There's only one episode of the NBC drama “The Blacklist” left this fall and it should be a good one. The show dropped a bomb on fans in episode 7 when it revealed that Zoe (Scottie Thompson) -- the mystery girl that Red (James Spader) had been searching for -- was actually Berlin’s (Peter Stormare) daughter. The prevailing storyline at the end of Season 1 and all of Season 2 thus far has been Red’s war with Berlin based on the latter’s belief that Red murdered his daughter. Zoe’s identity, as the synopsis for episode 8, “The Decembrist,” reveals, changes everything.
Now, according to the synopsis, instead of working against Berlin, Red is working with the man. In the new episode, Red and Berlin will be travelling to Moscow together with a new target -- a high-ranking Russian official. In the promo video, Red says he wants to know why Berlin thought he had murdered his daughter but perhaps the man they're searching for is the one responsible for the big misunderstanding (to put it lightly).
Meanwhile, Liz (Megan Boone) will be trying to keep her secret under wraps. The FBI agent has been holding Tom (Ryan Eggold) prisoner all season without telling Red and she may be in over her head. A promo photo from the episode (seen above) shows Tom well outside the hideout Liz has been holding him in and face to face with Agent Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff). Will Tom escape or has Liz let him out?
Liz and Red might be headed for a bit of confrontation. Red is now working with Berlin to find out who set up Red, but Liz is still hell-bent on killing Berlin. The conflict of interest might cause some problems in the already tense relationship.
Watch the promo for episode 8 below:
Will Red find out who was responsible for framing him? Will Tom escape? Fans will have to wait for the fall finale of “The Blacklist” to find out. “The Decembrist” airs Monday, Nov. 10, at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
