The lives of Red and everybody on the task force changed forever after the events of “The Blacklist” Season 3, episode 18. Liz appeared to have died of injuries she suffered in a car accident following the birth of her baby girl. Red, Tom and the rest will attempt to move forward with their lives in episode 19, titled “Cape May.”
According to the episode synopsis, Red (James Spader) will “face a ghost from his past” in the aftermath of Liz’s (Megan Boone) death. Before Liz died, she believed the employer who put Mr. Solomon (Edi Gathegi) on her trail was her mother, Katarina Rostova. Fans of the NBC series have yet to meet Liz’s mother, but could this be the person Red will face after having to say goodbye to somebody he cared so much about?
The promotional video teases “a performance everyone will be talking about” while the camera focuses on Red. He will want to be involved in the life of the baby born to Liz and Tom (Ryan Eggold), but after what happened with Liz, Tom could be hesitant to let that happen.
“I won’t let you make the same mistake with her that you made with Liz,” Tom tells Red in the video.
Tom seemingly will be on his own in raising Agnes, and he won’t seek to bring her into any danger. He knows people with whom he used to work could come for him at any moment, including his ex-girlfriend Gina Zanetakos (Margarita Levieva), so he will likely want Red to stay out of his life and away from his daughter.
Cooper (Harry Lennix) and the rest of the task force will also be trying to carry on after losing Liz. In episode 18, they began to crack the surface of the group Halcyon that employed Solomon. After one of Solomon’s men left his headset in a church, the task force was able to trace it back to a house where they were using a “global satellite network” to find out where Liz was being taken. In the wake of their friend’s death, the members of the task force will now be finely focused on the investigation.
