - and btw, forcing Fusco back into HR was mean, pragmatic but mean as he had really been trying - and there is some anvillious (to me) dialogue as if he isn't long for this world. Sigh.

Also, for all its simplicity, the scene where Reese was locked in the freezer with the baby was one of the most suspenseful scenes I've recently seen. Awww.

I've been scared for Fusco since they brought Carter into their little group. If you think about it, they don't really need Fusco anymore, and it would be easy to just kill him off.

I'd rather loose Carter than Fusco to be honest. I'm still hoping the actress is going to decide she wants out of her contract to make more movies...

That was an awesome scene. As was the trailer for the episode that began with "Mr. Reese and Mr. Finch are proud to announce..." heh.

Just for the end of that episode, though. They are yellow again now, or I believe Fusco's is white and John's is its normally yellow colour (as is Finch's).

Reese and Finch are always yellow. I believe that everybody who knows about the machine is yellow all the time.

There was this one scene with Ingram, Finch and two CIA (?) agents. The moment they found out about the machine both turned yellow as far as I remember (one of them was the woman who was hiding in that off-the-grid-town who talked to Ingram's son).

I think Ingram only turned red the moment he mentioned how dangerous the machine actually is. However, I am not sure if the machine changed his status because he became a "danger" to the machine or because the machine considered him at risk because the CIA wouldn't like it if Ingram thought about turning off the machine.

Same in regards to Fusco and Reese. Did they turn red because they are a danger to the machine/Finch, or because by asking questions about Finch they in danger from the people who were after Finch before he faked his death?
