Person of Interest - Control-Alt-Delete

After one of the show’s must gut-wrenching episodes that saw the apparent death of Shaw (Sarah Shahi), Person of Interest continues to deliver the unexpected with “Control-Alt-Delete.” Rather than offer us an episode from the grieving Reese (Jim Caviezel), Finch (Michael Emerson), Root (Amy Acker), and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) dealing with the loss, the latest episode is entirely from Control‘s (Camryn Manheim) point-of-view giving us a look into the the Government’s use of, and frustration with, the intelligence provided by Samaritan. We also get the return of the computer system’s young avatar and glimpses of Samaritan’s plans to gain more power.

And the Heart of Darkness

Haunted houses are real. Attempting to repair broken lay lines leads the Librarians-in-Training to Slovenia where they discover a young girl (Lea Zawada) whose friends have met a gruesome end inside a house that Jenkins’ (John Larroquette) research tells them has the ability to appear randomly throughout time and space (but not for the reasons the Librarians initially suspect). At times a bit too goofy for its own good (remember the Minotaur and Santa?), these last two episodes of The Librarians have been slightly more serious in tone, while still keeping the oddball core dynamic of the group, as the show seems to be finally finding the right tone.
