‘The Blacklist’ season 3, episode 18 review: Liz, Tom, Agnes Keen, and Red’s terrible ‘Mr. Solomon’ aftermath
Going into Thursday night’s new episode of “The Blacklist,” we had a suspicion that something huge was going to happen. We just never imagined that this was going to bit: The potential end of the Liz Keen story.
While we watched Liz welcome a child into the world over the course of the hour, one that she wanted to name “Agnes,” it was clear that she was not going to be out of the woods for a number of reasons, from her injuries to complications to everything else that was necessary. Mr. Solomon was hunting her down, and in the end her death may be a turning show in the series. He is the person responsible for what happened in some ways, and of course that is going to escalate the feud between him and Tom in so many ways.
Of course, let’s go ahead and say this: If Liz is actually alive, this is the worst / most pathetic way to toy with fans ever. Don’t fake people out like that unless you REALLY got a way to back this up! For now, what we know is that we saw the character get put into a body bag, and that really suggests to us that she’s gone. The only reason some people may not have given up home entirely is because we have certainly seen ways for people to fake death forever.
For now, we’re just going to assume that she is in fact gone, and if that is the case, what a GUTSY, incredible episode this was, and what an Emmy-worthy performance from James Spader. Episode Grade: A-.
