Person of Interest "Search and Destroy" Episode Review

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

Creepy machine is an understatement because each time Samaritan makes an "appearance", I'm more weirded out by how the machine works each time and I understand even more why Harold would never want something like this out there in the real world. I mean, to target a guy just because he found out too much and to want to kill him was a bit extreme. Still, I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole episode.

At first, I was thinking it was the guy that ran the meeting that was behind this all, so it was a shock to find out that Samaritan was indeed behind the whole thing and the guy finally did find out that there really is an AI out there, but he sadly had to die because he found out.

I never know what Root is up to now-a-days. With the Machine not talking to her like it used to (is it because she wants to go rogue now that it blocked her from finding Shaw?), who knows what she is doing and why she's even doing it. Like with the briefcase. Was that the Machine's choice she take it or was she working by herself? It does sound like she gets bits and pieces on what to do, but it doesn't fully talk to her anymore. Which is just a bit odd. Even if I don't totally enjoy Root that much, I do love it when she somehow manages to show up at the last second to save the day, which John needed, again. However, John did a bunch of saving himself, too. It just helps to have a second hand sometimes. 

The creepy Samaritan takes the seeking part of hide and seek to a whole new level. It wanted Khan (the number) because of a software he had created. It wanted to use the software in order to search out for the other Machine and it has come pretty close to it! So, what does that mean? Does that mean that the Machine and the gang are in even more danger now then they were before? Sounds like it to me.
