Patterson and Rich Dotcom’s Connection: Why have Patterson and Rich Dotcom secretly been in contact in the two years the team was apart? “Patterson doesn’t want anyone to know about it, and they’ve put on a bit of a charade to further clarify that she hates Rich,” Gero hints, before addressing speculation that they could be hiding a romance: “They’re not romantic. Well, that’s for the audience to decide. What they’re referencing isn’t a romance, I’ll say that.”
Teases Johnson: “You do find out pretty early on in the season what the relationship is between Rich and Patterson. Relationship is a very broad term, because they have seen each other in the past two years, and you definitely find out why.”
The Dragonfly Tattoo: The significance of the dragonfly tattoo on Jane’s body that’s somehow connected to Zapata is “a huge story,” Gero says. The unfolding of the new mystery won’t take place for “at least two-thirds of the way into the season,” he reveals, but subtle clues will be doled out “as to what it’s pointing to” before then. “Remember that dragonfly tattoo, it’s going to come back up again and it’ll be explosive.”
Esparza further teased “the secret complicates all of the relationships in Tasha’s life and puts her in a position that’s challenging and difficult and complicated,” adding that the audience will be “blown away as to what it reveals.”
Roman's Mysterious Endgame: For now, Roman is satisfied with making life a living hell for Jane, Weller and their colleagues, but as Mitchell hints, Roman’s ultimate goal “will become clear as the season progresses.” “It’s not important immediately,” the Aussie actor says. “I’ve got to do some really cool things as Roman this season. It’s a very different Roman; it’s like Roman 3.0. It was a bit daunting coming back and trying to this new Roman on for size because it’s so different. Once I got the first episode under my belt, I was like, ‘Okay, I see where we’re going.’” That includes a new love interest who will come into the fray in the first batch of episodes -- and may change the game again.
