Person of Interest ‘God mode’ Preview!
I am glad to see that the Person of Interest finale scheduled for Thursday evening is so hotly anticipated by viewers online. As I mentioned in last weeks review of Zero Day PoI had some problems during the middle of its second season with character being killed off just because the actors playing them had scheduling conflicts. At this moment PoI is in as special sweet spot when it comes to plot development. So much so that a part of me is sad to see it unravel in the upcoming episode and season 3.
Before all that happens there is of course season 2’s finale entitled ‘God mode’. The phrase ‘God mode’ of course refers to a special cheat code used in old-school shooters that give players unlimited ammo and health. With regards to PoI it supposedly give users of The Machine not only total control but also the ability to ask it any question they want. If that were to happen PoI would definitely put a solid foot in the sci-fi genre that has so far only been hinted at.
‘God mode’ was written by the shows creator Jonathan Nolan. Alas he won’t be directing it.
Without further ado, here is the trailer for God mode…
Here is also the official synopsis for the episode…
