While the Task Force investigates a series of suspicious police shootings, Agent Ressler is distracted by increasing external pressures. With his back up against the wall, Red drafts Tom in executing an elaborate plan to help re-establish his criminal reputation.
Number on The BlacklistEdit

- A thrall was a slave and/or serf during the Viking Age.
- Why did Thrall not know about the bulletproof glass on the police car?
- Why did Thrall use police officers for the contract killings?
- A: Around the time the episode came out, police shootings and brutality were commonplace and heavily controversial. This episode reflects this.
- Will Waterday Financial be shut down?
- Will the other contract assassins be arrested?
- Donald Ressler
- Liz’s, Cooper’s, and Red’s conversations show the position that Ressler is trapped in.
- Ressler's statements on the police are hypocritical considering his past actions.
- A: He still has a strong moral code. He's never taken an innocent life and killed plenty of corrupt and evil people. His statement was more about cops killing innocent people.
- What is the background concerning the “poor man and red button” story?
- Harold Cooper
- How did Cooper know about the jet plane?
- Mitchell Hatley
- Mitchell Hatley’s ability to blackmail Ressler can backlash. As Red said in “Mr. Kaplan: Conclusion”, Mitchell Hatley’s career relies on his ability to avoid publicity.
