Person Of Interest "Deus ex Machina" (Season Finale) Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk*

One of the reasons why I love this show so much is that once they finish a major story line, they either have another one going already or they have one ready to give us right after the fact. This is one of the season finales I looked forward to see the most because I knew it was gonna be epic and it did not disappoint me at all. It actually turned out to be my favorite season finale/cliffhanger out of all the ones I've seen this season.

John and Shaw search desperately to find the now kidnapped Harold and creepy lady and not to mention the Senator, etc. (everybody that was involved with the Machine basically) before something horrible happens to them on this trial that Peter has set up to let the whole world know what's been really going on.

Was Harold gonna be safe during all this? That was a surprise to me to learn that the creepy lady decided to try to keep Harold out of it as long as she could. Though, that couldn't work too long for anybody, it was a nice jester and one I'm still surprised on.

Peter is not fooling around with this trial, either and even if he could tell for just a minute, that the person was lying, he would shot them on the spot without hesitating and in front of everybody!

My question was during all of this, who is in charge of Vigilance? I really had no clue, but what a shock to learn it was Mr. Greer himself! Why he set up Vigilance, I don't know (or even if that was fully confirmed), but he did. All those people we thought were watching, weren't! So, their secret is somewhat safe still. Oh, they also don't have to worry about Peter anymore. Mr. Greer shot him!

Mr. Greer is one evil man, though. making the building blow up even though those poor innocent people were trapped inside! I almost thought John hadn't made it out, since he finally found where Harold was, but thank goodness he did (he was able to get Harold away from Mr. Greer, too).

Shaw decided to go help Root with the new Machine and after all they did, it still managed to turn on! What was all the work they did about then? Well, I'm assuming that Root knew they couldn't turn off the Machine, so I'm thinking that's when she put the new identities of John, Harold, Shaw and Root in. That way, if the new Machine did find them, they wouldn't be a threat and no one could come after them. That was the cliffhanger. Them going off in their new directions, but I have a feeling, this won't be the last time we see them all together.
