Check out three sneak peeks from The Blacklist season premiere.
"It must be good to be home again, sir."
Raymond Reddington walks nonchalantly into the FBI asks to speak to the Assistant Director, goes to the center of the room, and takes off his jacket and hat. When she realizes who he is alarms go off and guns on drawn on him as he kneels and puts his hands on his head.
It's just a mesmerizing scene to watch. It's an entrance and an introduction to a character that will be long remembered. James Spader is perfectly cast as the mysterious, criminal mastermind, Raymond "Red" Reddington.
When Red shows up at the FBI he demands to speak to Elizabeth Keen. It's her first day on the job at the FBI, but he won't talk to anyone else. She's put on the first case that he brings to the FBI.
