I watched and enjoyed "In Extremis" and it raised several issues. One is that The Machine is giving them the information when it is too late to save people, which is an error. Reese did his best to help the doctor get revenge since he knew there was no hope of saving him.
I recall an episode in which we were left to wonder if Reese would kill a rapist in cold blood. There was no doubt in this episode that Reese poisoned the perpetrator the same way the perpetrator poisoned the doctor.
Detective Fusco is finally free of the blackmail HR was holding over him, but they will not give up.

"Zero Day" is a very complex episode. I like seeing the important characters who were in the background playing out their roles in this episode.
Decima Technologies - all the players are aware they are the ones behind the virus that will shut down the machine. When the head of Decima was intercepted by Reese and Shaw, he told them Finch was the one who originally sold the laptop that had the virus on it. I already knew that because Finch's name was on the slip of paper the rogue agent had in her possession.
I don't like the fact that Root forced Harold to go with her to get control of the machine. She said she is not a sociopath, but I disagree.
Harold was such a romantic in 2010. He gave Grace a Jane Austen book, then proposed to her while kneeling on one knee.
When Harold caught his partner using the machine to help non-relevant people in the past, he was upset and erased the part of the program that would send numbers for non-relevant people. So, it was Nathan, not Harold, who originally wanted to help people.
Harold explained what would happen when the virus counted down. It did count down to zero and something very interesting happened. Then the episode ended in what seemed like a cliff hanger, but there is an episode next week that might answer the open issues. I'm not going to say what they are so I don't spoil it.
Fusco was not in this episode. HR set Det. Carter up by making it seem she shot an unarmed individual.

SPOILER < < < < < "Person of Interest": Just what is up with the Machine? Executive producer Jonathan Nolan tells us that's a storyline that will culminate in this week's Season 3 finale, "God Mode." "It's clear the Machine has developed some sort of coping mechanism over how to address Finch 'crippling it,' as Root would say," Nolan says. "It's a big question we're going to answer in the finale." Just don't expect to find out where the Machine is located in this episode, as Nolan and his fellow executive producer Greg Plageman tease the answer to that mystery is going to be saved for future seasons.
