Wow, Reese in downright scary in this episode. Now we know what he would be like if he hadn't met up with Finch. At least, as Finch told him, he's now saving people.
I liked the backstory on all the regulars....but isn't it funny there wasn't any on Root. Although I guess we really know pretty much all there is to know about her.
Glad that Simmons got his in the end. He had no redeeming qualities. But I thought that the head "baddie" Carter had been getting information from was in prison. Didn't Finch go there to play chess with him? When or how did he get out? Is this finally the end of this HR story? I never did quite get into it or its Russian connection.
I still don't trust Root. She's crazy.
I hope they go back to the machine telling Finch who their next customer: "perpetrator or victim" is and we get back to the original premise of the show.

The episode was a wonderful homage to Carter by the people whose lives she touched and changed.
This was really exciting. There was so much suspense and drama that I could not guess who was going to do the killing or who was going to get killed.
When Finch left Reese so he could attend Carter's funeral, Reese looked very weak. Then the flashback to Reese's "interview" made him look strange and made me think of a grim reaper. Then, I was so sure that he would be the one to kill Quinn.
Shaw is awesome and a good person to have on your side. She is a formidable foe because she does not feel remorse. Did you know she was a doctor? I do not remember that, but the "do no harm" oath was not embraced by her.
I can now see why Shaw did not trust Root. With those two guns, Root reminded me of Summer Glau in Serenity. They are the only two women I know of who can shoot people without actually having a clear view. They gave us an in-depth flashback previously so I agree that we know her history pretty well.
Fusco did his job well also. He should get a promotion or medal for "rescuing" Quinn from the "Russians" and then capturing Simmons. I do not want to rain on his parade, but Quinn needs to die before he implicates Fusco in the HR scandal.
I think Quinn was in protective custody because the Feds thought he was going to give them information on HR. But I think Quinn fully expected his guys to rescue him.
I hope we get back to "saving people" also and I have no idea what that bigger picture is that Root keeps talking about.
Edit: Harold's backstory intrigues me and I understand why he felt responsible for his friend's death. Psychiatrists should not assume they know what people are going through, especially in Harold's case. I think it is very brave of Harold to go into the field when his friends are in trouble.
