Blindspot Mega Buzz: What Is Shepherd's Connection to Weller?

They go back further than we thought

Liz Raftery

You can't blame the FBI agents on Blindspotfor feeling like the terrorist organization Sandstorm is one step ahead of them at every turn. Because Sandstorm is anticipating our heroes' every move -- and they're about to find out exactly why.

This week's episode will shed a little light on the matter, when the team discovers that Sandstorm's leader, Shepherd (Michelle Hurd), has been tracking the FBI for longer than anyone could have thought possible. Specifically, she's had her eye on Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) for years, ever since he was a very young man and before he was even involved with the bureau. So, what's behind her obsession with him?

Catch up on all this week's Mega Buzz!

The answer, we're told, will reveal the true nature of Shepherd's "decades-old connection" to Weller. Is it possible that, all along, Jane's (Jaimie Alexander) just been a pawn in Shepherd's true endgame: to track down Weller?
