The Blacklist: Redemption's First Two Minutes Prove Scottie Is More Sadistic Than Red Reddington

Famke Janssen, The Blacklist: Redemption

If you thought Red Reddington was the most sadistic person Tom Keen would ever come across, think again.

NBC has released the first two minutes of the Blacklist spin-off The Blacklist: Redemption, which premieres Thursday (Feb. 23), and if the clip is any indication, Tom's (Ryan Eggold) mother/new boss Scottie Hargrave (Famke Janssen) is cut from the same cloth as Red (James Spader) -- but she might be even more twisted.

We know what you're thinking: How is that even possible? Well, in the opening minutes of the new series, we see Scottie torturing a would-be informant in what appears to be a cargo plane, in order to get the name of someone who kidnapped a woman and her son.

Here's what to expect from The Blacklist: Redemption

"You should know, I have anger issues," Scottie warns her prisoner in the clip. "My therapist says it's because I have no coping mechanism."

Scottie sends the man careening towards the open door of the plane. But it's actually a twist at the end of the sneak peek that proves just how, well, twisted Scottie really is -- and how much fun it's going to be to watch her in action. We're already hoping for a crossover that will see her and Red facing off.

The Blacklist: Redemption premieres Thursday at 10/9c on NBC, immediately following the winter finale of The Blacklist.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 will introduce a new crop of terrible movies to make fun of starting April 14, Netflix has announced.

The cult classic show, in which robot puppets and their human companion talk over a movie, originally aired from 1988 to 1999 on three different networks over the course of its run. In November 2015, creator Joel Hodgson launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund a revival, and raised enough money to independently produce 14 episodes. Netflix agreed to distribute those episodes, billed as Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return.

Comedian Jonah Ray heads the revival's cast, which also includes Patton Oswalt, Felicia Day and comedians Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount as the new voices of wisecracking robots Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot.

Hodgson is keeping the movies that will get riffed on this season a secret until the show drops.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return arrives Friday, April 14 on Netflix.

Exclusive Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: Prentiss Will Stop at Nothing to Help Reid

Reid could sure use a helping hand now that he's been arrested on suspicion of murder. Luckily, Prentiss is extending one.

In our exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday's Criminal Minds, Prentiss (Emily Prentiss) wants to hook Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) up with her old friend, prominent defense attorney Fiona Duncan (Jeananne Goossen), since his rogue Mexico trip rendered him ineligible for the FBI's legal assistance.

"Emily, I really appreciate it, but helping me could destroy your reputation in the bureau," Reid says.

Because she's the world's greatest boss, Prentiss tells him: "My battle, my choice. Please let me help you."

Criminal Minds boss on Reid's "heartbreaking" predicament

Spoiler alert! He does. Showrunner Erica Messer told that Goossen will be around for "number of episodes" trying to get Reid out of this pickle.

"The big question in [Wednesday's] episode is, will he plead guilty or not guilty, and what would that mean?" Messer said. "How could he plead guilty to something he has no clear memory of? His moral code says he never would've done that. And his FBI agent side is like, don't admit to something you didn't do. And yet if he does that, he'll get a lighter sentence and all that stuff. Do you make that deal with the devil? Or do you take your chances on being proven innocent?"

Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS.
