‘Blindspot’ Season 2 Finale — Preview of Jane and Weller’s Reunion | TVLine

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)

Robert Plant ‘Rainbow’

Watching Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters live @Austin City Limits in March 2016 and this song captured my attention. It’s from his 2014 album ‘lullaby and… THE CEASELESS ROAR

The live version in LA in 2016.

Pocket full of hearts
A world that’s filled with love
A love that carries all before
The passion and the flood
I lie beneath the rainbow
Now your tears have gone
And I will sing my song for you
And I will carry on…

 

 

Jerry Garcia guitar on auction to back rights group

Going to a good cause. No doubt, Jerry would have readily agreed to it.

Known as Wolf, Jerry Garcia’s guitar last sold in 2002 for nearly $800,000

 May 13, 2017
One of Grateful Dead legend Jerry Garcia’s most famous guitars is going back on auction, where it could fetch more than $1 million to back a civil rights group.

Known as Wolf, the electric guitar was custom-made by luthier Doug Irwin. Garcia debuted it at a 1973 concert in New York before the instrument — along with Hell’s Angels bikers — became ever-present during the Dead’s perpetual touring.

Dan Pritzker, a music-loving philanthropist who is an heir to the wealthy Chicago family known for the Hyatt hotel chain, bought Wolf for $789,500 from the auction house Guernsey’s in 2002.

Pritzker, who occasionally loaned the guitar to musicians, decided to put it back on auction, announcing that all proceeds would go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which wages legal battles against white supremacists and other hate groups.

“He called me three months ago to say he was concerned about the divisive things that are going on in the country and wanted to do something meaningful,” Guernsey’s president Arlan Ettinger said.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has voiced alarm at a spike in hate crimes, especially targeting immigrants and Muslims, since President Donald Trump launched his campaign in 2015.

“As extremism moves from the fringe to the mainstream, we have a lot of work to do,” the Alabama-based center’s president, Richard Cohen, said in a statement.

“This remarkable act of generosity only strengthens our resolve,” he added of the guitar sale.

Guernsey’s will sell Wolf at a May 31 concert at the Brooklyn Bowl music venue, to which the auction house is hoping to draw major artists. Online bids will also be accepted.

Ettinger said it was difficult to estimate Wolf’s sale price, but that it could near record territory.

Wolf was last sold alongside another guitar Irwin made for Garcia, Tiger, which fetched just under $1 million, a record at the time.

In 2015, the Gibson on which John Lennon played “Love Me Do” and other early Beatles songs sold for $2.4 million, another record for a historic guitar.

Formed near San Francisco, The Grateful Dead became one of the emblematic bands of the hippie era, drawing “Deadhead” fans who found a sense of community traveling from show to show to experience the ever-evolving jam rock.

Garcia, who died in 1995, bequeathed his famous guitars to Irwin, who had become destitute. After initial objections from the rest of the band, the luthier took control and put the instruments on auction.
