I'll gladly sacrifice a few of the more boring number of the week stories for this more grand narrative.
As the show gets older and new viewers are less likely, I bet CBS will let the writers drop more standalone stuff and go almost "Lost" esq heavy on the overall Arc.
I can see the argument going both ways.
"Hey! Person of Interest is a Top 10 show. We shouldn't muck with the formula too much and let the writers do what they want to do since what they've been doing is clearly working!" (YAY!)
"Hey! Person of Interest is a Top 10 show. With a few tweaks to make it more accessible to the masses and not drown the show in serialized arcs, we can make it a Top 5 show!" (BARF)
