NBC knows how to compensate for leaving us – due to the holidays – without a new Blindspot episode last week! They have already let us see the photos and synopsis for episode 3×06 “Adoring Suspect”. Also, thanks to EW we have new and interesting information about the plan that Roman has with Blake. Here we go!.
In the photos we can see the return of Ritch Dotcom – how we missed him! – and the team in full action. It seems that a shootout between “the bad guys” and the team catches Ritch in the middle and Jane protects him. I can’t stop thinking about all the comments that Ritch will make in this situation. It’s going to make us laugh out loud, that’s for sure.
I really liked seeing that photo with Reade and Kurt. You see a camaraderie among them that reminds me of the old days. And I wonder what they are looking at. Reade seems amazed … do you have any theory about this?
Apart from the photos, here’s the synopsis of the episode.
12/08/2017 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) (Friday) : The team goes undercover on a movie set to stop a terrorist plot with unlikely backers. Roman (Luke Mitchell) blackmails Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) with a horrible secret about Jane (Jaimie Alexander). Also starring Rob Brown (Edgar Reade) and Audrey Esparza (Tasha Zapata) and Ashley Johnson (Patterson). Guest Starring Mary Stuart Masterson (Eleanor Hirst), Tori Anderson (Blake), Ennis Esmer (Rich Dotcom), Malcolm David Kelley (Keith Rhodes), Miguel Fernandez (Santiago), Misha Kuznetsov (Niko Popov) and Paul F. Tompkins (Booky Bentley).
Thanks to EW we have an important spoiler on Roman and his plan with Blake.
Although it seems they are two stories that are not connected to each other, Roman’s goal with Blake has a lot to do with what the team is looking for. Although the plan may not go as expected – as we’ll discover over the next four episodes or so. Martin Gero, executive producer of Blindspot says:
“That’s a huge part of the story this year, Roman and his relationship with Blake. What’s really fun is we are following the bad guy’s story in parallel to the good guy’s story. We are working one part of the problem that he’s given us with the tattoos. He’s got a goal that we’re driving toward, but now we get to see he’s also working the problem in a very different way, and part of that is this relationship, he hopes, with Blake. You’re going to see a lot more of Roman and Blake this year. That arc is one of my favorite things on the show this year, because he begins trying to manipulate her and con her, essentially, but I think he really gets caught up with her. She’s a pretty amazing woman, so that’s a source of tension as well for him this year”.
