Finch gets the idea that they should just leave the WASPs to kill each other because there are more deserving people who need their help. But because the Machine doesn't spit out any other numbers, they're stuck with this saving this couple.
Fusco stakes out the wife, and brings a date on his stakeout (and they have excellent chemistry). While staking out the husband, Carter and Reese talk. She admits she'd like to move on, but working and being a single mom is life-consuming. This is episode where she meets her future love interest, by the way (Sterling K. Brown), and it's every bit as disappointing as I thought it would be.
Seriously...Morris Chestnut didn't need a paycheck? Is Larenz Tate not interested in a comeback? No one thought to coax Andre 3000 out of the studio? Really?
Anyways, the crew saves the day by stopping the bad guys and forcing this worthless couple
The Prez is back (finally) and he's not over Liv. Liv's secretiveness about her relationship with the Prez is causing problems in her new relationship with the Sexy Chocolate Senator (who's charming as hell).
David Rosen wants Abby the Red to take him back. He's blowing up her cell phone like a lovesick puppy and it's heart-wrenching.
Cyrus's husband James is proving to be an effective and thorough journalist. What took a loooooong time for Abby and David to come across about the voting machines took him half an episode to sniff out. And yes...they rigged that election. They rigged the hell out of it and it's scary just to watch.
Quinn and Huck developed an interesting dynamic in this episode. Because Liv's team is charged with keeping a billionaire's bout of crazy from going public, Quinn had an unexpected moment of bad-assery. As she investigates her own abduction which turned her into "Quinn", we see her research and manipulation skills blossoming, along with a ruthlessness which rivals her teammates'.
Harrison the Gladiator finally gets to step forward and run things in Liv's absence, but I wish his scenes were a bit more memorable. Let me clarify that the actor is not the problem; I just think the writers are still trying to find their rhythm with him.
And then...there's Wifey, and the little surprise waiting for her hubby the Prez at the end of the episode.
