Person of Interest Boss: Time-Shifting Episode Will 'Blow People's Minds'

Loading video...

The following will excite Person of Interest fans… if not put them quite on edge, in anticipation of the midseason trilogy’s “nanners” second installment (airing Tuesday at 10/9c).

When last we tuned in to the CBS drama, Greer — frustrated by The Machine’s refusal to bow before the “god” Samaritan — set in motion a broader-hitting attack, on the world financial markets. Meanwhile, Shaw slipped out of the Finchcave, even though her cover has been blown and she is again visible to Samaritan’s eyes.

In the exclusive featurette above, showrunner Greg Plageman, along with much of Team Machine, preview this Tuesday’s episode, “If-then-else,” in which we will learn “more about The Machine’s capabilities than ever before.” Plageman goes on to tease a “massive, cool, time-shifting episode that’s going to blow some people’s minds” — perhaps because, he warns, “something totally shocking happens.”

    Don’t kill Shaw. Please.

    • HAP says:

      Well, if IMDB is accurate, Sarah Shahi is listed in the cast of all the remaining episodes for this season.

      • Ryan says:

        You can’t rely on IMDB for this info. I’ve seen characters killed even though they were listed to appear in all 22 episodes.

    OMG! That looked crazy! Harold was shot!

    Cannot wait.

  4. jc says:

    I can’t wait for tomorrow.

  5. gcw07 says:

    I’m assuming the machine is running simulations on how to take out the other machine and these are what we will be seeing. So they can “kill off” all the main characters without really doing that.

    Is Sarah Sashi Pregnant

    • sarah j says:

      I asked the same thing last month. I am sure she is, she looks to have gained weight and they are having her wearing coats when she never used too and the fact that she was the one to be caught by Samartin makes me think yes she is.

    the.best.show on tv. period.

  8. ComeOn says:

    OMG! So they ALL going to ‘die’ in this episode?! Can’t wait!!!

    I’m convince the rating is down because it’s on too late and people would rather record it so they can rewind all these crazy scenes.

  9. meatwad says:

    One of the most underrated/underappreciated shows on television

  10. Rich Abey says:

    Holy hell! This is gonna blow our minds off!

  11. Quinn Mallory says:

    Should be very fun.

  12. JAO says:

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

  13. Shar says:

    Just don’t kill Bear. That’s all I ask.

  14. prish says:

    The husband is saying giving Reese a mundane police job is dragging the show down. In the husband’s opinion he should be doing covert stuff like Shaw, meaning some exciting stuff.

  15. stdeniaj says:

    Maybe the old prune face that fathered Samartin will grab his chest and go done soon. It would be interesting without his government contacts and extortions what might happen. Hope Finch survives for the dry wit & the interaction with Reese. Looks good and looking forward to it.

    • Linda W. says:

      Harold’s old friend invented Samaritan, not Greer. Although, it WAS Greer that stole Samaritan, brought it back to life and gave it great power.

  16. Holly says:

    Awesome. Can’t wait to see this episode tomorrow.

  17. Akhil Menon says:

    I have grown to like Jim Caviezel’s John Reese and Michael Emmerson’s Harold Finch. I f they die i will stop watching Person Of Interest.

  18. Kevin says:

    just don’t kill of Root she got to be the most interesting character on tv. So many layers to her. Love her and Amy Acker

  19. dan says:

    wow, can’t wait.

  20. puck says:

    I haven’t watched since Carter left. I’ll probably dvr, so I can fast forward the boring scenes.

  21. Girard says:

    Uh, spoilers folks. Not directly but if you watch you’ll get a pretty good feel for what the twist in the next episode is going to be. I won’t know for sure if I’m right for about 13 hours of course; but, I’m pretty sure I’m correct. So my advice? Don’t watch the teaser now, wait for the episode.

  22. dman6015 says:

    “We get to kill all our characters.” ~ Greg Plageman. That pretty much sums up the twist.

  23. Maryann says:

    Well, I guess I will be watching this live instead of on demand. The question is whether there is more potential for getting this one accidentally spoiled tomorrow or having Chicago Fire accidentally spoiled. I guess I will have to stay offline until I see both of them. Or did this article just give all the Person of Interest spoilers already? In my opinion they dropped some real shockers.

  24. Cc says:

    This is going to be insane. I can hardly wait! So excited!

  25. Wheels99 says:

    Please don’t kill Reese or Finch…or Bear!!

  26. Brandon says:

    Reese won’t die. I need, he got shot like 6 times a couple years back. He’s batman, he always comes back.

  27. mike says:

    Just watched it…. no spoilers..

    Have been on the edge of my seat for the entire hour…
    *I so want to spoil it but I can’t! !!*

  28. Amelia miele says:

    Th is show use to be great what happened to it did you change writers it’s starting to suck!!!

  29. Lynn says:

    Boring, boring show Jan. 6th. Stopped watching as it was repeat, after repeat of scenes.

    • Willstah says:

      Awww…simply put, you blew it!…kept me on the edge and once I caught the drift of how tonight’s episode was going to proceed, I simply was as tense as I can remember wth POI…no spoiler from me!

  30. Zqparker says:

    WOW…! One of the BEST shows I have ever seen ! Held my breath til the fade to black…Really looking forward to next week..!

  31. Debra Hylton says:

    Please don’t cancel, the best show on tv. Please don’t kill anyone else of the “good” guys. I have all dvd and watch every night in bed.

  32. Alex Au says:

    Don’t kill off Shaw…….

  33. Lennox says:

    No no no! Don’t kill Shaw!!!!

  34. Frannie says:

    The BEST episode yet…had me a couple of times! I love the cast and you can’t kill ANY of them! Losing Carter was the worst!! NO MORE! Love POI!! My favorite show on TV right now!

    So the producers thought they had to have ‘the kiss’? Not everyone is pleased with this. Was this supposed to satisfy the viewers’ lesbian interest in our two fine actresses. What if two male actors were to kiss? What would be the re-action then? Not as much I’ll bet! This juvenile position of the producers is alienating those who prefer actors and actresses who portray straight persons. If I wanted to watch a straight/gay program I would watch something else. Get back to the basics of the program and the machine for helping people. BTW, Sarah is taking time off to be with her new twins. Good for her. She has her priorities straight. No pun intended.
