      I'll say I like this show.. but its missing something. Maybe each episode is too self contained? It seems like this formula may get old unless they weave in more characters and more back stories.

      I think they will be doing that with the files that were stolen in the 2nd or 3rd episode.

      Yep, when she found Sully dead I knew we were headed for an ongoing storyline, though you could say they already had one with Carter trying to track Reese.

      I do like that part of the show... funny seeing "Nick" from Cheers back on TV (anyone else old enough to remember that?)

      OK, so what's the lowdown with the series' on going storyline? Was the school teacher Elias? Or the crooked cop who off'ed the Russian mob boss at the end of the episode?

      I don't know... I think he is Elias, but I can't tell you...

      There are a LOT of ongoing story lines in this series, and it's just getting better.

      I believe Elias was the name of the case which had the evidence stolen in the episode where Reese goes undercover in that gang of bank robbers.

      I am pretty sure the teacher was Elias. Reese mentioned how Elias learned about his enemies through their own children.


      I am really liking this show. Hopefully they do not kill it for no good reason like they did with Jericho, yes CBS I am still bitter.

      The teacher calling himself Charlie (Keith Mars) was Elias, who killed Sully (Nick Tortelli) last ep; the cop was one of his henchmen.

      That was the best episode to date! The music at the end was perfect for the scene.

      Was the last one the season finale?? We caught up this weekend... the last two episodes were *really* good... maybe the best couple hours of TV I watched this year. If it was the finale.. thats a helluva cliffhanger for next year. Hopefully it gets picked up.

      The show definitely got better as the season progressed. I'm glad they decided to have an over arching storyline instead of a "person of the week" format implemented over the first few episodes.

      It's just the holiday hiatus - hardly anyone shows new episodes until after New Year's, some try to hold out for February sweeps. Actually, I'd worry a bit about a network show running new eps right now, as that has a whiff of "burn-off." Grimm and Once Upon a Time come to mind...

      Yep, and I've got some misgivings. They brought back the political fixer to help with a case, which was cool, but they seem to be setting up a rival for Finch in a "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" mode (amoral goth genius hacker chick). Since I loathe Lisbeth Salander, that direction doesn't work for me.

      For a moment, I thought that fixer chick was also the rival hacker.

      I thought the same thing; is it not? I bet it is the woman Reese was in the CIA with.

      Just because she's a sophisticated hacker chick, what makes you think that there's any resemblance beyond that to Lisbeth?

      Black nail polish when they showed her typing, and in one of the rear shots of her on the phone to the assassin I thought I glimpsed a neck tattoo. And it's a tv show type thing to do - emulate a character or plot line from pop culture, especially movies. Heck, look at the main plot of the episode itself - I was actually frustrated with Reese when Finch had to explain that the NOTW (Number of the Week) was being framed. Did he not see "Eagle Eye" with Shia LeBouf? Read "Point Blank" by Stephen Hunter? Heck, from what they've intimated, Reese use to do those type of jobs himself. Even before I heard the e-mails had been planted, I knew the notwah's first name was Patsy.

      I think the introduction of the rival hacker is just what this show needs. I liked the ending. "...Harold." ...good stuff.
