‘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' Renewed for Season 5

As we continue to reel and seethe following NBC’s decision to cancel the well-performing Timeless, the network continues to hand out renewals following the pickups of Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med, Taken, and Blindspot on Wednesday. The latest show…

‘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’: 4×18 Review: ‘Philomena’

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…

‘The Blacklist’ 4×16 and 4×17 Review: ‘Dembe Zuma’ ‘Requiem’

The Blacklist finally returned last night, and oh man, they did not hold back. The first hour of The Blacklist event “Dembe Zuma” answered our two biggest burning questions from the 4×15 cliffhanger, and “Requiem” just took off from there.…

The Blacklist 4×15 Review: ‘The Apothecary’

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…

The Blacklist 4×14 Review: ‘The Architect’

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…

The Blacklist 4×13 Review: ‘Isabella Stone’

“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…

The Blacklist 4×12 Review: ‘Natalie Luca’

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…

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…

The Blacklist 4×10 Review: ‘The Forecaster’

“The Forecaster” definitely lived up to expectations, delivering a successful return to the “case of the week” format. It was incredibly refreshing to see the team back together solving a case, with little to no over-arching drama involved. The case…

The Blacklist 4×09 Review: ‘Lipet’s Seafood Company’

The promotional photos and trailer for Lipet’s Seafood Company heavily focused on the fact that there was a mole inside the team, but it turns out that it wasn’t the kind of mole we were expecting. Samar was revealed as…

The Blacklist 4×07 Review: ‘Dr. Adrian Shaw’

So next week is  the fall finale, and “Dr. Adrian Shaw” left us with just as many questions as we had at the start of the season. The mystery of who Liz’s father is was solved, right? Wrong. We thought…

The Blacklist 4×06 Review: ‘The Thrushes’

Tonight in “The Thrushes” the moment we’ve all been waiting for happened. That’s right, they finally got Agnes back!!!!!! It feels like it’s been an eternity and a half since they first started looking for her, but Red’s work finally…

The Blacklist 4×05 Review: ‘The Lindquist Concern’

So “The Lindquist Concern” has come and gone, and you guessed it, we still don’t have any answers. Once again, Agnes wasn’t rescued, but again, they’re getting closer and closer. Also, the DNA test that we all thought might finally…

The Blacklist 4×04 Review: ‘Gaia’

So “Gaia” has come and gone, and Kirk still has Agnes. It looked like the team might finally bring her home this time, but largely thanks to Tom, Agnes is just as far away as ever. When Liz told him…

The Blacklist 4×03 Review: ‘Miles McGrath’

In Thursday’s episode “Miles McGrath” the team and Red continued the hunt for Agnes. Red is still adamant about working on his own, and because of everything that has happened tensions are understandably high. Let’s talk about Donald Ressler for…

The Blacklist 4×02 Review: ‘Mato’

There’s a lot to talk about from last night’s episode “Mato”, so let’s break it down into a few key moments. We all knew that Red would become completely unhinged in the hunt for Liz, but I for one didn’t…

‘The Blacklist’ 4×01 Review: “Esteban”
