Thursday night’s new episode of “The Blacklist” proved to be a game-changer for the entire franchise, but not exactly in the way in which you would expect. Liz Keen ended up becoming a free woman, but at the same time she was still charged with a crime. As a result of that, she no longer has her job with the FBI and it’s looking like she may become more of a consultant to help the task force – much like Reddington is. Things are changing quite drastically for her, and she has to figure out a new way to establish normalcy in her life. This could lead to uncertainty and further drama, and we appreciate the show so much for making a big move here rather than playing it safe and giving us the status quo.
In hyping up precisely what the situation will be for Megan Boone’s character moving forward, here is what executive producer Jon Bokenkamp had to say to Entertainment Weekly:
“She’s no longer an FBI agent … Her badge has been taken away. The best thing they can call her is a consultant. She’s almost more like Reddington than she was before. Even though she’s cleared of these crimes that she was framed for — and Reddington was able to configure a plan to have the Cabal back down for the assassination of the attorney general, who was a bad guy — the fallout has driven a real wedge within the team, how they work, and who they are. Everything has become a little bit more gray. There’s a real weight that she carries for everything she’s gone through and continues to go through.”
Bokenkamp also hinted that the Cabal storyline is not entirely over; however, at the same time it will be taking place in a different way than you expect. Be prepared for some more surprises moving forward through season 3.
