Person of Interest Creators on Episode 100's Big Twist

Warning: Full spoilers for the May 31st Person of Interest, “The Day The World Went Away,” below.

The 100th episode of Person of Interest was a hugely eventful one, and ultimately a tragic installment that saw the team losing one of their own – even as the Machine took on a very familiar persona.
I spoke to Person of Interest’s executive producers, Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman, about the death of Root (Amy Acker) in “The Day the World Went Away,” how and why they chose to kill her and how Root lives on, in a way, thanks to the Machine taking on her personality (and voice) for itself.

Utah’s Mobilight International knows a few things about building rugged trailers designed to roll over tough, foreboding terrain. It butters its bread by building mobile light towers for use at mines, oil fields, and other job and event sites. The company recently brought that experience over to the recreational camping and overland market with the Base Camp, a tough steel box built for exploration, adventure and a bit of backcountry comfort.

Person of Interest Actor on the Huge Change to Their Role

Warning: Full spoilers for the May 31st Person of Interest, “The Day The World Went Away,” below.
The 100th episode of Person of Interest was a huge – and hugely sad – one, as Root (Amy Acker) was killed protecting Finch (Michael Emerson). But with just three episodes left, it was also clear this wasn’t the end for Acker on the series, as the Machine, which Root worked so hard to help, took on her voice and persona, becoming more of a full character than ever before.
I spoke to Acker about this big turn of events, when she found out and what she felt about Root’s fate. We also discussed the incredibly popular Root/Shaw relationship in relation to this twist and what it was like to find herself for the second time, after Angel, finding out she was being killed off on a series, yet would continue on as a god-like entity.

Arrow Star Blasts Suicide Squad Film for Ruining TV Plans

Willa Holland, who stars as Speedy in Arrow, has come forward to voice her frustration with the way in which Warner Bros. is handling the separation of its DC Comics film and television universes, noting the company could learn a few things from Marvel.
“Marvel does it in their own weird way, the mash between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and the movies and stuff,” she said at MCM London Comic-Con (via Mirror). “So it’s a little upsetting because you know it is possible and it can be done and how good it would be if it was done.”
Both Holland and co-star Katrina Law noted that Arrow’s Stephen Amell and The Flash’s Grant Gustin would “kill it” if they were given the opportunity play their respective heroes on the big screen. Instead, Gustin’s role is being portrayed by Ezra Miller, with Holland noting that “basically you’re giving the world two different Flashes all of a sudden.”
