‘The Blacklist’ 6×11 Review: “Bastien Moreau (No. 20)”

I’ve tried to keep the intensity of my personal feelings about the events of this season out of these posts, but I can’t do it anymore. This episode was the final nail in the coffin. I am absolutely furious with…

‘The Blacklist’ 6×06 Review: Lies, lies, and more lies

We’ve seen Liz lie to the Task Force plenty of times, but she went way beyond what she’s ever done before this time. Instead of just asking for their help, Liz told the Task Force that Red had given them…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×22 Review: ‘Sutton Ross’

The identity of the bones in the duffle bag was finally revealed in the season 5 finale, “Sutton Ross,” and it’s definitely a game changer, albeit one that the fans called ages ago. The Raymond Reddington we’ve known since the…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×19 Review: ‘Ian Garvey: Conclusion”

Last night, the fight between Red and Ian Garvey reached it’s end, and it was…something. I don’t know if I went into this episode with inflated expectations for an epic conclusion to a fight that’s been driving this whole season,…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×18 Review: ‘Zarak Mosadek’

This week’s new Blacklist “Zarak Mosadek” dropped an absolute bombshell. After Liz and Aram followed a lead on Ian Garvey, they discovered that he checked in on the same woman at a restaurant every day. Liz thought this meeting had…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×17 Review: ‘Anna Gracia Duerte’

In “Anna Gracia Duerte” The Blacklist tackled the sensitive topic of child brides and arranged marriages. “Anna Gracia Duerte” a 17 year old girl, was the target the Task Force was after. She had been a child bride, forced by…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×16 Review: ‘The Capricorn Killer’

This week’s episode, “The Capricorn Killer” may have been the most gruesome one that The Blacklist has ever delivered. The woman who Liz thought was just her FBI psychologist assigned to evaluate her for reinstatement into the bureau, turned out…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×15 Review: ‘Pattie Sue Edwards’

This week’s Blacklist, “Pattie Sue Edwards” was a solid episode. Not one of the season’s best, but still enjoyable. The most shocking moment came at the end of the episode when Detective Singleton was kidnapped and murdered by his boss, Ian…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×14 Review: ‘Mr. Raleigh Sinclair III’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×13 Review: ‘The Invisible Hand’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×12 Review: ‘Tommy Wattles’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×11 Review: ‘Abraham Stern’

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.…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×09 Review: ‘Ruin’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×04 Review: ‘The Endling’

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.…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×03 Review: ‘Miss Rebecca Thrall’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×02 Review: ‘Greyson Blaise’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×01 Review: ‘Smokey Putnam’

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…

‘The Blacklist 4×21 & 22 Review: ‘Mr. Kaplan’ & ‘Mr. Kaplan: Conclusion’

As The Blacklist does best, last night’s two part finale, “Mr. Kaplan” and “Mr. Kaplan: Conclusion” gave us answers without completely giving us answers. In “Conclusion” it seemed like they had finally answered if Red is Liz’s father or not,…

‘The Blacklist’ 4×20 Review: ‘The Debt Collector’

Last night’s episode “The Debt Collector” was the last before the 2 hour season finale next week. Ressler was out of jail on O.R. (own recognizance) which was a term that I wasn’t familiar with, so I looked it up…

‘The Blacklist’: 4×19 Review: ‘Dr. Bogdan Krilov’

So, those of you who regularly read my reviews will know that I love Ressler more than almost anything in this world, and I have so many feelings about what happened to him in “Dr. Bogdan Krilov” last night. I…

The Blacklist 4×11 Review: ‘The Harem’

Last night’s episode, “The Harem” was underwhelming to say the least. The group of female thieves were completely irrelevant, and it wasn’t even really a compelling case episode. There were a couple good exchanges of dialogue between characters, but almost…
