The Blacklist season 6 may not premiere until 2019, but we’re keeping the discussion going in the form of spotlights! We’re doing these every Saturday with some of the series’ main characters, and today, the focus is on none other than Samar Navabi.
There’s a lot of ground to cover for her potentially in season 6, so let’s go ahead and dive right in! Remember here that you can also check out some more of our expectations in the video below; if you like this, be sure to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube!
1. Show Samar’s recovery – We know that a time jump at some point is possible, but we do hope that the writers don’t just ignore what happened to Samar at the end of last season. She almost died! How does that change her? How does that give her a new perspective on life? These are things that would shake anyone, even someone who has put her life on the line so many times before.
2. Give us more of her past – She came on the series with an extensive background already in law enforcement, and that’s something we could see dived into a little bit more. One fun possibility that we could imagine for her is that it’d be interesting to see her help Aram with his own development as a field agent, knowing some of the mistakes that she made along the way.
3. More missions alongside Liz – This is a relationship that we’d like to see explored a little bit more, especially in the event it does become clear to Samar what Liz is doing to uncover Reddington’s true identity. Ultimately, we do consider it to be an interesting story possibility to explore.
4. Of course, the wedding! – Given that Samar and Aram are now engaged, there’s a really fun opportunity to explore wedding planning and the like. While we understand that there’s a case to be made for the two parties eloping, we don’t really want to see just that on the show moving forward. We’d rather the writers look at some opportunities for fun, more-vulnerable stories for this character where we learn more about her.
