Once again I've updated the POI Character relationship chart for last week's episode. This update features the inclusion of Finch's former fiance Grace Hendricks.
There's certainly plenty to be explored between these two, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how things play out. One thing that seems obvious now that we have timeframes to work with is that Finch left Grace before he had spinal fusion surgery 1-2 years ago. To refresh your memory if needed, he bumped into Reese for the first time (that we have seen) while he was still in a wheelchair in hospital. Reese was on a mission to find his lost love Jessica at the time
It also seems apparent that Finch had the machine at a stage of remarkable intelligence a year before 'Day 1', which in my mind creates a large gap between that day where Ingram & Finch were on the waterfront in 2004, to the time when it was delivered in 2009. Plenty could have happened in that 5 year timeframe.
Another thing that crossed my mind is that Finch must have had his own back door into the machine from at least 2006. Why?? Because Finch had that alert which notified him of Grace's presence in 2006, and he still has it today. In addition, Ingram programmed his own back door, it seems, before delivery in 2009. It's an incredibly intricate back story, with virtually endless possibilities
This chart is a real jigsaw now, it takes a lot of time to move the parts around and create spaces for new lines and connections. I'm still managing not to put any lines in that cross over other lines, but I suspect the time will come when that just cannot be sustained any longer
As usual, keep clicking until the image gets to full size. The chart is also viewable on the Person Of Interest section of my website, www.seriesmonitor.com as usual. It's normally on my site a couple of days earlier than it is on SpoilerTV for those who want to see it super quickly
The next update might feature the dog, Bear, if he has a part to play at some stage
