Using the pretense of needing a prescription refilled while his own doctor is away, Finch is able to initiate the electronic surveillance on his and Reese's next case, that of emergency room physician Dr. Megan Tillman. In following Dr. Tillman, Reese learns that she is leading a double life. While she spends tireless sixteen hour days at the hospital, her precious time away from the hospital is not spent sleeping, but rather trolling the singles bars at night. Reese is certain the other party involved in whatever will happen to her is investment banker Andrew Benton, who not only frequents the same bars but who Tillman ran into earlier that day.

Mysteries are unraveling every episode

Cura Te Ipsum is a really good episode of Person of Interest. Not only was it a "case of the week" type episode but it revealed more about Finch a little bit with more secret identities and the relationship Reese and Fusco have.

I feel like Reese is going to dig more in depth into Finch's past soon and it's gonna cause a rift between them. Also, who is Elias? This is the second time he's been brought up. A little bit of action in this episode and a very well done story behind the new POI.
