Before its official return on NBC, Season 5 is already at work with the “stunts” from Blindspot starring Jaimie Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton. After the shocking events of Season 4, will Jane Doe (Alexander) and Kurt Weller (Stapleton) find a way to clear their names?
As we previously mentioned, Jane Doe (Alexander) found herself mysteriously covered with bioluminescent tattoos. Jane’s only clues are covered all her tattooed body. With the help of her husband, Kurt Weller (Stapleton), and the FBI’s Critical Incident Response Group, Jane has to figure what these mysterious tattoos mean before a major disaster occurs.
[SPOILERS AHEAD!!] Here are 5 reasons we’re excited for Blindspot Season 5:
5) Tasha Fights Back!?!
Known to fans as Tasha Zapata, Audrey Esparza shares a behind-the-scenes look at the stunt-work. On her Instagram page, Esparza reveals the hard work and coordination it takes to complete the action sequence. Did she just flip that guy over and punch his lights out?
4) She Beats Up Boys!
Esparza writes, “I beat up boys for breakfast…back to work with #blindspotstunts.”
3) That Cliffhanger!
In our interview, stunt actress Heidi Germaine Schnappauf discusses doubling for Jaimie Alexander, “Jaimie is the best experience as a stunt double I have ever had! She’s extremely kind, first of all. She’s willing to do everything to make it look good. Even if it means doing a certain move, allowing me to do a certain move, taking a harder hit, or starting a move and she’ll finish it; vice versa.”
2) Episode 501!
As we previously mentioned, the upcoming fifth season premiere is titled, “TBD.” The first episode of the fifth episode will be written by producing scribe, Chris Pozzebon. After directing the pilot, Mark Pellington will be back in the director’s chair.
1) That Cliffhanger!
When we last left Blindspot, during the fourth season finale, Jane (Alexander) witnessed their secret cabin exploding into a million pieces. Just before the explosion, Kurt (Stapleton) had patched things up with Reade (Rob Brown), Tasha (Esparza), and Patterson (Ashley Johnson). At this point, we’re not sure who’s in the casualty list from the drone attack!
Season 5 of Blindspot will premiere on NBC for its final season.
