The Blacklist season 5 sending Liz and Reddington on Ian Garvey collision course

The Blacklist logo any seasonOne of the things that we’ve certainly come to know over time with The Blacklist is simply this: Even though characters may be working together for a period of time, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ve got the same agendas at all. For Liz Keen and Raymond Reddington at the moment, that absolutely seems to be the case. Both parties are targeting Ian Garvey at the moment, but for very different reasons. Garvey has information that could prove very valuable for what happened to  Tom. Reddington doesn’t want that information out there; meanwhile, Liz wants absolutely nothing more than to actually have a little more news on why her husband was killed.

While Liz and Reddington may work together somewhat in their pursuit of Garvey, know this: Forces are eventually going to collide here and it’s going to be ugly. Here’s a little bit more of what executive producer Jon Bokenkamp had to say on that story to Entertainment Weekly:

“We now know that Ian Garvey is a U.S. Marshal, so he has resources and he’s well protected … But what to do with Garvey is the real problem. Red wants Garvey to be buried along with his secret. Liz wants Garvey alive so she can get to the truth behind why Tom died. At some point, those two differing agendas are going to collide.”

When this collision happens it’s probably going to be awesome for us as a viewer. What makes Reddington and Liz so dynamic, and also what makes James Spader and Megan Boone so awesome in these roles, is that the two can play so many different dimensions. There’s something great about seeing the two of them working together; yet, at the same time there’s also something equally strong about having the two coming after each other. There’s a thin line sometimes between love and hate and this series does a good job of playing that with these characters. They care about each other, but how much can they really trust each other — if at all?
