Every week it seems that this show raises the bar beyond where I imagined it could go! I love the addition of Shaw and Root, though I would still prefer them as semi-regulars who make an occasional appearance, as is the case with Paige Turco as Zoe. Anytime Zoe makes an appearance it feels like an extra serving of dessert after a scrumptious meal.
But, having said that, I must confess that I absolutely love seeing Root! She's a and collected badass who enriches every scene she's in.
I'm also loving the plot with Carter and HR. (What does the "HR" stand for????). I sense a juicy season finale surrounding that story line.
I don't see Root being locked away in a book room for any indefinite period of time. If she can escape an asylum I don't imagine she'll be hampered by Finch's personal prison for any longer than it challenges the imaginations of the writers. She'll be back soon.
But, however it all plays out, I'll be tuning in every week with bated breath!
