Monday nights I go on a sometimes scary, sometimes suspenseful, always dramatic adventure.
I don’t typically welcome drama in to my life—I certainly don’t go around seeking out tense circumstances, daily see mysterious men with questionable intentions, or put myself in dangerous situations.

Reddington has serious connections and has made plenty of underground, shady deals with top criminals around the world over the years. Why does he target Liz as the one person to surrender to in the FBI, helping to catch the worst of the the worst criminals on the “blacklist”? Well, we don’t yet fully know his reasons and intentions—and that’s just part of why I love to watch the show!
