A few wires, a radio transmission device, 16 ounces of semtex and one finger is all it takes to finally take down Reddington, or is it?

A pound of flesh, and eye for an eye, Revenge isn’t a passion as Reddington once said, it is a disease and right now Liz is the one who is sick. In this week’s non numbered Episode "16 Ounces", we pick up right after the death of the woman claiming to be Katarina Rostova. Except the crime scene is clean and Red and Liz are nowhere to be found. Liz begins her revenge quest by turning in her badge and then systematically saying goodbye to each member of the task force while at the same time using them for her personal gain. She is able to steal 16 ounces of semtex to build a bomb to kill Reddington once and for all for taking her “mother” away.
Liz’s PI is now in deep with Liz since she was the one that planted the bomb that ultimately failed. That failure, that revenge disease almost cost Liz the one person she holds most dear, and certainly destroyed any friendship she may have with Aram in the future. Thankfully Cooper and Reddington, Liz’s two father figures in her life, still want to save her from this dark path by making her the top of The Blacklist. How will things pan out? Tune in next week.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.
