I'm super excited they brought Shaw on full time as part of the team. When I seen the 1st episode she was in, I said right then, it would be awesome if she joined the cast full-time. They needed another girl & a bada$$ like Shaw fulfilled the team. Put it this way, this not like all the cop dramas u see on TV, this show has its own unique storyline. If you like action, drama, and suspense then you're going to love this show. IT TRULY IS AMAZING and if you've given it enough thought to read the reviews then it's definitely worth it to watch. You will not be disappointed.
Reese mostly takes a back seat as there's deliberate focus on developing the female cast. There's fun in watching Det. Carter go rogue. The nihilistic former cyber-foe Root and clinical psychopath Sameen Shaw are now series regulars and serve as the show's wild cards and nab many opportunities to whoop butt and also tantalize 'shippers. There's so much to love about P.O.I. The large scale worldbuilding. The serpentine plots. The constant flirting with our emotions and subverting our expectations. The sci-fi cyberpunk aspects. The dark humor (most of the cast are masters of the wry one-liner). The many kickass action beats. The ever evolving characters, particularly the unpredictable Root and the spitfire Shaw. P.O.I. remains very topical as its key premise addresses serious concerns about government surveillance and the perversion of the citizen's right to privacy. If I had a gripe it's that we need more Bear. And where's Leon Tao and Zoe?
Season 3 features several watershed episodes. My favorites are (and also a plot SPOILERS alert):
- Episode 3 - "Lady Killer" - Strictly for Root's badass exit strategy from the insane asylum.
- Episode 5 - "PA3ROBOP" (a.k.a. "Razgavor") - Shaw must safeguard a little girl sought by Russian gangsters. This episode delves into Shaw's past and delivers sly nods at Terminator 2.
- Episode 6 - "Mors Praematura" - The Machine deploys two different teams for what turns out to be the same mission. Root abducts Shaw and this lends to some awesome moments.
- Episodes 8, 9, 10 - "Endgame," The Crossing" & "The Devil's Share" - A stunning three-part tale of loss, revenge, and redemption. Savor this arc for Johnny Cash's haunting version of "Hurt," for a core character's farewell arc and the culmination of the HR storyline, for Reese's scorched earth approach, and for Fusco's speech and Elias's speech.
- Episode 13 - "4c" - This is about as funny as P.O.I. allows itself to be. While enroute to Istanbul to drown his sorrows, Reese's international flight plan is diverted to Italy by the Machine. Lots of lone-man-against-unknown-assailants-while-on-a-plane action. I got the giggles when Reese passed himself off as an agent of International Homeland Security. The only down side to this ep is that Samm Lavine's d0rky web designer comes off as a weak version of Leon Tao.
- Episode 15 - "Last Call" - Harold poses as a 911 dispatcher even as an unknown mastermind infiltrates New York City's emergency call center. This episode spawns a new arch-villain that sounds disturbingly like the Moviefone guy. We'll see this guy again, maybe in Season 4.
- Episode 16 - "Ram" - A terrific come-full-circle episode, the "Relevance" of Season 3. In 2010 another Man in the Suit is on Harold Finch's payroll and his approach is juuuust a bit different from Reese's.
- Episode 17 - "/" or "Root Path" - The cyborgization of Root? Or the humanization of Root? Either way, this episode is Root-centric.
- Episode 19 - "Most Likely To..." - Shaw and Reese attend a Class of '94 high school reunion and get embroiled in a decades-old murder mystery, and if you can't see the potential for fun in that...
- Episode 21 - "Beta" - The Machine produces the latest number - Grace Henrdricks (Carrie Preston), Finch's former fiancée (and Michael Emerson's real life wife). Loved this for Preston's wonderful performance and the fleshing out of her character.
