The Blacklist returned last night with, “Mr. Raleigh Sinclair III” and they hit the ground running. Towards the end of the episode, Liz brought Detective Singleton into the Task Force’s headquarters to prove that her relationship with Reddington wasn’t something suspicious, but fully authorized by the FBI. I was convincedRead More →

Last night’s new episode “The Invisible Hand” was a somewhat lackluster “criminal of the week” episode that still managed to drop a couple of bomb shells and had a lot of enjoyable moments. Perhaps the two biggest revelations of “The Invisible Hand” were one, that Ian Garvey, the man responsibleRead More →

On this week’s Blacklist “Tommy Wattles” Liz finally confronted Red about what he knew about Tom’s death and the secret he had uncovered. Red did his trademark evasion of the question, but a short talk with Dembe convinced him to tell Liz at least part of the truth. Honestly, whatRead More →

Last night in “Abraham Stern” The Blacklist celebrated 100 episodes. The tone of the episode reflected the celebration and happiness of the occasion, as we were treated to a much more light-hearted episode than is the norm for the series. Red got to participate in an old fashioned treasure hunt/robberyRead More →

Ressler was front and center in almost every single scene of “The Informant” making it one of my favorite episodes of the season so far. Things finally came to a head with Henry Prescott, as Ressler had to decide whether to keep following his orders, or to face whatever consequencesRead More →

In last night’s all new Blacklist, “Ruin,” Liz returned with a vengeance, single-handedly dispatching five members of a crime family who dared to attack her at her cabin in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness. In order to mourn Tom properly and to clear her head, Liz decided she neededRead More →

Last night’s emotional tour de force “The Kilgannon Corporation” was the best episode The Blacklist has ever done, and no I’m not exaggerating. The characters were perfectly balanced, the writing was spectacular, the plot was intense and emotional, and the monologues given by Red and DembeĀ  no doubt brought evenRead More →

Last night’s new episode of The Blacklist, “The Travel Agency” held steady with the blacklister centric theme, focusing on a defunct crime ring of for-hire murderers. The blacklister was a former member of this crime ring, but after a job gone wrong he suffered serious brain damage. It left himRead More →

Last night’s new episode, “Ilyas Surkov’ was another enjoyable installment, potentially setting up some big revelations for the rest of the season. The promotion for “the death of one of our own” in “Ilyas Surkov” was a misdirection, as most of us thought. No one new died, but Liz didRead More →

Last night’s new episode of The Blacklist “The Endling” was probably the most disturbing installment of the fifth season yet. It opened with the completely unnecessary and cruel murder of a race horse and his trainer in a barn fire. I guess this scene was meant to establish how evilRead More →

Have The Blacklist writers finally listened to fans and returned to the old style of the show that focuses on everyone in the task force and a new blacklister every week? It seems like they might have, as “Miss Rebecca Thrall” continued the trend we’ve seen in the first twoRead More →

Wednesday’s new episode “Greyson Blaise” proved once again that The Blacklist is at its best when it focuses on blacklisters and the task force, not family drama. Pretty much everyone had equal screen time, and the entire task force even got to go to the party that Red decided toRead More →

The Blacklist finally made its return last night, with the season 5 premiere, “Smokey Putnam.” The episode opened with Red stealing cars and generally having the time of his life. Now that his criminal empire has been destroyed, a huge weight has been taken off his shoulders, and he getsRead More →

So I was expecting a lot from “Philomena” and I guess for me, it kind of fell flat. I was expecting things to really start escalating with the fight between Kate and Red, but it was pretty much just another episode of buildup to the final confrontation, which it looksRead More →

I’m going to try and make this review as coherent as possible, because I’m still reeling from that winter finale. We knew “The Apothecary” was going to be extremely painful because Red has been poisoned and was slowly dying, but man I was not expecting this. I think you allRead More →

So I’m just going to come out and say it, last night’s The Blacklist, titled “The Architect”, was awesome. The episode returned to the style of season one and two, and hardly focused on any relationship drama whatsoever. Every character we’ve been wanting to see more of got a lotRead More →

“Isabella Stone” promised to be an action packed episode. and it did not disappoint. I was worried that Isabella Stone would just be a throw away villain easily defeated by Red, but she actually lived up to the hype. If Red hadn’t had the help of the FBI she probablyRead More →

Last night’s episode ‘Natalie Luca’ was chalk full of foreshadowing. Red gave a whole speech about how he feels that death is coming for him soon, something hovering around him that he can’t pinpoint. Tom completed the task that Red had given him and came back home to Liz, talkingRead More →
