Person of Interest - Episode 3.01 - Liberty - Review: Everything and Nothing Changes

If Person of Interest's premiere is a sign of what's to come, it suggested only one thing - very little has changed. Well, on the action and quotes fronts anyway. However, when you look at the characters, it's quite clear that many of them have changed since we last saw them in 'God Mode'.

Reese and Finch are probably the only two characters that are relatively the same as before. Their banter is continually flowing (although usually from Reese), mainly shown by the two scenes where Reese and Finch discuss Fleet Week, and when Reese introduces Finch to a boilermaker. Their hilarious discussions are a serious high point of the show, and I severely doubt that the level of banter will subside at any point in the near future.

Shaw's addition to the team, although preventing Finch from having to go out on missions, causes much of a problem for our favourite geek. Not only does she not carry a phone, but her ability to listen to her counterparts' instructions of not killing suspects has the potential to wane. Despite holding true to her word here, I doubt that she won't disobey orders in the future.

Brilliant to see that Fusco's ever changing mentality of not deciding whether or not he's working with the duo trio makes for interesting watching. His use as a mediocre human shield was a brilliant scene. Fortunately, his bomb-disarming skills are better than that of being a shield, otherwise he would have been blown to smithereens.

Carter's story is likely to result in serious consequences. Her demotion hasn't affected her determination to find the people behind HR, but her rescue of Elias may prove catastrophic for the quintet of crime fighters, the NYPD, and the entirety of New York. The reveal of Elias's bodyguard stealing the box from the Russians could lead to some deja vu style battles between Elias and the Russians.

It was somewhat confusing that neither Finch nor Reese even mentioned Root, despite her almost chilling scenes. Supposedly, she is in contact with the Machine, and that the two are having an argument. If it wasn't for the knowledge of previous episodes, I'd have agreed with the doctor's implied assessment that she is crazy. Her truth reveals form for an epic cliffhanger, one which we're not guaranteed a conclusion to next week.

I rather enjoyed this episode. Despite my anticipation for it having been trumped by other shows over the past few months, it didn't disappoint. A lot of storylines were set-up in this episode, and should make for a brilliant season. 9/10.
