Person of Interest Season 3 Review “Deus Ex Machina”

Last night’s Person of Interest season finale was a mixed bag for me. I found the first half of the episode completely ludicrous. The second half was more interesting and raises a lot of questions about where the series will go from here.

We pick up from last week with Greer, Control, the two politicians, and Finch all being tried before a kangaroo court made up of Vigilance supporters. I just found this whole concept really lame. As Control points out, Vigilance claims to be pro-America and the champion of people’s fundamental rights and yet proceeds to ignore basic rule of law. I understand the motivation of Collier to be revenge because he brother committed suicide. But come on. That’s a pretty thin justification for taking hostages and shooting government officials. The trial looked more like something that would be held before the Queen of Hearts. I don’t know. This scene just didn’t work for me at all. The idea that they would kidnap all these people, have some phony trial seemingly broadcast to the world…it just felt exceptionally far-fetched.
