A quick sequence of surveillance videos around 35:40 includes several interesting marks made by the Machine.
A red cube around top floors of a building labelled "NSA DSF 203 F12", short for "National Security Agency Defense Services Facility 203.F12". This mark recurs eight episodes later, in "Dead Reckoning".
A red "restricted air space" circle around the Freedom Tower.
