The Machine spits out 38 numbers, all members of HR. Reese (Jim Caviezel) inquires whether the Machine "blew a belt," but it's more likely that something big is going down (and because the Machine is "not a lawnmower," as Finch replies). Finch (Michael Emerson) and Reese realize that someone is attempting to take out HR. We see that Carter is the vigilante when she tells everyone she knows to lay low and smashes her phone. The look on her face shows a heavy burden.
Lol "Maybe the Machine blew a belt or something." So technically savvy, Mr. Reese #PersonOfInterest

Carter working alone with no back-up. This won't end well. #PersonOfInterest @CBSTweet

OMG Carter smashed her Bat Phone! @TherealTaraji @POIWritersRoom #PersonofInterest

Before asking Elias (Enrico Colantoni) to lay low, Carter has him talk to the Russian boss, Peter Yogorov (Morgan Spector). Of course, Elias puts his own flair on it, leaving a bullet in Yogorov's food.
"If I wanted you dead I'd be a little more creative than this." Oh, Elias! #PersonOfInterest

We soon learn what all the secrecy is about when Carter steals a shipment of Russian drugs with a grenade launcher, a punch in the face for one of the drivers, and the universal sign for "on the ground, before I shoot you with this gun" for the truck's copilot.
Reese has definitely rubbed off on Carter. #PersonOfInterest

Reese's reaction to his grenade launcher being taken = Priceless. #personofinterest

"Wait that's my grenade launcher!" Best line of the season. @PersonInterest, @POIWritersRoom

I like how Carter has adapted Reese's tactics. And grenade launcher. #PersonOfInterest

It's all a ploy to make the Russians conclude that HR has stolen the drugs, and to make HR think that the Russians want to kill them for stealing the drugs. HR also thinks that "the man in the suit" is behind the whole thing, trying to start a war between the two groups. HR is willing to go to war if the Russians do indeed attack them, which is exactly what Carter makes them believe when she shoots at Quinn with a ginormous rifle. It's at this point that the Machine begins spitting out numbers for the Russians as well.
Piting Russians vs HR hmm comes right out of the @SunTzuSaid The Art of War @PersonInterest @TherealTaraji #PersonofInterest

Carter is seriously effing things up right now like a BAMF! @TherealTaraji #PersonOfInterest

@TherealTaraji @PersonInterest Carter needed to aim a little to the left! Why she playing around with Quinn? I say: Just finish it!

Meanwhile, the episode goes heavy on Carter flashbacks, making viewers believe that this could be her swan song. One flashback involves her PTSD-inflicted ex getting a bit violent.
carters husband had PTSD? interesting twist. #PersonOfInterest @TherealTaraji

Oh my!! @lazofficial is in this episode of #PersonOfInterest.....Niiiice

In the present, that cutie-patootie ex, Paul (Laz Alonso), has gotten help and is doing well, and Carter has entrusted in him the safety of their equally nice-looking son, Taylor (Kwoade Cross). She calls them for what seems like "one last time," knowing the danger she faces.
I'm not liking this talking like you're not gonna make it @TherealTaraji @PersonInterest #PersonOfInterest #setup

I have a bad feeling about this. Carter's doing her farewell phone-calls. So many feels. #PersonOfInterest

Fusco (Kevin Chapman) attempts to help out, but Carter leaves him high and dry after a few sweet sentiments about trusting him more than anyone else. Carter thinks she can take them on by herself and keep everyone else safe, having had saved up all the surveillance evidence she needs, as well as a sworn statement from a witness. It's enough to obtain an arrest warrant for Quinn, and now all she needs is to find the right judge. Unfortunately, she makes the wrong choice, and the judge (Paul O'Brien) immediately calls Quinn.
Meanwhile, Reese and Shaw (Sarah Shahi) go out to help all the Russians HR have rounded up, but they're too late: Carter has already called in the FBI, and they save the Russians and arrest a large number of HR members. All neat and tidy!
Uhhhh Joss, WRONG EFFIN JUDGE!! #PersonOfInterest

#DectiveCarter thought of everything #PersonOfInterest or did she. Not sure where this is going
— April Contessa (@aprilcontessa) November 13, 2013
Carter planned it all so perfectly....till she chose the judge. #PersonOfInterest
— Bucket Of Sunshine (@emilybz7) November 13, 2013
When she arrives at the judge's house, she walks right into the trap: Simmons (Robert John Burke), a few other HR goons, and a tarp, all ready for her body. But then something beautiful happens: she basically let's them know that she's not stupid enough to actually trust anyone, then Reese shoots his way through the door, and they drag Quinn out to take him to the FBI. Unfortunately, there will be plenty of dirty HR cops on the way there.
Rut roh. This doesn't look good for Carter... @PersonInterest

Person of Interest has me on pins and needles. It's so good! Carter has been an absolute chessmaster badass this season.

And... many fans did not want it to end there, what with the teasing of Fusco's possible demise in the previews!
OHMYGOD! WHY IS THIS SHOW ONLY AN HOUR LONG!? *gnashes teeth* #PersonOfInterest
