Good discussion of both positive and negative things about the episode...I def could see how Bishop could have missed not knowing the Star Trek/star wars movie reference...my partner is a high tech computer guy who hates to be around computers when he is not working....I happen to know many people who aren't NCIS fans like I am..GASP!! ;) I loved how McGhee was channeling Gibbs..it was like watching an inside joke as you had to KNOW Gibbs to get the humor of it..some of my family members could not understand why I LOL when tim said a new rule.
This episode was a heart-pounder, wasn't it? I was almost certain Root was going to die - she seemed that aware and okay with the notion. In most shows, when a character does ths, they do eventually end up dead. So it was a relief that she made it through with only a non-lethal bullet wound (though I could have sworn she was hit twice). Harold's chilling explanation of The Machine's workings and logic was real and it effectively negated Root's romantic stance - that The Machine cares and is trying to save them. They are all, at the end of the day, mere dots and pawns, meant to advance The Machine's goals. Root is right: the only real difference between The Machine and Samaritan is Harold himself. Man, what a great show! It gets you thinking.
Fitz showed us that he is truly Big Jerry's son. Poor Olivia. She realized too late how much she loves Jake.
What about their marriage? They're not "really" married, so how are they going to get "divorced"? Are they just going to take off their rings and be like "Yeah, we're divorced now"?
So Kai is a member of the gemini coven! Does that mean trouble for live and luke? At first I thought Kai could be related to them but that may not be the case! I really like these twin witches and that means more tv screen for them, I just hope none of them get killed!
I loved that scene where Claire told Luke to pick up the little hoe (so he could be seen as doing some gardening) and he walked over and grabbed Haley. I'm telling you - the writers on this series are amazing.
To quote Bonnie, though not aimed an anyone in particular, "Bitch, please" indeed (best line in the episode, BTW). Any resemblance between the legal proceedings on this show and legal proceedings in the real world are pure coincidence. We ALL know that Laurel and Connor were conveniently not identified as perpetrators of jury tampering. Glad to see a story line focus on Laurel. While I was starting to like her as one of the most genuine of the group, this episode kinda blew that impression for me. While her motives regarding the case seemed genuine, her actions were not--and then after she enjoys "foreplay" with Frank and does a quasi-walk of shame directly to "the main event" with Khan, her "nobility" goes out the window. And now that Frank owes her a favor, she's probably gonna use him to cover her ass. A question I had after this ep's big reveal is....if the nude selfie was taken in the house, how'd it get on Lila's phone? Oh sure...Sam could have taken it and SENT it to Lila....or did Lila take it herself while she was in the house? Hmmmmm....... Oh...and what did Rebecca mean by "They were in on it together?" Who? In on what? As for hot Nate, the writers are just dragging this out for all its worth. A representative of Annalise's firm ruined his career and he wants f*ck all to do with her, but she keeps showing up on his doorstep. You can practically smell the desperation through the screen--sure he's nice to look at, but it's gettin' to be overkill (no pun intended). Lastly, I agree with the other posters...the flash-forwards are getting too repetitive. While we get a new nugget of information during each one, it's not very earth-shattering (Anyone NOT think that Laurel would sleep with Frank?).

A beautiful woman, listening and singing along to an opera? What's not to like about that? I'm with Hank - I'd be putty in her hands too. The fact that Bruce is stepping out and demanding answers seemed very off-putting to me too, at first. Until remembering that the full-adult Bruce is somewhat of a genius. It makes sense that he's always been that, even before his parents were killed. I like the way they're growing his character - we can already see why he has determined to never kill any bad guys, regardless of how odious they might be. At some point though, Alfred's going to have to reign him in. He can't be seen in any way to be a crime fighter and must eventually grow into the public persona playboy we know the adult Bruce to be. He has to eventually fool even Jim Gordon. Overall, the depressing mood of this corrupt city is getting to be burdensome. Gordon is being made to look like he - and maybe his captain - are the only two truly good people in a city and police force full of corruption. It's overwhelming at times and, while it might be true of Gotham's history, it makes it a little hard to watch at times. I can't imagine writing for this series and looking for a way to relieve that mood - it's too well established at this point.
Carl certainly has grown up since the start of the seriesSomething about Gabriel doesn't sit right with me. HOW did this wimp survive all this time WITHOUT screwing other survivors over?I SCREAMED when I saw that Bob's leg had been cut off & was being eaten right in front of him! Talk about a freaking nitemare come true!
I'm looking forward to more of owen and alex..
And amelia shepherd. I think she is a power house.
