"Person of Interest" - Rewatch: S02E08 “Til Death”

I'm gonna butt in to say that I always thought Harold's name came from Harold Nemur from Flowers for Algernon! Since he is the creator of synthetic intelligence in the novel! And of course because it was directly referenced in the show ;)

Butt in all you want! I love hearing, er, reading people’s theories.

I read the book but it was ages ago, I forgot most of the story to be honest but I suspect you may also be right. But I find it interesting that there are so many Harolds in literature that have similar character traits. Maybe there’s something in the origin of the name?…

Sudden thought: I wonder if Harold is named after Atticus Finch. They share some important character traits, I wouldn’t be surprised. What do you think?

I do think it’s possible! I also think Harold is from Harold Allnut of the Batman comics. If you’re interested, I wrote a huge long ridiculous brainstorm of possible connections/connotations for his names in this post. 

I’m afraid my knowledge of the comic books is nonexistent because I don’t particularly like them. I once mixed up Thor with Superman and my friend still hasn’t forgiven me. I would love to reblog your post but Tumblr doesn’t let me :/ I loved reading your post, you certainly make a good point about Harold Allnut being Finch’s namesake. It’s a very interesting theory. You know, I really enjoy pieces about names and their meanings, I’m actually writing my thesis about it! I still haven’t ruled out including a chapter about Person of Interest names in it ;)

On a side note, the history of Harold Allnut just gave me a brilliant gif or fic idea. It’s terrific. You’ll weep!

PSAs time!

  • There’s a new theme in town.
  • Also slight reorganisation of links.
  • Had to give up on fic recs. I don’t read them so I had troubles managing the page.
  • Icons, however, are doing very well, and they will continue to grow.
  • IrrelevantCrimes is now also on Twitter. I’m still figuring out several things, including how to manage two accounts at the same time, but I’m settling in.
  • I know I still have some gif requests to work on and I promise I will get to them soon. I have some personal things to deal with, as soon as that’s out of the way, I’ll get to them.
