Episode 'Control-Alt-Delete'
Yep. Ya had me going for awhile there, boys! It looked like the show had taken a turn for the worse with a confusing mish mash of a plot! But no...as I turned it over and over in my fevered mind...
This episode is seen from Control's pov as indicated by her doing the intro voice-over usually done by Finch. As the title indicates, Control's function has been rebooted and Samaritan is the one in control. It was interesting to see Finch and the gang from an outside perspective as they finally get to use that rocket launcher!

Here is how The Machine constructs human speech patterns during the simulations.
She finds a million simulations yield no valid options. All simulations have undesired outcomes. Look for a resolution to this impasse in the next episode!
