Good riddance. She's the weakest part of the show.

Had no idea that show was on that long.

My wife HATES her character SOOOO MUCH. She will be ecstatic she is leaving the show

I mean, the whole show is just an excuse to let James Spader chew scenery. 

Not like that's a bad thing.

We only watched it for red and dembe, and keen was always the worst, dumbest FBI agent ever.  The plots had holes big enough to lay a tollway throug as well.

Good. Her wigs are annoying.

They should cancel the whole thing. I watched about a season and 1/2 and quit because, as much as I enjoy watching Spader work, he was carrying the entire show. A big part of it was her weak ass acting. Just cancel the show, so that Spader can be put to work on something worthwhile with good characters/actors to play off.

Be happy you stopped then.  Her character is responsible for more pain, death and suffering than any other character because she's got the worst case of daddy issues than you'll find in an ex scientologist stripper.

I thought this season has been the worst by far because of all of the dumb decisions Liz has made over and over and over again. I was hoping she'd just get put out of her misery. Looks like I'll get my wish.

Still better than what you'd get with a practicing Scientologist stripper. At least you don't have a cult to deal with on top of everything else.

As the first season progressed, the show made less and less sense to me. Spader is amazing and the character is interesting, but the protagonist should have been Harry Lennix instead of Megan Boone. Lennix was the only actor in the cast who could actually go toe-to-toe with Spader.

By the second season I was done with it. Too much wasted potential, too little focus on the interesting characters.
 
2021-06-16 4:43:20 PM  
She wasn't in the first half of this season.  I honestly thought she'd already left the show until she finally reappeared.
 
2021-06-16 4:48:16 PM  
Very few folks are going to miss Liz.
This show *is* Spader. He carries it 100%
I don't think I would have made it past a few episodes without him.


I have not seen the last season yet - since Netflix only goes up to Season 7, but I am waiting patiently!
 
2021-06-16 4:52:43 PM  
As much as I love Spader (and Lennix) I gave up on this show a long time ago.

I walked into the room when my wife was watching the other day. That old lady is still alive??
 
2021-06-16 4:58:26 PM  
She is probably the WORST actor on TV right now. I stopped watching The Blacklist specifically because of her, it got to the point where Spader wasn't compensating enough for having to put up with her.
Can't imagine any reason why they kept her for this long.
 
2021-06-16 5:21:18 PM  
This is no surprise to anyone who's actually spent more than five seconds with Spader. Other than how long she's lasted. Yes he's as much of a dick as you can imagine. And then, add more.

No way the spotlight has anywhere else to go. Show's over, but at least the cameras are pointed in the right place.

Hey buddy, she's your wife!

No more of the Elizabeth Keen weepathon?

When they killed off Mr. Kaplan my reaction was "They kept Keen and Ressler but killed off Kaplan WTF??"

Yeah.  That was so weird.  The show used absolutely every trick in the book (including Spaceballs' capturing of her stunt double).

Spader was the best thing about "Age of Ultron"

I like the show. Why would they even continue it without the main character? Red would have no motivation.

The list of people in the entertainment industry ( I include athletes in that) who are dicks irl is very, very long.

If they have broken no laws I choose to ignore their dickishness and enjoy their work.

Red IS the main character, nobody watches the show for Keen, she won't be missed.

We're going to find out Katarina is Elizabeth's mother and Red is her father, but that Megan Boone isn't actually Elizabeth. She's just been a decoy drawing heat from the REAL Elizabeth...who the show will now focus on.

I mean, it's about as plausible as most of the twists on this show. I think we're all watching it for the Spader-fest.

Oh yeah, I forgot that was him. Despite all the heavy lifting by WandaVision trying to tell us what an important movie AoU was, it's not one I'm likely to ever rewatch.

The tribute episode from this current season for the actor that played Glen was so damn good. They did him right.

Despite its flaws, yes.  The highs are higher than the lows are low. It is funny always, and has heart when you least expect it.

Any Pie Left: We only watched it for red and dembe, and keen was always the worst, dumbest FBI agent ever.  The plots had holes big enough to lay a tollway throug as well.


Yeah, she consistently does dumb shiat, especially when she re-does some dumb thing she did in an earlier episode.

She was OK at the start, an important part of the premise, but she's getting tiring, especially this on again/off again thing where she can't decide if she trusts Red or not.
 
2021-06-16 11:08:30 PM  
Well that twist tonight was something I predicted a while ago but thought was too ambitious even for this show. But wow what an episode.

I'd love to hear more.  Spader was so perfect playing an array of late teens/early 20s douche bags in the 1980s.  So good at it in fact that I actively avoided watching anything he was in for years because he was synonymous with "insufferable asshole" in my mind.  In the 90s and beyond, he played "softer" roles and my attitude toward him became somewhat more forgiving.  I've never heard any negative stories about real-life encounters with him though, so I've always wondered if maybe I misjudged him based on his 1980s work.

If you like James Spader and police procedurals, YES. Also if you find yourself hate watching, just stop.

Wow, the Blacklist subreddit is going to go nuts about how this is the best news or the show should end

Mine too!  I just told her Liz was leaving and her response was "GOOD!  I hate her!".
