(NBC NEWS) — So much has happened on this season of “The Blacklist” that even Red Reddington’s near execution can get lost in the shuffle.
“To be honest with you, I’d completely forgotten that was this season,” actor James Spader says.
His character narrowly escaped death after spending a large part of the season in prison.
It was also revealed that “Reddington” is also an identity assumed by a Russian agent. At least that’s his story for now.
“You have to be given the gift, and you unwrap the gift and there’s another gift inside of that. That’s what the show is,” Spader laughs.
