|Oh, yeah...she's got fans.|
Yes, Carter's presence was minimal, but there was gunfire, clandestine meetings with a federal agent, and allusions to conspiracy. Judging by the ending conversation between her and Reese, it's about to get real.
Aside for the lack of Carter, this episode was good for various reasons. For one, the opening was hilarious. Reese reaches an address he was sent to courtesy of the Machine. Apparently, it spit a repeat number, prompting Reese to ask, "Who would be dumb enough to get into a life-threatening situation again?"
Right on cue - and I already knew who it would be - Leon Tao (Ken Leung) comes flying through a nearby window. He appears throughout the episode, sort of like a Finch 2.0. I hope to see him in many more eps.
Sharon Leal also appears in her much anticipated role as the state's top surgeon and a happily married lesbian. Her appearance tapped into my inner screen capper.
Her plotline is great; it's not original, but forgivable. And Leal does an excellent job; it's hard to believe she's the same actress from those Tyler Perry movies.
Unlike Person of Interest, I'm not on the fence about Scandal's last episode.
Once again, the Prez doesn't appear and this isn't an Olivia-centric episode, though we do see her tremble and shed tears like no tomorrow over the person this episode is really about: Huck.
Huck's (not his real name, of course) black ops history comes back to haunt him, bringing him face to face with former associates of his (apparently they used to call him "Spin"). Here the audience is granted a taste of very dark hilarity.
Before we move onto the episode itself (it has to be seen, not read about...there are simply no words for this one), we see how far Olivia's willing to go to end the relationship between Abby the Red and David Rosen. *shakes head* Straight up brutal, y'all.
