It's nice to finally see the other side of Tom. Yes, he had to play the 'aweshucks' guy for pretty much the entire season. Even though we all suspected he was an assassin, but still in that mode, seeing this other side was well worth the wait. Now we know he can handle himself in any situation, which makes any of the scenes he has with Elizabeth Keen (as seen with them showering together) all the more creepy.....and dangerous. I'm not surprised that he ends up killing both Jolene and The Cowboy. I knew that Lance Reddick would have a short stay on the show, but I was hopeful that his character would have a longer arc. Sigh.

Agent Ressler's story was good. I wonder if he is going to feel indebted to Reddington for helping him hunt down those responsible for his girlfriends death as well as his former partners. This is definitely an interesting dynamic that they can explore that could pay off big down the road.

Meh. They dropped the ball somewhat on this one. The idea of a high school kid that is this Super Hacker had potential. Some parts of it reminding me of Wargames. But the end game of said Hacker turned out to be pretty damn weak. I thought the story was leading to something big that could change the course of the show, especially when the kid got his hands on the infamous Skeleton Key. To have it all turn out to be nothing more than some adolescent crush on a classmate that didn't even know he existed was a huge misfire. I did however like the last few minutes of the show when Elizabeth comes face to face with reality that her husband is in fact a spy and working against her.

As creepy as the Milton Bobbit story line was, it wasn't the one that I was most engaged with. Now that Elizabeth knows who and what Tom is, it's fun seeing her take the initiative to find out more about his past. Involving Red into the mix and you have a recipe for fun times. She will literally be sleeping with the enemy, all in the name of uncovering the truth. Now THAT's a dedicated women that will do anything to.....catch her man.  ;D

The episode we have been waiting all season long for happens here: The confrontation between Elizabeth and Tom now that the secret is out. But can Elizabeth make Tom talk and spill his guts? Well, it was fun to see her breaking Tom's thumb, but I knew it was going to go one way, the exact way I knew it would all season long. I knew that he would "reveal" that he was sent to protect her from Reddington. The big mystery comes at the end. What was in the safe deposit box and who or what is Elizabeth looking at in the photo? Ack!

The Kingmaker



The Kingmaker story line, although interesting, it wasn't what I wanted to spend my hour fixated on. My interest was of course in Elizabeth being able to found out why Red was in the same hospital of her father on the day he died. I figured she would get close to the the info she needed, but that it would allude her right when she reaches for it. So, I was kind of shocked that Red admitted to her that he in fact was the one that killed him. Other than that, we still don't know much about their past together. I reeeeeeeeally want them to at least give us something big in that regard as they close out Season 1. I don't want them dragging everything out for 5 seasons. Gimme some good sh*t!

Berlin



Something BIG is coming and color me more than intrigued. So Berlin is a person that Reddington fears. It's why he has been working with the FBI all along....for protection. This episode was all about Set Up leading into the Season Finale. Who, what, where, why.....and how. These questions better get an answer next week...or at least give us a few anyway, because I don't want to have to sit through all of Summer wondering what the f*ck is going on. Great scene with Elizabeth using the virus against the Doctor to get him to play ball.

Berlin: Conclusion



They were not f*cking around with the Season Finale and they really went for broke in how they handled it. It was shocking to see that they would kill off Meera. I know that no series really has an untouchable character, but it was still shocking to see them off her like that and it didn't end there. They even had Elizabeth kill off Tom, who I thought would be around for much much longer. I was thinking he would be around for as long as the series was on the air. They even sent Harold Cooper to the hospital. Remains to be seen what they do with the character next season though.

As great as this episode was, they tipped their hand off too soon and in a very easy manner as to who Berlin was. As soon as I saw that "Prison Guard" that was in the hospital bed recovering from his injuries was played by Peter Stormare, I absolutely knew 1000% that he was Berlin. The writers basically pulled a page right out of The Usual Suspects and went with the Keyser Söze angle. It wasn't a bad way to go, it's just screamed out who the players were.

The final scene does raise some interesting 'What-if's' though. Reddington has been emphatic about convincing Elizabeth that he is not her biological father and yet when he takes his shirt off, we see that he has suffered from severe burns, most likely the same fire that she remembered as a child taking the life of her father. The other interesting thing was the photo Red had in his hand....a picture of Berlin's daughter. Hmmmm....
