Haven't seen this episode yet but the Liz/Tom arguing/marriage falling apart stuff is getting really old and slowing the show down.

Well of course you didn't see this silly. The Blacklist doesn't air at 5:14pm PT.

This show is still kicking ass as far as I am concerned. It is taking the sting out of a Person of Interest being on a down year...

Pretty good episode. At first, I thought it would have been better if the Judge was a guy and more sinister. And then Red made that comment when he met the Judge ("haha of course, a woman") and that convinced me that a woman is better at being the judge. That was a good line.

The twist at the end seems promising

This episode was alright. Thought it was mostly filler until the end with Tom being fully revealed as a spy.

Personally for me, the strongest Blacklist episodes are either action-driven or dominated by Spader.

I have to say though that Red is a really good smooth talker getting Harold out of that mess with The Judge. Red did hint at the end that something pretty big is coming, so I am looking forward to that.

The whole husband subplot is what is making this show disjointed. Because it takes place in a truncated timeframe, it makes it seem as if Red is giving them things weekly and that feels way to quick for shit to go down. And basically, we are given something that's been hinted at since the first couple of episodes.

Finally, "Tom Keen" is dropping the act, or at least imminently.

Pegged Diane Wiest as the Judge from the guest credits, so not much mystery or suspense there. By the way she was respected and revered in jail, she could potentially be a recurring character.

This was a nice "setup" episode - putting things in motion for the remainder of the season. The last few eps have been a little wonky, though this one held it together pretty well.

But it all comes down to Spader. When he's not onscreen the show is forgettable...

Broyles in a cowboy hat with an iPhone equals "Badass PI"!

They probably dragged out the husband as operative reveal too long, it's the one subplot that hasn't been working this season. As I predicted much earlier in the season, I doubt the husband survives to the second season.
