NBC has released the first promo for The Blacklist season 8 and, in the famed words of one Raymond Reddington, this is gonna be a gas. It’s also going to be one of the most dramatic showdowns we’ve seen on the series to date.
Typically when we enter a certain iteration of the show, we tend to anticipate a new Big Bad entering the fray — think in terms of Alexander Kirk, Berlin, or even Katarina Rostova this past year. This time around, though, it seems like there’s a different approach here with Liz Keen herself set up to be the central adversary for one Raymond Reddington. We know that she has turned against Reddington already in favor of getting answers from her mother — now, it looks like it’s going to be on another level.

With Liz, Reddington understands that he has a formidable opponent. She’s smart, capable of killing, and there’s an emotional bond that makes it harder for him to contend with her. He won’t kill her and, when the dust settles, we do think that he wants nothing other than the best for her. That does make things difficult in these circumstances, and it leads to us wondering this very thing: Why doesn’t Reddington just tell Liz what she wants to know? So much of her turning on James Spader’s character comes back to her frustration that she doesn’t know the truth about her past.
