Best show ever!
19 May 2017 | by rubenstrandSee all my reviews

I love the blacklist and Spader. We are hoping for a lot of seasons and we cant wait till every episode! Keep up the good work! Greatings from Norway! :) Spader fits this role like a hand in glove! Im sad about Mr kaolans death though. She was a very good cleaner and her role in the show will be missed but i hope we will see someone filling her role. And to all the ones who were in doubt that Red was her father COME ON! He risked his life many times for her. He would never do that to anyone else except maybe Dembe. We all love Dembe! He's great! Cant wait till season 5 :)

Greetings from the cold north! (norway)
