Person of Interest: “One Percent” (Season 2 Episode 14)

One thing you have to admit about Person of Interest: it doesn’t discriminate: old, young, male, female, rich, poor – they all need protecting. So protecting a billionaire should not be a surprise; in fact, they are probably more frequently a target. Reese and Finch must protect a social networking guru from, well, everybody, because let’s face it, these guys are portrayed as flippant, arrogant, and rule breakers. The writers tried very hard to give Logan Pierce depth near the end of the show, but they just didn’t create enough of a sympathetic character for me to care whether Reese and Finch succeed. What is more interesting is the feeling that Pierce is going to be a threat in the future, from his grilling Reese and Finch about how they live off the grid, to the transmitter he placed in Reese’s watch – he has the resources and ego to cause them problems.

Also of great interest is the flashback to Nathan Ingram getting a number from the machine and holding a gun. Wait, what? Nathan is Reese and Finch before Reese and Finch started! So I imagine this is how Nathan died, and why Finch has dedicated his life to the numbers. While the episode was not very good, we’ve possibly been set up with an adversary, and we’re close to finding out what really happened to Nathan. Now if only Nathan were still alive…
