Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Michael Cole
Curtis McClarin ...
Berlin Policeman


Sam Shaw and her associate Michael Cole receive numbers from the machine much like Finch and Reese, but they receive the ones relating to terrorist threats, which they are to extinguish. Working as field agents for the US Government, they, however, do not yet know the source for the numbers. Shaw and Cole end up being the next numbers Finch and Reese receive. Despite Shaw and by association Cole having killed many in the past, Reese and Finch receive their numbers as the intended targets. The perpetrators are insiders who want to dispose of them because they are questioning and thus getting close to finding out the source of the numbers. Shaw specifically is initially unaware that she is targeted because of where they are heading toward in that questioning. As Shaw tries to find out who gave the kill order on her, Reese and Finch have problems keeping her safe if only because of her suspicious nature as a killer agent, and her loner attitude.

Did You Know?


The policeman's German is native, Shaw has a noticeable American accent. When Shaw's captions read 'I'm sorry' before she knocks him out, she actually says "I *told* you I was in a hurry!" See more »


Apart from the 'cesium' being the wrong color (silver-grey instead of light brown), there should also be much more of it. Cesium has an extremely low density of 1.93 g/cm³ - a little over two thirds that of aluminium. The volume of half a pound of it would therefore be at least 129.5 cm³, or 4.5 ounces. A lot more if it was coarse grains. See more »


Michael Cole: Control called. We got another number.
Samantha Shaw: I guess it's like you said. They never stop coming.

I just loved Shaw
22 June 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

PoI is turning the attention to a different kind of plot and I love it.

Root is back (her scene was awesome!), I like when Leon appears, he always gives this show a funny look.

The series has been introducing lots of characters lately. And important ones.

I just hope Shaw turns into a main one, and not a spin-off main character. I think she'd be perfect to form a trio with Finch and Reese (not counting with Bear :P).

I finished the 1st season rating it with a 7. Right now I'm considering summing 2 values up.
