The mid-season premiere opens with Reddington being arrested by the CIA as The Who’s “Magic Bus” plays. But of course, nothing is as it seems as the show introduces us to Luther Braxton (Ron Perlman), a high stakes thief incarcerated at a CIA black site – whom Reddington is trying to get to (by getting arrested).
All par for the course for The Blacklist but this time, the plot gets into the whole mystery of Reddington’s connection with Elizabeth Keen. Finally! Of begins to as we can expect that the rest of this season will devote time and effort to revealing the deep secrets that underpin the series. Or be a massive cock tease. We shall see!
