Last we saw of Finch, he was being taken at gunpoint to places unknown by the murderous Root. Will Reese be able to rescue Finch in the season premiere? And will we discover why Root wants the Machine? Read on for some great spoilers for the show’s return on September 27.
Despite a valiant effort on Reese’s part, Reese and Finch’s reunion won’t come in the season premiere. In fact, most of Finch’s scenes take place in flashbacks, as we see how he trained the Machine to work. (Fun fact: The machine’s excellent at blackjack!) What we do see of Finch in present day is a pretty certain fear of Root, who both reveals why she wants the Machine and proves exactly how ruthless she will be in order to get it.
