When Reese sees Terry clandestinely breaking into an investment firm, he finds an obviously scared Terry inside with a bomb strapped to his wrist, which Reese is able to dismantle. Reese will learn that Terry's wife Carla is being held hostage by whoever forced Terry to do the break-in by strapping that bomb to his wrist, that person vowing to kill Carla if Terry doesn't comply. Based on voice recognition of the messages left by that person to Terry's cell phone, Finch knows that the person behind what is happening is a mastermind criminal nicknamed The Voice, his identity still unknown. Because of The Voice's deep criminal history, Finch believes he has to call in specialized assistance to find out who The Voice is and what his end game with Terry is.

Did You Know?


Sotto Voce is Italian for "under the voice", that is, to speak in a low voice for emphasis. The technique is designed to suggest revelation of a secret, or a piece of information that might otherwise shock or offend. See more »


In the opening scene the coyote (person smuggling someone across the border) tells the family he was transporting to "walk northeast about ten miles." The US is one of only three countries (along with Liberia and Myanmar) that don't use the metric system, so they should have mentioned a distance in kilometers given that they're south of the Mexico/US border (as evidenced by the license plate on the truck and their instructions to head northeast towards the border). Since the coyote's truck had Texas license plates he is all probability a U.S. citizen and would be used to telling people distances in miles, not kilometers. See more »


Harold Finch: Either way, you should proceed with extreme caution, Ms. Groves.
Root: Don't worry, Harry. I'll keep my eye on Stone from a distance, and I'm pretty sure I'll have the biggest gun on the block.

One Of The Best Episode This Season & Freaking Thrilling at best !!!!
31 May 2016 | by jaykumar-pillaiSee all my reviews

Titled "Sotto Voce" which translates into 'Under the Voice', This Crackerjack of a 9th episode of Final season of POI delivered Thrills & action backed by a solid story-line. The reason, A series like Person of Interest works is that its writers don't discard old plots & characters even in its fag-end closing time. A dangerous & Unseen antagonist 'heard' in the 3rd season in its 15th episode - Last Call is brought back in a subtly done & packed with suspense episode which pits the team yet again with a invisible force. John Reese & Det. Fusco are trying to sort their differences over secrets held back with a new number surfacing & things not being what they seems to be, with the minor background plot involving Root on her own single mission & Shaw continuing in her quest to break free & take down Samaritan. Without giving out spoilers, this episode deserves to be seen to be enjoyed more than ever.

Pluses : The whole trapped In a location scenario, Hostage held & Elias stealing the show after a Long, long time. Minuses : None Overall : one of the best episode in this season & a reason to cheer for the concluding 4 episodes.
