‘The Blacklist’ season 2, episode 19 preview: Return date for Megan Boone, James Spader, cast

The Blacklist logo any seasonOne of the luxuries about “The Blacklist” having such a short season in the fall was that it left us with a cornucopia of new episodes throughout the late winter and early spring. As a matter of fact, we’ve had roughly two straight months of new episodes. This has allowed us a chance to see Liz and Tom’s relationship turn on a dime, and her and Red working together once again to take down many blacklisters. “Vanessa Cruz” tonight was complicated, but also true to the show in so many ways.

After these two months, the unfortunate news is that NBC is going to make you wait for a little while to see the homestretch of this season. The next episode is currently scheduled for Thursday, April 23, which means that you are going to be staring two straight weeks of repeats in the face until the show returns to the air.

So while you wait, our suggestion is simple: Catch up, find out who you are ‘shipping Liz with, or create some theories about where the series is going as we near the end of the road. Producers have had the luxury of knowing for some time that they are not going anywhere, and that has to be an asset for them as they plan for the future. (NBC has already renewed “The Blacklist” for a third season.)

Based on what we saw tonight, what you should be wondering is what Tom’s role on the show is going to be now, and if there is any way Liz will be willing to work with Reddington again based on what she knows about him hiring Tom.
