How does one say “no” to The Machine? (Does one?)

Person of Interest‘s Harold Finch (played by Michael Emerson) is met with that quandary in this Tuesday’s episode (CBS, 10/9c), when Root (Amy Acker) pays a visit to the new “Batcave” (spartan as it is) to ask a favor on behalf of Her.

What exactly does The Machine need of her onetime master? Though Root is able to reveal very little in the above sneak peek, I can tease that it involves, among other things, a weapon of significant size. (But to what end?)

Elsewhere in the episode, Fusco goes undercover as a poor schlub in need of a professional “wingman” AKA the latest POI.
