“The Blacklist” season 1, episode 21: “Berlin” airs tonight on NBC.
Liz refuses to work with Red after discovering the truth about the death of her father. Seeking to make amends and force Liz to see him, Red brings the FBI a case they can’t ignore. Meanwhile, Liz reveals what she knows about Tom’s secret life to the FBI.
NBC describes the show as follows:
“For decades, ex-government agent Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington (James Spader, ‘The Office,’ ’Boston Legal’) has been one of the FBI’s most-wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as ‘The Concierge of Crime.’ Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Keen (Megan Boone, ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job. What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. What are Red’s true intentions? Why has he chosen Liz, a woman with whom he seemingly has no connection? Does Liz have secrets of her own? Zamani is only the first of many on a list that Red has compiled over the years: a ‘blacklist’ of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all … with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner. Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal to ‘see the bigger picture’ – whether she wants to or not.”
