Summary: The next POI is a business owner named Kruger. Reese and Shaw investigate him and they discover that somebody is trying to humiliate him and ruin his life. They find several people who were responsible, all of which who were wronged by him in the past. They were given a package on how they can ruin his life by some mysterious other person. Reese and Shaw discover this person is a custodian, Sommers. Kruger is lured out of safety by the prospect of saving a business deal he was trying to make with a man named Collier. Sommers tries to kill him but Reese stops him. Collier reveals himself as the real perpetrator, shoots Reese and kills Kruger.
The Good: This was solid stuff. The main story was decent enough and had some good twists from the usual format to make it stand out a bit more. Having Kruger be a total asshole was very unique and it made me hate him and not really care about Reese and Shaw saving his life. I was instead hooked into the episode by the prospect of seeing this character get what he deserved and it was pretty satisfying to see his life fall apart. The final twist was great because I didn't see it coming at all. I thought the Sommers reveal was the main twist, so when Collier went full evil and murdered Kruger, I was caught completely off guard. It was a great moment and sets up yet another big villain for the show.
Shaw continues to be a whole ton of fun. The fact that she doesn't conform to Reese and Finch's morals adds an extra amount of both levity and tension to the episode. She is good for laughs and also has me on the edge of my seat because it's always more likely for things to go wrong when Shaw is around.
I really like that Carter is still grieving Beecher. I've seen so many characters simply cease to think about other dead characters in following episodes, and thankfully this isn't the case here. Beecher is treated as an important part of this HR storyline and that adds to the story. I thought the Laskey story was fine build up and I'm interested to see where it goes.
The Bad: Kruger absolutely should have died in that elevator drop. It fell 40+ stories and crashed on the bottom. He should not have been able to take that landing.
The Unknown: Is Laskey a member of HR? I think it's pretty likely that he was sent to watch over Carter, though it may be another bait and switch like with Beecher.
Best Moment: The Collier reveal was great and it was a genuine surprise.
Character of the Episode: Collier.
Conclusion: This was another average POI story amped up by a great reveal at the end.
Just a university student who loves to watch TV. And criticize it like hell.
