General Ludd



A triple play of actor's that I just don't see all that much of anymore. Andrew Dice Clay was very unexpected with him playing a Plastic Surgeon. Justin Kirk is another actor that I never see. More to the point, I've never seen him in anything other than Weeds and apparently he has been around for awhile. The last actor is William Sadler, who plays Keen's adoptive father. It was the relationship that he and Red that I found most intriguing. Obviously they have a lot of history together and it's mentioned that there is a huge secret that Sadler wants to tell his daughter, but Red won't allow it. Even though it's implied (kinda) that he is her biological father, I'm starting to think the writers will do a swerve somewhere down the road.

Anslo Garrick



Man, this episode blew by incredibly fast! Very riveting 45 minutes, but it's the last 5 minutes that had me holding my breath when Garrick starts executing people....or more specifically those that Red holds dear to him. I was kind of expecting this to be wrapped up within the episode. Well, it's definitely a two-parter for sure. So, who is going to save the day? Keen or the IT Guy? My money is on the IT Guy. The idea of someone with no "combat training" beyond paper targets taking down a heavily armed squad is very appealing.

Anslo Garrick, Part 2



Even though it was clear from last weeks episode that it was a Two-Part arc, I was certain that it was the mid-season finale given how it ended. But Part 2 is definitely the mid-season fianle for the same reasons. Well, I think. Anyway, Red is now in the wind, having just killed and escaped the clutches of Anslo. But it was seeing Alan Alda appearing as someone that is clearly higher up in the food chain as someone to fear. Exactly who he is and what the big "secret" is that he is concerned about keeping a secret still has yet to be revealed. I like the idea of Alda joining the cast as I know he will bring his A-Game. The ending was interesting in that Keen ask Red if he is in fact her real father. His answer was 'No'. But I think he still is and he only said 'no' to "protect" her from the likes of Alda's character. Red's parting words about her husband confirmed what I already knew......that he can't be trusted.

So, who is the Mole within the agency? Hmmmmmm........

The Good Samaritan Killer



Welcome back Blacklist! The wait for the shows return was unbearably long. The upside is that the wait was worth the wait. Awesome episode that saw Red tracking down and eliminating those behind the attempt on his life from the previous episode. It was almost kind of comical in his ability to reach everyone as fast as he did. That is a man that knows how to get things done. What I didn't see coming was that his "right hand" man servant was part of it. I think they should have developed his character a bit more before having him knocked off. It would have given his death more meaning. Anyway, also cool to see Frank Whaley pop up as the Good Samaritan. His story arc clearly took a page from Norman Bates / Psycho. Too bad he got whacked by Keen. So, one and done.

The Alchemist



Biggest thing that happened in this one was the final scene where Red was waiting at night at home for Meera (Parminder Nagra) to be confronted as the 2nd mole. Was there any doubt that she was the other mole? I knew from the beginning. It's really about process of elimination. Because the 'recurring' cast is so small, she was really the only one that could possibly be the mole. So, the revelation at the end really wasn't all the surprising. What was surprising and still has me stumped is who exactly is the girl that is putting the movies on Tom. She has a dossier on him, but who is she working for exactly? I most likely missed a scene that would have given me the info needed. My guess is that she's working for Red, who is trying to dig up dirt up on him because 'he's not who he claims to be'.

The Cyprus Agency



Two things working in this episode. One was the Cyprus Agency which was basically a front for kidnapping women that met a certain criteria for potential mothers to be. They are held captive while the CEO/Doctor impregnates them and they brings them to term to sell the babies through the adoption agency. Sick. Makes you take a hard look at the stuff that goes on in the real world and it's not something I like. Very sad this is the world we live in.

The other thing working in this episode was Red's pursuit in sniffing out the mole. With the help of Meera, all roads lead back to Diane Fowler, the United States Assistant Attorney General / Criminal Division. She is no longer of this world. Don't f*ck with Red!!!! Her last words to him were "....I know what happened that night, to your family". So, they plant a very BIG seed that will most likely drive the rest of the season.

Madeline Pratt



That was a long ass hiatus, but it was worth the wait just to see James Spader do his thing here. When Red is telling his sob story to  Madeline Pratt, I knew that it was a set up just so that he could get the information he needed from her. Even though there was no surprise in what was happening, it still made me grin at how devious and manipulative Red is.

The Judge



I love how Red can swoop in at the last second, confront the Villain of the Week, say a few words and get them to surrender themselves to authorities. Reddington rules! Spader rules!! I'm glad they didn't kill off Dianne Wiest. I really want to see her character come back. Not sure how or what function it may serve, but I get the feeling that the writers are thinking along the same lines by having her sent to prison and can revisit her down the road. The biggest bombshell for this episode is the final scene when we finally get proof that Elizabeth Keen's husband Tom is in fact a Spy and the she is in fact the Target. This is getting gooooooood!
