Sneak Peak #1 POI Q&A – ‘Welcome to Nerd Nirvana’
In this first sneak peek for Person of Interest season 4, Q&A, a moonlighting Detective Riley is working as a security guard for ‘Fetch and Retrieve’, the search engine Harold Finch uses most. John escorts the company’s newest consultant, Professor Harold Whistler, to meet with the head of the company. John tells Harold, “Welcome to Nerd Nirvana” in a displeased tone. Perhaps John Reese is accustomed to more formal computer geeks than the playful youngsters throwing balls indoors a colorful and bright office building. Harold compliments John by saying Search and Retrieve only hires exceptional talent like John. Does Harold sense John’s unease with the plan? In either case, John deflects the comment by throwing a limited edition action figure in the air thus forcing Harold to fetch and retrieve it.
Harold of course is impressed with the search engine and reminds John that his boss, Calvin Mazer, the man coming up the hall, is incredibly gifted and resourceful. Harold sounds like an admirer. While John Reese looks a bit lost and exasperated especially when Mazer and Harold start getting cozy over A.I. algorithms. Could this interest in Artificial Intelligence be a link to Samaritan?
Perhaps John is worried about Harold going undercover while Reese works to uncover the reason they were given the Number of a Ann Mueller a Munich immigrant who works as a transcriber at the company. Harold seems curious about the company and not worried. He tells John they are about to find out what Anna is working on.
Overall, this looked a lot like Booked Solid’s opening to me. John Reese anxious about Harold being exposed in their operation, no longer safe at headquarters. While Harold is overly enthusiastic, he tries to reassure John. It looks like old school POI meets high tech industry.
