Blindspot News

blindspot-tv-series Blindspot has tapped Kristina Reyes (Shades of Blue) and Tori Anderson (No Tomorrow) to recur during Season 3, EW.com reports. Reyes will debut in Episode 5 as Avery, a socialite with a complicated past who crosses paths with Weller, while Anderson will play a potential love interest for Roman.

Shepherd won’t be reappearing in Jane Doe’s life anytime soon.

Series creator Martin Gero has confirmed for TVLine that Michelle Hurd — who was a series regular on the NBC drama’s sophomore season — is not currently slated to appear on Season 3. In the May 17 finale, Shepherd’s plan to take over the U.S. government was foiled, and viewers last saw Hurd’s character getting interrogated by Archie Panjabi’s Nas.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN SEASON THREE

In the wake of the two-year time jump with which the series ended Season 2, “new characters are coming in that have a very heavy connection to Jane, people that she didn’t remember. Jane has a massive secret and so does Weller; and Season 3 hints at upcoming flashbacks to fill in the blanks of that 24-month gap in time.

Series creator Martin Gero has confirmed that Roman had something to do with Jane’s tattoos lighting up in the Season 2 finale, but it’s not about Sandstorm. It’s not about taking over the American government.  Luke Mitchell is a series regular this year. He’s in every episode. He’s our main bad guy, and first and foremost, he’s really hurt. Jane is the closest person to him in the world, and she chose Weller and the FBI over him. He’s been hurting about that. This isn’t the only reason for the tattoos, but there’s certainly a punitive part of the tattoos where he’s trying to imprison Jane by them in many ways.

Season two finale recap:

After FBI Director Hearst tells Jane that she can go anywhere she wants after the Sandstorm takedown is wrapped up, Jane toys with the idea of going to California. Especially when Weller didn’t urge her to stay after taking down Sandstorm. After Weller admits to Jane that he loves her, Jane decides to stay at the bureau. The episode jumps forward by two years, where we catch up with Jane climbing the side of a mountain without any harness, or equipment.

Jane is now living with a group of monks in the mountains and for reasons unknown, she says she can never return home. Jane and Weller are married… or were, at some point. When Weller arrives in Jane’s tent that night, much to her surprise, Jane’s first observation is that he’s still wearing his wedding ring.

Patterson, Reade and Zapata have gone missing, and their presumed kidnapper left behind a metal box with Jane’s name on it. Thus far, no one’s been able to unlock it, but when Jane and Weller both clutch the box at the same time, it opens to reveal a curved piece of metal displaying the same bird that’s inked on Jane’s neck.

Weller holds the metal up against Jane’s corresponding tattoo, which sends a purple glow across Jane’s body, lighting up all of her tattoos along the way.

Blindspot Season 3 premieres Friday October 27

Blindspot – Lepers Repel

blindspot-tv-seriesAs the FBI copes with a tragedy, Weller finds himself the center of a surprising event. Jane faces an uncertain future. Eleanor Hurst, Sam’s replacement turns up and introduces herself to Jane.

Kurt manages to track down the ambulance Roman and Mother are using to transport the nuclear bomb and there’s a struggle to overpower them, with jane facing off against Roman. At one point she has him cornered but she hesitates about shooting him, while Kurt secures Mother in the back, and uses defibrillator paddles to disable to beacon the glider used to track the satellite’s position that she swallowed. When Kurt collapses in Jane’s arms he tells her not to move to California, and to stay with him. He tells her he loves her; then he passes out.

Jane is offered a new life now that Sandstorm have been stopped. The case is finally closed. The Team are celebrating over at Kurt’s apartment.

With Mother about to be tortured by Naz, Jane has to put into perspective what a new lease of life could mean for her. After the Team leave Kurt and Jane alone at his apartment she says that she loves him too, and they make out – and more.

In the final two minutes of the episode we get a time jump:

It’s two years later and Kurt is wearing a wedding ring. Jane comments that he’s still wearing it. She’s not wearing hers anymore.

Jane’s in a remote location climbing an imposing rock face. Kurt came to meet with her because the FBI have received a silver box with her name emblazoned onto it, and inside is a key that both Jane and Kurt have to hold to activate. Some of the Team members are missing presumed dead.

Kurt notices that the key has the same design as one of the tattoos on Jane’s neck, and he presses the key up against her neck.

All of a sudden her tattoos start to glow…..Jane asks what does it mean?

Stay tuned for Season 3.

Blindspot – Senile Lines

blindspot-tv-seriesTwo children are arguing. Eli pushes Amber out of the window, and she’s found dead by her Foster Mother.

Roman leaves Jane at the safe house. She reminds him he promised to see the therapist as part of his conditions of release.

The D.A. thinks the FBI aided and abetted Sandstorm. Kurt says it’s not going to happen and they should focus on tracking the bank accounts Roman gave them. Patterson gets a hit on one of Jane’s tattoos and looks into it.

Reid wakes up in the hospital after being beaten to a pulp outside a bar when trying to score drugs. His room mate Travis is a chatty man. Reid refuses to give the hospital his insurance information. Travis says he has PTSD and recognises the same symptoms in Reid. He’s in denial, and shuts Travis down, but he keeps talking about being in Iraq and suffering from liver and kidney issues from too much drinking. He tells Reid he needs to talk about what happened to him with his Coach. Reid tells him everything before he checks out of the hospital. He phones Zappatta and asks her to come over to watch the video he stole from his Coach.

Patterson presents her findings into the hourglass tattoo. Amber Wallace was in a foster home funded by a non-profit which is part of a shell company connected to a foundation. Jane wants to bring Roman in on the case, Kurt’s not keen but then agrees. Roman’s in. Patterson tells Kurt what happened at the deposition. Eli had a music teacher who lived near the bodega he tried to rob, and the working theory is that Eli was headed to the teacher’s house.

The D.A. turns up demanding the Team attend the depositions or face a suspension. Patterson is first, while Kurt and the Team go to the foster home to investigate Amber’s murder. They enter the crime scene and look around. All six kids are missing by the time the authorities arrived. Eli was caught on surveillance trying to rob a bodega in Yonkers.

Patterson is questioned about Dr Borden (Nigel Thornton) and how she uncovered him being a terrorist connected to Sandstorm. He asks her about the chip Sandstorm acquired. Jane aborted the mission to save Roman.

Zappata is next to be interviewed. The D.A. learns Naz Kamal gave the order to enter the building that later led to the death of many FBI Agents. He questions why Kurt was absent, and Zappata tells him about the emergency with his pregnant girlfriend.

At the music teacher’s house they find Eli hiding outback. He says he didn’t kill Amber, and that ‘they’ did.

Patterson asks for Amber Wallace’s autopsy results but the Morgue had just transferred the body at the request of the family.  The transfer papers are fake, and the van is later found burned out. No trace of the body. The medicine capsule tells Patterson who the manufacturers are. A Polish researcher looking to get the drugs approved by the FDA. They ask Eli to meet with the Doctor to flush him out so they can arrest him, and rescue the other children. Eli calls him and the Doctor leaves a message which the Team trace to a warehouse in Queens. After a shootout they children are found but the Doctor is gone. Roman frees the children while Jane and Kurt battle with the guards. The Doctor tries to wipe his hard drives but Zappatta seures him in handcuffs. Eli goes missing from the hospital but he goes to the Foster Mother’s room with scissors in his hand, angry the Doctor paid her to give the children the drugs. Kurt manages to talk him around and he drops the scissors.

Jane’s turn to be interviewed is awkward. The D.A. asks if she’d ever been in a romantic relationship with Kurt. Next, she’s asked about drugging Roman to wipe his memory and then taking him to the FBI, without instruction from Kurt. She’s asked about where her loyalties lie, as she’s not even an FBI Agent.

Eli is interviewed. He ran away after Amber jumped from the window. The Foster Mother was giving them pills, and it made them messed up. Amber was getting worse, and then just jumped. A Doctor dropped by to check on them now and again. He couldn’t name the Doctor. Eli has one of the pills and wants to know what it contains. Anti-depressants mixed with other compounds that creates aggressive side effects. Illegal drug testing on children in Foster care. The Doctor detoxes all the children and tells the Foster Mother he has to kill them; and says they can’t risk being prosecuted for this.

Kurt is interviewed about his relationship with Jane. He mentions they go out for beers sometimes. He suspects that Kurt’s working for Sandstorm as Shepherd paid for his schooling, and put Jane into his life.

Kurt puts Zappatta in charge of the Sandstorm operation so the Team can still take them down. Kurt wants to stand down so the Tem and the mission can be protected. Naz goes to the D.A. and makes a statement. She confesses to being the one who took the missteps and sent Jane in as an operative, missed that Dr Borden was a terrorist, and sent the Team in to the Sandstorm compound explosion that killed FBI Agents; and says she alone deserves to suffer the consequences of her actions. She then threatens to open an investigation into Matthew if he doesn’t drop the investigation. Naz tells Kurt what she’s done, and he’s angry but she insists. The Team drink a toast to her courageous effort. She gives Kurt the list of names that goes with the bank accounts linked to Sandstorm.

We see Mother in Bangkok with her Team. She has a truck filled with oil drums emblazoned with nuclear warning symbols and warns them to avoid the Western hemisphere for a while.
