The wheels of the conclusion of the battle with HR began turning in last week’s Person of Interest when Carter discovered Quinn is the organization’s leader. EPs Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman warn that we will lose a character by the last episode of this 3-show arc.
In spoilers to TV Guide, Nolan suggests that the HR storyline will be coming to an end:
It’s the final salvo in a years-long war,” he says. “It’s going to take everything our heroes can bring to bear to finally put this thing to rest. We’re building this to a climax. We’ve had an amazing experience telling this part of our story, but it’s time for this door to close and another one to open. In order to do it justice with a foe as formidable as HR, it will not come without loss.”
Will that loss be Fusco, as was suggested by the promo for tonight’s episode?
“A lot of this was sparked by [Fusco's] original sin of having been a member of HR,” Plageman says. “It’s coming back to haunt him.” Adds Nolan: “Over these three episodes, you see the journey and the distance that we’ve traveled. … [Fusco] was literally a bad guy in the pilot. The full distance he’s traveled from that moment to this moment and who he’s become, we felt was a pretty epic journey for the character.”
Sure sounds like our beloved Fusco is going to die. Are you angry they might be killing him? (I certainly am.) Share your thoughts in the Comments. And be sure to watch the first of the 3-episode arc tonight at 10 pm on CBS.
