The frightening new credits from Samaritan’s point of view are a reminder that our Team Machine are still on very dangerous ground. This week’s mission is a scavenger hunt and everyone’s invited.
The new reign of Samaritan is here and the teaser illustrates how the new world order operates. If it thinks you are a threat, elimination is just around the corner in the form of a new blonde femme fatale.
A woman named Maria Martinez looks clean cut, but she’s stealing GPS locators and having secret meetings. Is she the victim or the perpetrator? Seems like standard fare for Person of Interest, however with this myth-arc, nothing is as it seems.
In which the Machine sends Root on missions to teach her a lesson in morality and Team Machine gets to tag along to complete the lesson.
R. A. M. – Random Access Memory. This is one of those episodes you can tell will be incredible as soon as the opening credits started rewinding. So everyone lets go back in time to 2010 when Finch was trying out Team Machine with training wheels.
Finch goes undercover as a 911 operator to help save another dispatcher. So basically he does what he always does, but in a more timely manner.
Reese tries to fly to Istanbul and ends up on the plane ride from Hell courtesy of The Machine. So… resignation not accepted Mr. Reese.
The thing about Person of Interest is that it cloaks itself as procedural, so when an arc happens it can be a surprise. The first episode started off appearing to be standalone about a poor NSA guy who was losing his memories. Memories that someone wanted to kill him to acquire. Instead it ended up being a fast paced two-parter that incorporated almost every bad guy the show has introduced in the last two seasons. The most fascinating head fake ever.
The fallout of Carter’s death is the center of this episode and a strange combination of the team falling apart and coming together. The opening montage to Johnny Cash’s cover of the song “Hurt” was an amazing way to show how each person was dealing with the grief or not.
Just like the title says, it’s time to bring the game with HR to an end!
