Three episodes in, I'm not sure if Blindspot
is the show it quite wants to be yet. It is slowly getting there, though. There has been a steady increase in confidence and storytelling -- and that's not nothing. It's especially noteworthy in this new fall season which has been rather disappointing on the whole, particularly in the hour-long drama category.
"Eight Slight Grins" is probably the most focused look on Jane's character since the pilot and that only means good things. Jaimie Alexander is the best thing about Blindspot. She's able to do so much with so little and here she is asked to do a lot, so the reward by episode's end is even greater than usual.
