This week on The Blacklist Aram takes center stage as he goes undercover working for The Wellstone Agency, a group that arranges interpreters for criminals. Turns out Liz hired Wellstone to broker a deal with a criminal as she continues to build out her empire. In a nice twist on the interpreter angle it turns out the head of the Agency is deaf and Aram needs to sign for his life as Red and the Agency leader broker an arrangement. We also learned that Aram can speak 6 other languages and Latin but that’s only useful for talking to the Pope. Meanwhile Agent Park aka she-hulk strikes again as she goes after a man that torched and killed one of her best friends. Much like the rest of the task force she reaches out to Reddington to cover up her transgression.
But the big focus of the episode was all about Glen, and saying goodbye to the late great Clark Middleton. Red and Dembe arrive at Glen’s house where we finally meet his mysterious mother Paula. She informs Steven (Red) and Bill (Dembe) that Glen had passed and that he had one last stick it to Red letter for him. His dying wish was to have Huey Lewis, yes that Huey Lewis to play his funeral and have his ashes spread at the statue of liberty. Which Steven, Bill and Huey do over a heartfelt eulogy by Reddington.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.

This week we just listen to Red's eulogy of Glen one more time.
While Red and the head of Wellstone chat as Aram signs for his life "No Turning Back" by Claire Guerreso is heard. Later at Glen’s life celebration we hear "Get Up Let's Go" by Richard Myhill followed by a classic Huey Lewis and The News track as we finish up at the party "We're Not Here for a Long Time, We're Here for a Good Time".
