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.

Quotes

John Reese: How's it going Finch?
Harold Finch: Ooh, the shooting is a little distracting.
John Reese: Yeah, well I won't be shooting much longer... Because I'm out.

Crazy Credits

The standard opening sequence with Finch's (and during most of season 5, also Greer's) voiceover is absent. All that is left is the title card that appears after the first scene on the skyscraper roof with Finch. See more »

Unbelievably great and inspiring end to a masterpiece(no spoilers)...
4 May 2017 | by akshatdaveSee all my reviews

Not only a fantastic ending to a nail-biting sub-plot, but also a marvelous introduction to a beautiful new era...After finishing this episode, I completely forgot that "Person of Interest" was a network TV show, because nothing about this story, or the episodes preceding it have felt so flawlessly created for a show airing on CBS. Absolute wonderful cinematography, outstanding acting from the whole cast and some wonderful pieces of dialogue masked the tedious and overplayed plot devices you might expect from regular television..Jonathan Nolan and Amanda Segel did a great job in genre like this I never liked action much but with good story and direction everything can be perfect I am sad that this show is ending but Nolan's new show "Westworld" is starting on HBO I am looking forward to it..
