  • Oh...... my God!!!!

    They need Root to join the team!!!!! I know her personality is very very very out there, but imagine the conflicts that would occur??????? She is so awesome!!!!! I like Zoe, can't stand Carter, and annoyed by Shaw giving her macho act all the time But Root is the most authentic Original character out of this show. And the best part is the delivery of Amy Akers lines!!!! she is so composed and funny when she delivers the lines. Root would be a very valuable asset to the team. Her computer skills are second only to Finch, she is unstable but funny as hell. She can handle a firearm and willing to step into the grey area to eliminate targets.

    The only problem would be for Finch and Reese to reel her in. But I am starting to see signs of the Machine asking Root not to kill. If its one thing that Root will listen to, its The Machine. Her showdown with CIA assassin at the end of the episode was hilarious!! I would have rated this episode a 6 if no for Root's escape scene thus earning it an 8moreless
  • Charlies Angels

    Great episode that saw Carter, Shaw and Zoe working together like Charlies Angels. Also loved Root going terminator at the asylum.
  • Lady Killer

    A little too much Carter involvement in this one. Just don't connect with her character the way some other fans do.

    The ending was unexpected and expected at the same time. Definitely made the episode for me.
  • Just like Terminator 2 :)

    Lady Killer. What a brilliant episode, but really loved the end and the tip of the hat to T2 and the whole nut job proving the psychiatrist wrong thing. Pure genius.

    Really can't wait to see how it all pans out with Root, she could even show Ben Linus a thing or two. Can't see this show running out of steam any time soon. It is opening up to allow itself a number of paths, but without being convoluted or unrealistic. Is just me, or is the acting getting better and better? Not that it needed to, but it is really setting a high bar. Love it.moreless
  • Root Holds It Together

    The Root storyline has been the best part of season 3. It's the only element that's still "true" to the strengths of the series in prior seasons. IMO the "showrunners" should pay some attention to that, since they're down 3 MILLION viewers. They got a new Bear, a much calmer canine than last year's. I suppose they trust Shaw to take up the slack in the testosterone department. Reese has been relegated to waiting on a sidewalk to walk his girlfriend home, fighting with Shaw over who's going to row, row, row the boat (he should have decked her with an oar), and giving out with a couple of cheesy grins during the episode. Perhaps his part has now been confused with Bear's? This show WAS so good. Guess I'll go run a DVD from Season 1 and hope for a return to better days.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sam: The guy went from blue blood to hipster faster than you can say ironic facial hair.
      Finch: I don't understand anything you just said.

    • Sam: Guy's a chameleon. Organized, efficient, sociopathic. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    • Dr. Carmichael: You know, Robin, we're all fallible.
      Root: Well, not all of us. I suppose it's you that needs therapy. It sounds like you have a lot to work on.
      Dr. Carmichael: I can help you, Robin. You suffer from delusions of grandeur, something caused by your underlying condition.
      Root: It's not a condition, it's the future. By the time you figure out what's really happening, I'll have transcended this reality.

    • Carter: Just once, I wish you fellas would call with something that doesn't require firearms.
      Reese: Why? Are you not carrying?
      Carter: I know better than to show up unprepared.

    • Sam: So... how long have you and Zoe been... special friends?
      Reese: Well, I haven't really counted the days, Shaw. What about you? Any big dates?
      Sam: Been too busy saving the world from bad guys. Besides, relationships are for amateurs. Guys these days have so many... emotions. They cry, they wanna be held. I just don't know what do with them.
      Reese: So... you're a nun?
      Sam: I'm a pragmatist, John. I go out, have a fun night or three, and then, uh, I move on. No muss, no fuss.
