Last week’s Blindspot set up not only this week’s season finale but also some potentially huge changes for certain members of the team. We got to see a flashback to Jane and Roman as kids, when Shepherd pitted them against each other playing a game in order to determine who would do the chores (each loss meant another chore added to their list). Jane beat Roman every time until the last game, where she threw the game so he’d win. Shepherd knew what she’d done and punished Jane for it, making her do all the chores, telling her that Roman would never learn if she did that. Given what wonderful parenting Shepherd did when they were kids, it’s no wonder both Jane & Roman were effed up as adults!

The team worked together (using intel they gathered from Shepherd, who the CIA brought back for interrogation, and Lynette) to stop a bomb in the United Nations…only to figure out that the real targets were the leaders of two African countries who were coming together in a peace treaty of sorts against Crawford, who’d been trying to buy a pipeline from their countries. He wanted the pipeline rerouted to get to the land he’d purchased. So the team figured out the UN bombing was only a setup to get the African leaders out in the open so Roman could assassinate them. Jane & Weller got them out safely with only a few minor wounds, and they now have enough to arrest Crawford! Unfortunately, Zapata was caught on camera going back in and taking the phone one of the African leaders left in the building, and when she was confronted about it, she said Keaton (ie: the CIA) had told her to. Keaton once again showed his true colors and denied knowledge, and Zapata was then fired. That led to a close encounter with Reade in the locker room…including a kiss that sent Zapata scurrying away when it became too much for her…but then it turned into sexy timez at Reade’s apartment when Zapata showed up and said she just wanted to do what felt right.

The end was all about Roman and Jane: the tattoo database was suddenly working right again, meaning no more interference from Roman, and all that was left was a video Roman left Jane, saying he wanted to play One. More. Game. And that leads us into tonight’s season finale, where Jane (& the team, I’m assuming?) and Roman head home for the big showdown. Eek! (Oh, and the mysterious illness or whatever that Roman is suffering from is getting worse and worse, and Blake confronted Roman about his involvement with the bomb threat at the UN. Fun stuff!)

On tonight’s episode, “In Memory,” Jane and Weller hunt Roman back to where it all started…Can they stop him at last?

Catch the (final?) showdown between Jane and Roman tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

Last week’s Blindspot seemed to be a turning point in the new “relationship” Roman had with Jane and the FBI to take down Crawford. Jane, Weller, & Zapata were attending a gala hosted by Crawford and Blake. Avery left the van and sneaked in to confront Crawford. They were able to get her out of there without alerting Crawford as to who they really were, and Roman explained how he would turn off the security that would then allow their cameras to record the meeting Crawford was going to have with a big bad guy, which should allow them to get him. Unfortunately, after Blake gave him a heartfelt speech about love and family, Roman changed his mind and raced into the meeting to turn back on the security and tell Crawford the FBI was on its way. In the jet after Crawford, Blake, Roman, and Crawford’s attorney escaped the gala ahead of the FBI raid, Crawford gave his own heartfelt speech about family, etc. The attorney then brought up the question of how Roman knew. He sidestepped the issue, but Crawford seemed suspicious. He mentioned the task he’d set “Tom” on, killing the FBI team, and this time, Roman seemed to do what he was asked to do. He contacted someone (multiple someones, it seems) and now Jane, Weller, and the others are in immediate danger. Eek!

We’re coming up on the end of the season. Only five more episodes, including tonight’s. NBC has yet to renew it, so either they need to wrap the Crawford/Roman story line up in these five episodes or we’ll be left with a huge cliffhanger at the end of the season. I’ll be very unhappy if that happens and the show isn’t renewed!

On tonight’s episode, “Clamorous Night,” the team faces a deadly threat on all of their lives. Roman’s allegiances are tested.

See if everyone makes it out alive tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MacGyver, Hawaii Five-0, & MasterChef: Junior.

One of the biggest shockers of last week’s Blindspot had to be Blake’s kidnapping. Roman fought like hell to get to her but couldn’t get there quite quick enough, and she was spirited away in a van while taking a break in the middle of a high-stakes poker game to get close to a contact/old friend of her father’s. The other biggest shocker was that Reade’s girlfriend (now fiancée) Meg is in the country illegally. Eek! He’s known for a while, but last night, Zapata learned about it as well. And Reade took it upon himself to talk to a friend at the State Department, but with a new person in charge, he couldn’t help Reade.

Then there was the A story: a woman (Betty – not her real name…) working at the NSA stole sensitive information when the rest of the floor was celebrating someone’s birthday. She couldn’t just walk out with it, obviously, since they screen for stuff like that, so she took some pill that made her pass out and have to get carried out by paramedics, which meant she bypassed the normal security procedures with the drive of information she stole in the heel of her shoe. Then Nas showed up at Weller and Jane’s apartment with news that Crawford was indeed the initial funder of Sandstorm and then she told them about the theft from the NSA – a very, very bad computer virus the NSA made. After finding the middleman between the buyer and seller (a 16yo kid with a very bad attitude) and putting the pieces together, the team ended up at the black-hat hacker/dark web party Rich had been begging Reade to attend. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to get the buyer, but they did get “Betty” and Jane was able to get the virus so the bad guy got away but didn’t get the prize. Of course, Nas turned around and stole it from the FBI in the hopes to get back into the NSA, rather than just working with the CIA like she has been. Weller knew right away and wasn’t surprised or even that unhappy, it seemed like, so…more power to her, I guess.

Finally, Jane took some advice from Nas about Avery and invited Avery to meet her for coffee, rather than waiting and letting Avery come to her. Nas also called Weller and said she looked into Avery’s father (I’m assuming adopted father, but…) and found he had some shady dealings with none other than…Crawford. Eek!

On tonight’s episode, “Everlasting,” when Patterson’s investigation into a tattoo results in a horrible incident, she tries to figure out what went wrong…but quickly realizes all is not as it seems.

See what happens with Patterson tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MacGyver, MasterChef: Junior, Hawaii Five-0, & Blue Bloods.

The majority of Sandstorm, including leader Shepherd, went down in last season’s finale. Top people from the government gathered in the Secret Service bunker, thinking it was the good guys, but it turned out the guy running the whole show was working for Shepherd. Weller worked with another guy to take the guy down and get back to FBI headquarters. Thankfully, the team was able to stop Shepherd’s ultimate plan to destroy the entire Eastern seaboard, including the White House, which was going to be holding a full cabinet meeting. Jane and Weller arrested her and took over the ambulance that held the nuclear material. After fighting Roman and zapping the GPS thing that was leading more nuclear material toward the White House and allowing Patterson to take control of it…the US was safe, Sandstorm was taken down, but Jane allowed Roman to escape because she couldn’t bring herself to shoot him. The team celebrated 24 hours later, although several of them were questioning whether or not they wanted to stay with the FBI. Then Jane showed up, and she and Weller…well, I love yous were finally exchanged on both sides and they officially became a couple.

Of course, then in true Blindspot fashion, we flash forwarded two years (although the episode description for tonight says 18 months…so…). Jane was climbing up some cliff and then talking with a monk, who told her it was time to go home. Then at her temporary home (a tent), SURPRISE! It was Weller…who was wearing a RING that Jane seemed shocked and happy to see. It seemed like a happy reunion, but we got no explanation for why they were apart and why he was wearing a ring, because he then informed her that Zapata, Reade, and Patterson had all been kidnapped. He had a small metal thing that, when both of them put their fingers on it, lit up with the image of a bird that corresponded with the tattoo on Jane’s neck. When they put the metal up next to the tattoo, every tattoo on her body lit up like they were under a black light. Then the episode faded to black.

What the heck? What happened in that two years (or 18 months…) after they took down Shepherd? Who has Zapata, Reade, & Patterson? And why the heck are Jane’s tattoos GLOWING?! I can’t wait to find out starting with tonight’s premiere!

On tonight’s episode, “Back to the Grind,” eighteen months after parting ways under mysterious circumstances, the FBI team is brought back together by a new crisis.

See if we get any answers tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MacGyver & Blue Bloods.

The last new episode of Chicago PD was part of the #OneChicago crossover, where Olinsky’s daughter was one of the victims in the warehouse fire started by a guy who was angry at a girl who he felt ignored his attentions. He thought they had something special, but she didn’t really know him. He just friended her on social media. He was wackadoo, and lots of people were killed, including Olinsky’s daughter, who died from her injuries. It was a crazy intense night of episodes and really sad but a great crossover.

Chicago PD is my favorite of the #OneChicago shows, and I’m so glad it’s back tonight. As a Linstead (Lindsay/Halstead) shipper, I am a little nervous about the guest star who starts tonight for a small arc, but the producer’s said that she won’t be a romantic rival for Erin, so I’ll keep my hopes up that they don’t screw up my favorite couple! Also, we haven’t had a lot of time to focus on Adam being back yet, so it’ll be interesting to see how the story line with him and Burgess goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Remember the Devil,” after being tipped off about a woman running barefoot through the woods, Intelligence is led to a kidnapping victim locked up in a shipping container. The bizarre scenario leaves Voight questioning the legitimacy of the case and sends the team on a twisted trail to get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile, a former relationship of Halstead’s comes back into the picture, much to the surprise of Lindsay.

See how the team solves the case tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, Chopped Junior, Cooks vs. Cons, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Major Crimes, & Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.
