Did You Know?


The episode starts with "God's Gonna Cut You Down", a traditional folk song, sung here by Johnny Cash, from his posthumous 2006 album "American V: A Hundred Highways". Before the closing credits we hear "Rise Up" by Andra Day, from her 2015 album "Cheers To The Fall." See more »


Liz is absolved of all federal charges except for ganking the AG, for which she is given probation. No mention is made of her shooting the local law enforcement officer. It could and would be tried under state law, where the corrupt federal government could not influence the charges being filed. See more »


Harold Cooper: That's it? That's your plan? You want to abduct the Director of Clandestine Services?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Yes.

Great episode
26 January 2016 | by gjenevieveSee all my reviews

I was happy to see that some of the story lines were finally being wrapped up. We have been on the edge of our seats for quite a while now trying to see how they would resolve the mess with Elizabeth Keen. It was resolved in a fairly satisfying manner. How they will go forward with her character is something I am anxious to see.

They did a really good job of wrapping up a few things. It was even quite tense in a couple of spots. So intense that I found that I was holding my breath. It was a very exciting episode.

I didn't like one spot near the end. It shows something happening in another country and the whole thing just looked fake and was not at all believable. The writers failed on that.

But, overall, it was great. The very end has now left us with another mystery regarding Reddington. I am looking forward to seeing how this story line unfolds.
