Person of Interest 4×05 Prophets Promotional Photos
Person of Interest season 4 episode five, Prophets, is shaping up from what I have seen to be the first battle in the war against Samaritan. The number the team has bent sent to protect, pollster Simon Lee (Jason Ritter), is also a number Samaritan’s asset, Martine, has been sent to eliminate. Since pollsters are fairly accurate in predicting political election outcomes, does Simon become suspicious when the candidate he predicts to win loses? Does he start checking into things Samaritan wants to hide? Is that why Martine tries to kill him?
In the sneak peek for Prophets released at the New York Comic Con we see an epic shoot-out between the two agents—Root, Martine—of the opposing AIs, The Machine and Samaritan. The Machine tells Root she has to engage in this battle alone or they all will die. I don’t think her death is eminent but I can’t see how Root will be able to hide from Samaritan like the others after this.
Whatever happens, it looks like the pollster’s life is in the hands of Finch, Shaw, and Root this time around. John may have to stay out of this one, sidelined by his new boss. (I doubt it will keep him away. In the photos below he is at a crime scene; no doubt it has to do with the danger Simon is in.) Regardless from the promotional photos we see, Finch and the ladies of the team are the ones tasked with protecting the POI, Simon Lee.
