The Blacklist: Season Three, Episode Eight

That title card is so damn wrong.

1) Red never heard of them before this episode.

2) They’re a bunch of bottom-feeding yokels. Blacklisters? Really?

It’s a lack of imagination that gave them a ranking. They should have been “off-list” or “not listed.”

A small group of yokels …

… I was all “WTF?” too, like you are in that shot. And by a bunch of nitwits who still have an analog TV!

Anyway, this was a good episode, filled with some Big Surprises that I won’t spoil.

Let me just say that almost every character is affected in it. Really, it’s a bit of a tour-de-force how the writer managed to pull that off! Well done. Like a line of dominoes falling at the end.

The yokels have an analog TV but …

Lizzy wonders …

… “There’s good cell service?”

I kid. Aside from unbelievable elements like that, a very good episode that makes me wonder how the hell they’re going to untie all of the new knots they’ve created.
