I'm probably way off base but I missed the explanation of how she got the scar on her hand and was it supposed to look like the cut out on the box her husband had hidden under the floorboards?
She said “there was a fire” and that “Daddy gave it to me.” I think she said it happened when she was 14 – based on everything Spader said I assumed her father set her on fire. I also thought the cut out on the box looked like her scar.
I thought that it was odd that she was scrubbing her carpet while her husband was in the hospital
I thought it was odd because it clearly was an area rug, Jeez, take it to a specialty dry cleaner who can get that out. But yeah, she should have been working or at her husband’s bedside.
I’ll be disappointed if Spader turns out to be her father, too cliché. I like the idea that her father is the really big fish, hadn’t thought that far. Nor had I thought about the coincidence that Reddington left his wife/daughter, profiler had a criminal father. I hope it’s just coincidence…
Overall I liked it enough to continue watching. If they somehow manage to find every bad guy in 45 minutes each week that’ll become annoying though. Even Revenger stopped with the “revenge of the week”.
On stupid FBI agents, I could see them not worrying about the diversion since they presumably thought they’d avoided the kidnapping by intervening and taking her out of the school. However, had they looked to their LEFT, they would have seen traffic moving! No hasmat issue 20 feet away! Ok then. And ridiculous to think the bad guys could have figured out the alternate diversion so quickly (or was Spader telling the FBI about the kidnapping plot the diversion itself)
More on stupid FBI agents, yeah, there’s no way she kept her criminal father hidden from the security background checks.
Now, if they continue to be that stupid, ala the pilot of The Following (I couldn't continue to watch), I'll be out.
