PERSON OF INTEREST Winter Premiere Sneak Peek: The Machine Mixes Up its Human Assets

How would you feel if you were compressed and folded into a briefcase before being unceremoniously switched off, perhaps never to be rebooted again? Yes, we are of course talking about Person of Interest’s Machine (or God, if you’re Root), aka the most enigmatic member of the POI team.

When we last checked in on the Machine, and her human counterparts Harold (Michael Emerson), Reese (Jim Caviezel) Fusco (Kevin Chapman) and Root (Amy Acker), Harold had taken a series of drastic and highly risky steps to save his creation from falling into Samaritan’s hands.

However when you’re used to having the world as your playground, spending time shut up in a briefcase can play havoc with your mind, as evidenced in this new sneak peek clip from the Winter premiere. Watch as the Machine spectacularly fails to match the correct face to the correct Asset.

Let’s be honest. This clip is pure fun, and a great opportunity for Caviezel, Acker, Emerson and Chapman to effectively play each other’s characters – spotlighting everything from Harold’s awkward physicality to Reese’s trademark undertones to Root’s flirtatious banter.

It’s all here. Just not quite as you expected.

Person of Interest is back Midseason on CBS.

Watch for our exclusive New York Comic Con interviews with the cast and crew coming very soon.
