First details on Person of Interest’s May 9 season finale have been released by CBS. (We’re still waiting on an official press release with casting details.)

The episode, aptly titled “God Mode” will see the Machine going offline following the cumulative effects of the virus released by Agent Stanton (Annie Parisse) earlier this season. We are told that Finch’s (Michael Emerson) original and elusive motivation for helping the Machine’s irrelevant numbers begins to come to light as he and Reese (Jim Caviezel) join forces with “surprising allies” in a race to save it.

We’re thinking the finale episode may see the return of Amy Acker’s deadly Root. Although strictly Finch’s nemesis, Root remains in awe of the Machine’s capabilities, and may be first in line to attempt to save it, if presented the opportunity. Root’s been overdue another appearance on the show, and would certainly make for quite the ‘surprising’ ally. Thoughts?

“God Mode” airs Thursday May 9 at 9:01pm-10:01pm on CBS.

More as we have it.
