    Reminder that a new ep is on after the Super Bowl. Pad accordingly.

    That was some episode after the Super Bowl.

    Next episode is this Thursday (the 5th), right?

    I think there's 2 on Thursday. The one from last night and then a new one.

    I'm normally able to suspend my disbelief about the cavalier attitude that shows like the Blacklist have towards the passage of time, but something about the way it was presented in this latest episode, the conclusion to the two-parter that started after the Super Bowl, really jarred me out of my enjoyment of the show.

    Wasn't there an on-screen caption saying that the hospital the hijacked helicopter landed at was in Juneau, Alaska?

    Then Keen was apparently held somewhere, at least somewhat Washington DC-adjacent, considering the speed with which the FBI people got there from their base, right?

    And yet, the newscast that played at the end of the episode said that all of this happened in one day!!!

    Somewhere early on in the first season I got the impression that Red's wife and daughter were (supposedly, as far as the outside world knows, at least) killed back just before he "turned to the dark side" (which I still suspect of being the deepest of deep cover ops, so deep that it will reveal whether or not it really is turtles all the way down).

    As someone else around here said in a different context, the voices in my head aren't usually that specific.

    Anybody else remember anything like that?

    Getting a little tired of Keen not suspecting that she has been working with her father. She is smart. By now, she would have checked DNA and put it to bed.

    Yea, that was ridiculous. They showed them leaving the hospital in Alaska, then the waterboarding scene, and then Braxton shows up at the Doctor's house and takes her and her son. No explanation of how they got out of Alaska. I'm close to giving up on this show.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing these time jumps and amazing healing powers from surviving an explosion with bloody facial abrasions to suddenly appearing in front of an assembly of bad guys with no marks, and that the bad guys remain quiet whilst being told to notify Red of anything they learn.

    And Liz Keen is the worst cast character, IMO, yet somehow is the linchpin of the longer storyline. :confused:

    I noticed the jump too. Juneau to Washington DC in like 5 minutes. It got me REALLY confused when the psychiatrist son was kidnapped. I thought she was in Juneau.

    Speaking of time - Didn't they dispatch the F-22's from Wright-Patterson to attack the prison? And they got there in 20 minutes! I didn't know the F-22 had warp drive.

    I'm not sure she wasn't. :eek:

    I had initially thought that the prison was off the East Coast so dispatching fighters from Wright-Patterson wasn't totally out of the realm of possibility.

    But then they flew to Juneau and I thought for a little bit that the prison was off the Alaskan coast but that made no sense with the flight from Wright-Patterson.

    So if the prison was off the East Coast, Braxton flew to all the way to Juneau in a helicopter and then came back to the DC area, why?
    :confused:

    I have no idea why the writers put in that whole Juneau side trip.

    Is it possible that there's another Juneau?

    It did not just say Juneau.

    Maybe there's a Juneau, Alaska on the East Coast?

    Or maybe they use the Alias Travel Agency?

    They could have easily dispatched the F-22's from Elmendorf AFB which is in Alaska and actually has F-22's based there. According to Wikipedia there aren't any F-22's based at Wright-Patt.

    Does this show employ any technical advisors? I guess not. ;)

    F-22's under the control of the Director of the US National Clandestine Service used for the extra-judicial assassinations of US and foreign citizens aren't listed on Wikipedia.
