The Blacklist (S05E22) “Sutton Ross”

After a full year, The Blacklist Season 5 finale, “Sutton Ross”, gave us the long-awaited truth behind that duffel bag of bones. The same bones that our dear, departed Mr. Kaplan dug up in the Season 4 finale came full circle to close out Season 5. In one of the best episodes this season, the race to…

The Blacklist (S05E21) “Lawrence Dane Devlin”

The penultimate episode of Season 5 of The Blacklist, “Lawrence Dane Devlin”, turned out to be less about the duffel bag of bones, and more about a race against time to save one of the team.  With Samar taken in the last episode, this week focused on what happened to her. The episode, titled “Lawrence…

The Blacklist (S05E20) "Nicholas T. Moore"

After the mad rush to the finish line after the demise of Ian Garvey last week, this weeks episode, “Nicholas T. Moore”, took a little step back to a Blacklister of the week formula. It felt a little out of place, knowing we’re hurtling toward the biggest reveal and cliffhanger the show has ever given…

The Blacklist (S05E19) "Ian Garvey: Conclusion"

This episode, billed as the Blacklist Face Off between Reddington and Ian Garvey (Jonny Coyne) was certainly that. But more to the point, it was a face off between Reddington and Liz Keen, which was far more dramatic. Last week’s Blacklister, Zarak Mosadek (Bernard White) meets with Red. Their plan is to stop Garvey’s little drug operation…

The Blacklist (S05E18) "Zarak Mosadek"

It was a case of The Blacklist meets Ocean’s 11 in the episode “Zarak Mosadek”, with a fun caper in Paris for the team. We’ve seen capers such as this before, where Reddington and co pull off a heist or kidnapping, as in the 100th episode, and The Director back in Season 3. This episode was…

The Blacklist (S05E17) "Anna-Gracia Duerte”

After a break of two weeks, The Blacklist returned last night with the 17th episode of the season, “Anna-Gracia Duerte”. Things on the Garvey front were a little more toned down than of late, but there was still one very important piece of evidence obtained in the war against him. Our Blacklister of the week…

The Blacklist (S05E16) "The Capricorn Killer"

We start off this week’s episode with a difference–we’re not getting a Blacklister handed to us by Reddington, but instead, a cold case of Liz’s from her profiling days at Quantico, The Capricorn Killer. Liz is on a tear, needing to take Ian Garvey (Jonny Coyne) down for killing Tom and Detective Singleton, after watching…

The Blacklist (S05E15) "Pattie Sue Edwards"

Wives seeking justice and revenge for their husbands seem to be the current theme of The Blacklist, and this episode was consistent. We open with our Blacklister of the week, Pattie Sue Edwards (Liza J. Bennett) sitting in a diner where she has just unleashed a fast-acting virus to the unsuspecting patrons. The waitress serving…

The Blacklist (S05E14) "Mr. Raleigh Sinclair III"

If there’s one thing The Blacklist does well, it’s delivering top guest stars appearing as the titular Blacklister of the week. This episode was no exception, with guest stars John Noble as our Blacklister, Raleigh Sinclair, and Martha Plimpton as psychologist Dr. Sharon Fulton. The case of the week was a simple one as cases…
