Person of Interest: Lone "Wolf and Cub"

Tension is growing between Reese and Finch, those partners in crimestopping. In the beginning, the ex-CIA operative's needling of his nerdy OCD boss seemed almost good-natured, but as Finch continues to deflect Reese's inquiries about The Machine, the latter has moved into full-scale investigation mode with the help of Det. Fusco. These efforts finally bear fruit this week, raising some interesting questions about both the past and current movitivations for the show's resident genius.

First, there's another Number of the Week. And is Reese still "hunted by the authorities," like they say in the intro? Now that Carter's been flipped, that just leaves Agent Snow and company, and we haven't seen them in weeks.

Maybe we'll find out Reese has a library book from 1979 he never returned.
