Person of Interest - Beta

With Finch (Michael Emerson) missing and Samaritan now online in New York leading Decima hit-teams after Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Shaw (Sarah Shahi), Root (Amy Acker) returns to New York to do what she can to help and save the latest number: Finch’s former fiance Grace Hendricks (Carrie Preston). Although the Beta Test of Samaritan is running smoothly without turning on the computer’s higher functions (which the company still lacks the hardware to bring fully online) and delivers plenty of potential terrorists in New York City to please Senator Garrison (John Doman), Greer (John Nolan) waits to hand over those names realizing he can’t waste his best opportunity to get his hands on Harold Finch.

Shaw (Sarah Shahi) takes point on The Machine‘s latest number, an engineer (Nazneen Contractor) for an alternative energy company who spends most of her time on reconstruction projects in Third World countries and who is obsessed with convincing a U.N. diplomat (Michael Gill) to allow an Iranian refuge, and her former interpreter (Haaz Sleiman) and lover, entry into the country. Although the man is being held as a potential terrorist suspect, the real reason behind his imprisonment proves to be his knowledge of the failure of the generations powering the recently-constructed Hydroelectric plant in his country who the head of the company (Casey Biggs) will do anything to keep quiet.
