Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) is back in Blindspot and it’s just as good as season one. When we left Jane, Weller and the rest of the team, Mayfair had been killed and Jane was taken into custody by the NSA. There is a new Director of the New York field office of the FBI and Weller is the Assistant Director, for now. The team has been trying to find her for the past three months, but no sign of her, I wonder why? Hmmm, anyway.
The first season was all about following the tattoos, Jane’s past and her handlers. With her away from the team, what can we really expect to see from her and where will it lead us? Weller (Sullivan Stapleton), Zapata (Audrey Esparza), Patterson (Ashley Johnson) and Reed (Rob Brown) are running down criminals that aren’t related in anyway to what they had done for the year prior, and that could make things stale and pretty uneventful for the team. Will the action pick up? If you don’t think so, then you might be crazy. It isn’t long into the episode before the action picks right back up and there is some serious ass kickings.
In season two we have some new additions in characters right away and they look pretty amazing so far. Jane’s love interest Oscar is gone, but welcome Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D veteran Luke Mitchell to the show as an “operative.” Let’s just say, after the first episode you will be pretty shocked to see what the writers of Blindspot have in store for his character. Archie Panjabi plays the Head of the NSA’s “secret division” that has been watching Jane and the rest of the team since she appeared in a bag in Times Square. Michelle Hurd is the other addition who will haver her role unraveled at the end of the first episode.
The Blindspot production team always keep us on our toes and coming back for me. Between the cast, the writers, producers and everyone else, they do some crazy things that make you love the show. The second season premiere had intrigue, action, drama and everything in between. Keep checking back for more on Blindspot episodes with us here at Wingman Magazine.
