TVOM: "The Blacklist is one of those shows that can make a few storytelling missteps during an episode and still end up compelling and gripping throughout the whole hour. I admit that through the first half of the episode this week, I was unimpressed, but by the end, I was enthralled. Just goes to show you, a few mistakes do not a series make. Does that make sense? I’m going to roll with it anyway."
