It’s new territory on BLINDSPOT, as Sandstorm proceeds with its mysterious plot and Jane Doe tries to enlist her brother to help the FBI stop them.
This second half of the season has seen a new relationship been Jane and her brother, Roman. At the end of the fall season Jane rescued Roman from Sandtorm and the dominance of their mother, Shepherd, at the last moment injecting him with the same serum that erased her memories. Then he was brought to the FBI special team’s headquarters, where Jane and the team have attempted to help him recover helpful bits of his memory. The Director of the FBI has wanted to turn Roman over to the CIA for interrogation to force out his memory as time ticks away on Shepherd’s plans to use the device to bring the country to its knees, but Jane, NSA Assistant Director Naz, and FBI Assistant Director Weller have forestalled it. New into the mix is a video discovered on Roman’s mobile phone of previously unseen tattoos Sandstorm were originally testing on Jane’s body, which last week led to the solving of a new mystery in identifying Sandstorm’s plans.
Jane has been wanting to bring Roman into the field with her in the hope that it will help unleash more of his memories, as it did with her. And she hopes it will encourage memories of Shepherd’s plans. The FBI has been reluctant to let Roman loose outside of its control, but last week Roman inadvertently helped the team decode one of the new tattoos and it becomes important again this week, leading the team to consider sending Roman into the field with Jane to help the FBI deal with a dangerous biker gang now in the city. Roman has been manipulative in the past and a danger to Jane — is Weller’s concern over sending the two out alone together warranted?
