Plot / Description

This is a promo for the Fall 2013 NBC drama series, 'The Blacklist', starring James Spader, Megan Boone, Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold. 'The Blacklist' is the story of ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) who, for the past several decades, has been one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives. Now that "Red" has surrendered himself to the FBI, he wants to make a deal: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth "Liz" Keen, an FBI pro?ler fresh out of Quantico. What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins.

Must be good to be home again, sir. 
Oh, we'll see about that. Good afternoon. I'm here to see Assistant Director Howard Cooper. Tell him it's Raymond Reddington. 
It really is him. 
You must have many questions. So let's begin with the most important one. Why I'm here. One man, his name is Ranko Zimani. You want him. I want him. So let's say our interests are aligned. From this point forward, there's one very important rule. I speak only with Elizabeth Keen. 
Who the hell's Elizabeth Keen? 
Agent Keen. Donald Ressler. I need you to come with me right away.  
So, can you tell us what's going on? 
Nothing. I have no history with Reddington.  
They tell me today is your first day as a profiler. Congratulations.  
Agent Keen, what a pleasure. 
Well, I'm here. Why involve me, I'm nobody, there's nothing special about me. 
Oh, I think you're very special. I'm gonna make you famous, Lizzie. Within the hour, Ranko Zimani will abduct the daughter of U.S. General Daniel Riker. 
Don't be scared, I just want you to come with me. Do you want to call your daddy? 
Yeah, I want to tell him I'm OK. 
And I'm supposed to believe you? 
Of course not. I'm a criminal. 
I told you Zimani would take the girl. This is in your hands now. 
I need your help. 
How 'bout a trade? You won't find the girl until you learn to look at this differently.  
How should I look at this? 
Shall I show you? Make it personal. What does he desperately want? 
He wants revenge. Where is Zimani? 
If I tell you, you have to give me something in return.  
You think we're gonna put you up at the Sheraton? 
The Sheraton's not my scene.  
You figure out my plan to take the General's daughter. What else do you know? 
It's gonna be OK. 
Why the hell was he in my house? 
Calm down. Tell me what happened? 
Don't play stupid. 
Your husband doesn't matter. Zimani did you a favor. 
Now, you tell me how I find Zimani and make this right or I let you die, right here. 
He's gone. 
He's on the move. Heading westbound. 
Zimani wants more than the General's daughter. 
Where are you? 
My friend. He's on his way. 
Can you stop the bomb? 
You're a brave girl. 
Wait! What are you doing? 
We're gonna make a great team. 
Well this was fun. Let's do it again. Understand Zimani was only the first.  
First what? 
Name. On the list. 
What list? 
The list I've been cultivating for over 20 years. I'm talking about the criminals who matter. The ones you can't find because you don't even know they exist. It's called the Blacklist, that sounds exciting. 
(Lyrics) Remember what the people said 
Remember what the people said 
When it's said and done 
Let it go 
(Lyrics) I will keep quiet 
You won't even know I'm here 
You'll never know what hit you 
(Lyrics) Just another day in the city life 
Just another day where we live or die 
We're all prayin' through the smoke filled sky
