Person of Interest 04×16 ‘Blunt’: Recruitment

After focusing on Samaritan for a while, Person of Interest is back to the grittier, darker side of New York in the battle of the mafias. However, this time the story follows only one side of the rivalry. Reese and Finch attempt to protect this week’s number after she steals money from one of Dominic’s operations. These back to basic episodes depend on the intrigue of the weekly POI numbers, and characters like this week’s leave us wondering if we may see them return to help Team Machine in their final showdown with Samaritan. Let’s jump into “Blunt.”

Person of Interest 04×15 ‘Q & A’: Meet the Root of Samaritan

With this episode we see a lot of parallels between Team Machine and Samaritan. It was obvious that there were distinct similarities, but with the emergence of a familiar face we are brought the Root of Samaritan. Both AI aid humanity in their own ways and both dispose of people they deem a threat to their survival. One question remains: Is Samaritan doing worse than the Machine would be in the same situation? Food for thought. Meanwhile Reese tries to protect the next number, a software programmer with a mysterious second life. Lots going on this week on Person of Interest. Was this story full of shock and realization or was everything predictable? That’s for you to decide, let’s jump into “Q & A”

Person of Interest 04×14 ‘Guilty’: Back to basics

It was back to basics on Person of Interestas Finch and Reese decided to take on the world by themselves. This was the first real filler episode of season 4. Nothing to do with Samaritan and almost nothing to do with the Elias and Dominic battle. Instead, Finch’s cover identity is stuck on jury duty for a murder trial when the next number conveniently is another juror. Meanwhile Reese has continued to see Dr. Campbell as the team grieves the loss of Shaw. This legal procedural episode even has a surprise guest. Was this story full of shock or was everything predictable? That’s for you to decide, let’s jump into “Guilty” Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

Person of Interest 04×13 ‘M.I.A.’: Samaritan’s ant farm

Again the focus is on Samaritan rather than the criminal underworld of New York. Oh how we miss those days where things were simple. Instead, Team Machine has to deal with international conspiracies and A.I. world domination. How times have changed. The ongoing hunt for Shaw takes Reese and Root to Maple, a small town north of New York, where things are a little too happy go lucky. Meanwhile Fusco and a former person of interest team up to tackle this week’s number. Was this week’s Person of Interest jaw-dropping or utterly predictable? That’s for you to decide, let’s jump into “M.I.A.” Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

Person of Interest 04×12 ‘Control-Alt-Delete’: Control loses control

It wasn’t the finale to the trilogy that we expected, but it certainly did not falter in bringing satisfaction to the story. Unlike last week’s “If-Then-Else” which was extremely emotionally draining, this week Person of Interest steps back from Team Machine and focuses on Samaritan’s story on a national scale through the eyes of Control. Between Shaw’s death and Samaritan’s growing influence in the White House it seems that Team Machine has a lot on their plate. Let’s just hope that they don’t slip up with their heads not on straight. Here is the trilogy finale, let’s jump into “Control-Alt-Delete.” Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

Person of Interest 04×11 ‘If-Then-Else’: Sacrifice the queen

Uh, what just happened? I thought the finale of a trilogy was supposed to be the big climactic, jaw-dropping, gasp-inducing moment? Apparently Person of Interestbelieves in the unexpected by throwing a curveball in the middle episode of their three part Samaritan vs. Machine trilogy. If the writers expect to go bigger for the third episode then oh my we are in for a treat. As Team Machine attempts to prevent a financial crisis, the Machine looks in to all strategies to insure the best odds for their survival. Only sometimes you need to sacrifice your strongest pieces to win the game. Who will survive Samaritan? Let’s jump into “If-Then-Else.” Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…

Person of Interest 04×10 ‘The Cold War’: It has begun

Apparently this week’s Person of Interest was the first part of a trilogy of episodes revolving around the Samaritan vs. Machine battle that this season has been setting up. I’m rather confused about the placement of this story as the fall finale when last week’s episode was a far better cliffhanger. However, it was a good finale that brought us teases and foreshadowing as to what may have to Team Machine come 2015. The showdown has begun, let’s jump into “The Cold War.” Read the rest at gottawatchit.com…
