Did You Know?


Unlike all of the other Blacklisters who were fictional, Robert Vesco was an actual criminal. He fled the US in 1973 shortly before being indicted for financial fraud. He ended up in Cuba, where he was eventually put in prison for crimes there. His death was reported as taking place in 2007, but an associate claims Vesco faked his death and fled to Sierra Leone. If were were alive in March of 2019, Vecso would be 83 years old. Stacy Keach is six years younger than the real Vesco. See more »

A Hoot!!!
12 October 2019 | by kcjofun3See all my reviews

Of all the episodes I've ever seen of The Blacklist, this has been the funniest & lightest episode of them all!! Usually so serious & suspenseful, it was nice to have a break & have some laughs for a change. As always, James Spader was perfect. Never has such a character been as fascinating as Raymond Reddington!!
