Red (James Spader) and Liz (Megan Boone) are a bit tired of running. In episode 3 of NBC's "The Blacklist" Season 3, the fugitive pair decided to go on the offensive against the Cabal instead, taking down Verdiant Industries, the shadow organization's unofficial agrochemical arm. They are just getting started, but the FBI is right on their heels. What will happen in episode 4, "The Djinn"?
According to the synopsis for the new episode, Red and Liz will seek out the help of a mysterious woman, known as the Djinn, who is said to be able to make any fantasy become a reality. The Djinn also does not appear to have a conscience, as the promo reveals that her clients' "fantasies" include murder, torture and revenge. That will suit Liz just fine. Revenge is her goal. In one scene in the promo Liz comes face to face with the Djinn and makes a dangerous request.
"I'm interested in what you deeply desire," the Djinn tells Liz.
"I want the people who did this to pay for what they did," says Liz.
Meanwhile, the FBI are closing in on Red and Liz. As the promo teases, now that Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) and Navabi (Mozhan Marno) know that Red and Liz plan to attack the Cabal, not just run and hide, it will be even easier to track them down. However, they are not the only ones trying to find Liz. In episode 3, Cooper (Harry Lennix) recruited Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) to find Liz and hunt down Karakurt -- the Russian assassin who framed Liz in the first place. It is a risky move for Cooper, who is already on the outs with FBI, but it seems he will do whatever he can to help his former agent.

Will the Djinn help Red and Liz confront the Cabal? Will the FBI catch up to their elusive fugitives? Fans will have to wait to find out. "The Blacklist" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.
