Blindspot: Comic-Con 2016 panel preview
Who is Jane Doe? That’s the big question heading into Blindspot‘s second season — and one we hope to get an answer to during the NBC drama’s panel at Comic-Con on Saturday, moderated by this reporter. To prepare for the big event, EW is here to give you a refresher on where Blindspot finished its freshman season:
Where we left off: In the wake of Mayfair’s (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) death, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) confronted Oscar (François Arnaud), who revealed that she is not Taylor Shaw. Working under the guidance of a mysterious man named Shepherd, Jane infiltrated the FBI’s New York Office in order to oust Mayfair and provide the less corrupt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) with enough wins so he’d replace her. Weller, meanwhile, discovered that the real Taylor Shaw was killed as a child by his father, so he arrested Jane.
What we know about season 2: At the top of season 2, we’ll learn much more about the mysterious group behind Jane’s tattoos, why Jane would join them, and we’ll also find out her real name! There will also be a three-month time jump during the premiere, which will feature flashbacks to Jane’s training that will prepare her for what she’ll be facing during those intervening months (Cryptic much?). The second season will explore themes of redemption and family as Jane has to win back the trust of the team, who will all be brought up to speed on the files Mayfair left behind and the truth about Jane not being Taylor. Good Wife alum Archie Panjabi joins the cast as the head of a secret division of the NSA that has been tracking that Jane Doe case.
