What I’m Watching: Blindspot

Blindspot: Season 1, Episode 9 “Authentic Flirt” (B-)

I suppose it was only a matter of time before Kurt and Jane went on a mission together and pretended to be a couple. They really went in without knowing much, dressed to the nines and utterly unprepared for the craziness of the man they were about to meet. Rich Dotcom was quite the character, expressing no qualms about soliciting the two members of a couple he believed to be assassins and then eagerly ordering their execution as soon as he realized that they couldn’t be trusted. Kurt and Jane nearly lost a two-on-one fight with the other buyer, and even though it didn’t work so well, they did manage to sell the lie that he was a spy long enough to buy them some time. It was a convenient episode for a past girlfriend of Kurt’s to show up, and what a treat that it was in the form of Trieste Kelly Dunn, formerly of “Banshee,” though I wish that she’d been given a much bigger part. As more of her connection to Carter is revealed, Bethany is looking more and more like one of the good guys. Guerrero being stabbed definitely covers the tracks of those behind Daylight, but it’s not the much simpler solution of creating paperwork to back up their story. The most devastating development was that, after watching David tail a woman so that he could impress Patterson and win her back, he got killed. I liked him a whole lot, and I’m sure Patterson is going to be very upset and have a hard time recovering from the news.
