Olivia Olson is a former Wall Street exec turned to a life of opportunity in crime after the collapse in 2008. Olivia looks to back certain nefarious or criminal masterminds that can make her more money by squashing the competition. Think corporate raider but for the criminals of the world. She is targeting a construction company that is having a fundraiser to raise money for Parkinsons. Interesting since we see Red shooting up and taking pills to control or do something to his body.
The real reason Olivia is on The Blacklist this week is because she is also working with Anna McMahon on whatever the plot is against the United States. So Red once again leverages the task force to dig up dirt on what the consipricy is all about, that is until he finds out he was robbed, by ARAM?!?!? Turns out Aram stole $60 Million dollars of Red's money as ransom to get Red to take him to Smara. But while on a plane ride to nowhere, Red convinces Aram that she needs to know you are safe to know she made the right choice.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.
The music in the show is also in purgatoy this week as we only had one song again. At the end of the episode during the closing sequences while Ressler talks to his CIA contact, Red and Cooper talk about The Third Estate and Aram talks to his clock we hear “All There Is” from Gregory Alan Isakov who has been featured on the show already this season
