The Blacklist continues to be very exciting, and it’s interesting to see how Snyder is really going back and revisiting the events of the first story arc here. Pearl comes face to face with Bloch again, and there’s also the return of Hattie at the end. But it’s more than just returning villains, all of the character stuff between Pearl, Henry and Skinner is hearkening back to then. It seems like this arc is a culmination of a lot of what Snyder has been doing, the look Pearl and Henry took through their photo album was a sign of that, of how some things have changed, but Pearl herself hasn’t, and how she can’t escape her past. Skinner’s outburst at Pearl, explaining why he ‘turned’ her was also very interesting, does he mean it? Or is he in love with her? Hmmm. It was also cool to see the events of ‘Lord Of Nightmares’ referenced in this issue, it looks like they are happening pretty much contemporaneously, I wonder if they will link even more, like will Dracula take control of the LA Coven at some point? Probably not, I don’t think Snyder will get that continuity heavy, even if it is only 2 titles.
