The problem is that Theresa was supposedly killed two years earlier in what was deemed a murder/suicide of her entire family on a boat, the killer being her father, Grant Whitaker. However, Theresa's body was never recovered, presumed drowned and swept away by the current. Reese quickly discovers that it wasn't a suicide, but rather a contract hit. They have to figure out who contracted the hit and why, and why they didn't kill then fifteen year old Theresa. They also have to figure out if the hit had any connection to Grant's now supposedly grieving brother Derek and/or Derek's ex-wife, Elizabeth. But first, they have to find Theresa, who probably has trust issues having been underground for two years. Because of her situation, Finch has a certain empathy for this case.

Goofs

When Reese is trying to intercept the bad guys car, their car on the map is going north, and Reese's taxi is going west. This means the bad guys should be coming from Reese's left. But when he stops them they're coming from his right. Which means that even though Reese got to the intersection first, their car has somehow passed him, u-turned and is now going south when he stops them. See more »

Very-Clever-Action!
30 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As soon as I saw J Nolan created this series, I knew for a fact that this show will be brilliant! I wasn't wrong! The style of the production, casting, acting, story line, direction and choreography combined excellently to keep me very tightly gripped.

Both episodes so far has been fantastically captivating. I have seen works from both James Caviezel and Michael Emerson. Both actors are good at owning their roles and transforming into their characters. Another factor is how well the characters compliment each other. I believe these are the qualities the Nolan brothers are extremely good at finding and harnessing.

In respect to the storyline, the motive is wise, the incidents are realistic, the technology is possible and the characters blend in well.

I hope Person of Interest continues to deliver. In my opinion - best new series - no doubt!
