The Blacklist S07 E05 (Norman Devane) review

With a few days of delay, I just got to watch the fifth episode of The Blacklist season 7 titled Norman Devane. I watched the episode on Netflix and could watch it without being interrupted by ads or other stupid stuff. If you want to know more about how you can watch The Blacklist season 7 on Netflix, click the link and follow the instructions.

The fifth episode of The Blacklist might have been the highlight of the season so far. It was totally without Katarina Rostova (whom I find to be quite annoying), and instead, it was quite an ugly and evil episode discovering how Norman Devane did experiments on youth to test his medicines. In other words, first he made people sick, and then he tested his medicines to see if he could make them well again afterward.

Norman Devane review

As we see Norman, it was actually a quite disgusting feeling I had. It is one thing to do evil to other evil people, or at least, to adults, but when we see harmless and nice youth being “taken care of” by evil blacklisters, then it makes me feel a strong discomfort on the inside. So, I didn’t feel to well as I followed Norman Devane testing his sicknesses and later his medicine on the same people. But, I still liked it, and it was a breath of fresh air.

What is Norman Devane’s connection to Raymond Reddington/Elizabeth Keen?

This is a brilliant question and one I asked myself throughout the episode. I first thought the obvious reason would be to make Elizabeth or Agnes sick, for then to come with some great solution (by Katarina) that would help and save the family. But, I doubt Katarina would actually hurt Elizabeth or Agnes, so I quickly dismissed that part.

But, maybe she wanted to harm Raymond in such a way? If she would be the one with the injection that could make him well again, maybe she could force him to speak? And, we also get a feeling throughout the episode that something actually might be wrong with Raymond, so maybe he was given some sort of sickness as he was stabbed, or during the “treatment” at the hospital?

Ressler gets to know that everything doesn’t seem to be okay with Raymond, but he doesn’t share any of the information with Liz. However, I have a feeling he might share the information with her at a later moment in the season.

Where does the hunt go from here?

Aram decides to go on a date once again with the married woman, and the woman makes them crash a wedding on their date. By a coincidence (of course it isn’t), they pick up the name tags of Mr. and Mrs. Bloom, and because of this, they get the name of a contact that was meant to be given to Raymond Reddington. This cannot be a coincidence, but who is really this woman who Aram is dating? Is she hired by Raymond? Or by Katarina? It will be interesting to see how this part of the story will progress.

The next episode is named Dr. Lewis Poweel, and in it we will meat a brutal killer. But, at the end of the promo, he sounds like Darth Vader and sits in a wheelchair. Or maybe that is someone else?

I guess we have a lot to look forward to in the sixth season of The Blacklist season 7 as well. I will watch it on Netflix as quickly as it is made available. What about you? Where are you watching the newest episodes of The Blacklist?

And what do you believe with happen in the upcoming episodes of the show? I would love to hear your thoughts!
