Person of Interest Season 3 Review “Aletheia”

The winter break may be over, but Person of Interest provides no respite for Team Machine, whose enemies are coming at it from every direction. Since the loss of Carter, there has been a pall hanging over the show, and it’s starting to take a toll. Our heroes are being outwitted and outgunned and it needs to stop.

At the end of the last episode, Shaw, Finch and Arthur Claypool were captured by Control. Control wants Samaritan and the machine and is willing to kill whoever gets in her way to get it. As a refresher, Samaritan is a second machine that was created by Arthur but supposedly shut down in 2005. Arthur saved a back up drive and now everyone wants to get a hold of it. Control is poised to kidnap Arthur and kill Finch and Shaw, but her plan is foiled at the last minute when a rampaging Root bursts in to save them. At this point we know that neither Shaw nor Finch are going to take a bullet to the head, so this kind of set up fizzles.
