A bow tie, spatula and a mini fridge are just apart of a hard days work for the Blindspot team.
Sophia (Sarita Choudhury) is in the car with Mayfair. Mayfair wants to know why she faked her own suicide. She was afraid of someone finding out what they did. Sophia tells her that someone found out about Daylight and needs her help. Whoever it is, they will come after them and anyone else apart of Daylight.
Zapata asks Patterson if she wants to play a game. No, it’s not Dungeons and Dragons. Patterson is in. Zapata gives her a list of numbers that also happen to be the scores from Hudson University’s football championships. Zapata was reading about Levi Hart (Charles Brice) who was a running back. He got kicked out because of drugs. The numbers are tattoos on Jane. Patterson can only Zapata one way.
Patterson calls the team in to tell them about their findings. She lets Zapata explain her theory. Hudson University scholarship fund has been investigated before for fraud, but they never found anything. Maybe someone was paid off. Reade knows the defensive coordinator of the team and gives him a call. The team goes to see Coach Jones (Brian O’Neill). They ask him if he has noticed anything suspicious with the scholarship fund. The president of the University, Karen Morris (Sonnie Brown), stops the conversation and tells them to send any questions to her office. The team starts walking around campus and they hear gun shots. They see a student running saying that there is an active shooter on campus. Their earpieces aren’t working.
4 hours earlier. Zapata is at a Gamblers Anonymous meeting. The meeting leader (Shawn Parsons) asks if she wants to share anything about her addiction. She doesn’t.Sharing is “customary not mandatory”. The meeting leader tells her goodbye after the meeting because he doesn’t think she will show up again. Will she?
The team enters the school and decide to split up. Jane and Weller head upstairs while Zapata and Reade cover the main floor. Reade and Zapata split up. Zapata is in the hall and the shooter Tim (Joseph Goss) is shooting at her in the cafeteria. Coach Jones is hit. It looks like she hit the shooter, and when she checks he isn’t there. She checks on Coach and he was shot in the leg. They need to find an exit. He tells her that there is an exit in an auditorium. Coach says that the shooter came straight for him. They are almost at the exit when they hear the shooter. They are hiding. The shooter is about to leave when Coach Jones makes a sound. Zapata is out of ammo.
5 hours earlier. Joscar are together. He brings Jane tea even though it’s not her favorite. He give Oolong tea. She actually likes it. He tells her that he doesn’t think he should continue to be her handler. He says his decision is just based on doing the right thing for the mission.
We are back to when Jane and Weller decided to go upstairs. Jane tells Weller they should probably split up to cover more ground. He doesn’t think that’s a good idea. Jane tells him again they need to split up. This time he agrees. Jane is headed to the gym. She sees Coach Jones running and the shooter following him. She runs down the bleachers and is checking on the students who are shot. A campus police officer (Colin Israel) thinks she is the shooter and tells her to drop her weapon. She keeps telling him that she is with the FBI, but he doesn’t believe her. He gets close to her and she takes his gun. She tells him that they need to work together to find the shooter. Seriously dude needs to stop pointing the gun at her. They head to the cafeteria. They notice blood on the floor, but not body. They hear someone coming and it’s Karen. She was shot in her abdomen and is bleeding. Jane gets some napkins and it’s not stopping the bleeding. She gets a hot spatula and puts it on her wound. That stops the bleeding for a while. Jane with a spatula looked a little something like this 😉
Jane hears gun shots. She heads to the auditorium and shoots at the shooter. She distracts him long enough for Zapata to hit him on the head and arrest him. Japata for the win. They feel an explosion.
3 hours earlier. Weller was at the hospital with his dad Bill. Bill tells him he doesn’t need to stay with him because he doesn’t want to cramp his style. According to Weller, his style is already cramped. His dad tell him he is grateful to have him back and forgives him. Back to the situation at hand. Weller is going through the halls and notices someone in a lab. An employee was shot and tells him he knows who shot him. Levi Hart. Weller leaves the room to find Levi. He is about to open a door, but notices a bomb on the door. He has to get around so he goes back to the classroom and throws a mini fridge out of the window. He breaks the window and climbs out. He thinks he is Spiderman the way he is scaling the wall. He breaks another window and climbs in. He makes it to the other side of the door. He sees students and leads them to safety. He sees Levi. Levi starts shooting. Weller is trying to convince Levi to drop his weapon. Levi throws his weapon and Weller is about to approach him, but Levi pulls out a smaller weapon. There is an explosion in the middle of the hall. Weller is OK.
The team meets up back by the main entrance. Zapata found that they were interfering with their earpieces. They get their connection back and tell Patterson about the situation. Patterson goes to tell Mayfair. Weller fills them in. He tells her that they haven’t made contact with Reade.
4 hours earlier. Reade is with his tailor (Frank De Julio). He notices that read has lost weight. He knows its lady problems. He tells him he needs a new look. Say hello to the bowtie. Back to the University. Reade is going through the halls and hears someone crying. A girl named Valerie (Christy Escobar) is crying by her dead boyfriend. She doesn’t want to leave him, but Reade says they will come back for him once they are safe. He sees more students and tells them to stay calm. He is about to open a door and realizes that he just triggered a bomb. And the students stayed calm.
Valerie stays there and wants to help. He tells her it’s a bomb is like a grenade. They see a mini fridge fall out of a window. He needs something that he can put a pin in. He uses her earring and tells her to go as far as she can. Reade gives her enough time and he let’s the handle go. He runs in time and he is ok. But as he is getting up Levi holds a gun to his head. He wants to know where Coach Jones is. Reade agrees to take him to him. The earpieces come back on and Reade can hear Weller. Weller wants to know his location. Without letting Levi know, he is giving Weller and the team clues to where he is. Reade wants to know why Levi is doing this. Levi tells him that Coach Jones ruined his life. The camps he runs is just a way for him to get close to kids. He admits he didn’t know how to stop him and just accepted the scholarship and was paid off. They reach the field house and Reade knows the team is there. He gives Levi a final chance and tries to get him to put down his weapon. He doesn’t and Weller shoots him.
Reade is torn up about the situation and sees Coach Jones on a gurney. He goes to tell him how he feels.
The team is back at the office. Zapata realizes that the numbers are just the scores from when Jones was part of the staff. Mayfair says they are launching an investigation because the scholarship fund was just used for hush money to pay off the victims. Mayfair tells everyone to head home and get some rest.
Jane goes to see Oscar. She tells him that she almost died and tells him he is the right person to be her handler. When she is with him she feels safe.
Weller is in the locker room. He sees Reade and wants to help him. He gets a bottle of scotch and paper cups. No lecture, Weller is just being a friend.
Zapata is back at a Gamblers Anonymous meeting. She is willing to share this time. She tells everyone about when she was a cop with the 96th precinct. They got a call about a wife and her drunk husband. When she and her partner met them at the house, she went with the wife and her partner went with the husband. The husband shot her partner and then shot himself. She admits that with gambling she knew the rules and could control it and now she doesn’t feel he same.
Mayfair gives Sophia money. $48,345 to be exact. Mayfair reminds her that she could stay and would keep her safe. Sophia doesn’t think anyone can keep her safe. She wants Mayfair to go with her. Mayfair is not running.
Oscar and his friend (Chukwudi Iwuji) meet. They are in a freezer with Carter’s body.What are they doing with his body?
