Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s return episode of Blindspot.
Well, that was a doozy.
Blindspot returned for the remainder of the second season on Wednesday night, with an episode that had everything you’d want from the action drama: an explosive death, another internal leak, an ultimatum that may change the team dynamic, and an episode-ending abduction.
Jane (Jaimie Alexander), Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) and company finally gained an upper hand against Shepherd (Michelle Hurd) and Sandstorm, after learning that Shepherd implanted a bug in Patterson’s (Ashley Johnson) tooth in order for her to gain significant intel. After spreading misinformation to lure Shepherd’s minions into a trap, Patterson came face to face with her ex and mole, Borden (Ukweli Roach), only to witness Borden sacrifice himself by blowing up the cabin.

Season 2 of Blindspot has been hit and miss. With Blindspot Season 2 Episode 10, the show starts to put itself back on the right track, but still has some underlying concerns to fix even as it spins its story off in a new direction.
"Nor I, Nigel, Aka Leg In Iron" picks up immediately after the events Blindspot Season 2 Episode 9. It's literally right afterward – Weller and Nas still have dirt on their clothes from the explosion that killed a dozen FBI agents, and Blindspot wastes no time in showing us that it was Patterson who took the bullet.
It's really not a shocking reveal if you think about it. The victim was either Patterson or Borden, and Patterson is the only one that has any true emotional value to the audience anymore. Now that we know that Borden is Sandstorm's mole we don't care if he gets shot, set on fire or stuffed into another duffel bag. »
