Warning: We're about to run down the biggest TV moments from Monday night. If you don't want to be spoiled on a particular show, skip to the next!
How I Met Your Mother: You sure know how to distract us, oh HIMYM Gods. First you made us wait six long, Mother-free weeks, but then rewarded us with the cutest Mosby, lighthouse proposal we've ever seen. Then you distracted us with an adorable (yet ultimately pointless) all rhyming episode and now tonight you've reminded us that this season is dragging along at a snail's pace. Tonight fans finally hit a wedding weekend milestone: The Rehearsal Dinner. However, the episode's big twist felt like a gigantic form of HIMYM déjà vu.
Barney spent the majority of tonight's half-hour whining like a four-year old and throwing tantrums because Robin refused to have the rehearsal dinner at a laser tag arcade. (We get it, dude. After nine seasons, we know that laser tag is legendary.) However, after all the kicking and screaming, we discovered at the last possible minute that it was all a big plan to surprise Robin with an ice-rink/Canada themed bash. Barney worked extremely hard to cover everything up, including faking getting himself arrested by a security guard. So there you have it. Did anyone else feel like this was just like when Barney proposed to Robin? Will he always have to trick her and stress everyone out before giving our gal some good news? Sigh…
The Blacklist: Tonight was the second installment of the jaw-dropping, two-part mid-season finale and it was 42 minutes of pure adrenaline! We saw at the end of last week's episode that Liz had been captured by Red's former associate/fellow blacklister Anslo Garrick, and tonight the new big bad was thisclose to killing our spunky brunette cop. Red demanded to be released from his glass box of horrors, and upon his release, Anslo took Red and Liz hostage. Liz was able to wiggle away at the last minute, but one of Anslo's minions cut out Red's tracking device making it nearly impossible for Liz to follow and subsequently rescue Red.
While Liz was determined to find a Plan B, Red discovered that Anslo was merely the hired help on this mega-crazy mission. He was actually hired by Fitch (played by Alan Alda) who then proceeded to accuse our pretending-to-be-drugged Red of spilling confidential information. Fitch agreed to let Red go for the time being, but he warned our anti-hero with this cryptic message: "There's nowhere you can go, there's no one you can trust to keep you from us."
Once he was safely away from the Team of Crazy, Red called Liz to let her know that he was fine, but he would be leaving town for a while. However, Red assured Liz that he would always be there in case she needed him. "Wherever I am, whatever I'm doing, if you are in need, I will be there," he said. It was a very Dad-like thing to say, which led Liz to ask the question that we all have been dying to know: "Are you my father?" Red responded by saying, "No." But then he added, "Lizzy, be careful of your husband…" Dun dun duuuun!

Hostages: Things are getting hot up in this twisted hostage situation! In tonight's episode Duncan (with the help of Ellen) successfully saved The President from being killed by another terrorist organization. In a shocking turn of events, Ellen told Duncan that she is now ready and willing to go through with the original plan to kill The President of the United States. Duncan is so relieved to hear this news that he embraced Ellen in a hug and slowly but surely… they kissed! Is this what the beginning stages of Stockholm syndrome looks like? We definitely think so!
The Voice: There are only six singers left in the hit NBC competition, and each of the contestants really brought their A-game in tonight's musically-packed episode. Check out the top six performances right here and then let us know who you're rooting for!
