So.... I was right :-) The judge was "just doing his job" and trying to be a "check and balance" against government power.

BUT

The US has dissolved in to 18th Century England.... "When we say "National Security" DO NOT QUESTION US!!!!"

I don't agree he is just doing his job - although I understand that you're trying to make a political point. If he was just doing his job (now back to the TV show) - which I agree he should, he'd have asked only enough questions of the type needed to prove or disprove the government's contention of the need for National Security secrecy . The specific questions he's asking are much more detailed than needed and in many cases, way off track for answering just that question. He's definitely digging into details that don't matter to that question - but are very important if you're digging for details on Red, Lizzy, the FBI task force and Fulcrum.


In the end, I think that because he's part of the conspiracy, it will help Lizzy and the FBI out of this particular jam because he won't want the conspiracy group exposed. In fact, I believe that Lizzy recognizes all of this and, as a profiler, is playing the judge. However, it will also mean more danger and more story lines coming up.

I was just hoping that the judge wasn't part of any conspiracy, like the cop investigating Lizzy.

A regular human being caught up in the drama that is Reddington :-)

Now that I have watched this week's Blacklist, it's obvious I was mistaken in my prediction that the judge was involved with the conspiracy. He was just nosier than he should have been and more importantly, he hates what he perceives as government overstepping their authority. At the same time, his digging into classified areas without the proper clearance is not allowed either. Nor was it OK for Lizzy to divulge that classified information to an individual who is not cleared either. But, I guess all of that is somewhat expected in this show. In spite of all that, it was a good show (disbelieve suspended).

I thought from the beginning that the judge was a good man just trying to do his best. His hostility to government secrecy, especially when it uses the catchall phrase, "national security," caused him to overreach. I think he did so in good faith, however.

I liked Red's little speech to Lizzy at the end when she was watching the harbormaster's daughter.

I have a gut feeling she knows deep down he's her real Dad. I realize it's a TV show but if she's as smart as they portray her there's been too many things happen for her to figure it out. And the last show should have been a dead give away.

Although... given Red's speech there... it opens the door for it to be possible that he really isn't her father... but rather a good friend of her father, and he tried to save her father but was only able to save her... thus felt responsible for his death and her life... and then he went super-undercover as a rogue to ferret out all the bad guys responsible for what had happened there.

They can realistically go either way now, as they have it set up.

Good point,I just hope the writers don't really drag it out which ever way it does go.

Oh they are going to drag it out as long as they please. Why give us the payoff now?

Remember that Red also hand picked the man that would raise her after her "father" was killed in the fire.

It seemed to me that he was implying that he killed her father, or was responsible for his death. That's why he is looking out for her, just like Liz is helping the harbormaster's daughter. That could be what he didn't want her stepfather to reveal when Red killed him.

I learned something new in this report:

Fred has a home in Dubai. Surely he has more than one home, but this was somewhat surprising to me.

Looks like from the preview that next week is back to the procedurals. To me at this point the show is much much more interesting when Tom is on it because of the dynamics between him and Liz and Reddington.
