The Blacklist - Laszlo Jankowics

In an episode where the task force looks to take down an insane dealer in psychedelic drugs, The Blacklist continues to tease the possible return of Mr. Kaplan. While the cliffhanger seems to suggest Kaplan is still alive, it seems also quite possible someone is gaslighting Reddington (James Spader) and taking on the identity of his old associate for their own reasons (possibly with inside help?). Whether or not it is Kaplan, or some new threat, it's obvious the threat of this new player is quite real and whoever it might be they seem to have far too much knowledge of Raymond's organization.

The Blacklister of the week (Alexander Pobutsky) is really only notable for being completely nuts after frying his own brain on his product. Reddington sends the FBI after the man in hopes that it will lead him to Kaplan's protégé, now working for Jankowics. However, Reddington's interview with Clara Moore (Winsome Brown) offers no new insights into what is going on or the truth about the sudden return of Mr. Kaplan. The only other notable aspect of the episode is Alina (Laura Sohn) facing a hard truth about her current fitness for field work suggesting more possible changes to the cast.
