As we move further and further on The Blacklist season 8, one thing feels reasonably clear in our mind: The idea that things will change. Very few things within the world of the NBC show ever stay the same for long, and that’s even when you consider all of the various bridges that Elizabeth Keen has burned over time. Think in terms of the Task Force, Raymond Reddington, and some various other associates in her life.
Yet, is there still a way for her and her one-time FBI colleagues to work together? You never know, given that Ressler already suspects that Reddington is selling Cooper a false bill of goods. If he can convince the rest of his team that Liz is right with her assumptions, that could change a lot moving forward.

The Blacklist season 8 episode 18 is airing on May 21, and over “The Protean,” some of the changes from the past few weeks could come home to roost. Check out the synopsis below:
05/21/2021 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) (Friday) : The Task Force springs into action to stop an elusive assassin on Liz’s trail. TV-14
Does this synopsis suggest that the Task Force is on Liz’s side? Not necessarily, so we wouldn’t jump so far as to say that Ressler has influenced them entirely. However, what this does indicate to us is that the team may recognize that they need Liz alive — there is still a history there with Megan Boone’s character and beyond just that, she could still be a means to an end. We know that she’s still a part of Reddington’s 30-year project for a reason.
