TVOM: "What I love about The Blacklist is not only its characters, or the excitement level that the show carries week to week (though I love those things too). But most of all, I love how it can carry a story about its characters that so similarly parallels their criminal each week. Now of course, the show is built that way, but each mission means just as much to the characters as individuals as it does to the weekly story. The show treads the line perfectly between a procedural that’s exciting, and furthering the stories of the characters it has created. This week’s episode was a perfect example of that."
