Agree the shrink/John thing is boring. Would be much more interesting if the blonde girl from this week stuck around and took that role in relationship to John. Have a feeling at some point she will be taken away from him in a manner ala Carter was.

It depends on who you ask, as for the writers, they had to find a way to write around the actress's pregnancy.

That shrink relationship is probably going to be pivotal down the road. maybe the reason John gets spotted by Samaritan. Or she will be killed by Decima, etc. John's been saving people for 4 years. He needs to get some every now and then.

She told them before the season started about her pregnancy. They knew way in advance. I don't know which people wanted Shaw off the show. Never heard that. I did hear people upset when Taraji was killed (worked out for her) and those folks made it seem like Shaw took her spot without seeing that that cop stuff had run it's course. Fusco or Taraji had to go. To me the show jumped up another level when Shaw was first introduced in season 2.

There were several on here that didn't like Shaw's character and was hoping she'd be taken out, some rooted for that. Go back to some of last year's discussion in this topic.


I agree with the other person that said this show might be better served as a 13-episode series instead of 22.

Did anyone notice that the girl who got the passports etc. starting getting messages from "the machine", perhaps she is Sarah's replacement.

They have to do something. Only four more new episodes this season.

Or perhaps the machine has moved on when Root defied its commands and intervened with Harold's scheme.

To reiterate, we do not need John getting all moony, we need more bad guys flying out windows.

I thought they said, she was getting messages from Samaritan. If, from "the machine" that would be much more interesting.

I think in the final few seconds they showed root pointing out she got a message from the machine, I'll have to go back and look, and yes that would be more interesting.

Only 22 episodes per season, and they front-loaded a lot of the new episodes to September and October. So now we have a dearth of new episodes to finish the season and weeks between new episodes (things like March Madness and special programming get in the way too).

Exactly, but that doesn't make the breaks any less annoying though.

Carter couldn't keep sticking around as an ordinary cop. Either she needed to move on, be killed off, or she needed a new position. The writers obviously opted for killing her off, and that seems to have worked out okay. As for Fusco though, I'm actually a little bit disappointed in the move away from him. Granted, he's no super-spy or anything, but that was part of the appeal. He's the one "normal" guy around. For all his early faults, he really did get turned around. Keeping the original core of John, Harold, and Fusco together made sense to me. But, it seems I am in the minority on that point.

There's little doubt the relationship with the psychologist is going to go somewhere, it's just a matter of where that is. As for John having an intimate partner, Zoe Morgan seemed to fill that role quite nicely. She was a good match for John as an individual and for the team as an on-again, off-again partner. Despite not knowing about the machine, she has known about the John?Harold partnership almost since she met John and has never really been left in the dark. She gets what it is they do and has openly supported them in order to help them solve cases. Heck, she's even the one that alerted them to Root being after Harold. Being that she is a series regular on The 100, there is going to be little opportunity for her to be around much. I do hope, however; that she does not get completely discarded as a character.

There has been some gossip on whether or not there will be a season 5. POI was apparently (and still is as I write this) on the 'bubble' for renewal, although some web sites that speculate on renewal/cancellation of TV series seem to say the show will be renewed. It's wait and see for now.

If anyone has more up-to-date info, please post.

tv by the numbers says more likely to be renewed than canceled but he did not put it in the certain category

What is frustrating to us viewers is that The Machine knows if it's renewed and simply won't tell us

It has been confirmed that the show has been cancelled.
Spoiler!

I believe it's time to Overthrow VerticalScope..
and Bring Back Huddler!


It's a shame that in the end TCU's playoff chances all came down to this . . .
