  • Finally my two favorite characters team up Root Bear

    Yes Mr Greer gave Root the slip by elminating sound, sight, any source of tracking device nearby but I give props to Root for using the least common of the five sense in tracking him down a 2nd time. Smell.

    Root Bear as I like to call it is a funny pairing that has never happened before. Or Root Beer if you prefer.

    The rest of the episode was pretty hum drum and predictable. The master plan of gathering hardware, software and no a means to cool and power it up was what the enemy was after so now we are just waiting for Samaritan to start up. I am willing to bet that even the baddies don't know what they are getting themselves into.moreless
  • This week was so boring

    This week was so boring that I cannot really remember what happened! something to do with stolen generators in Iraq embassy's and,legionnaires trying to kill a woman. In the side story, Root and Bear stole the show though!
  • Allegiance

    This episode stood out as being very mediocre in what has been a strong season for Person of Interest. Very boring storyline with an uneventful payoff.
  • Great episode

    This show gets better and better
  • Borrowing Your Dog

    I think the writers finally realized how pushed off to the side Reese had become over the last few episodes and decided to do something about it. This week's episode felt like a run-of-the-mill weekly, but it wasn't a bad one. Obviously, Root stole the show on her Machine mission and with that offer at the end. He did hit on the one thing that might sway her, but having to go up against Root again would just be lazy writing, so I don't see her doing it. We'll see. I could definitely do with more Reese screentime, though, especially when they showed off what he was capable of this week. Classic. Decent episode, can't wait for next week, though.moreless

    • Sam: You know, you really should get out more. Learn something about other cultures.
      Fusco: What are you talking about? I just ate a falafel.
      Sam: Yeah, and you got some on your tie.
      Fusco: That's the second time this week.

    • Sam: Finch, what's our ETA on Captain America?
      Finch: Mr. Reese should be with you directly.

    • Maria: Have you ever been to the desert at night?
      Sam: The only thing I remember about the desert is wiping the film off the top of a warm glass of camel's milk. That's where the bacteria breed.
      Maria: Good advice.

    • Reese: Stop blowing the fire horn, Fusco.
      Fusco: I've wanted to drive one of these since I was a kid.

    • Sam: I thought you didn't care about foreign cultures.
      Fusco: That's what's great about New York. You don't have to travel to learn about other cultures. They all come here.

    • Sam: Finch, what's our ETA on Captain America?
      Referencing the comic book superhero first published by Timely Comics in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941) and created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Steve Rogers was injected with a super-soldier formula during World War II and gained peak human strength and reflexes. Equipped with an indestructible shield, Rogers donned the costume of Captain America and battled Nazis with his partner Bucky. An explosion of a drone plane threw him into the North Atlantic where he floated for decades in a block of ice before being revived. As part of the Marvel Comics roster of characters, he joined the Avengers and battled crime on his own as well. The character was killed off in March 2007 but has since been brought back in Captain America Reborn in the summer of 2009. A feature movie with the character was released in 2011 and a sequel came out a few weeks after this episode premiered.
