After narrowly escaping death at NBC just last week, Blindspot will be setting off fireworks in tonight’s sophomore finale — and we’re not just talking about the imminent disaster that is Phase Two.
Rather, the season ender (8/7c) will also be a major one for Jane and Weller, who finally began to rekindle their romance in last week’s episode, following 20 weeks of tension. And, according to star Jaimie Alexander, their honeymoon phase will only continue in the final installment.
“Without trying to sound inappropriate, it’s explosive,” Alexander told TVLine when asked about Jane and Weller’s forthcoming relationship. “We’ve reunited, and it’s a really special finale.”
But the pair’s romance will take a backseat to more pressing matters in the episode, as the FBI closes in on Sandstorm and attempts to thwart Phase Two — which, according to Alexander, is an “insane” event.
“When I found out what [Phase Two] was, and how Michelle Hurd’s character is facilitating this plan she has, it was crazy,” the actress hinted. “It has to do with nuclear weapons, but it’s something that could actually happen, which is terrifying.”
And yet, Alexander revealed, the finale’s most gasp-inducing moment won’t take place in the present day. Rather, viewers will become privy to a major flashback involving Jane — and, apparently, the scene involves some highly nerve-racking stunt work on Alexander’s part.
“There is a chunk of missing time that you see at the end of the finale that will make your jaw drop,” she teased. “I had no idea it was coming, and it is crazy. I said to [series creator] Martin [Gero] when I read the script, ‘You want me to what?’ And he said, ‘Don’t worry, we can use a drone, because the chopper will be too dangerous.’ I’ll just leave you with that.” (With reporting by Matt Mitovich)
