So this ex-Vigilance hacker (I forget his name) was targeted for assassination by Vigilance, and the Machine went to Root, who "recruited" Shaw? Why would the Machine not give the number to Finch and Reese? Since Finch only gets irrelevant numbers, we could assume then that the target was considered "relevant" to national security. But who gets the relevant numbers now? Is "Control" still working on the relevant numbers? Does the Machine, with its new-found freedom at the end of season 2, still give relevant numbers to the government? Did the government ever
really get the relevant numbers, or was the "Control" group a vigilante force akin to Finch and Reese?
Is there really a third category now, or did the Machine just decide to change how it deals with the relevant numbers?
