Before its official return on NBC, Season 5 is already at work with a “table red” from Blindspot starring Jaimie Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton. After the shocking events of Season 4, will Jane Doe (Alexander) and Kurt Weller (Stapleton) find a way to clear their names?
As we previously mentioned, Jane Doe (Alexander) found herself mysteriously covered with bioluminescent tattoos. Jane’s only clues are covered all her tattooed body. With the help of her husband, Kurt Weller (Stapleton), and the FBI’s Critical Incident Response Group, Jane has to figure what these mysterious tattoos mean before a major disaster occurs.
[SPOILERS AHEAD!!] Here are 5 reasons we’re excited for Blindspot Season 5:
5) The Table Read!?!
Creator/showrunner Martin Gero released a behind-the-scenes snapshot, writing the caption, “The last first table read.”
4) Episode 501!
From what we can tell, the upcoming fifth season premiere is titled, “TBD.” The first episode of the fifth episode will be written by producing scribe, Chris Pozzebon. After directing the pilot, Mark Pellington will be back in the director’s chair.
3) That Cliffhanger!
When we last left Blindspot, during the fourth season finale, Jane (Alexander) witnessed their secret cabin exploding into a million pieces. Just before the explosion, Kurt (Stapleton) had patched things up with Reade (Rob Brown), Tasha (Audrey Esparza), and Patterson (Ashley Johnson). At this point, we’re not sure who’s in the casualty list from the drone attack.
Just as the others were framed for a crime they never committed, Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) refused to snitch against his friends. After being placed under arrest, Rich was sent to his prison cell. Maybe Esmer was there at the table read?
1) The Criminal Mastermind!
You know who was probably there at the table read? Madeline Burke (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) continues to reign supreme as her evil master plan continues. That’s right, they were defeated by a woman!
Season 5 of Blindspot will premiere on NBC for its final season.
