Joey Durban, a just returned veteran of Afghanistan conflict, is the next case for Reese and Finch. On the surface, Joey seems to be just another vet trying to adjust to civilian life, which includes reuniting with his long time girlfriend Pia Moresco and trying to eke out a living working as a doorman at an upscale residential complex. As Reese begins to follow him, Joey seems to have a secret life, which includes a relationship with a single mother. But the larger issue is that Joey works within a band of robbers, who rob a bank while on Reese's watch. Finch is initially confused as the machine only identifies violent crimes, and the robberies Joey has committed has had no violence associated. Reese, however, believes that Joey is the father of the young child and is committing the robberies to support the child and mother. He also believes that one of Joey's associates is the one who is planning on killing Joey. The only way Reese can find out for sure is to infiltrate the gang as ... Written by Huggo

Great episode for a really good show
8 October 2011 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

I really like this show.

Finally we have a show that is real as it gets and it's interesting to watch. It doesn't "throw" the new plot twists every 2 min. (we watched a lot of these aren't we?) and it's just a joy to watch. Jim Caviezel is in his best form. You really believe that he could kick you ass in a sec. When i saw Michael Emerson in a first episode and thought "oh man, that's the dude from "Lost", he's definitely going to be some VERY and i mean VERY secret / mysterious dude in this one, he's like going to "throw" all the mysterious stuff every 2 sec. and we'll say ohhh..." but NO, he's got some mystery but it works here very well. And this episode is just amazing. It was just like watching some mini "Heat" episode crossed between "The Dark Knight" (i'm not joking here, hope you'll see some references here brought by J.Nolan). I'm recommending this show (and especially this episode) to everyone who likes movies like "Heat" or other great heist movies. "Person of Interest" - your'e here to stay!
