Going into Thursday night’s new episode of “The Blacklist,” we knew that there was going to be a lot of drama that played out. Despite all of the publicity surrounding Liz and Tom Keen getting married, we had a hard time thinking that they were going to get anything close to a romantic conclusion.
In the end, we definitely didn’t see a typical ceremony with vows, romantic gestures, or really anything else. Instead, we had a violent shootout after it was clear that Mr. Solomon, a familiar face from the Cabal with a mysterious new boss, was out to bring in Liz. Now that her other identity was out there, some ghosts from the past were there to try to do a little bit of cleanup duty. While we don’t trust Tom, we certainly felt for Liz having to run around and avoid gunfire, while both pregnant and also while wearing a wedding dress.
The good news for now is that Liz managed to emerge from the chapel with Tom, and in one piece. Yet, at the same time it’s clear that this story is far from over. They didn’t have their wedding, and now they face a dangerous future where something could be after them almost every turn.
Overall, we don’t know how you say this episode is anything but thrilled, with good moments for almost every person in the cast. There was even some humor when it comes to the Task Force and Tom, and it was nice to see Cooper at least get an invite to be the man officiating the ceremony. Episode grade: B+.
