*Spoiler Alert!* The next (clearly) accommodates spoilers for the sequence finale of Blindspot.
Regardless that Blindspot solely lasted for 5 seasons complete, so much has occurred over the course of the sequence’ 100 episodes. The characters have discovered themselves in tons of life-or-death conditions, had their reminiscences erased, fallen in love, fallen out of affection, died — mainly, if one thing might occur to an individual, it occurred to somebody on Blindspot.
However the Blindspot sequence finale may even have a number of the most stunning plot twists but. Or perhaps we must always say “complicated.” We’re not the one ones who have been tremendous confused by that ending, proper? Was Jane hallucinating an alternate universe? Did Jane actually die this time? Right here’s our try at explaining the ending of Blindspot — though, truthful warning, it looks like quite a lot of stuff was put on this episode particularly to be unexplainable.
Did Jane die within the ‘Blindspot’ finale? Ending defined:
The sequence ends very equally to the way it started: With Jane Doe being zipped up in a bag in Occasions Sq.. Nonetheless, whereas the present begins with Jane very a lot alive (albeit with a very erased reminiscence), the present ends with Jane’s useless physique being zipped up in a physique bag. (Or does it?!)
Jane and Weller labored collectively to efficiently defuse a ZIP bomb that might have erased the reminiscences of mainly everybody in New York Metropolis, however their celebration was lower brief as Jane realized she had been uncovered to an excessive amount of ZIP poisoning, collapses to the bottom, and dies (perhaps). Underneath the results of the ZIP poison, Jane spent just about your complete sequence finale hallucinating about virtually each character who has ever been on the present. Even a number of the useless ones.
The factor is, it additionally felt like we as viewers have been hallucinating alongside along with her, so it’s arduous to know for certain which “actuality” was really actual. In a single actuality, Jane dies from the ZIP poisoning and is zipped up within the physique bag. Within the different, she and Weller get their completely satisfied ending, and so do Patterson, Wealthy, Boston, and Zapata.
#blindspot I am crying, nonetheless cannot make sense of the ending. Is Jane useless or not, after they cease the bomb, did Jane die, and with them returning to the FBI and the completely satisfied ending with everybody on the desk, was that Jane’s final hallucination earlier than she died. I am so confused.😭😭😭

After the finale aired, followers took to social media to specific their confusion. Some individuals have been sure that Jane was actually useless and her hallucinations have been simply her mind attempting to provide her a (pretend) completely satisfied ending. Others remained satisfied that her dying was the precise hallucination and the completely satisfied ending was actual. We’re personally within the “Jane is useless now” camp, however we completely get why some individuals assume she’s not!
Collection creator Martin Gero isn’t a lot assist with regards to Jane’s precise destiny. In an interview with Collider, he mentioned, “I don’t assume there’s a right interpretation of it. I clearly have my intent, and I and the writers have a powerful thought of what we consider. However we wished it to be a little bit of a Rorschach take a look at, and I can’t consider how efficient it’s.”
“50 % of the individuals [who saw the finale ahead of time] assume she’s undoubtedly alive, and 50 % of the individuals assume she’s undoubtedly useless. We wished it to be every little thing for everyone.” Not useful, Martin! Not useful!
she’s useless. ain’t no fancy, twisty ambisuous ending gonna persuade me in any other case. the entire present whereas wonderful was twists and turns and ambiguity however this one episode might have been jane getting her completely satisfied ending. #Blindspot

It appears to be like like there’s just one option to clear up this thriller for good: Begin rewatching the sequence and see if the finale is smart the second time round (we’re not gonna maintain our breath on that one, although).
