So it's come to this. Slowly but surely, the prehistory of Mr. Finch's (Michael Emerson) Machine has come into focus, as well as that of his muscle/partner Mr. Reese (Jim Caviezel). Unfortunately, the noose is tightening around them both, because even though the CIA has backed off for now, the FBI has taken an enthusiastic interest in our mystery men.
"Firewall" started with a (metaphorical) bang and rarely let up, making for an enjoyably tense season finale to a show I started off reviewing by saying it was better than we dared hope. 22 episodes later, I'm still pleasantly surprised (and relieved) that PoI remains as engaging as it is. There's filler, sure, but unlike some other shows I've reviewed here (*cough* The Killing *cough*), I'm already looking forward to next season.
