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.

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.

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 - If-Then-Else

In an episode that sees the potential death of nearly every member of The Machine‘s team, “If-Then-Else” delivers one of the most memorable episodes of the series and ends with one character’s life facing a very real and permanent end as the three-part “Trilogy” event continues. With the Stock Market crashing Reese (Jim Caviezel), Finch (Michael Emerson), Root (Amy Acker), and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) are lured into a trap by Samaritan with Shaw (Sarah Shahi) stuck on the subway dealing with a suicide bomber. Trapped with no good options we witness The Machine run various scenarios in an attempt to not only stop Samaritan from destabilizing the world’s markets but get each member of the team out alive. It won’t be entirely successful.

Person of Interest - Wingman

Okay, that was F-U-N! In what turns out to be one of the most enjoyable episodes of Person of Interest‘s entire run, Finch (Michael Emerson) reaches out to Fusco (Kevin Chapman) to enlist the detective’s help for the their latest number who is a former dock worker turned professional wingman (Ryan O’Nan) helping single men meet women. Shaw‘s (Sarah Shahi) immense pleasure aside, Fusco struggles to both accept the man’s patronizing advice and keep him safe from danger stemming from a stolen weapon shipment with which he may or may not have been involved.
