Blindspot - A TV Show Review, Season 3, Episode 9 -- Jaimie Alexander Makes a Comeback -- Sort of


blindspot2The Blindspot TV show got serious quickly in this episode.  There are lots of dramatic events surrounding Jaimie Alexander's character, Jane Doe and information about her absentee daughter who was initiallly unknown to her.  But that’s not all.  Something even more dramatic happened with her daughter that unfortunately, seemed to have involved her husband.

There is a rift between Jane and her husband because of the situation above, which in my opinion is a good thing.  Since Jaimie Alexander's character is refusing to work as closely as before with her husband, she is showing a great deal of independence which suits her.

I especially liked the interchange she and her husband had during a stand-up meeting with the other staffers. Jaimie Alexander’s character was upset about what transpired and is unable to keep her emotions and job duties separate. I thought it was creative for the writer to have Jaimie Alexander have a heated argument with her husband that was relative to their work, but also related to the personal problem she was having with him.


Even though it was suggested she not get involved with the latest caper, she insisted doing so to keep her mind off what she just found out. I think it was a smart decision for Jaimie Alexander's character to stay on the job.  There are several storylines in this episode, each having a fair dose of suspense with a few humorous scenes thrown in -- not from Jaimie Alexander's character, but from the other actors which helped the show to be entertaining.

My problem with Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 9, is even though Jaimie Alexander is the action star, the writer and director are having her husband perform the exciting acts involving saving an area from danger.  That being said, since Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 9 had several stories being told simultaneously, the events involving Jamie Alexander’s character were the ones that kept my interest.  By the way, if you watch this episode, you will see a surprise ending that will have you on the edge of your seat.

I found this episode to have an adequate number of action scenes for Jaimie Alexander.  She was at the forefront of the plot, but since the greatest heroic actions were done by someone other than herself, I will not be rating this episode high; however my rating is higher than the one I provided for Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 8. As the action star of this TV show, Jaimie Alexander should stand out more instead of being viewed and treated as a sidekick.  Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars with 5 stars being the best, I rate Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 9, two and one-half (2 ½) stars.
