Blindspot: The Complete Second Season opens some three months after the end of Season One where Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton, Strike Back) has realized that Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander, Thor) is not his childhood friend, Taylor Shaw, and she might just be his enemy. Following her arrest by Weller, Jane was immediately taken by the CIA where she has been interrogated and tortured since that time. Needless to say, when she escapes, she'll be a bit bitter, but she gets back to the FBI and spills the whole story about Mayfair (Marianne-Jean Baptiste) and her death. The team still sees her as a traitor, but a new player has joined them, Nas Kamal (Archie Punjabi, The Good Wife), head of the super secret group Zero Division, out of the NSA. It seems Nas has been watching the Jane Doe situation from the start and has been following the organization that put Jane in the FBI's path for over six years. She calls them Sandstorm and aims to join forces with Weller's team to take them down, hopefully using Jane as an inside source. They formulate a cover story and send her back into Sandstorm, where she meets Shepherd (Michelle Hurd, The Glades), their fearless leader. She also meets her brother, Roman (Luke Mitchell, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and finally discovers the answers to her past that she's been seeking. Naturally, Shepherd wants her back at the FBI as their plant, and they basically use the same cover story, but Shepherd and Roman don't trust Jane. Poor thing, once again, no one trusts her.

She soon learns that the homegrown terrorist organization known as Sandstorm is well into preparations for their end game, Phase Two, and Jane is determined to find out details. Sandstorm is pretty smart, though, and they have a fail-safe mole inside the FBI that they can activate, if needed. It's no wonder they are always one step ahead of the team.

In addition to working to stop Sandstorm, the team has more than their own share of personal issues going on, aside from just seeing Nas as an interloper. Kurt gets a shocker when he discovers ex-lover Marshall Allie Knight (Trieste Kelly Dunn) is carrying his baby and he'll have some interesting decisions to make there. The Coach Jones case from last season comes back to haunt Edgar Reade (Rob Brown) and he'll have to face some potentially horrifying facts about his childhood when he asks an old friend to testify against Coach Jones. The fallout from the entire Coach Jones case will be massive and fairly devastating for Reade and also for Tasha Zapata (Audrey Esperza), as she is trying to be supportive of her best friend. Patterson (Ashley Johnson, The Last of Us) is trying to get back into the dating scene and tests the waters with Dr. Andrew Borden (Ukweli Roach), the FBI shrink, but is she really over the death of David?

As the team continues to crack tattoos on Jane's body and they stop more unspeakable events from happening, they begin to get a sense of the scope and gravity of Shepherd's plan, but Jane finds herself conflicted, not about Shepherd, but about Roman. Time and again he is there for her, but can he be turned to the side of good or is he lost forever? A split-second choice by Jane could change things forever, between her and Roman, and between the FBI and Sandstorm, or it could make all the difference in the world.

When the dust finally settles in the season finale, an entirely new mystery presents itself for next season, one which could hold nearly the entire team's fate in the balance. Here's to new beginnings.

Blindspot: The Complete Second Season takes a lot of twists and turns as the team races to stop Sandstorm. There are plenty of intense episodes, but fan-favorite Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) comes back for two more episodes. Yes! They need to continue this trend every season. You'll also see familiar faces in guest stars Zach Grenier (Entourage), Garret Dillahunt (The Last House on the Left), Dylan Baker (Spider-Man 2 and 3), Mary Stuart Masterson (Fried Green Tomatoes), John Wesley Shipp (The Flash) and Jewel Staite (Firefly, The Killing). There's also a hefty selection of special features, including featurettes from the writers' circle on the season in general; the season premiere; the secrets of the various families involved, whether they be Sandstorm, Weller's FBI team, or new relationships forming; and Zero Division. There's also an adorable featurette on (mainly) Ashley Johnson's Comic-Con experience, plus the 2016 Comic-Con Panel, which is always a joy to watch. There are also select deleted scenes, along with the gag reel, which is great.

Once again, Martin Gero and company bring a fast-paced and exciting season of mysteries to the forefront, with a path so twisty and turn-y that no one could predict the outcome. I can't wait to see what this means for Weller and his crew next season! One thing is for sure - if it is anything like the past two seasons, it will keep the audience guessing.

Warner Brothers provided me with a copy of this Blu-ray for review. The opinions I share are my own.
