Blindspot s4 ep 10


The mid-season doldrums continue. Story arc 1 – “Save Jane, save the world!” – stomps out the usual predictable beats: There’s a lead! There’s a conspiracy! Bye, cure! Hello, new lead for next time! Story arc 2, meanwhile – “WTF is Tasha doing?” – finally starts to get a move on, but since it overstayed its welcome ages ago, I don’t care. Tasha sulks, Reade sulks, the CIA stomp all over everything – zzz.

There are two very good scenes, though: Rich, in the van, talking redemption with Jane is lovely and another reminder (as if we needed one) that Rich makes everything better; and Zapata at Coma Keaton’s bedside looking distraught strikes a surprisingly genuine note of bone-deep sadness, as opposed to fear, guilt or Tasha’s default sullenness. The rest is Blindspot going through the motions.

    Well, I thought this was miles better than last week; although since, on reflection, it might have been the worst Blindspot ever, I’m not setting the bar very high. But I’ve always been more interested in Zapata, and #Rapata, for that matter.

    The show does seem to have lost its way, though. By way of contrast, The Blacklist has managed to maintain its baddie-of-the-week premise while reinventing its backstories. I’m not sure that “can we find a cure for Jane?” is going to cut it as a major theme.
