@Amanda I don't know if Carter and Reese have romantic tension, not to me anyways. There is a flirtiness and fun banter that they have. Unlike others I won't tell you you're imagining something just because you have a different perspective, and I'm sorry that others say as much. I have noticed the distance between Carter and John since the prison break. I don't like it either because they have such a fun relationship to me. I like seeing them interact. But there has been an overall distance between the cops and the vigilantes and I kinda hate it. It's like two different shows sometimes with Fusco and Carter in one part and Finch and Reese in another.I know I'm in the minority but Carter and Fusco are just and integral and intriguing to me as the boys. I have that there is a reason for that, but I miss those interactions. I'm typically indifferent with ships. I wouldn't hate Carter and Reese if done right. Just like I don't mind Zoe and John as long as it's subtle.

Pretty good episode. Not your usual top notch episode, but obviously they are building for the final 2 episodes.

But anyone who has the show taped, I need your help. This is probably crazy, as I have no clue how he could be alive.. but I think I saw Cal Beecher. In one of the last scenes where they are digging up where the body is supposed to be. About 10 seconds before they look into the whole, Fusco and Stills are talking, I swear you can see Cal walk around behind them. But in a POI way, of letting you see a glimpse of him but never actually fully seeing him.

I thought I was crazy at first, but when Carter put the folder on Cal on Fusco's desk, I think somethings up.

Reese and Carter are not hooking up. They are like family. Reese and Zoey are a quiet couple. I love Reese and Zoey together but they don't over do it. The writers leave it to the viewers to wonder about them. I enjoyed that the show was on Fusco this week. I feel he is a guy that got in over his head and is trying to be a good guy for his son. He wants out but he will be labeled as a bad cop and he doesn't want to be remembered that way by his son. I loved it when Carter walked out with Baer and his muddy paw prints. I see Root will be back next week along with badass girl that I can't think of her name right now. I think POI will have a great season finally!

Oh no, NO romantic hook ups. I agree with the other postings go watch Grey Anatomy for your love fixes. My favorite scene is Bears muddy paws with Carter....

I think the reason the writers haven't had Carter and Reese talk since Dead Reckoning is two-fold: the stories haven't needed/allowed it, they (the writers) are sending a message loud and clear -- WE ARE NOT A ROMANTIC SHOW! This is character/story arc driven. Want romance? Watch Grey's!

No, no, no clichés on PoI of the male and female leads hooking up. Want that? Watch Castle, or Bones (where apparently everyone is hooked up).

There was (thankfully!) no evidence of romantic tension anywhere in the phone conversation of Reese and Carter. Anyone who thinks there is, is imagining it.

this show is not about political correctness, it is about redemption, it has been so since the pilot.
people are the sum of their acts, not just the sum of their mistakes.

in this episode, fusco went to hell and back. he is not yet aware that carter judges him on all his acts, not just his past mistakes. for a second in oyster bay, i feared despair would get the better of him…

bear : jij bent mijn held !

and if you really want to hitch the "poorly socialized guard dog", zoe is way more fun.

The overt political correctness of this show is ridiculous, with the writers white-washing the person of interests' actions by defending them by having them give excuses for their behavior all the time, but trying to make it sound as though they're not.

For example, in this episode, even though the doctor's daughter mentioned that he'd cheated on her mother, Finch said he was a "good man." So, what is a person called who hasn't cheated on thier spouse, then?

Oh for the love of god... HELL no. The male lead and female lead of a tv show do not always need to be banging each other, goddamn it.

Nooo! Please, no couples! Please! This is not Grey's Anatomy, for a reason.

Good review it was great to see Fusco have an episode focused on him because for most of the second season he didn't have much to do.

I also would like to know people's opinion about Reese and Carter what is going on here? I notice, nobody is talking about the fact Reese and Carter have not met face to face since the whole Donnelly/Stanton episode. Isn't that odd? I also think in tonight's episode there is some romantic tension between Carter and Reese. Just the way Carter and Reese talk to each other. I hope the writers make them a couple.
