This show lost a lot of credibility with me tonight. They are just making it up and retconning as they go along.

Tom working for Red just does not fit. Suddenly introducing "fulcrum," whatever that is, seems like they ran out of steam and added a new plot line. I think the show is getting tired.

Agree. It made the scene outside the hospital in S1 nonexistent. It's like JJ Abrams messing with the space timeline in Star Trek.

I think I could give it up after last night. Tom worked for Berlin, but he also work for Red? Doesn't make sense. Are they going to advance that every week? If not, the Blacklister of the week isn't very interesting to me.

Of course, Red could have turned Tom before Liz captured him. Just in case.

Meh, at the last scene I was expecting Red to end Tom like he did Berlin...

Damn Fitch (sp) death.. one of those nail biting moments waiting for the bomb to explode... I'm guessing all his body got splattered with those 2kgs of explosives.

Red made it clear: Ich bin nein Berliner.

Remind us of the context. I'm only vaguely remembering this scene.

Don't remember when, but I know the fulcrum has been mentioned before.

You can get a Genie upgrade with Genie minis for free. I just did in September. then you can record up tp 5 programs at a time.

Blacklist doesn't come back until Super Bowl Sunday.

At this point it's obvious they're completely making it up as they go along with no long term plan. Having Tom working for Red and Berlin makes zero sense.

I'm as disappointed as the rest of you about the Tom/Red reveal. But ten times more disappointing is offing Alan Alda's character. He's the one television actor who can keep up with James Spader, and I would have loved to see him become a bigger part of the story, not less.

It seems like it has been forever since the last episode. I am going to have to go back and watch season 1 to remind me what has happened and where we are at.

Perhaps I misremembered.

She sure has a strong rack.
