And that sets the stage for the beginning of Season 8, set to debut on NBC on Friday, November 13 at 8:00 P.M. My understanding is that because last season was cut short because of the pandemic, Season 8 will begin with the unseen/unused ideas from last year - as the half live-action, half animated ep we got as a finale was never intended to be the Season 7 finale. That alone has me intrigued enough to see how this one will start off and if we will be able to discern just where they had originally intended to end. One of the biggest unanswered questions, aside from Red' s true identity, is the fate of Dom with the passing of Brian Dennehy. It will have to be dealt with at some point and I for one, sincerely hope that they don't just simply recast the character. I have never been big on that and it would not serve either the character or the actor who brought him to life any justice. So we shall see. Hope to see some familiar faces in here once the show gets underway.
