Just finished my umpteenth re-watch of Person of Interest and decided to follow it up with watching Westworld (by POI creator Jonathan Nolan) and Reverie (starring Shaw/Sarah Shahi). Decided to come up with a bonkers head cannon theory that those and The Gifted (starring Root/Amy Acker), because why not?
Westworld was an amusement park in the past, then got bought out by the government as a potential recruiting and training ground for CIA, then ISA agents on behalf of Control. The more psycho you are in Westworld, the more likely you are to be an assassin. Then when Samaritan was being destroyed by the Machine, a copy of Samaritan’s core code was left behind in Westworld and funneled into the androids. Jimmi Simpson’s Logan Pierce was sent in by The Machine undercover to figure out what was going on in the park. (I’ve only watched Westworld 101-102 so this post will need updating).
Edit: just finished 104, a character called something “The Good Samaritan Reflex.” Try not to hear “Samaritan” in Finch’s voice.
On Reverie, Shaw is given a new ID by The Machine to go undercover and investigate the burgeoning new artificial intelligence created to help people live in a virtual world. Is this third ASI going to be an ally or a nemesis. (I’ve only watched through Reverie 103, so again, this may need updating).
Finally, The Gifted is not actually real, but a simulation designed by The Machine to see what it would be like to be a human and a mother. She’s projected her “superpowers” onto all of the other inhabitants of her simulation so she can blend in and be normal instead of an all-seeing eye. (I watched The Gifted S1)
Hopefully someone enjoys my Wednesday-morning, Monster-Energy-fueled post.
The number Harold gave Shaw in her first episode led to a voicemail of Harold "Wren" saying he's out of the office and not available. I always used to call that number to test if my cell service worked, or how well it did. I just swapped to a new phone and it is now disconnected. End of an era :(
EDIT: Era restarted, it looks like it works again, whoops- UH I MEAN #ReeseLives
there was a conversion over the phone with root and john about cyrus wells (is that how his name is written ?) anyway she says to john "whatever happens I'll be there to save him just like i was there to save you" so when did she save john i don't recall her saving him ever ?
So I'm an accounting major and am taking a financial fraud class at school. One of our assignments is to write up a short few paragraphs about the financial fraud techniques used in an episode or movie. One of the shows the Professor mentioned as an example was Person of Interest, my favorite show I have seen each episode of twice at least. But for the life of me I can't think of an episode that had enough financial fraud worth talking about. Which ones come to mind for you guys? Best I got so far was S02E18 "All In."
