She soon learns that the homegrown terrorist organization known as Sandstorm is well into preparations for their end game, Phase Two, and Jane is determined to find out details. Sandstorm is pretty smart, though, and they have a fail-safe mole inside the FBI that they can activate, if needed. It's no wonder they are always one step ahead of the team.
In addition to working to stop Sandstorm, the team has more than their own share of personal issues going on, aside from just seeing Nas as an interloper. Kurt gets a shocker when he discovers ex-lover Marshall Allie Knight (Trieste Kelly Dunn) is carrying his baby and he'll have some interesting decisions to make there. The Coach Jones case from last season comes back to haunt Edgar Reade (Rob Brown) and he'll have to face some potentially horrifying facts about his childhood when he asks an old friend to testify against Coach Jones. The fallout from the entire Coach Jones case will be massive and fairly devastating for Reade and also for Tasha Zapata (Audrey Esperza), as she is trying to be supportive of her best friend. Patterson (Ashley Johnson, The Last of Us) is trying to get back into the dating scene and tests the waters with Dr. Andrew Borden (Ukweli Roach), the FBI shrink, but is she really over the death of David?
As the team continues to crack tattoos on Jane's body and they stop more unspeakable events from happening, they begin to get a sense of the scope and gravity of Shepherd's plan, but Jane finds herself conflicted, not about Shepherd, but about Roman. Time and again he is there for her, but can he be turned to the side of good or is he lost forever? A split-second choice by Jane could change things forever, between her and Roman, and between the FBI and Sandstorm, or it could make all the difference in the world.
When the dust finally settles in the season finale, an entirely new mystery presents itself for next season, one which could hold nearly the entire team's fate in the balance. Here's to new beginnings.
Blindspot: The Complete Second Season takes a lot of twists and turns as the team races to stop Sandstorm. There are plenty of intense episodes, but fan-favorite Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) comes back for two more episodes. Yes! They need to continue this trend every season. You'll also see familiar faces in guest stars Zach Grenier (Entourage), Garret Dillahunt (The Last House on the Left), Dylan Baker (Spider-Man 2 and 3), Mary Stuart Masterson (Fried Green Tomatoes), John Wesley Shipp (The Flash) and Jewel Staite (Firefly, The Killing). There's also a hefty selection of special features, including featurettes from the writers' circle on the season in general; the season premiere; the secrets of the various families involved, whether they be Sandstorm, Weller's FBI team, or new relationships forming; and Zero Division. There's also an adorable featurette on (mainly) Ashley Johnson's Comic-Con experience, plus the 2016 Comic-Con Panel, which is always a joy to watch. There are also select deleted scenes, along with the gag reel, which is great.
Once again, Martin Gero and company bring a fast-paced and exciting season of mysteries to the forefront, with a path so twisty and turn-y that no one could predict the outcome. I can't wait to see what this means for Weller and his crew next season! One thing is for sure - if it is anything like the past two seasons, it will keep the audience guessing.
