A woman is found alive inside a duffle bag dropped in Times Square. She doesn’t know how she got there or who she is and she’s naked—except for a cryptic head-to-toe tattoo. The first clue to her identity is the name of an FBI agent who’s never met her before, inked on the center of her back. Needless to say, the first episode of NBC’s new crime drama, Blindspot, which premieres Monday, September 21 at 10/9c, primes viewers for an intense season of suspense and mystery.
Jane Doe, played by Jaime Alexander of Kyle XY and Thor fame, teams up with agent Kurt Weller, played by Sullivan Stapleton of Strike Back and 300: Rise of An Empire, to unlock the mysteries of the full-body tattoo and her amnesia. The second clue to her past surfaces when Jane is attacked and defends herself à la Jason Bourne, which only adds to the enigma.
It’s the combination of action and sleuthing that promises to keep fans coming back and makes Blindspot a riveting entry into the fall TV line-up.
Keep up with the water cooler convo on this one (pausing Blindspot and pouring over Jane’s tattoos is optional extra credit). Blindspot premieres Monday, September 21 at 10/9c on NBC.
