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.
