'Person of Interest' producers talk 'dangerous' new episode: 'It all comes to a climax'

Get ready for a whirlwind, Person of Interest fans! Tuesday night’s episode “The Crossing” may very well leave you gasping for breath — or at least that’s what the show’s creator Jonathan Nolan and EP Greg Plageman are hoping.

After last week’s Machine-spewing madness (38 numbers!!), things take a big turn this week: For the first time, Reese’s number comes up. “It’s a big deal for our show, it’s never happened before,” Nolan says of Tuesday’s episode, the second in a three-episode arc that began with last week’s “Endgame.” “The man in the suit is finally front and center, so the question becomes, how’s he going to get out of this one?”

Nolan continues: “It will test all of the aspects of the evolution of these characters that we’ve seen over the last three seasons: what they mean to each other, what they’d be willing to do for each other. It all kind of comes to a climax in this episode.”

But what about poor Detective Fusco (Kevin Chapman), who’s been teetering on the edge of grave danger? (Let’s face it: He’s looked like he’s heading into grave danger since season 1.) READ FULL STORY

'Person of Interest': Michael Emerson teases the mystery of the Machine, what's next for Finch

Michael Emerson is no stranger to being on a successful show with a complicated plot, having spent five seasons as creepy Others leader Ben Linus on Lost. On Person of Interest, Emerson applies his signature air of mystery — along with a limp — to play genius tech billionaire Harold Finch. But unlike Ben, Finch is the hero, using his skills and the Machine, the computer system he built that predicts future crimes, to track down villains with former CIA agent John Reese (Jim Caviezel).

And as the drama continues its third season, Finch is having trouble with the Machine as it begins to reject him and must deal with hacker Root (Amy Acker), who is intent on gaining control of his work.

Emerson talked to EW about what’s ahead for his character, the mystery of the Machine, and how he handles fans who, usually unknowingly, interrupt filming in the streets of New York City:

'Person of Interest': Carter and Shaw are deadly in heels for undercover mission -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Reese and Finch have called in some backup for their latest undercover mission — mainly because this is one they certainly couldn’t do on their own.

In tonight’s episode of Person of Interest, the duo calls upon Carter, Shaw and Zoe Morgan, for help in luring a chameleon playboy who is either a predator or someone else’s imminent prey. And despite having to don some unconventional ass kicking attire, we think they’re more than up for the task.

Below, watch a clip from the episode, airing tonight at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

'Person of Interest': Sarah Shahi teases 'a lot more killing'

Tonight’s season 3 premiere of Person of Interest (10 p.m. ET on CBS) starts off with a bang, according to Sarah Shahi, whose ex-assassin Shaw, like Amy Acker’s asylum-housed hacker Root, has been upped to a series regular: “Shaw kills, like, 10 people in the first 30 seconds, all while doing it in, like, a little tight dress,” Shahi says. “At the moment, she’s the TV version of Salt.”

What can we expect as the season progresses? “There’s just gonna be a lot more killing,” Shahi says, with a laugh. “Another interesting thing is we’re gonna go a bit deeper into the characters’ personal lives, and specifically with Shaw, we get to see why she is the way she is.”

'Person of Interest' launches Facebook app: Get the details (...and watch an exclusive clip from season 3!)

There’s only one week to go before Person of Interest returns for a third season, but starting today, fans need only look as far as their own Facebook walls to find out the next person of interest!

The show today launched a Facebook app (via its official page) that allows fans to submit and edit an image of themselves from their own  account that will then be assigned a location and threat level (by The Machine, of course). Fans then have the opportunity to submit the completed image to POI producers at Warner Bros. Television and possibly be seen in an upcoming episode.

Executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman first teased the new feature during their panel at Comic-Con this summer.

Meanwhile, in further celebration of the show’s upcoming return on Sept. 24, EW has an exclusive clip from the season premiere to share. In it, Root is having a subtext-filled chat with her psychiatrist (the poor guy has no idea what he’s dealing with). READ FULL STORY

'Comic-Con': Joss Whedon favorite Amy Acker upped to series regular on 'Person of Interest'

It looks like the Whedonverse truly is the center of Comic-Con 2013: At the panel for CBS’ Person of Interest, it was revealed that Joss regular Amy Acker has been promoted to series regular for season 3.

Acker most recently starred in Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing and first teamed with the director in Angel. Now she can get a little more comfortable as cyber-hacker Root on Person of Interest when the show returns September 24 at its new day and time: Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

'Person of Interest': See the show's Easter egg-filled Comic-Con poster -- EXCLUSIVE


There’s so much for Person of Interest fans to analyze in this EW exclusive poster that we don’t even know where to begin ourselves. But executive producer Jonathan Nolan sums up the theme nicely, saying: “In light of the news about PRISM, we felt this poster celebrated both our panic at America’s descent into an Orwellian nightmare and our excitement over all the free marketing we’re getting out of it.”

The poster will be available to fans at Comic-Con this weekend, and fans on-site also have a chance to see the cast and producers live, when they participate in a panel Saturday at 4 p.m. in room 6BCD. Nolan, fellow EP Greg Plageman, and stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi are set to appear. Recurring guest star Amy Acker will also be on hand.
