Anybody else watch this? I had the same issues like last week: boring blacklist plot and interesting Red subplot. The "Harold has cancer" subplot seems kinda cliche and predictable. To be honest, I had the same issues last year around this point last year, as the Blacklist stories were very boring and poorly written.

This show is becoming "average" to outright boring, after the midseason with Keen becoming more distant towards Red.

Just got caught up with the last 4 episodes including this one.

The last few episodes including the conclusion to the big Luther Braxton 2-parter were kind of hit or miss for me. I thought the conclusion to the Braxton arc was pretty disappointing after a really good start.

"The Deer Hunter" was ultimately a pretty forgettable villain that's why she was Number 93 I guess. I didn't really care about her motive for the killings. A lot of the Blacklist villains of the week have been forgettable, but that is a problem you can expect from this show since it's procedural 1st and they have to keep most of the plot self contained.

I may not have been paying full attention, but was it actually said that Harold has cancer? He's been walking with a limp & cane since he was injured last season, but I wasn't aware that he was sick as well.

I wish Lizzie would just got over it about the fulcrum thing. I'm not enjoying her being distant from Red.
Spoiler:

Hopefully Tom being back will add something next week.

I think they have run out of plausible reasons for Lizzie to trust Red, which will make their continued relationship very difficult and awkward unless they have a big reveal coming.

I am still watching but this is not must-see television anymore, like it was for much of season one.

Boring episode. Just as others have said, not "must see" TV anymore and I let the episodes sit one DVR for a few days.

Felt like I was watching CSI, or Criminal Minds, or every other procedural cop show. I was ok with that during season one since it sets up the premise and characters, but the show needs to evolve (not go backwards). Grimm has done a good job transitioning from a procedural to a serial drama.

Also, half the dialogue for this show now is just Red and Elizabeth going back and forth about trust or "I can't tell you because you won't understand." Just tell the bitch already!

Easily the worst episode of the series so far. Hopefully things pick back up soon so the season finale isn't the worthy episode left.
