I'm a sociopath, I don't have feelings. And I'm a reformed killer for hire. We're perfect for each other. You're gonna figure that out someday. If you and I were the last two people on the face of this planet- Root: An increasingly plausible scenario, given Samaritan's plans. Maybe someday, when Samaritan wipes everyone out You're saying maybe someday?
Yeah, sure Root, maybe someday. Is that good enough for you? That's good enough for me. The third simulation features the Machine running a simplified simulation, in which the dialogue is broken down into descriptions of character-typical interactions: Transparent rationale for conversation.
Annoyed attempt to deflect subtext. Mildly embarrassed defensiveness, bordering on hostility. The Machine ultimately selects an option which was shown as having a less than two percent chance of success, as time ran out before the simulation could be finished. The four team members in the Stock Exchange become cornered by Samaritan operatives after successfully averting the financial crisis, with Reese having been shot in the back and Root having been grazed.
Root calls Shaw and appears to begin her final conversation with Shaw from the second simulation, but Shaw appears, having gotten explosives from the subway bomber, and the team's chances of survival skyrockets as shown on one of the Machine's graphical overlays. She and Root give the others cover fire as they make their way to the elevator, and Root pressed up against Shaw's back as they move brings up the topic of their relationship again: We're so good at this together. You're gonna realize that someday.
You're hot, you're good with a gun. Those are two qualities I greatly admire. But you and me together would be like a four alarm fire in an oil refinery. The team gets to their escape elevator, but the controls fail to work. Shaw spots an override button across the hallway and says that someone needs to get to the button.
Root tries to prevent Shaw from leaving, but Shaw shrugs out of Root's grip. Upon turning around and looking at Root, Shaw sighs, shakes her head, and pulls Root in for a kiss before shoving her backward, leaving the elevator, and locking the freight door behind her. Shaw engages the button and gets shot twice in the abdomen, and Root looks on in horror, screaming and crying as the doors close and the last thing she sees is Martine aiming a gun at Shaw's head.
The two are nearly killed in the search, and the woman they are tracking turns out not to be Shaw.
Reese and Finch resign themselves to giving up the search for Shaw, but Root tearfully begs the Machine for an answer about whether Shaw is alive or dead.
The Machine calls her to tell her to stop, and Root goes off on her own. The audience learns that Shaw is still alive at the end of episode 13, but the rest of the team remains ignorant. After a lengthy time on her own, she rejoins Finch and Reese, at one point nearly choking Martine to death when they run into her on a mission .
Ultimately she receives a call from Shaw saying she needs her help. Finch says it's a trap, and Root acknowledges it but is determined to go after Shaw anyway. The two trace the call to a psychiatric facility in New York and infiltrate the building, but it is soon revealed to be Samaritan's headquarters.
Root discovers the room Shaw had been staying in, including the blood-stained coat she had been wearing at the Stock Exchange, and catches sight of Shaw from the window being led into a van outside. Martine taunts Root about "her little girlfriend" telling Martine about Root's cochlear implant and threatens Finch.
Root snaps Martine's neck and Samaritan threatens her and Finch's lives if the Machine does not reveal her location. Shaw is last seen in the front passenger's seat of the van, being driven to an unknown location.
Shaw first reappears to the audience in episode 4 as Samaritan's prisoner.Person of Interest - Root x Shaw love scene (05x04)
Shaw's interactions with Samaritan and their simulations are shown in episodes 4, 6, 7, and 8. While initially Shaw appears to escape in episode four and reunite with Root and the rest of the teamit it ultimately shown to be a simulation meant to trick Shaw into telling Samaritan when the team and The Machine are located - something that she has failed to do at least 6, times.
This reaches Shaw just in time, and she begins to plan her escape. In episode 8, Shaw finally escapes from where Samaritan is holding her which is revealed to be in South Africashooting Lambert despite his efforts to convince her it is all a simulation.
As Shaw drives away, a news report on the radio refers to events the rest of the team was dealing with - confirming this it is in fact reality.
I read your file, and I'm kind of a big fan. So, I really don't want to hurt you. I just need the name.
Person of Interest: Will Root Choose The Machine or Shaw?
You really have no idea what you're caught up in, do you? Who you're actually working for.
Did you honestly think the source of the numbers was Guantanamo? Some sad taxi driver rotting away in a cage somewhere? I mean, you should know torture almost never produces good information. Sadly, we are on a bit of a clock. Wilson's men started looking for Veronica here three hours ago. Now, Aquino was hired to build a home for something very special. Something I want to find.
With perhaps the best trailer for a TV season I have seen of all timeexciting storylines looking to converge and emerge, theories and speculating wildly being thrown about, giddiness and gross sobbing over Shaw…is that just me?
And I believe that because even with a hugely serialised arc, the executive producers and writers still managed to hold together a compelling and thrilling story whilst keeping the plot tight. In my opinion, yes, in season four, I thought there were a number of fillers. Thirteen episodes of fast-paced, non-filler, action-packed drama—fraught with reveals, romance, the conclusion a definite one? I can see a promotional picture and babble on about it. I do want to talk a little bit about Root and Shaw as previously done.
And I completely understand that. That actually makes me incredibly sad that at this state of television viewing, some viewers cannot approach a show for fear of falling trap to the trope. It is not an accusation, but merely a question.
And from my standpoint: They just did it because Acker and Shahi were so magnetic together on-screen and it was unavoidable.
