The Blacklist finally returns tonight after a two week long unexpected break, and I couldn’t be happier! NBC has released the photos for “Anna Gracia Duerte,” and it looks like things are heating up as the Task Force works to bring down Ian Garvey.
When we left the characters last, Red and Liz were a little at odds with each other, as Red decided to strike a sort of deal with Garvey in order to keep whatever his secret is in the suitcase safe. Liz didn’t see him make this deal directly, but she has her suspicions, and it looks like the pot is about to boil over with these two in “Anna Gracia Duerte” tonight. I can’t say I blame Liz for being upset with Red in the slightest. It’s time for him to tell his secret of his own accord before it gets out in a way that he can’t control.
Granted, we have no idea what his secret is at the moment, it really could be something that is a matter of life and death for Red. However, Liz will find out what it is eventually, and it would be better if she heard it from him.
Now that the entire Task Force knows the identity of Ian Garvey as Tom’s killer, they are determined to help Liz get her revenge. However, this may be the start of another conflict, as Liz isn’t interested in staying within the law to bring Garvey down. She’s willing to do whatever she needs to to get her revenge, and it’s yet to be seen if she’ll get push back from the Task Force for this, especially Ressler. Ressler is the moral compass of the Task Force. He has had his own struggles, but generally takes the job of enforcing the law seriously. If Liz ends up painting outside the lines (like she already has) Ressler might try to rein her in. But, we have seen him bend the laws for Liz before when he let her escape from the Task Force headquarters after she shot the Attorney General. I guess we’ll find out if he’s willing to do it again.
