Red (James Spader) and Liz) were put on the defensive in episode 5 of NBC's "The Blacklist" Season 3. With a bounty on Liz's head and all of the world's deadliest assassins on the their tails, it was hard for the fugitive pair to do anything except run and hide. In episode 6, "Sir Crispin Crandall," Red and Liz are turning the tables on the Cabal once again.
According to the synopsis for the new episode, Andras Halmi, a trusted advisor of the CIA Director (David Strathairn) -- and Cabal kingpin -- has gone missing. The advisor may hold the key to clearing Liz's name, so Red puts all his efforts into tracking him down. To do so, Liz and Red have to evade Mr. Solomon (Edi Gathegi). The pair dodged certain death in episode 5 when Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) showed up (alive!) to save the day and rescue them from the Cabal hit man. However, the promo for episode 6 shows the CIA director putting the pressure on Solomon to find them and finish the job.
Meanwhile, Tom might be in over his head. The episode 6 synopsis also reveals that the double agent finds himself caught up in a dangerous "fight club" in pursuit of infiltrating the Russian mob that is hiding Karakurt, the Cabal assassin who framed Liz. In episode 5 Tom went undercover and cozied up to Asher Sutton (Peter Vack), even scoring an invite to the millionaire's engagement party. When he discovered Sutton was being harassed by those same Russian mobsters -- Asher owes them money -- Tom had his "in." He offered to help, which in this case meant shooting one of the mobsters dead and putting them in his trunk -- it is good to have Tom back!
