After deciphering one of the tattoos on the Tattooed Lady's body, the team gets the address of Chao, a Chinese immigrant. Chao speaks the Wenzhou dialect of the Wu language, nicknamed "the Devil Language" for both its complexity and its divergence from the main language. While breaking into Chao's apartment, FBI Agent Kurt Weller takes along the Tattooed Lady with him because she apparently speaks the Wenzhou dialect fluently and would be useful in interrogating Chao.

Instead of Chao, the team find his startled roommate Wai. When Kurt asks Tattooed Lady to ask Wai about Chao's room, he calls her Jane, although they had not designated her Jane Doe at that time. See more »

In what was a rather avid marketing campaign by NBC, Blindspot turned out to be just okay. In the end there just wasn't anything special. Our leads Jaimie Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton were fine but I think the former tried a bit too hard to make something out of a pretty bland script. But Stapleton, of 300 fame, was formidable and I can definitely see him leading more films or TV shows in the future.

I think people, including myself, tuned in because of the supposed mystery that surrounded the marketing, and rightfully so. The show looked pretty cool thematically and visually. But it turns out to be rather silly. The FBI are portrayed with a certain amount of ineffectiveness. Not only is there consistently not enough man power in the field, but they bring in the mystery girl out in the field as well. It just doesn't make much sense.

The mystery behind the tattoos is also pretty much revealed in the pilot which is a mystery in and of itself. Because for people like me who thought the 'twist' or the 'answer' was stupid, we now have no reason to come back and watch. So overall it was a pretty lame episode for a likely lame show.
