Some thoughts:

I noticed Tom having nosebleed after beating up Jessi with the spidertatoo. I hope this was because spiderboy tried to escape, and gave him an elbow in his face, and not that he's infected with the cullen virus, and somehow being blackmailed into being a baddy.

A lot of things could have gone wrong with that plan on bringing
into town. Any one of the guys could have bailed out like that first security guard, and the whole plan would fail... However, after the landing is aborted, why is the pilot being so cooperative? He's afraid to die of the virus, but he's fine being blasted out of the sky? WTF?

Didn't like the whole "you're a terrorist so we might as well poison you with a deadly virus to get you to talk" scenario. So I guess Lizzy is ok with this behaviour, who cares about due process right? They could never give that man a proper trial after that stunt, he would be shipped off to a secret prison or just killed. But wasn't she pissed off that her boss beat a confession out of some other guy some episodes ok? (well to be fair, she didn't bother to report it, I guess it's ok with that kind of behaviour as long as they're guilty eh...)
As long as they're probably the bad guy, it's okay to harass, terrorize, accuse, imprison, and blackmail them. I call it the "Law & Order Effect."

Re: The Blacklist

It's really disgusting. This is the Guantanamo and Patriot Act mentality. I wouldn't mind if the whole blacklist task is arrested at the end of the series, and if Red kills Berlin, I would like seeing lizzy (and her co-workers) being hauled off to jail.

I also find it laughable the way Lizzie replied back to her interrogators "this is a stupid question". Eh, I don't really find it that stupid to ask why you didn't contact the FBI once you discovered that your husband was a spy, especially after you had him in custody. The only stupid thing here was breaking his thumbs, and letting him escape

Well, I'll just have to disagree on that one point. I like the fact that Lizzie is entering the gray area, Red is definitely rubbing off on her.

Re: The Blacklist

The stupid question was "Did you help him escape because you are a silly sentimental woman who still loves him?" or words to that effect.

(The 100 today had a teenage girl doing just exactly that. It was a horrible decision made by a pathetic child who is a discredit to her gender.)

"Why did you wait before you told us?" was three questions earlier.

Red + Gray is (still barely sometimes) Pink.

Lizzie is entering the pink?

I just checked. You're right, she does say it's stupid after they ask whether she wanted to help him escape, but in my mind it's a natural question connected to why didn't she tell anyone

FBI:
Why didn't you inform the bureau about Tom Keen after uncovering his initial deception?

Lizzy:
I wanted to investigate him

FBI:
why?

Lizzy:
so I could see how deep this rabbit whole would run

FBI:
you didn't want to help him escape?

Lizzy:
That's really a stupid question

Re: The Blacklist

Well, they killed off or disabled some of the stupid-agent-pool, so that's good. But, really, when Peter Stormare shows up, it's a given that he's going to be The Big Bad. Although, I have to say, when the cornball story ended, I half-expected him to say, "It was Keyser Söze!"

Re: The Blacklist

I really hope Red isn't Lizzie's father. Since she's adopted and he specifically asked for her, there should've been a DNA test. Is it too much to hope that Red killed her father (or at least thinks he did) in the fire, rescued her and took her to Sam?

Also, is Tom dead and Lizzie took the body... or did he get up and walk away after she left?

No, remember Red is not sure what went on at (what we assume is) his house. What he saw of the aftermath was so upsetting to him that he burned down the house.

I'm hoping the burns don't mean that Red is her father, just that he rescued her from the fire.

I'm beginning to feel that the "Your father is dead" line is just metaphorical. I hope it isn't, but it's starting to look that way.

They did a little misdirect with John Glover (AKA Lionel Luther) on the previous episode. I thought for sure he would be the big bad until I saw he was just a nutty scientist. But yeah, there's no way Peter Stormare is just going to be a lowly handless redshirt once he shows up.
