"Limitless" is getting more interesting with each episode. And it's interesting to watch how the showrunners have tried to add humour to the plot of every episode to make it look different from other crime-fighting shows. The last eight episodes have seen Brian Finch working for the FBI, helping them solve cases with his NZT-fuelled abilities, but in episode 9, titled "Headquarters", he will be seen demanding rewards for his efforts.
In last week's episode, we saw how Naz is taken into custody because she is under suspicion of funding terrorists. She was seen paying a known terrorist to help with the release of her niece from Southeast Asian pirates. With so much action happening, the whole NZT programme at the FBI came to a halt, and Brian was seen retreating to Naz's home (his new safe house).
Finch, along with Naz's daughter, planned to find a solution using a pill from his stash. They negotiated with the pirates and finally, with Sand's help, got Naz out of detention.
In this week's episode, Brian will propose to SAC Nasreen "Naz" Pouran he go after people on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list, and it appears that the SAC will allow him to do so, but Finch demands something in exchange.
The synopsis of the episode teases that if he manages to capture all the criminals on the list within two weeks, the Special Agent-In-Charge will allow him to have his own personal "headquarters" at the bureau.
Plot synopsis of "Headquarters!" reads: "Brian offers to use NZT to capture the FBI's 'Ten Most Wanted' criminals in two weeks, in exchange for Naz giving him his own personal work 'headquarters' at the agency. Also, the secretive nature of Brian's new life working for the Bureau creates a rift between him and his father."
"Limitless" Episode 9, titled "Headquarters!", will be aired on CBS at 10 pm on 17 November.
