First Look: Jane Doe Heads to Tokyo in the 'Blindspot' Season 4 Premiere (PHOTO)
Is there any fight Jane can’t win? Blindspot’s Season 4 premiere finds her channeling Uma Thurman’s character in Kill Bill — all through her dangerous alter ego!
Unbeknownst to her FBI colleagues, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) has reverted to her former persona Remi after a brush with a memory-wiping drug. That leads her to Tokyo in pursuit of a villain, with help from crime lord Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer).
"We open with epic shots of the Tokyo Tower," Alexander says of filming on location. And what would a trip to Japan be without a samurai battle? "I fight four guys with one sword, then I fight a woman with two swords," Alexander says, giving props to her "incredible" stunt double, Heidi Germaine Schnappauf.
"I did a good amount, but she did most of it. The samurai experts showed her so much respect."
