The Red in danger story line took a backseat to one of the most anticipated returns of the season -- Tom is back, tattooed, bald and bad-ass! "T. Earl King" is an episode of the unexpected. First twist, Red gets kidnapped, and it's not of his own doing for once. We've grown accustomed to Reddin... more
