    This was probably my favourite episode to date! I don't know why I tend to enjoy the chemical attack episodes in lots of different procedural shows, and this one was no exception. There was a lot of suspense and the storyline was substantiated and very interesting.



    I did enjoy the fact that it was not all about killing people, but rather trying to find a cure. It was certainly a bizarre thinking-style.



    All up, very satisfied with the episode! I highly recommend it!moreless

    Another fantastic episode from the blacklist, i thoroughly enjoyed this episode and i feel like there getting better with every one, i cannot wait to the finale as i'm sure it will be filled with the same suspense and twists and turns in episodes such as this. All the characters were played wonderfully again and the plot was well thought out. The killer Fredrick Barnes was played well and was given a good story and a background to why he kills and Lizzy and red find it hard to work together after all that's happened. No major spoilers in this episode to why red chose Lizzy or to any of the developing plots however there were a few fantastically played out scenes between red and Lizzy showing just how complex their relationship is and the question throughout the episode is whether it can be salvaged or not after the conflict over tom keen. So to sum up an all around great performance with the same great cast and i am truly looking forward to watching the next couple of episodes and seeing if they maintain the same standard and quality as the ones before!moreless

      Liz: Is that meant to be directed at me?
      Red: Aren't you presumptuous?
