'The Blacklist' Season 7 Episode 11: Aram's lack of resolve has fans calling him 'weak'
Spoilers for 'The Blacklist' Season 7 Episode 11 'Victoria Fenberg'
With Aram's ever so complicated relationship with Elodie Radcliffe constantly convolution and twisting in the most bizarre ways, 'The Blacklist' fandom had thought they had seen everything, but not quite. In its Season 7B premiere aka Episode 11 titled 'Victoria Fenberg' we see Aram make some extremely difficult decisions surrounding the adulterous affair and right when fans thought there was going to be some ultimatum on that front, things got even more confusing and now the fandom isn't sure what to believe in.
We meet Aram on tonight's episode as he is in bed with Elodie. Their pillow talk is less romance, more shop talk for Aram as Elodie can't stop asking questions about his job. Aram gets a little suspicious but before that can be addressed, Elodie's reasonably older husband has a heart attack and collapses on the stairs. And as he watches Elodie rush to the older man's rescue and call emergency help to keep him alive, it gets him thinking how wrong it is to wish for the poor old man to die.
Aram tries talking about this with Liz, but their case of forged stolen artifacts gets in the way. So he takes the call himself and shows up at Elodie's right at the end of episode, to say no matter how amazing it is to make love in a rocketship as they have in the past, there's nothing good about making love to her in the room and wishing her husband who's on a ventilator in the next room, dies.
The guilt and secrecy are too much for Arma to take, it's obvious, and fans couldn't have supported his decision more. Taking to social media, the fandom touted how their favorite FBI agent doing the right thing was an emotional relief for them. "Way to go Aram! So proud of him right now.... Hope he sticks to his guns on this," a fan wrote on Twitter.

But the episode ends with Aram lying naked in bed with Elodie's bare body wrapped around him and now everybody is confused about the status of their relationship.
"Poor Aram. He needs a good woman. He deserves better than this," wrote a fan on Twitter, while another chimed in: "Aram is gonna have to watch his back now... just in case."
One fan believes "This is good. Breaking up is the right move. Though I worry this won't be the last we see of Shady McBlackWidow." But watching Aram return to the same cycle of sneaking around behind backs, a fan remarked: "I'm sorry, was this part of Aram's break up plan? He's so weak"
The snark didn't stop at that as one fan compared Aram's lack of resolve to Red's quirky ways of digging to the core of an ongoing investigation and getting suspects to talk, writing: "Okay, so Red walking in on a dude in the bathtub is no longer the most awkward thing in this episode."
'The Blacklist' Season 7 airs on Fridays at 8 pm only on NBC.
