A House Divided

Person of Interest 3.22 – A House Divided – Extended Promo


In Person of Interest, Beta, the team has saved Grace Hendricks (Carrie Preston), at the cost of losing Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) to Decima. As Harold walks towards Decima’s men Reese (Jim Caviezel) tells Finch to keep alive, they’ll come for him. In the coming episode ‘A House Divided‘ the team has truly been separated from each other. While getting Finch back is Reese and Shaw’s (Sarah Shahi) main objective, they will still do what they can to stop the loss of innocent lives. That remains their mission.


When an unknown entity prevents The Machine from seeing the full picture of an impending catastrophic event, it sends the team five separate numbers to help them piece together the bigger picture.


When I first read this in the press release, I thought Vigilance. But why find a way to leak information about Northern Lights to end government surveillance on its citizens then stage a terrorist attack? For all its extremist tactics Collier and Vigilance think they are doing the right thing. Killing hundreds or thousands of innocent people is beyond even them. The outcry for the government to do something could possibly result in more surveillance not less. The extended preview sure makes it look like they are trying to shut down everything, cell phones, surveillance cameras, etc. , but I still have my doubts the unknown entity is in fact Vigilance.


I am just afraid in all the chaos of Vigilance outing Northern lights and the government shutting down the program, along with Greer’s plans to make Samaritan fully operational by tricking Senator Garrison to get the government to consider going with Samaritan as it’s next line of national defense, getting a limited beta testing period which has now ended and now leaving no line of defense, and now Vigilance latest battle against government surveillance, an unknown third party is taking advantage of no warning system, no anything,  for a terrorist attack of some kind.


And what does Greer really want of Finch? If he wanted Harold out of the way his men would have killed him just as ruthlessly as they were ordered to kill Shaw, Reese and Root. Was not telling Grace the truth about Harold being alive and having had lied to her the time she knew him a courtesy extended to Finch in order to use him for something? Looks like Finch is warning Greer that even something as powerful as his Machine could decide humans needed to be eradicated. I don’t think Harold actually believes that even after it ‘freed’ itself The Machine would do that. An no, even if the Machine was expecting the team to kill that congressman,  it was to save lives. So what is Harold trying to do? Who threw the black hood over Finch’s head. Why do I believe Vigilance captured him and Greer?


And what does Root (Amy Acker) plan to do with those servers? Will the Machine use them somehow to make itself better, or will Groves and her team of hackers send those servers back to Decima with their own Trojan Horse inside? When the last two episodes of Person of Interest, A House Divided and Deus Ex Machina have aired will Decima and Vigilance be stopped? And what or who is waiting to see how this ends. Another foe for Reese, Finch, Shaw, Fusco and Root? And will we lose another member of the team?
