In season 5, the chase for the suitcase and the content finally was revealed. The secret that Reddington didn’t want to get out in the open, finally got to see daylight. Elizabeth and her sister, Jennifer, learned that Mr. Reddington, their father, isn’t really Reddington. The man they’ve been working with for so long is an imposter. How this information is going to influence their relationship, is something you have to discover in the next season.

Elizabeth (Megan Boone) didn’t only get to know the truth about Reddington (James Spader), but also that she has a sister. Together with Jennifer (Fiona Dourif), her sister, they start the search for clues as they want to know the real identity of the elusive Mr. Reddington. Of course, this has to be done under the radar as the king of crime has enough connections to make any evidence or information disappear. They can only trust each other and have to call in a lot of favors to get somewhere with this ‘investigation’. The FBI agent is prepared to go far and wide, even by throwing away her own principles and do some darker things.

Agent Navabi (Mozhan Marnò) is recovering well from her injuries after almost drowning, or so it seems. Her relationship with Aram (Amir Arison) is going well, but the surfacing health issues surely bring some pressure in their lives. Add some impeding threats for the whole team and you can witness how this small corps is more than just colleagues. When Reddington gets into a possibly lethal situation, Harold Cooper (Harry Lennix) does everything in his power to help the criminal and even agent Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff), someone who always was careful around Reddington, is going all the way.

Just like before, this season has a main plotline and cases per episode, mostly related to this storyline. More than ever, it feels like everything was intertwined and had a part in the bigger picture. Overall, the pace of the different episodes are enjoyable and you’re able to follow quite well with the parade of side characters, even though you might have missed previous seasons. Although the main storyline has some plot twists, certain decisions might leave you with a wry feeling. During the last few episodes of this season, some questions popped up about certain characters.

With Blacklist already having six seasons, the core of the actors already know each other so well and it shows on the screen. There are several heartbreaking moments during the series, which feel genuine because of the bond between everyone. The chemistry between Megan and James really is something else, and beautiful to see. It feels like the acting is improving with each season. The character development is still one of the elements of the series that is on the foreground and you won’t be disappointed during these episodes.

This series always has a lot of extras and this season isn’t any different. You can enjoy deleted or extended scenes and commentary from the cast & crew. If you’re looking for something funny, you will be able to get your laughs from the gag reel. Even more, there are also behind the scenes footage added and if you purchased the Blu-ray version, there will also be a part about dark figures and their secrets and deceptions. More than enough to discover, that’s for sure.

Conclusion

This might be the first time that the relationship between Elizabeth and Raymond has been shaking this much as its being built on lies and deception from both sides. The episodes are a nice combination of the search for the real identity of Reddington and the continuation of the Blacklist. Where before the story felt like it could have been shorter, this isn’t the case for these episodes, so get ready for some action-filled scenes and hello & goodbyes.
