Welcome to F*ck Yeah Liz and Ressler! This is a blog about Elizabeth Keen and Donald Ressler from The Blacklist. - CLOSED - Thanks to all our followers and. A Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he was the lead agent Harold Cooper and reveals that due to his suspicions about Liz's relationship with .. Ressler asks where Agent Keen is and Reddington says she was taken by. Ever since Raymond Reddington asked for Elizabeth Keen in the first Now that she finally remembers everything, the former FBI agent will do There is also the question of Liz's relationship with Ressler and Reddington.
Is this still a possibility considering the twist that you have in store for us? That makes me smile. There is a big camp that [believes the] Raymond Reddington imposter theory, that Red is not who he says he is. This season, we have really motored ahead. Some episodes were heavy in that mythology than others. Kaplan episode was certainly an episode that had a lot of big moves in it.
This last episode has some big moves. Will Dom play a bigger role next season? He definitely is part of the landscape and occupies an important space. You see that play out on screen. He is somebody who obviously does not like Reddington. They have a fraught relationship. And can you talk about the reason why she went over the bridge? Even with her dead, her plan is marching forward. That was the most compelling thing, that she was willing to die to carry out the promise that she had made all these years ago to keep Liz safe.
And so is she really dead? It would be hard to bring her back, but with that said, I love Susan Blommaert so much. We blew up Alan Alda, who is a TV legend. Sometimes you have to listen to the show and where it wants to go.
That was a really hard death in the show, and this one as well. If we were smart enough to find a way to bring her back that felt real, fantastic, but I think her tombstone has been written.
Circling back to the task force, Laurel Hitchin dies right after closing the investigation. Will that raise some red flags? That depends on how her death is handled. Prescott gets rid of her body. Even Julian Gale would probably be very curious to know what happened to the woman who just shut him down. Even with the investigation closed, with the news out there, will the task force be disbanded?
The news is out there in a closed grand jury investigation, which is containable. The bigger problem is that Reddington has really no resources. Baz was killed, Mr. Will we see Red rebuilding next year? Does Liz join him in that rebuilding? What does that look like? We almost want to step back in terms of who the character was and how much joy he takes in his life and how he moves and operates.
I would imagine that he might go after people that could help him reboot his empire. Red has an escape plan with that island. The ruse is unsuccessful, even though he cuts his arm with a broken champagne glass without showing pain, because Dechambou is aware that the Courier kills both parties to any failed transaction.
After Phelps escapes, he and Meera Malik lead a search team to his house, where they discover he has taken refuge. After a firefight, he manages to enter Phelps' house, but finds it empty. The agents pursue Phelps through the forest, but he dies just before they capture him. As the rescued Seth Nelson is being loaded into an ambulance, he complements Elizabeth Keen on a job well done. He goes with Liz to the hotel room booked using the credit card of Gina Zanetakos 's alias Shubie Hartwell.
As he is on the phone coordinating the search for Gina, he does not notice that she is hiding in the elevator, behind some innocent people. Once Gina is alone in the elevator with him she attacks him and manges to subdue him. In the struggle Gina's phone falls from her pocket and he retrieves it.
He is part of the raid at Gina's apartment. Liz is showing him the box she found when one of the other searchers shows him the picture of Tom found next to Gina's bed. He tells Liz about Gina's money transfer to Max Ruddigerin the meeting with Harold Cooper where she is asked get Red to locate him and find out what Gina bought.
He leads the search at the port of Houston, and when the car is discovered he drives it into an empty dock, leaping out just before it plunges into the water.
