Katarina and Liz are teaming up to get the answers they have been searching for their entire lives and in the season opener they need this week’s blacklister Roanoke to help them out. A criminal mastermind that helps other criminals disappear, Roanoke is tasked with helping Katarina with her escape plan, or so the FBI thinks. Turns out Roanoke is living his life out in a nursing home and Katarina has used the man’s name to invoke a plan to kidnap her father and Liz’s grandfather Dom, right from under Red’s nose. Meanwhile the task force is is played like a fiddle in this elaborate scheme all the way up to the bitter end when Liz and Ressler finally connect face to face, literally. Having chosen her side will Liz get the answers she is seeking? Will we finally learn the truth behind Red? Who is the mysterious N-13 agent and what does any of it have to do with the Sikorski Archive? All great questions as we jump both feet in to season 8 of the Blacklist.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.
Welcome to Red’s Rhetoric that part of the show where we relive some of those wise or witty stories from Red that may or may not have greater significance not only in the show but also in life. Then you can vote for your favorite here.
This week our first story comes when Red is enamored by a cat. Our second comes when Red and Cooper have a parenting conversation on how best to raise Liz. Which was your favorite? If you want to rescue all the crying kittens vote #RedCat or if you truly know what lies ahead for Liz vote #RedDestiny.
Season 8 opens with a little jazzy swing from Amon Tobin and the song “Bridge” off his Permutation album from 1998. We finish the episode with the classic and only version of “Landslide” that should ever be played from Fleetwood Mac as Keenler fans scream in delight around the world.
