Some news from TVLine regarding the Person of Interest finale and details on Amy’s character in MacGyver!
In your interview with Jonah Nolan and Greg Plageman about the Person of Interest series finale, they said that there was dialogue between Root and Shaw in the final scene on the phone — but it was removed. Did they share with you what that dialogue was? —Sunny
The boys did not tell me, no. So it’s a good thing I chatted up Sarah Shahi at Showtime’s TCA party, where she was in the company of husband/Shameless actor Steve Howey. When I asked what was said on the pay phone, she answered: “It was another number,” the next in what would apparently be a neverending stream of POIs. “It was Shaw being the solider, back in action again,” Shahi shared. “It was by no means an end. It was another beginning.” If only.
Do you have any extra details on Amy Acker’s MacGyver role? —Maddie
If you caught wind of any of the cynics who interpreted her role to be that of a damsel in distress, rest assured that is not the case. “She does get kidnapped, but she definitely does not need to be rescued,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov makes clear. As CIA agent Sarah Adler, “She’s a female version of George Eads’ Jack Dalton, and she’s pretty badass!”
