Exploring the art of storytelling.
“A Stray Howl” had a great, suspenseful opening. Jane Doe was in a car and being shot at. She ducked as glass shattered around her. In a voiceover, Jane said, “Everything just feels so out of control. I don’t remember who I am or who I was. The life I had is gone, shattered into a million tiny pieces.” The word “shattered” cleverly matched up with an image of broken glass falling on Jane’s face. At the end of the shot, we found out this scene was set ten hours in the future, immediately making me curious.
“A Stray Howl” both began and ended with cliffhangers. At the end of the episode, the “bad guy” was in Jane’s house. He grabbed her from behind and covered her mouth. I’m eager to see what happens next episode.
I’m still not completely hooked on “Blindspot.” It’s forgettable. I think it may be due to the fact that the characters just aren’t interesting enough. Let’s get deeper into these characters’ lives. I want to see their personalities shine in future episodes.
