Episode Summary


Madeline Pratt is at the heart of a national nuclear security threat. She wants the information and double crosses Raymond "Red" Reddington and Elizabeth Keen by having them act as a distraction for her theft. This action puts Red and Liz in the real possibility of having the Syrians capture them on foreign soil. On the home front Tom Keen is working towards the looming adoption. At "The Post Office" Agent Harold Cooper is still looking into the Diane Fowler disappearance, which Special Agent Walter Gary Martin is stonewalling very effectively saying the orders "came from the top."

  • Liz is being selfish.

    I'm not Toms biggest fan, in fact I can't stand the guy, but he's right on this one and I feel sorry for him. Liz is being selfish to everyone involved by changing her mind at the last minute. They've been planning for this baby for over a year and if she had had a baby in the usual way she couldn't back out at the last minute, so just because she's not actually giving birth she shouldn't suddenly change her mind now, like she was buying a puppy.moreless
  • Another interesting one.

    A really good episode with an interesting case - there were many twists and turns throughout and it all made for an interestin storyline.

    With each passing week, Red appears to be worse than the so-called criminals he is helping to catch. I really don't know what he's up to, but he is relentless and it will be interesting to see where it goes.

    Overall, a great hour.
  • Resemblance?

    Is it just me, or does the portrait of the woman referred to by Reddington as 'unattractive' look strangely like Lady Edith Grantham in 'Downton Abbey'?
  • Slow and Steady...

    Another solid episode with a minor advances on the main plot as to how Liz is linked to Red and some tidbits about the past of both main characters...

    but really, i'm starting to hate Liz... I feel for Tom... Divorce her already and get someone more deserving or bust out your "real" character which Red has been continually hinting...
  • Fort Totten

    The location of the showdown of the FBI and the Russians in this episode of Blacklist looked very familiar. It was Fort Totten which was used to film the season finale of White Collar "Diamond Exchange"

    Don't you love it how Red always changes the subject so he doesn't have to lie or tell the truth.
