Person of Interest: Truth Be Told
May 10, 2016 11:09 PM - Season 5, Episode 3 - Subscribe

Reese's cover could be blown when he realizes the latest POI has ties to his old CIA colleague, Kara Stanton. Thus begins what's in no small part a procedural episode that focuses on Reese's backstory and how it affects his present. As such, it's a bit of a throwback to earlier seasons, and a bit of a breather after the one-two punch of the opening episodes of PoI's final season.

Oh, and, back at HQ, The Machine shares some Emily Dickinson poetry.

Meanwhile, Episodes 7 ("6,741") airs next Monday, and Episode 8 ("ShotSeeker") on Monday, both at 10 Eastern/9 Central.

I'm with Sepinwall: this doesn't tell me anything new really, other than Keith David is cool and Root knows how to deal with sexual harassment. I did like the credits, though.

I liked Keith David's portrayal a lot. And I liked how it was written. I expected another random intelligence op bad guy and instead, we got someone who might be more parallel to Reese. He had a morality to him that was complicated but not irredeemable.

Keith David is the coolest and I would watch him read the phonebook backwards. I agree with DirtyOldTown about the nice job they did with his character, though.

I don't really care about Reese's love life, still. Iris was a lot more interesting as a character when she was a therapist trying to unravel Reese and not his girlfriend.
