The Perfect Mark




Awesome episode that literally ends with a bang. The cast itself was damn entertaining as it keeps everyone guessing as to who is hustling who. Even though I saw the twist coming a mile away, it didn't lessen the impact whatsoever. The fact that the MacGuffin in this one had to do with a signed baseball from the 'Murderer's Row' Yankees (Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, etc....) was just a bonus. The big reveal for the overall mythology of the series comes at the end when Carter's partner is gunned down, who in turns takes out Detective Raymond Terney. Mere seconds away from moving on into the next world, he fingers Alonzo Quinn as the head of HR, the one that Carter has been confiding to. The look on her face says it all. My drinking game continues as Fusco shows up for one scene and then is gone......again. Ack! Aaron Staton from Mad Men guest stars as the Con Man.

Endgame



What a fast hour and one filled with nothing but impending doom. With a title like Endgame and the fact that this was pretty much a Carter-rich episode, I couldn't help but feel uneasy watching this. I love Taraji P. Henson and the idea of this episode leading to her character's impending death made this one of the most uncomfortable episodes I have ever watched. The entire episode was basically set up for her to say her "goodbyes" to Fusco, Reese, Ex-Husband and Son. Factor in the fact that Carter finally "crossed the line" from uploading the law to actually breaking the law to make her plan play out as it does, it made the writing on the wall the more clearer that this was it for her. Not! Look, in the back of my mind I had a fail-safe Carter in how she could escape harm. But given that this is a series in this day and age where writers don't have a problem killing off Main Characters to serve the story, it left me uncertain.

I'm just glad that she came to her senses and called in Reese for backup. Now next weeks episode should be epic because with Alonzo Quinn in her custody, it's a race to deliver him to either a precinct or a safe-house and in their way will be tons of dirty cops (i.e. members of HR). I'm expecting a shootout for sure and this will something right up Shaw's alley.  ;D Bring it on!!!!

FYI, if they ever did kill off any of the three main characters (Finch, Carter or Reese), it would be the death of the show.

The Crossing




Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!


No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no! I can't believe they killed off Carter! What the f*ck!!!!! Worst decision the writers ever made is to kill off Carter! FUUUUUCK!!!!!! I'm speechless. Angry. Sad. Confused. P*ssed. Fuuuuuuuck!! Why? Why? This is NOT  sitting well with me right now. I love the character of Carter, but I love Taraji P. Henson more. Sigh.

I kinda saw this coming based on last weeks episode. But the nail in the coffin that pretty much told me her ticket was up was when Reese and Carter finally kiss. There as been an inkling of a blossoming romance between the two. It wasn't overt to draw attention to itself. It was a look here and a smile there that showed there was a spark between the two. But when they locked lips, I knew it was over. In spite of this MAJOR bombshell with Carter, overall the episode was fantastic. An on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller from start to finish. Even Fusco had a huge part in this one. I was certain that he was the one that would be going. But as soon as he survived, there was no other choice that Carter would be it. Man, I'm still p*ssed like never before.


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!

The Devil's Share




I actually put off watching The Devil's Share for a couple of weeks because I just wasn't all that keen to see an episode without Carter. More specifically without Taraji P. Henson. With her gone, this is a such huge uphill battle for the series to get over. I don't think the show is going to suck, but there is going to be a big hole to fill. Henson was and is awesome in POI. Anyway, just as I suspected, watching this episode felt off because she wasn't around anymore.

This one is basically the retribution episode as everyone in New York City is on a manhunt to track down Simmons, the man responsible for Carter's death as well as being the one that also shot Reese. The entire city may be after him, but it's Reese that he has to be worried about. Obviously Reese isn't one to sit in a hospital bed and recover from his injuries. So, we have a dying Reese in hot pursuit of Simmons location. But the road leads to Quinn of all people. It's a great scene between the two. I think the biggest surprise for me is that it's Fusco that tracks down Simmons and issues the beat down that we all thought would come at the hands of Reese. But given his condition with him bleeding out, that's asking a bit much.

Another surprise was seeing Elias revealing himself to Simmons inside his hospital room. He's the one that hands out justice in Carter's name. I wonder if his role will start to ramp up now that HR is done. One thing I see happening is that Root will more or less take over the spot once inhabited by Carter. They did give Root some great scenes. In the way she was taking out all threats once Finch agreed to include her in finding Reese, it was like watching a female Terminator. Solid episode....even if it was a bit off.

This has been a sh*tty past few weeks because they killed off two beloved characters. Carter in Person of Interest and Herschel in The Walking Dead. Sigh.

Lethe




Lethe is another example of the amazing writing this series has produced over and over. The episode kind of starts and plays out as your "typical" POI story. But the longer the plot reveals itself, the deeper and more meaningful it gets. Lethe is a two-fold origin story. The first being that we see how Finch became who we all know and love. But it's the 'why' that really forms his character and gives it meaning. Seeing the flashback scenes with him as a kid with his father makes everything that has come after the fact all the more richer. The fact that he came up with the idea of the machine for the sole purpose of helping his father remember stuff as his mind started to deteriorate pretty much maps it all out. The other origin story is that of the second 'Machine' called Samaritan, which was actually created before Finch's own Machine.

Having Saul Rubinek as Arthur Claypool, the creator was the perfect casting choice, but I couldn't help but think that I was watching Artie from Warehouse 13 though. Like I said....perfect. The other great casting choice was having Camryn Manheim play his "Wife". Remember what I said about the great writing? Well even though I suspected that she wasn't really his wife and was in fact an 'Agent'. What I didn't see coming was that she was and is THE Puppet Master. I was shocked to see Hersh show up as I thought he was dead, having been gunned down in the street. So when it's revealed he is working for Diane, it gave me a huge 'what the f*ck' moment.

I liked that they have sent Reese on a bender as he tries to cope with losing Carter. If the writers had him 'back at work' so soon after losing her, it would have felt wrong in a lot of ways. It can't be 'business as usual', in spite of them having a job to do. Having him questioning everything and getting drunk in the process was and is the way to go. Having Fusco tracking him down and then engaging in a brawl with him was the icing on the cake of a fantastic episode. Props to letting Shaw carry the bulk of the episode with Reese "out of the picture" for the time being.

Aletheia




Another outstanding episode. As simple as it was (to get into the bank and retrieve the backup Samaritan), it sure packed a lot of top notch moments and more back story about Finch. I thought it was a great way to bookend his father losing his memory of him and the emotion he had toward Arthur who himself was losing his own memory. Great scene at the end when the 'Machine' gave him a present by playing the best parts of him on video, especially his Wife. Nice twist by having the 'Bank Manager' swapping out the backup with dummies so that Arthur never did destroy it as he (and we the viewers) though. Now it's in the hands of the bad guys. Fantastic writing all around. Loved the torture scene with Root and her ability to turn it on her captor, Control. Can't wait to see what happens next!

4C



The loss of Carter is still being felt, as exhibited by this episode. I can't recall another show that would still be reeling (and rightly so) from the loss of such a beloved character. This may all be make believe, but even I miss Carter. As for the episode, it was great to see that the Machine could still make Reese do his work, even if he doesn't want to. Enjoyed seeing Samm Levine in this one. I like that the majority of the episode takes place 30,000 feet in the air as Reese has to track and find those with evil intents to take down the plane. And, it also looks like they are setting up a potential 'love interest' for Reese as well. Yes, still too soon given that he is still mourning Carter. But the ending does leave it open. I liked the final shot of the episode where Reese and Finch walk off as he is back on the team under his own terms.
