Special Agent Donnelly (Brennan Brown) returns to recruit Carter (Taraji P. Henson) to help hunt down Reese (Jim Caviezel) who the FBI believes, along with Snow (Michael Kelly), is working for a private Chinese military outfit. Meanwhile, Reese has his hands full when The Machine delivers the number of a missing young woman (Jessica Collins) involved in a pair of robberies with a former Marine (Brian J. Smith).

After talking with the woman’s former employer (John Bedford Lloyd) who fired her for stealing from a charity for veterans, Finch (Michael Emerson) suspects there’s far more to her story. A little investigation uncovers the fact that the charity’s owner, not their latest number, is stealing from the charity by bilking hundreds of soldiers out of their homes through bad loans and pocketing the profits. With the FBI closing in, Reese decides to help the woman, whether she wants him to or not.

In ongoing stories Carter begins to look into the disappearance of Detective Davidson as Fusco (Michael Emerson) takes an interest in her new friend Detective Beecher (Sterling K. Brown) who we learn is tied to the secret head of HR (Clarke Peters) working to make friends in the Russian mob now that Elias has permanently cut ties with HR.

Although Reese is able to get the couple out safely, the last episode before the show’s Winter break ends, not surprisingly, in a cliffhanger as Reese, along with the men trying to kill him (all coincidentally wearing suites) are arrested by the FBI. There are plenty of questions for Carter to answer when the show returns in January including how much help she will offer to hide Reese’s identity and how that might effect Donnelly’s offer to join the FBI.

Amazing isn’t it, here she’s wearing a ‘protective vest’, and in other pics as well but in the one where she was shot, NO vest (John either) what so ever. What’s wrong with this scenario??
