Person of Interest, you broke our heart recently, but it seems we still can’t get enough of you.

The latest details from CBS on Dec. 17th’s “Lethe” tease that we’ll get more flashbacks – this time to Finch’s adolescence and the origins of the Machine.

Although we love the show’s weekly flashback element, might this one be pushing the clock back a little too far? Then again, it might just be us feeling all passive aggressive over Carter.

Check out the official log-lines for the episode below.
