Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you don’t want to know who was killed on ‘Person of Interest!’

Is no one on TV safe anymore?! CBS’ procedural hit Person Of Interest murked one of its main characters on the Nov. 19 episode, leaving the team down a member — and the viewers completely stunned. But hey, at least we can be thankful that Reese wasn’t the character killed off. (Watching Jim Caviezel‘s torturous death in The Passion of the Christ was painful enough!)

‘Person Of Interest’: Carter Is Shot & Killed

Taraji P. Henson‘s Detective Jocelyn Carter turned out to be the victim CBS warned us about in a promo earlier this season, but even with advance warning, nothing could prepare viewers for how sad her passing would be. Carter died in Reese’s arms, the result of a direct shot from Officer Simmons (Robert John Burke.) Reese was also shot, but clearly, he survived.

Earlier in the episode, Carter and Reese had a heart-to-heart about death — foreshadowing much? — and how close John once came to biting the bullet, pun intended. John even showed her the bullet he almost killed himself with! He told Carter that he met her shortly after his near-suicide, and that he credits her with bringing him out of that dark place.

“You changed me,” he told her, before planting a big ol’ kiss right on her mouth-piece.

Sadly, this romantic little moment would be short-lived.
