So far, no character name has been given, but here's a thought: Is it possible Panjabi is playing "Shepherd," the mysterious leader of Oscar's (Francois Arnaud) organization? When TVGuide.com spoke to series creator Martin Gero last month, he told us that Shepherd is someone we haven't seen before, but who will be "vastly important" in Season 2. (When asked whether Panjabi has in fact been cast as Shepherd, NBC said her character name is "still TBD." But it's fun to speculate!)
Blindspot's Season 1 finale ended with Jane killing Oscar and then winding up in handcuffs after Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) discovered that she wasn't Taylor Shaw after all. Will Panjabi's character be her friend or foe?
Season 2 of Blindspot premieres Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10/9c. The show moves to its new regular timeslot on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c.
