    I can't wait for the Shaw/Root cat 'n mouse.Root already gets Reese. Maybe it will take Shaw to trip her up.

    It makes no sense that Root should be a factor. I can't believe that Reese, Finch, and Shaw let her go at the end of the last episode. She's free to go when her injury is healed? What?!

    Finch knows wwaaaaayyyyy more than we all do. Root will be a frenemy. I think she now sees how huge this is. Will still have her moments...it will take the other three to keep her reeled in. I don't see her joining...but I do think Finch knows she is about the machine...

    Again though, they let her go free? She abused Finch, tortured Shaw, and killed people. She must be in some kind of custody.

    Reese or Finch, perhaps through Carter. I can't imagine them letting this killer roam around free, even if Finch does have some respect for her intelligence.

    It looked to me like Root was in some kind of mental ward when that phone rang.

    Yes, she was basically visiting the Isle of Catatonia until the Machine called her.

    My impression is that the Machine sees her as an ally, and perhaps as part of its self-protective intelligence it is able to recognize who has its interests in mind.

    This. If you notice while watching the shows the machine has color themes for people it's monitoring. Most people are white, friends are yellow, enemies are red. I can't recall what color Root started the finale in, but by the end I noticed she turned to Yellow.

    One thing I did notice and can't figure out, is Shaw started the finale BLUE, then turned yellow. No idea what Blue stands for.

    And yes, I believe Root was institutionalized at the end.

    (edit)

    Found some images online.

    In this image, Reese is yellow, Shaw is blue:

    Root tagged yellow:

    My thinking (I noticed the colour thing, too) is that blue is for "agent."

    By the way, I can't recall where I saw it (yeah, not very helpful), but I read an official comment about the colour coding for the machine. Blue is indeed for "agent."

    I was not thrilled with the Amy Acker news, but I'm willing to give the creatives behind the show a chance to see what they can make of that character.

    My guess is that her story weaves in and out of the main story in a manner that doesn't always tie directly into Reese and Finch's story.The cast expansion for the upcoming season seems to make it clear that the show is becoming the story of the Machine, rather than the story of Reese and Finch. I'm fine with that, as long as Reese and Finch aren't lost in the shuffle. Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson are too good to waste.
