While he’s with Kaplan, he gets a call from Henrik who alerts him to a Warsaw bank robbery and that he knows what the attempted robbers were after. Seeming slightly off his game, Red notices that one of the men he thought he’d killed is stirring and shoots him dead.

Commentary on the pilot episode, Anslo Garrick Part 1 and Berlin: Conclusion with Jon Bokenkamp, »
Now that the TV season is over, awards season is about to begin. We’ve watched every minute of every episode of the finest shows from the past year to determine the most impressive scene from each series. It was a task as daunting as it was time-consuming (you try to pick just one “best” scene from Breaking Bad, or Game of Thrones), but we came away with our list, and we’re ready for you to disagree with the majority of it.
The clips, and our explanations, are below. Emmy voters, you’ll want to take notes. »

Our tears are barely dry from all the casualties on The Blacklist's season-one finale, but that doesn't mean we're any less excited for season two. When we last left Red, Elizabeth, and everyone else, there were many questions hanging in the balance - like if Red is really Liz's dad - and exciting new roads to explore when the show picks back up this Fall. To prepare for next season, we've rounded up what we know so far and the questions we still have from the hints Ryan Eggold (Tom Keen) gave us and what creator Jon Bokenkamp has said. Is Cooper going to survive? "The movement and flicker of life that Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) saw in that last montage is certainly hope. . . . I think that was a hopeful sign for Cooper," Bokenkamp told TV Guide. "Him surviving in any capacity would have a real emotional impact, especially on Ressler, »

This story first appeared in the June 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. "Is it downloading or uploading? What's the contemporary term for what you do these days?" James Spader wonders aloud April 18, betraying his veteran status among younger castmates. Taking note as the star brainstorms blocking options are Megan Boone, 31, who plays FBI rookie Elizabeth Keen, and Diego Klattenhoff, 35, as agent Donald Ressler. Spader, 54, portrays enigmatic fugitive Red Reddington on NBC's The Blacklist, which pits his bad guy and the FBI against his roster of even more deadly threats. Averaging a 4.9 live-

Mondays will be a barren wasteland without The Blacklist to fill them. The series was NBC’s breakout drama this year, earning it the prime after-Superbowl slot next winter. With an average of 14.8 million viewers, The Blacklist ranks fourth among scripted series overall and second in broadcast dramas for the young adults category.
The show’s whip-smart dialogue and golden ratio of satisfying answers to suspenseful questions make a solid structure to support its cast of characters. Naturally, James Spader, as the criminal mastermind-turned-fbi-informant Red Reddington is the shining center of this series. But its other regulars can all hold »

Fans of NBC’s “The Blacklist,” take note, the show’s producers are watching.
Fox was joined by stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, Harry Lennix, Parminder Nagra, Hisham Tawfiq and Amir Arison in conversation with moderator Bill Carter of the New York Times.
Boone said she was dedicating herself to social media “every waking hour” to engage with fans. “I like their reaction. I’m of service to these people. All of that is worthwhile because there are 17 million people a week enjoying an hour of their lives because I’m sacrificing all of mine.”
On the show, her character, Liz Keen, enjoys an exclusive working relationship with Spader’s Raymond “Red” Reddington. Some fans took »

The Blacklist, Season 1, Episode 16: “Mako Tanida”
Directed by Michael Watkins
Airs Mondays at 10pm Et on NBC
A major complaint often lobbed at The Blacklist is its seeming ignorance on its own progressing story and its frustrating attempt to give the audience just enough to keep them coming back for the next week, which irritates its viewers more than it actually intrigues them. Compare that to a show like Lost, a show that habitually denied its audience satisfying answers, was able to get away with that, for the most part, because the characters and the story itself were so fascinating that it almost didn’t matter that there were things no one understood, because those supplemental elements were enough to make up for it. The Blacklist doesn’t have that; it just has James Spader in the lead.

The Blacklist, Season 1, Episode 14: “Madeline Pratt”
Directed by Michael Zinberg
Written by Jim Compolongo
Airs Mondays at 10pm Et on NBC
Constant negativity and pessimism is seldom a good thing. Even in the worst that the world has to offer, there’s a sliver of something well done or praiseworthy or, at least, not outright terrible. That’s where The Blacklist comes in. It’s not a completely terrible show. If it was, writing these reviews would be much easier. The fact of the matter is its quality is incredibly nuanced and is hardly ever constant. Sometimes it’s up and others it’s agressively down. It’s a show that few would hesitate to define as “bad”, but its positive moments still abound, perhaps not plentiful, but enough for notice.
Perhaps the most interesting, and disappointingly unexplored, aspect to “Madeline Pratt” is the revelation/tease that Keen (Megan Boone »

A man in a van pulls up and tries to take the woman with him, claiming she is his sister. Unconvinced, the policeman heads to his squad car as the woman mumbles about somebody taking her baby.

The Blacklist, Season 1, Episode 12: “The Alchemist”
Written by Anthony Sparks
Directed by Vince Misiano
Airs Mondays at 10pm Et on NBC
If ever there was one word to sum up The Blacklist, that word would have to be frustrating. It’s not frustrating for the fact that it’s bad; that would be understandable and even acceptable. No, The Blacklist is frustrating because it is occasionally good and even when it’s bad, glimpses of how the show could be good shine through and that might be worse. It’s almost as if the producers are taunting its audience with a look at how things on the show could be, but probably never will.
