The Blacklist will be ringing in the new year with a fresh slate.

Yes, we're talking about 2015 already because The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 8 marked the 2014 finale of this strong NBC drama.

The installment found Reddington working to find out who framed him for Berlin's daughter's death, while also investigating a bombing in the Soviet Union that killed 50 people.

After a few twists and turns, we learned that Red's associate Alan Fitch (Alan Alda) was actually behind the frame job.

Technically, Fitch used people to do his dirty work because that’s how wealthy folks roll, but let there be no doubt: he's the guilty party.

With apologies to New Girl, there was one question at the center of The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 7:


We refer to Zoe, of course, who fans have been presuming since her introduction is Red's daughter. But the NBC hit pulled tricky rabbit out of its hat this week and revealed Zoe's true identity...

... She's Berlin's daughter!

Yes, the same daughter Berlin believes Red to have killed. So. Wait. What. Huh?!? What kind of game is Red playing here?

A campfire of stuffed humans was featured on The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 6.

Ummm... happy Halloween?

Continuing its early season theme of evil organizations, this NBC drama took things to especially frightening heights on “The Mombasa Cartel,” as a despicable poacher gang was targeted by some very creepy taxidermy enthusiasts.

(As opposed to non-creeopy taxidermy enthusiasts.)

The hour also continued to soften up Red a bit, with viewers learning he apparently has a thing for protecting endangered species. Hey, Ian Somderhalder would be proud!

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.
