"This guy killed my partner."
It just hit me how the Reddington Task Force went from being a bunch of agents hunting & trying to kill Red to a bunch of agents helping & protecting him.
And he also protects them.
I’m a tiny bit emotional about this.
so my sister got married a couple weeks ago (woohoo lots of craziness, partially why i dropped off the planet), and this is the cake I made for them. It’s the first tiered wedding cake that I’ve ever made, and while it is far from perfect, I was just so grateful that it did not collapse, I didn’t even care by the time I was done (10+ hours just assembling and decorating, weeks prior of baking & freezing actual cake). Red velvet cake with swiss meringue buttercream for icing.
Better Mr. Eisendrath, much, much better. And thank you! Now, go ahead and kill daddygate and we’ll finally be moving the story along, making it truly what it can be - one of the best television shows that’s ever aired. Last but not least, we don’t want to wait until the very end of the series - give us some romance along the way.
"So, yes, he’s a bad guy but I do believe that ultimately this is a redemption story for him and if in the end of the series he could get Liz to love him, that would be amazing."
I took that to mean that she hopefully comes to love him as a person and as a friend, not that he was really saying anything specific in terms of a romantic relationship… but I don’t know.
But at the end of the day, the whole show’s about the two of them. Liz is going to grow closer to him, and I think she will eventually love him, and I think we all want to see him win her over. But I think of that in general terms, not necessarily in a romantic light. It’s a crazy relationship: a terrorist/criminal and a federal agent truly loving each other, and that’s without even adding a romantic element into the mix.
Full ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ image reveal without EW branding.
Spader as Ultron! I can’t wait for this movie both as a Spader fan and a Marvel fan.
Dude, this seriously looks like a classy old black and white movie. I want to watch it.
See? That’s what I said. 😊
it almost has the look of that scene in Sabrina where Audrey’s singing La vie en rose … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IXdEXTeDko
taking a brief break from my hibernation to say that I totally ship this in any and all forms. this photo is freaking symbolic, the bottle to break on their newly built ship for good luck? come on! okay, that’s all. (and ps, Spader was friggin mugged of an emmy nomination. wtf emmy people?)
The more I think about it, the drawn out 'pseudo mystery’ of ‘is Red Lizzie’s father?’ makes little sense. Red answered Liz with ‘no’ quite awhile ago.
Liz is a trained FBI profiler. Both Red and Liz are in the FBI system with medical records. If somehow (impossibly) their records are not in the FBI system, then if Liz (the FBI profiler) and Cooper (the FBI team leader) and the whole friggin’ FBI (which stands for ‘Federal Bureau of *Investigation*’) had ANY real suspicion at all that Red was her father, all Liz would have to do is take one hair off Red’s coat or fedora, or one dab of saliva from his scotch tumbler, or one drop of blood from the pen she jammed in his neck, and take it to the FBI lab with a sample from herself to end the ‘pseudo mystery of paternity.’
I believe this whole daddy-thing was a conclusion some fans jumped to simply because of the 18 year age difference between Red and Liz and without one shred of credible evidence. Once this simplistic solution got rolling down the proverbial hill, there was no stopping it.
The daddy belief surprised the creators and writers, but then they began to toy with it and let it go on and on and on, because it created ‘a stir and a hook’ with the ‘is he or isn’t he’ which was then seized upon to string the ‘pseudo mystery’ along, ad nauseam, DESPITE THE LONG LIST OF EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY.
The list of evidence to the contrary includes: ALL of the music choices (just Google the lyrics of any of the songs played during key Red/Liz scenes such as ‘Wicked Game.’ All of the songs are very obvious in being about non father/daughter love. ALL the ‘big scenes and set ups’ of Red/Liz: ‘the Montreal date,’ the trading his life/coming out of the box ‘for her,’ ‘the embassy dance in a flaming red dress,’ ‘the painstakingly built music box,’ the expensive ballet Red puts on each year to maintain the beautiful memory of his BLONDE BALLERINA DAUGHTER THAT IS NOT LIZ, Red’s literal ‘burning down the house’ where his family lived. His hugely demonstrative ‘on bended knee, fedora off, sweetheart will you marry me type courtly confession’ of deep feelings and surrender to Liz in the park,’ and his ‘jailhouse confession’ to agent scary Gary that Liz ‘is worth it.’
I’m likely to hurl from nausea if this ‘red’ herring is not killed off next season. This ‘stir (and left unexamined by too many) hook' should end. It is time to 'fish or cut bait!' The ‘pseudo mystery of paternity’ is the NUMBER ONE BLACKLISTER that needs to die, and soon!
