Trivia

Santiago Meza Lopez, who has been dubbed the 'Stew maker' ( "El Pozolero" in Spanish), confessed to disposing of at least 300 bodies over a decade by dumping them in graves and pouring acid on them to let them dissolve underground. This episode's title character is similar to the real person. See more »

If you weren't creeped-out by "The Stewmaker" you're numb to drama..,
5 October 2016 | by uqobSee all my reviews

What's not to love about this episode? Essentially, a serial killer, played by the impeccable character actor bad-guy Tom Noonan, who disappears people in the hundreds. Elizabeth Keen's psychological sparring to buy herself more time and Reddington's casual execution of vengeance, combined with an above average cinematography, put to an evocative soundtrack. This ep stands up to a 2nd and 3rd viewing and set the stage for a great spy/espionage thriller, with more twists and turns than a crazy straw. This and many other eps is one of the foundational episodes that make this series a stone-cold addiction. Lots of great acting from Spader and Boone.
