For decades, ex-government agent Raymond 'Red' Reddington has been one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as 'The Concierge of Crime.' Last season, he mysteriously surrendered to the FBI, but now the FBI works for him as he identifies a 'blacklist' of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. Red will help catch them all; with the caveat that Elizabeth 'Liz' Keen continues to work as his partner.

On "Prosperity Money":
Zhang: All the serial numbers (of the money) start with a 888, and none of them include the number 4. In, uh, Cantonese and most regional Chinese dialects,
the word for "four" sounds like the Chinese word for "death."
- So you're saying that they're counterfeit.
Zhang: I'm saying they're prosperity notes, worth about 5 bucks to every dollar.

On "Ghost Marriages":
When a family member dies, the surviving relatives are obligated to tend to that
person's needs in the afterlife. And if they die unmarried, they'll find themselves
alone on the other side. And unhappy spirits tend to come back and haunt
their living relatives.

Red: A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
Luther: Was that Nietzsche?
Red: No. Bruce Lee.
===
Red: : George Orwell wrote, "Those who abjure violence can do so "only because others are committing violence on their behalf." What a visionary, but, Good Lord, his books are a downer.
===
Red: : Revenge isn't a passion. It's a disease that eats at your mind and poisons your soul.
===
Red: I've always found fear to be my most valuable sense. But then again, you Kings demonstrate a propensity for having more dollars than sense.

Red always tried to start all conversations with a personal story, as this one:
Red: In Mexico, there are these fish that have colonized the freshwater caves along Sierra del Abra. They were lost. They found themselves living in complete darkness. But they didn't die. Instead, they thrived. They adapted. They lost their pigmentation, their sight, eventually even their eyes. With survival, they became hideous. I've rarely thought about what I once was. But I wonder if a ray of light were to make it into the cave, would I be able to see it? Or feel it? Would I gravitate to its warmth? And if I did, would I become less hideous?

Connolly: Maybe you're a little dinged up. But you're still at the top of your game. You perjured yourself for one of your team. I admit I didn't expect that. But I sure as hell do respect it.
Harold: Guess my principles aren't what they used to be. Neither are yours.
Connolly: That's where you're wrong, buddy. I never had any principles. That's why I'm on a rocket to the top.

Auctioneer: And now, ladies and gentlemen, one of the most exciting items of the night, a mainstay on the FBI's most wanted list, this gentleman has been on the list longer than any other criminal! A former naval intelligence officer, he possesses a wealth of classified information and presides over one of the world's most prosperous extralegal empires. You may know him as the concierge of crime. I present Raymond Reddington!

Red: People love to decry big brother the NSA, the government listening in on their most private lives, yet they all willingly go online and hand over the most intimate details of those lives - to big data.
Liz: Most people don't care that Google knows their search history.
Red: They know more than that. They know your habits, the banks you use, the pills you pop, the men or women you sleep with. Every piece of information is worth something to somebody. And in the hands of the wrong person, that could be deadly.
===
Red: I'm a sin eater. I absorb the misdeeds of others, darkening my soul to keep theirs pure. That is what I'm capable of.

This season gave viewers more thrills as the uneasy partners, Red and Keen, took down more world class villains while trying to save themselves as pawns of an age old global cabal. A few of the episodes seemed too far fetched but in fact inspired by actual events as the practice of "ghost brides" in Quon Zhang (No. 87).
