Amy Acker is set to guest on CBS’ Person of Interest season finale episode, Firewall, it emerged today.

TV Guide reports that Acker (who recently appeared in NBC’s Grimm and ABC’s Once Upon a Time) will play ‘an attractive psychologist who caters to the rich and powerful. When the machine spits out her number, Reese (Jim Caviezel) must keep her safe from several clients who could potentially kill to keep their secrets safe.’

The episode is said to see Reese and Acker’s character trapped in a heavily surveilled part of the city. He must rely on Finch, Carter and Fusco’s help.

Person of Interest airs Thursdays 9/8c on CBS.

    Well, I’m confused! Info given earlier was —
    “Episode 22 will be called ‘No Good Deed.’ An official description follows:
    As the clock ticks down, Reese (Jim Caviezel) winds up trapped with his POI in the most heavily surveilled part of the city, forced to rely on the help of Finch (Michael Emerson), Carter (Taraji P. Henson) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) to fend off the FBI, corrupt cops and a slew of old foes.”

    Now the info for the Finale (Episode 23) is:
    “The episode is said to see Reese and Acker’s character trapped in a heavily surveilled part of the city. He must rely on Finch, Carter and Fusco’s help.”

    Sounds like the description for either Episode 22 or 23 is wrong…perhaps CBS wants to keep the finale a secret as long as possible?
    (Exec. producer Greg Plageman did say about the finale: “The last episode is serious and we have a mind-blower cooked up for you guys!”)

      Well I’m kinda confused myself. I did notice the short synopsis is the same. I’m guessing that episodes 22 and 23 are connected. Perhaps episode 22 ends with Reese becoming trapped? And episode 23 goes on from there. All I can tell you is that our various news sources have never steered us wrong. (except for that one time when we all thought episode 22 was the season finale, and they went and added another episode to the order list.) There will be fuller press releases in due course (although the POI releases are usually brief) and we will amend, update and discuss further! Promise!

        Thanks Jennifer! That sounds right, since many such shows (ie “24”) made the finale a 2-parter. For the POI diehards like myself, it’s going to be a tense week between the two episodes…!

    Maybe it’s a two-parter, and Episode 22 ends with Reese and the POI trapped?

    That sounds very reasonable!
    Boy, I can hardly wait…but when it’s over, it’s an even longer wait till Season 2! 🙁
