Breakout NBC Drama Gets Back-Nine Script Order — What Made the Series Suddenly Hot?.

On NBC’s new drama Blindspot, Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) was dosed with an experimental memory loss drug, covered in tattoos and left for the FBI to find naked in a bag in Times Square.Mere days after the series starring Sullivan Stapleton and Jaimie Alexander premiered to a strong 10.6 million viewers and a 3.1 A18-49 demo rating, the network has ordered nine additional scripts, TVWise has confirmed.Despite some of the things Kurt (Sullivan Stapleton) has already seen Jane (Jaimie Alexander) do – like speaking in other languages, and being an incredible shot – he’s not, at this point anyway, wondering if there’s something up her tattooed sleeve. “I think, at first, we are quite suspicious as to why the FBI [was] directly linked to this case, this target and as to what this connection is and why his name is tattooed on her back.

The additional script order, which was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, make Blindspot the first fall series to receive such an order, although midseason Fox comedy Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Life has received an order for seven more episodes. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network placed a back-nine order for scripts for “Blindspot” after airing just a single episode.

And then, through obviously the investigation and all the tests they put her through, he realizes that she is telling the truth,” Sullivan told Access Hollywood during a recent conference call with reporters. “And so therefore, I think we do see that sort of — almost caring nature [from] of him and the fact that he does sympathize or empathize with the fact that she – she’s lost and [he] obviously understands that it would be quite hard to lose your identity and who you are or where you’re from.” In Monday night’s new episode, Sullivan’s character Kurt, will attempt to give Jane a little training, until – as preview photos seem to reveal – she turns the tables on him. “I don’t know about suspicion, I just think that opens up the door to actually really trying to find out who she is or how she understands different aspects of the world we’re in,” Sullivan said. “She understands weapons and fighting. Given the series’ ratings—10.61 million viewers tuned in to watch the premiere, which earned a 3.1 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic—this should come as no surprise. The move came on the heels of news that the freshman show’s premiere episode posted a huge increase in viewers in delayed viewing among the key 18-49 demo. Check out the report below for a look at the new episode. “An Air Force pilot with a destructive plan is on the team’s radar thanks to one of Jane’s tattoos. What follows is a real account of trying to do so: Let’s go back to August when I spoke with executive producer Martin Gero: He provided clues on two of the upcoming tattoos.

ET/PT, “Blindspot” stars Jaimie Alexander as the amnesiac “Jane Doe,” who’s discovered naked in Times Square, her body covered in intricate tattoos — one of which is the name of FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton). Meanwhile, Jane recalls bits and pieces of an unsettling memory; and Weller believes he might know who Jane really is.” “The script that I read was great, and it was a great story. One of the tattoos that will be featured in the second episode include a set of numbers and letters that read 399/IHRTVLALVKBBHHJ/7, which was magically going to provide a person’s name. “Well, that’s super fun because that’s actually a puzzle that there’s no official address or anything. But it’s not just a weekly procedural because it’s [centered] on this woman [Jaimie Alexander] who has all these tattoos on her body that are all messages. That’s the exciting part about it. “Then the team, [creator] Martin Gero, [executive producers] Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter — it was just a great team to be part of.

The tattoo in the pilot — Chinese lettering behind Jane’s ear — was solved by her literally translating the language — the Wenzhounese dialect, specifically — to the day’s date and a street address: 399 White Street, Apt. 7. You’ll notice a very glaring similarity between the tattoos from the pilot and episode 2: The numbers 399 and 7 bookend them, which tells us that they are connected somehow. I was having a tough time decoding it and had drafted a whole email to you on why I was having a tough time… until I just got to the trailer at the end of the episode, which reveals this tattoo! By the by, in my imagination, Gero was sitting behind his computer screen, laughing that I could not solve his apparently easily solvable riddle, because I got a quick response: “Great.

There was also one random cipher I kept seeing pop up, Vigenère, but it involved having a keyword, which I know I didn’t have, so I ruled it out immediately (and stupidly). In this case, the keyword is one letter shorter than the message, which means you would start the keyword over from the beginning, using the letter W twice. In short, a message encrypted using the Vigenère cipher means each letter in the message is replaced by a letter some fixed number of positions down the alphabet. Continue the process until you get the actual answer and feel like a genius … before realizing you already had the answer and probably would never have figured it out without it. “Vigenère.

Finally when you confirmed cipher (jerk, I said no more hints!), I passed by it again and actually found one that would do it for me, which gave me the correct answer.
