‘The Blacklist’ Season 5 Review: The Tides Have Changed
“Pride comes before a fall!
The Blacklist kicked off to an exciting start where the truth behind Raymond Reddington’s queer obsession with Elizabeth Keen is finally revealed. Finally, after letting the fans agonize over it for four long seasons, series creator Jon Bokenkamp has let the cat out of the bag. So, what becomes of the series after this?
Agent Keen’s rollercoaster life never seems to catch a break. The empire of the most wanted fugitive is crashing by the day and the devastating fate that awaits him due to this tragedy is getting clearer. The usual predicament of the FBI colluding with state criminals is the order of the day as well as the capturing of the deadliest and most dangerous criminals.

These remnants have Dembe and Reddington searching far and wide and exhausting what little resources they have left.
