Coming into the second half of “Blindspot” season 2, we feel like there were two substantial cliffhangers that needed to be resolved. One of them was finding out a way in which to resolve the future of Roman after he had his memory wiped. Meanwhile, the other was learning whether or not Patterson was going to survive the betrayal from Borden.
What made the episode tonight so fascinating was just seeing how conflicted and not conflicted at all Borden was. He was not someone who strayed much from his mission, but at the same exact time also showed a great deal of sympathy for Patterson. Repeatedly, he said that he didn’t have much of a choice, and whether or not he cared for her was irrelevant. As it turns out, it actually kind of ways given that Borden’s inability to kill her meant that she was going to be able to survive when Jane and the rest of the FBI turned up to save her. Eventually she turned out to be fine, or at least she would be after she spends some time in the hospital. If she ever does get a love interest in the future, let’s hope it ends a little bit better than the last ones she’s had. She’s certainly more motivated than ever before by what she went through, and she wants to do her part in order to help take Sandstorm down now.
Here’s the big twist: In doing so in the hospital, she uncovered that they performed effectively a trial run on Jane with her tattoos, and there is one that’s been moved. What that means is a very good question.
Oh, and for the time being, Weller still has no idea as to why Shepherd still wants to keep him alive.
On the Roman front – The good news is that he has been properly corralled to a certain extent, but the bad news is that with his memory wiped, he’s not nearly as much of a used to anyone as he would have otherwise been with much of his full faculties restored. Everyone did realize that he was the key to being able to take down Sandstorm, so with that, Jane had to figure out to use her own history with him to her benefit. This was a nice callback to the pilot in some ways, where she had utterly no recollection of her past.
