Did You Know?


Dembe has a very low number (10) on the Blacklist. The Blacklist as described by Reddington in The Blacklist: Pilot (2013) is comprised of criminals he knew about but that the FBI either did not know about or were unable to capture. In Reddingtion's words, he'd been cultivating a list for over twenty years that contained politicians, mobsters, hackers, and spies. While the general impression early on was the list was only criminals he would pursue, the list was not exclusive to only criminals Reddington would turn in. The list also contained friendlies such as number 10 Dembe here, number 4 Mr. Kaplan in The Blacklist: Mr. Kaplan (No. 4) (2017), and number 7 Tom Keen in The Blacklist: Tom Keen (No. 7) (2015). All of them had very low numbers. See more »


Dembe, a very capable fighter, is shot in the leg by the crossbow. He manages to transfer the bolt to the hunter, but then instead of finishing him off or at least taking the crossbow, he just runs away. See more »
