More good stuff with Tom. Guess you don't ask about Berlin. With what happened to Craig you'd think Berlin would pull Tom out. Being cuffed, they would have to assume he was helped out the window.

Once again, the Tom plot is better than the blacklist person, but I enjoyed the episode.

I hope in season two they will have more arcs covering several episodes (dedicated to a single blacklist member), rather than one per episode

Isn't the blacklist supposed to be criminals that Red wants to gets rid of? It's a list he created, of criminals the FBI doesn't know about. Seems, lately, they are bad guys that do something to get the FBI's attention and then Red is able to provide info on them. It's not like, out of the blue, Red says we need to get so-and-so taken care if. Maybe my perception isn't correct.

Or maybe Tom is Red's blacklist target.

The Undertaker had potential, especially with that crazy taxi opening sequence, but I agree Lizzie infiltrating Tom and the interrogation of the "brother" were the most interesting plot points.

I have to wonder who #1 on the Blacklist is or if they won't be touched until a later season or close to the end of the series?

My guess is that Red proclaims that he is #1 on the blacklist in the final season and what he is doing now is taking out his competition

I'm pretty sure the whole list was concocted to off Red's competition. Or we'll find out something like Liz's mom is #1 on it.

I don't know about you guys but the whole convoluted life insurance scam storyline didn't make a whole lot of sense. And I sell it for a living. Go figure.

:lol:
I don't think the writers understood it, either. Most hour-long shows have A and B story threads running in an episode and the blacklister in this case was the B plot. That black list case was all about the gruesome facial deformity.
