Blindspot - Droll Autumn, Unmutual Lord  TV review

Everyone attempts to get back to normal as both Reade (Rob Brown) and Patterson (Ashley Johnson) return to work. Normal isn’t really an option, however, when the CIA agent who tortured Jane (Jaimie Alexander) shows up with a terrorist (Mark Ivanir) who has key information about an imminent attack in New York. Hoping to get his son a life-saving heart transplant, the terrorist agrees to trade that information to the CIA, but when things go badly on the operating table it falls to the FBI to pick up the pieces and find the terrorist cell before their attack.

Blindspot - If Beth

Blindspot continues its Second Season themes of painting the terrorist organization which tattooed most of Jane‘s (Jaimie Alexander) body in enigmatic clues, wiped her memory, locked her in a trunk, and dumped her in Times Square as the more likable and trustworthy organization between themselves and the FBI. Brought further into the fold, Jane learns a bit more about Sheppard (Michelle Hurd) and the events which led her to become involved with Sandstorm. Meanwhile everyone at the FBI seems inexplicably blind to the fact that their actions and attitudes (torture, distrust, anger, contempt, revulsion, etc.) towards Jane could be pushing her further into the welcoming bosom of dangerous, but at least accepting, individuals they are relying on Jane to take down.

Blindspot - Hero Fears Imminent Rot

While the rest of the team is busy hunting the group responsible for a series of bombings around New York, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) is given a test by Sheppard (Michelle Hurd). Although Jane will fail her assignment to kill as ordered to by Sandstorm, Roman (Luke Mitchell) will step in to cover for his sister. Shaken from the experience, but now accepted by the organization, Jane is offered some ominous words of wisdom from her brother stating he will do whatever it takes to bring back the sister he lost before Sandstorm wiped Jane’s memories. Roman also suggests Sandstorm’s plans will now proceed quickly (which would be news to both the show’s writers and its audience).

Blindspot - Heave Fiery Knot

Given the mission from Sandstorm, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) and the FBI investigate one of her tattoos that leads the team to a corrupt DEA agent (Ed Moran) selling government-captured guns, including stinger missiles, to drug cartels. Continued to be frozen out by her former friends (who let her be tortured in a CIA black site for months) while seeing the the Sandstorm missions expose corruption and take down dangerous people, Jane continues her internal debate on which side she should be fighting. Weller‘s (Sullivan Stapleton) distancing while dealing with his father’s death and the truth about the woman he hoped Jane Doe was isn’t helping matters.

Sending her back in undercover, a wounded Jane runs into another hazily-remembered face (Luke Mitchell) from her past who leads her straight to Shepherd (Michelle Hurd), the allusive head of Sandstorm.
