‘The Blacklist’ season 4: Are Liz and Tom Keen doomed?

Liz -

Mrs. Carter: Can this broken “Blacklist” romance ever be prepared?

Almost from the onset of the series, Liz and Tom Keen were a polarizing pair. That’s kind of what happens when you’re married to someone with a secret double life, and also someone attached to some very bad / mysterious things. Given everything the two went through, it is a miracle in the first place that they ended up together to the point where they would actually get married in season 3.

Yet, look at where we are now. Liz has been captured by Alexander Kirk, a man secretly her father. Tom’s present whereabouts are still in some question, but we know he’s got a chance to work with his own mother in Scottie Hargrave. In theory, the two have a child in Agnes that could keep them together, but with Tom heading over to “The Blacklist: Redemption,” how much time is he really going to have with her? Maybe since the spin-off is eight episodes only, there’ll be opportunities for him to still integrate into the flagship show, but we just don’t see it being in a way that lasts for so long that you guarantee Liz and Tom have a future.

So in the end, we’re moving now into a season of romantic uncertainty for the two of them. There are other places they could go romantically, and other challenges that could await them that are so severe, romance may not be on their mind much. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to watch unfold, largely because they are both people that sometimes have a hard time seeing love through the lens of pain. They found it through each other for a time, but there may be so much pain now that the lens has cracked, and is left in shards along the floor.

Should Liz and Tom figure out a way to make things work? Let us know in the attached poll!
