    The team all separate to try to find and kill Simmonds. John is seriously injured and dying and it's up to Harold to persuade Shaw to help find him before it's too late. Desperate, they enlist the help of Root.

    I have never felt to need to need to watch an episode of POI over and over again, up until this one.. this one, with the perfect opening, with the amazing writing (my oh my, the placement of the flashbacks, the Fusco's kinda eulogy while kicking the hell out of Simmons, and especially the final speech of Elias), very satisfactory plot and character development, twists and turns.. it all felt like a perfectly constructed short movie.. I loved it to each and every single scene, and it has to get some sort of acknowledgement..moreless

    It was not a perfect episode, but this was the kind of intense show Person of Interest needed as a followup to the last show. Where the show goes from here is crucial as they need to build off this momentum from the HR falout.
  • Great episode!

  • EMMY WINNING EPISODE - THE ENTIRE PACKAGE

    I don't know how the Emmy's could possibly ignore this POI episode / arc. Acting (Kevin Chapman & the entire cast, Bravo!), WRITING, sound, cinematography, film editing, special effects, directing, etc. I hope fans here put the pressure on the awards to play fair, for once. I also encourage all to go to the People's Choice awards and vote up POI for Best Drama.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Fusco: Witnesses put our pal, the psychopathic vigilante, at the scene.
      Finch: Which one?
      Fusco: You mean both your stray dogs are off the leash? This was the handiwork of tall, dark and deranged. And I shudder to think what the other one's up to.

    • Root: I promise, I'm here to help.
      Fusco: Just when I think life with you people couldn't get any weirder, one of you takes it to the next level.

    • Fusco: You just shot a Federal marshal.
      Sam: Just between us... not my first time.

    • Reese: Sorry... but I need a word with the man you're protecting.
      Lead Marshal Pollack: You just attacked a dozen marshals. Sorry's not going to cut it.
      Reese: They'll need some aspirin. Maybe a little physical therapy--move.

    • Reese: You do what you say. So do I. I'm not gonna threaten to kill you. I'm going to kill you... whether you tell me or not. No bargaining. In three minutes... you're dead. I've killed many people. Never bothered me much. That's why I was good at it. I didn't like them suffering, though. Took me years to figure out how to do it quickly, painlessly. But if you don't tell me, I'm gonna forget all that, understand? And I'll make the last three minute of your life last forever.

    • Psychiatrist: I'm here to serve you.
      Fusco: Oh, yeah? That case I'll take a bourbon on rocks.

    • Psychiatrist: You killed a man.
      Fusco: No. He got the Devil's share.
      Psychiatrist: The... what?
      Fusco: That's what we call it in when a guy like Jules gets his. it's the way the world evens things out. Guy got what he deserved. And you wanna know how I been sleeping? Like a baby. But thanks for letting me unburden myself.

    • Simmons: Get it over with, will ya?
      Fusco: That's just it. I could've been just like you, a bottom-feeder who turns on his own kind. For what? Money, power? I got lucky. I had a partner. She was good for me. For a lot of reasons. She reminded me that I could be good again too. i could be a good father, a good friend. A good cop. I'm not gonna let you undo all the good she did. Carter saved my life. She--she saved me from myself. Because she believed in me. And I'm not gonna throw that away on a piece of crap like you. Patrick Simmons, you're under arrest.

    • Simmons: Then why the hell are you here?
      Elias: Well, there remains a debt. Civilization rests on the principle that we treat our criminals better than they treated their victims. That we not stoop to their level. But you and I are outliers. We're not really a part of civilization. We're something... older. Which means, of course, that we can do the things that civilized people can't. I offered to kill you for Detective Carter many times, and she always said no. She was civilized to the very end. I don't think she liked me. But I liked her very much. And you killed her. So now I consider it my responsibility to fix the particular problem that is you, Officer Simmons.
      Simmons: You really think you're gonna be the one to kill me?
      Elias: No. No, my friend is going to kill you. I'm just gonna watch.
