Serious question: Is Patterson the most jinxed work colleague ever? We ask because new sneak peek clips show Patterson reeling (once again) from the death of a colleague in this week’s Blindspot.
Last week, Patterson stopped by Stuart’s apartment to apologize for being so hard on him (we’re not sure why; he was mansplaining like it was going out of fashion), only to discover the door ajar and Stuart dead. What manner of tattoo shadiness was Stuart working on that cost him his life? And when will Patterson stop stumbling over the dead bodies of everyone she works with?
However, unlike David, and Dr. Boden, Stuart and Patterson’s relationship was a lot more formal, and so when, in the clip below, Zapata (Audrey Esparza) asks if she needs time off, Patterson is adamant about staying on the case.
We just pity whatever redshirt is forced to work with this unlucky technical wizard in the future. Oh wait. That would be Rich Dot Com (Ennis Esmer) who will find his lot thrown in with Patterson’s when they both work together this week to hide an explosive secret from their past.
Stay strong, Rich! You’re too young and funny to die now.
Meanwhile, as Jane (Jaimie Alexander) and Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) hunt down a collective of dangerous computer hackers, Roman (Luke Mitchell) takes it upon himself to call Jane to remind her he’s gunning for her. You know, just in case that’s something she’s likely to forget any time soon.
Blindspot’s “Upside Down Craft” airs Friday, November 10 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) on NBC.
