You know that awful nightmare people have about standing in a public place naked? That's Jane Doe's reality on Blindspot.

NBC's highly anticipated new drama stars Thor's Jaimie Alexander as a woman who wakes up with no memory of who she is and her body covered in tattoos that also act as clues. Oh yeah, and she's found by the FBI in a a duffle bag in the middle of Times Square. Naked.

We have your exclusive first look at what is definitely going to be one of the most talked-about scenes of the 2015 fall TV season, which actually shut down Times Square for a night. Seriously. 



"For the opening scene, we worked all night, putting on the tattoos," Alexander says. "We actually closed down Times Square at four in the morning. I didn't even know that was possible. I've never see an area as iconic and as busy as Times Square completely vacant."

Also, we suggest you proceed with caution as you are about to develop a huge crush for Alexander, who delivers a seriously badass performance in the pilot. And actually spent over two hours inside that tiny duffle bag for the scene.

"A lot of people don't realize I was actually in the bag the whole time," she reveals. "I've never been a claustrophobic person, but I have to say they went a little smaller than I thought they would go. It was a little snug in there." Oh, and it was freezing cold outside. "I think it was 11 or 12 degrees outside," Alexander adds. (Like we said: badass.)

Yeah, it's easy to see why Alexander calls the scenes "the most epic" one she's ever shot in her career. Watch the epic scene go down in the exclusive video above now. 

Blindspot premieres Monday, Sept. 21 on NBC.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
