What I’m Watching: Blindspot

Blindspot: Season 2, Episode 6 “Her Spy’s Harmed” (B-)

This is going to have my last episode of this show. I had the opportunity to count how many shows I’m currently watching on a weekly basis and realized that it’s just not sustainable, and this series – which I felt I’ve just been keeping up with because it’s a popular show everyone else is watching – is definitely first on the list of those that need to go. It’s actually becoming more intriguing in a lot of ways, particularly when it comes to Jane recalling bits and pieces of her past that make her more sympathetic to Roman and Shepherd. Abandoning her mission to upload the contents of the drive to Patterson and instead save Roman from the latest gang of people trying to hurt him was an interesting twist, and it’s one that threatens to make Jane contemplate her loyalty to the right organization, something she had already started doing. Nas and Kurt’s side trip to Bulgaria was intense but managed to go the way it needed to in the end, though I do question the professionalism of them sleeping together, especially considering Kurt has already been romantically involved with two women he works with on a regular basis. Them connecting made sense, but doing so in such a sexual way didn’t seem like something Nas would do since it makes her very vulnerable, with the discovery of one of her bugs immediately complicating that. Patterson seems woefully unaware of how she’s treating Dr. Borden, and it’s a good thing that he’s literally the most understanding person in the world. I’m more than happy to say goodbye to the Edgar-murder-suspect plotline, which has now become more than a mere distraction. I’m mildly cautious about letting this show go, but I really don’t think I’ll miss it much.
