The Blacklist Ep. 1.20 “The Kingmaker”: Weak Story Brings Out Strong Performances

1 May 2014 12:02 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Blacklist, Season 1, Episode 20:  “The Kingmaker”

Written by J. R. Orci & Lukas Reiter

Directed by Karen Gaviola

Airs Monday nights at 10 pm Est on NBC

Last week The Blacklist gave audiences a file folder with evidence to prove Red Reddington was really someone Liz Keen should hate.  This week the evidence in that folder is revealed and it, like the episode, is completely underwhelming.

My problem with this show is that it sets wonderful ideas up but fails to pay them off in a timely manner.  The show sets up in the pilot that Tom Keen is a bad guy and they don’t pay off that idea until episode 15 or 16 of the season.  Another plot thread that has been neglected is the one involving Red’s secret that the government is so afraid of.  What is the problem with letting the audience in on what Red’s bargaining chip is? »
