The Blacklist: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Blacklist: Season 2 (2014-2015)




Critic Consensus: Though The Blacklist flirts with narrative overload, it's held together by James Spader's scenery-eating performance and wildly entertaining action.

Tv Season Info

The crime drama's second series tracks officer-turned-criminal Raymond "Red" Reddington as he continues to help the FBI vanquish high-profile evildoers and criminals. Here, Red's battle with his nemesis, Berlin, progresses while he tangles with new threats. In other events, special agent Elizabeth Keen desperately tries to keep a secret from being exposed, and Red is arrested and taken to a shadowy detention facility. Among Series 2's villains and nefarious entities: a sinister doctor overseeing a black-market operation, an eco-terrorist cell seeking a deadly weapon, an abduction master and a provocative female frame-up artist.

Critic Reviews for The Blacklist: Season 2

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

I was grossed out, to say the least, and I'm sure that is just what the writers of the show were aiming for, right?

Monday's jam-packed hour belonged to two very important (and very different) women.

There's no peace for Red Reddington - only pieces of peace.

October 11, 2017 | Full Review…

Spader continues to nonchalantly demolish the scenery surrounding him with is pursed lips and blasé delivery. Truly, he is a gifted SOB even if looking at him wearing that trademark hat makes me despair.

January 9, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), remains fairly bland.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this premiere ... is that while Red was as engaging and creepy-charming as ever, the tone didn't waver when he was away from the action.
