At this years Comic Con, the show did reveal a few things about whats in store for POS fans in the 2016 season….
“We are not sure if there is a heartbeat or if we can bring The Machine back to life,” explained POI Executive Producer Greg Plageman. “The first episode features flashbacks with Harold of what he did to The Machine and how he would do things differently—a lot of change, heartbreak. We pick up right where it left off.”
Can Shaw be trusted? Shaw (Sarah Shahi) is set to return, but can she be fully trusted? – “When she comes back, we don’t know if she is trustworthy,” admitted Amy Acker, who plays Root. “What did Samaritan do to her? But from Root’s perspective, she is on Shaw’s side and can do no wrong … Their relationship is strong.”
Jim Caviezel gave some inside info on how Reese is doing in the upcoming season… “He is very focused this year,” shared Caviezel. “The episode last year with him and Carter and her death and dealing with his feelings—this year he has a reason to bring the team together, to use the skills he has to bring them together.”
