Terribly written review! Gosh.
Wow. One of the best episodes of POI ever. My heart hasn't pounded this much while watching television since Breaking Bad's 'Ozymandias'. Not that I'm trying to compare the two shows (that would be impractical), but my point being that the suspense was amazing in this episode. The Root/Finch scenes were compelling as always, with Finch doing his best to lead Root away from trusting the Machine unquestioningly. (With good reason, it tried to kill him after all. I would be terrified, too). I side with Finch on that one. But Root is also correct later when she says the difference is Harold. The only reason I would trust the Machine is because it has Harold's morality to guide it. Alongside those riveting scenes, fear of Samaritan, and Root's apparent suicide mission, the writers strike another emotional gut-punch when John brings up Carter. I wanted to burst into tears. I love how Carter is never forgotten on this show. Amidst all of the suspense and drama though, was a smidgen of comedy. Also, a lot of surprising suggestiveness and innuendo between Root and Finch (even though we all know it will never go there). But I seriously had no idea what Finch was going to say after he asked Root, "You must be lonely, how long has it been?" If that line wasn't coming from innocent Harold... Haha, his reaction to Root stripping in the subway was priceless. I was just thinking how hilarious it would be if she decided to kiss Finch as a part of her message to Shaw, haha. I was wondering when POI was going to take it to the next level, and I smelled that it might come from the Samaritan plot with the rigged election this episode. But it blew away even my heightened expectations. I'm going to be on tenterhooks waiting for the next episode! Person of Interest is the best show on right now and my second most favorite show that I've ever watched. Now that it will be on Netflix, people need to spread word-of-mouth news that this show must be watched! Now people can binge-watch and get on board with POI! The show does not receive nearly the amount of recognition and praise it deserves. And it's high-time for some Emmy love for this show!
man that Abel is one creepy ass little kid
Of course the demon inside Dean isn't gone.... I might be in the minority here,but what will the end game for the show ultimately be ? I'm all in for Lucifer coming back and roaming the earth. I mean no matter what supernatural evil entity they conjure up, it still will not come close to being as wicked as the devil himself. I just feel they need to conquer Lucifer,he is the ultimate bad guy is he not ?
Man that Villain was straight from Smallville I guarantee it lol.
I was suspicious of the captain right off the bat because, alas, he was played by the wonderful Jim Beaver. Rarely do they cast good and memorable actors in bit parts! But I have to say that ol' Cap doth protest too much: he was apparently perfectly willing to risk the lives of the rest of his crew to get his payback. That's cold!
Honestly, I could care less about Brett's character. She's boring and uninteresting. I'm shocked the writers thought it would be a good idea to get rid of Shay. I read somewhere that they killed off Shay because her character effects the other characters the most on the show. So far, it looks like only Kelly is suffering. I am interested to see how Casey and his sister's story plays out. I do love the Chicago PD crossovers though!
I think the demon question is far from over. Dean is cured for now, but until the Mark is stripped from him, he still needs to kill, according to Crowley. Dean may be "normal" for a few episodes--because the EPs believed that fans will demand that--but I think the whole Mark issue and the hunger to kill will rise again. I just don't want them to revert all to normal. You can't throw this big a game-changer into the works, then drop it absolutely, if you want fans to stick around. I don't believe the EPs are that stupid. They spent a lot of time building the Mark as the harbinger of Dean's transformation, and I don't think they'll drop it now.
I totally agree with your review. The only way they could have made it any more obvious would have been to put an arrow above the captain's head. As soon as Tony interviewed him I knew for sure, and I had my suspicions before we even met the man. I, personally, am tired of super-hero Gibbs. While Tony wasn't made a complete fool of here, Gibbs had to be the one to figure most things out and seemingly save the day again. And the dig by Borin at the end on Tony (he'd be a solid #3...WTH???) was unnecessary. Borin was a throw-away in this one. A waste of her abilities and the actress's talent. Abby's line of "I don't even recognize you any more - ugh!!! And don't get me started on the previews for next week... This week was a dud, and I've been trying to give
I like it because it reminds me of small ville, But Barrys peronility doesn't really fit with the comic character he has no smartazz like qualities. He comes off as a boring scientist. but hopefully it is just his confiedence as the series has only started.
