Blindspot Season 3 Episode 7: "Fix My Present Havoc" Quotes
Reade: Hirst hired me because I have a weakness she could exploit, same as Van Gogh. At least his weakness was noble.
Zapata: Reade, you need to stop beating yourself up about this.
Reade: No, you don't understand. She's still manipulating me. She wants me to remove you from the team.
Zapata: None of that matters anymore. We have Van Gogh. You don't have to do anything for Hirst ever again.
Weller: Do you regret keeping everything from him?
Vance: No... not one bit. If I'd have told him about the blackmail, he'd have left the trial. I knew that. And I had already watched him battle cancer for two years. He was in agony all the time. So, I made a decision. If lying to the person I love means sparing them horrible pain... I'll lie.
Allison: [Vance] has been lying to his husband for two years.
Kurt: He kept this from him to protect him, that's not such a bad thing.
Allison: That is such a Kurt Weller response.
Kurt: What's that supposed to mean?
Allison: You always think you have to protect everyone. But shielding someone from the truth isn't heroic, it's just dishonest. People can handle more than you give them credit for.
Hirst: I think Zapata found her tribe when she joined the CIA.
Reade: What do you mean?
Hirst: They're snakes. And I want this taskforce to proceed without them. First thing tomorrow morning, you will revoke Zapata's FBI clearance, and you'll inform her that she is no longer a part of your team.
Reade: But why?
Hirst: I don't trust her. And neither should you. A history like yours... illicit drug use... it makes you vulnerable. Someone like Zapata could use that against you.
Weller: I'm sorry, I know it's a lot to ask.
Allison: Do you want our daughter to grow up visiting us both in prison?
Patterson: We... we don't have anyone else we can trust. We just need that one file, that is all.
Allison: Oh, I brought the file. I just want you all to feel appropriately guilty from dragging me down with you.
Patterson: Oh, well, that's... a little mean, but okay.
