Looking forward to tomorrow (Tuesday) night. Way back in 1970 there was a movie called "Colossus: The Forbin Project" and it starred Eric Braeden, more well known these days for his work on "The Young and the Restless."

In that movie a supercomputer with artificial intelligence connects with its Soviet counterpart and plans on taking control of the world.

Back to the POI storyline. Did Harold's friend Arthur have time to build the same safeguards into Samaritan? Will The Machine co-opt Samaritan, and use Samaritan's code to avoid its daily "death"?

How powerful will The Machine become? Will it end up as a "Colossus", deciding to control the lives of imperfect humans?

That movie is now on a mental to-watch list I'm maintaining.

If the Machine finds Samaritan amenable to an alliance, I think they'll enter one to prevent humans from using them to dominate the world, in a vein similar to the one atomic scientists on both sides of the Cold War followed when they installed safeguards to ensure that ICBMs would never fly [properly]. And no, it's probably not suffering from "amnesia" anymore.

However, subversion of Samaritan by the Machine would be a very dangerous option. Decima probably knows about Harold's virus-in-a-virus stunt by now and may be planning some form of turnabout in response.

What was that horrible bloody song playing during the first few minutes of S3 E10?? Good grief, I wanted to shove a sharp stick in my ears!

I think Root was wrong in believing that John was not Finch's first Man in the Suit. I think that Harold's expression comes from the realization that his old friend, Nathan, was the first Man in the Suit. Harold was in a wheelchair, still recovering from his injuries when he first saw Reese, months before John was arrested for the fight in the NY subway system.

Root was wrong to imply that Harold hired Nathan and then abandoned him, or that there was anyone in the chronology between Nathan and John. I took it that she was simply trying to send Harold on a guilt trip whose destination involved setting her free to work. You got to admit, she's still compelling for a fake psychologist.

It sounds more like Red Reddington is using Control's idea, not Finch's. ISA is the group that assassinates first and asks questions later.

Now if Control's name appears on Red Reddington's list, then she finds out about and sends Hersh after Red's daughter, whose number the Machine ends up sending to Reese and co...THAT would make for an interesting pair of crossover episodes.

I agree that John and Joss getting together would damage the show and overusing Shaw would as well but so far they haven't overused much.

I'm sick of Shaw already! She wants to be badder than Reese. Every time a woman is added to a cast on a good show, they want to be "The Man." If she remains on this once EXCELLENT show, I'll just stop watching, plus Carter is another female who wants to be "The Man." Next they'll have Carter and Reese rolling in the hay tpgether. Another VERY good show intent on going to hell. There, unfortunately, are very little worth-while TV shows on the air right now, but the few that are good are always messed up before long. Seasons 1 and 2 will most likely be the last of any of their seasons that will be worth watching.
