Feature: The Birth of a Leader [a study of Kurt Weller and Jack Shephard]

I absolutely love when shows remind me of other shows, and stories remind me of other stories, and characters remind me of other characters, especially when they’re ones that I absolutely love. Blindspot in its first season reminded me a lot of Alias and that led me to an Alias rewatch and to be honest, watching Alias again, and studying Sydney Bristow again, has really helped me understand Blindspot and Jane Doe more clearly.

And so Wednesday night (well, Thursday morning) while I watched this week’s episode of Blindspot (202 - Heave Fiery Knot), and as I watched Kurt Weller’s storyline develop, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Lost and Jack Shephard. And the funny thing is, Thursday was September 22, marking the 12th anniversary of Lost’s premiere. Now as some of you might know, I (the Yas half of this rambly duo) is a huge Lost fan. And I mean, huge. It is my favorite show of all time. For me it sets the bar for any other show. And so far, in my books, no show has come close to it. And so to say that Kurt reminded me of Jack… that’s huge.
