Although we last saw The Blacklist's Red Reddington (James Spader) on his knees, arrested by the FBI, he won't be sitting out the second part of Monday's finale (10/9c, NBC). "His relationship with the FBI is similar, but now obviously it's more complicated," star Megan Boone told reporters at a recent lunch in West Hollywood. "He still has answers they need to stop a major catastrophe, and that major catastrophe is Berlin. In their mind, he has information about Berlin that they need in order to stop civilian casualties and a huge catastrophe in New York City. He still has leverage."
Berlin is coming for Red.
On Monday, The Blacklist (10/9c, NBC) kicks off the first of a two-part epic season finale. "The midseason finale 'Anslo Garrick' is sort of the inspiration for the template of this episode, in the sense that we've got a really great Blacklister and a case that is worthy of a two-parter," creator Jon Bokenkamp tells TVGuide.com. "The finale is big and muscular. It's so big that it's not one that we can really squeeze into one episode with all the other serialized mythology and storytelling we want to do. "
Liz and Tom's marriage seemed too good to be true, which turned out to be pretty accurate.
