Wow! I bet fans of normal procedurals were FURIOUS at the ambiguous ending of last night’s Person of Interest. But if the new CBS series wants to keep this person’s interest, it’s going to have to keep doing such things as a means of separating itself from more neatly wrapped-up procedurals.
So far, so good. This week the computer box spit out the social security number of a pretty young doctor, played by pretty young Linda Cardellini of ER fame—though you really should know her as Lindsay from Freaks and Geeks. Man, I had a mountain-sized crush on her! Anyway, her character was a doc by day and a clubber by night, and Reese suspected she was being stalked by a handsome sexual predator, a la American Psycho.
He was half right; as is becoming typical for Person of Interest, we found out things weren’t as they seemed. It turned out she was stalking him because he’d raped her sister in college, which led her sis to commit suicide, and she wanted to dissolve his body with lye in her vacation home near the ocean. Sweet revenge!
And thus the thinking man’s question for the episode was born: Is vengeance worth it if it will irreparably change your life for the worse? Here we had a young doctor with a bright future who didn’t know what she was getting herself into. If she were to murder that Patrick Bateman-ish dude, she’d feel good for about five minutes before the blood on her hands started haunting her. At least, that was Reese’s take.
