And there will apparently be much crime to fight. As Reddington inform his FBI captors, Zamani was just the first name on his list. "It’s called The Blacklist," Reddington says, pausing so we can all take a drink at the mention of the show’s title. "That sounds exciting. That’s why we’re all here, of course. My wishlist. A list I’ve been cultivating for over 20 years. Politicians, mobsters, hackers, spies… I’m talking about the criminals who matter, the ones you can’t find because you don’t even know they exist. Zamani was a small fish. I’m Ahab. And if you want the whales on my list, you have to play by my rules." You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say that someone just outlined the entire premise of this whole show.

There is one last piece of business to take care of, and I’m afraid it’s slightly tedious. Keen is still trying to clean up her apartment -- good god, will somebody get her a Bed, Bath & Beyond gift certificate? -- when she finally decides just to rip out the blood-stained rug. It’s then that she notices her home’s not-very-attractive hardwood floors have a trapdoor. And within that trapdoor she finds a box containing a series of passports for her heretofore uninteresting husband, along with a huge stack of go money and an automatic weapon or two. Looks like someone has something to talk about in couples therapy next week.
