The most recent episode of The Blacklist season 7 was titled Kuwait and it aired on NBC in the United States on October 25th. The episode can now also be streamed on Netflix, and yesterday evening, I had the time to watch how the story about Katarina Rostova, Raymond Reddington, Elizabeth Keen, and all the others progresses.
The story goes on with Katarina Rostova being the new and very nice neighbor of Elizabeth Keen. Of course, our FBI agent doesn’t catch any suspicion of her new neighbor, and she even lets her new neighbor watch out for Agnes. So, everything moves the way a story like normally does, something I find incredibly annoying. Yes, this is a part of the story that I strongly dislike, simply because it is so normal, so cliche, and something I have seen many times before. I do hope, this part of the story will come to an end as quickly as possible.
And guess what, during a search in the house of Elizabeth Keen while watching out for Agnes, Katarina discovered the name Kozlov, the name of Raymond Reddington before he became the Raymond we know today. But, I don’t get why that would be of interest to Katarina, after all, she did know this before as well.
Luckily, the other part of the story of the fourth episode of The Blacklist season 7 was way more interesting!
Reddington and Cooper go to Iran
Cooper has to go to Iran to find out what happened to one of his colleagues 30 years ago. The person is said to be alive, and Cooper goes to Iran to bring him out. Raymond Reddington goes along, and on the way, Harold Cooper tells Raymond that he is planning to share the real identity of Ramond with his superiors. Raymond doesn’t like the idea, but during the time of the episode, they get more time to speak and in the end, Cooper decides to withhold the information from his superiors.
But, as they go to Iran, Cooper is caught unprepared. His former colleague has turned into an evil leader that attacks Americans and shares secret information. Now he has taken Cooper captive, and he will be tortured and held captive, in order to provide as much information as possible.
Luckily, Raymond Reddington finds out about what has happened, and together with Dembe and some locals, they manage to liberate Cooper and bring him home back safely.
- You can also watch this episode at the NBC website for a couple of months. More information on how you can watch NBC abroad can be found here.
A good episode or not?
Was The Blacklist season 7 episode 4 a good episode? I would say yes! It was way more enjoyable than some of the other episodes I have seen so, far, and except for the annoying Katarina Rostova thing, this was actually very enjoyable!
Now we have some more days to wait before the fifth episode of the season will be released. It is named Norman Devane and deals with a blacklister that kills a lot of kids giving them some sort of deathly injections.
