‘Blindspot’ Series Finale Review: “Iunne Ennul”

We’re back, blindspotters! After recovering from the frenzied previous episodes, the show returns with the series finale and episode 100 “Iunne Ennul“. It was a bittersweet episode. It has emotion, winks towards history, nostalgia, action, feelings on the surface, it’s a love letter to fans … but everything flies through the air in a last minute that should never have existed  because it makes disappear what they had built with so much care and love. Let’s discuss everything!

For one last time … here we go!

Normally we start from the beginning and I promise we will go back there but now I want to confess what I thought after the end of the episode: what the fuck is this?  Really. What. The. Fuck. Is. This. I didn’t sign for something like that. For an ambiguous or, worse, lousy ending. Everything was good enough but with that last minute Blindspot has disappointed me and spoiled everything. A show can’t end like that. Sorry, but no. And we will explain why throughout this review.

Now, let’s start from the beginning. Jane wakes up in the hospital and manages to remember what happened, Patterson’s vaccine works and she remembers. But it doesn’t work as well as everyone hopes because Jane has hallucinations. She sees all the people from her past who have marked a before and after in her life and who have somehow helped her get to where she is and be the way she is.

Here begins one of the good and, at the same time, bad aspects of the episode.  Let’s go with the bad side first. You know I don’t like episodes / scenes that are based on hallucinations, they bore me. And that’s happened to me sometimes with Jane’s hallucinations, especially at first when it seemed like the whole episode was going to revolve around that or when they were too surreal.

However, it has been a pleasure to see ALL the actors who have been part of this history for 5 years. Off camera it has been a love letter to the fans, both from the production team thinking about that idea and from all the actors who arranged their agenda to participate and thus also say goodbye to the show. In fact, only Myfair has been missing and in an interview Martin Gero has clarified that it was impossible to balance the agenda and, even so, they paid tribute to her with that toast of Rich, Patterson and Tasha. They tried hard and filled us with nostalgia and love for the show. And that’s to thank. So, from here, THANK YOU.

On camera, these characters have marked the story of Jane and, with her, the show.  Some have been more important than others but all have put a grain of sand for the story to continue. However, we have to mention special moments of those hallucinations.

Roman’s appearance, for example, is on my top. We missed you Luke Mitchell! We love Roman! Listen to him again, with that cadence of voice and teaming up with Jane as always when they were little, as it should have been. It’s… heartbreaking and beautiful. And we were able to dream of a happy ending for him and Blake, what would have happened if things had been different.

Roman’s character in this story was always the one who was too damaged to get ahead, to live. This wedding is the end he would have had if things had been different. If this character had been less damaged. It’s just that sometimes … sometimes damaged people don’t get that second chance. Sometimes it’s too much and in the end they just … gone. That’s what happened with Roman and I’m glad that this episode has given us the opportunity to experience what happen if…a happy ending.

That moment brings us to the rest of the weddings Jane saw. It’s been a nice nod to the fans showing Tasha and Patterson getting married. Fandom has its own ideas about these two and the friendship that unites them and that little moment has been a clear nod to that, again, a love letter to fans. Also, we see the wedding between Tasha and Reade. What should have been … but it wasn’t.

Although it was so, in a hallucination, in something that wasn’t real, I like to saw that moment. I like to saw them for the last time together and happy. This couple deserved more than they had. They deserved everything.

And with this, we come to the last wedding, Patterson and David. The boy who left the history too soon, the one she always loved and never got over. The one who started it all. They deserved this too. Also, have you seen who officiates their wedding? Is Martin Gero, executive producer of the show. Nice cameo from the creator of all this madness that we love.

Apart from these moments, the episode had beautiful and perfect details.  For example, that battle in church is so cool! WOW! Simply WOW! Just like Borden has vanished as ZIP disappeared from Jane’s system. I loved the montage. They had never done it before but it was very successful.

Another beautiful detail is the moment when Kurt introduces himself to Jane the way he introduced himself the first time he saw her, when they met so many years ago. A lifetime ago. It has been a perfect detail for nostalgia and gives us a brilliant circle closing feeling. I have to confess, I couldn’t help but smile and melt at the scene.

Hallucinations have also been an opportunity to closely analyze Jane’s psyche.  Inside her, she always had a thorn stuck in her, a poisonous thorn that kept shouting at her that everyone who approached her died or was irreparably wounded. In short, she only left destruction in her wake. That, of course, isn’t true. But fears and demons don’t understand reality. They feed on our darkest thoughts.

What I love is that Jane confesses everything to Kurt. She doesn’t keep it for her but, in the end, she entrusts him with her worst fears, her darkest thoughts. It’s Kurt who helps her and makes her see that this world is better because she is in it, she has done much more good than harm. She helped catch horrible accimimals and saved many lives. I love this couple!

That feeling has been multiplied by a thousand in one of the last scenes of both.  Kurt not only supports her but also takes into account how she feels and when everything ends he wants her to know that it’s over. No more feeling that someone has directed her life in any way. It’s time for them to create new memories, together, and for her to feel that she is in control of her own life, that she can go where she wants.

And that last scene of both deactivating the bomb. That takes us back to the other times in the show. And if this is the last time they see each other, the last time they can remember, if that’s the end … they want to go feeling each other, feeling the lips of the loved one brush against their own, just feeling and loving each other as they have from the beginning. #Jeller for the win!

Plus, we can also see Jane make peace with her past. The hallucinations have led her to question what the difference is between what she did for Sherperd and what she does now. In the end, she comes to the conclusion that everyone, at some point, had good intentions.

It’s undeniable that the FBI needed a change, needed less corruption, but the difference is that they were lost. In the end, for them, the end justified the means and the lives were worth nothing more than what they could contribute to the mission. Jane’s different. For her, each life counts, has importance and the end doesn’t justify the means. She may sacrifice herself, but never those she loves or innocent people.

Jane needed this. Close this chapter. We cannot ignore our past, it always comes back. We have to make peace with it so we can turn the page, learning from our mistakes. This is what Jane does here and it was a catharsis that the character needed.

Another wonderfully perfect scene is the parting between Rich, Patterson, and Tasha. That’s it. It was time to leave the FBI and start again. They may be together but … it will not be the same. And they are like … an indivisible pack. The entire team is a family but within it, Kurt and Jane are a couple, which means that they’re their own microcosm within the great family that they are all and the same happens with Tasha, Rich and Patterson. They have a connection and a special relationship so it feels right that the three of them have this scene alone.

And the words that are dedicated … God, have made me cry. All three … would not have come out alive if it weren’t for the help they’ve given each other, physically and emotionally. They saved each other’s lives in a literal and metaphorical way. They have been there when the other has needed it. No questions asked, just by his/her side, supporting, comforting, just offering a shoulder to cry on and a fighting partner.

The three love each other because they’re family. The family they choose and therefore they toast, for the family and, in it, they also include those who aren’y there like Reade or Mayfair. They toast with them and the words that have been said … are also dedicated to them. None would have survived without the family they are.

This scene is so emotional, it has so much feeling … I think this was all the actors.  They were feeling what they were saying, the tears are real. They’re a family both on and off camera. And having such a team, which is part of you … is incredible.

Which leads us directly to the family dinner that we see in the last minutes of the episode. They’re all there. Bethany, Allie, Rich, Patterson, Tasha … even Avery, Jane’s missing daughter (welcome back Avery! It would have been great if they could give us an explanation of why you disappeared and now you reappear as if nothing had happened). Plus, there’s Boston too! He and Rich had their happy ending. Can you hear wedding bells around here?

And Tasha’s precious baby! Just look at the cuteness in person! And Jeller contemplate them all. To their family. They look at each other with the happiness written in their eyes. Happiness for everything they have achieved and for what they have left to live. They hold hands and just … look at them. They’re so lucky to have them all together, that they’re their family. It has been a long and hard journey of five years, with good and bad moments, even horrible ones, but absolutely everything has been worth it because it has taken them there and if it doesn’t come to be because a person somewhere came up with a plan absolutely crazy and decided to start it, they wouldn’t be there, they wouldn’t have met, they wouldn’t have been really happy.

If we think about it, it’s a perfect metaphor for what happened to the show. If it wasn’t because someone had this crazy idea and decided to fight to see it become a series, we would not have lived five wonderful years with this show. We would never have met Jane, Reade, Patterson, Tasha, Kurt and Rich, all the characters who have accompanied them and all the beautiful stories they have given us. We would not have suffered, cried, smiled, get emotional or screamed with happiness with them.  We would not have grown up with them. We would not have met wonderful people in the fandom. THANKS to all who have made it possible for us to experience all of this.  It has been a roller coaster but god, it was worth it. That would have been the perfect closure… but no. There’s one more scene that clouds the whole episode, the whole story. But before…

The last detail that we must name is that everything ends as it began: in Time Square, closing the circle. It’s quite poetic and I like the meaning of it, in fact, I love it.  But not exactly the end, not exactly the last scene, not that. And that, finally, leads us to name the negative aspects of the end. That minute that spoiled everything.

They let us know that Jane’s cure is not on time and that she passes out in the middle of Times Square and dies amid Kurt’s heartbreaking and desperate screams.  So, where it all started, Jane is back in a bag … but this time she is not going to get out of it. It’s just how the show started but they didn’t need this. They had been in a closed circle since the previous episode and also from the moment Jane and Kurt deactivated the bomb in the middle of Times Square. But no. They made this thing, what for? I imagine that to “surprise“.

That’s very fashionable lately, we had the example last year at Game of Thrones.  The producers want to “surprise” with the ending and develop the plot in a way that is meaningless and inconsistent with what we have seen previously in order to “surprise” the audience. But, new flash! We aren’t surprised by anything and just piss us off. We’re mad! We don’t want any more surprises. We want a damn series finale that makes sense.

In the case of Blindspot they decided on this unnecessary final turn and, as if that weren’t enough, it’s an open end since they leave us with the intrigue of whether Jane is always dead or, on the contrary, is alive and is only remembering. As we said at the beginning of the review, this is not the way to end of a series. Guess what, producers: the audience LIKES HAPPY ENDINGS. It makes no sense that Jane was suddenly dead.

I mean, I understand Jane’s decision. Saving everyone, protecting them all, sacrificing for everyone, even losing her own life is just what she would do. But the way they make it all end is what’s so bad. I mean they had so many options.

For example, they could have opted, as a reader told me in the previous review, because ZIP administered to Jane was denatured (which, by the way, of that ZIP they managed to denature we don’t know anything, forgot in the immensity of the  plot) or, something simpler, just having left it that way, not having put in shoehorn that horrible last minute. The cure came on time, it’s over. But no.

This counting on Jane being dead (which is an unfair and absolutely stupid and horrible ending to this story) but we don’t know. That is, the decision of what to believe is left to the viewer’s discretion. The ending is completely open and that’s just as stupid and horrible. When a show ends, a story ends and the viewer mustfeel that story has an end. A true ending. We must feel that there’s a conclusion to the story.  It’s completely closed and we can turn the page with a smile. We need a self-ending.

What they done here would have been understandable if this was a normal season and the show had been the victim of the cancellations that the networks carry out every year. In that case, they could not have done anything. But when they renew the series for a FINAL season you expect the ending to feel like one. It’s as if they are halfway there.

I think this final spin would have been perfect for a season finale. For a finale waiting for a new season. In fact, it would have been Blindspot’s style, curling the curl (we can agree that they aren’t very good with the end-of-season twists) but it would have been a different, surprising and more dynamic end of season than the previous ones. The problem is, it’s not a season finale, it’s the series finale and it doesn’t feel like one. At no point. It feels like they should have put a “continue” at the end. But this doesn’t continue. It ends here. With an open ending that doesn’t make any sense no matter how hard you try to find it.

They wanted to “innovate” and “surprise” and, in my opinion, the only thing they did was to end up with a perfect ending and spoil everything at the last minute. Precisely that last minute is like a guide to everything NOT to do when a series ends. Really, what a disappointment.

In addition to what we commented, the end leaves other fringes that should have been resolved or that, directly, don’t make sense. I mean, haven’t you felt that everything that leads to the end is quite forced? For example, Kurt would not have left Jane alone in the hospital. We talk about Kurt overprotective Weller, there’s no chance he left Jane alone in such a situation. Kurt’s attitude is forced so that Jane can be alone and decide not to administer the treatment … but it’s an attitude that doesn’t match Kurt’s personality.

Then we have Ivy’s lack of motivation. As for Madeline, in the end, we found out why she was doing what she was doing (another thing that hasn’t been discussed at all and we can only guess at her story) but why is Ivy doing it? She’s a mercenary, she acts for money. I don’t understand why she’s hell-bent on finishing what Madeline started. And they don’t explain it either.

Speaking of Madeline, what is her story? Why did she says what she says about the FBI? If they were going to bet on this villain for two full seasons, they must develop her origin story. Honestly, they should have left Madeline alive before doing all of this.

And then we have the FBI, which is its own enemy. The team saves the world not once but twice (first unmasking Madeline and then catching Ivy and avoiding her plan) and the FBI fires them with a bad excuse about regeneration or I don’t know what. Thank you very much for your service but go to hell. Yes, it makes all the sense in the world.

No, it doesn’t really make any sense and even less to fill their posts with a mirror team of them, who prepare to start new adventures and become a family, like a reboot of history itself (although that has been a good wink)  .

So all things considered, “what the fuck is this?” reaction it’s the most suitable.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, well, I would have liked to do another type of review and not finish this cycle in such a bittersweet way. I would have liked everything to be different, I came prepared so that it was and I feel a little pity that it wasn’t. But all this is what I felt about the episode and I had to write it, like every week.

In general, the episode is good, full of feelings, nostalgia, emotion, winks towards the past and history, like a love letter. Close some plots and the circle itself that was opened in the pilot episode. It all ends where it started. However, the ending, that final last minute spoils everything and muddies all the work, care and love that had been noticed in the rest of the episode.

Everything ends with an appropriate ending for a season finale but not for a series finale since it’s open and somewhat chaotic, in which some basic plots aren’t developed or explained, the characters act out of character to accommodate that minute end and we don’t even know something as basic as if the protagonist lives or dies.

By the way, in my world Jane’s alive and happy with Kurt and their whole family and that family dinner is the daily routine for Jeller but, for your mental health, I recommend that you stop the episode at minute 41 and NEVER look beyond that. The final episode is 41 minutes long. That’s all. This is where the episode ends and it’s the most perfect ending we could dream of. Has anyone said fanfics? I need to read all the ones about the show ASAP.

PS: For my part, I wanted to thank you for joining me in my madness every week during these years. It has been a pleasure to share with you everything that this show makes us feel, good and bad. You don’t know what each reading, each comment and being able to be part of this wonderful fandom means. It has been a wonderful few years and an incredible experience. The best thing that this show leaves us, its legacy is that it has managed to unite people from different parts of the world who just wanted to share their love for this show. And that’s all friends! Until another series! I LOVE YOU!

  1. Disagree 100%! That the episode can have such a tremendous emotional impact on us in the final MINUTE is a testament to how good it really is. You can have your fairy tale ending… it might be true! For me, that it possibly was not true is exactly what fueled the impact and made it SUCH the perfect ending.

    1. Author

      The division of opinions is awesome, so we can debate 🙂 For me, we deserved better than an open ending, they have had time to close all the open plots. I think the impact of the show is seen over the years and a series finale wasn’t the right time to do something like that. But I’m glad you liked it. Thank you for your comment! 🥰😘

      1. Maybe I was prepared by “Lost.” 🙂 In that case, though, I did not like the ending when I watched (but don’t remember so clearly now so I just have love for the series). Here, my emotions went from joy to despair in an instant–but at the very end, what remained was hope. I simply am not convinced that she’s gone. It will always be “happily ever after” for me (at least until a sequel?? Lol).

      2. Author

        I heard awesome things from that show! I have never seen it but I know about the ending and it was a similar shock…the good thing is that over time you can see the series again and remember it with a smile, without caring about the ending 😉

        I understand you, everything was joy and happiness and, suddenly, everything exploded and vanished. That’s true, in the end, we have hope. For me it will also be a happy ending.

        Hahahaha I like the idea of ​​the sequel! Thank you very much for your comment! 🤩😘😘

  2. What comes to my mind is that MG wanted to give birth and death to his creature, to affirm that it was he who decides fate (I’m really mad at him, and it’s not the first time, when he wanted to run another show together with Blindspot we noticed that there was a drop in the quality of the show). For this he spent the 5th season deconstructing the man characters, Kurt changed his blind spot to Bethany, and became extremely careless with Jane, as you yourself pointed out (this is not the Kurt of the last four seasons) and Jane started to have feelings of guilt all the time, leading her to take self-destructive actions that led her to SUICIDE. This is it? Did a character who showed us how she suddenly recreated had a regression to this level? This was a total deconstruction of a character that led us to watch this show for its fierce ability to cling to life and to reinvent herself . Jane managed to tame Remi and the next step would be for Jane to retake Alice. What happened if … the show was over after 41 minutes, like you said. If MG wanted to put an end to the character, to give it a heroic and not self-destructive end. Everything in the TS scenes sounded fake. The FBI would have gone with an army for TS and together with a medical team with the antidote together. The final scene was painfully poetic, but false. I know that our brain chooses the best as a form of self protection, and that most of us will rationalize that the last scene was only in Jane Weller’s head in the dining room. But when I see that black bag closing and covering Jane’s face, all I feel is that MG put us, the fandom, together with Jane in that black bag. The Brazilian fandom felt this ending as a betrayal of the international fandom, which was always very loud when asking for renewal. If MG had killed Kurt, the rebellion would have been huge, but when killing Jane, even in thought and the character’s deconstruction in this last season, it was a slap in the face of those who always supported him. I repeat, the last scene may have been poetic for the author, but it was abject for most viewers who learned to love the phoenix Alice Kruger.

      I can only say: PREACH! I totally agree with you. In fact, I really like your reflection on why Martin Gero did this. Like you, I also think he did it to demonstrate that he chooses the fate of the character and the story. I’m also angry with him, I didn’t expect all this. It was a shock and not in a good way.

      Yeah! When he decided to combine Blindspot with another show, there was a noticeable drop in quality in Blindspot, that season was to be forgotten.

      I’m also with you in that he deconstructed the characters. Kurt had always cared about Bethany, she’s his daughter and he loves her but this season it was as if only she mattered and Jane took a back seat, so much so that, for example, in this episode he leaves Jane alone in the hospital. Kurt isn’t like that, he hasn’t been in four seasons.

      As for Jane, the guilt really doesn’t feel real, not now. That would have made sense in the first seasons but not now, after all the character has been through, after all the obstacles she has managed to overcome. As you mention, Jane won us over with her ability to adapt, reinvent herself, and be true to herself. Despite all the horrible things she experienced in the past, she never gave up and always struggled to stay alive.

      I wish Martin Gero had given Jane and the story the heroic ending they deserve. Those 41 minutes were magnificent. But lately happy endings aren’t in fashion. They want to surprise us and they don’t want to understand that we don’t need more surprises, we don’t want more surprises.

      You’re right! Those scenes sound false. If there is an antidote, the logical thing is that the FBI was prepared with it to the mission.

      True, it was poetic … but false. They have only managed to spoil this story for us. And you’re right, Jane is not the only one in the black bag, the fandom too. I had no idea what you are telling me about Brazilian fandom! But they’re absolutely right. This was treason. The show was canceled and the fandom struggled to bring it back. Campaigns were carried out on social media, the network was mentioned, the strength of the fans was shown and how much we wanted an opportunity to say goodbye to the series and this ending is a clear slap in the face to all that fight. To that unconditional support.

      I agree with you that Kurt’s death would have meant a huge rebellion but Jane is even worse. Maybe this ending was poetic for him or ideal but I think it only responds to the fashion of seeing who surprise most…when all they do is screw up a story that has touched so many fans and also leave a bad taste to all who have supported the project.

      Anyway, thank goodness fanfics exist. Thank you so much for your comment! 😘😘😍

    2. > But when I see that black bag closing and covering Jane’s face, all I feel is that MG put us, the fandom, together with Jane in that black bag.

      SPEAK FOR YOURSELF. 🙂

      The one thing I will say to both of your suggestions that MG wanted to decide the fate for himself is that he did appear as a cameo in this episode so he does have an element of egotism with him (but don’t we all?).

      Still, I have to think it’s more a reflection of the viewer because I personally was left with hope and happiness in the final moment. Perhaps the body bag is what could have been–as I believe Kurt said–if things had been a bit different.

      1. Author

        Sorry I meddled! We all have strong opinions about this ending and its symbolism, in addition to what it meant for each one, perhaps that was one of Martin Gero’s objectives and he achieved it 🙂 For my part, I adore the debate that is generated.

        I read in an interview on TVLine that the fact that he appeared officiating at Patterson and David’s wedding was because Joe Nicol (the actor who plays David) officiated his and was kind of returning the favor. But personally, I do agree with Cissa that Martin Gero wanted to make it clear that he decided the future and the end of this whole story. I’m glad you enjoyed it!😘😘

  3. Couple interesting comments by “Anonymous” on https://bit.ly/3f6xxDq pointing out evidence that Jane did not die in the end. Just sayin’! 🙂

      Thank you! I just read them and I hadn’t thought about that. Anonymous is right! 🤩🤩🤩😍

  4. First of all: very nice covering of the episode.
    Then I would like to stress out really really hard that the producer’s strategy of ending the series is, unfortunately, in perfect tune with the times we are living right now these days. The producers ditched all traces of responsibility when opting for, as they called it, an opened ending. The very essence of this opened ending creates a very strong, maleficent, polarisation of the people who have watched the show. As you can see in this discussion board as well, things are starting to look more and more like on the streets of some of our US cities across the country: people blinded by hatred and fighting for something that, until yesterday at least, meant nothing to them. And in case of a tv series it’s even worse, as we are talking about a story, about fiction. Yes, the stories are nice, are a part of our lives and they comfort us many times. But still… there is a boundary between real life and the story, no matter how many real-life inserts it would have.

    All this, dear ones, is just a classic method of dividing people and turn them against each other. It is straight up maleficent. Why did the “great” producer of this show choose this? To please everybody? That is absolutely aberrant!
    By choosing this, they insert in people’s minds the insidious idea that GOOD does not always win. That, sometimes, EVIL might as well win. I hope more people will have the clarity of how destructive this idea is, and subtile as well! If it were possible for EVIL to win sometimes too, that would totally deny the existence of an infinite, all-mighty and GOOD Supreme Consciousness. It inserts the idea that EVIL is equal in power to the great GOOD and might win sometimes, just like a “surprise”. This would be the very definition of a chaotic construction of reality.

    But with all the twisted propaganda more and more violently pushed in literally all the tv shows, I am not at all surprised by this evil and abject inspiration materialised by the Blindspot’s “great” producer and writers and cooking up such a grotesque last minute for the entire series. I am truly sorry for all the hard work of the wonderful actors and other staff members. The writers and especially the producer literally pissed themselves on their entire struggle. They took a huge dump on everyone’s work and defied every single fan who watched this show. And I am convinced that the vast majority of the cast did not enjoy this at all, but they had nothing to say as they were bound by contracts. So the creator Martin Gero (ironically and sadly) proudly exposed to the entire world to see his luciferian (or even satanic) vision of what a tv series should convey: duality, confusion, lack of responsibility, opposite of hope, sick sensationalism, the idea of a corrupt universe where EVIL could win at any moment, and therefore people should always live with this terror in mind, and forget the eternal power of GOOD that is immortal in their souls.
    So in conclusion, if this is the expression of your mind, Martin Gero, I can honestly and undoubtedly tell you that you are human piece of scum and all the terrible karma that you are building right now will be served to you later on (in this life or the next ones) in a well deserved manner.
    And for all the sane people who still exist out there, just hold strong, because GOOD always wins! With no exceptions!

      Thank you very much! I’m glad you liked it 🤩 I agree that the open ending creates a debate in fandom and that maybe was one of the goals. However, although it’s not the ending that I would have liked, I don’t think that the debate in the fandom, as long as it’s with respect (as it happens in this post) is bad, on the contrary, I think it’s very good to exchange ideas and see the things from another point of view. And I love to debate, it’s much more fun!

      Of course, disrespect is not acceptable in any respect, luckily this fandom is really respectful.

      As for the polarization in the streets of the United States, I have to confess that I’m Spanish but I know something about it and I believe that the fight for life and rights is never illegitimate, on the contrary, without a fight nothing is achieved. #BlackLivesMatter

      I’m with you that the final message is not exactly good. That is, Jane fought all her life to achieve and earn her happiness but, if we stay with the ending where she dies, she didn’t succeed. However, if there is one good thing about this ending, is it doesn’t specify if Jane is alive or dead and fans can “choose” her ending, that is, you can choose to believe that she’s alive and that she got everything she deserved (that is my case) and, therefore, that good wins.

      I don’t think Martin Gero really had the intention of making the evil win, but he wanted to do something that is very fashionable: trying to surprise the audience by avoiding the plot. That is to say, I think that his decision was more pragmatic (when trying to leave a “mark” that I think he thought he would not leave if he made a simple happy ending) than philosophical (the duality of the fight between evil and good that you propose). But that’s just my opinion 😊

      Of course, I would have liked the show to end differently, maybe the actors too, we will have to be attentive to the interviews they do because the press will surely ask them about this 😉

      As for the last part of your comment, I must condemn your expression on Martin Gero. As we mentioned before, something like this is not acceptable in any debate. Passionate opinions of course do, as do passionate debates, but despite our anger, we must not lose form.

      Thank you very much for your comment! 😙😙

  5. Hello, I don’t speak English so I use the tranlator.. I hope that what I mean is understandable.
    I have followed your reviews throughout the series. The latter was perfect. I feel like you. In fact the S5 for me was a long disappointment because I saw the sacrifice of Jane coming to each episode while building another Kurt more concerned with the distance of the daughter than with the wife who was suffering at his side. These two didn’t look like Jane and Kurt always so strong. I saw our alphas being wiped out by personal dilemmas.
    I even like episodes that feature these parallel versions like 3×14, but I found it an unfortunate choice for closing. They could have done something like that over the course of the season and given us a concrete ending, reaffirming that Jane’s journey was not in vain, that changing and rebuilding herself can lead you to be happy. That last minute threw me into hell.

      Hi! It’s perfectly understandable! English is not my first language either 😂😂 I’m Spanish, I mention it in case you speak Spanish and it’s more comfortable for you, we can speak Spanish 🙂

      Thank you very much for your words and for your support! You’re very sweet 😍😍 and I understand you, in this season 5 Jeller have been blurred. As you mention, Kurt cared a lot for Bethany but practically nothing for Jane. They should have balanced the character in that regard. And there wasn’t much point in Jane’s guilt after all she’s been through.

      I’m with you, I also think it wasn’t the right choice for the end. As you mention, they could have done it throughout the season…but not now. Not in that last minute and flying through the air the entire journey of Jane and her long-awaited happiness. Hahaha the same thing happened to me, that last minute is hell…so I decide to ignore it. Thanks for your comment! 😍😘😘

  6. Hi, Brazil is devastated with this end of the series, the fans of the series and Jane Doe and also Jeller, we are in mourning, Martin didn’t need to do this with us, we just wanted the usual cliché ending, we don’t want changes in anything and neither impact of the series, but it did not impact the series, he ended the five seasons in final seconds, he destroyed everything in seconds he dropped a nuclear bomb on everyone in the fans and a lot of disregard for everyone in the series and we learned to love from a singular way, how did you say what the fuck was that? he just needed to keep Jane alive and happy, that’s all, but no, he never wanted Jane to live or become a couple with Weller, if he didn’t want that, why did he make a couple? between us they were never really a couple because last season they looked more like friends than a couple, where was Kurt Weller that we knew a leader and last season he looked more like a failure, Martin was very disappointed this last season, to do this final shit he better not even have renewed the series. Still in shock with this ending, and he doesn’t even appear on social media with posts or questions because he knows if he appears he will break the internet with so many bad comments about the ending he made of the series, he would be massacred.

      Hi! I understand you, there is no point in this ending. As you mentioned, Martín didn’t need to do this, we wanted the happy ending and we deserved it. Fans like happy endings, I will never understand this new fashion of wanting to surprise and make a mark. We don’t want any more surprises, just an ending that makes sense. I agree, wanting to “surprise” he ended up destroying everything and disappointing and angering fans.

      The fandom was the one that fought when the show was on the brink of cancellation and we didn’t deserve this. That damn last minute should never have existed. Of course, for Jeller to have that ending…that’s the most horrible thing of all, that you no longer know if it was worth seeing or not, at least not at this time, with the ending so recent.

      I’m with you that Jeller lacked more balance, for example, Kurt focused only on his daughter and very little on Jane. The objective of renewing it for a final season was to close all the plots in a satisfactory way but Martin and we have different ideas about what “satisfactory ending” means.

      I think it will take Martin some time to get active on social media again…at least until this topic cools down. Thank you so much for your comment! 😘😘

  7. Hi there, I just finished watching the last episodes of blindspot and I have to agree a didn’t like the open ending where you decide what happened but… at the same time I like it. It’s hard to explain but as I read: The FBI doesn’t left a dead body in a bag in the middle of Times Square so… Jane is alive and happy with Kurt and all her family.
    But I’m writing for 2 things you asked: 1st. Madeline explained more about her motivations last season, around the final episodes of season 4 (can’t remember wich one), something about her father dying and blaming the FBI for it. So she really wanted to destroy the FBI.
    And 2nd: Ivy was a mercenary for Madeline, but also part of the Dabbur Zann, a terrorist organization. No much is explained about the Dabbur Zann but it seems their agenda is to cause destruction and hurt the USA (as many other terrorist organizations) and the ZIP bomb is a good way to do just that. I believe Ivy always had her own agenda and she only agreed to work for Madeline as a mean to achieve it.
    And about Jane’s daughter: No explanation at all. They only said she left to go to the university but was never mentioned again. Strange how Madeline didn’t try to catch her too as a medium to bring jane out of hidding (the way she did with Allie and Bethany for Kurt).
    Anyway, I think Blindspot was a really good show, one I enyojed watching. I really like your reviews, what other shows are you writing about? Maybe something I’m watching or will watch too.

      Hi! Hahahahaha I understand what you are saying, you don’t like to decide it yourself but, at the same time, it seems like a new and surprising way to end a show 🙂 I also think that Jane is alive…but I prefer to ignore that last minute 🤣🤣

      I didn’t remember about Madeline in season 4! Thank you very much! Sometimes memory fails, so I withdraw what was said about her, they have explained it well, although they could have somehow remembered those moments for which we have a memory as bad as mine hahahahaha

      I agree about Ivy, I hadn’t thought of it that way but being part of a terrorist organization would fit the plan to harm the United States, although I don’t know if, in that sense, she would have stayed with the plan of spraying ZIP to the entire population…but we can accept that xd

      I’m also with you that Ivy always had her own agenda or intentions to betray Madeline in the end to follow her own plan.

      We were left with no real explanation about Avery, she just disappeared with a very weak excuse…and as you mention, it’s weird that Madeline used Bethany and Allie to manipulate Kurt but she won’t use Avery. The whole thing with this character has felt like a huge void in the plot.

      Same here! I also think Blindspot was a very good show that we enjoyed for years. Thank you so much! I’m glad you liked them! 😍😍😍 Here, I write about Younger and soon I will write some articles about Blindspot and in Spanish I write about Outlander and soon I will write about Lucifer, although I plan that Lucifer’s reviews will also be available in English. I leave you the link to my twitter, there I’m reporting all the reviews I do (https://mobile.twitter.com/RaquelM1292) ❤️❤️❤️
