Good episode, with a small dose of Hollywood propaganda
29 April 2017 | by m-fallon67See all my reviews

Good episode, but I find it a little off track, with Mr. Kaplan, being Reddington's new enemy. It works well but getting back to focusing on the Blacklist is what drives the show. The blacklist person they did use in the show, Phililomena, was support for Mr. Kaplan. The one thing about the show that irritated me, was the writer of the show, slipping in a subliminal propaganda message for gun control,that TV shows do from time to time. The character, Navabi,is being questioned,by a higher up, and talked about Islamaphobia, stating,"last year more than 180,000 Americans were killed by"gun violence , and only 94 by terrorists." Hollywood writers subliminally put this propaganda garbage in TV shows all the time, hoping they can influence a sleeping, ignorant viewer.Yes, this is a Hollywood fantasy TV, show, but the biased spoken line by the writer is real, by using the code words "gun violence". The truth is about 33,000 people died by the use of a firearm, in the last year available, 2013. Two thirds of that number were suicides, and only one-third were homicides. Many of those were justifiable homicides. (Self defense related) These statistics are on the Uniform Crime Report .Be aware.
