Robert Vesco (an actual person in real life), is apparently alive and well and in search of the treasure from the De La Cruz, a ship thought to have sunk off the Florida coast in the 1700's. It also turns out that he was once upon a time Red's mentor teaching him everything he knew until Vesco swindled Red for everything he had. Vesco and Red team up this week to find the treasure buried below an opera house in New Orleans with the help of Red's merry band of misfits.
Elswhere Aram and Samar are contemplating their relationship as Mossad is contemplating theirs with Samar. Turns out that Aram leaked some info to Levi, Samar's Mossad handler, that triggered a token be called on Samar's life. The Osterman Umbrealla Company is tasked with taking out spies and agents from agencies around the world, and they have their sights set on Samar.
Red however jumps into action and is able to save Samar from the hands of the company, kills Levi for putting her in the situation, and makes his bestie in Aram hate his guts forever. See Red has sent Samar away, for good, never to be found again and it breaks Aram's and all of our hearts in the process. This is one episode of The Blacklist fans will never forget.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.
We are treated to a few selections from the Barber of Seville as well as a great tune from Les Brown & His Band of Renown. To kick of Red’s welcome back party we hear the remastered version of “Bruised Bones” from Les and Band. Then as the old cons discuss their treasure hunt plan we hear “Steal of Fortune” by Fuzzman, Whammy Boy. To close up the first hour as Aaram woos Samar back over champagne we hear “In The Arms” by Lucy Schwartz. The Second hour “Love Like There’s No Tomorrow” is heard from The War and Treaty playing as Samar and Aram say goodbye and it plays out all the way to the end and the last time we will see Mozhan as Samar.
