ET exclusively debuts a sneak peek from the return episode, where Jane (Jaime Alexander) has a chance to tell her brother, Roman (Luke Mitchell), the truth about his memory wipe -- that she was the one who injected him with the serum -- only she chooses not to.
“Everything is empty,” this new version of Roman pleads when Jane enquires about the whereabouts of Patterson (Ashley Johnson), using her own amnesiac experience to connect with him: “I was empty and these people [the FBI] helped me feel full again … You can trust me. I’m not going to lie to you.”
Except Jane tells Roman a white lie, saying that it was their mother, Shepherd (Michelle Hurd), who was responsible for taking away his memories. But because it’s Blindspot, it’ll only be a matter of time before Jane’s lie comes back to rear its ugly head.
Executive producer Martin Gero spoke to ET ahead of the show’s return, warning fans that the second half of the season is going to be a bumpy ride.
“Suffice it to say, Patterson is in a lot of trouble and the team needs to rally around to help her,” Gero said. “They have this new asset in Roman, but unfortunately that asset is incredibly volatile because his memory has been erased. It’s an exciting and emotional premiere, and sets up what we’re going to do for the rest of the season really, really well.”
Blindspot returns Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
