It seems that Ressler's troubles are finally catching up to him in this episode.
When a gas attack killed many people at a gathering, Red seems that The Informant is the one that's behind it and gets the FBI team, without Liz, to search for him. Ressler and Samarcatches with a suspect that when they catch him, Ressler receives the call from the real Informant and tells him to let the guy go or word of what he did to the National Security Adviser will be revealed.
Of course, Ressler plays to him but stops when Red calls him and wants to talk to him about it. Red had known for a while that Ressler was apart of the informant, hell he didn't think it would last this long. Ressler andRed works together and meets with the judge that happen to get the informant out of trouble and blame someone else. There she tells Red and Ressler and agreed to talk but quickly jumps off out the building, killing herself.
Ressler meets with The Informant in public along with his family and tries to arrest him, but quickly chases him til Red gives the guy a door to the chest. Ressler arrested The Informant and decided to take the consequences of what he did to the NSA, but apparently, the Informant died in a car crash fire on the way to prison, thanks to Red.
Ressler and Red chat for a while about what went down, and Ressler steals a bottle of whiskey, I would believe what he just went through.
In the meantime, Liz has been a real busybody when it comes to search for the man that was in the room whether and Tom was almost killed. She gets to one guy, who happens to be holding money and gets him to take her to his boss. Now the guy that she meets is the one who happens to be dancing and mashing stuff during that fall finale episode (just to remind you all).
As Liz talks to the guy and demands answers to her questions, the guy attacks her again. But this time, she kills him as he falls into the glass-metal coffee table.
"The Informant" was a terrific comeback story after the Liz episode the week before.Finally, we get a Ressler episode and this one I did enjoy as he tries to break and fix what he calls a crime. But everyone breaks the rules at some point in their lives, Cooper, Liz and yes even Red. There were a lot of good moments, mostly between Ressler and Red. Overall, I give this episode an 8/10.
You can catch The Blacklist as they celebrate they're 100th episode Wednesday, Jan. 17th at 8/7c on NBC.
