As the final season of this great series unwinds into its closing chapters, a review of the episodes so far.
I sometimes refer to this great series as a stealth genre series because it is so convincing as a crime drama/action show. That is all it might seem to be to the casual viewer, because there’s so much crime drama, action, and adventure in the stories it tells. However, the real story behind all of that is about an AI, referred to as the Machine, created to sniff out potential crimes and primarily, terrorism, and all the ideas implicit in that premise. It was originally created for the government, but later reassigned by its creator to help save regular people from predators, and catch the predators themselves. Make no mistake, Johnathan Nolan’s surrogate Batman series is actually a genre series that is a cyberpunk delight.
I don’t go into all the things that make this series great in this review except to now say its really done well. The writing, the acting, by the excellent cast, and production quality are all top notch, making this one of the best shows on tv. This is basically a journal of the fifth and final season with a synopsis of each episode along with some comments and impressions it made on me along the way.
Episode 1 “B.S.O.D.” Directed by: Chris Fisher. Written by: Greg Plageman, Tony Camerino
The initial episode of season 5 starts out just as I expected, with lots of gunplay and action, in fact I half expected (hoped) the entire final season to play out in a pedal-to-the-metal fashion, and this episode lives up to that in a lot of ways. It picks up not long after the events of the season four finale, with the team trying to escape the claws of the forces of Samaritan, possibly going out in a blaze of glory.
Although the show does not depict the details of their escape, escape they do, and this episode finds them having split up with Samaritan’s agents hot on their heels. The episode highlights the different stories of how they each deal with the situations they have been forced to deal with, and in doing so, it shows how each character’s abilities define them in the approach they use to escape. Their main goal in this episode is to save the Machine.
Reese, of course, approaches his situation the way he always does, by being a consummate bad-ass, taking out the opposition with his guns, resourcefulness, and will to survive. He reminds us he’s still the baddest man in the suit out there. This surrogate Batman kicks ass up and down New York as he makes his way to rejoin Harold and the others in their attempt to save the Machine, and prevent it from dying. John is almost desperate in his desire to save the AI, it has given him a mission in life, one he is not willing to see come to a close.
The other part of this odd couple, Harold, is shown in a similar situation but lacking Reese’s abilities, he goes with his strengths, and simply uses his wits to outsmart the agents on his tail, switching hats with a sleeping man on the bus to pull the old switcher-roo, and mislead his pursuers.
Root, like John, is using her abilities she has developed over the years to outgun and improvise her way out the dire circumstances she finds herself in, but it is not quite enough to allow her to escape. She no longer has the advantage of being guided by the Machine, and when she finds herself cornered and out of ammo, she is rescued at the last moment by Reese who has managed to track her down an help her escape.
The trio makes their way to their subway hide-out, but once there, they are faced with the problem of decompressing the machine. The special case they have put it in is failing fast, so once again they need to improvise, to find somewhere to put all that data before its too late.
Reese once again proves his value to the team as the man of action, along with his ability to improvise and provide what’s needed. His resourcefulness is highlighted in this episode more than once, proving he is more than a blunt force, but an important part of what makes the team work. This episode makes that abundantly clear.
Meanwhile, Fusco is not part of this mayhem but is outside the loop for much of this episode, the subject of an investigation by internal affairs (and yes, Samaritan is pulling the strings on this puppet show) that is looking into the role Fusco played, and the events surrounding the shooting deaths of Dominic, and Elias. There is still no sign of Shaw or her whereabouts. (article continues after the bump)
Episode 2 “SNAFU” Director: Chris Fisher. Written by: Lucas O’Connor
This episode is very Machine centric, in that it mostly concerns itself with the reawakening of the AI, along with the problems, and glitches, the team encounters after they manage to revive it. The AI is awake again, but not functioning normally, with problems involving facial recognition, and other issues involving its relationship with Harold and the mission that is its purpose.
Reese and Finch go on a brief mission to steal some hardware to serve as the Machine’s “nervous system”. One of the problems reviving it was not having enough space to store all that data in, and this solves the problem.
This episode serves to highlight Harold’s relationship with the AI and vice versa, and also serves to re-establish that relationship going forward. As the episode begins, the Machine actually perceives the team as bad guys. it hides itself for a short while feeling threatened by Harold and Root, that it perceives as trying to shut it down and effectively trying to kill it. It actually takes out a contract on Reese, which he manages to escape, outwitting the female assassin sent to kill him.
The root of the problem is the machine’s perception of the team as a threat to itself, and it is having a problem reconciling all the bad things the team has done in the past with working with them now. (it has video proof of their past deeds, and shows them to Finch during their discourse) It actually tries to imprison Finch and Root in the subway car it lives in, but all ends well when Harold eventually succeeds in convincing the Machine that what the team does is ultimately good, and for the better.
This is a more cerebral episode than the opening segment the final season began with, reminding us , despite all the action. this is an intelligent thought provoking series.
Fusco Makes an appearance, but is still mostly outside the loop. Still no word on Shaw or her whereabouts. (article continues after the bump)
Episode 3,”Truth Be Told” Director: Stephen Surjik. Written by: Erik Mountain
Things are getting more normalized in this episode as the Machine is back to spitting out numbers for the team to deal with. The series is taking its time developing itself at a pace that seems to be in no hurry getting to the epic climactic ending we know it has in store.
For those of us (me included obviously) this is too slow a pace, we are eager to get to the main course, the resolution of the main story arc that is the battle of the two AI’s, and who will survive the fight. Other issues scream for attention also, like what’s in store for Shaw. No doubt in my mind it will involve the epic, clever, and memorable ideas this series is known for, which is why I am so eager to see how it goes down.
Reese’s past comes back to haunt him in this episode, his past with the CIA is highlighted when one of the numbers that comes up turns out to be the brother of a man he killed in the past when on a mission for his former employers. The story reveals what made Reese especially qualified for his former job and features the excellent acting skills of David Keith as CIA agent Biel, Reese’s former supervisor. The episode involves some gunplay and action during its course, and is less cerebral than episode 2 was, but still very enjoyable and interesting as way to further develop its characters.
It ends with the team, minus Shaw, (I have little doubt we will learn of her fate soon) getting together in central park for a picnic. The machine is once again providing cover identities for Root and Finch so they can now leave the shelter of their subway hideout without fear of being discovered by Samaritan or its agents.
Beyond the first episode, the show has all but ignored the presence of Samaritan, and what its up to for the most part. I write this off as a way of making the final confrontation more dramatic when the forces of the evil AI return as a central element of the story. (article continues after the bump)
Episode 4 “6,741” Director: Chris Fisher. Written by: Denise Thé
Shaw’s back baby! Or is she? This episode leads us down the garden path in a dramatic depiction of Shaw’s escape from the forces of Smaritian, and her subsequent reunion with team Machine.
There is a depiction of some hardware being installed in Shaw’s brain stem near her ear, which she attempts to remove herself in the restroom of a store. Later, after she rejoins Root and the others, Root is portrayed trying to remove the chip from her again. Sameen keeps having flashes of disorientation, which turn out be blackouts. The team, while glad to see her are concerned by her erratic behavior, and Sameen herself is concerned also, unsure who, or what, is in control of what she does
There is a very intense and torrid sex scene that takes place between her and Root, during the period the team has her stashed in a safe house, out of caution, before returning to their subway ‘bat cave” hideout, to make sure she is not being used by Greer (John Nolan) and Samaritan, as a way to find the Machine, and eliminate the team once and for all.
Sameen tires of this defensive posture and taking matters into her own hands, decides they should go on the offense for a change. The team sets up a trap for Samaritan’s agents and backtracks their phone signals. This actually works, and invading one of Samaritan’s headquarters they actually manage to capture Greer. They hide out in a church which Harold has discovered is safe ground for them to lie low.
Sameen confronts Greer, and their conversation escalates, during which she begins to have her flashes of disorientation once again. She kills Greer, shoots him in the forehead actually, but her blackouts continue. She goes outside for a walk, and Reese accompanies her, she leads him into an alley where she shoots him in the back. this is witnessed by shadowy figures in the alley we assume are Samaritan’s agents.
Sameen calls the other team members for help. she is joined by Root and confesses she has killed Reese, and plans on killing Root too, but she shoots herself in the head instead.
The show’s creators went out their way to make Shaw look like crap in this episode, even going so far as to use the sort of makeup usually reserved for dead people on tv.
This is when we learn the entire episode has been an illusion, Sameen is still in bed, in a clinic setting run by Samaritan. Such a tease! this episode was successful in fooling me until near the end just before Shaw shot Reese, and I began to suspect something else was going on here. The title of the episode refers to the number of simulations Shaw has been put through. The entire episode was an elaborate hoax, by the show’s creators. A joke on us, the fans. This episode was totally manipulative, using our eagerness to see Shaw back in action to jerk us around, and it worked. Bastards.
I’m not going to elaborate on each actor’s performance in each episode. They all do a great job in every one, and you’ll just have to trust me about that. (article continues after the bump)
Episode 5: “Shot Seeker” Director: Maja Vrvilo. Written by: Andy Callahan
This episode of the show tells the sort of convoluted story this series excels at. It pursues two plots, and at times it hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. The main plot is about a missing girl and a friend of hers that seeks answers as to what happened to her. it also involves a little known aspect of the attempts at crime prevention by the NYPD, involving microphones around the city that pick up evidence of crimes, or more specifically, gunshots. Big Brother is not only watching he’s listening too.
Reese is on the case when the machine spits out a number that leads to a man, who at first, appears to possibly be the perp, but soon proves to simply be a concerned friend of the missing girl. While following the young man, Reese and he are nearly shot by a gunman whose path they cross. When Reese gives chase, he loses the felon, but is abducted and goes missing.
Meanwhile Fusco is approached by Bruce Moran (James Le Gros), the bookkeeper/partner of Carl Elias (Enrico Colantoni) who wants to know who is responsible for the death of the crime boss and his friend who was shown taken out by a sniper in last season’s finale.
With Reese missing, Fusco and the rest of the team assume the Machine’s nemesis Samaritan is responsible. the Machine itself is still only partially back to its old self, and not as helpful as it might normally be in this situation. Fusco has his hands full already with the missing girl case, because before he went missing, Reese handed it off to him. It turns out Reese was snatched by men that work for Bruce who is determined to find out the truth about what happened to Elias.
When Root joins the hunt for a missing hard drive that may help solve the case of the missing girl, and together with Finch they figure out the hard drive was planted by agents of Samaritan, and is a fake meant to frame a man for the girl’s murder. If this sounds confusing , it is. it’s even more confusing to watch it on tv. Its a challenging episode that keeps you on your toes if want to figure out what’s going on before the episode explains it.
Reese is finally released by Bruce, the he agrees to explain the truth about what happened to Elias, this leads to a huge surprise and revelation that there has been no indication was coming.
Elias is still alive. After the shooting, Fusco got him to the safe house where he remains, being on the mend from his wounds, after which, Reese and Finch nursed him back from the brink of death. This was a huge surprise and is a really big deal. It seems the show’s creators are not done with the crime boss yet, implying he will play a role in the coming final confrontation between team Machine and the agents of Samaritan.

Episode 6: “A More Perfect Union” Director: Alrick Riley. Written by: Melissa Scrivner-Love
A More Perfect Union starts out as the sort of story that has been the bread and butter of this series; the machine spits out a number, and the team must figure out who is the victim and and who is the villain in the situation. This specific case revolves around an upcoming wedding between the bride who is the heiress to a billionaire race horse tycoon, and her future husband who is a public defender. Reese is on the case when he follows a lead to a hotel room that was the source of a call to the police. He encounters a uniformed officer outside the door of the room, takes charge of the situation, and enters first. He is greeted by a group of screaming giggling woman, who apparently have been drinking…a lot.
The police call turns out to be a false alarm however, when it is quickly revealed this is the female equivalent of a bachelor party, and the uniformed cop is actually a male stripper hired for the entertainment. The look on Reese’s face is priceless when the truth of the situation is revealed. he dismisses his presence as being for security, when he declines to participate in the show. Reese is not happy with how things have developed.
Finch and Reese decide they should remain on the case since the Machine did give them the number, and things escalate when they both find ways to get invited to the wedding. The story at this point becomes more of a standard mystery plot, with everyone at the wedding a suspect, while they still don’t know who the target is.
The episode takes a brief tangent and shows Shaw in her hospital bed being awakened by Greer, who invites her to take a field trip. he claims it will be a trip that will open her eyes to why she should work for Samaritan. He takes her to the park where they sit on a bench and he prattles away. Shaw’s not convinced by his arguments, and then things get strange.
He takes her to rooftop later at night, where she is confronted by the boy who is the voice of Samaritan. The boy shows her a plan to start WWIII by blowing up the Russian consulate in NY. The boy continues to show her buildings being blown up across the city, until Sameen realizes that what she is seeing is not real. The scene shifts back to her in the bed once again. This is the point of Samaritan’s mind games on Shaw, it keeps jerking her around until she isn’t sure what’s real and what isn’t. This trip to the park was apparently real, but the scene with the boy was not.
Back at the wedding, there is a wedding photographer who in these sorts of tales is usually the killer that no one sees or suspects, but this turns out to be misleading, as she is actually the target. She has been marked for death because she took a picture of something she should not have seen. The actual guilty party is one of the bride’s sisters, who has been covertly drugging her father’s horses to win races, and is willing to kill to keep her activities secret.
Things come to a head as the killers in her employ are about to kill the photographer, when Reese intervenes. Surprisingly, its Root who comes to the rescue saving Reese and the woman he attempted to rescue from death. In an amusing scene she arrives like a knight to the rescue on horseback, just in time to shoot the killers in the legs and rescue the damsel in distress.
Meanwhile, Fusco has had little luck in his search for more information in the case of the missing woman, he was assigned in the last episode, until Root stops by his office with more information from the machine which may be related to the case. She gives him a new lead in the form of the identity of a city planner who is in charge of permits for the city regarding construction and demolition. A duty he performs for a price. She also leaves Bear with him to take care of temporarily. Fusco tracks the man down only to see him meeting with Elias’ partner Bruce Moran (James Le Gros) in the park. Fusco approaches Moran for more information and Moran gives him a lead to follow.
Fusco is annoyed at the team for not being more forthcoming about what’s really behind this case, and decides to look into the case more on his own. He travels, with Bear, to a location he thinks may lead to more clues.
Fusco finds more than he bargained for, when he discovers not only the body of Bruce, but the bureaucrat, the missing woman and a pile of other dead bodies stashed in a tunnel scheduled for demolition. The demolition begins just as he makes his grisly discovery, and he barely escapes with his life. A mystery indeed. No clues yet who is behind all of these killings or why they are being committed. This is a story arc that has been building over a few episodes, that is just beginning to emerge as more than it originally seemed. (article continues after the bump)
Episode 7: “QSO” Directed by: Kate Woods. Written by: Hillary Benefiel.
Fusco is pissed off. He nearly got killed when demolition began on the tunnel he was in, and Finch, Root, and Reese will not tell him what’s behind the case of who’s killing all those people and then burying them under construction sites. The other team members just keep telling him, its to protect him and they don’t want him to get hurt. Its really not clear if the team even knows what’s going on with the case, but they do seem like they know something they are not willing to reveal to Fusco, or us.
Root shows up in his hospital room with a package designed as an escape plan for Fusco and his son, should the need arise. That only serves to annoy him more. Root is dressed as a meter maid, and starts doing ballet stretches while she is in the room, she leaves and speaks with Reese and then Finch who are waiting separately in the hall outside Fusco’s room. After she leaves Fusco talks with Finch and tired of hearing the same excuses for not being all the info on the case Fusco tells Finch he quits and wants no more to do with the team.
Root leaves and goes directly to a theatre where she apparently performs in a ballet, as she is now in a the sort of costume you might see in a performance of Swan Lake. An admirer visits her in her dressing room with roses and begins to gush over her performance. Suddenly she shoves him and tells him to get down, As she does she hides behind the dressing room door, and then breaks a heavy glass vase over the head of a large man with a gun, who enters the room, apparently sent to kill the man who brought her flowers.
The man she saves, caught up in the moment, asks her to marry him on the spot. She leaves, but promises to call. We see her next in colonial garb at a historic tourist spot enacting a colonial woman churning butter, she is in a conversation with a security camera pleading with the Machine to help her find Shaw.
What’s amazing and very amusing about all this is, it all takes place in just a few minutes at the beginning of the episode. It works to provide us a glimpse into the life of Root as she changes identities on the spot when needed, at he behest of the Machine.
Her next stop is an AM radio station where she is needed to fill in when some the station’s employee’s just up and suddenly quit. The station is broadcasting a show called Strange Transmissions, a show about UFO’s, paranormal activity, and other stuff of that sort. the show’s host is a conspiracy theory freak named Max Greene (Scott Adsit)
Things get strange when a caller starts talking about committing suicide, and when Reese investigates, he finds the caller is already dead. The only thing is he’s still on the phone with the show’s host. It seems Samaritan is up to something, and wants the show’s host silenced because he’s getting to close to the truth about the evil AI’s existence.
So Samaritan wants him silenced. Agents are on the way to kill him, and its a good thing Root is there to save him, which she does, along with some assistance from Reese. She tries to get him to leave and go into hiding, but the conspiracy nut, feels he finally has proof his theories are real, and he refuses to go. He promises to keep silent about what has happened and so she and Reese leave, but the stubborn radio host changes his mind and continues to talk about the same stuff all over again. Long story short he ends up dead, even though team Machine saved him. they couldn’t force him to save himself by being discreet.
There is more of Shaw in this episode also, she is shown being kept in drugged state, but at one point she attacks the nurse who is about to drug her again on an elevator, but she is caught almost immediately, and the agent named Lambert (Julian Ovenden) that catches her, takes her on another field trip.
He takes her to see a woman scientist in a room, he tells Shaw the woman’s research will result in the death of thousands, and so she must be stopped. He hands Shaw a gun and Shaw shoots her without hesitation. Later, Shaw finds out it might not have been a simulation like she thought, but she may have actually killed someone.
Shaw is at the point where she doesn’t know what’s real and what isn’t, and after attacking another nurse who is about to drug her again she is siting on the floor of her room thinking about ending it all when she hears an odd sound. A strange pattern she recognizes in some buzzes on the room’s intercom. She knows its Root sending her a message. The look on her face says it all, she is suddenly back from the brink of surrender and ready to fight again. So with the team unraveling and Shaw near the end of her rope, the episode ends with a glimmer of hope for her at least. (article continues after the bump)
Episode 8: “Reassortment” Directed by: Kenneth Fink. Written by: Tony Camerino
Reassortment begins with Shaw overpowering the nurse that come to drug her again, This time its real not just a simulation. When the alarm goes off and Agent Lambert shows up to deal with her latest bout of misbehaving, he’s puzzled to find her vanished, until he notices a smudge on the floor near a baseboard. He breaks a nearby sink off the wall, and is shown looking into the space between the walls filled with the pipes, and whatnot of the building’s infrastructure, he smiles knowingly with appreciation of Shaw’s vanishing act.
This is an episode that develops on several fronts simultaneously, so bear with me. It is the nature of this show to jump from one plot to another, as the story it tells develops. Its good stuff, but does not make it easy to to do a synopsis of sometimes.
The scene shifts to Reese following a POI, James Ko (James Chen) whose number has come up, which leads him to a hospital because the man he is following not feeling well and has gone there for treatment. The man is showing symptoms of the flu, so he is given a shot. The effects of the shot do not have their desired result however. He drops dead soon after receiving it,
Back in the Batcave Root and Finch are having discussion about the future of , well, everything. Finch has the machine busy running simulations of the outcome of a battle with Samaritan, and so far no favorable results have been forthcoming from this
Meanwhile Fusco visits Elias and delivers the bad news about the death of his friend and partner Bruce. Elias supplies Fusco with a lead that may help shed light one the case. Even though Fusco has called it quits with the team he is still pursuing the case on his own. Because he’s a detective and a cop that feels the need to do his job.
Fusco has emerged as one of my favorite characters on the show, his no-nonsense, down-to-earth working class approach to life and what he does has a certain appeal. his evolution as a character in this series has been one of the most clearly defined of the series. I suppose I just have gotten to like the schlub of a man who refers to the team with nicknames he has devised that are both accurate and amusing. i especially like his referring to Root as Coco Puffs (as in I’m crazy for…)
Meanwhile back at he hospital the doctor (Jenna Stern), and nurse (Sonnie Brown), involved with the now dead POI are trying to figure out just what it is they have on their hands and how to deal with it. reese offers his assistance as detective Riley and the call is to quarantine the place until they know what they are dealing with. Reese recruits the security guard Paulie (John Mondin), who’s already there , to help out with this, the guard dos not look to promising as help, he appears to be fat, not-too-intelligent doughnut eating machine disguised as a man.
Finch arrives just in time to help out just as Reese is about to lock the door. The episode no escalates into a story resembling recent movies about a the begging of a new plague, as waiting patients get wind of what’s going on and begin to panic. It turns out the vaccine that was administered to Ko was the wrong stuff, improperly labeled, and it has combined with the avian flu Ko had to create a deadly new pathogen. it becomes a fight against time as people are certain to start dropping dead if a solution to the problem is not found soon.
Meanwhile Shaw emerges into a cell through a wall where two white prisoners are beating a third black man. They inform Shaw she is in Johannesburg, South Africa. when one of them tries to take the fire ax she is carrying, she knocks the two prisoners out, and allies herself with the remains man for information about her surroundings. this scene is amusing in its depiction. Shaw is often the source of many of this show’s humorous and amusing moments, and this is no exception to that rule
Back stateside, a man, Jeff Blackwell (Joshua Close) who appeared in earlier episodes, as a down-on-his luck ex-con, who was originally working as a house painter, and subsequently got recruited by the forces of Samaritan, is still trying to get his life on track, and although he’s grateful for the new job and increased income provided by his new employer, is beginning to question the nature of what they have been assigning him as jobs. He expresses as much to his supervisor Mona (LaChanze). She promises he can quit if that’s what he wants after one more job. He agrees but still has misgivings about his assignment, especially after it is revealed it involves two syringes they give him along with instructions of what to do with them. The destination of his assignment is you-know-where.
Fusco in the meantime has met with the man, supplied by Elias, who may be of help in his investigation of the murders, and one of the files he looks at leads him to Blackwell. Fusco gets the license number of Balckwell’s car and traces it to the hospital where Blackwell has been planted to carry out his assignment with the syringes he has been given.
When he is threatened with being framed by Mona for crime he didn’t commit, Blackwell goes through with the job despite his misgivings about the killing the doctor and the nurse in the ER who are the targets of what he has been given to do. he has been assigned to inject them with samples of the deadly virus. He nearly succeeds, but is interrupted by Reese who knocks him down before he can inject the doctor. He does succeed at injecting the nurse, and he stabs Fusco with the other, on this way out for good measure.
Later Fusco is shown packing his things, he requested a new assignment and a new partner, he’s serious about cutting his ties with team machine. A sad moment for me, I would hate to see the stodgy detective go, but i suspect the show’s creator’s are not done with Fusco yet.
Blackwell is emerging as a more important POI as the final episodes continue on their headlong journey to the series finale. i suspect he is being built up to play a major role in the story’s conclusion.
Back in Africa, Shaw is about to escape her prison when she is confronted by Lambert, who tries to convince her she is in another simulation and should just surrender because what she is experiencing is not real. Shaw feigns believing him so he drops his guard, and she suddenly pulls a gun and shoots him. As we all know, you never drop your guard around Shaw, she’s a killer-diller. Shaw relieves him of his car keys and finally escapes the place she has been held since the end of last season. Watch out world, Shaw is finally free. i would not like to be in Samaritan’s shoes at this point. (article continues after the bump)
So I, along with a lot of other fans, I assume, are going crazy with the agonizingly slow pace the final season is developing at. I have faith, however it will all make sense in the end. I feel fairly certain the elements that got us here during the development of this stellar series will all play an important part in the the show’s conclusion. Reese, Finch, Root, Shaw Fusco and Bear all all characters i have grown to love and care about, and I feel certain their stories will continue, for better or worse, or end, as the case may be, in the epic manner they deserve, that shows just how important to this series they are.
The series has plenty to recommend it in the way of adventure, action, mystery, and suspense, along with the novel ideas that make it so appealing, but i feel the real strength of the show has been the characters, how they have evolved, and how well they are depicted by the excellent cast that portrays them.
The episodes, so far this season, have been engaging, intelligent, and entertaining, despite maybe being a little frustrating in their apparent lack of having anything to do with the main story arc we are all mostly dying to see go down. The truth is the elements that will become important in the finale are already present for the most part, and are being subtly introduced, and developed as the season goes along. All leading to the war between team Samaritan and team Machine, and how it gets resolved.
It has been a memorable journey since the beginning, and it seems like its been all too brief, but all good things must unfortunately come to end, and I am sure it will be an end to remember. There are still five episodes to go and be sure to look back here for reviews and news as it comes to light.
