Reese and Root head upstate to Maple, New York as the vehicle Shaw was last seen in was spotted entering the town. Upon their arrival, they see Maple as a stereotypical perfect small American town... perhaps a little too perfect on the surface. As they track the movement of that vehicle, which is still in Maple, everything points to the answers they are looking for and hopefully a still alive Shaw lying within the town's major manufacturing plant, which had just been purchased by a company called Carrow and repurposed, which in turn has brought renewed prosperity to the town. Who is behind Carrow and its public face, Ms. Leslie Thompson, and what they are manufacturing may at least provide an answer as to why Shaw was brought to Maple. Meanwhile, Fusco is tasked with overseeing the Machine's latest number, Albert Weiss, a hardware store sales associate. He is a sad looking sack of a man who Fusco is certain is the target.

M.I.A. is the acronym for Missing In Action, a military term used to describe troops who cannot be found or have not returned to base after an engagement. In this case, Shaw can be termed M.I.A. because the team cannot determine her whereabouts, or whether she is dead or alive. See more »

Here comes the darkness
14 August 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Consider this review in counterpoint to the current Mutal Admiration Society.

It's all about endorphins.

Even the best producers and writers (and this show has both) eventually reach a point where they have to up the ante to maintain the viewer's "Jones" with their product.

And this year marks that descent into deep darkness for POI.

Nothing new about this if you are a student of TV. Buffy season I was all sunshine and outdoor scenes. The bad guys (vampires) were dispatched but everyone was having fun along the way, including the audience. By Season 3 however it was an entirely different show.

Ditto Smallville. Season I was about high school. sports, meeting people. There was sunshine. There was joy. Then came the darkness. Still great TV. But it was never quite the same.

POI began with a distinctly TBAA twist. Every week we save a new innocent. A little repetitious but brilliantly produced. And fun was had by all.

Not anymore. The darkness has finally arrived. The fans, most of whom are addicted and don't know it, will stay loyal. But they will have to watch darker and darker episodes to get the endorphins they crave.

Still a great production. But the sunshine has left the building.

And I for one will miss it.
