“After Elizabeth’s death, there’s nothing.” These are some of the first words uttered by Raymond Reddington at the start of the new The Blacklist season 9 promo, and of course that makes us wonder big-time on where the character’s head is at.
There’s no denying that James Spader’s character is in his darkest place to date. It’d be a surprise, admittedly, if he wasn’t. For the past thirty years, his primary motive was protecting Liz and doing whatever he could to make sure she was okay — even if that meant killing others.
New The Blacklist video! Check out some of our first thoughts now all about the new promo and what’s coming up. After you take a look at that, remember to SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess on YouTube. There are some more updates ahead and of course, we don’t want you missing any of them.
There are a few interesting tidbits within the first promo for season 9 (see below), but there is still a larger mystery: What about Agnes? Where is she in all of this? She is a descendant of Liz so with that in mind, wouldn’t Reddington care about her? She’s just not mentioned at all here and that, of course, leaves us wondering as to whether or not she’s going to have a big role.
We know that not everyone loves seeing kids featured in prominent roles on primetime shows and we get that; however, if Agnes is just written off entirely it’d feel like a big part of Liz’s life just doesn’t matter all that much. With what we know about these characters, that would just feel strange — even if Reddington isn’t focused at all on the kid, wouldn’t someone like Ressler and Aram care? We tend to think so.
What do you most want to see on The Blacklist season 9, and do you think Agnes still has some role to play?
Be sure to let us know right now in the attached comments! Once you do just that, remember to stick around; there are some more updates ahead and of course, we don’t want you to miss any of them. (Photo: NBC.)
