Don’t get me wrong, i love The Blacklist. It is one of my favorite shows of all time. The Red Reddington character and the whole main story line is amazing. But, it is as we say in Portuguese: “Tudo o que é bom começa e tem um fim”, which means “All the things that are so good must end someday”, and all i want is that The Blacklist ends in the best possible way.
The main story-line of the show was about Red Reddington relationship with Elizabeth Keen, and we are about to find out all about it in the following two episodes. Mr Kaplan deserves to be the number one on the Reddington’s list and the show can and should end now, after 4 good/excellent seasons. Let’s face it: there is no much story to cover about it. All the moves they choose to do besides cancel it, will probably blow the show.
But there is another option
Yes, from my personal view, there is only one alternative, if the show don’t get canceled: bring Catarina Rostova to the party and do all the fifth season around them. This is, in my opinion, the only way that the show can continue without getting boring. It could be good to see Mr. Kaplan teaming up with Catarina Rostova against Reddington.
NBC will say something about the future of the show in a few days. let’s wait
