ChrtnfedktrTydyidtoufr. White. Bdfjtth. Did you know I love Red in white? But I prefer the suit

So Liz gave them a case. Wow. She is naming blacklisters. I just knew Red had set her up and that the Execust would be connected to his case. I believe I was wrong. I can't stand Liz. And now I wonder about Jennifer. I thought she was manipulating Liz. But she genuinely didn't want he guy to commit suicide. Still don't trust her though.

So I think Ressler keeps mentioning Red to get a reaction from Liz. I believe he suspected her from the beginning. Now he is in the same spot as he was in with Prescott. Come on Ressler. Don't trust Liz. I want him to go tell Red so badly. I know we probably want get that. But I want it

Loved Red in therapy. The psychiatrist gave a more accurate description of him than Liz ever did. She immediately knew he wasn't this person he pretends to be. There's a whole part hidden. He saved her life. Love it. And the courtroom scenes!

Dembe is going to have a blacklister. Omg. I can't wait. I hope this episode is about him.

Liz should have realized something was off when Red didn't give her a case. He's on to you, girl.

He realized in the final scene last week. May not know for sure. But he knows.

Okay, guys... I'm soooo damn mad right now! I need to vent at first! My wholeheartedly dislike of Ressler is back. Liz lied to them, not only about the blacklister but gave them a wrong lead and then is all whiny and puppy eyes and he is keeping his mouth shut???? I can't believe it!

And Liz... Even more unbelievable and blaming all her actions on Red. It's a joke, seriously. I really don't know if I should laugh or cry. As if all of this was his fault. It is her that changed like that and not because of Red. So he made her kill the AG? Or how am I supposed to see it now? He made her do all the bad thing she did? I can't believe it. Enough is enough and I can't stand it anymore.

I'm still suspicious about Jennifer as well. I was surprised, too but her reaction but I still don't trust her. And why the hell is she afraid he would do the same to her, that she'd become like Liz? Such a crap because she never wanted contact with him and since she is not his daughter, I hope he'll leave her be as well. What a bullsh**!!!

The therapist was fantastic! I loved her so much and her scenes with Red were fantastic. I would have wished for more but sadly the evaluation is over. She knew right away that he is an impostor (congrats to our psycho girl on the task force aka Liz ) She didn't figure that out for year when this woman needed two sessions

Who is this General Shiro? I can't wait to find out.

And damn, that guy didn't see Red at all like I said but man, I never thought of a nurse needed for what the doctor did I hope she's not alive anymore

Good eppy..

I'm sorry but seriously WTH Liz, seriously!!. Even Jennifer is questioning what you are doing and that is saying something. She keeps chopping and changing from one thing to another, one week she is all 'I should back out' and 'I'm having second thoughts' and the following week she is all guns blazing so to speak!

and Ressler, he is being an idiot too, can't he think for himself

Really liked the scenes with Red and the therapist, she figured him out straight away

Looking forward to the trial

I thought the episode really good as well, just to clarify

Yeah, Liz is just unbelievable and I didn't even consider her forth and back about what she is doing... It's such extremes so that I'm wondering myself if she is mentally healthy or if she is going nuts already.

An idiot, that's it exactly. Even more than an idiot

I wonder if Harold would want to know who in his task force betrayed the team? Will he listen to the tape.

I was seriously infuriated with Liz. She's so far down the rabbit hole of reasoning and ethics that she let the guy convince her that it doesn't matter what gets done ... as long as the ends justify the means. So now, Liz doesn't care about anything. She was playing Ressler the whole time and then tried to lie when she got caught, only to be called on it. Then when she knows she can't lie her way out of it, she turns to tears and tells Ressler she will tell him her reasons EVENTUALLY. Really?! I doubt it. For her, it didn't matter that a guy was about to kill himself so long as he gave her the name before he committed suicide. Nothing else matters, and nobody for that matter. She lied to her entire group of friends, led them on a wild goose chase, and selfishly used them (while feeling entirely justified to do so) ... but she learned that it's okay as long as she gets what SHE wants.

Oh, Liz ... I'm really NOT liking you .

This episode marked the turn of a complete 180 that has been quite the slowburn. Liz is almost completely unlikable and this has been coming for a long time. The worst part is that Red will blame himself for all of her misdeeds when its all over.

Agree Donna. And Jay I hope Red does not blame himself. Argggh

With Prescott, Red knew Ressler was in a mess and he gave them that case to make Ressler get himself out of it because he knows who Ressler is. Now Liz is just plain using him. Come on Ressler. I think he has known for a long time that Red is not as bad as he thought. He doesn't want to admit it.

Now he's going to have to deal with Liz. He just told her he doesn't like not knowing the whole story. And what does she say but trust me and I will tell you some day. Don't ever do that. Plus she let the man kill himself and told Ressler.

Interesting conversation with Cooper. I believe he would say something different if he knew it was Liz. And yes, I think he will listen to the tape. Or maybe Ressler will.

I hope Im wrong about Red blaming himself it just seems like that's the way it will go since it was always shoved down his throat.
