Blindspot s4 ep 6

Welcome Matthew Weitz! The new Director of FBI NY HQ hasn’t exactly endeared himself to Team Tat in the past, but he comes into his own this week when the murder of a Congressman leads our heroes to a conspiracy that’s infiltrated the highest levels of government. At this point, anyone who’s watched Blindspot before will be asking “Is there any other kind?” and, in fairness, the plot’s not new but this fun, likeable Weitz is. Still a bit slimy, but in a good way: he’s LeBron entertaining, funny and the reason why the ep works as well as it does. Well, that part of it, anyway. The NotJane stuff also heats up with Fauxman out of the picture for now (Hurrah!) and Kurt turning out to be significantly brighter than he looks, but as for Zapata and her acting out/ double-agenting/ just plain breaking bad – never mind the CIA wanting to bring her in “dead”, I’m ready to shoot her myself.

    I wasn’t quite as mad about this episode as you, but I’m liking Weitz a lot. Although Patterson is obvs LeBron. I’m also a little more on board with the Zapata storyline, because I can’t quite work out what she’s up to.

    Got a bit fed up with Kurt’s dialogue; all that stuff about truth and secrets while staring at Jane. Duh. Do you think she got the hint?

      The only thing I liked about the Zapata storyline was that the CIA woman said Keaton has an affinity for Zapata. YEAH he does. The Kapata dream isn’t dead yet!

      To be honest, I’m not sure it matters what Zapata’s up to any more – she’s crossed too many lines for me to have any sympathy for her, whether she’s undercover or not. Shooting that MI6 agent in cold blood for instance.

    Weitz for the win! I love characters that grow and become solid members of the team and it looks like he’s doing exactly that. “What’s for dinner? I’m vegan. Not really.” He and Reade together have the potential to be hilarious.

    That storyline is great, Patterson and Rich are great, heck, I even like Zapata and MEM. The Jane and Kurt storyline is the one I’m now over. Mostly because it feels so dreaded one note at this point. GET A MOVE ON, SHOW. There’s only so much puppy dog Kurt I can take.

    I thought of you CJ when CIA lady said the line about Keaton/Zapata. We weren’t the only ones that noticed! Also, hope he doesn’t die. Are they keeping him half alive for a reason?
