Blindspot Season 2 – Why Let Cooler Pasture Deform

blindspot-tv-seriesAfter Jane discovers that Sandstorm is gearing up for an imminent attack, she risks everything to send a secret SOS to her FBI team. Only, when the message gets through to the FBI’s operational command, it turns everything she’s worked for on its head.

Mother reveals she set Jane up, and knows she would tell the FBI about their mission. The threat remains, and Jane was right to believe it was real, but its not going down when and where Jane suspects it to be.

Jane’s phone call to Patterson to alert Kurt and the others to Sandstorm’s plan to target the power grid is a trap. She’s drawn them to a disused building, thinking Sandstorm operatives are inside, and they all pile in, complete with bullet proof vests, but its a trap.

Explosives are rigged to detonate the moment Mother pushes the button, and she does, all the while regaling Jane about how she was hand chosen to join Sandstorm, and her childhood with her ‘brother’ Roman wasn’t as fractured as she recalled.

We are treated to the back story on Dr Borden; a volunteer running a clinic with his Wife at a Doctor Without Borders outpost where Jane’s body landed after her Team were all taken out. Mommie dearest shows Jane the room where she was tattooed prior to being dropped off in Times Square in a bag for the FBI to find. This whole time Sandstorm knew Jane was still working with the FBI instead of furthering their cause.

The new relationship growing between Dr Borden and Patterson is fragile. Imagine her surprise when she catches him slipping on his old wedding ring – the one with the elaborate detail Jane had described to Patterson when they were first unravelling the mysteries her tattoos posed. Jane had described the unique ring which Dr Borden now tries to hide from Patterson. She draws her weapon and says its clear now that he’s working with Sandstorm, and has been feeding them intel this whole time. That’s how they were always one step ahead of the FBI. She arrests him but the chase begins through the house, and it won’t end well.

The explosion Mother sets off takes out two FBI team members. Kurt was lured away from the op by a fake phone call which claimed his expectant girlfriend had been in a car accident and was laid up in the local hospital.

When Kurt learns it was a hoax, he radios Patterson and tells her to warn the Team that its a trap, and to abort the mission but the comms are down, and Patterson can’t get through.

Mother had set off the explosion; Jane tied to a chair, sobbing, thinking her man and her friends are dead. Then the fight begins. Jane works her ties loose and a three way fight between her, Mother and her brother Roman ensues, but though Mother and brother end up wounded, Jane dashes off into the night with Roman in tow.

Reade is pinned under a massive boulder. His legs are crushed. Naz sits with him, and tries to cry for help, tapping a pipe against a steel pipe to attract the first responders. Kurt turns up with the paramedics and they pull him free just before the whole thing starts to collapse. He pulls Naz free at the last moment.

When the show returns in January, it will be a different dynamic now that we know Dr Borden is an operative with Sandstorm.

Grey’s Anatomy – You Haven’t Done Nothin

greys-main-13

Alex makes a decision about his future when it looks like he’ll be going to jail. In the meantime, Richard wants to know why Eliza is at Seattle Grace as victims of a building collapse are brought in.
Learning that she was being called to testify at Alex’s trial, Jo finally confessed to her former almost-fiancé that she was married to an abusive husband from whom she’d run away (and might have to again). Rather than put her through that, Karev decided — over Meredith’s strenuous objections — to plead out and go to prison for two years.
Amelia, she left a heartfelt note/ letter for Owen and then took off; but she’ll be back in about three episodes time to explain her indecision about having a baby with her new husband.
Richard was told his intern program was outdated, and Maggie started a whole campaign to save it – and his job.

how-to-get-away-with-murder-davis-posterWhi

Oh My God. What an amazing, emotional, tear-jerking episode, and the perfect cliff-hanger for the mid-season finale. When the show returns in January, there will be one less member of the Keating Five.

Who’s Dead?

spoiler-zone-logo

 

 

If you don’t want to know who’s body was pulled from Annalise’s burning house, don’t read any further.

In true HTGAWM style the mystery was solved, only to be replaced with another mystery! Who is dead now becomes WHY and WHO committed the murder? Let’s recap.

We continue with flashbacks and back story, but you know how the stories linger and weave their threads of misdirection and flash forward with little snippets of future story lines, this was one of those episodes. We were going to have to wait out the whole episode before the reveal – #WHOISDEAD

While at the hospital, Frank calls Bonnie, and she tells Frank that Laurel’s pregnant.

A.D.A Renee calls Nate’s phone asking him where he is.

Connor turns up at the hospital, much to Oliver’s relief.

The Coroner starts to record her findings on the body pulled from the burning house. Victim is a black male. Extensive burns…..

The back stories this week:

The students get their exam results, and all have passed. They have champagne to celebrate.

Cue Annalise whispering in the hallway with Wes – Frank’s gone. Wes seems relieved.

Asher answered Michaela’s phone call from her Mother – she’s coming to see Michaela. She left her husband and asks if she can stay. Michaela tries to convince her to live elsewhere, and they start slinging dirt at each other. Turns out that when Michaela was a baby she was found living in a disgusting trashy trailer, and the Mom reminds her that she was the one who rescued her.

Annalise goes to see Renee about the fact she is now sleeping with Nate in her awkward effort to make nice and end their hatred of each other. Annalise accuses her of stalking her; which Renee denies. Nate later goes to visit Renee and she confirms the DA’s office is not investigating Annalise. Nate asks if she hired him to get back at Annalise, and she denies it. Nate ends things, saying it shouldn’t get more complicated.

Annalise tells Nate the DA’s office only hired him as an investigator to get back at Annalise, and he’s the one that’s ratting on her to the Police. Nate denies it. He says walking away from her woke him up and he’s done being her bitch.

Wes later gets a call from his Attorney telling him to get down to the Police station.

Annalise gets drunk at home and starts burning the Mahoney papers from her boxes of files. She hears all the arguments she’s had with everyone echo in her mind. She calls round at Bonnie’s asking to see Frank, and says they’re all going to jail. Bonnie feeds her soup and hides the vodka. They discuss her sleeping with Frank, and Bonnie says it didn’t mean anything. They kiss, and Bonnie tells her to get some rest. She tells Frank the DA’s office is conducting an investigation into Annalise and he is the only one who can fix it.

Laurel and Wes get into an argument about Frank knowing about their relationship. Wes walks off.

Connor and Oliver talk, finally, but they’re not getting together anytime soon.

Wes goes to the Police station with his Attorney. Two Detectives question Wes about a body they found in the woods and then they ask him about Rebecca. They offer him immunity from murder charges in exchange for dirt on Annalise. He rejects the immunity paperwork, making amendments to it, and passes it back to the Detectives. His Attorney questions his motives, and so he fires his Attorney.  Nate watches the Attorney walk out.

Annalise calls her interns one by one and tells them to meet her at the house, and she’ll explain later.

Connor does the deed with Thomas and then afterwards, he brushes him off when Thomas asks him to have dinner. Connor says it was just sex, and not a date, then leaves.

Nate goes over to Annalise’s house. He calls out her name but nobody answers. He sees the vodka bottle on the floor and the fireplace stuffed full of papers, and then goes up to her bedroom but finds the house completely empty.

Annalise is sitting with Oliver in the pro-bono clinic and tells him she’s in trouble. Says he can help, and that they’re all in trouble. She asks him to hack into the DA’s office.

Laurel sends Wes a text message and then she goes into the house.

There’s an explosion.

Bonnie tells the Keating Five that its Wes who died in the fire.

Meggie comforts Laurel as they watch the news broadcast.

Wes had almost signed the Immunity deal with the Police. Annalise had left a voicemail on his phone while he was at the Police station. He left before signing the deal. We cut to the Coroner’s Office where the body pulled from the fire lays on the steel table. Nate walks in and asks the cause of death.

The sheet is pulled back.

WES is dead.

Nate goes to visit Annalise and tells her Wes was already dead before the fire.

Who murdered Wes?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grey’s Anatomy The Room Where It Happens

greys-main-13We’re still processing this week’s episode, it was that awful. A liver surgery that has Drs Webber, Hunt, Edwards and Meredith all having flash backs to traumatic events in their childhood or earlier surgical careers.

Meredith has to explain to her suddenly much older children that Derek is dead. Cute little Zo-Zo is gone, people.

Hunt has to come to terms with losing a feisty female friend in his Army career.

Webber recounts a tale about someone who played the cello in a locked room and forbid the children to distract her unless it was an absolute emergency, and then she dies from pancreatic cancer, having been given just 6 months to live.

Stephanie has flashbacks to her childhood, and recalls perfectly a similar surgical procedure from a textbook that ultimately saves the patient on their table.

Even the  music was off this week. There was nothing about Alex Korev and Andrew, or any of the other storylines. WE were left shaking our heads and wondering what the hell is this episode about??????

Let’s hope next week’s episode is much much better.
