And Jane has "remembered" a few bits here and there that you really think it's her.

Then you find the real Taylor's body and know Janes a fraud and you think he should act all logical and level headed ?

I'm sure they will finally talk next season and see what transpires from there. Come on season 2

Yeah, good points. I don't listen to my wife and didn't have any of those things happen to me.

Season Two - starts TONIGHT

Season 2 of Blindspot starts tonight at 10pm, right after America's Got Talent's Final Results.

I wonder if the season is going to get mellowed a bit since next week it moves to its regular time slot: 8pm E/P on Wednesdays.

Yes. In an article I read earlier in the Summer, they said no more shots to the head

Jane is like an old Timex. She takes a licking and keeps on ticking. So we have a secret division of the NSA who watched them all last season now join the gang, an unidentified mole in the FBI and Shepard is her mum. And here I thought the dome was coming down on this show. This is tv gold.

Well, not her literal biological mum...

I'm more curious how Shepard and company have a full blown space launch vehicle / rocket. Is she going to take over the ISS? Or were they meeting in a museum and the rocket is a large exhibit?

First, no one would have an assembled multistage rocket on it's side. Second, that's no ballistic missile if that's what they're trying to allude to. That's a satellite or crewed capsule launching rocket.

They got it from a SPECTRE garage sale. Mrs. Blofeld was getting tired of all the unused missiles in their volcano beach home.

Neither of which were part of your premise.

Clearly (except to you) my comments were in the context of the show. I stand by my comment that no one would put together a multistage rocket on it's side in the manner they have shown in the show. If you feel better pointing out that I did not include a list of caveats to my post indicated when it would be acceptable and how this differs, well, more power to you. Whatever helps you sleep at night...

They never said they were still building it. Could've been built upright and is now being stored as we see it. It really doesn't matter how it was built, only what they plan to do with it.

Extremely unlikely. The stresses on the joints in the rockets when it's brought from horizontal to vertical are why it's not done. Extra mass is not your friend when lifting a payload via rocket, so reinforcing things to handle the stress of tipping wouldn't be prudent.

On a TV show anything is possible.
