Well I am late to the game. Just finished BlindSpot beginning to end from finding it on Hulu about 3 weeks ago. I was hooked from beginning to end! I see the end both ways. But of course hoped Jane lived so another season could be made! Then I just discovered that season. 5 episode 11 was the finale! My opinion is people who weren’t watching it and ratings were down is a complete mystery to me!!! If I had network tv I would have been glued! Please bring a spin-off back of this!!!!! Great show, great cast! Thank you for providing such a great show!
I think the whole story was awesome! Reminded me of the book 'Heros and Villians' by Angela Carter. I think the ending alludes to a quantum outcome -- she lives and dies.
This is the best action/ drama series I’ve seen! Kept me addicted the whole way. Loved how the episode ending just drew me into the next episode, almost a given! I like the first ending at the end of season 5… all that excitement and sacrifice deserves a happy ending … wished the after-scene of the the bag hadn’t followed… confusing, and Kind of tainted my closure . Regardless, great work! Congrats to all!
I absolutely loved the show. Although I wished that Reed had made a surprise appearance at the end, that a nurse had gone to Times Square to administer the antidote to Jane after disabling the zip bomb, and that Weller’s daughter Bethany had been in the final dinner, I thought season 5 was thrilling, exciting, creative, addicting, funny, smart, just like all previous seasons. Loved Patterson and Rich.com. Jane was brilliant and Weller was great as the head of the office and throughout the show as well. The whole team was cohesive and each member was important for the success of the series. Tasha was amazing. Dr. Borden was great; too bad he turned out to be one of the bad guys. Weitz and Afreen did great a the end as the “resistance” duo. Boston was awesome too. Loved all the nerds’ sense of humor and wit. I wish Briana had survived and been rescued. I know, too good to be true… I definitely believed Jane lived and the dinner scene was real. I figured she was just imagining what would have happened had she died at Times Square. Also, as other viewers said above, the dinner scene was real because Jane had not heard about Patterson’s new plan with Rich.com. And also because Reed was not there. So I want to believe she lived. :) Please, we all want a spin-off…! Thanks for this great series. It helped me navigate through the pandemic. Looking forward to Martin Gero’s next creations!
Great ending. Jane’s character was powerful but exhausted at the same time. Her character was not designed for a sappy perfect ending. She went out of the series like she came in ….. in a black bag containing an intricate character. Goodbye Jane Doe. Thanks for the 5 season rollercoaster ride!!
I kinda get the 50/50 split but she was declared dead, just saying. Body bag shot was just for a scenic view. Dinner is the perfect ending a normal Jane probably would have gotten.
I loved this show. I really liked the dynamics between all the team members. I thought how fitting that the show started with her coming out of the bag and finished with her going back in the bag. Initially I thought she had died but then thinking back with her clearing out her desk and getting on the elevator with the team I decided she had lived. The dinner party was the future and her dying was only something that could have happened if things turned out differently. I know many could not pick out a favorite but I really grew to love Patterson and also Rich right behind her. I thought their acting was superb and their humor made up for any shortcomings elsewhere in the show. I would love to have friends like that in real life. Thank you for keeping me entertained for the last year plus.
I was thoroughly amazed with every plot twist and turn. I was drawn in from the very first episode I watched (and ended up binge watching the entire 5 seasons)! Suspense and intrigue interwoven with serious social and moral debates, along with lively action scenes, made this show by far one of my all-time favorites. I'm looking forward to a spin-off or a "part 2" with more puzzles to solve. And to work Bill Nye the Science Guy in as Patterson's dad, including the explanation of her mysterious first name was pure genius! The intellectual chemistry between Patterson and Rich.com (and also between Patterson and David) was fabulously entertaining! I always love when movies and series focus on the importance of using deep levels of intelligence to solve crimes and/or social dilemmas. Outstanding cast and crew! Bravo, Martin Gero--I look forward to watching your next project!
I believe Jane lived because surely if she'd died and was in her 'heaven' then Reade would've been there with Tasha so in my mind the Times Square scene was just her imagining what could've happened and how lucky they are. Although real or imagined the death scene still made me cry.
I watch The Flash too, so to me it’s obviously the multiverse theory. On one earth she lived, while on a parallel earth she did not ;)
Jane Lives! I only stumbled on this show surfing hulu but purposely watched every episode since the 1st episode. I loved how the show changed through the seasons with all the action,intrigue, puzzling and character relationships ever evolving. I don’t have a favorite character but I enjoyed watching each character & their relationships grow/change. In the finale Janes hallucinations were all about her past & persons passed. Just before the Zip-bag scene Kurt mentions other possible realities that may have been if not for...I believe the dinner party is a celebration of all their lives & takes place in the future, Janes Future. So I’m happy knowing Jane lives & the Zip-scene is just a glimpse (by Jane) into one of those other possible realities.
I loved this series and wish it would not have ended but hope there will be a spin-off!!
I believe she is alive and the death scene is symbolic of her past now behind her and finished...dead!
Did anyone notice the new team of FBI agents looked like the old team? Like our 5 heroes were easily replaced, life goes on. This was as they were getting on the elevator.
all 5 got on the elevator with their cleaned out desk boxes. This was after defusing the bomb. So doesnt that mean she lived?
Ending was serprising but if there was a chance to vote i would vote on more seasons... you just get hooked on something then they say end of series no man.....
I personally thought the ambiguous ending was ingenious! I’m an optimist so I choose to believe she lived. However, I can easily see how I could believe she died if I was a pessimist. Honestly, so clever.
Loved the series and will miss it. Very disappointed at the ending. Jane clearly died, but I would have preferred she lived. She went through too much to end it that way! Would have loved a happy ever after ending!
I just loved it all and was really enjoying when watching. Jane was superb in her acting including Waller. I used to picture this in real life...Jane as my wife then Waller as me. I loved the courage and determination that the team had. I chose that Jane has to live despite consuming so much zip. For me that dinner was a celebration that they overcame all odds. It's a happy ending for me.(Excellent)
Fight scene-awesome.....all characters-awesome.....open ending-awesome-Jane is alive....spinoff is already actually started....
the last hurrah Jane fight scene was epic..the cameos of all the dead villains was genius:) I believe died in the end as the dinner scene had that heavenly glow coloration to it.. to me this finale more than made up for the slow downhill path it had been taking imo since season 3.
Loved the finale and the series as a whole. That fight scene with Jane at the cathedral was by far the most epic fight sequence that Jane's stunt double has EVER pulled off in the show and the flow of the choreography in that fight scene was perfect. I was in awe as I watched it.
Loved it all been a fan since the start and I want to believe she is alive and they are all together!
So my husband and I have been fateful viewers recording each episode and watching from day one of the series. I was inticipating Jane dying on Times Square. So when the big dinner scene happened I was so happy . I turned and said to my husband I just knew she wasn’t going to make it....but then the scene of Jane dying in Times Square showed and we looked at each other and said “ was it an hallucination?” And he said which scene? Then we both agreed ....we chose to believe that the dinner scene was the way it ended...We are suckers for happy endings!!We truly enjoyed this series!!Thank you so much!!
I think the show went downhill a few seasons ago. Bits and pieces it became the last couple of years. This was a LOST ending, however part of me thinks that she is still alive because if this was her heaven why wouldn’t Reed be in it. Still love all of the actors.
I choose to believe she lived. Why can’t we just let people be happy. Not everything has to end in tragedy. It’s bad enough David and Reade has to die but to make Jane die too that’s just way over the top!! Maybe she’s just realizing how horrible it would’ve been had she not survived.
I believe she lived but there are hints throughout that BOTH are definetly possible. Following up on what Olga said about a movie, but instead of a continuation just have a movie that covers the 5 seasons and that has a clearer ending so everyone that really wants to know what happens and doesn't want to interpret it (me included) would know for sure if she lived or died! PLEASE consider doing that. A spinoff show with Patterson and Rich would be great too.
I hated the ending! I choose to believe Jane lived
I am devastated, both by the finale and the fact that the series is over. I loved all the characters - the actors were terrific. I want to believe Jane lived, she deserved it so much. The scene in Times Square seemed like a closure of the story. After all, Jane was found in Times Square, in a duffle bag just like the one holding the bomb. Circle of life. But I know she beat the odds. I have to believe that to keep from crying. Please bring it back - a spin-off if nothing else!
Broke my heart. I chose to believe she lived
Broke my heart. Hated the ending
I rarely watch network television. Happened upon Blindspot while searching Hulu this year. Watched all five seasons in the past several months. I absolutely love the show, and wish it hadn't ended. I hope that there is a spin-off at the very least. All of the actors were amazing; love how Gero, who is Canadian, used so many talented Canadian and Australian actors. I absolutely adore Rich.com and Peterson. Ashley Johnson is so talented! Really I have to say that this is the show I have been most obsessed with since Lost. (I also loved Longmire.). But aside from Blindspot and Longmire, I really cannot find anything else as good. Welcome any suggestions. But please bring Blindspot back!
I think Jane lived.In her hallucinations it was with dead people.Like someone said how could she have known some of the things she did if she were dead.I don't think the baby was Zapata's.I think it was one of Jane and Kurt's foster kids.The baby was white.I think Jane was thinking about how it could have ended.Like someone said they wouldn't have left her body alone.Kurt wouldn't be having a party.I think it was her way of showing she had come full circle from the beginning.She seemed to snap out of what she was thinking when Kurt called her name.
Personally I believe both happened, like Weller said "in another life it would have been different", I believe these were two realities. One where she lived one where she died.
I also believe Jane lived, and that the seemingly illusionary passages were just to present the *possibility* that she died, as a very stylish way to combine with the true recap story! And you better believe I will miss this show right to my last days, loved this one faithfully and completely! I could have watched this show forever, as long as I could. Unlike some of our commenters here, I appreciate the could-go-either-way ending as a stylish, thoughtfulness added to a show's ending that is difficult for hardcore fans! Just think, there was no ambiguity about "Chuck's" ending, and I disliked it incredibly...having Chuck have to win her over again was not right. Didn't happen that way, in Blindspot - THANK YOU to the creators, crew and of course the actors, we fell in love with!
This is is the first show that I ever watched faithfully on television. I hate the fact that it ended. I loved the show. I stumbled on it by accident during the first episode. I hardly watch television, but it was all worth it. I fell in love with the show. Some aspect of the ending was great. It appeared as if Jane died. There should definitely be a spin off.
The Blindspot finale was intense specially the Cathedral fight scenes.... It was awesome! Likewise, I really love how they twist the episode ending was done.... They make the audience think on Jane's fate, its a think tank :-) ????????????
Say it isn't so! Watched this show since the beginning even recorded it so I could say it turn on during the off season! Please, please bring it back it is an awesome series.
I literally cried the last 15 min of the show. Im still confused about the ending. I don't want Jane dead but it feels like that's what happened. Especially when Kurt made the comment about how in a different universe the wrong turn or wrong wire wouldn't have let them have that dinner. And Zappata had her and Reed's baby and Jane's daughter was back and Bill Nye and... and... and.... I'm going to miss this show sooooooo much!! NOT FAIR!!!
Brilliant. Mesmerizing. Unmatched.
I’ll miss ever single think about this show.
Thanks for a great 5 years to each and everyone involved in the making of Blindspot.
I think Jane died. Even before I saw the last part I was thinking that every thing was coming full circle. She was discovered in a bag when the series started and I think ended up in one as well.
FAN From India.Would love to have a Blindspot spinoff with Rich Dotcom and Patterson
I think is one of the best series 9f all times. Always dast and furious and with great characters. I loved Patterson way and the actress played her beautifully. The finale? M. Gero is right when he says that everyone will have their own interpretation. My finale does not include Jane's death but only because i love happy ending.
Anyway, just great show
Would’ve rated the finale a B except for the ambiguous ending which to me came off as overly gimmicky and kinda lazy writing. I believe Jane is alive because the dinner scene included Patterson and Rich talking about their treasure hunt which Jane wouldn’t have known about had she been hallucinating. And all her hallucinations were of people who were dead so it makes no sense for the rest of the team to be there if that was a vision. I think the last Times Square scene was her imagining what almost happened.
I did not like the ending at all. After 5 years we deserve better than it be it being left up for our interpretation. My only reasons for believing she was dead are the fact that she stopped the zip cure in order to find the rest of it and where were she and Kurt during the goodbyes to the dead and each other? Kurt obviously would be devastated over Jane. And I still don't understand the dinner party.
This sucks! I thought I liked the ending thinking that Jane did survive after all, and now I read this crap that it was an interpretive ending and I'm pissed! That's just a power trip writers/producers have. Fans deserve a clear all loose ends happily ever after ending! It's just what's ethically and humanly right as a show of appreciation for giving up our time to watch the show you wouldn't have without us! What a waste of my time and what a negative feeling. I wish the actors had enough control to not allow this crap that disrespects the fans! Glad you guys enjoyed the power trip at our expense!
I think all of the people who watched this show for 5 years deserved a clear ending. The ending sucked big time. Whoever thinks that people want to interpret their own ending is just being selfish and doing what they want. Not all people have a clear ending when they watch it and that is just a miserable place to sit with an ending. I was a huge fan of the show, never missed a episode but the end was so very disappointing. Had I known it would end this way I would have never started watching the show.
I am not a fan of interpretation endings. I want to know for sure what happens . But in the end I believe Jane lived. Her friends and Weller would never leave her body alone like that . I’m sad to see the show go. I wish more people could see what an amazing show it was and it could have gotten more seasons . But my favorite character is and always has been Patterson. I am so glad she survived . Please PLEASE do a Patterson spin off show! I would LOVE that .
"Jane lived, because no one would have left her body alone in Times Square."
That's another great point. Perhaps she didn't die.
"I refuse to believe that Jane died in the final scene. I believe it was a flash thought of fear of what could have happened to her, if not, for her incredible friends."
I never thought of that. That's an interesting perspective. I still believe that she did die. I think it's terrific that the creator left it up in the air.
I hated the ending. These guys did everything to gain their reputations back. They deserved to br re-instated as FBI agents. By not reinstating them you made the bad guys win. They lost their reputation because of Madeleine Burke, so Madeleine Burke won, Mr. Gero. After everything these decent FBI agents went through to save the city from terrorist attacks, they deserved to be reinstated. So Mr. Gero in your mind, crime pays and wins. That's terrible. The last episode is the worst !!
Really loved the season. Loved the characters. Hated ending. Let down big time that the best team lost Reed. Really thought they would find him in a hospital somewhere at the ending. Hated the not knowing what really happened with Jane. After committing five seasons of watching faithfully this was a ending I hated. I am sad and feel betrayed by the writers
I refuse to believe that Jane died in the final scene. I believe it was a flash thought of fear of what could have happened to her, if not, for her incredible friends. Personally, the writing felt rushed and the scenes not full and finished. The camera angles left much to be desired as there were too few up close, psychological shots. The strength of this series was the strength of the characters themselves and the bond shared. Wow! The fierce love that Weller has for his wife! Way to go writing team and actors. Please-please bring them back in a spin-off show. Thank you for all that you did to bring viewers this series!
I believe that everything played out just as it did. Right up to the point that, in the future scene, the zip cure began to stop working for Jane. I think that she had one last hallucination. Where it was her who died - as someone rightly pointed out - a body would have never been left alone in mid Times Square with no one else in sight. Curt would not have left her side until the coroner took her body, at the very least.
Rich and Patterson continued to share their stories about a discussed topic before the bomb incident (which was shared in the lab away from Jane's presence). How would Jane be able to know about that if it were an afterlife sequence?
Jane lived, because no one would have left her body alone in Times Square. Her death was a hallucination of the zip that stayed with her after the antidote
So sorry to see this show end i believe Jane was still alive wish it wasn't ending
I hated the end to think she might be dead
The many episodes brought attachment, and connection with the show!
It was the communication between the protagonists.
It was the communication between the protagonists and the antagonists!
The finale brought emotion, anticipation and tears!
We share, and with prayer, Peace and Good Health for all????
Respectfully and sincerely. THANK YOU ????❣️
Great cast ensemble and I will truly miss the crazy action every week!!! Well done on the finale!!! Another amazing show for the record books!
I think she died
I believe Jane lives‼ I will miss this show‼
