BLINDSPOT: Comic-Con Video Hints at Promising Season 2

blindspot

We are coming up on a new season of BLINDSPOT on NBC, and fans were treated to a tantalizing teaser video and star interviews at July’s San Diego Comic-Con, heating up excitement over the new story line to come. Are you ready?

All first season, we watched Jane Doe and Agent Weller and his FBI team puzzle out the intricate tattoos on her body. And little by little the code that was her body meshed into the vision of a conspiracy that we found out Jane Doe herself had plotted. Removed of her own memory, however, Jane Doe became a different person, and even when her own conspiracy was revealed to her, she wanted no part of it. She fought it. In the end, she killed her one contact within the conspiracy, her former lover, Oscar. On Weller’s side, it appeared that Jane Doe was his missing childhood friend Taylor Shaw, whom he missed so terribly that he wanted so desperately for Jane Doe to be, even deluding himself to believe despite mounting evidence that she wasn’t Taylor. In the final scenes of last spring’s season finale, he was confronted with the reality that Jane Doe actually wasn’t Taylor and he blew an emotional gasket. He arrested her. So what has happened to Jane Doe over our long summer?

As the official teaser video released at San Diego Comic-Con shows (see below), things haven’t gone terribly well for Jane Doe since we left her last season. “I’ve been in a hole for three months,” she says as a torture scene plays out. Season two begins brutally, and in other Comic-Con interviews, Jamie Alexander, who plays Jane Doe, reveals the questions left over from season one will be revealed and will lead us into a whole new season and in an exciting new direction, adding new cast members, the FBI team and Jane Doe digging deeper – into themselves and their relationships with each other – to find and take down the conspirators. Jane Doe desperately wants to make things right, but the team now has trust issues and quite frankly, it may be past making things right. Or is it?

Joining the cast in season 2 are Luke Mitchell as Roman and Michelle Hurd as another shadowy member of the stealthy organization that Jane Doe and Weller’s FBI Team must now hunt down. Also joining the cast is Archie Panjabi as the head of a secret division of the NSA that’s had its eye on Jane Doe from behind the scenes. Looks like the late CIA Assistant Director Carter wasn’t Jane Doe’s only interested third party.

Are we ready for a promising season ahead? BLINDSPOT returns to NBC for its second season on September 14 at 10/9c, before moving to its regular time period of Wednesdays at 8/7c the following week.

ONCE UPON A TIME Comic-Con Press Room: The Origin of the Savior, the Evil Queen and Hook’s Past

ouat1

The cast of ABC’s hit show ONCE UPON A TIME, along with showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis, talked to journalists this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con about what we can expect to see in season 6. With two villains in town, Storybrooke will now take front stage again, as the show returns to its roots for its sixth season. Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Emily de Ravin, Rebecca Mader, Colin O’Donoghue and Josh Dallas talked about what’s in store for their characters this season and how they are all going to have their hands full dealing with the Evil Queen and Hyde at the same time.

Adam Horowitz told us that this season will not be all about the Land of Untold Stories, as it was previously teased in the season 5 finale. This time, they are not going to a different land and stay there for the first half of the season, like they did for the past couple of seasons. “We are in Storybrooke and the characters from the Land of Untold Stories have arrived, and that is part of the story we’re telling. But the arc of this season will touch on a bunch of different things.” Horowitz teased.

According to the showrunners, these characters fled the Land of Untold Stories, so their stories wouldn’t play out. Now that they’re in Storybrooke, things will play out as they were supposed to and Emma will find herself again in the position of Savior, trying to help everyone find their happiness. Add to that the fact that both Hyde and a far more terrifying Evil Queen will be on the loose, so the heroes will most certainly not have time to take a break before the next crisis.

Origin of the savior. During the panel, we watched a sneak peek of the upcoming season, and found out that Alladin was a Savior. Eddie Kitsis mentioned that, this year, we are exploring the Savior mythology, and we will soon realize that Emma is not the first savior and that there is an origin story to that position of power. In the sneak peek, we saw that being a Savior has really taken its toll on Alladin and that it might be a glimpse of what is in store for Emma. “Last year, we saw Emma finally saying ‘I love you’ to Hook when there was no problem or death, so she was able to let in these new emotions. So one of the things we want to get into this year for Emma is what is it like to find your parents? What is it like to have the pressure of being the Savior and having to fight all those fights? Is she ever going to have a happy ending? I think the Alladin thing kind of showed you what happened to the Savior, right?” Kitsis teased.

Regina vs Evil Queen. Lana Parrilla said that the Evil Queen is different than what she used to be. “Before, she was still part of Regina, and Regina has a conscience. We will see how the Evil Queen will fare without a conscience and how far she is willing to go to get her revenge. She is still hung up on Snow and getting her heart.” Parrilla teased.

She also mentioned that Regina is still trying to be a hero and she turns to Snow for advice. “Part of her feels that [what is happening] is karmic, but she is not going to let the Evil Queen win. She is going to battle against her and really fight for redemption and her happiness.”

Jared Gilmore also talked about how Henry is going to react to having three mothers now. When he was asked about how he is going to feel about the Evil Queen, Gilmore said that it’s complicated. “It’s hard to explain. She raised him for ten years, so he has some sort of feelings toward her. Even when she was still in Regina, he wanted to see the good in her, which means he also wanted to see the good in the Evil Queen. But now that that’s gone, it will be really interesting to explore.”

Robin’s death. Last season, we saw Robin perish when Hades used the Olympian Crystal on him. Regina hasn’t really had time to process what happened and Parrilla says there is so much going on with the characters, that we won’t see it right away. “Regina is very private. There is so much going on. As soon as we start the season, we have Hyde and Gold has given him Storybrooke, so we need to protect our civilians. That’s why I think these moments are more private. It’s talked about, but I think  the grieving happens behind closed doors.” she elaborated on how her character is dealing with Robin’s death.

Zelena. When asked about how Zelena is fairing when season 6 starts, Rebecca Mader said that there is a lot going on with her character. When we last saw her, she had just killed her first love in order to save her sister, so she is not in the best head space right now. “I had finally gotten a sister, and now I have two. So it’s a lot – dealing with Regina and the Evil Queen, and the baby and I just killed my boyfriend, so I made an appointment with Jimini Cricket for next week.” The actress laughed.

About how her relationship with the Evil Queen and with her own dark side that she is still trying to leave behind, Mader said that being a villain is like battling an addiction, so Zelena might slip up a little bit on her journey.

Belle and Rumplestiltskin. Emilie De Ravin told us that Belle starts off season 6 still inside the box – just as we last saw her in the season 5 finale. However, she says that Belle will most likely not stay there for too long. “The way she gets out of the box, that she’s extracted from it, and the characters involved in that – it’s really cool.” De Ravin commented. “It reveals a lot about her relationship.” She added.

UnREAL Recap: Unloading Baggage

unreal

Quinn’s back in charge as things continue to spin out on this week’s UnREAL, with Darius missing, Rachel dealing with huge secrets, and Coleman figuring out Yael is more than an Everlasting contestant. The hour takes a turn and leaves questions about whose side a certain character is on and just a lot of questions in general.

Though they expected Darius to still be in the hospital, the moment Quinn starts up production again officially as showrunner, Chet tells Quinn that he’s gone missing. A start this is pretty much indicative of how fast the reality show is spiraling into some sketchy territory. Of course, Quinn being Quinn, she turns it around and with Madison’s idea, they make it so the final four girls duke it out in trivia to get immunity and then vote one of the girls off of the show.

But on UnREAL things, so rarely end up going as precisely planned and giving the power to vote a girl off leads to the productions favorites being threatened, namely Tiffany. But that’s where Jay and Chet come into play. While they all have their battling agendas, they all have a common denominator and it’s to make sure that however it plays out, it drives ratings (and possibly careers beyond the show). The production crew spends most of the hour trying to find Darius.

When Jay finds Darius, it’s with Ruby’s cooperation. After seeing Ruby and Darius talk, you can’t help but feel for Ruby and completely side with her argument for why she shouldn’t give Darius another chance after essentially publicly humiliating her on television. Jay tries to sell Darius the benefits of the show and after explaining the benefits of ultimately picking Tiffany, for not only him but his family as well, he decides to come back. And come back he does, in dramatic fashion, as he declares that his return is contingent on doing things his way, which includes making Tiffany stick around, despite the girls already trying to vote her off. Ultimately, Jameson went home. Another condition of Darius’ return? That Rachel stay as far away from him as possible.

Meanwhile, Rachel spends the hour going from drugged up haze to leaving with Coleman to confronting her mother and the doctor she brought. The fallout from Romeo’s shooting and Darius’ arrest (which unsurprisingly and kind of disappointingly didn’t really involve much of either for most of the hour) moved Rachel’s story into a place where she finally unloaded the truth about Mary’s death to Coleman–who we last saw essentially conspiring with undercover journalist Yael to get dirt on Everlasting and what’s really going–while he had a camera rolling on her the entire time. Though she felt better, that kind of information will inevitably cause so much trouble for Quinn and Company. How much longer before that happens?

Rachel didn’t stop there, though, as she unleashed one very big secret from her past. A secret that is so dark and twisted that it explains her horrific relationship with her mother and her horrific mother in general, who actually told her during the episode that if she were to tell anyone no one would love her. In the final act of the hour, she told Coleman that the reason her mother treats her is because she was raped by a patient of hers when she was 12 and that in order to protect her practice, her mother took her on as a patient. A terrible secret and though she seemed relieved to finally tell someone, Coleman may have been a terrible choice as we see in the final minutes that he’s still willing to see Everlasting burn to the ground.

“If we were going to have kids, we would have had them by now.” That line from Quinn to Booth brought up a question about exactly how long they’ve known each other, especially if they are talking about children already. It hasn’t felt like so long so it wouldn’t make sense for a woman like Quinn, who never seemed to show any interest in children, to start talking children now. Though, that string continued throughout for her and was technically even brought up during her confrontation with Rachel’s mother.

Now to figure out how long this lasts before the unloading of all this baggage blows the show (or its crew) up?
