Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 3.08

Ohhh boy. I am scared to rewatch and review this and the next few episodes. It’s a lot of feelings happening right now. But it’s also really really good, so I’m excited.

At the very end of the last episode, Joss finally discovers who the head of HR is, and has been fired up and ready to end HR for good for a while. But she knows they have all the tricks, money and power in the world, so she has to play smart if she wants to catch Quinn. ‘Endgame’ is precisely about that: the final objective (Alonzo Quinn) is now revealed, so how will he – and how will Carter – use the other pieces in the board?

The pursuit of HR by Carter is hitting very exciting and terrifying territory, we get some flashbacks that tell us a bit more about her family life, and her friendships with both John and Fusco are given more weight and color. It is a very Carter-centric episode and I am 110% here for it.

I have watched the whole show before, so SPOILERS MIGHT HAPPEN. Big spoilers will be blanked out but references and irrelevant spoilers are going to be out in the open.

We open with a brief “previously on” focused on the HR plot line and what we have learned so far, and her discovery of Quinn as the boss.
Right then we jump to footage from the MPoV (Machine point of view) of a burning car, a truck stopping to see what’s up, and someone shooting up said truck with a grenade launcher and stealing the truck.

What is John up to, even? I mean, it has to be John, right?

Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 2.12

This episode is fucking fantastic! One of my favorites in the entire series. Get ready, friends.

I have watched the whole show before, so SPOILERS MIGHT HAPPEN. Big spoilers will be blanked out but references and irrelevant spoilers are going to be out in the open.

In this episode, the case-of-the-week takes a backseat, but here is the gist: The number, Karolina Kurkova, is no more than background laughs and chases through the street – or something, I guess. Not a lot of explanation into why she is running or how she is saved are given, just that she is running from the Armenian mob and Fusco saves her life at the end.
Let’s move on to what concerns us, though: is Jesus going down?

The episode’s general vibe is good but not extraordinary, but waaaait for it. The ending is pretty damn good and nerve wrecking.

This episode starts with a wholesome, regular family moment: two parents bathing their child.

CW for domestic violence – shown in the episode and discussed in this review.

Many Happy Returns is super important to me. It is very intense to watch, though, so take care of yourselves.

Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 1.18

Only six episodes left in season 1! Fun fun fun. This week’s number is actually two people, both named Jordan Hester. Or more accurately, one is the real one and the other has stolen the other’s identity, so John and Harold must determine which is which, and who is about to be in trouble.

The Machine spits out four interconnected numbers. A CIA agent takes interest in the Man in The Suit that Carter has been chasing.

‘In the beginning’. N.I.

John thinks he is at the library (their main base of operations) early and is snooping around, but Harold is there and totally catches him. Oh Reese, all that espionage training and this is the best you got?

Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 1.02

John and Harold are working on the number of a teenage girl who is supposedly dead. What?! Yeah. That’s why it’s called Ghosts. But she’s not an actual ghost. Wrong genre, friends. This is (thankfully) not Supernatural.

I have watched the whole show before, so SPOILERS MIGHT HAPPEN. Big spoilers will be blanked out but references and irrelevant spoilers are going to be out in the open.

In this episode we start off with the tail end of a case they were working on, with just enough action to establish that John is a badass, but also to allude to the fact that John and Harold work on far more cases, all the time, than we get to see. I like those little moments. They’re usually fun to watch, even if they’re not relevant to the plot. In this case, though, it points Detective Carter to a pattern of a “man in a suit” shooting kneecaps all over town. So it does carry the plot along, I guess.
