Person of Interest - Asylum

Pushing forward to what looks like it could be the show’s bleakest season finale yet “Asylum” offers three stories, each of which end badly for our heroes. Given the numbers of both Elias (Enrico Colantoni) and Dominic (Winston Duke), Reese (Jim Caviezel) attempts once again to stop a gang war from fully erupting only to find himself captured along with Elias and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) by the Brotherhood. Control (Camryn Manheim) gets her own subplot as, after finally realizing the truth about Samaritan, continues to root out the computer’s spies within her organization only to learn what Samaritan has planned. And after receiving a phone call confirming Shaw (Sarah Shahi) is still alive and a captive of Decima Technologies, Root (Amy Acker) and Finch (Michael Emerson) walk into a trap forcing The Machine into an impossible choice.

Person of Interest - Terra Incognita

Taking place completely outside of recent events, “Terra Incognita” is memorable for the return of Taraji P. Henson as Detective Joss Carter for a single episode. As Reese (Jim Caviezel) investigates an old cold case Carter originally handled years before, Henson appears in flashbacks as well as a hallucinatory sequence where the show puts the life of its leading character in serious jeopardy. One of the most interesting ideas “Terra Incognita” deals with is the fact that both the show and Reese have over-romanticised his relationship with Carter since her death. This episode strips down those delusions forcing the former assassin to take a hard look at himself as he slowly dies in the cold alone with no one but a hallucinatory friend for company.

Person of Interest - Blunt

“Blunt” gives Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) a new number in a college con woman who, based on what we’ve seen here, is likely to be the show’s latest recurring character. In Harper (Annie Ilonzeh) the show introduces another character who lives in shades of gray and could easily become ally or enemy of Finch and Reese as we see her hedge her bets and expertly play both sides when Reese attempts to free the woman and her patsy from their dealings with Dominic (Winston Duke) and the Brotherhood.

Person of Interest - Guilty

Following Shaw‘s (Sarah Shahi) apparent death and Root‘s (Amy Acker) departure Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) get down to basics agreeing to spare anyone else from the fallout of their enterprise. The latest number comes in the form of a member (Blair Brown) of a jury which Finch gets assigned to as well. Given the high-profile defendant is on trial for what looks like an open-and-shut case for the murder of his wife, Finch assumes he’s the one pressuring their latest number into forcing a verdict in his favor. With some coaching from Zoe Morgan (Paige Turco), whose help Reese can’t turn down, Finch learns all he needs to help sway the jury to a guilty verdict… except that’s exactly what the people blackmailing their latest number want.
