Looks pretty badass, plus Perlman as the villain is pretty sick. Looks like Die Hard at a Military base. Psyched for this.

If your padding doesn't work out, it repeats Thursday 2/5/2015 at 8 PM ET immediately before the conclusion at 9 PM ET (it's a two-parter). Keep in mind that "part 1" won't be "new" on Thursday.

FYI, if you're DVRing the show tonight, post game still isn't over. 30 minute pad should be enough. They will be going off the air pretty soon.

Really good episode. Easily the best episode of season 2. It had a very movie-like quality similar to Die Hard, especially since it was directed by Joe Carnahan. Glad they made it a 2-parter, it would have felt super rushed wrapping in only 1 hour.

Perlman was a good choice as the villain. Most of the Blacklist villains in season 2 haven't been very memorable, but Braxton worked for me.

I loved when Red busted out the shotgun and started going Rambo on Braxton's goons.

Looks like the whole deal about Lizzie's relationship with Red & why she's so important may be revealed in the next episode.

This is repeating at 7:00pm (CST) before the conclusion on Thursday at 8:00pm (CST).

I'm also curious to watch the new show Allegiance, but not so much The Skylar Spock Slap.

Agreed.

Perlman makes a great villain, and there's some nice scenery chewing between him and Spader.

I doubt it, seems like something they want to tease, but we'll see. Terrific episode, though, with the plan to take over the prison by planting inmates. I liked how they cut to the chase with the "hostage negotiation" as well.

Perlman was good in this episode as a counterpart to Red. Do I think they would have authorized the security code so easily by an assistant FBI director? No, not in matters of national security. The entire location would have been bombed out of existence as a black site.

I thought it was cool that Red quoted Bruce Lee.
