The Blacklist season 8 episode 12 spoilers: Will Rakitin kill Cooper?

The BlacklistNext week on The Blacklist season 8 episode 12, it’s clear that Harold Cooper will be in a bad way. He’ll have Rakitin to thank for that.

At the end of tonight’s new episode, the notable hacker got instructions from the Man From the East to eliminate Harry Lennix’s character from the equation. There’s not a lot of trust that Reddington will do anything himself; heck, there’s almost a recognition that Reddington isn’t capable of doing it. If he kills Cooper, it would send off a number of ripples, especially since a number of people within the Task Force would probably assume he’s guilty of what happened.

The question we wonder is this: If Cooper was killed, would that actually stop anything? We can’t see Ressler, Aram, or Park suddenly moving away from investigating everything that is going on here.

For a few more specifics on the next story, be sure to check out the full The Blacklist season 8 episode 12 synopsis:

04/02/2021 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) (Friday) : The Task Force’s determination to identify a Russian asset in the U.S. government puts Cooper and Reddington in increasingly treacherous positions. TV-14

What can Reddington do to reduce some of the tension around him? If we had to give him a singular piece of advice right now, it’d be to try and win Harold back over, if possible. Even if there is a lot of distrust here, these two men need each other. They are the only way in which either one of them is going to be able to achieve what they want — the challenge for Reddington will be finding a way to do that without disclosing the true nature of his mission. That’s the secret that has been under wraps from all of us.
