Upon Reese's return from Italy to rejoin the team, Finch receives their next number, that belonging to Kelli Lin. Born in Shanghai but raised in various places abroad, she became a naturalized US citizen six months ago. Reese's first instinct is that she is a spy, although her on-the-surface work is as an upscale events planner. The current event that she is planning is at a new exhibit opening at the Metropolitan Museum of History, that black tie event which Finch, Reese and Shaw plan to attend. During that event, which is being protested against by people who believe the artifacts being shown belong to the cultures where they were created, an incident occurs resulting in a Cezanne painting being stolen. After tracking the movements of the thief, Finch, Reese, Shaw and eventually Fusco change their goal of capturing the thief to trying to save a little girl, the two which may be incompatible.

A good episode from a excellent season
8 July 2016 | by (uppsala) – See all my reviews

I think much about rating movies, series etc. is about trying to be objective and not let you're own judgment and issues blur you're view and because of this being misguided youreself resulting in misguiding others

Someone said that objectivness is the truth. And that being objetive are something we think comes pretty easy but might be the hardest thing we can do

Objectiveness and being able to ignore irrelevant details and by this accomplish a pure emotion expression is much of what i appreciate in actors, writers and directors... And Nolan seems to be very good at this there are many similarities between the batman-movies and person of interest with this in mind. In this case he also show sides that are quite new for me, showing concrete how our history in fact affect us.

"i just look forward and forget about things that have past, no reason dwelling them..." I've heard it many times and versions of it. Not a line after my own hard and i believe Nolan with this series making a strong statement about this kind of thinking.

What i base my view and rating on is. Does it affect me? does it make me laugh? does it make me cry?

i think truth, more specifically actors who are able to find the truth in the moment can do this

I also think that realism, realism in the way that can make us stop and holding our breath or stay half way with the hand to the mouth from the popcorncan is rearely but can be accomplished

This series have had a impact on me and making me believe in the good things in life, good persons and what good persons really mean, and also which is a recurrent theme, even though we have made some horrible things and we meet complex feelings about who we are, we can change. If just one good person who are not corrupted and rather die than giving in can believe in us, really believe, we can change. And that is a powerful thing to be able to mediate
