Did You Know?


The scene involving the "FBI executive" being kidnapped is actually plausible. In a scenario such as was shown, someone with law enforcement training would remain with the armed agents. The FBI recruits mainly lawyers, computer techs, and accountants- not people with actual law enforcement experience. See more »


At one point, agent Mojtabi tells Keen that he's just downloaded the fourth season of Doctor Who, but then goes on to state that "Tom Baker is fantastic" in it. Actor Tom Baker wasn't in the fourth series of Doctor Who. However, he was the fourth doctor. See more »


Elizabeth Keen: What was his name?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Gregory DeVry.
Elizabeth Keen: Were you close?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Gregory was a dear friend, and a brilliant grifter. He made a good living conning con men. Short of George Sanders, I can think of no one I'd rather have pretend to be me.

Seen Mission Impossible movies that weren't this good

They keep nominating Spader for best actor but he has yet to win. Maybe this episode will change a few minds?

One of the tightest scripts in the history of the series.

To really appreciate it you have to understand that the writers used a trope that has lately become common in episodic TV, they "broke" all the arcs and all the relationships, then slowly put them back together, culminating in this episode.

Wow is an understatement. Perfect episode.

Also nice to see Diego Klattenhoff back in action -- I said before, and will say again, this guy has enough charisma for his own series.
