Another action packed episode of The Blacklist, and this time there was even more drama to keep viewers on their seats throughout the whole 45 minutes.
Even though I don’t really understand from where that episode name came, I loved the action, the danger, and the high speed of events.
This time, the quest to clear Liz’s name had to temporarily halt, as Red went to the defensive to protect her from the assassin Wendigo, who, in Red’s words, was better than himself. And that is not the worst thing yet. Besides Wendigo, there was an army hunting for Liz with the ultimate purpose of getting the bounty money. To stop that army from coming, Red had to make use of all his cunning, as well as enlisting the unwilling assistance of the FBI task force, as there were too many loose ends to tie before everything was too late.
Fortunately, they managed to do it in time, and in the process, brought down a black website and helping FBI discover the identities of a bunch of hidden strikers. But then, that was not the whole story yet. Intertwining with the online deadly cat and mouse game is the defection of Mr. Vargas, which nearly took away both Liz and Red’s lives.
I was quite surprised that Red trusted Mr. Vargas so completely, but maybe there was a reason, maybe they have been working for so long, or maybe Red was overwhelmed by the pain from the news of his most trusted man’s death delivered by Mr. Vargas that he let his guard down. Well, that is not really important, ’cause in the end everything was settled and his beloved Dembe was back (YEAHHHHHHHHHHH). But from now on, he should be more careful, especially with the order for Ressler to share intelligence with CIA on everything related to him and Liz. It will be much more challenging for him to engage the help of the task force, and any wrong move may bring everything to an end.
Now, as usual, we look at the promos for the next episode. It seems that Tom will be the star of next week, and it’s quite puzzling who that mysterious Sir Crispin Crandall is and what role he plays that is so important that everyone will be racing to find him before others.
Tom seems to be in big trouble. After all, he messed up with the Russian thugs, and those guys normally don’t let things go so easily.
The underground lawyer is back, and I wonder what he has managed to unearth now that he has much more time and resources on hand.
I really hat this outfit. It puts a few more kilos on her, and make her look very old and out of fashion. Besides, she looks sad and tense, so things may not be moving the way they want.
Another disastrous outfit. Now she looks a bit like pregnant. What’s wrong with the stylist in this episode?
The director of CIA seems to be moving his office to the Post Office temporarily for now, and there must be something that makes him look not very pleased.
Let’s end this post with the handsome face of Tom Keen. A few more days and all the questions will be answered.
