Taraji P. Henson Returning to CBS’ ‘Person of Interest’ (Sort of..)

Taraji P. Henson Returning to CBS' 'Person of Interest' (Sort of..)

Well, you can’t
blame CBS, or the producers of “Person of Interest” for trying. Everyone else is jumping on the “Empire” tip to help boost their rating numbers.

So it was reported
today that Taraji P. Henson will, in fact, be returning to the series in her
role of Joss Carter. “But wait a minute!!” I can hear you saying. “Wasn’t her character
killed off?”

She was indeed, which is why Henson will be returning to the show in the form of flashbacks
involving a case that lead character John Reese (played by Jim Caviezel) is working on, that Carter was not able to
solve.

Yes, that is something
of a cheat, but maybe it’ll attract some “Empire” viewers anyway.

The episode
is reportedly scheduled to air on April 14th.
