‘Person of Interest’ Episode Guide (Aug. 9): Chameleon Socialite Lured

“Lady Killer” (08/09/14) – Reese and Finch enlist the help of Carter, Shaw and Zoe Morgan, who use their feminine wiles to bait a chameleon playboy who is either a predator or someone else’s imminent prey.

Meanwhile, The Machine helps Root to plot an escape from her psych ward confinement before a dangerous enemy can track her down, on a rebroadcast of “Person of Interest,” on a special night and time, Saturday, August 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Paige Turco guest stars as Zoe Morgan (repeat; Originally broadcast 10/8/13).

“Person of Interest” is a crime thriller about an ex-CIA agent and a mysterious billionaire who prevent violent crimes by utilizing an all-seeing machine that can predict the events before they happen. Although they have successfully prevented numerous crimes thanks to The Machine’s omniscience, Reese and Finch now face an uncertain future. The Machine is being hunted by various forces and has moved itself to an unknown location in a surprising act of self-preservation.

In addition, it has begun communicating not only with Finch, but with Root, a dangerous hacker who views The Machine as a deity and believes she is serving a higher purpose by protecting it. Detective Carter, Reese and Finch’s longtime ally, was tragically murdered after successfully taking down the criminal organization HR.

Her death leaves Detective Fusco, who credits Carter with helping him redeem his corrupt past, to carry on her legacy. As they await new numbers, Reese and Finch, now joined by Shaw, a lethal operative left for dead by the government, can only wonder where The Machine’s evolving intelligence will lead them next, and what imminent threat it seems to be preparing them for.
