The Blacklist season 5 episode 4 video: Reddington and the post office

The Blacklist logo any seasonFor whatever reason, Raymond Reddington has a knack for visiting some places that other people hate. Often, it is the DMV; on The Blacklist season 5 episode 4, it is going to be the post office — and while there, he will do his fair share of complaining in regards to some “deliveries” that were made to him. These deliveries, to be specific, are rather uncomfortable because they are dead bodies. Reddington doesn’t want them — as a matter of fact, nobody wants them. One of the biggest issues that will come along in this episode is seeing James Spader’s character try to handle some of what is being thrown at him here.

This sneak peek basically is Reddington doing what he can in order to work his magic on a postal clerk, someone who doesn’t quite want to have anything to do with what he is throwing down to him. There are few things on this show than we enjoy more than watching someone act completely dismissive to Reddington, not having some of the necessary awareness as to who he is or some of what he is capable of. The people who cast Reddington aside in a pretty dismissive way like this are by and large just setting themselves up for disaster down the road.

For those of you who want to dive into a stamp-related rabbit hole, this is the time! We were very curious when the words Calvin and Hobbes were uttered in this sneak peek given that the legendary comic strip has long been averse to licensing for anything, let alone postage stamps. Much of that is due to series creator Bill Waterson, who felt as though commercialization of one’s product cheapened the overall brand. This is why the majority of Calvin-related merchandise you see out there is counterfeit.

With that being said it turns out that there was a Calvin and Hobbes stamp that was made back in 2010 as a part of a series celebrating some of the greatest comic strips of all time. Therefore, maybe it’s theoretically possible that the postal working actually has some of these — we also feel like someone on the writing staff is a big Calvin and Hobbes fan and that is tremendously exciting.

Like we said, that is a large rabbit hole we went down here. The most important thing to note here is that if you love colorful confrontations with Reddington at the center of them, odds are you will enjoy and appreciate this episode very much. It airs Wednesday on NBC, and we’ll have more coverage of it here at CarterMatt soon.
