Storyline

Special Agent Donnelly has Reese, along with three other men, in seventy-two hour custody on Riker's Island. With Finch's help, Carter is in unofficial charge of helping Reese get out of custody without disclosing to Donnelly that Reese is indeed the "man in the suit" that Donnelly considers the most dangerous man on the loose. Although Carter has a plan to do so, she may find that tenacious Donnelly may not let Reese and the other three go so easily if he has not yet found out which one is the man in the suit. Meanwhile, Finch, largely with Fusco's help, is handling their next number, that of Brooklyn high school student Caleb Phipps. Caleb is an average student and comes from a poor family, living alone with his single alcoholic mother, whose drinking problem may stem from the grief over the death of Caleb's older brother, Ryan, two years earlier. Ryan, who was with Caleb at the time and who witnessed the incident, was pushed into the path of a subway train, although official ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Harold Finch: Pi. Can any of you tell me what it means?
[There's no response from the class]
Harold Finch: I'll settle for an intelligent question here.
Lily Williams: My friend has a question, Mr. Swift. "What is any of this good for, and when would we ever use it?"
Harold Finch: Let me show you. Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, and this is just the beginning; it keeps on going, forever, without ever repeating. Which means that contained within this string of decimals, is every single other number. Your birthdate, ...

A Hollywood "inside joke" that actually works...
6 August 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Its the second season of a hit series that is just overflowing with talent at both ends of the camera and out of nowhere the producers pitch the viewer an episode ... without the star...? I would like to be able to tell you that I did hours of research to find the "real" story -- something like Jim was ill, Jim had family issues, Jim was in contract negotiations ... but the fact is that IMDb doesn't pay me enough for that (doesn't pay me at all in fact) so all I can say is that, if you had a database of 100,000 TV episodes, you would be hard-pressed to find many (if any) where the star is offscreeen for 98% of the story.

And still drawing a paycheck.

Yet here we are.

Bottom line, it worked, it is a testament to the production team here that they were able to deliver an effective and suspenseful episode, arguably as good as any in the series, using only the supporting cast.

A Hollywood "inside joke" ... that worked!
