Person of Interest 4×05 Prophets – CBS extended promo

 

THE TEAM MUST PROTECT A POLITICAL POLLSTER WITH A GIFT FOR NUMBERS WHO IS UNAWARE THAT HIS OWN NUMBER HAS JUST COME UP, ON “PERSON OF INTEREST,” TUESDAY, OCT. 21>
Jason Ritter Guest Stars as Pollster Simon Lee

 

“Prophets” – Finch is suspicious when a gifted political pollster’s number comes up at the same time that his typically ironclad predictions go wrong, and believes that the two events are linked. Meanwhile, Reese is sidelined by a direct order from Captain Moreno.

 

The last two episodes were number related. While the numbers had nothing to do with Samaritan, the two kids with the stolen drug money and the professional ‘wingman’ were all victims of dealings in some way with the new villain of the season, Dominic. The surveillance was mainly from the Machine and in Brotherhood we saw a bit of Samaritan’s.

 

Now with, Prophets, we are seeing what may be the first battle in the war to defeat Samaritan. The number is a political pollster whose life is in danger from Martine the terminator like asset of Samaritan. We don’t know why Samaritan has sent her to kill the pollster (Jason Ritter), but whatever reason it is,  there is something else happening. Votes have come up missing and from the promo one of the elected candidates has possibly been poisoned.

 

I don’t believe The Machine actually ordered the killing of the congressman to keep Samaritan from coming on-line; it left it up to its human assets to decide what to do. So as The Machine left it up to humans to make to the choice to kill to prevent Samaritan from coming into existence, I don’t think Samaritan is going to let humans decide if it is allowed to survive. From the promo I think it’s killing anyone who might be a threat and is sending its Root counterpart to carry out its orders.

 

Are Root and Martine the prophets of their respective gods?
