There was no point to putting a tracking device in Tom, cause not only can they still communicate with Ben, but they've known right where the 2nd Mass is all along. That worm was something else and for all we know, it has brothers and sisters still inside Tom, just waiting for their turn to do whatever.
Exactly. No telling what its purpose was yet.
