Great episode!

I'd like to see a spin-off.

That touch at the end was creepsville.

Me too. But Solomon will be back. He's one of the series regulars if the spin-off get's picked up. (Awkward!)

Yeah Ryan Eggold signed on as a series regular for the spinoff if it gets picked up. If it doesn't, he will stay on the main show.

I am not that interested in the spin-off. Tom just doesn't scream a character that can carry a series.

I'm down with a series with Solomon and Tom as regulars. Same with Scottie. I've enjoyed the character in what little we have seen. Only issue I potentially see so far is more of the same factor. Including the parent/child issue. I will definitely give it a shot if it's picked up.

The actual episode definitely made me even more interested in seeing the finale. The cherry picking morals speech was quite good.

With the new show being officially greenlit, I would expect some crossovers next season.

Very possible it could end up at the Thursday at 10pm timeslot with The Blacklist as it's lead-in.

Quality episode. The cop in the bank should have just laid low until the "bank robbers" left. I discussed this topic in a Blindspot thread last year. You're taught to just let the bank robbers rob the bank and attempt to catch them later. You don't risk anyone's life or try to be a hero in that situation. It's just not worth it.

Unless you are a superhero.

Are you talking about security guards, or cops?

From what I've been told from a retired FBI agent (who now does consulting for banks/bank robberies), victims involved in a bank robbery should just cooperate and the robbery shouldn't escalate into a kidnapping or murder. They just want the money. Catch them later after an investigation. This is assuming the police haven't arrived yet. Of course if the police are already outside the bank, then that's a different scenario that involves different tactics (I don't know the rules of engagement for that).

In this case, it's a fictional tv show and they didn't want the money, but in reality, bank robbers just want the money.

Just finished watching this. That was a pretty good set up for the spinoff.

Guess Tom/Christopher keeping his real identity secret to Scottie will be a big part of it. In a way it has a Liz/Red type vibe, but some awkward sexual tension as well.

Famke still looks good for her age, but you could see she's had a lot of work done on her face.

Tom's going to be pissed when Solomon comes back for the spinoff next year.

Was Alexander Kirk Proctor from Banshee? Looked like him.
