The new Number is an old man, Lou Mitchell, who blows thousands of dollars each week while gambling at a New Jersey casino. While Finch and Reese try to work out how Lou does it, and why he's in danger, Carter helps a fellow detective framed by HR.
Finch knows that winning big means betting big, and it's still clear that Person of Interest is worth betting on. "All In" divided the episode into two stories, allowing Reese, Finch and Leon to worry about a former card shark going up against a casino boss, while Carter was digging her way into the conspiracy that is the rebuilding corrupt police force known as HR.

He tells Finch that he's saved Leon, who... more

Reese 1.0 For an episode that takes place almost entirely in another time frame, "RAM" uses very few new characters. The most notable of the ones they do introduce is Mr. Dillinger, Finch's partner before Reese. He's a pretty big jackass. Unlike Reese, he p... more
The good news: Person of Interest is back! The bad news: Root is not. Bear is also missing from this week's episode, "Last Call," so I'd like to think that they're having some bonding time. Root could use a friend who doesn't periodically institutionalize her. The Dangers of Outdated Technology The Machine gives the number of Sandra Nicholson, a 911 call center operator. Finch goes undercover as a coworker and is impressed by San... more
