Person of Interest Recap 'A triggerman merits the return of Elias'

This week, Person of Interest presented an interesting scenario. What happens when the man who the Machine declares the next number is a victim not a perpetrator, but he's also a dangerous mob enforcer traveling with a complete innocent? It put John and Harold at odds with one another as John argued that Riley Cavanaugh (Jonathan Tucker) may be a killer but so was he at one point. While Finch gets offended by the notion of letting Riley's lover, Annie, be put into harm's way at all even going so far as to quote his recent captor by stating that some people are just 'bad code'.

Frankly, the story itself wasn't the strongest this week as the young lovers tried to get out of town before Riley's former boss, George Massey, could get them both killed. The fact that Annie was a widow of someone in Massey's organization and Riley was the person who carried out the hit made it a little more interesting, but Tucker held the screen nicely enough with Caviezel in the latter half of the episode. There was a certain honor amongst professionals that made John's insistence of helping out Riley, a man he could tell has a good heart ultimately by his need to keep Annie safe no matter the cost to himself, work so well. It was also nice to see a character that could trade blows with Reese instead of it being another of the many one-sided fights that, while entertaining, certainly lack in tension at times.
