Blindspot s3 ep 16


Blindspot is not wasting any time this season. A couple of weeks ago, we found out REDACTED was alive, this week – thanks to Rich Dotcom and the dragonfly tattoo – Team Tat does too. Except for Zapata, who already knew, and isn’t massively popular as a result. To their credit, though, the team set their anger aside and get on with stopping the imminent attack – in an exciting twist, it’s not “today”, it’s, uh, “tomorrow” – but it’s touch and go for the devastated Patterson, who will (and should) be looking to appoint a new best friend pronto. The choice is obvious, of course: Rich’s Room of Requirement remedy is very sweet, the pair of them together are adorable and I need more PATDOTCOM in my life. (That smarmy Puritan from OPR can get knotted.)

In other news, Roman and Crawford bond over their sucky childhoods and the latter’s grandiose plan to end all violence other than that committed or authorised by himself; Roman may have something badly wrong with him other than chronic self- righteousness; and Zapata tells Reade how she feels about him two years too late for Reade and one week too late for me: I’ve only just bought my season ticket for the Zeaton train and I’m not getting off any time soon. I’m guessing Reade will come around and Rapata will get all loved up ere too long, but I really wish they wouldn’t.

    I’m delighted to see Agent Van Der Waal, because she’s played by Lauren Stamile, who I liked a lot as Pearce in Burn Notice. (More than you did, if memory serves.) I also like like her, as it happens.

    That apart, I was bored by the main plot this week, but interested in some of the peripheral details: Patterson and Zapata not being BFFs any more; Rich and Patterson bonding; Zapata’s declaration of love (although girlfriend’s attempt to put some of the blame on Reade for what happened before was pretty pathetic: HE KISSED YOU and you said you WEREN’T INTERESTED – the painkiller thing was a transparent attempt to save face); and whatever the eff is happening between Roman and Crawford.

    Yeah the main plot was perfunctory. I thought the peripheral stuff made up for it though. Patterson and Rich carried things along.

    I’d completely forgotten Agent Pearce till you mentioned her – just refreshed my memory by reading some of our old Burn Notice reviews. Good times. But no thanks to her – now I remember, she did my head in.

    I hate the Reade Zapata romance. HATE. IT. They have friend chemistry to me and nothing romantic. I have no interest in a relationship between them. Also because the team doesn’t need to be coupled off. Keaton and Zapata are FAR more interesting and it drives me nuts that I’m sure Reade will backslide into cheating. Sigh.

    The Roman/Crawford plot just doesn’t interest me. I don’t care, and the come and go Australian accent makes me laugh.

    Borden was awesome and I was curious what he would have said to Patterson. He’s horrible, but his character is fascinating. Thinking back to what we first saw and this tortured soul – what a difference.

    And I love Rich.

      I don’t have terribly strong feeling in respect of #Rapata, but I’m just about in favour. (Even if I get a little irritated by ships which rely on the inability of single, attractive adults to use their words. OK, Reade hasn’t been single for a few weeks, but the point still stands.)

      Kay, I’m with you on Borden. He’s much more interesting than the turgid Roman/Crawford stuff.
