What can you tease about the Person of Interest finale? — Lisa
ADAM: Executive producer Jonathan Nolan promises that Reese and Finch’s nemesis Root (Amy Acker) may finally have her day with Shaw (Sarah Shahi). The bad news: Our team of heroes may not be equipped to handle to the fallout. “We are going to see something from Fusco’s past come back that becomes very divisive among our guys,” executive producer Greg Plageman teases. “It becomes an interesting point of conflict in whether our characters can ever actually move past that.” Adds Nolan: “We’re trying to avoid the idea that they always save everybody all the time,” Nolan says. “This is not a season that necessarily ends well for anybody… If that’s what folks are looking for, they’re going to be disappointed.”
Awesome news – Sarah is BACK on person of interest next week!
