Did You Know?


In the scene in the art gallery, Red (played by James Spader) mentions about puppets being terrifying. The next, almost throw away, line mentions clowns being terrifying too. This is in reference to his role as Alan Shore in Boston Legal, who was scared of clowns. See more »


The cab is shown crashing into an unloaded flatbed truck and instantly exploding into a fireball. While the crash would have been severe, since the truck was unloaded and the cab's gas tank is in the rear, the explosion would not have happened, nor would the fireball. This is a common special effect used for dramatic purposes. See more »


Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Terrifying. You know this artist got his start with puppets? What is it about puppets? It's the same with clowns. I'll never forget a puppet show I saw when I was five, maybe six. Hansel and Grettle.
Christopher Maly/Craig Keen: Why are we here?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Scared me to death. But it wasn't the witch, it was the oven. Imagine, an oven puppet. Ooh. I don't think I set foot in our kitchen for a month.

amazing.. elevating
1 January 2019 | by Erdos01See all my reviews

8/10 for the story and the acting.

+1 for the soundtracks, I really loved how they choose the music so precisely. I wish I could give it a 10/10 (why not? james spader is sooooo great) but it has few moments where the acting wasn't that great... (9.5/10 maybe emmm?)

Anyways, I'm excited to find out the truth about Tom and Berlin...

Great episode. but unfortunately not the best that can be done...
