The next number that the machine dispenses belongs to Adam Saunders, a proprietary trader with the Wall Street investment firm Baylor Zimm. Adam is seemingly a high roller who likes to play big and win big... all with the company's money. However, that high rolling exterior is partly a mask for a man who does his homework to figure out the odds, which usually pay off for him. Below the professional surface, there are three issues which may be factors in whatever incident will be happening. The first is that he is having a clandestine relationship with one of the company's managing partners, Sydney Baylor. The second is that he has been and is currently being interrogated by Inspector Doug Rasmussen with the SEC, who seems to think that Adam and or Baylor Zimm as a company are involved in some securities illegalities.

Absolutely amazing!
9 July 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

What to say? Person Of Interest just gets amazing with every single episode. As always, it's the least expected person who turned out to be the antagonist of the episode. The ending was brilliant; it was good to see Scarface again, which was pretty unpredictable. Elias talking to John in the end made the whole episode for me, along with the good choice of music. And, we learn more about John's part. Great episode about wall-street brokers, a lot of twist and turns. Pretty much had everything suspense, mystery, betrayal, shocks and truth. Fantastic season, and it deserves a lot of hype. It's reminds you how scary things can get with power and technology. Such an underrated show. Jonathan Nolan doesn't disappoint!
