The Blacklist - The Kilgannon Corporation

The fall of Raymond Reddington (James Spader) allowed others to swoop in and take over various aspects of his criminal network. "The Kilgannon Corporation" examines one piece of this as an Irishman with less care for his cargo runs into some very public trouble while attempting to smuggle people across international borders. Despite everyone's distaste for human trafficking, Red makes a valid argument that someone will provide the service and if that criminal doesn't take care in the lives of the refugees they are moving illegally there are going to be far more dead bodies. The choice to put Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) in undercover heightens Red's interest in the case, especially after the FBI looses him in transport. While a bit on the nose, the conversation between Red and Liz (Megan Boone) continues to better flesh-out the connection between the two men.

The misadventures of Tom (Ryan Eggold) and the suitcase continue to dominate the show's B-stories. Tom finally tracks down his latest lead only to end up with a couple dead bodies on his hands and a gun pointed at his head. It looks like the show is finally ready to focus more on the suitcase and its contents leading into the show's Fall finale (which doesn't necessarily mean will learn just whose bones are in the suitcase and why they are so important).
