‘The Blacklist’ season 2, episode 19 preview: First details on Megan Boone – James Spader story in ‘Leonard Caul’

The Blacklist logo any seasonThis past episode of “The Blacklist” was significant enough that it could have worked as a proper season finale in many ways. This is, after all, an episode that included Liz Keen more or less throwing the Fulcrum in Red’s face after learning the truth that he was the one who hired Tom, and he set her entire life down this bizarre path that has led her to where she is today. He’s never been a good person, and yet somehow, we are for the most part surprised that he ended up stooping to this level.

So are they going to work together again after this? If we were in Liz’s shoes, we are not entirely sure that we could be convinced almost under any circumstance to go through with this. What in the world would the motive be? The synopsis below makes it clear that Red is going to give this the ol’ college try, but it’s probably going to take a lot to have her really considering this:

“As Red (James Spader) fights for his life, he pleads with Liz (Megan Boone) to track down Nicholas Caul – a mysterious figure from his past with knowledge of The Fulcrum. It’s a race against time for the task force to locate Caul before Red’s life is threatened again, while Tom (Ryan Eggold) proves helpful in an unexpected way.”

One thing that Red may have to consider right now is simple, if he wants to continue to have Liz around: Admit to the truth about everything. If he does this, and makes it clear how he really is connected to her past, it is very well possible that she could be convinced. Even then, though, it is still somewhat of a stretch.
