Person of Interest: Life of "2πR"

Merry New Year! Been a few weeks since we chit-chatted about things. You know, the fiscal cliff, the NFL playoffs and Reese getting picked up by the FBI.

Last night's winter premiere was unique among POI episodes so far in that Reese was barely in it, leaving the heavy lifting to Finch and Fusco (and Carter, to a lesser [clad] extent). The result was short on action, but provided Michael Emerson with a chance to explore his nurturing side. It was a pleasant change of pace.

Just don't make a habit of it, guys. We likes our weekly dose of Reese ass-kicking.
