On The Blacklist season 5 episode 3 airing on NBC in just a matter of days, you will have an opportunity to see something that could be in demand from many of you: A great Ressler storyline. One of the challenges with this show is finding a way to constantly make sure that everyone within the ensemble is getting a little bit of love. You don’t want any character to suffer over the course of a long story arc, so you need to just find some interesting ways in which to get everyone involved.
For The Blacklist season 5 episode 3, it looks like in particular one of the priorities is going to be giving Diego Klattenhoff’s character of Agent Ressler a little more time in the spotlight. The title for this upcoming hour is “Miss Rebecca Thrall,” and the synopsis below gives you a sense of what is coming for him:
“While the Task Force investigates a series of suspicious police shootings, Agent Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) is distracted by increasing external pressures. With his back up against the wall, Red (James Spader) drafts Tom (Ryan Eggold) in executing an elaborate plan to help re-establish his criminal reputation. Michael Aronov, Clark Middleton, Aida Turturro and Sarah Wynter guest star.”
We’re all for ensuring that Ressler gets good storylines, given that we were coming off one of his better ones with Julian Gale at the end of this past season. There was something fascinating about him being at odds with someone who had legitimate reasons to be questioning the FBI Task Force and some of their work. We would love to see this remain a factor in the show in some way, given that it makes sense that there would be skeptics of the work that the Task Force does. In all honesty, there should be skeptics when you consider some of the shade stuff that they’re doing helping Reddington with his criminal empire.
In speaking more about James Spader’s character for a moment, this does ultimately lead to another question: What in the world could be coming up with him and Tom? Over the first episode or two, we’re going to be very much aware of the fact that Tom is in possession of a suitcase, one whose comments could end up leaving a huge mark on Reddington’s empire and his future. How we end up seeing this story evolve outward from here is one of the things we’re the most curious about going into season 5. Is there a way that Reddington can turn this around and not get so much suspicion firing off in his direction?
