'Blindspot' Season 5 Episode 9: 'Wicked witch' Madeline Burke kills herself, annoyed fans call it a cop-out
You would think that Madeline Burke's (Mary Elizabeth) death would soothe the harrowed nerves of fans. Unfortunately, it didn't. For starters, Madeline played her last card as she killed herself because she didn't want to fall into the hands of the FBI fugitives. She knew that they would use her to trace the ZIP explosives, and hell she wasn't going to let that happen.
Madeline has added a lot to her resume, including erasing the memory of her own son, ordering drone strikes, torturing people, killing a woman just to prove a point that she has leverage over others. It wasn't the best ending, but nevertheless, she's out of the picture.
Fans aren't happy at all and had particularly bloodthirsty plans for her. "And I am still upset Madeline killed herself. I wanted Tasha to be the one to take her out #Blindspot," a fan wrote."Madeline’s a coward...and died a coward’s death. Here’s to being DONE with you. #Blindspot," another fan wrote. "Kinda feel robbed that Madeline killed herself before she faced the public music. Like watching her fall from grace would’ve been so much more rewarding :/ @NBC," a fan angrily tweeted. "Madeline got off easy," another tweeted. "Madeline is dead, wicked witch is dead," a fan wrote.
Meanwhile, other fans sadistically tweeted 'Rot in hell Madeline', 'Die Madeline' and 'You're a psychopath, Madeline'.
"Gee Madeline, that was sort of a cop out. I thought you would have gone down much better than that, but oh well. #blindspot S5E9," a fan tweeted.
Well, we don't always get what we want. The most painful part of this episode was watching Matthew Weitz (Aaron Abrams) dying. He came through for the team and then got shot in the ensuing gunfight. Seriously, people dropped dead like flies in these two episodes of 'Blindspot'. Patterson (Ashley Johnson) is alive and that's probably the only good thing that happened in tonight's (July 9) episode of 'Blindspot'. Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) might have just lost her memoryor worse died, too.
Kids, we've got two weeks to sit and speculate what's going to happen in the finale. Happy waiting.
'Blindspot' airs on NBC, Thursdays at 9 pm.
