The Blacklist (2014) – Season 1 – Episode 16 – Mako Tanida (No. 83) (2014)
Raymond Reddington: Searching in the desert for a drop of vengeance to slake an unquenchable thirst is a lonely walk, my friend.
Donald Ressler: Tanida’s close. I can burn
the whole neighborhood down, or you can tell me where he is.
Raymond Reddington: Donald, I understand
how you feel. Beneath the iron-and-rust exterior beats the heart of a man swimming in immeasurable grief. I am truly sorry about Audrey. There are few that understand love and loss more than I.
Donald Ressler: Well, I’m glad you understand. Where is he?
Raymond Reddington: Let me tell you something that someone much wiser than I told me at a similar point in my life. Go home. Turn back from this and go home. It may seem like the hardest thing in the world, but it is profoundly easier than what you’re contemplating.
Donald Ressler: I’m not turning back.
Raymond Reddington: That’s pretty much what I said. In your dust-up with Tanida,
were there any survivors?
Donald Ressler: Yes.
Raymond Reddington: Injuries?
Donald Ressler: Yeah, why?
Raymond Reddington: There’s a house in Columbia heights… doubles as an underground hospital. 1306 Gerard. May be worth a visit.
Raymond Reddington: Agent Ressler. Once you cross over, there are things in the darkness that can keep your heart from feeling the light again.
Donald Ressler: All I feel is hate.
Raymond Reddington: Good. You’re gonna need it.
