Details for the new season of Person of Interest continue to surface, including the premiere's episode title.
The season premiere of Person of Interest's third season will be called Liberty, SpoilerTV reported Friday. The episode title has many people speculating what it could mean, with one comment under the article saying, "I wonder if the machine could be at the Statue........hmmmmm...." while another said, "I can't even comprehend on just HOW MANY meanings such a title can have. Oh god, how will I survive the summer."
Liberty will air on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. CBS moved Person of Interest from its regular Thursdays at 9 p.m. timeslot to Tuesdays at 10 p.m. for the 2013-2014 TV season. Person of Interest was the fifth most-watched show on television last season, so CBS could be betting on the show's viewers to follow it to Tuesday.
As for plot details going forward, nothing has officially been confirmed but guest star Amy Acker, who played Machine-obsessed Root in season 2, remains hopeful that producers will bring her back for season 3.
"I was really happy that I got the phone call [from The Machine] at the end," she told TVLine at the Saturn Awards on Wednesday. "So I feel like they have to at least bring me back."
In the season 2 finale, viewers last saw Root in an insane asylum receiving a phone call from The Machine.
"The Machine and Root have a very special connection - at least in her mind. So it's either perpetuating her fantasies by calling her or [something else]!" Acker said on June 21 about hoping to return, though she admitted, "nothing is officially in the books."
Acker's desire to return to the show will likely compel producers to bring her back, especially since she played such an integral part of the second season.
