Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Really? No talk yet about Tuesday's episode. Looks like Samaritan is going to go on a killing spree and take over the world.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

loved the episode. i thought it setup nicely for a huge run to the end of the season and obvious cliff hanger. i cant wait to see what they come up with.

i have a few ideas on how they could proceed.

-Samaritan comes online leads to all out war with the Machines agents.
-Machine covets the item from this past episode and sends Root to obtain it, eventually leading to Root finding the machine.
-Samaritan turns out to be an AI written by the Machine (in most mythology the kids are always considered a threat to the parents)
-Root and Shaw hookup

POI has really become a terrific show (for a regular network tv show) that has really hit its stride now. I love that all the little pieces continue to fall into place. The last 2 eps were an absolute treat to watch for dedicated watchers.

I like that its a grounded superhero show and its hits all the themes of 'noble hero', sacrifice, death, villains who turn 'good' , 'messed up' heroes, etc. List goes on.

My fear is that after the eventual defeat of Samaritan down the road (not spoilers just my speculation) where can this story go to take it to another level?

Stupid question from a noob:

Is Root actually hearing a machine or does she simply think she is and that was why she was in an insane asylum?

She's actually communicating with the Machine (through surveillance video and her phone), and vice versa (through her phone's earpiece).

Yeah, now it uses infrasound to communicate with her cochlear implant over long distance so it can't be frequency jammed again (in addition to still using her cellphone if it wants to pass on more complex data and audio/visual information):



Also, I love the attention to detail and continuity between episodes again, with Root facing the consequences of her assassin days, and the Machine giving her a chance to redeem her mistakes and become more human by saving the guy whose life she ruined (the Machine is teaching her about humanity). Plus, they even give us hints about the next PoI (Maria Martinez) in the graphics of this episode:


https://www.personofinterestdiscussi...maria-martinez

Root: "Do you really want to see what happens when two gods go to war?"

Uh, yes please. That and you and Shaw hooking up.

It's pretty cool for this show to have such a strong ensemble cast that arguably the main (or co-main) character (Reese) can take a backseat in this episode without diminishing the quality.

^Indeed. Finch is by far my favorite character, but I can easy watch an episode that focuses on ANY of the "fab five:" Finch, Reese, Shaw, Root and Fusco. There aren't too many shows on right now where I actually like and care about all the main players.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Really enjoyed the last episode and how Root used Bear to track the guy--very clever. Although, I kinda got an "A-Team" vibe when they all showed up with the fire truck.

Reese crashing through the window was priceless. Although perhaps a bit reckless.

And why didn't Greer's men just shoot Root after the situation was disarmed? Yes, call this one a draw, but still seems a bit odd.

^yeah, that was a bit hokey. But, I guess the Baddie wants to eventually bring her to The Dark Side, so he's keeping her around.

Probably didn't want to take the chance that if they shot she shot and he still dies.

^ I was kinda wondering about maneuver. It looked like that was quite a distance---hard tell from the angle. Even though he was holding on to the guy and his body provided a cushion, wouldn't Reese at least have broken a wrist or arm or something from the impact?
