“Blindspot” season 2 will finally reveal Jane Doe’s (Jaimie Alexander) real identity, but will the rifts and tensions her treacherous actions have caused ever be resolved?
According to Movie News Guide, Special Agent Natasha “Tasha” Zapata (Audrey Esparza) will feel particularly reluctant to accept Jane back into the team after her betrayal indirectly led to the death of Bethany Mayfair (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), the FBI assistant director who served as both mentor and ally to their team.
Furthermore, at the Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press tour held in August, executive producer Martin Gero teased via Hollywood Reporter that the first episode of the hit crime drama’s sophomore run will answer all the leftover questions from the previous season, starting with Jane’s real first name. Fans can also expect answers to their questions about Shepherd and Orion, along with details about Jane’s past.
These issues will be tackled in episode 1 so as to allow the series to move on to what season 2 is all about. Gero refused to offer any more information as it could potentially reveal significant spoilers for the upcoming season. However, Spoiler TV has posted alleged highlights for episodes 1, 2, 4, and 5 of season 2. It seems that each episode will be showing a part of Jane’s history interspersed with more cases that Kurt Weller’s (Sullivan Stapleton) team will have to solve. By episode 5, Kurt presumably gets promoted to assistant director.
Additionally, a new character, Naz Kamal, will be introduced into Kurt’s team and will reportedly serve as a soothing presence that could hopefully bring the team back together. She will be played by “Good Wife” alum, Archie Panjabi.
There are a handful of other characters that will be introduced as season 2 progresses, and all of them will serve to clarify Jane’s real identity.
“Blindspot” season 2 is scheduled to premiere on NBC on Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10 p.m. EDT, but it will move back to its usual timeslot on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m. EDT.
