The Blacklist season 6 episode 17 preview: ‘The Third Estate’ rises

The BlacklistNext week, The Blacklist season 6 episode 17 is going to be diving head-first into the conspiracy story. After all, we’re throwing a lens specifically on the Third Estate! This is a group who was first hinted at earlier this month, with their primary purpose being somewhat tied to what’s going on with the President and Anna McMahon.

Now, they’re getting their own spotlight story, which should be a pretty good sign of how important they are to whatever is happening at the center of the government. We’ve long said that this is the part of the season 6 story that needs a little bit more amplification — there hasn’t been enough of a focus on it and it’s high time that this changes. Of course (and because The Blacklist never wants to do just one thing), we’ve also got another story that is going to show just how far Donald Ressler is going to go in his quest for information on Katarina Rostova. This is his new task, and it’s a dangerous one since he’s not altogether interested in telling Liz about it. (Or, you could say that he’s not too keen — we’ll see ourselves out right now.)

Below, CarterMatt offers up the official The Blacklist season 6 episode 17 synopsis with some more news as to what’s coming up:

04/19/2019 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Friday) : Red (James Spader) and the Task Force spring into action to stop an anti-capitalist terrorist group from kidnapping and torturing the children of the one percent. Meanwhile, Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) goes behind Liz’s (Megan Boone) back to find out what happened to her mother, former KGB operative Katarina Rostova. Jennifer Ferrin and Richard Thomas guest star. TV-14 L, V

This is an episode that will offer up some info, but probably not any answers. We’re still fairly far from the end of the season! That’s what happens when you’re looking at a 22-episode season that does have so many moving parts to it. We still need to see how Ressler’s findings are connected to the issue of Reddington’s identity … and also what’s going to happen in Washington with the Task Force. While we’re not sure the President is the ultimate Big Bad with this show, it wouldn’t come as a shock if they were at least the Big Bad for the remainder of the season. If nothing else, we know exactly where he lines up on the pendulum of good and evil — one that does have a tendency to swing back and forth.
