Person of Interest 4×07 Honor Among Thieves – Promo

 

SHAW RISKS BEING DETECTED BY SAMARITAN WHEN SHE JOINS AN INTERNATIONAL TEAM OF THIEVES TO MONITOR THE LATEST POI, ON “PERSON OF INTEREST,” TUESDAY, NOV. 11

Honor Among Thieves” – Shaw joins a team of international thieves in order to keep tabs on the latest POI, but an unexpected turn of events puts her in danger of being detected by Samaritan.  Also, Finch and Root undertake a dangerous sabotage mission.

 

Sometimes I wonder how far in advance The Machine sees bits and pieces that could indicate a POI may become a victim or perpetrator. Before Greer and Decima succeeded in their plans to get Samaritan on-line, The Machine gave the team so many numbers in advance that they had many chances to stop it from ever happening. Maybe it was purely a coincidence that Sameen Shaw became a wheel-man for a band of petty thieves, but now that she joins a team of international thieves in Person of Interest, Honor Among Thieves, I sincerely doubt Sameen and Romeo’s orchestrated meeting by The Machine was anything but coincidental. We don’t know yet if the POI is going to be the perpetrator but Shaw’s secret cover identity as an amateur thief would certainly allow her to get on the inside without too much suspicion. So did The Machine see something months ago? Also with the exception of John everyone’s new cover identities do not appear to have just been picked at random. There is some reason for John being in the NYPD, I don’t believe we have seen it yet.

 

Back to the episode, Sameen Shaw is the man woman for the job. As for falling for the POI….well probably not anymore than she fell for the number when she and Reese attended their high school reunion. Shaw plays the role of her cover really well including a bit of starry eyed female around handsome males. As for the actual thievery, I wonder since Samaritan hasn’t seemed to put observing crime at the top of its watch list, what attracts its attention to the team of thieves? Is it what they have stolen or is it something they try to steal? What is this unexpected turn of events?

 

As for the sabotage mission Root and Finch are involved in, neither the promotional photos nor the video promo released by CBS gives us the slightest clue what that could be. With Shaw having attracted Samaritan’s attention, is their mission some effort to save their team member or a completely unrelated attack against the other AI. Am I the only one feeling the gap between the the team’s involvement with crime related numbers, even innocent ones like Walter Dang, and the team’s Cold War battle with Samaritan and Decima is closing?
