Person of Interest actress Sarah Shahi recently revealed some insight about her character Shaw and what to expect from future episodes.
When asked by TVLine what Root (Amy Acker) wants from her in the upcoming episode, Shahi quipped, "What does Root not want with me?" is a better question."
The next episode, titled Mors Praematura, features Root using Shaw to fulfill a mission for The Machine.
"Without giving away too much, we know the Machine is talking to Root and she's on a mission that requires the two of us to kind of partner up," Shahi teased.
Shahi went on to describe the love-hate relationship that Shaw has with Root, revealing how much she loves it whenever the writers pair them up.
"I think Shaw loves her on one hand, because she knows it's going to be a challenge and she knows that they're both going to go down trying," Shahi explained. "Then on the other hand, she wouldn't piss on her if she were on fire. She would just sit there and watch her burn."
Shahi added that while Shaw does not consider herself a full-fledged member of Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch's (Michael Emerson) team just yet, she is still a "soldier" at heart.
"You give her a mission, you give her an order, she's going to carry it out no matter what," Shahi noted. "At the end of the day, Shaw's not a bad guy, but if she has to join in with Root for the greater good, Shaw is smart enough to do that."
Person of Interest airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on CBS.
