Here’s some Person of Interest Scoop from Sandra Gonzalez’s Inside TV: The Spoiler Room Chat; Taken from the February 19, 2013 Post.




If Jason Bourne and Catwoman had a daughter, it would be agent Samantha Shaw, Sarah Shahi’s character on this Thursday’s Person of Interest. Her words. And with a description like that, Shahi says “it was kind of impossible not to do it.”

So what exactly brings Shaw into the fold? That’s hard to explain without ruining a few secrets about this special episode, but what Shahi could say was that Shaw crosses paths with Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) after her number comes up. But their first encounters don’t go exactly as planned.

“The first couple of times they try to save me, I don’t know who the f— they are, so I try to kill them,” she laughs. But her survivor’s spirit is a result of Shaw’s damaged past, she explains. “All she knows is that she’s has nowhere to go. Her own country has turned against her and she has no idea who these guys are. She feels like she can’t trust anybody but herself.” (Tease: By the end of the episode, Reese and Finch might work their way into her good graces.)

Thursday won’t be fans’ only taste of Shaw. The character is set to return, and Shahi says she’d jump at the opportunity to do so. “The dynamic is great and working with [Caviezel and Emerson] is so great — even the tiniest look is full of so much,” the former Fairly Legal star says. “There’s TV and then there’s Person of Interest.”
