SAMANTHA GROVES/ROOT "Person Of Interest"
(portrayed by Amy Acker)
Round 6 of May Madness was completed earlier today. For the 1st time in the tournaments 5 year run, we have a repeat champion. While Dr. Lauren Lewis "Lost Girl" is the first ever 2 time champion, Samantha Groves, better known as Root, becomes the first ever repeat champion. Its been "Roots year" at this site. With her win in last years May Madness, Root/Amy Acker, has gone on to also win several BOTVAs, including Best Actress in an Action/Drama series, and now her 2nd consecutive May Madness title.
Root defeated Audrey Jensen "Scream", William Murdoch "Murdoch Mysteries", Spencer Reid "Criminal Minds", John Reese "Person Of Interest", Oliver Queen/ Green Arrow "Arrow" to get to the finals.
This years runner up, Henry Morgan "Forever" has himself had a pretty impressive 2016.... for a character that is from a show that hasnt had an episode air in 2016 & likely never will. Portrayed by Ioan Gruffudd, the winner of the 2016 Best Actor in a Sci-Fi or Fantasy Program, Henry Morgan has felt the love from the Forever fans, who still, despite the show ending many months ago, still are holding on hope someone will pick up the show.
Henry Morgan defeated Melinda May "Agents Of SHIELD, Nathan Wuornos "Haven", Arya Stark "Game Of Thrones", Lexa The Commander "The 100", 2013 champion Dean Winchester to get to the finals.
Root will be eligible for next years May Madness tournament as Person Of Interest is still airing episodes currently despite its cancellation. However, for Henry Morgan, this is likely the end of the line for this character, and the show, as it is currently not developing new episodes after a cancellation many months ago, despite its fans online voices.
