NBC’s The Blacklist has officially moved to its new night and time and will be paired up with their newest drama Allegiance.

Last week’s episode was full of chaos and torture and a new villain on the list by the name of Luther Braxton (Ron Perlman), who took over a top-secret detention facility in order to gain access to certain files regarding our country’s national security.

With the team stuck inside and Red unconscious after the boiler room explosion, Cooper has to go head-to-head with the CIA in order to get his people out.

The Blacklist- Season 2

We finally know a little bit more about what the hell the Fulcrum is! According to Red, it’s a “blackmail file; proof of the existence of an extraordinarily powerful clandestine organization. If their activities were made public, some of the most powerful and influential men would go to prison or be executed.” Whoa! That’s one serious blackmail file. Apparently, the way to find the Fulcrum is located inside the detention facility, which is why Red surrendered himself in the first place, so he could stop Braxton from breaking out. The most interesting piece of the puzzle though, is that Braxton can’t get to the Fulcrum without Liz. We’re still figuring that part out.

The Blacklist airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The Synopsis for “Luther Braxton: Conclusion”:

As chaos ensues at the Factory leaving the fate of Red (James Spader) and the task force unknown, FBI boss Cooper (Harry Lennix) struggles to rescue his team from the detention facility. Meanwhile, it’s a race against time to stop Luther Braxton (guest star Ron Perlman) from attaining confidential information. Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Amir Arison and Mozhan Marno also star. David Strathairn and Janel Maloney guest star.

You guys, it’s finally February! Yes, today is Super Bowl Sunday, but it also means the return of NBC’s The Blacklist. There were so many opened ended questions from the midseason finale that I’m hoping are explained, or at least some of them in tonight’s episode. Also, I hope that the second half of the season is a little better than the first and not so predictable.

Anyways, I digress. The midseason premiere returns after months of waiting to find out where Tom goes from here, what’s his relationship with Red and what the hell is The Fulcrum?! Also, why does everyone keep asking Red if he has it? Apparently he has a lot of things. There are so many other questions, but those are pretty much my top questions.

Now, let’s talk about Ron Perlman for a minute, shall we? Tonight’s episode marks his debut as the shows newest villain, Luther Braxton. According to TV Guide, Braxton is a meticulous thief who plans his international heists over the course of several months or years and ends up crossing paths with Reddington and the FBI team.
