‘The Blacklist’ episode 21 video: An intense James Spader – Megan Boone ‘Berlin’ peek

The Blacklist logo any seasonWhen the next new episode of “The Blacklist” (entitled “Berlin”) airs on Monday night, let’s just say that you are going to learn quite a bit. The latest new promo guarantees that.

The first thing to keep stock in? That as it turns out Berlin is not so much a place as it is a person … and a particularly wicked one, at that. Regardless of why Berlin is, as in whether we have seen them before on the show or not, the real thing to take stock in is that this is one of the most notorious people to be seen on the show to date. They are connected to almost everything, whether it be Tom Keen, the blacklist itself, and of course Raymond Reddington. We saw this a little earlier this season with Anslo Garrick, and this is further proof that for almost every Big Bad on a TV show, there is always a Bigger Bad hiding somewhere out there.

Megan Boone and James Spader will have opportunities to act their faces off in these final episodes, and hopefully, we’ll have a great cliffhanger in the process for a second season. One of the nice luxuries that we are sure that these two were afforded while doing this season was the confidence that there was a very early renewal, and there was never a reason for them to really worry about this episode being a series finale.

Season 2 of “The Blacklist” will be back in the fall, and after watching the ratings trajectory of the spring, it will be interesting to see if it actually passes “The Voice” as the #1 show on Mondays.
