Recap begins now . . . .

Tonight’s episode of Person of Interest picks up right where it left off last week. Reese is still being held at Riker’s and ironically Carter is assigned to try and poke holes in his identity. Agent Donnelly rightfully believes that Reese is the man in the suit and Carter has to play both sides to protect Reese.

She has to interrogate him while Donnelly listens in and disapproves of the patch that Carter is taking. She has three other men mixed in with Reese and she is weeding through them trying to shift the focus on everyone but Reese.

In a pivotal moment, Reese is let outside in the yard and comes face to face with Elias- the mob boss that he put in Riker’s. His cover can easily be blown now. Elias pulls him into a corner where there are no cameras and actually offers to help Reese. There’s an unlikely partnership.

One of the other three guys is being interrogated when Finch, mastermind of all gadgets, manages to hack into the prison system and pull the fire alarm. He tells Carter to put her phone in the inmates pocket as the exit the prison. Finch calls the guy and rattles off the guys whole crooked history and suggests they forge a mutually pleasing relationship.

Finch and Carter work together now while Reese is interrogated. As Reese gives answers Finch hacks in and creates fake proof of the answers. Donnelly checks every answer and Finch’s fake proof pops up on his screen every time. Team work at its best. As Reese tells about his true love Allie, Carter is sucked in. It’s clear that not every detail is fake on Reese’s’ part.

Donnelly sends Reese out into the yard to get the crap kicked out of him. He’s looking for Reese’s combat skills and Reese shows none. Instead he takes the beating. Carter starts leaning heavily on the other guys until one attacks her. He is arrested and Reese goes free.  She later meets Reese at the river at night, as they often do. She asks him if anything he told her was true and Donnelly appears and pulls a gun on both of them.

Donnelly cuffs them both and claims he is driving them to a safe house. Finch pulls up something on Donnelly and realizes they’re all in danger so he calls the agent and tells him just as their car is side swiped. Donnelly is then shot in the head as Reese is knocked unconscious. Tune in next week to see if Reese makes it out okay!

    Stupid -that is what the makers of the show think of the viewers the set up for the finale is identical to last years down to the flash back’s to ‘johns’ cia killer past, his near exposure and yet another ‘evi;l woman’ behind it all.

    Just cause the show runner is a misogynist we get a parade of nasty vindictive woman upsetting the bro’s. Apart from Carter (who acts like a bloke anyhoo) everyone in the show as a regular is male including the dog!

    Women only have two uses in this show either as the ultimate silly victim or as a nasty protagonist who must die – in as drawn out a way as poss.

    This never happens to the bad blokes one of the first of whom still makes regular appearances where he dances a folie a deux with harold or John. never both of them together. Always one or the other. Tonight he was positively creaming his jeans when he saw John was slotted up with him at Rikers.

    Since I’m not in need of being patronised with cliches this show has had it’s last view from me.
