The "Person of Interest" episode, "Til Death," contained more of the usual comic relief than previous episodes this season. The focus of the episode is clearly the topic of relationships. Everyone finds someone, except poor Reese (Jim Caviezel). At least Reese has a dog. He's also married to his work as a badass vigilante. Finch (Michael Emerson) does not exactly find someone, but has his former fiancee he can spy on, at least.
Harold and Grace, circa 2006
It's nice to see Grace (Carrie Preston) make an appearance again, especially when it means seeing Harold Finch on his first date with her, back in 2006. They really do make a cute couple. It's too bad Finch is now relegated to spying on her while retrieving new numbers from the Machine. Perhaps the Machine could be considered his new "girlfriend."
Reese and Bear, and the "doggy danish"
Reese comes to the library to learn about the new numbers and brings a "doggy danish" for Bear. Although Finch and Reese have an interesting friendship, the relationship the two men have with their dog is beyond adorable. It's almost as if the two friends are married and have decided to take the plunge and buy a dog together. They each have a different relationship with Bear, and both relationships are adorable.
Daniel and Sabrina Drake, and death (almost) "do them part"
Reese learns that husband Daniel Drake (Mark Pellegrino) wants to sell a company the couple shares. Wife Sabrina Drake (Francie Swift) wants to keep the company. Reese first assumes the couple must be in danger from outside forces, but it turns out they are actually a danger to each other.
First, Daniel attempts to have Sabrina killed with a car bomb. Reese grabs the bomb just before Sabrina gets in the car and has to defuse it within just seconds, before it literally blows up in his face.
Sabrina then attempts to have Daniel murdered via sniper. Reese bumps into Daniel, causing him to curse the man who just saved his life. Neither husband nor wife have any idea that their spouse is trying to have them killed at this point.
Reese decides to give the couple some instant "marriage counseling." He captures Daniel with a punch in the face, and Sabrina by putting a bag over her head and carrying her over his shoulder. He stuffs them both in the trunk of a car, then ties them to chairs at a dinner table, forcing them to talk to each other. It doesn't work very well.
Finch has a better idea. He places a photo of the two from a time when they were happy on the the table, then unties them. It works until the two assassins (hired by Daniel and Sabrina) show up (still on the clock, and not yet paid in full) and try to each kill their target. Reese makes quick work of them, literally nailing one of them to the floor with a nail gun.
Carter and Beecher, and help with the case
Det. Beecher (Sterling K. Brown) helps Carter (Taraji P. Henson) get the information she needs to help Reese and Finch. Beecher goes heavy on the flirting each time they meet. They actually seem as if they could be a couple. Carter needs some love in her life to make working with Fusco bearable. Will Beecher plays into the future story? Hopefully!
Fusco and Rhonda, and the stakeout
Fusco (Kevin Chapman) begins acting mysteriously, but he really just has a crush on a woman named Rhonda (Tricia Paoluccio). The two of them go on a date, but Fusco is called away by Reese. Rhonda decides it will be fun to join along on the stakeout. The stakeout turns into a shooting match, until Reese saves the day. Later, Reese tells Fusco not to be so "melodramatic" about being in a new relationship.
