The Blacklist: Redemption episode 5 spoilers: Howard’s latest mission

The Blacklist Redemption episode 5

The Blacklist: Redemption episode 5 is entitled “Borealis 301,” and this is going to be a story all about a number of different things … including an undercover mission that is going to pair together Tom Keen and Mr. Solomon. That’s something we constantly crave with this show, largely because of the fact that they’ve got this weird, complicated relationship that stems from their time together on the flagship show.

As for where the story is going to be coming up, we’ve got a little more news on that now.

The Blacklist: Redemption episode 5 synopsis – “On the hunt for a ring of ruthless thieves who steal classified material, Tom (Ryan Eggold) and Mr. Solomon (Edi Gathegi) must go undercover on an international flight they believe will be hijacked. Howard (Terry O’Quinn) urges Tom to find proof of a conspiracy orchestrated by Scottie (Famke Janssen).”

As we found out a little bit earlier this season, Howard has a rather interesting (and surprising) theory when it comes to Tom’s biological mother — that he’s not said mother at all. Instead, his feeling is that she is some sort of Russian operative who’s been made to look like her, something that really sent a shockwave down our spine. It was a twist so unusual, but this is an unusual show. Therefore, you do have to figure that these sort of things are possible and could easily happen without much warning.

Promo – Hey, if you love potential bottle episodes that are set for the most part on airplanes, this could be your thing! A possible airplane hijacking is going to send everyone into a state of peril, and this will force Tom and Mr. Solomon into making some tough decisions that they wouldn’t have to otherwise.

Now, we just wonder what the ratings for this episode will be given that it doesn’t have the luxury of airing following a new episode of Chicago Med. This is a show that is probably only hanging on by a thread in terms of its renewal odds, so it needs all of the help that it can get.
