The Blacklist got its Da Vinci Code on for The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5.

The latest installment of this NBC hit was all about secret organizations and hidden maps in priceless works of art. And let's not forget about those plague-ridden bones.

The concept of terrorists using biological warfare is certainly a very real and a very scary one, but a group digging up ancient bones in order release the plague seems a little ridiculous.

Not that The Blacklist is really aiming for realism on a weekly basis, of course.

We kicked off The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 4 with a woman being denied her loan at the bank - and also with a man we later learn is Dr. Linus Creel taking notes while watching the woman go into her car.

She gets a gun from there and takes out numerous people at the bank.

Cut to Red and Naomi are fighting because he wants her to stay in hiding and she desires to go back to the family she made after leaving Red.

She talk about keeping her past a secret and how she's amazed Red has arranged to work with Liz and how her new husband has sacrificed so much for her. Red says he can put them both into hiding.

Liz then phones Red and says she wants to interrogate Naomi, but Red changes the subject to the bank killer and other seemingly innocent people who went nuts; he believes it’s all part of a mind control experiment being conducted by government agents.

Viewers were introduced to Dr. James Covington on The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 3.

This shady physician rented out organs to rich clients who wanted to bypass the donor line… but if you ran out of money, he would repossess the organ and, you know, kill you.

Paging Lizzie and Ressler!

With Tom still heavily on her mind - and also in her dreams - Agent Keen was more on edge than ever. She even turned down Red's Slurpee offer.

Of course, some of Liz’s stress centered on the team's latest addition, Samar Navabi, who has come seemingly out of nowhere. So, as you might expect, she's a part of Red's plan.

Red Reddington was on a very clear mission to kick off The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 2:

No matter what it took, no matter who he had to go through, he would save his ex-wife, Naomi. The only problem?

Mary Louise-Parker's new character was in the clutches of Berlin, a man known for removing body parts and sending them to his fedora-wearing nemesis.

So we begin things here with Red calling in his favorite cleaner, Mr. Kaplan, to do his thing after he took out a trio men in pursuit of Naomi.

Soon enough, Liz and Red's cases cross when the Monarch Douglas National Bank in Warsaw, Poland is attacked by men who look as if they're trying to avoid Ebola.

In a surprising move, The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 1, shoved Ray Reddington to the side a little bit.

James Spader's beloved character was still central to the plot, of course, but two different women really stepped to the forefront on the opening fall installment.

We open with Red in the back of a Jeep that’s flying through Cameroon. He’s been seized there by a war lord named Yabbari (spelling?), who is displeased with Red crossing his turf.

But Red offers Yabbari $3 million in exchange for the names of the bounty hunters that Berlin has hired to tail him and, with the assistance of a few Hellfire missiles, our quasi hero learns of the moniker “Lord Baltimore,” a genius data tracker.

Red promptly burns the money he promised the war lord and his associates... and we're off on an adventure!

It takes a whole lot to make Red Reddington show fear, as fans learned throughout season one of The Blacklist, NBC's first breakout scripted drama in years.

But the first promo for The Blacklist Season 2 gives us a look at James Spader's character in a slightly disturbed light, a bit out of control and very much concerned Liz. 

For what understandable reason?

"Berlin is coming," Reddington says in the following just-released trailer, which teases The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 1 and beyond.

Played by Peter Stormare, Berlin is the villain who has been coming after Red to avenge his daughter's death.

Last night's The Blacklist Season 1 Episode 10 was the second half of a two-part episode featuring Anslo Garrick, and picked up right where the first half left off.

Aram shot one of Anslo's guys who had Liz at gunpoint, and they sent out a message for help before they were captured and brought before Anslo himself.

Fans learned that Anslo was not the one after Red, but rather was hired to find him and bring him to the warehouse where another man wanted to speak to him.

It turns out that Red knows a secret and agreed to keep it under wraps, but his deal with FBI threatened this other deal, and somehow it all involves Liz.

How did it all play out on NBC's new hit drama? It's time to find out.

Just how many people will die protecting Red Reddington?

The first half of a two-part episode of The Blacklist had fans asking that question last night, as viewers met Anslo Garrick, a man with serious motivation to take him down.

How long can he go without his past burning him for good?

Also on Monday's installment of the hit NBC drama, Liz unearthed a clue that may reveal something about her own family's fate, raising the stakes even higher.

The Blacklist has received a green light for more episodes.

Following just two installments - and an average of 12 million viewers per week - the NBC drama has been renewed a full first season of 22 episodes.

The Blacklist Poster

Said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke of the James Spader-anchored drama:

“The many layers of Red Reddington and his mysterious reasons for getting into bed with the FBI seem to be fascinating to fans of this show. With great talent like James Spader and Megan Boone on board, as well our stellar executive producers and the whole cast and crew, we believe this outstanding series will continue to make NBC a big destination on Monday nights.”

Among other TV pick-ups and renewals this week:

  • Lucky 7 has been canceled.
  • The Simpsons has been picked up for Season 26.
  • Sleepy Hollow has been renewed for Season 2.

Might NBC have - gulp! - an actual hit on its hands?!?

The Blacklist premiered following the opener of The Voice season premiere last night, with Emmy winner James Spader in the lead role of Wanted criminal mastermind Red Reddington.

The twist? Immediately we see Reddington turn himself into the FBI with a promise to help them track down even more Wanted criminals.

To what end? And why does he insist on working only with Megan Boone's Elizabeth Keen? These are the main questions viewers are now asking themselves.

The concept of a mysterious, slippery, scary villain working with the good guys to help them apprehend other bad guys certainly isn't anything new.
