‘The Blacklist’ season 2 spoilers: How could Tom Keen return?

The Blacklist logo any seasonRyan Eggold may be a series regular on “The Blacklist,” but we imagine that one of the challenges that the show is having right now is pretty simple: Trying to figure out how in the world they want to use the Tom Keen character on the show the rest of the way. After all, we already know that he is a guy who Reddington has told to stay away. At the same time, he is so important to Liz Keen’s history, and now that we know that he and Red have been working together this whole time, it makes a little more sense that he would pop back in eventually.

As for how it would happen, remember what happened between Tom and the harbormaster at the end of the fall season? Well, executive producer John Eisendrath tells Entertainment Weekly that this could be one of the major reasons why we eventually see Tom pop up once again in this world:

“Tom killed that guy and Liz was there … The residual effect of that is going to come back and be something that will haunt both of them, and in fact, might put Liz in some jeopardy and require Tom to decide whether or not he’s going to assist in helping Liz get out of the trouble that he, in many ways, put her in.”

Obviously, we’d like to see Tom back, and almost in a more evil role than anything we’ve seen so far (which is saying something). Liz cannot expect that you’re going to lock someone up forever and assume that they are going to be reasonably okay with it!

What do you want to see from Tom if and when he comes back on the series? Let us know with a comment.
