So far on The Blacklist season 7, we’ve had an opportunity to see big episodes for Aram and Harold Cooper — heck, we know that there’s one coming for Alina Park courtesy of what happened in Anchorage!
With all of this in mind, it does make a good bit of sense that we end up seeing something great for Donald Ressler, as well. Rest assured, it is coming. You’re just going to have to wait until the second part of this season (premiering in March) in order to see it.
For some more The Blacklist video discussion, dive into some of our thoughts about Ilya Koslov and Reddington’s history at the bottom of this article! After you watch that, remember to also subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube and then also visit our show playlist. New updates are shared there throughout the week!
Speaking in a new interview with TVLine, executive producer Jon Bokenkamp notes that “It’s safe to say, Ressler might be sitting on a little secret of his own, and we’ll be digging that up in the back half of this season.” As for what that secret could be, it could stem back from before we even met him — just think in terms of his own history that was unraveled in “Anslo Garrick” early on in the series’ run. One of the great things about a show like The Blacklist is that every single character has so many different dark edges to them. It’s what makes them perfect to be around the Task Force! Sure, these people know the difference between right and wrong, but they also are not afraid to take bold risks and do things that more than teeter on the side of controversial. It’s a part of what makes them effective in working with Raymond Reddington. After all, there are a number of characters who would otherwise ask too many questions.
Beyond of course Ressler’s secret, there is another big question worth wondering in regards to Donald: Whether or not we’ll ever get to see something more with him and Elizabeth Keen romantically. There’s no guarantee the show will go there, but there have certainly been hints.
What do you want to see for Donald Ressler as we move further into The Blacklist season 7?
