The Blacklist season 5 episode 8 preview: Will Tom live or die?

The Blacklist logo any seasonThe Blacklist season 5 episode 8 (which is airing on NBC next week) is more than your standard hour of television; it’s also the big fall finale! It is also the episode that could alter the course of the entire series. “Ian Garvey” is the title, but we know that for most people out there the title is somewhat secondary to a number of other important matters at the heart of the show — including the fate of one Tom Keen. At the start of the season you saw him seemingly die at the hands of Reddington, and the fall finale is going to be when you get some answers as to how that is going to play out.

Will Tom live or die through this confrontation? You may get a chance to learn his fate in this episode — the only other option is that the show leaves you in the midst of a massive cliffhanger and you’re left waiting until January 3 (when the show returns to the air) for some sort of resolution there.

The Blacklist season 5 episode 8 synopsis CarterMatt has for you below offers up a little more insight on what’s coming up:

11/15/2017 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) (Wednesday) : FALL FINALE. When Tom (Ryan Eggold) goes missing, Liz (Megan Boone) desperately retraces his steps in order to find him. Meanwhile Red’s (James Spader) hunt for the suitcase of bones puts him on a collision course with Tom that will change everyone’s lives forever.

Hopefully, The Blacklist (one way or another) gives you some sort of exciting episode that has enough twists and turns so if Tom dies, it’s exciting no matter what you feel about the character. The same goes for if he survives. We just want to be surprised and see the stage set for something epic on the other side.

What we do wonder more than anything is this: If Reddington does choose to kill Tom, how in the world does he talk his way out of this? How is Liz ever going to trust him again? Reddington may be a good talker, but he can’t possibly talk his way out of killing her husband and leaving her child fatherless.

What do you think will happen on The Blacklist season 5 episode 8?
