Critic reviews for Split the Law

"Split the Law" also fills in the background of Jane Doe's abduction. Throughout the episode, her flashback scenes become more intense.

"Split the Law" helped me come to the conclusion that Blindspot is the strongest new show of the fall.

November 10, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Right now, Blindspot's greatest weakness is its two main characters, who have still yet to give us a reason to care about them.

This episode took a big step conveying the intense emotion behind the idea of Jane being Taylor, for both Jane and Kurt.

I know turf wars between law enforcement agencies are a real-life thing, but that near-gunfight made me laugh, which was probably not the intent.

Blindspot always felt like it could click into place at any moment, and "Split The Law" is the episode in which it finally turns into a real show.
