"The Cook (No. 56)"
As Liz continues to search for Tom's killers, she gets the help from Red that leads to the help from one of the smartest tech guy he knows, a kid. As the kid hacks into the eye, it not only had information but it triggers a GPS for their location. Red gets everyone out that included Liz, who wants to take them on, but he wouldn't let that happen.
Liz thinks that Red is helping because he wants to hide something, of course, he denies it but then later tells her that the suitcase contains a secret he must keep secret. But if Liz is going to help him, she's going to know that secret.
Meantime, the task force is looking for the Cook, a Blacklister who happens to kill people by setting arson fires in homes. They get help from a known arsonist, who's up for early release. With his help, the clues lead to someone that they had no idea, someone who worked in the Catholic church. As soon as they head off to the latest victim's house and but instead of killing his victim, he kills himself by setting himself on fire.
"The Cook (No. 56)" was a very good episode. I thought the storyline of Red and Liz was good and developed very well. I can't get enough of how Red doesn't know Star Wars and such. And not to mention given the kid's mother four pet spiders, but the number four means death. Oops! Overall, I give this episode an 8/10.
"The Invisible Hand (No. 63)"
The FBI gets help from Reddington to take on the group known as The Invisible Hand, who targets and buries their them alive in a known abandoned chemical planet. When they captured the leader and one of the members, Reddington gets to talk to him about the whereabouts of a man known as The Toy Maker. The Toy Maker has helped with the man who killed Tom, let alone helped build that glass eye.
Meanwhile, Liz goes after a man that Tom was hunting before he died, that turns out to be her grandfather. But she doesn't know that still, and he plays her pretty well.
But Red gets a tip about who the man that killed Tom is and might be part of a huge group that's of some federal or state cops. Pretty much on the money when it came at the end when that detective breaks in Liz's apartment and calls his boss about that Liz isn't backing off the case. The man that happens to be from Ian Garvey, who's a U.S. Marshall.
"The Invisible Hand" is another well written and best-directed episode. I couldn't get enough of the shots from the field that kept creepy at the time and amazing all at the same time. Got to give credit to Andrew McCarty on his directing the episode. Also, the episode kept me interesting and left me shocked at the end to see that Ian is a U.S. Marshall. And not to mention the Liz and Red scene with Toy Maker and Liz threatening him not to call her sweetheart. Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
