Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow.
This week's Blindspot was probably the most socially charged episode we've seen, as it incorporated elements of both police brutality and national security. On the one hand, those definitely made this episode feel more of-the-moment and relevant to what has actually been going on in our world; even viewers with a cursory knowledge of current events likely picked up on some of the references. That said, certain parts of them were handled better than others.
In terms of the crooked cop storyline, this episode didn't use the police brutality angle very effectively. While the initial setup for the case was interesting -- the idea that someone was seeking retribution against the 65th Precinct for killing an unarmed black teenager -- the storyline itself had almost nothing to do with that. In fact, it very quickly devolved into another run-of-the-mill corruption case, complete with a laughable motivation from the dirty captain: "Athletes make more in a year than we make in a decade! THEY MUST PAY!!"
