Really enjoyed this episode, especially the Carter as bad-ass portion. And that ending! Great set-up for next week's episode.

^That was a good episode. I liked that Carter finally put the smack-down on stupid-young-partner; that was great.

Looking forward to next week's---Shaw vs Root. Should be good!

Shaw's bad girl act has been a little over the top this season but I like the glimpses into the character that we're getting.

Wow! For the second straight week, two seemingly different storylines intersect. And the latest group of bad guys return with a name to go by.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Another excellent episode. I too enjoy how the storylines intersect.

The part where Reese finds the fridgefull of heavy weaponry but it's "nothing unexpected" was good and calls back to Reeses collection in the library that Finch didn't approve of in Season 1.

Is Kevin Chapman doing another show or working on a movie? It seems like he only gets one or two short scenes every week.

I liked Finch and Roots conversation at the end. Who can really say what the Machine wants? But I'm eager to find out what the new "third catagory" is.

Finch and Root's conversation at the end? Did I stop watching too soon or are talking about Finch and Shaw?

Chapman has two movies coming out soon, so yes, I assume he was working on film when they shot some of these episodes.

Yes, you stopped watching too early. Finch is now keeping Root prisoner in the library.

Also it seems like they hinted Kirk Acevedo's character could be some help in the future, with his knack for finding things. I really hope we see more of him, I like his acting.

Category 1 - Relevant to the government - National security related threats (terrorism, assassinations, sabotage, hacking of government computers, espionage, etc.).

Category 2 - Irrelevant to the government - Non-national security related threats to individuals, mostly limited to higher profile crimes like murder.

Category 3 - Threats to the continued existence of the Machine? Threats by the government against the people (maybe the Machine sees its very existence and abuse as a threat to the people and their rights and is trying to remove the threat/keep itself away from the wrong hands, ie. the government and other groups)?

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

So this ex-Vigilance hacker (I forget his name) was targeted for assassination by Vigilance, and the Machine went to Root, who "recruited" Shaw? Why would the Machine not give the number to Finch and Reese? Since Finch only gets irrelevant numbers, we could assume then that the target was considered "relevant" to national security. But who gets the relevant numbers now? Is "Control" still working on the relevant numbers? Does the Machine, with its new-found freedom at the end of season 2, still give relevant numbers to the government? Did the government ever really get the relevant numbers, or was the "Control" group a vigilante force akin to Finch and Reese?

Is there really a third category now, or did the Machine just decide to change how it deals with the relevant numbers?

Based on one brief moment of dialog from this week's episode, if someone truly is going to die as the previews suggest, I think it's going to be


Or maybe there's HR blowback on Fusco and he gets taken down by the authorities, so he falls but doesn't get killed.

Heh, I had the same thought once they mentioned the vest and I had seen the "A hero shall fall" previews for next week's episode all this week. That would be a really colossal misdirect, though that's a pretty typical false tease in TV (not killing someone off after implying they would).

Great episode this week, and I'm looking forward to the two follow-ups.

OK, why would you spoiler code that? It's not a real spoiler. You don't know anything that the rest of the fans don't know. You're just spit-balling. So why bother spoiler coding your guess?

That said, I'd imagine they'd kill off Reese before killing off Bear. They have Shaw waiting in the wings to replace Reese, but who could replace Bear? And it's not like the dog can appreciate a well-crafted death scene, while human actors seem to love a dramatic death.

Granted that Reese is more or less the main character, but then killing off Hartnell's Doctor was similarly shocking, but now we're used to the idea of the main character changing out regularly. It could be POI will end up going this route in the future, with Finch regularly replacing his field operatives.
