The Blacklist - The Dockery Affair

"The Dockery Affair" is the rare episode of The Blacklist that doesn't focus on either a Blacklister or a direct threat to Raymond Reddington (James Spader). While the episode's B-story does continue the season thread of Wujing (Chin Han) putting together a gang of aggrieved parties by recruiting Vesco (Stacy Keach), a thread which conveniently does not show us how Red responds to Vesco's questions, the main storyline involves the death of a judge which Red's evidence guy Herbie Hambright (Alex Brightman) finds suspicious despite overwhelming evidence pointing to an obvious suspect. Turns out he's right as the true killer has far more bodies buried than just the judge. It's a fine standalone episode, but being only marginally tied to the season arc there's nothing of note you'd miss skipping this one.
