‘The Blacklist’: Red Gets Psychoanalyzed – and All the Inkblots Look Like Genitalia (Exclusive Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Analyzing a man like Raymond Reddington (James Spader) — or whoever that guy really is — is surely no easy task, but on Friday’s episode of “The Blacklist,” it looks like a doctor is going to try to pick Red apart — and so will Red.

In a new clip from Friday night’s Season 6 episode, titled “The Ethicist” — which is exclusive to TheWrap — Red is chatting with a psychiatrist after being sent to a federal medical institution following his request to the court for a psychiatric evaluation because he says he doesn’t understand why he’s on trial — or what he’s done wrong.

“You don’t?” she asks him, to which he responds, “Not really, no.”

“Have you killed people?” she asks.

“Polluting rivers kills people — good people, killed for profit,” Red responds. “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. So do I really understand the proceedings against me? No, I don’t.”

OK, it’s time for Red to undergo a series of tests then. But he warns the doctor, “if they’re designed to see whether I can distinguish between the behavior the system defines as criminal and that which I deem appropriate, I can’t.”

Alright then, first up is the Rorschach inkblot test.

“Ah, inkblots! I must warn you, they all look like genitalia to me,” Red says.

Here’s the official description for the episode: When Red (James Spader) is sent to a federal medical institution following his request to the court for a psychiatric evaluation, Liz (Megan Boone) and Jennifer (guest star Fiona Dourif) use his time away to search for a Blacklister they believe may have valuable information about Red’s past. Ken Leung, Becky Ann Baker and LisaGay Hamilton also guest star.

Watch the clip above.

Raymond Reddington is a liar, and Elizabeth Keen is going to prove it. In this new sneak peek from the two-part Season 6 premiere of “The Blacklist,” which is exclusive to TheWrap, Lizzie hits the ground running on that assignment.

In the 54-second clip, Liz (Megan Boone) and her sister Jennifer Reddington (guest star Fiona Dourif) are discussing their plans to secretly investigate the identity of the imposter (James Spader) who has been posing as their father, Raymond Reddington, for the last 30 years. (Right? That shock came at the end of Season 5.)

Jennifer wants to go to FBI, but Liz says that’s just not an option, given Red’s status. No, they need to wait to see if they can restore the medical files that Reddington erased when they are suddenly interrupted — by Red.

Yes, it’s safe to say Liz and Red are going to have a very “complicated” dynamic during the upcoming season of the NBC drama.

Here’s the official description for the season: Following the startling revelation that Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) isn’t who he says he is, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) is torn between the relationship she’s developed with the man assumed to be her father and her desire to get to the bottom of years of secrets and lies. Red leads Liz and the FBI to some of the most strange and dangerous criminals yet, growing his empire and eliminating rivals in the process. All throughout, Liz and Red engage in an uneasy cat-and-mouse game in which lines will be crossed and the truth will be revealed.
