Blindspot puts Matthew Weitz on the hot seat in Existential Ennui. Here’s how to watch Blindspot season 5, episode 3 live, on TV and online.
The next Blindspot has another ally of the team in the crosshairs—so find out how to watch Blindspot online or on NBC this week, so you can find out if someone else is about to meet a tragic end.
Thursday’s episode is entitled “Existential Ennui,” and continues the show’s exploration of how Matthew Weitz (recurring guest star Aaron Abrams) is faring now that he’s become Director of the FBI. The first two episodes were all about whether Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) and her crew could trust Weitz, and then whether or not they could reach him to ask for his help after a pivotal death in the family.
Now he might need their help, because Madeline Burke (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) is still on her rampage. Burke’s iron-fisted need for security reaches a new height in this episode, where she is convinced there’s a traitor in the Bureau and is determined to find them at any cost. And the thing is, she’s not wrong. Will she expose Weitz and cost Jane another valuable ally?
Burke has been downright insufferable for a while now, despite Mastrantonio being an Academy Award and Tony Award nominee; it’d be fantastic if Blindspot allowed our heroes to take her down at least a notch early on. If viewers have to watch her pull strings all season and only get what she deserves in the series finale, it’s going to be a long wait.
Plus, Weitz deserves some good news after how put upon he’s been. Speaking of long, he’s come a long way from being the U.S. Attorney trying to strong-arm Tasha Zapata (Audrey Esparza). Let’s see if this episode cuts him a break, or could be the end of him.
Here’s how NBC officially describes the episode:
When an op goes bad, the team must deal with a proverbial monster in their house before it can take them down one by one. Meanwhile, Director Weitz is forced into a tense game of psychological chess as Madeline Burke attempts to assess his loyalty and root out a potential mole at the FBI.
