>>> all right. if you're a fan of the nbc series "the blacklist," you've been dying to find out the real deal about this tom keene character.
>> all right. so we thought he was just a fourth grade teacher married to the main character . agent lizzy keene, but recently revealed tom has a dark secret .
>> wow. as you may have suspected, he's not really a quiet, supportive husband, but an agent. and lizzy is his target.
>> do you have a second?
>> yeah. what's up?
>> i'm following up leads on julian's case and came across an address.
>> what's the address?
>> 1896 la vista street.
>> never heard of it.
>> it's not her home address, maybe her fiancee's.
>> i think you're cutting out. hey, can you hear me?
>> okay. got to go.
>> every husband does that. okay. this dark now assassin was an agent. did you have any idea this was coming?
>> don't give me the wrong look because, you know, i've been training, you know. no, i had some idea this was going to happen. but, of course, i didn't know the exact way that it was going to go. and it's still sort of taking shape now.
>> this is a show that has no problem killing people off.
>> does that make you worried at all?
>> sure. certainly it does. but i think the exciting thing about tom is there's a lot more to go. i mean, there's so many secrets on the show and there's a lot we're going to answer at the end of this season. those answers, of course --
>> that's a cliffhanger.
>> questions and further avenues to go down.
>> this show has exploded. i mean, from the first episode, a lot of us said, oh, my gosh, it's great, we talked about it the morning after. a lot of it is your relationship with elizabeth keene. a lot of it is james spader , as well. what makes it so compelling?
>> you introduce everything on the surface and meet all these characters and go, oh, wait, he has a secret and she's lying, and all of those sort of layers we can continue to pull back which is what i think is interesting about it.
>> it's all about secrets. what's one thing we don't know about you?
>> goodness. i'm wearing women's underwear.
>> prove it.
>> can we cut that out? it's a brazilian thong . i got it on --
>> the dental floss thing?
>> we're going to a whole new level thing.
>> can we dim the lights now?
>> oh, wow. oh, i like this.
>> who is tom keene ?
>> oh, i can't, i can't. don't --
>> does tom love lizzy ?
>> i can't answer that.
>> who does tom keene work for? are tom's glasses even prescription?
>> they are --
>> can tom keene whistle?
>> i cannot whistle.
>> can ryan eggold whistle?
>> i cannot whistle.
>> he found his weakness.
>> cut to the core of me.
>> catch "the blacklist" tonight on nbc.
