Yes and maybe. We're still not sure if Red is her dad.

I'm starting to lean towards Red not being her dad but I have no idea what the connection would be then. That show is so good and James Spader is an awesome actor!

I watched the show for the first time Monday night. I don't get the appeal. It was VERY cheesy. I plan on giving it a few more episodes because I have heard such good things. I want to like it because I like James Spader. I hope it was just my mood.

Dad, yes. Mom, yes. More pieces? Coming soon.
I think her ex is the guy watching her, but I think he is protecting, not hunting.

I thought the x was killed? I don't either want to see anyone in pieces and I think the guy playing the captor is a cheezy villain as well.I can't believe he didn't get killed by the guy in the barcolounger as trigger happy as the rest of them were. It's getting to be a bit reaching. What an actor though, he is excellent in a lead role.

You really need to go back and watch the first season. I don't think it would make a lot of sense if I hadn't seen it last year. It's a very intriguing show. Even though each week is a new criminal or whatever, it's all tied togather.

Coffee, I felt that way when I first started watching too but I got sucked in by Spader. He is just one of those actors that makes you believe in his character no matter what.

And who doesnt want to be Red!?!? Educated, wealthy, cultured, and almost totally remiss of "give-a-sh#t". laugh

You know, BB, I didn't get that remiss part at all.
He cares...a lot.
He just doesn't believe in the justice system, ie The Law, and rightly so, imho.
So, he administers justice in the true sense of the word and fights for it too.

Thats why the "almost". He only cares about specific things (or people). Anything outside that sphere is subject to his justice. I guess its more that he is blissfully free of concern of consequence or opinion.

I still disagree because I think he's acutely aware and concerned about consequence and he sure as he// has an opinion.

Wasn't there a show last year where he helped derail a cataclysmic event?
Actually, isn't the blacklist a list of master criminals which is why Red is working with the FBI rather than a local police force?

While the original pretense was that Red was trading time by working for the FBI, I'm beginning to believe that he's been rehabilitated and 'made human'. And that's the subliminal angle that Spader works so well to suck viewers in. You're just not sure if he's a really bad guy with a soft spot or a changed guy keeping up a fašade of evil.

Or a bad guy with an ax to grind and using the FBI to spin the grinding wheel.

He's such a complex character, I think it will be a long time until we find his true motivation. This is one of my top 5 favorite shows!

Oh he is concerned with his own opinion, just no one else's (except his daughters)
And he definitely has helped to thwart bad guys and stop horrible things from happening, but almost always to serve his own purpose. I simply mean that he is unconcerned with the mores or judgement of society. And yes, I think he cares a bit more than he lets on, but it is still on his terms.

Great show, yes I watched. No, I don't think Red is going to end up being Lizzy's father. I think there will be some twist. This particular episode was a little bit over the top, but the series as a whole is fantastic.

I'm so mad. NCIS:Los Angeles recorded last night instead of Blacklist. Needless to say I've rectified that situation. Are Blacklist episodes online?

Should be. If you have satellite and the On Demand feature you might be able to get it there.

It's probably on the NBC website. I should go back and watch it again - it was soooo confusing.

Did anyone ever notice if the wife was actually missing a finger? I wondered if it really was hers or if it was some other "stiffs." No pun intended. Oh wait, yes it was!

Near the end of the show, I think I saw a bandage on her hand. It all went by so quickly - that's why I need to watch it again. I really don't like the way they edit.

She had a bandage on her hand where her finger would be when she came into the room to throw the lamp and cord through the window.

I missed that. It's one show that I shouldn't try to multi-task during. I miss things.
