Meanwhile, WARNING: This article will contain spoilers for “Bone May Rot” and Season 1 Episode 5 “Split the Law”. Read on to learn more about what will happen next to Jane and Weller, and to see where Jane’s tattoos will lead her to next.
The episode began two years ago at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Walter Tunnell (Doug Barron), who had a tear in his hazmat suit, instantly died of a particular virus, in front of his student and now colleague, Juliet Chang (Jennifer Ikeda).
In the present day, Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) was told more about Taylor Shaw by FBI Special Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) with supervision from Dr. Borden (Ukweli Roach).
Afterwards, they were sent to the CDC as FBI Forensic Science Unit Head Patterson (Ashley Johnson), with some help from her puzzle enthusiast boyfriend, David (Joe Dinicol). He had managed to unlock a tattoo that led them directly there, where, they discovered several sequences had been tattooed onto Jane’s forehead and cheeks, that corresponded to several vials of deadly viruses that had suddenly gone missing.
Shortly afterwards, they were placed on lockdown. Later, FBI Agent Tasha Zapata (Audrey Esparza) and FBI Agent Edgar Reade (Rob Brown) discovered that the Director of Epidemiology, Rebecca Fine (Natalie Thomas) has suddenly disappeared and had triggered the lockdown remotely from Brooklyn.

Before the lockdown was lifted, Weller told Jane about the day that she had disappeared and that his father had been suspected of kidnapping her. She then remembered that someone had indeed taken her from her room when she was a child. Later, she recognized the fact that Weller had been blaming himself all these years as he was supposed to be looking after her.
Later, after mapping out where Rebecca had traveled to recently, they realized that she had been starting and creating outbreaks. This was also later confirmed by the fact that she had a mini laboratory in Brooklyn, had been trying to aerosolize the virus.
They then caught her and her husband trying to get away from her planned target area, but she killed herself.
They then discovered that the virus was going to be set off in two hours time at the Manhattan Cruise Ferry. Almost all of the cruise passengers would be getting on planes, thus spreading the virus everywhere.
They then managed to control it, but they later on discovered that Dr. Frank Suri (Paul Fitzgerald) had been in on the plan as the two wanted to save the planet by wiping out the human race. However, thanks to Jane, he was knocked out.
Afterwards, FBI Assistant Director Bethany Mayfair (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) was approached by CIA Director Thomas “Tom” Carter (Michael Gaston), who was getting nervous about Jane; and Tasha was confronted by her bookie.
Later, Johnson told Weller that she was now confused as to Jane’s identity as her DNA was a match for Taylor, but the isotopes on her tooth said that she was from Africa.
However, according the promotional video released on Spoiler TV, it seems as if Jane and Weller will be going head to head with Carter soon. The video previewed the fact that one Jane’s tattoos will lead them directly to Operation Daylight and to Carter himself.
The clip also shows Mayfair ordering them to stand down and shows Carter preparing to shoot Jane at a cemetery.
And that was all for the recap and spoilers for “Blindspot” Season 1 Episode 4 “Bone May Rot” and for Episode 5 “Split the Law,” respectively.
