As we previously mentioned, when the first season started, former billionaire Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) and ex CIA operative John Reese (Jim Caviezel) raced against the clock to prevent violent crimes before they could happen. With the help of the artificial intelligence known as The Machine, they managed to save innocent lives right when their numbers popped up. But they never expected to go up against an even greater threat known as Samaritan.
In our recent recaps, in its fifth season, Detective Lionel Fusco (Kevin Chapman) has uncovered a conspiracy that leads back to Samaritan’s master plan for world domination. Even after being tortured and manipulated by Mr. Greer (John Nolan)’s simulations, Shaw believes there is still hope for her in reuniting with her friends after hearing Root’s message. With Samaritan’s threat coming closer than ever, will Finch and Reese arm the Machine with weapons to fight back?

MStars News: How does this 100th episode feel different than being on Angel?
Amy Acker: This is my third show that’s reached 100th episodes. In the other two, all we got was a cake! [Laughs] This is very exciting! I couldn’t expect it! And yet, it’s great to be here! We have a wonderful cast. There are so many people who made it possible. I feel like we’re a small part of the puzzle. And I’m glad we get to eat cake! [Laughs]
MS: What does the 100th episode mean to you?
Sarah Shahi: You know, I have never been part of a show that’s gone for this long before. And I didn’t start with the show. In a way, I feel like I’m riding off on someone’s coattail. I didn’t do this! I’m satisfied to be part to such quality television. The fans have been so invested in. I feel very fortunate that I get to celebrate with all these people, because I feel like myself and I can’t take credit for this. It’s a polite thing. Michael, Jim, and Chappie…it’s their celebration! I’m here for the journey! [Laughs]
