Person of Interest premieres tonight, and new series regulars Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker shared spoilers on what their characters, Shaw and Root, will be up to in Season 3, plus revealed a new threat to the team.
Episode 5 will be a big Shaw/Root episode, in which Root will try her hardest to antagonize Shaw. We will also learn more about who Shaw is through flashbacks, as Shahi told Zap2It:
“We do some flashbacks. We get to see Shaw in her younger years and kind of see what happened to her that made her come the way she is. I’m excited for that episode to air just to see what people think. We might see a crack in her vulnerability.”
Acker also teased that a new set of villains will be introduced, and they will remain mysterious for quite a while:
“There’s an introduction of some new really cool bad guys this year. It will be fun to see how it all plays out. They’re introduced pretty early on and we still haven’t figure out exactly what they are. It’s kind of being revealed to us as the season progresses. It will be a fun thing for the audience to kind of figure out.”
Shahi added that the baddies will pop up in one episode and then not reappear until several episodes farther into the season.
Person of Interest’s Season 3 premiere airs tonight at 10 pm on CBS. Are you excited to see Shaw and Root return?
