Reese and Finch will need all the help they can get with their latest number, a young woman by the name of Caroline Turing, whose specialty as a therapist is to counsel high powered clients who expect and require complete discretion. They quickly learn that she is the intended victim as Fusco informs them that HR has entered into a lucrative contract funded by an unknown person or organization to take her out.

Did You Know?


At one point Mr. Reese says, "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not trying to kill you." This is similar to a well-known quote from author Joseph Keller (in "Catch 22"): "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you." See more »


When Finch has activated the program that blocks all unauthorized access to the cell phone towers it is stated that only one number is authorized. That number belongs to Finch. However minutes later we see Carter and Fusco both using their cell phones. While Fusco is calling Finch which could be authorized, Carter calls Reese who is not authorized. We have not seen the program being switched off in the intervening time. See more »

Caroline Turing: Isn't that what we want?
John Reese: I haven't stolen it yet!

John Reese: Follow me. Change of plans.
Caroline Turing: You said you'd tell me when to panic. I'm guessing now's the moment.

In one word - Brilliant.

Greetings from Lithuania.

This was definitely the best season ending in many moons. And i mean i like watching TV shows, saw a lot of them, and "Person of Interest" is one of my favorites, actually, my favorite for now.

And when it came to the last episode of the season, it was soooo intense and breathtaking that i couldn't take my eyes of screen. What an episode! I won't going to spoil anything, just going to say, that if you enjoyed this show so far, you will be in nirvana watching "Firewall".

This is how to end the season! Two big thumbs up! A must see to everyone, and "Firewall" should be used as an example on other networks as a perfection of writing, acting, editing and directing of an episode.
