|“||We've got an Object of Power loose in there, it's wrecking the place. The Benicoff TV. It's a, uh, it's a real doozy.||”|
The Benicoff TV is a small, old-fashioned television which possesses the power to levitate and affect the environment around it, inducing shifts in the Oldest House much like other Objects of Power. The TV's screen usually displays static, but sometimes changes to spiraling images resembling the shifts it induces. The upper right side of the face of the TV features a label that reads "paдyra". Panopticon Supervisor Frederick Langston refers to the Benicoff TV as a category five OoP, capable of destroying the Panopticon if not soon contained.
The Benicoff TV was acquired by the FBC after an event in Kansas and returned to the Oldest House, where it would ultimately be contained in Fortified Unit 716 of the Panopticon. During the Hiss invasion, the TV was able to break free from its containment unit, prompting Langston to call for Lin Salvador to respond to it with a security team. When confronted by Jesse Faden, the TV immediately reacted by dramatically warping its containment unit and several adjacent offices into a twisted corridor of shifting architecture. After dealing with the Hiss corrupted Salvador and his evidently unsuccessful team, Jesse was able to calm and bind the Benicoff TV, returning it to containment and granting her the Levitate ability.
- The Benicoff TV was the first Object of Power revealed for Control (excluding the Service Weapon), first appearing in the game's announcement trailer in June 2018 and being featured in various early gameplay demos. In the demo, the TV was contained in Unit 715, rather than 716.
