The Blacklist - Benjamin T. Okara

The latest case, involving someone killing using secret DARPA technology to murder the scientists who designed it, takes a backseat to several ongoing B-stories involving someone framing Harold Cooper (Harry Lennix) for murder, Alina's (Laura Sohn) health and a bombshell dropped on her marriage, and trouble for Raymond Reddington (James Spader) regarding Dembe's (Hisham Tawfiq) work for the FBI. The later causes Red to question his return again when Dembe's life is put in danger by a potential ally and he's forced to choose whether to protect Dembe or allow him to come to harm. It's unfortunate that the Blacklister and the invention get bumped for so many of these other stories that aren't nearly as interesting (although the Dembe storyline does end in a tease as to what Reddington left his former comrade in a box).
