‘The Blacklist’ season 4, episode 11 preview: Liz goes undercover in ‘The Harem’
Tonight’s new episode of “The Blacklist” was one that felt at times like one from the first few seasons of the show, given that Liz Keen was back in the FBI, and in the process of that she had a difficult task trying to take on a complicated, seemingly-impossible case at first glance.
Next week, the gears are shifting once more as we could see an undercover mission for Liz, one that could allow her to star in her own version of the upcoming “Ocean’s Eight.” It’s either that or a twist on “White Collars.” It’s a group of thieves, people! We’re just having a bit of fun here before giving you some of the specifics as to what particularly Liz will be doing (though the photo above is quite the hint).
Synopsis – “Liz must prove herself to the leader (guest star Jill Hennessy) of an elite group of female thieves in order to infiltrate their organization as they prepare for their next heist. Meanwhile, Red (James Spader) contends with unexpected problems in his operations, and Tom (Ryan Eggold) channels his energy into fatherly duties.”
To us, probably the biggest surprise in terms of Liz going undercover is precisely how risky it is for her to do so. You have to remember here that this is someone who is a semi-public figure in that she was on the news for a while, and as a result of that, she does run the risk that someone knows her face and could recognize her as being from the outside.
As for the Reddington story, let’s hope that this is something that we get a little bit more insight about from the promo — there is really not all that much to go on here on the surface.
Promo – Sadly, there’s nothing more in here on Red, but we know that he could be dealing with the aftermath of Dembe telling Liz about Mr. Kaplan, or at least what he thinks happened to her. This clip is more about Liz’s undercover mission, and how in order to successfully infiltrate this gang of thieves (who seem to enjoy stealing from other thieves specifically), she may have to do something that is a little more serious than grand larceny.
