In the aftermath of Tom’s (Ryan Eggold) death on The Blacklist, Liz (Megan Boone) has plans for his killers.

A new clip from the show’s winter premiere  shows Liz talking to Raymond (James Spader) about grieving – something which she has no intention of doing.

The episode is more like a standalone film than a regular Blacklist episode, featuring none of the regular blacklisters but guest starring Famke Janssen. The show’s 100th episode airs two weeks later, on Jan. 17, guest starring Nathan Lane as the newest blacklister.

The Blacklist returns Jan. 3.

‘About Time’ may not be a holiday movie, but it’s perfect holiday viewing nonetheless

“Each December, we bust out the holiday cheer, from obnoxious Christmas music to Love Actually on a loop. I’m all about this — I usually leave my tree up until my January birthday — but I start with a different movie: About Time.

From Love Actually writer-director Richard Curtis, About Time is comparatively trimmed down, following the life of Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), the young son in a family where the men can travel through time. There are no other sci-fi frills (and probably some plot holes as a result, but who cares!), since as Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) notes, they can’t change anything outside their own lives.

Instead, we watch Tim try to make the most of his existence, not with money or glory but with happiness, plain and pure.

I’ve loved About Time probably since I saw the trailer in 2013. It was the first movie I saw in theaters after moving to New York that fall, with an old friend and diehard movie buff who was seeing it for a second time. We saw it just after Thanksgiving, which gave it a built-in holiday association for me.

As with Curtis’ previous work, what that truly stands out is the writing – specifically the dialogue, which is unique a way that reflects, you know, how people actually talk, but remains memorable in its specificity (“She wasn’t like other mums. There was something solid about her, rectangular”).

Because Tim grew up by the sea in Cornwall, much of the film occupies its own world, and the parts that take place in London are evergreen, unencumbered by technology or pop culture references.

Like Love Actually, About Time has some issues. After a lovely meet cute with Mary (Rachel McAdams), Tim loses her number and has to meet her again for the first time…………………………………………”
