Person of Interest


Series 1 - Episode 12 Legacy



“You are being waaatched,” whines Michael Emerson over the opening titles. Emerson’s distinctive voice and robotic bearing – like C3PO in an overcoat – lend this series a lot of its flavour. His character, Finch, the billionaire tech whiz posing as an insurance drone, is a fascinating one and we glean more about his back story. Not the story of his stiff back, but his past – he greets a young man emerging from police custody with a broad smile. Yes, not a pained half-smile or a grimace, but the real deal, such as we’ve never seen on his face before. Could this be his son?


The Machine directs Reese and Finch to protect lawyer Andrea Gutierrez, who specialises in suing on behalf of convicts who claim they were wrongfully imprisoned. As part of her current case, she is hoping to get a former prisoner's latest drug charges thrown out so he can regain custody of his young son. Reese manages to thwart an attack on Andrea's life and discovers her client and the assailant share the same parole officer, whose bank account shows irregular activity.
