What I’m Watching: Blindspot

Blindspot: Season 1, Episode 17 “Mans Telepathic Loyal Lookouts” (B-)

I noted last week that I wasn’t sure how I fond I was of having David appear as a physical hallucination to Patterson, and this episode featured him almost more than anyone else. These tattoos really don’t lead to good places, as evidenced by the imaginary David leading Patterson down a trail that got her knocked out, tied up, and ready to be sacrificed as soon as the time was right. Not telling anyone what she was looking into was her first mistake, something she should have considered since David could have been saved had it not been for his solo work. Fortunately, everyone knows her well enough to realize that her being late even just an hour or two was cause for concern, and though she nearly froze to death and got shot, she was rescued just in time. It’s hard to believe that an elected official would be complicit in such things when he was so visible, and I feel like that only happens in TV or movies, whereas it’s usually sex addiction, prostitutes, or cheating in real life that leads to the downfall of politicians. Jane is connecting quite a bit with Oscar, opening up to him and trusting the information that he gives her as accurate and honest. Sarah just won’t give up trying to figure out why Edgar stopped seeing her, and he’s doing his best to keep her safe while he’s obviously being watched. Bringing Bethany into the circle of trust was a smart idea, but Tasha is going to be on their heels trying to get information to get out of her own sticky situation.
