He would have had at least a concussion and probably some broken ribs and internal damage from the impact. It would be recoverable, but he wouldn't be immediately up and walking around after that anywhere but in Hollywood.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

I thought that was a decent episode. Took me a while to realize that Ken Davies was Damar!

I recognized him right away. That voice is unmistakable!



Pretty good episode except I did not like the whole Root sequence, especially toward the end. Following him around everywhere just have a talk and then let him walk away? WTF? That seemed like a total waste.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

I thought this last episode was poor. The last few with Root and the two machines were great, but this episode dropped the ball hard.

Some issues:
- Shaw idiotically falls for the target's 180 degree about-face about doing something about the situation personally and the "you want a drink" ploy and doesn't notify Harold about her escape until Harold calls her?
- Triple layer security at the UN, but there are a bunch of black-clad Legionnaires holding a fight in a big lobby and no one comes to investigate? Our crew shoots people, breaks into offices, and walks out with no one reacting at all?
- Shaw fires two grenades through windows of the UN and the triple-layer security never bats an eye?
- The wrap-up at the bar, with the reversed deportation decision, occurs on the same night (according to Shaw’s dialog)? Fusco doesn’t have mountains of paper work he is still wading through? At least in earlier episodes where I had issues with them dropping important threads/ignoring major crime scenes, (for instance the guy that burned to death in the trunk of a car that John escaped from), they mention it later (as a crime scene the FBI investigated), but I don’t think they will ever be revisiting any of the major crimes that occurred here or the serious lapses in logic that are forgotten about.
- For all the good episodes where Harold and John are unsure about the target's good/evil status and do a proper investigation, there are episodes like this one where they jump to the obviously wrong conclusion and hold onto it too long (in this case, until the target revealed she was carrying paper, not a bomb).
- Conservation of characters and Casey Biggs’s presence telegraphed that he and the Greek diplomat were probably the real villains. Yeah, sometimes you can’t avoid this kind of thing, but normally POI handles this kind of situation more gracefully.
- The aforementioned confrontation with Root and Bear and John Greer seemed sloppy in terms of not being a real standoff, but I guess John G. was really serious about not wanting to negotiate at either end of a gun barrel, so this passes.

Looks like Samaritan is now online.

Why exactly did Finch leave the others even though Reese didn't put a bullet in the senator's head? Then again, he propably knew that Decima would get the connections and he would be the first logical target, so I guess he wants to protect Reese and Shaw essentially from himself.

I saw it more as him rejecting the Machine (since it wanted them to kill -- possibly) rather than rejecting Shaw and Reese. The numbers being targets instead of victims or perpetrators seemed to greatly unsettle him. Maybe he's just dropping off the grid until he can reassess the new methodology of the Machine.

^That's exactly how I saw it. Finch knew he would be one of the first targets for Decima, so he had to make himself scarce.

I like that they stayed true to Finch's character and that he didn't

The music montage at the end was very well done. PoI does that better than anyone on tv now.

Watched it last night. Should be interesting to see how they react to being the hunted next episode.

On a related note, I think I blew their cover yesterday.

Who'd you prefer a visit from?

Shaw or Reese?

Shaw, but only if the machine tells Root to join in...

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

I enjoyed seeing Samaritan's interface and timeline functions. I wonder what the deal is with the truckfull of servers? I thought Root was going to sabotage them somehow, and maybe that's still the plan, but perhaps she stole them to upgrade her own machine.

I liked how the episode was a stalemate except for Decima having more man power. Though I'm not sure about Virgil offing himself like that; on command.

Good stuff!

I really thought my interest in this show would wane with the loss of Carter.

But they've managed to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

I thought it was pretty clear that Root took the servers to bolster The Machine--perhaps help it to overpower Samaritan.

I was really, REALLY hoping that Grace's blindfold would slip when she stumbled or that Harold would say something to her. I'm hoping that somehow, when the show finally ends, that Grace and Harold get to be together in Italy. *sigh*

And would someone please refresh my memory? Where is Bear? I know there was a throwaway line about him a episode or two back, but I can't remember what it was.
