If-Then-Else

 Person of Interest – 4×11 “If-Then-Else” – Extended Promo

 

SAMARITAN LAUNCHES AN ATTACK ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE, FORCING THE TEAM TO LAUNCH A DESPERATE MISSION, ON “PERSON OF INTEREST.”

 “If-Then-Else” – Samaritan launches a cyber-attack on the stock exchange, leaving the team with no choice but to embark on a possible suicide mission in a desperate attempt to stop a global economic catastrophe.

In the last episode of Person of Interest Season 4—The Cold War—before the mid-season break, Samaritan tried to draw out The Machine at first by showing how benevolent it could be by running the city efficiently and aiding the police getting criminals off the street, even doing TM’s job handling irrelevant numbers. Doing it so well, even Shaw thought it was a good thing; regardless that Samaritan was also handing out death sentences.

When that didn’t work, The Machine refusing Samaritan’s invitation to talk, Samaritan showed how merciless it can be—turning people against people, allowing crime to now run rampant the with release of some digital information not meant to be seen. When The Machine agreed to talk, Root and a young boy met, the interfaces of both AI. Samaritan, arrogant and cocky, vowed to destroy The Machine using threats against the lives of The Machine’s assets if it did not acquiesce to its inevitable destruction. Of course The Machine could not do this; Samaritan would still seek to kill its human assets and destroy humanity as we know it, the bad as well as the good.

In the first episode of the New Year and the second in the Trilogy—If-Then-Else—Samaritan begins its plan to restructure humanity, ruining the global economy by hacking into the stock exchange. Of course our heroes and The Machine have to do what they can to stop the catastrophe even if it amounts to a possible suicide mission.

In this extended promo everyone appears to die in some way. We all may panic but deep down we know not everyone can die allowing Samaritan to win. This is not my speculation, but others believe that The Machine is running scenarios what could result. IF we do this THEN this will occur, ELSE this happens. When the Team does go in The Machine has a plan implemented that will succeed without losing any of its assets. We hope.
