What I’m Watching: Person of Interest

Person of Interest: Season 2, Episode 10 “Shadow Box” (B+)

The walls are closing in on Reese as Carter gets approached by Donnelly about joining the FBI with the express purpose of locating and taking down the man in the suit. I suppose it took both Fusco and Carter a while to accept the fact that Reese and Finch were trying to do the right thing while operating outside of the boundaries of the law, and therefore trying to explain what they were doing to someone like Donnelly rather than keeping him entirely in the dark probably wouldn’t work so well. Reese staying in the vault to ensure that Abby and Shane could get away was noble, and it’s a good thing that he wasn’t the only man in a suit apprehended. I’m sure he’ll find some way to wiggle out, with Carter’s help, no doubt. Having her at the FBI would prove useful, presuming that Fusco is able to get everything in order with all the HR business. It’s unfortunate to learn that Beecher is in league with HR, and it’s hard to deny his involvement after Fusco witnessed his meeting with Quinn. He really needs to open up to Finch and Reese about Simmons, who has his sights set on Fusco with an eye to making him take the fall for everything. It was fun to see Finch have the opportunity to ride on the back of a motorcycle, and it’s really quite entertaining to see him thrive when he’s initially nervous and completely out of his element.
