Recap

A man with a massive dog is checking in to a ground-floor room in a hotel. He pleasantly chats with the clerk. He moves several suitcases into the room and stares in the mirror. The man takes off fake teeth, removes his wig—he had been wearing a disguise. The bald man takes a shower and pours disinfectant over his whole body. After, still nude, he disinfects the entire hotel room before covering every inch of the room in plastic. He has several bruises on his naked body...

Episode Quotes
Liz: A man's life is at stake!
Red: A man's life is always at stake. And tragically low stakes at that. I should remind you that I did not offer you my services to help you round up your run of the mill drug lord or what have you. You all seem to be doing a perfectly mediocre job of that on your own. I'm after the big game Lizzie. The ones that matter.

Liz: Do I really have tells?
Tom: Lizzie, you're an open book. which is one of the things I love about you. I always know exactly what you're thinking.

Red: You see Lizzie, now I'm interested.
Lizzie: Why?
Red: The Stewmaker is in town. You're going to need a plumber.

Red: Your witness is dead, you lost Lorca, and he took Agent Keen. I'd say that my meeting with Lorca might be the equivalent of you falling on your ass and landing in a pile of Christmas.

Donald: Lorca is not going anywhere, and I'll never trust you. You know why?
Red:Because after tracking me for years, you've come up with one undeniable truth. I only do what's good for me. And that is a person you can trust, Donald. Now, lets go.

(FBI raids the cabin and finds Red with Elizabeth)
Agent Malik: How'd you get in here?
Red: That's a pretty blouse.

Liz: You're a monster.
Red: Yes.
(Elizabeth climbs into the ambulance)
Liz: How can you live with that?
Red: By saving your life.
(closes the ambulance doors)

Donald: Lorca got away.
Red: Cost of doing business.
Donald: No. You're not just going to let him go. He was offensive. You didn't like that.
Red: He is on my jet.
