Last week’s episode of NBC’s “The Blacklist” promised to finally explain some of the mystery behind Lizzy’s husband Tom Keen and his creepy spy box. Of course we spent the whole episode on the cusp of finding out what’s the story with that guy, but by the end were left more confused than ever. The body man for James Spader’s Red seemed to be the contact Tom met with which implicated the whole spy box as a false flag.
While we wrapped our heads around that Lizzy and the FBI hunted down Tom’s supposed mistress. She evaded them for most of the episode, but like every bad guy on the show, she eventually was captured by the bureau. When presented a photo of Tom she denied ever knowing the person. So does that mean Tom is innocent , or isn’t that just what Tom’s secret lover would say if she was confronted by his picture. The show is having it both ways in this one, and the viewer is left being strung along on this plot device for the rest of the season.
Tonight’s all new episode of “The Blacklist” guest stars Robert Sean Leonard, who will always be the guy from “Dead Poets Society” to me as a biological terrorist named Frederick Barnes. Every week Lizzy seems to be hunting for “the most dangerous person” on the planet, and this guy fits the bill. Check out the preview below to see the sort of stuff Lizzy and Red will be dealing with tonight.
From the preview and official description of the episode it seems like rocky seas ahead for Agent Elizabeth Keen.
After a chemical attack on a subway, Liz (Megan Boone) and the FBI search for the man responsible. Liz reluctantly calls on Red (James Spader) for his help after she finds her search for the next person on the blacklist, brilliant scientist Frederick Barnes (guest star Robert Sean Leonard), heading to a dead end. Meanwhile, Liz wants nothing to do with Red after he implicated Tom (Ryan Eggold).
The hunt for the “Blacklist” worst criminal on the planet starts tonight at 10pm.
