Alright, first things first: There is absolutely NO WAY that Root, Shaw, and Harold weren't shredded by that gatlin gun. And how is it that with all the rounds that gatlin gun was firing, not one bullet hits any of the four tires? For that matter, the front of the car was riddled with bullet holes, how was that car even running after that?
I always suspected Harold would close the machine again...I did, however, expect it to be after they had defeated Samaritan. When he closed it in this episode I just shook my head and cringed at Harold's stupidity. It was sheer stupidity. What's the use of a closed system when Samaritan has killed you all?
Then they killed Elias. No doubt about it. Unless you're Highlander you don't survive a bullet to the head. Seeing Elias die really, really pissed me off. He was such a awesome character.
But what really really shocked me, was Harold in the interrogation room, talking to Samaritan. When Harold started talking about the rules, and what not, I started smiling. Was like he's about to use Root's back door to the machine and take the gloves off the machine. But then he told it that he would kill it, and I realized it was Samaritan he was talking to. Then when the machine called, and Harold had it get him out by literally freeing ALL inmates, that's when it hit home. Harold wasn't really worried about what others would do with the machine. Well, perhaps in the beginning he was. The reason he was resisting taking the gloves off the machine now is because he was afraid of what HE would do with it. And given his reaction to Elias being killed in front of him, and seeing Root take what was apparently a fatal gun shot, Harold is extremely pissed off now. Given that, and given how he escaped, I think it's fair to say the gloves on the machine have come off...So, IMO, sh*t's about to hit the fan.
Not really happy with them killing Elias and Root. I know it was unrealistic to expect ALL of them would make it out alive, but still not happy about it. And Shaw was absolutely right...Root has the absolute worst timing for flirting. LOL.
