Flash forward to 2014 as John & Samantha chase a man on the roof of a tall building. They are searching for Harold Finch who was captured by the “samaritan” group who has the second “machine.” The man jumps to his death & they are again, nowhere near finding out the location of Harold. Root stole 7 of “samaritan's” computer servers. She brings in two computer hackers to track down Harold.

“Samaritan” leader, John Greer goes to senator Ross Garrison who was forced to shut down a group he created called, “control.” They were trying to get their hands on the second “machine.” Greer wants information on 300 million Americans that Garrison can provide. He has to pay massive fees though. Greer plans to sell that information through “samaritan.” Garrison also wants to buy “samaritan”, but Greer tells him that it isn't for sale.

John answers the pay phone on the street & the machine gives him a new “number.” It turns out to be “control” (female) who is back in town. John, Root & Samantha have to protect “control” whose life is in danger. Root says the second "number" they have to protect is senator Garrison. “Control” claims that John Greer stole “samaritan” from her & she wants it back. She goes to national security to try to over pass those enormous fees.

John Greer wants “samaritan” to go online to the internet. Harold tells him not to because that second machine cannot be controlled. Greer doesn't want control. He wants chaos. The third group called “vigilance” is in town to kill “control.” Peter Collier is with “vigilance.”

Can they find Harold Finch? Will Garrison & “Control” be killed? Will the second machine called, “samaritan” finally go online. You can watch the full episode of “A House Divided” at the official website of “Person of Interest.”
