So far on “The Blacklist” season 3, much of what we’ve seen for Elizabeth Keen is a story of survival, and also a story of trying to escape most of the forces that are coming at her. This includes the FBI at times.
The good news for Liz is that coming up later this season, we could actually see the bureau get on the same page with Reddington for the first time in forever. However, that’s pretty much the only good news. As the synopsis below for October 29’s “Arioch Cain” reveals, there will be a variety of other people who are out to take Liz down, and it will be up to everyone else to make sure that they are unsuccessful in their wide variety of attempts:
“An enormous bounty is posted for Agent Keen drawing out any number of unknown assassins while the FBI and Reddington join forces to protect her.”
Who knows? Maybe by the time this particular episodes comes to a close, we will see the show start to become a little bit more at equilibrium with the first two seasons of the show, which followed for the most part a basic pattern. While we are not quite sure that “The Blacklist” is ever going to be at a similar pattern again, we do think that the series will at least do something reasonably similar in the near future. We just may have to wait a while in order to figure out just what that is; this episode, after all, may not be the end for the “Liz on the run” story thanks to us getting close to November sweeps.
