'Blindspot' Season 5 Episode 3 will not be airing tonight, here's what to expect when the show returns
Fans of the show will have to wait a bit longer to catch up with all the drama and action that is promised by the next episode
The final season of NBC's 'Blindspot' began on a heartbreaking note, as we had to bid goodbye to Edgar Reade (Rob Brown), who did not survive the drone strike planned by Madeline Burke (Mary Elizabeth). After framing them for the power grid incident, Madeline's sinister endeavors continue, and in the previous episode, her team managed to ambush Matthew Weitz (Aaron Abrams). She has tightened the security around FBI quarters and has installed trackers on all the phones to ensure that no information is leaked out.
In the next episode titled 'Existential Ennui', she decides to assess his loyalty. Meanwhile, the team faces an unwanted visitor in their hideout. Who could this be, and what role will they play in the future of the team, if at all? Sadly, we're going to have to wait a week to unravel the truth. Episode 3 of 'Blindspot' will not air on May 22, but on May 28, NBC at 9 pm. The synopsis for the episode reads, "When an operation goes badly, the team have to deal with a monster in their house before it can take them down one by one; Director Weitz is forced into a stressful game of psychological chess as Madeline Burke attempts to assess his loyalty."
In Episode 2, Madeline planned a bomb at a science conference. Luckily, Patterson (Ashley Johnson) and Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) got there in time and found that the bomb was right under the stage. They communicated to Weitz, who was on stage, and told him to keep talking. They managed to detonate the bomb in time, thanks to Rich Dotcom's help and much to Madeline's chagrin. The episode also featured Bill Nye, who reprised his real-life persona and played Patterson's father. Patterson was rather emotional that she couldn't spend more time with him as she was afraid of putting his life in danger as well. Meanwhile, Afrin and Brianna team up to help the fugitives, but Brianna gets caught by Madeline's mercenaries. And, that's when they ambush Weitz.
Will Weitz be swayed to Madeline's side? Tune into NBC next week, to find out!
