The case this week was entertaining enough, if only for the character of Pierce. It was another case of the week, nothing special there. What made it worthwhile was the promise that they will eventually give us more of Finch's background (especially that concerning Ingram). It's still just a promise, which we've gotten before, but it's also reassurance that they haven't forgotten. Also, Bear's side-plot was wonderful. Way to keep it real, guys.
One question I had arise from this episode, though. Finch knew where Reese was when the towers fell. I should have realized before now that the Machine didn't exist then. How did Finch know? Does the Machine have the ability to go through old feeds? Was Finch already working on some sort of surveillance? Something doesn't quite add up there.
