Person of Interest - Return 0

After five seasons and more than 100 episodes Person of Interest comes to a close with “Return 0.” With both The Machine and Samaritan slowly dying, our ragtag group of heroes have one last mission: destroy the back-up copy of Samaritan to prevent it from ever returning. For Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) this means breaking into the Federal Reserve and infecting Samaritan’s air-gaped servers with the ICE-9 virus. For Shaw (Sarah Shahi) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) this means one final shoot-out in the subway. And for The Machine it means chasing Samaritan into space and finding a way to defeat the rival’s final copy aboard a satellite once and for all.

The penultimate episode of Person of Interest takes Finch (Michael Emerson) into the heart of the enemy and to the precipice of a decision of how far he’s willing to go to destroy Samaritan. Armed with one of the world’s most dangerous computer viruses and the need to protect his friends before they face the same fate of Root (Amy Acker), the only decision Harold has to make is would he be willing to harm his own artificial intelligence to stop Samaritan? To help its creator make his decision, The Machine offers a series of simulations of what his life, and the lives of his friends, would have been like if he had never created an artificial intelligence.

Meanwhile Reese (Jim Caviezel), Shaw (Sarah Shahi), and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) head to Washington D.C. to protect their latest number: the President of the United States. Realizing that Samaritan has deemed the President irrelevant, Reese and company realize Samaritan has no regard for individual human life unless he or she is a potential asset or threat to the artificial intelligence’s control of the country.

Person of Interest - The Day the World Went Away

Never was an episode of Person of Interest more aptly named than “The Day the World Went Away.” The series has never shied away from big moments, or shocking twists (it killed one of it’s three primary characters halfway through its run). As shocking as Carter‘s death was, however, this one cuts to the bone. The looming darkness which has hunted the various members of the team for most of two full seasons washes over them with such a force that not all will survive. Sparking the final battle between The Machine and Samaritan, the show’s 100th episode pulls out all the stops for a memorable, and heartbreaking, turn of events which will be he catalyst for the series’ remaining three episodes.
