Live Watch Party
Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, Aaron and I decided to bring you something extra since we were all stuck at home and got our friends from the show to share a little behind the scenes insights as we watched the show live. Here is this week’s live watch party.
Case Profile for Mid Season 7 Premiere
In the first hour a copy cat art thief, Victoria Fenberg, is not only making counterfeit art items to profit from the originals, she actually is stealing from her own families personal collection to help her accomplice fund a lawsuit against her father’s pharmaceutical company. This episode is just the setup to the real plot at hand which is the second hour where Red and 5 of his closest criminal friends made a deal to each hold onto one of 6 gold caskets that apart are a jewel of their own, but together are worth a fortune.
The second hour turns into a game of Clue as one of the six dies unexpectedly followed by another and then another. Turns out on the smallest of the 6 caskets contains a micro dot that is a list of Turkish assets working in the American government. The Turks want it back and hire Cornelius Ruck to play “The Butler” Arthur Rodman in this game of who done it. In the end Red gets the best of them all and splits the sale of the caskets with Casandra, an old flame he left behind long ago, similar to Madeline Pratt, because he had to intervene in Elizabeth’s life.
