While Dave's answer is certainly correct that they seem to be optimizing Shaw's behaviour somehow in order to better control her, it can still be possible to find The Machine this way. And they definitely try that, since one of the doctors says to Greer at the end: Sir, she blew her brains out again and she didn't lead us any closer to The Machine's ...

It's the number of different simulations run by Samaritan assets on Sameen Shaw. The purpose is not explicitly defined, but from context within the episode it seems that: However, that's just my interpretation - I'm sure the storyline will develop further in future episodes to confirm or otherwise.

One possible answer is if the first thousand or so simulations were rejected by "X" because Samaritan's version of FRR was out of character. For example if Finch were to start shooting a gun and not worrying about protecting The Machine, then "X" would get suspicious (whether questioning reality comes into it or not). So it's likely that Samaritan is also ...

The simulation's purpose isn't to see how and what "FRR" do, it's to see how "X" reacts. One of the comments we heard was: The purpose is to determine just how far alone the road to being reinvented as a Samaritan asset "X" is. Once Samaritan is happy with "X"'s responses, then the simulation scenario will occur for real, only by that point "X" will be ...

It is the number of simulation that Sameen is subjected to by samaritan operatives to extract information about Team Machine and its latest base of operations.

Imagine you having access to hundreds of books and the ability to read and understand them all in a matter of minutes. But, here is a cliche, you forget everything you have read. This might be the case of the machine, it had the access to the feeds and internet and analysed everything daily(after its "erase all data at midnight" rule) In S05E02 the machine ...

The Machine was programmed to erase its memory at midnight everyday. But it has been evolving, it is always evolving. Evident by the fact it is talking to Root as an analog interface. In Season 2 Eps 21 - Zero Day, Finch learns about how The Machine has created a fake identity and a company who hires people to re-enter data after midnight, essentially ...

If everything the machine learned during a day were erased at midnight, the machine would be unable to learn over time. One episode shows Finch trying to teach chess to the machine, so we can assume he wanted the machine to learn new things over time. The "erase all data at midnight" rule applies only to the persons of interest the machine learns about but ...

Episode 4 was filmed after episode 6 to give Sarah Shahi more time to recover from giving birth to twins. If the number 6,742 represents days, it refers to 18 years. If it represents hours, it's 280 days. Is that how long Shaw has been in captivity? After all, 280 days is NINE MONTHS. Yup. I'm going with the hunch that 6,741 refers to the number of hours ...
