'The Blacklist' Season 1 Episode 8 "General Ludd"

Next on ‘The Blacklist’ Season 1, Episode 8:  “General Ludd,” Liz discovers an elaborate plot to destroy the country’s financial system when Red reveals a new name on the Blacklist. Meanwhile Tom supports Liz when a family member falls sick. Liz and the FBI go after an anti-capitalist cabal that’s intent on bringing the U.S. economy to its knees.

Don’t miss guest star Justin Kirk on the latest episode of The Blacklist, which airs Monday 9/8c on NBC.

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.
