In the video below, you can take a look at what is an elaborate bank job orchestrated by none other than one Raymond Reddington, and what we really think matters here more than anything else about this is that it’s a reminder that no matter what happens, this is still the same man you’ve come to know over the past five years. He may not be Raymond Reddington i.e. Elizabeth Keen’s biological father, but he’s probably a far more fascinating man than the real version of the man ever was. He’s smart, he’s shrewd, he’s got stories for years, and he also understands how to study a bank more than your common-day criminal.
Why start off this season with an elaborate, action-packed sequence of events? We think that a lot of it simply stems from the producers’ interest to offer up such a reminder of Reddington the character after such a long break. The Blacklist last aired a new episode in May and that is obviously a long time to have to wait between the end of one story and the start of the next. To make up for it, clearly they wanted to give you a signature James Spader scene with all sorts of good lines included.
As for where the premiere goes from here, the obvious thing worth noting is what happened in the finale. Now that Liz Keen knows the truth about Fake Reddington, that changes quite a bit about how she sees him. With that in mind, she’s likely going to search for answers … though doing so may prove to be quite the challenge. Reddington has spent decades lying, deceiving, and carrying on this elaborate persona. He’s the master of sniffing out a plot. Are you really going to be able to get one over on him? That’s the big dramatic pull of the new season for us as a viewer, and we’re absolutely stoked for what’s going to happen next.
