In the episode, Red (James Spader) goes on the hunt for a legendary treasure, he draws the attention of Abraham Stern (guest star Nathan Lane), a cunning manipulator who has devoted his life and the lives of many innocents to recovering the fortune that is his birthright. Meanwhile, Liz’s (Megan Boone) quest sends her down a dark path, leading her to study the methods of one of the Blacklist’s most dangerous criminals.
The “The Blacklist“series started with James Spader’s Raymond “Red” Reddington surrendering himself to the FBI with the claim that he wanted to help track down and capture some of the very criminals with whom he spent the last two decades of his life working. The first episode aired on September 23, 2013 on NBC.
Within the first two weeks, “The Blacklist” averaged a live day rating of 3.6, 10-share in adults 18-49 and 12 million viewers. With “The Voice” as its lead-in, the show quickly established itself as the top freshman drama in both demo and total viewers, and would become the number one newly scripted series launched by NBC during the 2013-14 season.
Less than a month after its premiere, NBC gave the series a full-season commitment, ordering an additional nine episodes to round out its first-season order to 22.
The drama was so hot that Netflix acquired the rights to the series in 2014 for a reported $2 million per episode.
If you missed the 100th episode I hate it for you, but that’s okay we have a behind the scenes clip below.
