Person of Interest – The Person of Interest Trilogy (Preview)
SAMARITAN SHOWS ITS TRUE POWER BY TAKING CONTROL OF NEW YORK FOR 48 HOURS IN AN ATTEMPT TO LURE THE MACHINE OUT OF HIDING, ON “PERSON OF INTEREST,” TUESDAY, DEC. 16
“The Cold War” – Samaritan shows its power by erasing crime from the city for a day in an attempt to force The Machine out of hiding.
CBS released this promo today. Only it’s not just for the episode next Tuesday, The Cold War, but a three part event, Trilogy, culminating in January with the episodes If-Then-Else and Control Alt Delete. The storm is raging, AI war, criminal war. So much for our team to surmount. How can five go against an army, an AI, and its Admin whose ultimate goal is to eradicate them and TM?
I was right about one thing, the ensuing chaos. I am in doubt about how Samaritan erases crime, but still want to believe that misdemeanors to felonies are still occurring, just nothing can be used to see or hear the lawlessness happening, no one can report it, no one can act on it. (There is no mention of Dominic or The Brotherhood but I can see them escalating their own war when criminal activity begins to spiral out of control as the three part event continues.)
And now after seeing the promo, Samaritan taking control of the city means controlling everything. Transportation, traffic control, communications, anything and everything Samaritan can seize to cause panic and hysteria among the masses. Samaritan wants to draw out The Machine, Greer wants to draw out its agents. With a city in peril, with lives at stake, the purpose of TM and its assets to save whatever, whomever they can is only a weakness to be used as bait.
What Greer and his AI consider to be a failing, may just be TM and our team’s greatest strength. I just wonder who may or if anyone gives their all in this battle. And I want to shake my fist at TPTB of Person of Interest to stretch this out over long agonizing weeks.
Person of Interest Trilogy begins Tuesday Dec. 16 10/9c
