Blindspot returns for a third season this fall, and the show is going to pick up exactly where the second season left off. It's kind of spoilery, so if you aren't caught up on the season, go away!
The second season ended with a two-year time jump from when they defeated Shepherd (Michelle Hurd) and Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) finds Jane (Jamie Alexander) at a retreat, surrounded by monks. He presents a box with a metal plaque that has a bird tattoo on it, and when it is touched to Jane's skin, a second layer of tattoos are revealed — a glowing layer. This made for a dramatic scene, but her whole body was covered in tattoos — if after two seasons you already need another set of tattoos, you may have a pacing problem.
And if that scene was confusing to you (and me), series creator Martin Gero told TVLine that the answers are coming early, before the first commercial break:
"So much will be explained. What's Jane doing in the middle of nowhere? Why haven't [she and Weller] seen each other in so long? Why did she run? All of that will be answered, and they'll immediately pick up to go find their friends."
And if you ship Jane and Weller (#Jeller), don't worry. It may seem to start off a bit shaky, but:
"The first episode back is going to be the most fulfilling 'Jeller' episode we've ever done. They are in love, there's a very good reason they haven't seen each other in a while and Weller's been searching for her."
And that may not be the only romance in the new season, as Gero said they "might" explore the idea of Agents Reade (Rob Brown) and Zapata (Audrey Esparza) going down that path, as well.
Blindspot Season 3 debuts October 27th on NBC.
