Person of Interest - ShotSeeker

Whereas the previous episode was dominated by the long-awaited return of Shaw (Sarah Shahi), what “ShotSeeker” lacks strong central narrative it makes up for by juggling several disparate, but all very intriguing, elements. Finch (Michael Emerson) begins some disheartening experiments pitting scaled-down versions of The Machine and Samaritan against each other. Bruce Moran (James Le Gros) returns looking for answers about Elias‘ (Enrico Colantoni) death. A curious Fusco (Kevin Chapman) continues to poke around issues that threaten to make him an enemy of Samaritan. An analyst with keen ear gets on the wrong side of Samaritan when he brings Reese‘s (Jim Caviezel) attention to a murder the A.I. has done its best to hide. And, for the second episode in a row, a fan-favorite character returns from the dead.

Person of Interest - 6,741

Although there is a late twist in the episode you’re likely to see coming well before the reveal that explains both the title and what Shaw (Sarah Shahi) has been up to in the months since she was abducted by Samaritan operatives, “6,741” delivers an emotionally powerful episode as a damaged Shaw escapes Samaritan’s clutches. But, after months of psychological torture and a nasty new brain implant, can she be trusted or could Shaw be the Trojan Horse which Samaritan needs to destroy The Machine once and for all?

Person of Interest - SNAFU

The Machine may have been saved but it will take Finch (Michael Emerson) and his team the better part of an episode to work the kinks out of the system. “SNAFU” opens with a humorous scene involving The Machine’s inability to correctly identify people through its facial recognition software (allowing the actors to step in each other’s roles for a brief moment). Meanwhile, Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) spend the episode chasing down numbers who aren’t actually in any danger. The real trouble, however, comes when Harold’s A.I. decides to classify Finch, Reese, and Root (Amy Acker) all as dangerous threats.
