Do you get to keep any kind of toe in the mothership show? And then, ideally, the show will develop its own legs and have its own identity. So she's there for the right reasons, and she's great.I mean, this sounds probably somewhat cliché, but we want to do that thing where we can introduce the show in a way that if you're not a fan of "The Blacklist," you can watch it, and if you are a fan of "The Blacklist," it will have more sort of tidbits for you that you'll recognize and things like that. Is the show sort of built for her to bring her own version of electricity in a way that "The Blacklist" was for James Spader?With the espionage aspect, how have you gotten to broaden your skill set, physically?

If we could get into that, then it's not like we'd be getting into brand-new territory, but we'd getting into a genre that I think hasn't been really explored so much recently. What's that element that keeps it firmly in the franchise? First, the question of Scottie and Tom, whether or not she's his mother -- it comes out at the beginning that she is, and we think that's the truth, and I think that may end up sticking to be the truth. But the thing that makes that -- "The Blacklist" work, and the thing that this will carry over that I really love is the thematic juxtaposition of discovering one's humanity and empathy, and connecting with other human beings and wanting relationships, and wanting love and these fundamental human principles, juxtaposed with violence and deception, and corruption and conspiracy, and power and all of that.

I imagine going to work on "The Blacklist," surrounded by great actors, must have been a little bit of a free Master Class, being paid to watch Spader play Red.
