More details of the 8×10 episode of The Blacklist
Liz continues to surprise in the 8th season of the series. After changing sides, it is not always easy to understand the character’s decisions. And although she didn’t show up this week, we know that she is behind orders to arrest and interrogate Reddington. There is no doubt that she wants to murder him. However, the surprise is that she seems willing to hurt anyone on her way – even Dembe.
The episode begins with Dr. Perillo torturing an unknown man. So, she receives a call from Mr. Townsend asking her to return to the United States for an urgent mission, but, so far, we don’t know what that mission is.
The only clue to Townsend’s intentions is the fact that Reddington is after them after discovering that the company and Liz are working side by side. He finds out that the last cash deposit went to Laken Perillos, and he immediately recognizes her name as that of a particularly sadistic investigator who uses a Greek torture instrument invented by her family centuries ago.
