Goofs

In the series finale; the evil machine, Samaritan. launches a cruise missile at the (fictional) satellite dish on the rooftop of 1133 Avenue of the Americas, NYC, NY and destroys the rooftop. In fact, a US Navy ship off the coast of NYC would launch a real Raytheon SM-6 missile and destroy the cruise missile shorty after it was launched and long before it got anywhere near NYC. The SM-6 missile has shot down test cruise missiles and it's deployed on many US Navy surface ships. However it is conceivable that just as Samaritan took control of the USS Garner to launch the cruise missile, it also could have taken control of any and all US Navy ships in the area to prevent the missile from being shot down.

One of the best TV episodes, possibly the best series finale of all time
22 June 2016 | by seantannySee all my reviews

In terms of writing, acting, music & all that VFX, Person of Interest is quite possibly the creative peak of television. For those who've been following this show since the beginning, its evolution is astonishing, from a sleek Batman-like crime show with fantastic characters to a high-concept masterpiece. And it's still realistic & all about the characters! This finale exemplifies all that. Plot threads are resolved as perfectly as can be with just the right amount of open-endedness remaining. Its non-human characters have been developed as well as the core human characters, so much so that we feel a great deal of empathy for them. With just the right dose of nostalgia & powerful storytelling everyone gets what they want. Nobody will be complaining like they have for various good shows with unsatisfactory endings. What they would complain about is not getting more episodes. A true masterpiece indeed.
