‘The Blacklist’ 5×21 Review’: ‘Lawrence Dane Devlin’

The last episode before the season finale, “Lawrence Dane Devlin” was an action packed one, and it came with a lot of consequences. The Task Force (Aram specifically) was able to rescue Samar just in the nick of time, but…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×20 Review: Nicholas T. Moore

This week’s Blacklist, “Nicholas T. Moore” was definitely a strange one. It was a Blacklist meets The X Files type of episode. The cult that kidnapped Samar was an incredibly creepy and violent one who labelled anyone outside their community as…

‘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’

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

‘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’ 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 The 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…

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

‘The Blacklist’ 5×10 Review: ‘The Informant’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×07 Review: ‘The Kilgannon Corporation’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×06 Review: ‘The Travel Agency’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 5×05 Review: ‘Ilyas Surkov’

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…

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

‘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…
