Team Machine is back into the groove in the second episode of season four. Of course there’s still a little bit of tension since they’ve not all officially agreed to return to taking numbers, but they’re trying. It starts as every episode does: with a number. This time, the number is coming from Reese who essentially tricks Finch into taking the case. Sitting at a diner, waiting for Reese, Finch gets a first look at Claire Mahoney, a brilliant mathematics major. According to Reese, even though she’s an upstanding and diligent student, she’s recently been engaging in criminal activity. The Machine wants them to track her down, and though reluctant at first, Finch jumps into the task at hand.
Reese remains tied up in paperwork as Fusco piles it on him, a small bit of payback for all the crap he’s been put through no doubt.
A couple of days ago, Ubisoft announced a new DLC Pass for Assassin’s Creed Unity that includes a new 2.5D game set in China called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China.
Unity‘s season pass is $30, including new missions, weapons, gear, skills, and Chronicles: China.
The new missions detail Arno exploring the Paris underground (I can assume that they are talking about the Paris Catacombs) to find out about the mysteries of Saint Denis. This mission set includes weapons like the Guillotine Gun along with all that other jazz. This expansion is titled “The Dead Kings”, and will include other side missions along with the new main mission.
We pick back up with Citizen Z, who is frantically trying to get in touch with the California lab that Murphy and the rest of the gang are headed towards. Unfortunately, they’ve been breached by zombies and his choices are to save the people, but lose all the data on the vaccine… which he ultimately appears to do. After he fries the data, Citizen Z can’t get in touch with Mount Wilson or Delta Xray Delta and is starting to lose it when he notices a dog sled outside the facility.
This Thursday, we will return back to sixteenth century France with Reign. Last season we followed Mary, Queen of Scots and her ladies-in-waiting to the French court under King Henry II for Mary’s marriage to the Dauphin, Prince Francis. In true CW tradition, the season was jammed packed action from supernatural beings in the forest to visions of death to royal sex scandals. It’s a lot to take in, so let’s review what happened last season before the season two premiere.
AMY REEDER DESIGNS ANTI-HARASSMENT POSTERS FOR NEW YORK COMIC-CON
Amy Reeder, artist of Rocket Girl from Image, announced on her blog this week that she’d been asked by the organizers of New York Comic-Con to design some posters letting people know that harassment simply won’t be tolerated.
The result is some really neatly designed imagery that will hopefully grab people’s attention and help them understand that cosplayers should always be treated with respect and consideration.
Man, if you compared this episode to where we were two episodes in last season, there’s no contest for how far and away the show has come.
(Yeah, I gave that episode a four star review initially too, but I was running on a new show high. Fight me.)
The episode opens right where the first episode left off, with Lance Hunter struggling to get out of the car after being the only one to survive an intense accident caused by Creel. May finds him and offers to get him out, but he refuses since Creel is getting away. May heads off on her motorcycle to capture Creel while Hunter is captured by Talbot’s people. Coulson warns May about being seen in civilian areas, even though she has a clear shot to Creel. He orders her to stand down, which May follows, though you can see the grit in her teeth as she does.

This week’s episode is much more believable because that hooking up an ethernet cable to a flying plane while driving a Ferrari bogus was just…too much. This time they focus on biohacking and genetic engineering. I think it’s safe to say that all these episodes will be going at a fast pace because there is just too much stuff happening to cram into a 40 minute episode. Single Point of Failure is no exception, it goes and goes. Even though the pace was fast, it didn’t feel rushed. That’s what I like about the show because it doesn’t linger and become slow. You’re always thinking, geniuses are always solving problems (which becomes a center point for Walter this week).
