You didn't catch on to the fake cop? OMG, he stuck out like a sore thumb. It was also obvious that the nurse was "in on it." I do agree that the episode was excellent however.

For those two observations you cite, I thought the episode was way below par for the series. I did enjoy "Miles" in his recurring role as Mr Tao though. I miss "Sawyer".

I got suspicious when he was getting yelled at, but then I assumed his ID got checked and I let it go. I caught on to the nurse. I thought someone in that room had to be reporting what was happening. This episode was a lot better than last weeks. I hope they don't have anymore shows that boring. This one opened up more cans of worms for shows to come.

To myself the cop was obvious, the nurse, not so much. MI:6-dude was good; disappeared and only Reese knows he exists.

Still a very good show, though for me, this last episode had way too much of the patently preposterous in the story - such as the whole operating room setup.  The lack of concern over sterility (glasses, cell phone, etc) and the entire staff just walks out on orders from the surgeon and they are left alone with a donor/patient for a long time...sorry, a bit much.  Still, I grant this show a lot of leeway as I really like it for the most part.  Good to see Bear get a little more exposure and the addition of a couple more back story parts that are obviously meant to return (the new baddie and the old baddie-lady).  I also like the added dry humor they stick into the dialogue more and more now.  "look at it, its' all...squishy"  Good stuff.

Nothing to assume there.  We know it's his old CIA handler chick as we saw her adjusting the bomb strapped to Snow's chest a couple episodes ago.  She's the one pulling the strings.

Anyone know what the title of the song was that played in the very last scene in tonight's episode? Nov 29
I think I've heard it before in one of the "Bourne Identity" sequels.

Edit: I found the title to this song.
It's "Extreme Ways" by Moby

Actually, I believe it was Moby ❝ One of These Mornings ❞ .

I liked it a lot. Lots of funny lines and still an interesting story.

Too way over the top contrived for me, especially the sudden reconciliation. Bottom quartile of otherwise excellent series episodes.

I think that's the thing that sets this show apart. There's always a few lines in every episode that make me smile/chuckle. Some of the jokes are more funny if you've been watching their relationships for some time.

Watching Finch walk the Doggie on a leash around his desk was a Hoot. John kind of got his Butt kicked last night, twice... Always entertaining...

Yes, as we reach the cold of winter, the heat of love was in the air all around on this episode - Harold and Grace, Lionel and Rhonda, (soon to be) Carter and Beecher, even the Drakes (the perps who had hits on each other) rekindled their passion.

I'm just waiting for Bear to get his love interest. biggrin.gif

What about John? How about Zoe? They've already 'played house' together. tongue.gif

I had the captions on, and they specifically mentioned title and artist when the song came on. I forget which title it said, but it was provided. Captions often do this, which I like.

Need 'em when watching Brit stuff on Masterpiece Theater et. el. They do a very good job translating the speech to English.

I continue to enjoy Person of Interest. It manages to successfully combine lighthearted fun with terrific action. Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel are always terrific and the show uniformly employees excellent guest stars. In this week's show, I especially enjoyed Mark Pelligrino and the still beautiful Francie Swift as the not so loving couple trying to have each other killed. There is no substitute for talent.

Maybe I missed it but I don't remember anyone getting thrown thru a window.

They didn't. DARN! Some bad guys fell down some steps after Carter shot them though. Does that count?

I loved the look on John's face when they all went to the couples brownstone to wait for the bad guys. He knew he was going to have fun. The nail gun was a good substitute. Just nail your opponent to the floor! I also liked the comment made, John - "Sorry about the mess in the kitchen." Women - "That's Ok. I didn't really like it."

This episode gives a new meaning to "Love and war."

I guess a forth re-do of the kitchen will be in order. biggrin.gif The husband was upset that the wife had already remodeled 3 times.

I am sure the scene in which John nailed one of the bad guy's feet to the floor with a nail gun made those who have seen The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy laugh out loud. It certainly had that effect on me.

It is nice that they do that with the captions. I used a cell phone app called MusicID to identify the track. Great app and it's never been wrong in all the time I've used it, one of the most useful apps I have on the phone. smile.gif

I actually use Shazam (with all the social media tools turned off, of course). I have several hundred CDs from the last few decades of collecting and they're all ripped into my computer. I played dozens of tracks and the program nailed even the most obscure ones. One or two needed a second try at listening to pick it up, but I was stunned at how accurate it was.

The only thing that tripped it up was a few songs from a 1984 disc of classical music themes from various classic movies performed by the London Philharmonic. Most notably, it failed to recognize the theme to "Lawrence of Arabia". I'll chalk that up to it not being the actual sound tracks.

However, it nailed every classic TV theme I threw at it from just about the beginning of TV along with tons of obscure studio recordings of music that hasn't seen the light of day in decades. It also had no trouble with some classical music albums I once bought in a bargain rack at a grocery store. It even sorted out remixes of songs, parodies and it managed to identify "The Hamsterdance Song" when I pointed my computer at their web site.

I haven't heard of Shazam, I'll give it a try, thanks!

Not to mention one of the Lethal Weapon movies where Danny Glover shot nails into the assailants back. eek.gif

But as anyone who has ever used a nail gun knows, it's next to impossible for a nail gun to shoot nails into the air. But it's just TV so it doesn't matter....

I wonder if Finch was involved with this . . .

It depends on how easy it is to disable the safety on a particular nail gun.

I know plenty of construction guys that do so because having to press the tip down exactly right for every shot slows them down.

It still makes it tough to actually shoot someone more than a few inches away, though, since most modern guns deliberately cause the nail to tumble once it leaves the chamber unless it's driving into something before the head clears the gun tip.
