Then it's time for Mark to watch Person of Interest. friends with Detective Stills and how that then transformed into a relationship with HR. Reese, we didn't find out this part of Fusco's backstory until the end of season two. In the Person of Interest series finale, John Reese (Jim Caviezel) died “When we meet Reese in the pilot, he's in extremis and is going to hurl The pilot begins with this relationship between these two guys, and Finch “So, the symmetry in the end of having Reese saving Finch, for us, was very moving. Despite one of Person of Interest's best features being its the leg when we were least expecting it with a wallop of an ending. .. I loved this episode, the relationship between Carter and Fusco evolves into a real friendship.
Yet I only recently noticed how infrequent it is for me to experience this same dissonance as I watch Person of Interest. I am not used to American shows relying so heavily on the reality of police corruption and brutality to drive their stories.
Practically every cop on this show aside from Carter and Szymanski is dirty. I need more, first of all, because this show is so deeply serialized that I may not be able to see the forest for the trees.
This episode finally flashes back to reveal how he became friends with Detective Stills and how that then transformed into a relationship with HR. Take it from me, who grew up amidst the trillion LAPD scandals like Rampart, or who watched the Oakland Police Department crumble under ethical nightmare after ethical nightmare the last ten years.
But he killed people. Do we even know? How many people did he murder, knowing he could pin their deaths on any number of factors like race, poverty, drug use, gentrification?
Indeed, the show seems to love reminding the audience how fucked up these people are! HR is still getting away with it. How can they ever take down an organization who can frame anyone at any time? Who works so counter to fairness and justice?
That's just common sense. We've seen Carter tested before, but it doesn't get much more serious than digging up a dead cop's body to save Fusco's ass.

However, it looked like Carter had a bit of extra motivation. Before she left, she handed Fusco Cal Beechman's file, which tells me that Fusco will have to scratch her back by using his contacts and finding out who set up Cal.
That could put Fusco face-to-face with Quinn and set up the next phase of the HR story. This week's person of interest was Dr. Richard Nelson Dennis Boutsikaris who accidentally got involved with the worst kind of people in the world: And the episode literally lined up suspects immediately, with fancy dressed white guys waiting for him after his acceptance speech for his Professor Emeritus award, leading to that sense that "In Extremis" would be just another filler episode.
There's not a lot to cover here; Nelson became a target for an investment group after the Securities and Exchange Commission learned recent profitable stock dealings by the money-makers stemmed from an info leak, which inadvertently came from Nelson.
Thinking if the leak was plugged the investigation would hit a dead end, the investment group set out to kill Nelson. And they chose a particularly nasty, inefficient, and unnecessarily prolonged murder method in radiation poisoning.
Why not push him in front of a bus or, I don't know, shoot him? What really stood out about Nelson's story was that once again, Reese and Finch did not save the person of interest. Nelson kicked it with some fancy Scotch in his hand, always knowing that he was a goner. In fact, Finch notes that not saving their number "seems to be a common occurrence of late" as The Computer gets them information too slowly. There's something wrong with The Machine, and a convenient Virus Meter on Finch's desktop showed that The Machine is overrun with viruses uploaded by the mysterious Decima Technologies.

We're all going to die! This leaves us in an incredible spot to wrap up the second season as the stakes are higher than they've ever been. The Machine has been bricked, Carter dug up a dead cop, Fusco needs to face HR, and Bear needs to go to the doggy wash.
However, Reese and Finch don't appear to be in immediate danger.
I can't wait to find out! I love how he's become an asset to Reese and Finch, and it makes sense. Elias is always going to work with the people who benefit him most, and right now, that's Reese and Finch. There's great respect for each other, and a sense that as long as their business doesn't interfere with the other's, they'll leave each other alone.

Nelson quoted the Greek philosopher with, "Knowledge is the food of the soul," but it was his knowledge that ultimately got him killed. Quinn, at Beecher's funeral, recited Plato's, "He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.
Or maybe Plato wasn't that good of a philosopher at all. I guess it was nice to see him reconcile, but it had to be developed so quickly that all the writers could resort to were cornball lines like, "It was another mistake, but the one I didn't make was having a daughter," and "The thing I'm most proud of is you.
