'Blindspot' Season 5 Episode 8: Will Patterson return with Allie and Boston and save the team from Madeline?
Patterson is too smart to die just like that and we are sure that she will return with Boston and Allie to save the day
'Blindspot' has been delivering the punches, left right and center, this season. Season 5 premiered with Edgar Reade's (Rob Brown) death after the drone strike ordered by Madeline Burke (Mary Elizabeth). Madeline doesn't hesitate in killing or threatening anyone who gets in her way and the next one to face the rap was Brianna. She murdered Brianna in front of Matthew Weitz (Aaron Abrams) to let him know that he can never betray her. And then, she erased the memory of her own son, because she knew that he had found out the truth. She is an unstoppable force of evil and the team isn't even close to exposing her. Well, how can they? She managed to catch them too. We almost cheered when Tasha Zapata was strangling her, but unfortunately, Madeline's minions saved her.
Patterson and Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) were caught by Madeline's team too. While it seems as if Patterson (Ashley Johnson) is another casualty of the season, there's a chance that it might not be so. Rich and Patterson had been destroying the servers while there was still time and that the whole place was exploded to blow, with just one touch. When the triggers didn't work, they had to eradicate the servers manually and then they were found. The bomb detonated, while heartbroken Rich saw Patterson being trapped in the room, filled with fire.
Yet, there is a chance that she escaped. Remember her plan B was the escape tunnel? Perhaps we are being too hopeful, but Patterson is the smartest in the team of rogue FBI agents and there's a chance that she might have made her way out of the debris. Apart from this, Weller's ex-wife, Allie has been trying to help the team as well. They might have help from Boston Arliss Crab, an old partner of Rich. Allie, Boston and Keaton were working together to rescue the team, before Keaton was forced to betray them as Madeline had put his family's life in danger.
Plus,the synopsis for the next episode reads, "With the surviving members of the team captured and held in FBI custody, Madeline and Ivy are in the final stages of their plan, but a few unlikely allies come out from the woodwork trying to stop her before it's too late."
Here's hoping that Patterson is part of these allies.
'Blindspot' airs on NBC, Thursdays at 9 pm.
