Meanwhile, Red leads Liz and the FBI to the most strange and dangerous criminals yet and eliminating rivals in the process. All throughout, Liz and Red engage in an uneasy cat-and-mouse game in which lines are crossed and the truth will be revealed.

Like all prior seasons, choke full of excellent quotes. Example is on VSL (P1 of 2):

Their belief is based on a Judeo-Christian tradition of justice. Mine is more algebraic. There's a constant and a variable. The constant is the work you do.
It has value, and it will be compromised with you behind bars. The variable is what economists call the VSL the value of statistical life. In this case, the value of your life versus the value of the life of the witness whose testimony will put you behind bars. Okay, I can make it worth their while not to say anything. The authorities have identified her. She was walking home that night and saw what she saw. She's made a preliminary statement. At this point, a bribe has a low probability of success. I'm afraid my equation is premised on a more permanent solution. Killing her. If her VSL is lower than yours.
-You can't put a price on a life.
Nearly every department in our government has a VSL.

VSL (P2 of 2):

The EPA's is $10 million. The FDA's is $7.9 million. The Department of Transportation is $6.4 million. The annoying beep that goes off when the people in the front seat don't put their seatbelts on? Ever wonder why there was no beep for the people sitting in the back? It would cost the auto industry $325 million a year and save 44 lives. 325 divided by 44 is 7.4 meaning that the value of each life that would be saved is $7.4 million. But since DOT values each life at only $6.
4 million, no beeps in the back. Those are statistical models to determine the cost of a life, not to decide the value of one life over another. Organ recipient protocols. What a teacher makes versus a hedge fund manager. We make comparative values all the time, and I've done it for you and Miss Carter.
A bus driver versus a titan of industry. A volunteer at a local boys' club versus a man who employs 12,000 people.

If people weren't out to get me, I would have been more successful.
===
As Mark Twain said, there's three kinds of lies lies, damned lies, and statistics.
===
According to the CDC, accidents are the leading cause of death among women 25 to 34. It only accounts for 18% of deaths among black women. But at 36. 9%, it's number one with a bullet among white women like yourself. Tragic slip and fall coming out of the shower, and, sadly, you'll be just one more statistic in the CDC's annual report on health equity.
===
I don't understand why I'm there in court. I don't know what I've done wrong.
- You don't?
Not really, no.
-Have you killed people?
Polluting rivers kills people, good people killed for profit. Raising the speed limit kills people to save time. The death penalty. Unjust wars have killed so many people. Whatever I've done, I've done because I thought it was just.
===
They got him on a cocktail of anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers that have most men counting worms.

Everyone's favorite superpower is flying like a bird. I'd prefer mind control. Although, at this point, maybe just X-ray vision.
===

Hmm! I've turned over a new leaf. Spinach. Steamed. No butter, no oil, no salt. And very, very little taste.
-Spinach. Tai Chi. Who are you and what have you done with Raymond Reddington?
===
The arms business is like Ring Around the Rosie compared with this business you call show. Hand to God, I'd rather my daughter marry Arafat than a network or studio executive. At least he paid you the courtesy of lying to your face.
===
In the short run, justice always loses to politics.
===
I'm not saying I'm amazing, but sometimes I'm distinctly above average.
===
There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking at the video.
===
You know it's awful, but people do tend to associate a thick neck with a low IQ.
===
Changing a man's face is one thing. Changing his predilections? Quite another.

Remember when classified documents were classified documents, Harold? Typewritten on onion skin, mimeographed, and stamped "Top Secret" just like in the spy movies? That was fun.
===
When I kill a man, I don't pretend I care how he feels... It's disrespectful, so stop coddling me.
===
You have in your life the only thing that matters. People who love you. People you can depend on. People who will always tell you the truth.
===
Do you two want to get a room, or rob a bank?
===
You want me to lie in court?
-Yes. It plays to your strengths.
===
Life is often surprising, and death is even more so.
===
We're living in a time when truth has been so diminished in value that even those at the top of government are quite comfortable with truth being whatever they can convince people to believe. That is what I find wildly unacceptable.
===
I object to everything about him starting with his tie and ending with his general demeanor.

I need more time.
-Clearly, but you don't have it.
===

"The Princip Initiative."
-What's that? Princip?
Gavrilo Princip, the Bosnian Serb who assassinated Archduke Ferdinand of Austria. That single act set into motion the chain of events that ignited the First World War.
===
I guess I'll ask the judge to just let me lie down in traffic.
===
Ink blots? I must warn you, they all look like genitalia to me.
===
You're masquerading. Leading a double life pretending to be someone you're not. If you're divorced from social norms, it's because you're divorced from a side of yourself I can't see because you're terrified of letting other people see it. Why? I don't know. But whatever pathologies you have, I think it can be traced to the fact that while most people see you as an iconic bad guy? You're really just an imposter.
===
I get angry sometimes?
-No. I get even.
===
There are no accidents around me, unless it's on purpose.

They say what does kill you makes you stronger.
===
Sex and treasure. People will betray you for both.
===
How do you feel?
-I feel like I'd rather be home with my cat.
===
The truth always comes out, and someone always gets hurt.
===
I realized I don't care for who you were. I care for who you are. And that's the only thing that matters.
===
You can spill your guts or your brain. I'm good either way.
===
Flying is life. Falling is death.
===
I'm married to a loser, Henry. It's a fate worse than death.
===
Harold, sit. Take a breath. Smoke a cigar. Read some Calvin & Hobbes. Whatever you do to relax do it before you have an aneurysm.
===
Only time will heal Aram's broken heart. Or revenge.
===
You're always so optimistic.
-I thought that's why you loved me.
I love you because I can trust you.
===
I said I needed to follow my own path. I did. It led me back to you.

A new direction early on that is fresh and engaging. Also surprised that S6 is not the presumed finale. Now, there is no guarantee that S7 is going to be the penultimate season. One of the very few series that keeps on entertaining with interesting stories, humor, no offensive language and no computer generated special effects:
S1-rapid parade of world class monsters.
S2-more monsters, some far fetched but in fact inspired by actual events as the practice of "ghost brides" in Quon Zhang (No. 87).
S3-Reddington's bottomless wisdom in his brilliant criminal mind
S4-past of Keen, her father (finally identified) and Mr. Kaplan (her origin and connection to Keen & Red.)
S5-Red began to rebuild his empire and resources in the aftermath of Mr. Kaplan's death.

(S6- one of the episodes that fits today's news: A Chinese court on Monday (12-30-2019) sentenced He Jiankui , the scientist who made the world's first genetically edited babies last year and in turn incited a global uproar, to three years in prison for conducting “illegal medical practice,” Chinese state media reported.)
