My guess is that Gabriel killed the yakuza men in the car. That would make it look like Kono did it and just create further tension and chaos between Adam and the yakuza. Just my 2 cents...
I like the action scenes and really enjoy Steve and Danny's bantering in the car, but good grief, what a ridiculous plot device. No law enforcement officer in the world is going to give in to blackmail like that and let loose a monster like Duclair, and with something as easily ditched as shoes? Give me a freaking break. The case of the week was stupid.
I'm with you Hank ~ so bummed about Claire ~ especially since she died trying to save Alex ~ whom I think noone should ever do (he's such a doofus ~ never liked him since Day 1 ~ no offence to Chris Egan) I half expected Noma to die actually thinking Alex was going to return to Claire and she was going to go out in a blaze of glory ~ pretty surprised as Alex never said he loved Noma that I can recall (but then I tend to zone out whenever he's talking) never got why so many fans were into Noma either ~ only thing she did that impressed me was tearing off her wings for Alex. And just out of curiousity how can Noma and Alex be together? Aren't nephilim babies dangerous? I guess I shouldn't have been shocked about Claire after they killed her baby which was her link to Alex ( baby arc felt significant but I guess Vaun had a change of heart?) Gah just bummed to lose her ~ she was really coming into her own ~ only human character I care about ~ like you said what a downer to an otherwise decent finale :'( I am just glad Mikey and Gabriel ended on the same side.
I hope Adam isn't killed off!
I hope next week Catherine says NOOOOOOOOOOOOI dont want to see her again
While the premise was unique (operatives from different agencies teaming up), the story arcs proceeded very much like "Burn Notice"--the finale sets up a cliffhanger, which gets resolved in the next season premiere and gives rise to a new arc. I enjoyed the first two seasons, but when I realized I'd "seen this before", I skipped the third season.
One of the things I really enjoy about this show is the character development over time. As one example, we actually saw Jeff do something nice for Juliette when he took it upon himself to plead her case with Avery. It may be the first decent thing he has done on the show. Layla has turned out to be a pleasant surprise as a character, and she can actually sing. I felt badly for Will, but his being dropped from Luke's label just means that he is available for Rayna to sign, if she has any money left after signing Markus Keene. Luke had appeared to be just a self-centered jerk when he was engaged to Rayna, but he has since shown that he can be decent. He just did not have the backbone to support Will as a gay artist on his label. I could go on, but I think I have made my point. Plus there is the bonus that the characters actually have musical talent.
Last season, Jeff was quite decent a few times with Layla, too, even made himself vulnerable to her. I too like it when the writers make a more 3-D character, instead of consigning one or two to be total villains.
Just watched the second show of the new season, (2015), and None of my family likes the, (New), Gibbs. I have not missed 1 show in 12 seasons, but the changes in Gibbs attitude are not cool. If the kinder, gentler Gibbs continues to evolve in the same fashion, I'm done.
HOW APT THAT A BLACKLISTER NAMED THE "TROLL FARMER" WOULD TURN OUT TO BE A MASTER COMPUTER GEEK:: I can't believe the suspense of this first episode. Kudo's all the way around for James Spader as Raymond Reddington and the other characters, except for Ressler and Samar. What a jerk Ressler is! He is just as guilty as anyone for Lizzy escaping. And Samar showing fear and getting held hostage like a helpless woman who needs to be rescued? What is little Miss Mossad scared of anyway? After all, she is a spy and mass murderer for Israel's Mossad and she enjoyed killing people in Season 2. What gives with her shrinking violet demeanor now? I never liked her character anyway and was hoping that Ressler would have shot and killed her. Liked Lizzy's cleverness and resourcefulness. Her running to the Russian Consulate is a play on both Eric Snowden and his exile in Russian jurisdiction and Julian Assange, who is stuck in a diplomatic mission in the heart of a western city with said western government hot on his trail. This evil black guy who would kill a child makes me want to take him out. Sadly that Dembe could not do it for obvious reasons. Sad to say but I believe that Dembe will be killed off in very short order, as his character has not had any real serious development and he will get the same treatment that the red-shirt security guys on Star Trek the Original Series get: KILLED IN VERY SHORT ORDER. What will happen to Cooper though? He and his wife are still under investigation. I liked the box of goodies that The Blacklist has opened up and there are a number of ways that they can go with this. As someone else asked, isn't it Thursday, October 8 2015 yet??? I must rate The Blacklist: The Troll Farmer as 4.75 stars out of 5.00. Outstanding start right out of the gate!!!
I know this will play out like just another internet rant AND I know it is silly to question fact with this series being what it is - but the cat cub referenced as a leopard cub is not a leopard. Its rather frustrating that the character played by Billy Burke is supposed to be an expert in his field of animal pathology yet something as obvious as a simple species difference is completely ignored by the directors. I'm certain that the cub is a Serval, a substantially smaller cat species in comparison to a leopard, but thats irrelevant. Its just not a leopard, and looks nothing like one. If your show features animals, you can expect that animal lovers will be tuning it, and skipping details like this one seems lazy to me... First picture below is a Serval cub. Distinct for its ears markings and stripe spot combination. They top out at about 40lbs Second is a leopard cub, which has no stripes with the exception of its tail, a rounder face. Leopards can range from 100-200lbs Maybe I've seen too many animal documentries and I'm more in the loop than most - but seeing other comments assures me I am not the only one that noticed. ---end rant--- lol
