Person of Interest - Reassortment

While Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) are stuck in a medical ward attempting to prevent a deadly outbreak caused by one of Samaritan‘s agents (Joshua Close) all to kill two targets discretely, fans are likely going to be far more psyched with what’s happening in the episode’s B-story. Still fighting to differentiate between reality and the thousands of virtual reality simulations Samaritan has forced her to run, Shaw (Sarah Shahi) makes her latest escape attempt. And, at least based on what the episode offers the audience, this one might even be real.

Person of Interest - QSO

With each episode in the season The Machine begins to act a little more like its old self. In “QSO” it sends Root (Amy Acker) on a few seemingly unrelated tasks before making her a producer of a conspiracy radio talk show whose on-air talent has become a threat to Samaritan after uncovering a coded radio signal the artificial intelligence uses to instruct its operatives. Failing to understand how unbelievable the truth will sound on a show dealing with UFO stories and countless government conspiracies, Samaritan marks the man for death.

Person of Interest - A More Perfect Union

“A More Perfect Union” balances three stories. The number of the week sends Reese (Jim Caviezel), Finch (Michael Emerson), and eventually Root (Amy Acker) all to a high-end wedding where a member of the wedding party (although not the one they initially suspect is in danger). While given the most time of all three storylines, it’s actually the one which has the least impact on the season’s arc (although the final melancholy shot of three of them at the wedding reception certainly fits the tone of the show’s final season). As expected, Fusco (Kevin Chapman) continuing to investigate the series of missing people (all of them Samaritan victims) eventually leads the detective into grave danger as the computer’s agents cover up their tracks. Has another agent of The Machine met their end? I’m not betting on it just yet.

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

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?
