Person of Interest > Person of Interest Review: Identity Thief > Comments Page 2
@Mrs. O'Loughlin - If Caviezel gets any hotter, there'll be scorch marks around our TV screens...
Proteus is awesome! A fake US Marshal working with a fake FBI agent; a fisherman that's a drug smuggler; a Marine deserter as a laborer; a good cop marked by FBI as bad.....throw in our own Kaiser Soze(Finch) with "hurricane"Carter drifting in and out...good show! The actors Chapman and Henson have said interviews that they're held to the script because there's a deeper meaning to the screen play. Bear as a seeing-eye dog lol. Another commenter misses Carter/Reese but what about Carter/Finch they keep amazing one another and their bonding to each other this season. Finch will work with her directly, bypassing Reese. Indentity Thief review is adeptly named.
For the first time I knew who the killer was right away.
I really liked this episode, I think it would have been better the week of Halloween as it had a scary movie feel but it was still enjoyable. This show has a knack for keeping things fresh and I think it always does a great job! Jim Caviezel seems to be getting hotter and hotter!
Really enjoyed this episode. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I too guessed it was the FBI agent but they left just enough hints that it could be someone else.
Loved how the killer started limping like Finch and mocking him when they were in the garage.
I am guessing they gave Kevin Chapman a week off. He deserves it.
Finch getting mad at the killer at the end brought back shades of Ben Linus. "You'll never get off this island" nice line by the writers.
I thought the attempt of changing every episode about Reese and Finch with Carter and Fusco as icing being changed into making every episode about the four of them only, will keep it FRESH. I'm certain future episodes will go back to the main four [along with Zoe and Root] and change the normal group from time to time so it stays FRESH. So I had no problem with all the characters added for one show. Think it's the reason they did it so when it's just our usual group, it will just keep making us wanting more and more.
Which it always does.
The Fake FBI agent as killer was obvious to me from the conversation with Carter before the first commercial break. The only mystery was why Finch and Reese didn't figure it out earlier. I loved the cinematography and the atmospherics were outstanding. But the strained and prolonged separation between Reese and Carter is annoying and unexplained. Why have they not had a scene together since Dead Reckoning? That is four episodes without this major component of the show. The forced intervention of Beecher in Carter's life is neither convincing nor entertaining. The show needs to get back on track with the Fab Four. Speaking of which, Fusco's absence was noted and not in a good way. The downgrading of Carter and Fusco is a major minus for this episode.
so Carter had NOT killed him afterall. Just then the killer jumped up and just as he was about to shoot them all, Cal appeared behind him and shot him in the head, killing him, finally. Great episode POI writers and special effects guys! I needed oxygen by the end.
(And give Bear a cookie. He earned it).
I watched but did not like this confused episode. I don't like that the Reese character is now secondary to Finch and is too often rescued by Carter and/or her partner. The introduction of a lover for Carter is boring and I guess they just needed to give another actor a job. Too many actors/characters adds to the confusion and works against the plot. I thought the show would get back to its original exciting story lines but I was wrong. Jim Caviezel and Henson are really wonderful actors and have great chemistry. Emerson is good but his character is too eccentric to play the lead and there are too many secondary characters. I am back to ion re-runs
The writers did a superb job with this episode by using the dark, wet, stormy weather to set a scary tone from start to finish. Loved the way the minute Finch found out the FBI guy was the killer, Finch was sitting in the dark and there was a sudden flash of lightning and there was the killer standing right behind Finch. Yikes! Lots of Hitchcock going on in this one. Even Bear got drenched (and helped solve part of the crime by sniffing out the human remains in a furnace and alerting Finch). Although I thought the FBI guy was the killer early on, I could not be sure as the writers had surrounded him with plausible other killers - the dental hygenists, the fisherman, the rich real estate developer, even the local woman cop. Great twists and turns - especially when Carter appeared out of no where to shoot the FBI guy just as he was about the shoot Finch - and then when Reese joined them, he was reminded that the killer, lying on the floor now, wore body armor (so Carter had NOT kill
Well, I was with our reviewer--I am not enough of a procedural aficionado, I guess, to have it all figured out, so I loved the episode and the twists. And I never watched brothers and sisters, so I hadn't a clue who the "FBI" agent REALLY was. I was going down the rabbit trail and thinking more that Root may be to blame for the machine problems, and wondering about Cal and still not feeling like we can trust him to figure the agent part out till Carter tried to call them after seeing the guy in the trunk. Finch is pretty wily, and his skills other than computers never cease to amaze me. I noticed his sudden squint too, so I was tracking more with the reviewer's thinking. I sure do enjoy this show! It has more twists and turns than Lombard Street!
I think it would be interesting if the killer's father showed up in 1981 to hook up with Phillip Jennings!!
Back on track after a couple episode blips ....
love me my Caviezel and Mr. Moore makes it a winning team, oops I almost forgot bear, they are the tv watchers trifecta; beauty, brains and loyalty (with a killer instinct).
We learned a couple things about Finch in this episode: first, he has a pilot's license that's apparently more than just show. Second, his eyesight is, quite possibly, perfectly fine without his glasses. Anyone who's put on someone else's glasses knows that it's very difficult to see properly while wearing them, plus they can cause headaches if worn for any length of time. The Evil Imposter Killer puts on Finch's glasses just fine, and Finch doesn't start squinting near-sightedly until Carter shows up to save him! Finch, you sneak!
I totoally enjoyed this show. Yes I figured out the FBI agent about half way through the show. When the woman was knifed and Reese knew the knife and the only guy it could belong to way to obvisious. Carter is still uncertian about Belcher . Maybe he is okay just doing his job. Finch is worried about the machine and 3days of quiet. We are being led into the new Storm ,that is brewing in the future. They still have Root and Samantha out there to create havoc. This show just keeps the interest alive and us wanting more.Good job.
Called the FBI agent from the start, so no suprise here
Sadly, I also called that it was the FBI guy from the moment the interrogations began. Kinda ruined the remainder of the episode for me.
Major props though for the scene where the Police woman got stabbed with a knife. For a good amount of seconds I actually considered Finch to be the actual identity thief rather than the FBI guy.
And yes, major props for the lighting in this episode.
I thought the killer was the FBI agent more than once but he wasn`t my number one suspect.
Did anyone else get beyond excited when Michael Emerson told the killer, "You'll never get off the island?" Benjamin Linus lives!!
@j. - I do think it would have been interesting having to figure it all out with out technology. That would have been a good twist.
@Jake - He did look familiar and I remembered him on the series Over There after I had written the article, but sadly I haven't seen brothers & sisters. It does make me want to check it out though!
I cannot believe the author of this article did not recognize Luke Mcfarlane who played the FBI agent! Didn't the writer watch the hit drama brothers & sisters? Luke is pretty famous.
Sadly, I disagree. I thought this one was a bit too obvious. The moment the "FBI Agent" ignored Carter's offer of a new lead, I knew that he was the killer.
I with they had gone with a slightly different plot... maybe having to figure it out without technology? Making the killer someone less obvious?
