  1. The writers almost killed the series with the “Tom Keene” character. So glad they killed him off. An episode without Spader is just another tv show. Although the Elizabeth Keene Character is not quite so obnoxious as Tom I was getting a little tired of the story arc. Good writers should be able to come up with enough stories for at least 1 more season but I would hope for more. Will be interesting to see who Reddington’s main contact will be with Elizabeth gone. One of only 3 network shows I watch. Thank God for on demand movies!

  2. I think it was fake death of liz she will come back in next season with a new face. Who agree with this??

  3. Not answering the question that this series has been about was a MAJOR mistake, and Jon Bokencamp’s departure the day after the finale aired tells me he was NOT in agreement with killing off Liz. Season 9 will be 10-13 episodes at most.
