Person of Interest - Truth Be Told

With The Machine now running properly again the latest number (Stephen Plunkett) hits close to home for Reese (Jim Caviezel) when his former CIA boss (Keith David) abducts the man for stealing classified government documents. Risking revealing to the CIA that John Reese is still alive, our hero is able to save the number but in doing so not only alerts his old boss to his whereabouts but also learns the number's current actions were all caused by one of his old missions for the CIA (shown in flashbacks).

In a very Reese-centered episode that even takes time to delve into his romantic life, the B-story of "Truth Be Told" gives us Root (Amy Acker) as a delivery driver who uncovers one method in which Samaritan is spreading its reach across the city. With an example of the code Samaritan is using, Root and Finch (Michael Emerson) may at least have a chance of uncovering just what the artificial intelligence's end game might be. By the end of the episode both missions are successful and the stage is set for next week's long-overdue return of Shaw (Sarah Shahi).
