Just finished The Crossing and... holy poo poo, that ending.

And if you'd been watching it in regular network TV back in 2013, you'd have had to wait a whole week for The Devil's Share, which begins like this:

God. drat. I love that opening. No dialogue. No dialogue needed.

Even if you've never watched a single episode of PoI, you know exactly what's going on even if you can't put names to faces yet.

You have offended STRINGIE! You must be punished!


And that's season 3 wrapped up now. Season 1 was definitely rough, 2 was a solid procedural season with an intriguing through-line and solid new characters and then 3 started pretty strong, then hit Endgame and it was like non-stop like at least once every episode from there.

People seem to be watching at their own pace anyway so I say we're just gonna continue into next month and see how far people are by then.

After how amazingly good season 3 was, I wasn't really all that impressed with season 4 or most of season 5 so far in comparison. They were good and all, but season 3's entire second half seemed like it was gonna be the high point.

Or so I thought until I hit The Day The World Went Away.

And so, season 5 and thus all of Person of Interest is now complete.

What a fantastic show.

Would you be my new best friends?


On one hand I should be mad at lazy writing, but on the other I love how the logic for (final episode spoilers) the Machine beating Samaritan despite never being able to do so before was "well those were simulations, if I fail this time I'll lose for real so I guess I better win!"

Somehow it was the most "human" thing I can think of that the Machine ever did, exactly the kind of wonderful bullshit that Finch or Reese might have pulled. Well, that of course but also this from the end of season 4:

MAMAMOO STAN

Haven’t got there but I hope that one of the cast feels down in the last episode and then the machine or Finch, in order to comfort them,says “ You were always a Person of Interest.... to me “ or something similar. End scene.

Do not attempt to adjust your set...

My impression was also that in the simulations the Machine and Samaritan were fighting on somewhat equal footing, whereas in the actual fight, the Machine was already in the satellite when Samaritan tried to upload itself and had the advantage.
