She added however that her character Root will continue to struggle with choosing between Shaw and the Machine. She explained that both are priorities to Root.
She recalled that at the end of last season, Root had to decide that if she did not do everything to save the Machine, there is also no purpose on saving Shaw.
Acker said that if indeed “Person of Interest” is on its final season, she is very optimistic that the showrunner will give a happily ever after ending to Root and Shaw. In fact, she hopes to see Root, the Machine, and Shaw live together with Bear and the twins.
“Person of Interest” stars Jim Caviezel as John Reese, a former CIA agent who was presumed dead. He is a former Green Beret / Delta Force operator and he has been burnt out and has since begun living as a vagrant in New York City, after the death of a woman he loved.
He was approached by a mysterious billionaire software genius named Harold Finch, played by Michael Emerson, who is also living under an assumed identity.
Finch tells Reese that after September 11, 2001, he built a computer system for the government that uses information gleaned from omnipresent surveillance to predict future terrorist attacks. However, he, later on, discovered that the computer was predicting ordinary crimes as well.
