Elizabeth Keen has lost her father, her grandfather, her husband, and according to Liz her mother all because of one man, RED. What started out as a list to catch the worst of the worst Elizabeth has found herself to be enemy numero uno at the very top of The Blacklist. As Liz looks to escape into hiding to plan her next move against her on again off again crime fighting partner, she looks to take down Red’s empire from the inside. See Liz has a list of her own and she is doing everything she can to get these big names to flip. Names like Brimely, Chuck, Morgan, Rutteger, Hede, even Marvin Gerard yes all of them are targets
But remember Red’s cardinal rule, value Loyalty above all else. Every single attempt Liz makes this week to try and get one of the Syndicate to flip fails at every turn including even the man that went to prison for Red. Luckily there is a new man on the payroll in Skip Hadley and he knows how to play the long game for now. With Liz finally thinking like a criminal she convinces skip to flip and as a result steals $41M US from Red, scoops up her daughter and flies away to fight another day. Of course not before she hooks up with Ressler for a one night stand.
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 feature two great scenes from Red himself that part words of wisdom. Then each week you can vote for your favorite here.
This week our first story comes when Red talks about his health. Our second comes when Red hatches a plan. Which was your favorite? If you are very much not on the cool side vote #RedAsprin or if you want to write your own story vote #RedSteel.
Two tunes this week. First we hear "Ruins" from aYia as the team arrives at the train station looking for Liz. Then later in the episode we hear a cover/mashup of "One Way or Another" from Until The Ribbon Breaks.
