Blindspot “Resolves Eleven Myths” Review (Season 2, Episode 6)

Resolves Eleven Myths

It was quite an intense episode of Blindspot last night with the FBI office under siege by a super assassin known only as the Acadian, who was believed to be a myth – at least according to Naz. But how likely are we to believe her?

Well, as the episode played out, it was clear that Naz was wrong about the assassin especially as he took down the building, nearly floor by floor. First he took out the security guards on the “holding room” level and then set up a sulfur-filled bomb in – of all things – a water cooler.

Thank God, once again, for Patterson who figured out how to at least diffuse the sulfur part by using anti-bacterial lotion, but the explosive bomb caused some damage. It was quite a scene, that’s for sure, and set- up kind an interesting con on Richdotcom, the annoying adversary who has proven a problem for the FBI team in the past.

I loved the line from Patterson, “to catch a con, you gotta hatch a con” – a con I didn’t see coming. Did anyone else see that con coming? They did such a terrific job of keeping us in the dark on that and then playing the scenes back showing Patterson being sneaky. It was just great!

They did a great job keeping Richdotcom and the presumed dead Boston in the dark, thinking they were going to get away with their own con against the FBI – not so much!! And how about Jane using the battle moves from her very disturbing dream against the Acadian to finally take him down.

And let’s focus on that bizarre dream of Jane’s for a minute. Where in the world did that come from? Does Jane still harbor feelings for Weller? Obviously she still feels something or else that dream wouldn’t have played out the way it did. The two separate sides of her personality battling for control. That was also clear with the FBI Jane wearing white (white hats for good) and the Sandstorm Jane wearing black (black hats for bat). That was quite the juxtaposition, right?

I did have problems with Zapata and Reade fighting about their cover-up of Coach Jones’s murder while they were tasked with tracking down the Acadian – do your damn job and leave everything else aside. And then there was Weller and Naz in the final scene – really we need them coupling up again. Good grief. Make it stop. Do you feel the same way?

And then there is the FBI mole leaving that note for Roman about Jane’s loyalty lying with the FBI and not with Sandstorm. Jane seems to think there is still good within Roman (but I think she is deluding herself). Will he show his true colors to her now that he is armed with this information? Or will he conduct his own (albeit probably strange) due diligence to gauge his sister’s loyalty? I really have to wonder just how bad things are going to become between Roman and Jane, and very quickly after that, between Jane, Shepherd and Sandstorm. What do you think will happen?

How do you feel about the events of last night’s episode? Please share your thoughts below.

The next new episode of the second season of ‘Blindspot’ will air on NBC next Wednesday, November 3 at 8/7c.
