“Blindspot” is a show that does love to drop the occasional surprise, and we do at the moment thing that the show is firmly giving us that and then some when it comes to the characters of Weller and Nas. These are two characters who were not necessarily anywhere close to the same wavelength at the start of this season, but that’s changed over time leading up to the two getting tangled up romantically recently.
Is there a future there? Well, let’s just say that the relationship status should be firmly placed on “it’s complicated.” In speaking on this subject to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Martin Gero passed along the following message:
“Nas and Weller are more alike than they want to admit … They’re both kind of loners, leaders, mono-fixated on a goal. They find a lot of comfort with each other — until Weller realized she’s bugging him. She’ll need to explain that one real quick if there’s any hope for something past a fling.”
Our general sentiment at present is that Weller is the type of person who will not let that go easily, and we also know that he’s dealing with a lot of trust issues at this point in his career. Just remember for a minute or two here everything else that he’s been through with Jane over the course of the past season. Does he really want to put himself in the long-term in a similar situation?
The one thing that may be interesting about the (possible) future for these two is that they are so much alike. In our mind, that could make it all the easier for the two of them to get along at times, but also clash at others. You have the same strengths, but also very similar weaknesses.
