This episode was all about the eyes: Finch's pained, terrified eyes. Reese's crazy eyes. Carter's concerned eyes. Fusco's exasperated eyes. Sam's snake eyes. Root's fake-cheerful, serious crazy eyes. The episode had its plotholes, but despite those, a wonderful story was delivered.
It was over the top in that way that only PoI can pull off, but still subtle enough to keep you coming back for more. I wanted more about Root. I wanted more about the guys in Washington. I wanted more about the Alicia Corwin case. Those are likely the things that this season is going to focus on, though, so I'm okay wanting more. We're bound to get more of Finch's backstory as those stories progress, too. So long as this season isn't strictly case-of-the-week stories.
I'm also hoping they didn't scrap Root from a larger role. It feels almost as though she's been downgraded for being too crazy.
