Case Profile for Dembe Zuma and Requiem

After months of searching for Dembe Red and the team look for the Sanctum Corporation, a group that specializes in hiding people better than witness protection ever could. They hid someone close to Dembe that could help Red get the answers he needs as to who poisoned him. However when both Dembe and Red find out the truth, we are plunged into a retrospective of Mr. Kaplan’s past to understand her current plight, and her attempt to get revenge against her former employer.

Katarina returns to give us another glimpse into the events that led up to our current story of how Red entered into Liz’s life, including the first time Katarina met Mr. Kaplan, an explanation as to why no one knows whom Liz’s dad really is, and another peak at that fateful night at Cape May. We also learn about Sam and how Liz came to be in his custody leading to the hour that Mr. Kaplan and Red meet face to face and begin building his now current criminal empire. This two-hour return of The Blacklist had us on the edge of our seats so listen in for all the details.

Be sure to answer our profiling question of the week: Who’s side will Dembe take in the war with Kaplan?. Visit our feedback page to leave a response or call +1 (304) 837-2278.

The Music of Dembe Zuma and Requiem

Surprisingly no actual songs of note that I could pick out were in Dembe Zuma, all the music was saved for the second hour Requiem. We hear two versions of I Will Survive, the original from Gloria Gaynor in Kate’s past as it transitions to the present and the cover version from Cake in the present working in the hotel room. We also heard Sophie B Hawkins “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” during the bar scene with Annie Kaplan. We then hear “Small Town” from Blues Saraceno as Kate contemplates moving to Amarillo with Annie. And then the finale at the ice rink we hear Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” which was a perfect ending.

You can hear these songs via the official Blacklist playlist on Spotify or the same playlist recreated by us on Apple Music.
