In Season 2 we find out that it tried to but the dark secret is that Finch is an illegal alien and had no social security # so it couldn't.

Because he's already dead.

Wondered the same thing.

I thought Finch's friend/partner (can't remember his name) started to put in a backdoor in a flashback after Finch left.

Based on the last five minutes of the finale it seems the machine may be corrupted in some way. Reese tells it "He (Finch) has been working for you." The way I understood it before that the machine worked for Finch. Of course maybe the Machine has some grand plan to bring all of it's enemies together so it can get rid of them all at once.

ComicCon 2012 Notes
'Person of Interest' Creator has 'Big Plans' for Amy Acker
By Michael O'Conell, The Hollywood Reporter's 'Live Feed' Blog - Jul. 14, 2012

Fans looking for answers about Person of Interest's cliffhanger finale at the CBS drama's Comic-Con panel did not squeeze much out of creator Jonathan Nolan and showrunner Greg Plageman -- but the duo were confident about bringing back a recent guest.

"We had a great experience with Amy Acker and we have big plans for her," said Nolan, when asked if she would be reappearing in the sophomore season.

And that shouldn't come as a huge shock. The Dollhouse and Happy Town actress made her first appearance in the May finale as a psychologist determined to be a potential crime victim by the Machine. It was later revealed that she was actually "Root," the faceless hacker introduced earlier in the season. The episode left off with her killing Alicia (Elizabeth Marvel) and kidnapping Finch (Michael Emerson).

The rest of the panel, veered from residual expressions of Lost adoration for Emerson to one poorly delivered Passion of the Christ question for Jim Caviezel (Reese). Both actors did insist, however, that their characters' Odd Couple dynamic keeps the series interesting.

"I think we're walking the razors edge pretty well so far," noted Emerson, drawing a "What he said" from Caviezel.

For pure humor, the standout of the Q&A was unarguably Taraji P. Henson (Carter). The actress hammed it up when explaining her new-found paranoia from working around surveillance equipment, and said she'd even consider taking up the show's brand of vigilantism "with the right gun."

Henson also managed to sum up the tight-lipped writers' room in one well-received sentence: "We have to be drunk to get stuff out of them."

Anybody ask or know the reason what intrigued Michael Emerson to chose to do Person of Interest? (Obviously, a good choice on his part! biggrin.gif) He had his pick of scripts based on his success with his Benjamin Linus character from Lost.

I don't know how many roles were offered to Emerson pre-POI .. he's really a character actor, not a leading man .. but I would venture to guess the money had something to do with it .. wink.gif

It took a few episodes for the writers or maybe just viewers like me to grow into this show. I came SO close to deleting the season's pass but I was desperate for at least one new show to watch. As the season wore on the plots and issues became more complex. Love the 2 main characters. Neutral on the cops. Amy is a great addition. Wonder if she's an agent of Wolfram & Hart?

At the TCA, the official CBS Person of Interest Twitter account tweeted the following overnight:
Quote:
"Absolutely. If Season 1 answered questions mostly about Reese's backstory, S 2 will answer more about Finch. http://t.co/YbHKDvqS #CBS2012"

"If a question is posed, it has to be answered, right? What happened to Taylor's father? Stay tuned... http://t.co/YbHKDvqS #CBS2012"

"Yes. Carter is a character we have yet to explore in FB -- & her dynamic with R&F has dramatically shifted. http://t.co/YbHKDvqS #CBS2012"

"These tweets are coming to you from Exec Producer Greg Plageman LIVE in the @CBS Connect Lounge at the TCAs! #CBS2012 #PersonOfInterest"

Finch's machine is real, and it's called TrapWire.
post #672 of 2035
I'm still waiting for rerun of the episode with the 6-month old baby as the POI to air. Still think it was the funniest episode (especially of Reese and Finch sharing baby-sitting duties biggrin.gif) of a very dark series.
post #673 of 2035
OMG! Saw a commercial, POI is coming back Sept. 27!

And I'm sure if they say they've stopped doing it, we don't need to worry. rolleyes.gif

Probably just gonna rely on drones from here on out. eek.gifmad.gif

HOLY CRAP! This episode is only half over and THIS episode IS DA BOMB! They have hit their stride!

Oh, I love the dog!
post #678 of 2035
Who says TV isn't educational and occasionally life saving? I'm buying a book of Dutch phrases in case I'm attacked by a vicious dog. Wonder if they work on neighbor's annoying yappy mini-poodle?
post #679 of 2035
Strong start to the season.
post #680 of 2035
great start to the season last night. I'm wondering if Finch is going to stay captive until sweeps, in the meantime Reese having to solve the crimes the computer generates on a weekly basis, with the help of the detectives.
And now we have the government guys from DC being the 3rd party involved (I thought the g-man bad-ass went down a little too quickly)

Look for an episode where the machine becomes completely disabled as Root uploads IOS 6 map software. Root is kinda hot.
post #682 of 2035
This show is really exceeding all my expectations! Love the direction it's taking!smile.gif
post #683 of 2035
I guess the show is realizing that Reese winning his fights is getting repetitive. So instead of showing us another one, they just cutaway, show a guy thrown out of the window and off they go...I had to laugh...though getting out of that warehouse situation would have been fun to watch.

The Nazi guy pretty much had Reese until Carter blew him up with the riot gun.

Nah, he was just resting...
post #686 of 2035
Maybe I'm in the minority but I thought last night's episode was terrible. Reese negotiating with the machine just doesn't make any sense. In the context of the show, I would even accept that Finch put in a failsafe to track himself and that the machine could search for him if he hadn't logged in in a while and the machine could notify Reese in some way. It would tell Reese either where Finch was or was last seen. But for the machine to be swayed by Reese's emotional appeals and then dribble out clues to the background of Root instead of just saying where Finch is/was makes no sense at all.

I won't even get into the fact that no casino in the world would let Finch win hundreds of thousands of dollars while obviously getting clues from a buzzing cell phone.

I wonder if the dog helped Reese? I was kind of confused as to why they didn't show more there.

I hope the dog, Bear, becomes a regular.

I enjoyed the Season 2 premiere. Although it was wildly over the top, I wasn't bothered by the phenomenon because it showed that the show is never, ever, going to take itself too seriously. I loved the way a couple of Reese's fights ended, one with one of the gad guys flying out of a window and another with Carter hitting a miscreant in the back with a round from a riot gun just as he is about to savagely beat Reese. Funny stuff, and it kept the length of the fight scenes from getting out of hand, which is always a Good Thing.
