Blindspot - Hero Fears Imminent Rot

While the rest of the team is busy hunting the group responsible for a series of bombings around New York, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) is given a test by Sheppard (Michelle Hurd). Although Jane will fail her assignment to kill as ordered to by Sandstorm, Roman (Luke Mitchell) will step in to cover for his sister. Shaken from the experience, but now accepted by the organization, Jane is offered some ominous words of wisdom from her brother stating he will do whatever it takes to bring back the sister he lost before Sandstorm wiped Jane's memories. Roman also suggests Sandstorm's plans will now proceed quickly (which would be news to both the show's writers and its audience).

The bombings actually make for a small piece of the episode, but allow Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) and Naz Kamal (Archie Panjabi) to have yet another confrontation over how she is running the division. Only three weeks into the season this dynamic has already grown stale. Even less interesting are the subplots involving Patterson's (Ashley Johnson) love life and Reade's (Rob Brown) repressed memories which are used to fill out the episode.
