Raymond 'Red' Reddington: An ice castle in the air, the best and the brightest frozen solid. I'm intrigued.
Sir Crispin Crandall: You know what these are? They're horseshoe crabs. Decades ago, it was discovered that their plasma contained limulus amebocyte lysate, which can be used to detect bacterial endotoxins. I found a way to synthesize it.

Pretty much perfection for a single episode ..
6 November 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Got to give credit to this production team. Just one season ago, they had only two arcs to work with (the Blacklister of the week, and the mysterious ever-perplexing Liz backstory) and maybe (no complaints from me) those were wearing a bit thin.

Now they have at least a half dozen plates spinning the air, just like those old acts on the Ed Sullivan show. And, joy of joys, they all work.

This episode is not merely great, it is also subtle. The only clue you will get of how entertained you actually are is that by the 30 minute mark you will think you have seen an hours worth of action, and you will not believe there is more still to come.

And keep your eye on Ryan Eggold. I was very unhappy when, in an earlier arc, he was "banished" and seemed to be leaving the show. This guy is mesmerizing. Prediction: someday he will have his own series.
