for raymond

I was re-watching some of S2 and this scene caught my attention.

LIz: W-why doesn’t he want me to see you?

Naomi: You tell me.

Liz: I think it might be because you know something about how the two of us might be connected.

Naomi: He wants something from you. It’s a game. It’s a manipulation. He’s made you feel a connection that makes you feel like you matter somehow. And there’s no one on earth who can make a woman feel like the center of his universe more than Raymond Reddington. I’ll tell you this, though. He’s not who you think he is.


And this is Red’s expression as Naomi is discussing Raymond Reddington and his effect on women.
