Person of Interest 1.15 'Blue Code' Review

An undercover cop is in danger as he tries to bring down the crew of smugglers he’s been on the inside of on last night’s Person of Interest. The show used this and Det. Fusco’s current situation to examine how truly capable of living on both sides of the law someone can be once they’ve walked in the dark. As Reese immersed himself into the same crew to keep Michael Cahill aka Officer Daniel Tully safe from harm, we were also given a few more glimpses into Reese’s own past during his time with the CIA. This meant the return of both Agent Stanton, Reese’s former partner, and of Agent Snow the man who tried to gun down Reese earlier in the season.

During the flashback to 2008, it plays out like your typical CIA drama. People in a room listening to garbled chatter while they try to out-vague each other—someone bound and hooded in the bathtub nearby, you know the usual. Reese is given a bit of time stateside and of course the first thing he does is track down his ex. Before he can make the mistake of speaking with her personally, Stanton steps in and gives Reese the standard ‘we’re not like them’ speech with phrases like, "we don’t walk in the dark John, we are the dark." She actually said those words and it's okay to chuckle at the cliché of it. Really the only Reese flashback that is going to be worth the time spent will be the one that helps to clarify what went wrong between himself and the company, as well as how Stanton apparently wound up dead when she worked with him. Other than that it doesn’t really add much to the story in the way that a Finch flashback, for example, tries to at least confuse the hell out of you with what you think you might know.
