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.

Jane remains frustrated for much of the the episode. Not only is she prevented from taking a measure of vengeance against the man who tortured her for months, but also she struggles with guilt over Roman (Luke Mitchell) and has to watch as a specialist (Li Jun Li) suggests Roman may be better off without his memories and the FBI should seriously consider locking him away in a mental institution. In the increasingly soap-opera style subplots the discomfort between Reade and Zapata (Audrey Esparza) continues to be an issue, and Weller‘s (Sullivan Stapleton) impending fatherhood takes a major blow, but these are mainly filler used to prolong the episode and avoid Jane (or the FBI) making some serious decisions about Roman’s future. The discovery of her brother being linked to the missing tattoo on Jane’s body isn’t likely to make those decisions any easier.
