2:7 Scimitar: Spader & Amir (Interviews 11/7/2014)

12:00 pm November 8, 2014
Rough transcript of interview with James Spader on Season 2 and the mid season finale [possible spoilers] Yahoo http://yhoo.it/1sjniM3
‘The stakes are higher right from the jump. Everybody, every character on the show is facing greater adversity and is in disarray and the show’s opened up… There’s a resolution of sorts but any resolution on our show opens up another door and the resolution is always going to be painful and bittersweet.
‘It started out where people were asking me wanting to know the true relationship between Elizabeth Keen and Raymond Reddington… People are still curious about that, which is good to sustain. I think it’s the burden is on us to sustain that. But I think the thing that I like is that no matter what the past is the nature of the relationship now[!] has become as compelling, and it should be.
‘I think that the journey is more important than the destination and in this case the destination is backwards, going into the past, what those characters are going through in the relationships and the nature of those relationships.’

Note Spoilers! From an interview with Amir Arison: “A lot goes down in [episodes 8 and 9]…there will be some huge, huge events that will change the direction of the show,” Amir Arison, who plays C.I.A. analyst Amar Mojtabai, explained. Arison added that the crux of the surprises coming might hinge on the relationship between Red [James Spader] and Liz [Megan Boone] saying, “It’s exciting to watch Red and Liz with their own agendas that intersect and may support or not support each other.“

Could be anything. Could be nothing. Liz, it appears, has turned to Ressler for help with Tom. Liz now knows a lot about Berlin’s operation. My guess is she will try to kill him or have Tom do it.

What are the “huge, huge events that will change the direction of the show?” Any ideas?

2:7 Scimitar: Misc Q&A (11/4/2014)

@Hanna The spot after The Voice’s super-high ratings gives a boost to new shows. They are moving The Blacklist to Thursdays because they think it has developed its own strong viewership that will follow it to the new time slot. That lets them use the coveted Monday slot for State of Affairs.

2:7 Scimitar: Is Red beyond redemption? (11/4/2014)

Something like 15 million people watch this show, either live or on DVR, so I think we need to be cautious in assuming it is only intended for those of us who work canons or timelines or scripts or Amazon Prime.

When Red told Liz in the pilot “if anyone can give me a second chance, it’s you,” I took it to mean he was looking for redemption. The story of the farmer he told to the Stewmaker laid it out:
