Brace yourselves, since Monday night is going to be a huge one if you are a fan of “The Blacklist.” This is when you will have an opportunity to see a conclusion to the potentially-epic Anslo Garrick story, and also figure out whether or not Raymond Reddington and Elizabeth Keen are going to get out of this situation they are in.
It’s basically a way to drum up tension, since there’s no way that the show is killing off either one of their biggest stars right now. But, there are still ways to raise the stakes for the characters and the tension, including revealing more about the two’s past and any sort of potential common ground that they could share. Making them even more reliant on each other would only make the show more exciting, and increase the odds for drama at some point down the road.
But since you are probably going to get an opportunity to deal with a good bit of this drama when “The Blacklist” is actually airing on TV, why not deal with a lighter subject of conversation now? In the video below via “Extra,” you can see James Spader and Megan Boone answering all sorts of questions regarding movies, pop culture, and much more. It’s mostly a great opportunity to get to know these people better when they’re not just being all dramatic on the show itself.
After this episode, you better get ready to say goodbye to “The Blacklist” for a little while. The show is going to be off the air for several weeks thanks to the arrival of “The Sing-Off,” and we’re not going to complain about it for the simple reason that we want to ensure that there are more stories to tell in the new year (and also we are fans of “The Sing-Off”). But, we are somewhat curious as to if there are going to be 12 episodes of “The Voice” airing before the end of the May sweeps this year, or if “The Blacklist” will need to return before the singing show does. “The Voice” ran until June last spring, and we can’t see “The Blacklist” doing that.
