Person of Interest 1.07 'Witness' Recap

We’ve all been in the middle of something important and lo and behold, we’re without our cell phone. Maybe it got lost, or maybe something happened to it but to be without this basic convenience is never a good situation to find oneself in. Few of us have likely found the situation to be so life or death as our anti-hero John Reese as he deals with being cut off from Finch’s communication guidance while trying to get a witness safely away from a group of Russian mobsters. Soon they find themselves holed up in a grimy slum-tastic housing project as Reese tries to get this week’s POI out of the line of fire and into (eventually) a courtroom to testify as the sole witness of the execution of a former Cosa Nostra lieutenant.

As usual, Detective Carter and Detective Fusco are hot on Reese and the POI’s trail which serves to pull them both into the mob war brewing in the city. We also get mention of the figure known only as Elias as the person behind a plot to join the five families and remove the Russian mob from the city, starting with Brighton Beach. This show didn’t need to do anything else to get me on its side.  But throw in the concept of a full-on mob war between the Italians and the Russians and you better believe that I’m all for it. The Elias story is definitely a good thing for the show as it’s one of the few threads keeping Carter and Fusco from being completely adrift from Reese and Finch as elements of the Elias mystery can be found in both sides of the episode’s story.
